Thanks to the way Sunday’s 63rd Grammy Awards telecast was developed — with areas of the arrivals pink carpet and musical performances recorded previously — it was difficult to get a bead on who was putting on what and when as nominees and presenters popped in (some in authentic daily life, some by video clip) to chat with Giuliana Rancic all through E!’s preshow coverage.
What it wasn’t hard to do, nevertheless, was determine out what the night’s standout appears (each time and wherever they ended up worn) all experienced in frequent: They were being focus-pulling, statement-earning, about-the-leading, literal-and-figurative rock star appears to be like that appeared to telegraph an unabashed enthusiasm for having out of the stretchy pants and into some thing with pumped-up color, sparkle and quantity.
“Getting dressed was my favored element,” DaBaby explained to Rancic about obtaining all set for the Grammys. He appeared it way too, thanks to the personalized floral Dolce & Gabbana shawl collar tuxedo and the huge-brimmed hat he wore as one particular of the first to hit the purple carpet.
If the appears to be at the Golden Globes heralded the coming spring with pops of eco-friendly, here it was floral motifs that turned out to be one of the evening’s sartorial by way of-traces, thanks to attendees such as Debi Nova (“I wished coloration and bouquets and to make it festive,” she informed E!), who opted for a warm-pink strapless high-lower cocktail dress with a floral-printed hem and educate from the spring and summer season 2020 Georges Chakra couture collection.
Doja Cat’s motocross-meets-flapper Roberto Cavalli appear (a customized development by the brand’s new innovative specialist, Fausto Puglisi) — sort-fitting on best and a flurry of environmentally friendly ostrich feathers on the bottom — was another head-turner many thanks to the open-zipper décolletage that plunged properly south of the navel, producing for what might be the most precariously plunging neckline at the Grammys considering the fact that Jennifer Lopez’s Versace robe at the 2000 awards. (Doja Cat gets added details for highlighting the cat-claw zipper-pull information for the Television viewers.)
In the less-skin-and-more-cloth office were H.E.R. in a burgundy velvet robe and large-leg trouser ensemble (from the slide and winter 2021 Dundas collection) that looked relaxed sufficient to lounge in Phoebe Bridgers in a black Thom Browne cardigan jacket and skirt in black tulle madras trompe l’oeil tweed with crystal and pearl skeleton embroidery and Noah Cyrus in a white Schiaparelli couture search that was portion crumpled bedsheets and aspect flower blossom, in the greatest feasible way.
Even though we didn’t catch Taylor Swift’s arrival on the purple carpet, from the photographs we’ve viewed, it appears she far too was on board with the floral topic, picking out a flower-festooned Oscar de la Renta frock that fell to mid-thigh.
Ticking all the packing containers — and a bunch of bins we did not even know existed — was nominee Megan Thee Stallion, who strike the purple carpet in a vibrant-orange strapless Dolce & Gabbana robe with an immense back bow and a seriously pores and skin-baring leg slit. She accessorized with a sparkly stunner of a diamond necklace by Chopard. “I wanted to pop,” she informed Rancic about the outfit. “I needed to search like a Grammy, and I manifested it.”
And it worked.
In addition to winning the crimson carpet — and the night’s finest-dressed award — she took property Grammy components in 3 of the four groups for which she was nominated. Thee Stallion experienced some competitors in the leg-slit office, while. Dua Lipa wore a form-fitting sparkly Atelier Versace robe that also boasted aspect cutouts just higher than each and every hip. (The pink convertible robe that stripped down to two-piece sparkly amount she carried out in through the telecast was also custom Atelier Versace.)
Host Trevor Noah pumped up the quantity by way of a double-breasted Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo (though he appeared to swap it out for a solitary-breasted tux jacket as soon as the demonstrate bought less than way).
Other standouts were being Undesirable Bunny, who went with an all-black Burberry ensemble that involved a trench coat and a knit cap we’ve dubbed #badbunnyears, and the outfit-changing Billie Eilish, who received the evening’s matchy-matchy award for a Gucci ensemble that integrated not only a long-sleeved top in floral jacquard with tiger particulars and floral jacquard-patterned flared trousers but also a bucket hat, a confront mask, fingerless gloves and fingernail artwork in the same sample.
