Trendspotting at the Grammy Awards 2018

For the first time in 15 years, the Grammy Awards left the West Coast behind – staging the 60th annual event in New York City at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.

White roses were handed out to attendees to associate with the #MeToo movement, and black was as always a popular red carpet choice. Of course, there were also some crazy fashion choices that kept the night alive and happening.

Here are some of the most prevalent trends from the night…

 

Statement Suits

 

Androgynous looks are now a huge part of red carpet dressing. They were popular at the AMA’s, Golden Globes and the Grammys followed suit too!

 

Zayn Malik

Janelle Monae

Not your conventional choice of colour, but we just wish this look was styled better!

 

Eve

This four-time Grammy winner added some glam to the red carpet with this bedazzled suit, in a psychedelic-like pattern.

 

Leg Bearing Gowns

Thigh-high slits always rule the red carpet and instantly take any dress to the next level!

 

Beyonce

Ruffles, net, and a beret! Never thought these elements would work well together but of course, Beyonce shows us how it’s done.

 

Rita Ora

This Ralph and Russo velvet gown featured a soaring thigh-high slit, which apparently resulted in a wardrobe mishap on the red carpet too!

 

Lady Gaga

Never one to keep it simple, Lady Gaga’s custom Armani Privé ensemble is actually a lacy bodysuit with a voluminous skirt over it.

 

Classic Whites

 

While the Golden Globes chose black to make a statement against sexual misconduct, the Grammys chose white roses to symbolize the movement. Hence white remained a popular choice for red carpet looks too.

 

Cardi B

We’re never fans of princessy fairy-like dresses, and this is just another reason why…

 

Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee opted for metallic purple boots to make a statement with her crisp white dress. We’re not sure what we think of this one…

 

Kesha, Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Rexha, Andra Day, and Julia Michaels

Kesha performed a powerful rendition of her hit song ‘Praying’ alongside singers Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Rexha, Andra Day, and Julia Michaels, all dressed in white, as a tribute to the #MeToo movement.
