Grammy Awards 2022: Best fashion on the red carpet

The red carpet turned pink as music’s biggest names brought fluorescent colors, playful accessories and plenty of drama to the 64th Grammy Awards in Las Vegas.

The Grammy Awards have a reputation for attracting bolder, riskier and more eye-popping fashion than almost any other major award ceremony — and the stars didn’t disappoint as they arrived on the red carpet Sunday evening.

Held in Las Vegas for the very first time, the event’s 64th edition was initially slated for January but was postponed due to Covid-19. But the pandemic felt like a distant memory as mask-less celebrities showed up sporting elaborate outfits, fun accessories and freshly dyed hairdos.

Although some of the night’s biggest names opted for black — from Dua Lipa in a sheer Versace bondage dress dripping with gold to Billie Eilish in a voluminous Rick Owens gown — it was pink that reigned large at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Double-nominee Saweetie stunned in a hot pink Valentino two-piece with matching opera gloves. Chrissy Teigen and St. Vincent was also impressed in dramatic ruffled creations, both in slightly lighter shades of the color.

The evening’s men also got in on the trend, with Travis Barker wearing a silky pink robe, Trevor Noah sporting a pastel-colored tuxedo jacket and red-carpet fixture Billy Porter wowing in a spectacular florescent creation from Valentino’s Fall-Winter 2022 womenswear collection.

Elsewhere, BTS members looked suave in a complementary array of colorful custom Louis Vuitton suits. Justin Bieber took a more relaxed approach, with an oversized suit accessorized with one of his signature beanies (this one also embraced the hot pink trend).

Numerous stars looked to show-stopping detailing, sequins and embroidering to make a statement, with Jasmine Sanders and Lil Nas X both opting for butterfly embellishments in, respectively, a long-sleeved gown and theatrical Balmain suit.
Others, meanwhile, had fun with accessories — see Halsey’s sculptural hat, Doja Cat’s candy-filled glass bag and Olivia Rodrigo’s choker, one of several Y2K throwbacks on display. There was plenty of playful nail art and colorful hair, too, from Japanese Breakfast front woman Michelle Zauner’s bright yellow fingertips, which were intricately painted to match her Valentino gown, to J Balvin’s blue trim.

And it wouldn’t be the Grammy’s without some more outlandish choices. HER divided social media with a custom yellow-and-orange kaftan jumpsuit by Dundas, while British singer Yola, who was nominated for best Americana Album, needed help from several other attendees to unfurl the full splendor of her head-to-toe purple outfit .

The oddest outfit of the night, however, came from singer and songwriter Tayla Parx who arrived in a costumey spiked jumpsuit that saw her compared to Nintendo character Bowser.
