Let’s be honest, getting dressed for any night out is a nightmare. And that’s before you attend one of the greatest shows on earth, watched by several hundred million viewers worldwide.
So it’s no wonder of the years red carpets have become a little bland. Once upon a time, before ‘slebs had stylists on speedial, red carpet wear was designed to shock. Think Bjork in her swan dress, Cher in her headpieces and JLo taking the plunge in that low cut Versace number (on the arm of P Diddy no less). And who can forget the moment Lady Gaga turned up inside an egg?
But somewhere down the line the A-list ran out of ideas and were all popping up in the same sheer body con dress every time the red carpet was rolled out. Until last night.
The 2019 Grammy Awards was a rollercoaster ride of bizarre ball gowns, dramatic silhouettes and more feathers than a chicken coop.
This year the unofficial dress code was pink, with Katy Pery, Kylie Jenner , Camila Cabello, Jada Pinkett Smith all turning up in variations shade of cotton candy.
But no awards ceremony would be complete without a healthy dose of sparkle and shine: Dolly Parton, Heidi Klum and Meghan Trainor all embraced diamonte detailing while the singer Ashlee Simpson looked every in the daughter-in-law of diva Diana Ross when she arrived covered head to toe in feathers and sequins.
Perhaps the most shocking of all was that Lady Gaga ditched the egg and wore something…normal. And when Gaga is the most subdued dresser of the night, you know your eyeballs are in for a treat. Check out our worst dressed picks below.
We’re not sure we Like It like that, but we’re giving Cardi points for enthusiam.
Is she trying to avoid a cold? That’s the only reason we can imagine why someone worth $900 million would turn up in oversized marigolds.
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag…would have looked better?
Hats off to JLo for trying something new. Seriously Jen – take the hat off. You never want to be the mad looking one when you are standing beside Lady Gaga.
Let’s not forget about the boys. We’re equal opportunities oglers, so let’s all take a moment to take all this in. If Elton John and Dolly Parton had a baby, we’re sure it would be this terffifying.
We’re going to resist making the obvious whack pun. But this is… not good.
She may be Arianna Grande’s BFF, but we’re saying Thank You, Next to this outfit.
No. We have no idea what’s going on here either.
