With every awards show, it shows us how our favourite celebrities take sartorial risks (and fails): from Lady Gaga sliding into our hearts in her blue Valentino gown to Gemma Chan serving us pretty-in-pink vibes in her Oscar de la Renta ruffled gown. And for those who dare to shine on this year’s Grammy red carpet, the reward is gold. No, wait, #goals.
From the polished suit of Miley Cyrus — thanks to her, going topless in menswear-inspired pantsuits are the new hot bod — to the understated allure of Dua Lipa’s sequin gown, these are the fashion looks that set the precedent for head-turning red carpet moments.
gown: ZAC POSEN
We know, we know. While Ariana Grande was a no-show at the 2019 Grammy Awards, she blessed us with snaps on her Instagram of the custom Zac Posen gown she would have worn. Her Cinderella-esque gown and her 95-carats haute couture diamond choker, however, won our hearts and earned her a spot on our best-dressed list.
Miley Cyrus has done it again — this time, in a daring yet ultra-chic pantsuit courtesy of Mugler. Just what the red carpet ordered.
We adore a dramatic tulle gown, especially when Bebe Rexha pairs it with another fabulous accessory: confidence.
Always here for a silver blinged-out moment on the red carpet is Dua Lipa. The Grammy winner makes ice queen elegant in this sparkling number, upping the ante with Bvlgari jewels and crystal nails.

Fun fact: Lady Gaga’s 91-carat diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co. took over a year to create! She continues to bring the va va voom in an asymmetrical Celine gown. Stunner.

Unsure of how to wear backless dresses? Take a tip from Camila Cabello. The singer wowed in a hot pink sequin dress and rocked diamond cluster earrings from Harry Winston.

Kasey Musgrave charmed us with a romantic, strapless tulle Valentino gown complete with a berry-coloured belt. We heard her pleated dress was even inspired by the fan on her Golden Hour album cover.
