The 66th annual Grammy Awards took place earlier this month on Feb. 4 - a highly anticipated night of music and, in my opinion, red carpet looks.

  • Miley Cyrus in Maison Margiela

The singer’s slinky “Barbarella”-esque red carpet look by Maison Margiela has garnered abundant controversy from what seems like all corners of the internet.

Intricately fabricated from gold safety pins and styled with iconic Margiela Tabi heels in yellow velvet, this look is extremely eye-catching and perfectly fitting for the new Grammy Award winner.

Her larger-than-life hairdo has received the most negative attention, but the high level of drama - and hairspray - is rare, and secured this look as one of my favorites of the evening.

  • Boy Genius in Thom Browne

Indie sensation Boygenius, composed of Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, and Lucy Dacus, all sported matching white tailored Thom Browne suits. 

The satin lining and wood-like pattern set them apart from every other ensemble on the carpet. The charming addition of pink carnations pinned to their lapels nodded to the band’s current hiatus with red “Artists for Ceasefire” buttons spotted next to them.

The combination of Thom Browne’s whimsical design and meaningful details made this group another favorite of the night.

  • Ice Spice in Baby Phat

The rapper breathed new life onto the red carpet in a custom denim and fur set by iconic streetwear brand Baby Phat. Gold accessories, including an oversized cross necklace, added to the streetwear look while remaining true to Ice Spice’s signature style.

The trailing skirt featured just the right amount of slit, and styled with a cropped jacket in a matching wash and luxurious fur lining, this was the most glamorous denim on denim has looked since Britney Spears in 2001. 

  • Caroline Polachek in Olivier Theyskens

Singer, songwriter, and producer Caroline Polachek had the most unique look of the evening in an archival Olivier Theyskens gown.

The carefully done embroidery and elegant mock-neck silhouette added a level of craftsmanship not commonly seen on red carpets recently.

A bright red lace cutout and vein-like red embroidery extending from it against the black fabric turned Caroline Polachek into a perfect ’90s goth vision on the Grammy Awards carpet. 

  • Olivia Rodrigo in Atelier Versace

In another archival look, pop superstar Olivia Rodrigo stunned in a Versace Spring/Summer 1995 dress.

The white silky grown was embellished with silver and pink crystals to create a gradient look. The strappy sweetheart neckline paired with a red lip gave the “Teenage Dream” singer a mature and classic old Hollywood appearance - appropriate for the winner of three Grammy Awards.
