Lady Gaga’s egg aside, there was a lot of glamour on the Grammy red carpet on Sunday night (February 13). Between the dazzling whites and animal prints, the stars turned up their fashion game for the big show in Los Angeles.
Check out photos of Lady Gaga’s arrival and the rest of the Grammy red carpet.
Florence and the Machine’s Florence Welch hit the carpet early in a white, partially sheer gypsy-esque gown by Givenchy, complete with swan detailing. Paramore leading lady Hayley Williams showed off her fire-engine red hair with a ’60s silhouette that included a black sequined dress with hot-pink trim and black tights by Jeremy Scott.
Nicki Minaj did her own thing in a leopard print Givenchy dress with matching tights, shoes and even a beehive, Marie Antoinette-inspired wig with spots. “I’m also wearing kick-ass attitude,” Minaj told MTV News hosts Snooki and Sway on the carpet. Perhaps stealing from Nicki Minaj’s wardrobe cues, Swizz Beatz also wore all-black with a leopard jacket.
Katy Perry donned an iridescent Armani dress with angel wings, beads along the bust and cut-out detailing. Hubby Russell Brand and Katy’s 90-year-old grandmother, Anne, were also wearing silver outfits designed by Armani. Perry’s good pal Rihanna hit the carpet with her fiery hair looking shorter but still edgy in a white tulle gown with tiered ruffles by Jean Paul Gaultier that left little to the imagination.
It was all-black everything for some of the guys. Drake looked fancy in a black tuxedo with black shirt and black bow tie. Like Drake, Adam Lambert hit the carpet in black, wearing a low-cut black button-down with a black tuxedo that had leather details on the collar.
Justin Bieber looked white-hot in an all-white tuxedo with black bow tie and pocket square; he completed the look with white kicks. His gal pal Selena Gomez looked ultra-glam in a body-hugging J. Mendel lingerie-style silver gown. Gomez’s fellow Disney star Miley Cyrus looked equally glittering (and newly blonde) in a skin-tight silver gown by Roberto Cavalli that she wore with lots of bangles. Kim Kardashian, who walked the carpet with brother Rob, opted for gold instead of silver in a low-cut, golden halter gown with a thigh-high slit by Kaufman Franco.
