From Flop to Fabulous: Top Grammy Fashion Picks

Hadley Norris
Which celebrities sported the best and worst Grammy outfits?

The 66th Annual Grammys took place on Sunday, Feb. 4, in Los Angeles. The Grammys are an award show held every year, rewarding artists for their music with categories such as Album of the Year and Song of the Year. Celebrities see the Grammys as a chance to show up and show off, and as always, the outfits ranged from absolutely amazing to absolutely horrendous. 

Calvin Harris– 2/10

In a brown suit-pant-shirt set, Harris was an eyesore on the carpet. The pattern of the suit is reminiscent of a hotel curtain, and not in a good way. I think his jacket and his shirt clashed way too much, and there was too much chaos for a red carpet-look. While I can appreciate divulging from the classic (and boring) black suit, Harris missed the mark with this one.

Summer Walker– 3/10

While the dress itself isn’t that bad, paired with the hat it reminds me of a feather boa. The dress had a beautiful silhouette and texture, but the hat completely threw off the image by being too big and loud. I think the hat sends the look just a little bit too far into the carpet area, which isn’t an area that you generally want to be in.

Ice Spice– 3/10

Denim and fur are a combination that rarely looks good. Ice Spice isn’t an exception to this rule and her raggedy denim skirt didn’t compliment the jacket at all. While denim on denim is a rising fashion trend, it doesn’t actually look good, especially paired with fur. A little bit of denim can look fine or even add to an outfit, but Ice Spice had too much and it gave off a country vibe.

Caroline Polachek– 4/10

When I first saw this look, I thought it was striking. When I got closer, I liked it less and less. The pattern of the red spot was distracting and took away from the overall look. While the lightning bolts are interesting to look at, the spot is too loud to allow the lightning bolts to have any effect. From far away, it just looked like she was making a statement (especially with the big skirt), but as you got closer, the spot drew more and more attention until it was all you could see.

Chrissy Teigen– 4/10

At first glance, this dress wasn’t that bad. The top was cute and the black and pink looked good together, but the bottom was not very good-looking. It was too distracting and big, and it took too much away from the top. This dress had good potential, but the skirt was too short and wide to go with the top. 

Olivia Rodrigo– 5/10

The cut and color of the dress looked really good on Olivia, but the beads gave a weird weight to the top. The dress itself did have a sort of timeless feel to it, but the beads kind of threw off the whole outfit. I liked the dress but I feel like she could have done a lot better.

Taylor Swift– 6/10

Her dress was gorgeous and the top was amazing, especially with the gloves. The only problem was that her hair was kind of messy which did throw off the outfit. It was a good way to throw fans off and make them think she was going to announce Reputation (Taylor’s Version) at the Grammys but I feel like she could have gone for a bit of a cleaner look.

Laufey– 7/10

I like the pattern and the colors of the dress, and the waist chain is pretty. My only note is that the cut was kind of jarring and I didn’t think it looked very good on her. I think a different, rounder cut would have looked a lot better and gone with the style better. I did like the polka dots, and I think she looked really good in pink.

John Legend– 7/10

I liked the cinch in the middle and the silhouette – it was a good twist on the classic black suit. It was simple enough that it still looked good while being one color. Even though it had just one color, it still had enough texture to look good. While the “classic black suit” is a staple of any awards show, it’s also pretty boring, which Legend has managed to steer clear of.

Janelle Monáe– 8/10

The silhouette of this dress is gorgeous and it looked so good on her. The black and the silver complemented each other perfectly and the line down the middle brought a good weight to the bottom and drew your eye to it. I think these colors looked really good on her, and my only note is that I didn’t like the choker with the dress.

Lauren Daigle– 8/10

I loved her hat and the cut and the color of her dress. Her braids were cute, and I liked the embroidery’s colors, but the embroidery pattern is too chaotic and takes away from the dress. Her hat gave it a country vibe, and she looked like she was about to go frolic in some fields.

Billie Eilish– 8/10

While this isn’t the traditional style to wear to the Grammys, it works for Billie. The jacket is a good callback to the Barbie movie while still looking Grammy-worthy. The jacket also goes with her hair well and overall she looks happy. While most female artists might wear a dress or something more revealing, Eilish has said in interviews that she feels more comfortable wearing baggier clothing, and I’m glad that she’s valuing her comfort over societal norms.

boygenius– 10/10

I loved their matching suits, and I think the pink carnations were a gorgeous callback. They contrasted the white of the suits perfectly, and they’re enough to make any boygenius fan cry, especially as this is their last public appearance together before their hiatus. The pink carnations were a reference to the song We’re In Love, which member Lucy Dacus wrote about her bandmates Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker about how they’ll find each other in every universe.
