Since its inaugural edition in 1959, the Annual Grammy Awards reunite la crème de la crème of music to celebrate the industry’s outstanding achievements. The event is regarded as one of the biggest nights in entertainment for a reason: it reflects the cultural zeitgeist and delivers memorable moments.
The award ceremony is also the perfect backdrop for stars to showcase their style sensibilities and make a fashion statement. Who can forget Jennifer Lopez’s history-making Versace dress, which prompted the creation of Google’s image search? Or BTS’ Louis Vuitton-powered wardrobe at the award’s 64th edition?
This year, presenters, nominees and industry insiders stepped out in the Crypto Arena in Los Angeles, dressed to the nines. Gorgeous dresses and spectacular glam set the tone for an awards night, where the likes of Olivia Rodrigo, Dua Lipa and Victoria Monet made headlines with their stylish looks.

Pinterest predicted metallics would be in for 2024 and if we go by British star Dua Lipa, the picture-sharing platform was not mistaken. The “Dance The Night” singer sported a floor-length dress with a plunging neckline and long sleeves. The custom-made piece, courtesy of Courrèges, featured chainmail detailing and cutouts on the sides. To further make a case for metallics, the pop star accessorized with a silver necklace from Tiffany & Co.’s 2023 collection. Beauty-wise, Dua, who was nominated in two categories (Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media), kept things simple. The singer let her trendy red hair fall down her shoulders in stylish waves and sported subtle nude-toned makeup.
Dua switched things up to go on stage at the main award ceremony. The superstar opted for an edgy black leather bodysuit to perform a medley of “Dance The Night,” “Houdini” and her unreleased single “Training Season.”
Tapping into the 2024 red hair renaissance, singer-songwriter Billie Eilish stepped out in a striking two-tone hairstyle. The singer paired the daring look with a uniform-infused outfit featuring black trousers, a white button-up by Willy Chavarria, and the must-have accessory of the season: a skinny tie. La piėce de résistance of her look, however, was a Barbie varsity jacket that nodded at her win in the Song Written for Visual Media category, which she had previously reaped at the Grammys Premiere Ceremony. Eilish’s song for the Barbie movie, “What Was I Made For?,” was also nominated in other four categories, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Music Video.
Versace transformed R&B singer Victoria Monét into a bronze sculpture with a corseted gown. The recording artist elevated the body-hugging piece with a BVLGARI Serpenti necklace and a sleek hairdo. The Atlanta native and her two-year-old daughter, Hazel, matched metallic dresses of the same color for the red carpet. The mother-daughter pair were accompanied by Monét’s boyfriend John Gaines, who kept up with the earth-toned theme in an olive green suit. Victoria was nominated for seven awards this Grammy season, including Record of the Year (“On My Mama”), Best New Artist, Best R&B Performance (“How Does It Make You Feel”), Best Traditional R&B Performance (“Hollywood”), and Best R&B Album (JAGUAR II). The singer ultimately took home three gramophone trophies, including the award for Best New Artist.
The classic evening gown never goes out of style on a night like the Grammys. However, actress-turned-singer Coco Jones took it to the next level by effortlessly embodying goddess glamour. The five-time Grammy award nominee stepped out in a breathtaking light mint gown designed by Celia Kritharioti and embellished with sequins from head to toe. “I’m honoring my younger self with glitter today,” she gushed in an interview with Associated Press.
Coco styled her red carpet look with a classy hair updo that allowed her to show off the dress’ plunging neckline and opted for diamond accessories to match her sequined dress. The first-time Grammy award winner was up for five different categories thanks to her debut EP, What I Didn’t Tell You.
Tyla made us lose our breath with a custom Versace ensemble curated by London-based stylist Lee Trigg. The 22-year-old South African singer accepted her first Grammy Award for Best African Music Performance (“Water”) with style and zeal. Her look featured a captivating sage green cut-out gown with ruching and iridescent chainmail. In addition to her new golden trophy, Tyla accessorized her red carpet look with silver spiral hoop earrings, tooth gems, blinged-out rings and her trademark navel piercing.
A day prior, Tyla attended the Pre-Grammy Gala in an Area look styled by self-proclaimed “fashion fairy” Katie Qian, whose celebrity clientele includes Tinashe, Conan Gray, and NIKI.
