Grammys 2015: Polka dots, Dodger uniforms and a lotta blue

Early word from Grammys red carpet: Men's fashion has been pretty great

The Grammys red carpet action is underway.

If you want to know what Beyonce and Taylor Swift are wearing, you’ll have to wait a while.

But if you want to see how the rest of the music industry is bringing it, check out the terrific new live stream, which features red carpet coverage hosted by MTV's Quddus and Louise Roe of "Access Hollywood."

So far, the men’s fashion on display has been pretty great. I’ve heard music producer Hit Boy talk about his House of Hit collection of velvet smoking slippers. Meanwhile, singer Aloe Blacc called out Soren Sand and the Copenhagen-based fashion collection Sand for his sharp blue suit.

Blue is a men’s trend-in-the-making at the Grammys, as it has been elsewhere on the red carpet this awards show season. Rapper and singer-songwriter Verse Simmonds is wearing an electric blue Versace suit that could light up a room.

And then, there are the ever-amusing, only-at-the-Grammys fashion statements, too — Brann Dailor of the metal band Mastodon is rocking a rainbow polka dot suit (a one-man kids’ birthday party, my colleague Adam Tschorn remarked) and his bandmate Brent Hinds is in a Dodgers baseball uniform. Because, why not?

Vive the Grammys.
