Music’s biggest stars certainly turned it up for this year’s 66th Annual Grammy Awards, with custom outfits and vintage couture and a surprising number of gilded metallic looks, to honour a glitzy night full of iconic moments — that’s everything from a major Taylor Swift album announcement, to rockin’ performances from Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa, and more. Here, we round up some of the best dressed stars of the evening.
Taylor Swift in Schiaparelli couture
Ahead of the Asia and Australia leg of her Eras Tour, Taylor Swift — one of the night’s most cameo-ed attendees — dressed to win big at this year’s Grammys, as if she somehow knew she’d be bagging both the coveted Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for Midnights. That’s a mastermind for ya!
On the red carpet, she wore a white Schiaparelli couture gown with a high slit and sculptural silhouette, paired with black opera gloves for extra drama, and a watch choker dripping with diamonds and set to midnight, of course. As always, she didn’t miss a beat when dropping a surprise announcement during her acceptance speech — Taylor’s next album, The Tortured Poets Department, will be out on 19 April.
Miley Cyrus in Maison Margiela
Flowers got its flowers alright, with Miley Cyrus’ smash hit snagging two accolades for Best Pop Solo Performance and Record of the Year, marking the singer’s first-ever Grammy wins. Miley’s ecstatic energy felt like it leapt through the screen when the singer took the stage at the show’s halfway mark to perform her catchy single (and interjecting with “then remembered… I just won my first Grammy!”), and also later when, in typical Miley fashion, she quipped “Thank you all so much. I don’t think I forgot anyone… but I might have forgotten underwear. Bye!” while accepting her second award for the night.
While Miley had plenty of outfit changes throughout the evening, her red carpet look, of a custom Maison Margiela by John Galliano gown fashioned from hundreds of gold safety pins, made her look every bit a warrior; it might just be topped by her elaborately-coiffed hair that seemed to channel her musical inspiration and godmother, Dolly Parton.
Olivia Rodrigo in Versace
No award, no problem — lest we forget that we’re looking at a three-time Grammy winner here. Olivia Rodrigo took it up a notch with a classy white gown that’s a vintage Versace pieces, one that had originally debuted in 1995 on Linda Evangelista. This masterpiece is embellished with red and white crystals thoughtfully across the hourglass silhouette, which the Vampire singer paired with a bold red lip and sultry eyeliner. Not a bad idea at all.
Dua Lipa in Courrèges and Tiffany & Co.
Dua Lipa proved she was every bit the pop star as claimed, when she kicked off the night with an explosive performance of her current single Houdini. So of course her red carpet look didn’t fall short at all — the custom silver gown by Courrèges was a shimmery sight, complete with cut-outs at the hip and a deep plunging neckline balanced out by its slouchy boho silhouette. Across her neck was a Tiffany & Co. necklace of platinum and yellow-gold, embellished with sapphires, rubellites and diamonds, featuring a pair of koi.
Victoria Monét in Atelier Versace
You’re looking at this year’s Best New Artist! In a highly-stacked category filled with worthy nominees, singer-songwriter Victoria Monét managed to edge out the competition while also winning Best R&B album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for her full-length debut Jaguar II. Just as iconic was this bronze Atelier Versace number on the red carpet, done with a corset bodice that contrasted with silky fabric that led all the way to the gown’s train. This was a winning — and twinning — look, especially since she brought along her two-year-old daughter Hazel, who was dressed in a matching style.
