The marathon carpet kicked off with some notable looks, including a bright orange moment from Lizzo.
LOS ANGELES — Lizzo wowed in a bright orange Dolce & Gabbana dress adorned with flowers and an oversized hood that was wild and outrageous. The Grammys Red Carpet Sunday did not fail to disappoint. Ripped streetwear, t-shirts and denim mixed with blinged-out couture, wild patterns and plenty of skin.
Lizzo walked softly as she steered a heavy, long train that left her with very little peripheral vision. After a while, she dropped her dress over her shoulders to reveal a kissable sequin gown in a soft orange underneath.
“Lizzo is a flower garden in her ruffled orange 3D dress with a matching corset dress underneath,” said Holly Katz, a stylist and host of the Fashion Crimes podcast. “And we love to hear him roar!”
The marathon carpet kicked off with some remarkable looks. Douja Kate, always pushing her fashion envelope, appeared in a latex, one-shoulder and skin-tight black gown with long matching Atelier Versace gloves. Baby Rexha glowed head-to-toe in hot pink with a twist and va-va-voom halter bra.
There were blonde crowns (Matt B), glittery mouths (But Jesus) and epic tattoos (Alisha Goodies). And almost every color was represented on the color wheel.
Slouchy and roomy spoke to many men, as was a pair of embroidered denim shorts for Benny Blanco.
Who can’t stop talking about Douja Kate donning 30,000 red Swarovski crystals for Paris Fashion Week? Well, she definitely doesn’t disappoint at the Grammys because she totally channeled the queen of darkness,” Katz said. “Mia Farrow’s ’60s haircut was a perfect match for the look.”
Viola Davis, meanwhile, completed her EGOT by winning a Grammy at the Grammys pre-telecast ceremony in a red, silver and blue tiered sequin short-sleeved gown by Naeem Khan.
Shania Twain is not ready for the Grammys. She is not presenting. It freed her up to have fun with fashion, she says. Twain had red hair and his Harris Red wide-leg pantsuit was decorated with large black polka dots against white. She topped it off with a tall, matching wide-brimmed hat.
“Here I am with all my new fun things to wear,” she says. Reid is a young British-American designer she wanted to support. Her motto: “I just wanted to add some pop and cheer.”
Laverne Cox was “Wakanda forever” in her custom strapless leather Kim Casas war figure dress and African-inspired jewelry, Katz said. “Paying homage to African culture through fashion is always in style.”
