                          8 Best Dressed at the Grammys

The Best

Taylor Swift

Screen shot 2013-12-19 at 1.54.19 PM

On a night with a surprising lack of glamorous dresses, Taylor Swift brought her A game. The starlet stunned in a silver Gucci column gown that was perfectly fitted to her slim frame. The gown was covered in so many crystals that T-Swift joked about it being a suit of armor.

Ciara

  56th GRAMMY Awards - Red CarpetCiara made pregnancy look insanely glamorous in her custom Emilio Pucci gown. She collaborated with the designer on the sequined gold dress, which hugged her curves in all the right ways

 

US-MUSIC-GRAMMY AWARDS-ARRIVALSMiranda Lambert has received a lot of negative press about her fluctuating weight in the past. We’re betting that her critics are biting their tongues after seeing the star in a red hot gown from Pamella Roland. The always gorgeous star stole the show.

Alicia Keys

The plunging neckline of this dress was a bit of a fashion risk—but it’s one that paid off. Alicia Keys looked stunning in this custom Armani Prive with a Swarovski crystal-studded belt.

The Grammys got political

Katy Perry wore her political heart on her sleeve, sporting an armband that read “PERSIST” inspired by Mitch McConnell’s now famous remark about fellow senator Elizabeth Warren. And at the end of her performance, she shouted, “No hate!” while standing in front of a backdrop of the Constitution

"Resist!" A Tribe Called Quest called as they wrapped

Resist!” A Tribe Called Quest called as they wrapped their unapologetically political number ‘We the People’ and raised their fists in protest.

BRUNO MARS and THE TIMEBruno Mars' Prince tribute

Mars stepped into Prince’s similarly sized shoes to pay tribute to the pop icon, preceded by a band that can remember the late legend better than nearly anyone else in music, his former band The Time. Frontman Morris Day led The Time through faithful, gloriously funky renditions of Jungle Love and The Bird (featured in the Purple Rain film) before Mars took the stage, tasked with covering Prince’s classic Let’s Go Crazy, nailing his costume with a sequined purple jacket and flouncy shirt. But looking the part isn’t the same as sounding it, and Mars’ energetic vocals were nearly swallowed by the waves of reverb that once buoyed Prince’s voice. While he mimicked Prince’s guitar skills well enough, Mars’ stiff performance neglected the fact that Prince was also one of pop music’s best dancers.

 

 

 

 

Grammys 2017 Jaw-DroppersBlue Ivy Carter Holds Court: Not only was the 5-year-old channeling Prince in a pink tux and ruffly cravat (the late artist having teamed up with the child’s mom for one of the all-time great Grammy performances back in 2004, but she very much had the run of the place, including when she joined James Corden’s obligatory “Carpool Karaoke” bit.

 

Pantsless for a ReasonGrammys 2017 Jaw-DroppersBest Pop Duo/Group Performance winner 21 Pilots gave an unexpectedly touching speech after ditching their pants at their seats and heading to the stage in their boxer-briefs. “This story starts in Columbus, Ohio,” Tyler Joseph said, figuring the audience was a little…curious. “It was a few years ago, before [Josh Dun] and I were able to make money playing music. i called him up and said, ‘Hey, Josh, you want to come over to my rental house and watch the Grammys?’ And he said, ‘Yeah.’ He was hanging there…As we were watching we noticed that every single one of us was in our underwear. And seriously, Josh turned to me—and we were no one at that time–and he turned to me and said, ‘If we ever go to the Grammys, if we ever win a Grammy, we should receive it just like this.'” Pause for massive applause.

She was also a winner for Best Music Video, for “Formation.”Grammys 2017 Jaw-Droppers
