The Grammy’s, aka the biggest night in music, was held in Las Vegas last night. And seeing as you all seemed to enjoy my previous Fashion Police post for the Oscars, I decided to go ahead and do it again!
Admittedly, I’m much more into film and television than music, but I always enjoy seeing red carpet fashion.
So, here’s my take on the Grammy’s fashion—the trends, the highlights, and a few low points.
The fashion at the Grammy’s tends to fall into one of two categories: Safe and Everything Else. Aside from the Met Gala, I’d argue that the Grammy’s has the most interesting looks on the red carpet.
It’s way more fun to look at the fashion risks, but I’d probably go with a safer choice too if I were on the red carpet. And, even though it’s a simpler gown, I was loving Hailey Bieber’s slinky silver ensemble.
Almost all of the other categories on this list have a hefty amount of fashion risks. But, here are just a few of the edgier fashion choices I saw last night.
Just an FYI, Donatella is in her 60’s and she is absolutely killing it in this sexy cut-out dress.
Grammy’s 2022: Trend Watch
Just like with the Oscars, there are certain trends that stand on each red carpet event. And this red carpet was no different.
Here are some of the trends I saw at the 2022 Grammy’s
This was one of my least favorite trends—I did like Chelsea Handler’s dress, but the rest of the black lacy gowns seemed like they had way too much going on.
Cut-Outs & Sheer Dresses
I noticed a lot of cut-out dresses with odd cut-out placements last night. For the most part, this was a trend I didn’t much care for. That said, I did love Bella Harris’ and Kali Luchis’ looks.
Unique Texture & Structure
The Grammy’s is one of the best places to play with style, and all the various textures and fabrics certainly proved it. I absolutely loved Melody Thornton’s dress. There were ruffles, polka dots, and a sheer aspect, but it worked. Paula Arena’s dress was also one of the stand outs for me.
From Emerald to teal to lime, there was plenty of green on the red carpet. Of these looks, Sophia Carson’s and Doja Cat’s stood out to me as being amazing. As was the one worn by Jennifer Koh. It had so much shimmer and fit her beautifully.
In my opinion, yellow is one of the hardest colors to wear well, so I applaud all of these beauties for pulling it off so well. I was absolutely here for Michelle Zauner’s sweet yellow frock. And Victoria Evigan wore one of the most fun gowns of the evening.
Gold & Silver
I feel like award shows always have a certain amount of gold and silver dresses, but I’m not complaining! Tiffany Haddish looked amazing in her shimmery gold gown.
I adored Paris Hilton’s dress—again, there was a lot going on but it absolutely worked! And Rachel Zegler is quickly becoming one of the best dressed stars on the red carpet this season.
This was a fun and rather unexpected trend that I saw. Pink, especially bright fuscia, was definitely having a moment. Saweetie gave some modern Marilyn Monroe vibes in her fuscia two piece ensemble complete with elbow length gloves.
And I was absolutely loving the bubblegum ballgown worn by Chrissy Tiegen. St. Vincent’s was also one of my favorites from last night.
No boring menswear at the Grammy’s!
I was so into that nude floral gown that SZA wore. And of course, Joni Mitchell is an absolute legend who looked fabulous.
At every awards show, there are certain gowns that always seem to make an appearance. Granted, even the timeless traditions have a unique spin at the Grammy’s.
Lady Gaga’s dress may have been safer than what she used to wear, but she looked unbelievably beautiful.
As for Olivia Rodrigo’s dress, I was a little torn. It fit her to a T and she looked absolutely stunning, but I was a little underwhelmed by it. Especially considering it was such a big night for her.
There were plenty of ball gowns on the red carpet and I was here for it! Aubrey Johnson’s was gorgeous and Carrie Underwood looked like a queen.
Sometimes one dress just isn’t enough. There are usually plenty of outfit changes at the Grammy’s (and I’m not just talking about the after parties!) Here were some that stood out to me:
Saweetie had two outfit changes—one on the red carpet and another once she was inside the ceremony. All three of her gowns looked amazing.
As for Spice, hers wasn’t so much an outfit change as an outfit reveal. I’ll admit, I didn’t quite care for the large red overcoat, but I was a fan of the gown underneath.
I’m a big fan of Megan Thee Stallion and her fashion choices are always fun to watch.
Best and Worst of the Night
Best Dressed Ladies – My Top 3
There were so many amazing looks on the Grammy’s red carpet that it was hard to pick just 3 favorites. But, eventually I narrowed it down to these three.
A lot of people weren’t loving Carrie Underwood’s, but I thought she was one of the best of the night. And Doja Cat’s gown was absolutely perfect for the Grammy’s. Finally, Lady Gaga looked chic and elegant in her black and white dress.
Best Dressed Men
Trevor Noah, the night’s host, wore a subtle shade of pink and looked fantastic. And I’m always a fan of Lil Naz X and his fashion choices.
My Worst Dressed List
It’s equally hard to pick for the worst dressed—especially at the Grammy’s since everyone is having so much fun with their fashion choices. But I just wasn’t feeling these looks. Except for Laura Seguara’s, I actually really liked the dress, it just didn’t seem to fit with the occassion.
Top 3 Worst Dressed
I love Billie Eilish, but sometimes her fashion choices just confuse the heck out of me! And as much fun as Yola seemed to be having, I couldn’t look at her gown without picturing Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
Loved seeing all the outfits! I really loved the green and yellow trends. My favourite must be Laverne Cox, loved the sheer lace x
I thought that one was a little too busy for my taste, but I’m normally a huge fan of her red carpet looks.
I loved seeing all of these outfits in one place! Paris Hilton’s was one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing!
Same, she looked beautiful and elegant, but also fun and edgy. A perfect look for the Grammy’s
The costume is so weird!
I thought so too! I know the Grammy’s are a more experimental red carpet, but come on now!
There is always such a wide variety of formal wear at awards shows – particularly at the Grammy’s where everyone wants to make a statement. I love Lady Gaga’s choice of dress – even when she wears something more abstract she is always a class act. Fun post! Thanks for sharing.
Not going to lie, I sometimes miss the Meat Dress days. But her new look is so chic and classy. I can’t hate on it
There were quite a few statement outfits at the Grammy’s
Agree – I love the ones that are fun and different!
i feel like there was so much variety in fashion this year, which i love! olivia rodrigo’s dress was perfect for her! loved it.
the blue lipstick for billy porter was a complete flop…
A lot of people really loved her look, but I was kind of disappointed by it. Don’t get me wrong, it was beautiful, but it was her night and I felt like she could’ve gone bigger with her fashion choice.
yes, now i can see how it could be seen as a “safe” look.
To be fair, I’d probably play it safe too. But I love seeing the risks on the red carpet.
I loved Olivia Rodrigo’s dress. She was stunning
I did like it- from certain angles, it looked a bit plain, but then once you could see the shimmering purple streaks, it was more interesting. It just wasn’t as over the top as I like for the Grammy’s.
I always love seeing the looks from award shows, and wow this is an amazing post. It’s insane that Donatella Versace is in her 60’s, she looks amazing, and I love the colour of the dress. Totally agree that Melody Thornton looks beautiful too xx
Yes, I know! Props to her for being able to pull that off.
