Grammys 2015: It's a bumper crop of varied bow ties on the red carpet

The winner on the Grammy Awards red carpet? The bow tie

There’s already a winner at the 57th Grammy Awards – the bow tie – which is turning up in all kinds of novel incarnations tonight.

Nominee Sam Smith paired a white one with a white tuxedo shirt and dark jacket. Hip hop artist Hit-Boy went with a white jacket and shirt -- but with a print bow tie and pocket square combination  -- and the Martins’ Jonathan Martin hit the red carpet in a natty–looking number that appeared to be polka-dotted but, in reality, was handmade out of pheasant feathers by a Charleston, S.C., company called Brackish.

We don’t know what’s behind the proliferation (maybe it’s an easier neck knot for musicians to wear while they perform) but we’re sure enjoying the bumper crop of bows that are coming down the red carpet ranging from butterfly big to gum-stick skinny.
