Cardi B., meanwhile, wore a bombshell, sculptural electrical blue robe with huge shoulders and a headpiece over a single eye.
“I’m seeking, I’m making an attempt,” she told photographers as she diligently walked down the carpet.
Cardi’s glimpse was from Gaurav Gupta’s latest selection, “continuing to prove she intrinsically understands the delicate type dynamics of the Grammys carpet. It is not about remaining silly, but somewhat earning a assertion,” explained Bianca Betancourt, electronic lifestyle editor for Harper’s Bazaar.

Anitta also manufactured a splash in black Versace from 2003.
“She went towards a far more gothic aesthetic,” Betancourt stated. “The flowing robe was sublimely customized and showed the global star undertaking crimson carpet magnificence in her possess way. It was even now alluring, nevertheless youthful, but continue to elevated. It did not seem clearly classic, which is a testament to Donatella’s artistry.”
Equipment Gun Kelly, who typically pushes into edgy trend, was in a silver double-breasted laminated foil accommodate with a Swarovski crystal harness. It was personalized Dolce & Gabbana. He was accompanied by Megan Fox in creamy Zuhair Murad. Her gown had a corset bodice and coronary heart embroidered applique.
Sam Smith was in fire motor crimson. They have been accompanied by Kim Petras, and drag queens Violet Chachki and Gottmik in the similar color. Smith wore a best hat with a veil. They, as well, wore matching gloves, a craze of the night.
Monochrome was a important topic, Betancourt claimed.
“It’s a great way to experiment with more avant-garde seems to be although nonetheless retaining a perception of stylistic structure,” she mentioned. “Lizzo and Kacey Musgraves also opted for monochrome and textured looks from Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino.”
The marathon carpet kicked off with some noteworthy appears. Doja Cat, constantly pushing her vogue envelope, confirmed up in a vinyl, just one-shoulder and skintight black robe with extended matching gloves from Atelier Versace. Bebe Rexha sizzled in very hot pink with twists from head to toe and a va-va-voom halter bodice, proving that Barbiecore is heading powerful. The appear was Moschino by Jeremy Scott.
Musgraves, in Valentino, also took the Barbie take note with a feathery cape in a lighter pink hue in excess of a catsuit.
There have been golden crowns (Matt B), glittery mouth bling (Alligator Jesus) and epic tattoos (Alisha Gaddis). And lots of slouchy and roomy seems that spoke to a lot of of the gentlemen, as did an embroidered denim shorts ensemble for Benny Blanco.
“While there weren’t any giant, unmissable, overwhelmingly well-known pink-carpet developments on the men’s style front, that in fact proved to be a constructive this year. It gave the more compact trends a minor bit much more area to shine,” Evans stated.
His most compelling? The double-breasted suit, or jacket.
“It’s not just a 2023 detail, of program, but the reputation of the DB tends to ebb and move, and it appears like this year could be a extremely great one particular for the silhouette. LL Cool J, Jack Harlow, Saint JHN and Scott Evans all wore a model of it. They all appeared great, and the genuinely great detail is that men in all walks of lifetime can emulate their outfits and appear equally amazing,” he explained.
Evans also experienced views on all that denim.
“Miguel was decked out in it. Benny Blanco, way too. The appears to be had been seemingly built with the phrase ‘divisive’ in brain, but they smacked of a type of youth-society interesting that embraces that term as a substitute of shying away from it. Appreciate ’em or hate ’em, those outfits appear to be like a bellwether of a a lot more denim-ahead environment in the close to long term, so choose be aware,” he stated.
But again to Doja Cat’s vinyl.
“Who cannot prevent conversing about Doja Cat donning 30,000 pink Swarovski crystals for Paris Manner 7 days? Very well, she certainly doesn’t disappoint at the Grammys as she completely channeled the queen of darkness,” Katz stated. “The Mia Farrow 60′s haircut was a perfect match for this seem.”
Betancourt was also a Doja lover.
“The look was gritty, attractive and significantly like Doja herself, forward-thinking. Her makeup also deserves a notable mention. It was an beautiful cat eye (pun supposed) by Ernesto Casillas with a juicy metallic glossed lip that echoed the early aughts, but completed without the kitsch most 2000s-motivated looks usually perpetuate,” she stated.
Viola Davis, meanwhile, done her EGOT by winning a Grammy at the Grammys pre-telecast ceremony in a Naeem Kahn red, silver and blue tiered sequin short-sleeved robe.
Shania Twain is not up for a Grammy. That, she said, freed her to have fun with trend. Twain’s hair was red and her Harris Reed large-belled pantsuit was adorned with large black polka dots against white. She topped it off with a towering, matching wide-brim hat.
“Here I am with all my new exciting matters to wear,” she explained. Reed is a young British American designer she required to assistance. Her intention: “I just wished to increase some pop and cheer.”
Twain, claimed Katz, “definitely scored in the avant-garde group but does kind of seem like she just stepped out of Alice in Wonderland.”

Cox’s leather costume by Kim Kassas honors the vision of the late trend editor Andre Leon Talley. There was one more vibe on her mind: “Egyptian/Cleopatra.”
