As awards season continues, _shift selects the best looks from the Grammys red carpet.
Last Sunday, New York venue Madison Square Garden played host to the 60th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony. For the first time in 15 years, the ceremony was hosted outside of Los Angeles.
At the Golden Globes earlier this month, the stars all donned black in solidarity with the Time’s Up movement. At the Grammy’s it was an altogether more colourful sartorial affair, with attendees showing support for Time’s Up with a long-stemmed white rose pinned to their dresses and jumpsuits. The white rose was chosen for its symbolism of purity and innocence, in addition to its connection to the feminist suffrage movement.
Renowned for its guests’ show-stopping looks, first on the red carpet – then on stage, the Grammys once again gave its viewers plenty to talk about. Check out _shift’s selection of best dressed below.
Miley’s scantily clad days are over. The singer made her way down the red carpet in an elegant floor length Zac Posen gown. The heart shaped neckline and subtle Hollywood curls made for a classic and sophisticated appearance, resembling pure old school glamour at its cherry best.
_shift loves Eve’s low cut crystal-striped pantsuit. Paired with a diamond necklace, Eve’s monochrome outfit glistened under the flash of the cameras. By going braless – a great way to spice up a suit – her look ensured she was at the top of everyone’s best dressed list.
Best New Artist nominee Julia Michaels wore a sheer lilac gown with a plunging neckline. The pale gown with butterfly embellishments contrasted Michaels’s tattoos well. The Chopard jewellery and soft make-up created a stylish and graceful look.
Many were left stunned with the angel-voiced singer’s updated look. Lana Del Rey’s Gucci look was elegant and romantic, with a playful touch. The cream gown had fluttery sleeves and embellished shoulders. Worn with silver platform sandals and a star halo, it had the internet going crazy for Lana.
After recently flying solo, Camila Cabello’s look guaranteed she shone on her own. The chart-topping singer wore a daring scarlet structured Vivienne Westwood gown and Bulgari diamond earrings, peeking through her dark locks.
The strapless white figure hugging dress and metallic purple knee high boots were an unexpected combination. Surprisingly, it was a fashion success.
Our favourite British homeboy was elegantly dressed in a forest green suit. Smith proved that a suit can look smart even without a shirt underneath, instead opting for a red sweater.
In the palest of pink suits, r’n’b singer Khalid arrived at the ceremony with a big smile. The suit was worn over a pea green turtle neck and matched with chunky “dad” sneakers. _shift loves his innovative red carpet style.
The coolest look on the red carpet was worn by Tyler the Creator. In an ice blue coat matched by a soft Louis Vuitton scarf, the nominated rapper took off his Russian Ushanka hat to reveal a leopard dyed buzzcut.