Pop princess Olivia Rodrigo returned to the Grammys with six nominations including Album Of The Year (Guts) and Record Of The Year (“Vampire”). The singer-songwriter was spotted in Versace vintage — an elegant off-white, floor-length dress entirely speckled with diamonds. Previously worn by supermodel Linda Evangelista on the Spring Summer 1995 Ready-To-Wear runway, the dress was chosen exclusively from the Versace archives. The singer opted for naturally styled waves to compliment the minimalistic evening gown. In the beauty department, Rodrigo contrasted the clean makeup look with a bold Vampy lip, adding a touch of color to the entirely neutral ensemble.
American singer Miley Cyrus took home the award for Best Pop Solo Performance — the first Grammy of her career — in a black halter jumpsuit. The Tom Ford number was paired with a voluminous hairstyle that channeled the style of eras past. Miley made waves at the event since her arrival at the Crypto Arena in a custom Maison Margiela net dress. After accepting her first award of the night (from Mariah Carey nonetheless!), the singer performed her hit single, “Flowers,” in a bugle-beaded vintage dress by Bob Mackie. After several outfit changes, Miley returned to the stage to receive the award for Record of the Year, clad in a sequined Sabato de Sarno Gucci dress.
Colombian sensation Karol G became the first woman to win the award for Best Música Urbana at the Grammys. “La Bichota,” as she is dubbed, stepped onstage to receive her gramophone, dressed in a sage green off-the-shoulder dress by Marmar Halim. Karol opted to sport pin-straight hair and went big on accessories with a silver choker and statement bracelet and earrings. In her speech, the “Mañana Será Bonito” singer gave a shout-out to her fans. “My album has given me the best memories of my life, my whole life. [To] my fans that came and enjoyed my album, that gave [me] motivation and inspiration and healed with me, thank you so much,” she said.
Grab your nearest Swiftie because Taylor Swift’s appearance was one to write home about. After becoming the first and only woman solo artist to win the Grammy for Album Of The Year thrice (with solo recordings), Taylor’s annual appearances have become highly anticipated. This year was no different. The artist left fans speechless when she arrived in a Schiaparelli gown with black and white accessories. Hugging her figure, the off-white dress featured Schiaparelli’s superb draping, a high slit and plenty of Easter eggs for die-hard fans to decode. Alongside the Schiaparelli gown, a Lorraine Schwartz timepiece took new life just above Swift’s clavicles. The watch (set to midnight in a reference to her album) was fastened around the artist’s neck as a quirky choker. Described as “Reputation-coded,” the outfit was topped off with black opera gloves and a pair of open-toe heels.
Bride-to-be or princess on the runway? Singer and style icon Madison Beer never falls short when it comes to fashion. Beer confidently rocked a custom-made Marmar Halim ballgown with a strapless sweetheart neckline. The corseted bodice combined with a voluminous skirt with pockets made one of the most elegant looks of the night. The added bow on the center of the chest tied the piece together, adding a touch of the online viral coquette trend. The singer let her hair fall freely over her shoulders and paired the look with white, gold, and diamond stud earrings from Jewels Aficionado.
Fit for the evening, Janelle Monáe was dressed to the nines in custom Armani Privé. The 38-year-old was nominated in two categories (Album of the Year and Best Progressive R&B Album) with her fourth studio album, The Age of Pleasure. Classic yet futuristic, Janelle’s sequin-covered gown featured a pointed bustier top and floral embellishment. Finger waves and 1980s-inspired smokey liner reinforced the edgy but feminine look.
Decked out in early aughts drip, Ice Spice channeled pop divas of decades past with her denim-on-denim get-up. Arriving at the venue with four category nominations, the rapper arrived like “she know she a ten” — and not just for her music. Contrasting with the iconic light denim combinations of the past, Ice Spice opted for a dark denim set lined with Cappuccino-colored faux fur for that 2000s throwback. Nodding to rap culture, Ice Spice’s faux fur neckline framed a maximalist cross chain. The rapper sported her signature copper curls and glossed lips to elevate the look and stay true to her aesthetic.
Lana Del Rey
Always one to favor the unconventional, Lana Del Rey took on the “Wednesday-core” aesthetic for her Grammy appearance. The Baroque pop artist was nominated in five different categories including Album of the Year. Serving “Old Money” energy, Del Rey sported blunt bangs, a midnight black ensemble and prim styling. Large satin bows embellished her hair, wrists and shoes for a coquette touch. In true Lana Del Ray fashion, her makeup was oh-so-mod — 1960s-inspired eyeshadow and concealer lips topped off her retro glam.
