The 65th Annual Grammy Awards were not just about the music, but also about the fashion. Annual Grammy Awards red carpet was a display of bold fashion choices and striking ensembles. From Doja Cat’s black latex Atelier Versace gown to Lizzo’s flamboyant orange Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, the stars brought their fashion A-game and served us some of the most memorable red carpet looks of the year. Here are the 13 best-dressed stars of the night:
1. Doja Cat Dazzles in Atelier Versace
Last year, Doja Cat’s Versace gown made waves online for its delicate design. This year, she debuted a “new era” with a black latex Versace gown that was equal parts fierce and fabulous. The asymmetrical strap twisted around her back, matching gloves, and tentacle-like hoop earrings made for a look that was all her own.
2. Cardi B Brings the Drama in Gaurav Gupta Haute Couture
Cardi B continues to be a fashion force to be reckoned with on the Grammy red carpet. Her Gaurav Gupta gown, straight from the couture runway, featured sleeves that enveloped her like a frozen splash of water. The singer never fails to deliver drama and style in equal measure.
3. Lizzo Bloomed in Dolce & Gabbana
Lizzo’s bright orange Dolce & Gabbana ensemble was a sight to behold. The hooded cape covered in flower accents and her face as the centerpiece made for a look that was truly florid. The singer’s corset top and matching skirt, sheer fingerless gloves, and two large diamond rings added to the overall flourish of the ensemble.
4. Steve Lacy in Head-to-Toe Saint Laurent
Recently named the most stylish musician of 2023 by Rolling Stone, Steve Lacy proved his fashion prowess on the red carpet. He wore a double cross tuxedo pinned with a rhinestone and pearl brooch and finished off the look with knife-sharp boots and oversized bug-like sunglasses.
