Alternative Dressers Steal the Show
The Grammys have never been known for their old Hollywood glamour, but this year, a few fashion forward moments made for agreeable breathers in the midst of all the glitz. Miley Cyrus stunned as a golden Barbarella deity, wearing a mostly-naked gown made of an impressive 14,000 safety pins by Maison Margiela. Dua Lipa turned heads in a loose-fitting, all-silver Courrèges dress complete with slits at the hips, while Olivia Rodrigo wore a crystal embellished vintage Versace gown from the SS95 collection.
A Defiant Display of Individuality
Leading the pack of alternative dressers was Billie Eilish, who sported a Chrome Hearts white shirt and tie, black slacks, and a Barbie-branded bomber jacket. Spice Ice put a noughties spin on the mob wife trend with a fur-trimmed denim jacket and trailing skirt by Baby Phat. Doja Cat embraced provocation in an almost entirely sheer, corseted number by London-based designer Dilara Fındıkoğlu, going as far as to have Fındıkoğlu’s name temporarily tattooed across her forehead.
Beyoncé and Taylor Swift Make Their Mark
Beyoncé eschewed the red carpet but still managed to steal the show in Pharrell Williams’ latest Louis Vuitton menswear offering. She donned a leather studded blazer, skirt, and a collection highlight cowboy hat. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift, the night’s big winner, accepted her album of the year award in a pure white Schiaparelli gown, paired with armpit-length black lycra gloves. Some couldn’t help but notice her striking resemblance to the late Princess of Wales, who attended the Baftas in 2023. Coincidence or calculated fashion choice? You decide.
