Instead of holding the ceremony in Los Angeles, as is customary, the 64th annual Grammy Awards were held on Sunday night in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The long-awaited event, hosted by Trevor Noah, included spectacular performances by Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, and H.E.R.
All of us gathered in Sin City hours before the awards show to see some of the biggest names in music walk the red carpet.
Stars at the Grammys typically choose something more daring or in a (much) brighter shade than the traditional haute couture gowns and dazzling diamond high jewellery worn to the Oscars. The male stars shone brighter than their female counterparts this year, and a few couples added some sweetness to the red carpet.
From Dua Lipa’s legendary Versace bondage outfit to Billy Porter’s androgynous Valentino ensemble, here are our picks for the best and worst dressed stars at this year’s 64th Grammy Awards.
Last night was the Grammy Awards, and while some celebs looked amazing, these ones did not. Only some of the stars were prepared for their red carpet duties.

Grammys Red Carpet 2022 Worst Dressed
When it comes to Billie Eilish’s wardrobe, nobody knows what the hell is going on. However, she is once again dressed in an all-black, baggy, oddly-shaped outfit. (We assume it’s a coat that has been modified with a hole for her head.) Awaken us when she dons brighter clothing.
Billie Eilish, who sang “Bad Guy,” wore a Rick Owens outfit so dark it obscured her features. It’s eccentric and consistent with her brand, but it’s hardly her best appearance.
Singer Justin Bieber
Since women’s fashion is more dynamic, we usually reserve best and worst dressed lists for female celebrities. However, the Biebs’ baggy suit and hot pink beanie earned him a spot on this year’s list. Even more disappointing was Hailey’s equally baggy style.
Doja Cat flaunted her beautiful form in an Atelier Versace gown that took hundreds of hours to make, including a custom corset and crystal, hand-embroidered.
Her jewellery from designers like Samer Halimeh and Jacob & Co., as well as her blown glass purse and bedazzled JBL speaker (!), provided the kind of sardonic flair we’ve come to expect from the celebrity.
Can I get some potato chips with that? Pasta? Frosting? Why Michelle Zauner (of the band Japanese Breakfast) would wear this bizarre yellow Valentino couture ensemble is a mystery.
A Tayla Parx
This Bowser getup is more appropriate for a preschooler’s Halloween party than the Grammys.
There’s nothing wrong with standing out from the crowd, but singer-songwriter Tayla Parx looked like she was headed to a costume party rather than the Grammys in an outfit that resembled something out of Super Mario.
Kali Uchis’s dress was unflattering for the occasion due to its dull hue and boxy cut. Of course, it ended up on our list of the worst-dressed things ever.
This dress seems more appropriate for a 1970s-themed party than the red carpet at the Grammy Awards.
We can’t quite figure out the point of this garment, because it’s so cluttered that nothing seems to do the trick.
We applaud your decision to make a bold statement with the colour red, but was the absolutely enormous hat really necessary?
The furry bear gloves were the final insult to an already terrible garment. The ruffled gown and the claws here aren’t as exciting as Yola’s role as Sister Rosetta Tharpe in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis biopic.
This gown looks like underwear and is therefore inappropriate for the Grammys red carpet.
