The Best Dressed Women of The Grammy’s 2018

We are fully into awards season now with a ceremony of some sort happening every weekend (this weekend we get a little break with the Super Bowl) but The Grammy’s which took place this past Sunday are always on a different level. After all, this is a night celebrating the best musical artists from every genre and from so many different decades. You have Little Big Town sitting right next to Bruno Mars and Cardi B so in other words the fashion is going to be all over the place and off the hook.

To start though we should mention that like with many of the awards shows in 2018 women are wearing certain colours to show their support for the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Instead of wearing black like attendees of the Golden Globes did women at The Grammy’s wore white roses. A different group actually organized this called Voices in Entertainment (mainly made up of music executives.) In a letter to the media they shared on Sunday that they were fighting for “equal representation in the workplace, for leadership that reflects the diversity of our society, workplaces free of sexual harassment and a heightened awareness of accountability that our sisters started on January 1st and continued through the Golden Globes and onward.” Signers of the letter included Lisa Loeb, Kelly Clarkson and Grammy host James Corden.

In addition to the white roses, the fashion of the night seemed a bit more subdued and ladylike then in past years, perhaps a nod to the seriousness of the times. But these women still looked incredible.

Hailee Steinfeld in a white strapless Alexandre Vauthier gown and purple over-the-knee boots

She is no longer a young girl anymore, but now a fully fledged fashionista who is succeeding as both an actress and singer. She looked very classy and yet quite rock n’ roll in this ensemble.

Lady Gaga in a black lace Armani Prive gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a Time’s Up white rose

Also following a more elegant dress code, Lady Gaga looked stunning.

Katie Holmes in a shimmering Zac Posen dress

Katie Holmes looked all kinds of fierce with her short hair slicked back in her delicate Zac Posen gown. Perhaps she was looking extra good as she attended parties all weekend with her new beau Jamie Foxx.

Heidi Klum in a sheer black Ashi Studio gown, Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a Time’s Up rose

Just because you are showing a little skin doesn’t mean you still can’t look super classy as Heidi Klum did in this gorgeous dress.

Camilla Cabello in a red rouched Vivienne Westwood gown, Judith Leiber purse, Bulgari jewels and a Time’s Up rose

Grammy nominee and lady of the moment Cabello looked stunning in this Vivian Leigh-esque red dress.

Anna Kendrick in a grey Balmain suit with black lace bustier, Casadei pumps, Ara Vartanian rings and a Time’s Up rose

The Oscar nominee and Pitch Perfect star pulled a Diane Keaton and opted for a suit for the night. But with its peekaboo bustier it added just the right amount of sexy.

SZA in a white Atelier Versace gown, Chopard jewels and Time’s Up rose

The singer looked like a woodland fairy in this magical gown as she walked down the red carpet.

Though Riri didn’t walk the red carpet she definitely made an entrance when she performed “Wild Thoughts” and did a bit of a flamenco dance.

Beyonce in a Nicolas Jebran black gown with a hat,  Lorraine Schwartz jewels, cat-eye shades from Alain Mikliand and a Time’s Up rose

And it just isn’t the Grammy’s without Beyonce. Though she didn’t walk the red carpet either (because she just doesn’t have to) she still had everyone’s eyes on her as well as her gorgeous husband, Jay-Z, and daughter Blue Ivy.

The look was inspired by the Black Panthers movement. “I love the dramatic slits and touches of sheer [fabric],” Jebran told Vogue. “My favorite element [was] the bold, broad shoulders because they symbolize power.”
