It’s a look she’s made her own by incorporating her favorite color – neon green – into her red carpet outfits more often than not. While the Grammys took place before COVID reached the U.S., it seems Billie was ahead of the game. She wore a Gucci suit with neon green accents and a black sheer mask along with shades.
Ariana Grande was the star of the show at the 2020 Grammys, that’s for sure. The singer wore a breathtaking grey tulle gown that was custom-made by Giambattista Valli. The dress was so large, in fact, that she decided to stop and sit in the middle of the red carpet. To complete the look, she paired the dress with matching grey gloves that went up over her elbow. Of course, she had her hair up in her signature ponytail.
Another celeb who turned heads at the Grammys is none other than Chrissy Teigen, AKA the queen of Twitter. She attended the 62nd annual Grammy Awards wearing a stunning orange Yanina Couture dress that featured a thigh-high slit, a plunging neckline, and gorgeous structured sleeves. She kept her accessories simple, with dangling earrings and a few rings. Finally, she carried a matching orange clutch to complete the look.
Lizzo has made a name for herself over the past year or so, and she’s become an icon in more ways than one. Her style is impeccable. So, when she arrived at the Grammys wearing this stunning Versace dress, we were floored. The white strapless dress featured hand-embroidered Swarovski crystals, a thigh-high slit, a sweetheart neckline, and took two months to make. To top it off, the singer added a faux-fur stole which was designed by Versace as well.
Kylie Jenner showed up to the Vanity Fair Oscars party wearing a structured Ralph and Russo navy dress. Despite the fact that her appearance at the part confused fans, the star looked incredible in the strapless dress. The sparkling dress had a very structured look to it, flowing down to the floor elegantly. She kept her hair straight and sleek as to not overpower the dress. However, Kylie mentioned on her Instagram that she “couldn’t really sit in it”. She made sure to add that it was totally worth it. After all, beauty is pain, right?
At the Westword premiere, Katja Herber showed up in this optical illusion dress designed by Iris Van Herpen Haute Couture. It’s rather fitting if you ask us, seeing as the show itself is rather maze-like in nature. The transparent dress features many curving lines that are perfectly placed. With matching over-the-top sleeves, the star kept her shoes and accessories simple, wearing black sandals and her hair pulled back.
Here we have a celebrity who took things in another direction for the same Westworld premiere. Angela Sarafyan wore a baby pink dress designed by Redemption. The low-cut gown featured cut-outs on her hips along with a black claspt on the front. Overall, it is very reminiscent of Greece. With a long train trailing behind her, the star kept her hair up and paired the dress with gorgeous dangling earrings to complete the look.
Miley Cyrus is used to making a statement with her clothing no matter where she may be. When she showed up to the MTV Music Awards wearing this eye-popping Mugler look, it wasn’t unexpected. Her strapless transparent dress was bejeweled with small oval mirrors and paired with matching sheer black over-the-elbow gloves. Miley chose simple black sandals but went all-out with her dramatic makeup. Winged liner and red lipstick are paired with beautiful gold hoops to complete this look.
Another star who likes stealing the show with her other-worldly outfits is, of course, Lady Gaga. Showing up on the VMAs red carpet, the singer wore a silver bubble jacket made by Area along with a clear helmet made by Muscarella, and black platform boots made by Pleasers. To complete her astronaut-like look, Gaga wore a necklace made by Edward Avedis. Overall, it looks like the star is trying to replicate the moon-man – and is nailing it.
Doja Cat went all-out for the Billboard Music Awards. The rapper has been showing up to red carpets all year looking incredible, and this time was no different. She wore a barely-there jewel-encrusted gown along with matching lavender sandal heels. Her long straight red hair really made the purple in the dress pop. To complete this racy look, she kept her makeup neutral and smoky while wearing a few rings and nothing else.
Maren Morris decided to go for a glamourous gothic look for the CMA Awards. This Dolce and Gabbana set was worn with a matching black floor-length lacy kimono. As you can imagine, this outfit was a showstopper. In fact, it was auctioned off after the event to raise money to benefit Black Women’s Health Imperative. The star completed this dramatic look with bright red lipstick and neutral makeup along with gold chandelier earrings.
It seems like Ellen Pompeo decided to pay homage to an iconic Barbara Streisand look at the People’s Choice Awards. Ellen’s white mesh looks like an updated version of the outfit Streisand wore to the 1969 Grammys. Ellen’s ensemble was designed by David Koma and features a sheer white button-down blouse along with matching floor-length pants. Paired with white sandals, the star kept her accessories rather simple and wore layered silver chokers and her hair down in waves.
Vanessa Hudgens wore a classic little black dress to the MTV Movie & TV Awards. The strapless mini dress was made by Versace and was paired with a gold choker featuring the brand’s logo. Additionally, she wore a thin black belt around her waist and completed this chic look with black Casadei pumps. Otherwise, the star wore David Yurman jewels and kept her hair straight and sleek to perfect the outfit.
