Grammys 2020 fashion hits and misses from the red carpet


We’re deep into the latest awards season, and here comes something a little different: the outrageous, over-the-top and designer fashion from the always-entertaining celebrities and musicians who attend the Grammy Awards, held this year at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Alicia Keys returned as host for the second year, and we’re more than excited about what the nominees, winners and presenters of the 62nd Grammys brought to the evening in terms of style. Major red-carpet standouts included Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande, but they were by no means the only ones.

Follow along as we bring you our latest round of sartorial hits and misses as well as those picks from our new-kid-on-the-block category, On the Fence.

Hit: Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande
Hit: Ariana Grande has a fairy-tale moment in her voluminous Giambattista Valli dove-gray gown with enough tulle for days. She’s a major red-carpet standout for all the right reasons.

Old Hollywood glamour, fantastical fringe and a bellhop in pink help deliver much-needed escapism on music’s biggest night.

On the Fence:

On the fence: “Pose” star Billy Porter usually stands out on the red carpet for all the best reasons. For the Grammys, he arrived in a blue, crystal-fringe flared jumpsuit with matching cropped jacket from Baja East by Scott Studenberg and a mechanically retracting fringe bucket hat made in collaboration with Sarah Sokol. It was a decidedly matador look, which left us wondering exactly what the fashion category was.
