The 62nd annual Grammy Awards is a night traditionally known as one of the most bold and outrageous award ceremonies in terms of fashion-wise.
Some of the most buzzed-about stars hit the red carpet in the Staples Centers in Los Angeles and they show us style moments that one will not forget. Over the years, many celebrities have take major risks with their Grammy Awards fashion, and for some it has paid off.
It also was a somber atmosphere on Sunday’s award show, as news broke that basketball legend Kobe Bryant had died earlier in helicopter accident.
Here are this year fashion hits and misses, with some making the ‘On the Fence’ list. See which stars shined or missed the mark in the list below.

Joy Villa turned heads at the Grammy Awards with yet another bold pro-Trump inspired gown. The gown by Desi Allinger of Desi Designs featured an overcoat with blue and white star detailing. When she opened the overcoat, the gown revealed a plunging red halter dress embellished with white letters that spelled out “TRUMP” down the center. The gown also read “2020” along the bottom. Under the long hem of her statement gown, she chose to match the political look with a “Betsy Ross” American flag-patterned patent pump with a red heel.
Bebe Rexha slayed the red carpet in this plunging Christian Cowan pantsuit that featured a netted detail with black and sparkly sequins on the neckline. She also extended the netted detail on her sleeve to create a glove-like detail.
Camila Cabello stunned in a strapless black sequin gown from Atelier Versace. The gown consisted of two parts: a strapless minidress with large Swarovski crystals that was crafted from woven leather and a layered tulle skirt that opened in the front to show the rest of the lacy minidress.
Alessandra Ambrosio showed off her long, toned legs in a black and white Balmain frock. The Balmain ensemble was a half full-length frock, half white black-belted bodysuit, which she paired with cool Gianvito Rossi sandals.
Cardi B skipped the Grammy Awards red carpet, but she showed off her dreamy gown on Instagram. Wearing a CustomMugler nude floor-length long sleeves sheer gown, it featured a body-skimming silouhette, and crystal detailing covering the whole design in glimmering stripes. This whole look is a walking piece of jewelry.
Alicia Keys in Atelier Versace. This look embodied everything that makes the best dressed list, without trying too hard—from all-over sequins, to a cinched waist and a sky-high slit. Perfection!
Lizzo didn’t disappoint in this angelic Atelier Versace gown. The white gown featured a slinky silhouette embroidered with sparkling crystals and was topped with a white fur stole.
JoJo arrived to the red carpet in this strapless slinky silver gunmetal gray number from Rhea Costa design that was complete with navy sparkles and ruching. The gown had an interesting feature that made her gown enter the Best list — a bedazzled chain across the slit of her thigh.
Priyanka Chopra wore a Ralph and Russo Spring 2018 couture gown with hand-painted peonie. The low-cut dress featured an incredibly low v-neck that revealed her belly button piercing. The ill-fitting bohemian-inspired gown with a very deep neckline, fringe and flower embroidery detail has too much going on for this gown.
Tove Lo wore a Vivienne Westwood grey pantsuit and Agent Provacateur pink bra, both vintage, with matching crystal-embellished Miu Miu pumps. The exposed bra and the color of it just ruined this whole outfit.
Jameela Jamil arrived on the red carpet in a strapless electric blue ballgown by Georges Chakra.Her strapless frock included thick ruffled detailing over the bodice and down the full skirt, and also inexplicably featured a stripe of sheer black fabric in the middle. This look would have been actually be super disco-chic … if it weren’t for the mesh gap. Epic Fail!!
Tyler the Creator donned this strange pale pink getup by Golf Le Fleur with gold button details, and really committed to the bellhop theme with a red bellhop hat, white gloves and a matching pink suitcase. Despite the very unique ensemble, we just couldn’t understand this funky choice for the Grammys.
Chrissy Teigen made a splash in this bold orange Yanina Couture gown. The gown featured a low-cut neckline plunged all the way down to her waist with a ruffle in the center of her torso and three-dimensional statement sleeves. Although the color and the peplum layer at the waist was perfect, the dress could have done without the dramatic mismatched sleeves and distracting slit.
Ricky Rebel disappointed with a bizarre red lace ensemble complete with an enormous umbrella. When he turned around, he revealed his bare buttocks in a cut-out trousers with ‘IMPEACH THIS’ written across his behind. He could have made a better political statement like he did last year than showing off his buttock.
On the Fence
Billy Porter made another iconic red carpet appearance with a blue, crystal-fringe flared jumpsuit complete with a matching cropped three-quarter-length jacket from Baja East. Despite always making the best-dressed list previously, this outfit made the ‘On the Fence’ list because the Sarah Sokol Millinery hat that featured chandelier fringe that moved threw many off.
Ariana Grande made the best dressed list everywhere rocking a massive pale gray ballgown from Giambattista Valli. It featured layer upon layer of fluffy tulle and was accessorized by matching evening gloves. The layered tulle skirt that was reportedly 20 feet in diameter. Personally, this dress is perfect for another occasion, not the Grammys.
Billie Eilish made history-making at the Grammys, but her outfit not so much. She wore a neon green and black Gucci oversized ensemble on the red carpet, which perfectly matched her hair colour. The singer paired the look with a black and green Gucci face mask top with Gucci logo manicure. Even though it stayed true to her very unique personal style, it is hard to place this outfit in either category.
Pia Mia opted for a silver fringe-clad silver minidress from Julien Macdonald, which she paired with a white clutch. The halter-style frock felt more appropriate for a night out than a fancy red carpet.
