The 2023 Grammys, music’s biggest night, shared its annual celebration yesterday evening (Feb. 5), complete with a tribute for Hip Hop’s 50th anniversary, and the looks did not disappoint. As one of the most star-studded Grammy ceremonies in the last few years, the red carpet consisted of suits and ties, sculptural gowns and everything in between. The outcome was a memorable night for all involved.
Here’s my best dressed Grammys attendees in no particular order.
1. Cardi B
Best Rap Album presenter Cardi B secured top billing on my list with her hooded, sculptural electric blue gown by Gaurav Gupta.
2. Steve Lacy
First time Grammy winner Steve Lacy hit the red carpet in a custom Saint Laurent suit, diamond brooch, clutch and dark shades. Sleek tailoring for the win!
3. Doja Cat
Multi-nominee Doja Cat is no stranger to any best dressed list, and last night she continued her winning streak in a custom black vinyl Atelier Versace gown.
4. Kendrick Lamar
King Kendrick Lamar eschewed the suit and tie dress code like only a hip hop titan could as he took the stage to collect his Best Rap Album trophy. He wore a full Martine Rose fit, which included a windbreaker, shirt, tie, pants and an LA Dodgers fitted adorned with Tiffany & Co. jewels.
Lizzo in an orange Dolce & Gabanna multitiered look.
6. Pharrell Williams
Style icon and Grammy vet Pharrell Williams in an Ernest W. Baker red leather tracksuit and brown fur. He completed the look with his beloved Tiffany & Co. sunglasses and a Human Made leather cap.
