Photos: What the stars wore on the Grammys red carpet

Mickey Guyton stunned in Valentino.Jordan Strauss

Before stars go to grabbed (or presented) the gilded gramophones at the 63rd Annual Grammys Awards, they walked — or virtually strolled — the red carpet. Thankfully, the pandemic hasn’t stopped musicians, producers, and hosts from flaunting their most glamorous designer picks. Some are stuntin’ from home. Others got the privilege of walking the physical strip in real life.

Maybe the rest of us can live vicariously through the celebs who get to dress up, leave their homes, and mingle with strangers?

Here are a few notable looks. (Some of these shots are from March 9, when the show’s pre-taped portions were filmed.)

Marren Morris wore a silky purple dress with silver gems and a plunging neckline. It’s custom Dolce & Gabbana.

Trevor Noah.Jordan Strauss

You can count on host Trevor Noah to keep it classic. A tux it is.

Mickey GuytonJordan Strauss

Bring on the florals. Best Country Solo Performance nominee Mickey Guyton stunned in a Valentino dress and Neil Lane jewelry.

DaBabyJordan Strauss

Patterns! Patterns! Patterns! DaBaby wore a neutral turtleneck under a black coat decorated with embroidered flowers. His sleek, rectangular sunglasses and two-toned hat completed the ‘fit.

Brandi CarlileJordan Strauss

Brandi Carlile showed up in a metallic suit accompanied by just one simple accessory: a simple chain. Her Sunday night performance is dedicated to the late singer-songwriter John Prine.

Count on H.E.R. to keep it comfy and chic. The singer was not kidding around in her purple, loose-fitting attire from Dundas.

Brittany Howard brought it in a black draped gown, complete with dark sunglasses that added a dose of mystery.

Debi NovaJordan Strauss

Never say no to a train. Debi Nova wore a Georges Chakra pink mini dress that seems to go on forever.

MapyJordan Strauss

Mapy went the skin-tight route. Her red and white mini dress was paired with white leather boots and pendant earrings.


Phoebe BridgersJordan Strauss

Phoebe Bridgers’ outfit tickles our funny bone. The singer matched the cover of her second album, “Punisher,” by bringing us another skeleton outfit. It’s from Thom Browne.

Doja CatJordan Strauss

Doja Cat is, of course, a feathered goddess. Considering she’s nominated for Best Record of the Year, Best New Artist, and Best Pop Solo performance, it makes sense she came dressed to impress in Roberto Cavalli.

Noah CyrusJordan Strauss

The bigger, the better. Noah Cyrus strutted on the red carpet in a white dress surrounded by a statement collar that vaguely resemble some crumbled hotel bed sheets.

Bad BunnyJordan Strauss

You can almost never miss in all black, and that’s what Bad Bunny brought. (He also brought...a sunflower?)

Jhay CortezJordan Strauss

Jhay Cortez wore an unconventional suit, a thick gold chain, and black sneakers.

Julia MichaelsJordan Strauss

Julia Michaels is taking our breath away. Classic red lip. Plain black dress accentuated with floral-esque decorations across the bottom. And some strappy sandals.

LizzoJordan Strauss

Lizzo came out in an unusual (yet still flattering) shade of green. The dress’ sweetheart necklace was highlighted by a chunky, silver necklace that matched the jewels on her ears and wrists.

FINNEAS complimented his ginger hair with a pink suit and striped shirt. The black lapels juxtaposed the pastels in the rest of the ensemble.

If you’re sisters, you might as well match. And that’s exactly what HAIM did, in Prada.

Billie EilishJordan Strauss

Billie Eilish always goes bold, and this matching set — complete with a hat — is no exception.

Jhene AikoJordan Strauss

Jhene Aiko essentially showed up in a blanket by Giambattista Valli, but at least it was cute. Here’s her in a pink, fluffy, and wonderful outfit that automatically lifted everyone’s mood.


Megan Thee StallionJordan Strauss

Megan Thee Stallion arrived — and accepted an award — in a bright orange dress that was absolutely impossible to miss. It was all dressed up with big, silver jewelry that elevated the look. The best part? The matching orange mask.

Jimmy JamJordan Strauss

Jimmy Jam with another classic outfit.

ChikaJordan Strauss

Chika took the pastel theme to another level (it seems Finneas has been beat). Even the shoes matched the light pink and blue vibe.

Miranda Lambert really fit the theme. Her glowing silver dress was covered in music notes.

Harry StylesJordan Strauss

Yellow plaid jacket. Purple boa. Flaired pants. In Gucci, Harry Styles can do no wrong. (Still, the V-neck is a tad questionable.)

Dua LipaJordan Strauss

Dua Lipa, we love the slit. Her almost-sheer, pink number from Atelier Versace and her Bvlgari jewelry turned heads Sunday night.

Ingrid AndressJordan Strauss

For Ingrid Andress, the necklaces are the shirt. Better yet, they match the shoes.

Taylor SwiftJordan Strauss

Everyone keeps outdoing themselves in the flowers. Album of the Year nominee Taylor Swift wore floral head-to-toe. It all came together with pink heels that tied at the ankle.

Jack AntonoffJordan Strauss

Jack Antonoff had incredible hipster energy. In a baggy blazer, dark khaki pants, and circular glasses, he came to accept his accolades as “producer of the century,” as some people on Twitter put it.

Chika (left) and Lido (right)Jordan Strauss

Is Lido (right)...okay? This is a white shirt and sneakers — not exactly a Grammy look.


Lil BabyJordan Strauss
