Just like that, the 2016 Grammys have come and gone. While the viewing experience may be over, we'll always have the performance video and, thankfully, red carpet photos to help us relive the good times. While we didn't get Rihanna on the red carpet — ?!!!!!!! — we did get Demi Lovato with long hair, Selena Gomez in sequins, and so much more.
Here are our faves from the night!
Lady Gaga in Marc Jacobs
It was a big night for Lady Gaga on the music side of things, but it wouldn't be a red carpet without a show stopping look. Not only did Mother Monster honor David Bowie in her performance, but she also channeled him on the carpet with a space-inspired coat, enormous platforms, and of course, bright red hair.
Demi Lovato in Norisol Ferrari
Let's be real—if you wear a body chain as a shirt, you're going to be among the best dressed on a carpet. Of course, the rest of Demi Lovato's look — blazer, high-slit skirt, and long hair — doesn't hurt either.
Ellie Goulding in Stella McCartney
Has any hair on a red carpet ever been this perfectly tousled? Ellie Goulding dressed up her ~undone~ 'do with a pale Stella McCartney number, complete with an embellished back. The overall effect is equally feminine and badass and just, y'know, perfect.
Carrie Underwood in Nicolas Jebran
High slits made multiple appearances on the carpet, but Carrie Underwood's slit dared to go higher than most. She accessorized with minimal jewelry and a bob, resulting in one of the sleekest looks of the night.
Bella Hadid in Alexandre Vauthier
Bella Hadid may have shown up to the Grammys to support her nominated boyfriend, The Weeknd, but let's be real — she kind of stole the show the moment she touched down on the carpet. The slicked-back hair, smoky eye, and glitzy cut-out dress with the deep V -- that's the stuff red carpet dreams are made of.
Taylor Swift in Atelier Versace
Taylor Swift arrived on the carpet early and with good reason — she had a new haircut and, as always, a toned midsection to show off. Between her skirt, crop top, and bold lip, Taylor managed to incorporate numerous bright shades into her look, a feat that is way harder than she makes it look.
Selena Gomez in Calvin Klein
Selena Gomez described her look as something she would wear on a date, which, uhhh, congrats to anyone she's ever gone or will go on a date with. Sparkles?! Cutouts?! This Calvin Klein dress has it all and, let's be real, so does Selena.
Zendaya in Dsquared2
Like Lady Gaga, Zendaya found red carpet inspiration in David Bowie's iconic style. Unlike Gaga, she took a far subtler approach, opting for just a tuxedo and mullet. Just when you think you can't love Zendaya any more, she goes and makes a mullet look cool. Bowing.
Ariana Grande in Romona Keveza
Ariana Grande went classic glam in a bright red Romona Keveza gown. While she looked stunning, her mobility was fairly limited — you know what, though? NO ONE CARES. When you look this good, people able to walk barely matters. That's what bodyguards are for, amirite?
