Rihanna In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2018 Grammy Awards

Rihanna skipped the red carpet at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) at Madison Square Garden in New York City. But, that doesn’t mean she wasn’t dressed in striking form.

There would be no missing her as she took the stage to accept the Best Rap/Sung Performance award with Kendrick Lamar (in Saint Laurent).

Her Alexandre Vauthier statement was a remake of the chocolate patent-leather trench coat and boots that graced the Fall 2016 Couture runway.

Worn off-the-shoulder, it balanced sophistication and edge, with no gimmicky, try-hard appeal. Leave it to her to make a trench just as glam and statement-making as any gown.

I loved what appeared to be the richer, aubergine inspiration behind the colour palette of the shiny monochromatic look that also included the matching boots and Causse Gantier gloves.

Miley Cyrus In Jean-Paul Gaultier Couture – 2018 Grammy Awards

I’m sure many were curious to see what Miley Cyrus was going to wear to the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City.

She went simple, sleek and chic in a black Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall 2007 Couture jumpsuit.

This is a far cry from her ‘Bangerz’ days with the sophisticated ensemble giving a nod to military with the braiding and medal shoulder details.

Many would have overcompensated with the styling, but she didn’t. Her relaxed soft waves and natural makeup were carefree yet elegant with the sparkly heels keeping the look from being too serious for the occasion.

The way she carried the single long-stemmed white rose to show her support for the #TimesUp movement was a beautiful statement.

Julia Michaels In Paolo Sebastian Couture – 2018 Grammy Awards

Julia Michaels had her princess moment at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City, where she joined Pink and Hailee Steinfeld.

The Best New Artist nominee can flit between sportswear and unabashed romantic dresses, and this Paolo Sebastian Spring 2017 Couture gown definitely falls into the latter category.

With tufts of lilac tulle and butterfly embellishment, it could have been saccharine but the plunging neckline and open sides balanced the sweetness.

Her sharply cut bob and Chopard jewels added further edge.

Not to be missed was her flower hand tattoo that had been painted white to show solidarity with the #TimesUp movement.

Katie Holmes In Zac Posen – 2018 Grammy Awards

Katie Holmes is one of the presenters at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City.

Normally, we can expect the actress to play it safe. Here, though, I’d say she offered a slightly more experimental direction—by her standards, at least.

Although she paired up with her favoured designer, Zac Posen, with a look from his Fall 2017 collection, there was a progressive spirit to the sheen and shortened silhouette of this ladylike, little black frock styled with ’40s-inspired T-strap shoes.

Her beauty look was also more dramatic with retro, finger waves sculpting her short hair for this vintage-meets-mod look.

What do you make of it?

Pink In Armani Privé – 2018 Grammy Awards

Pink brought a vibrant infusion of bold hues to the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City, which she attended with husband Carey Hart and their daughter, Willow Sage.

Channeling inspiration from a few seasons ago, she donned a frothy extravaganza from the Armani Privé Fall 2015 collection.

Feathered gowns are nothing new, but I like her colourful approach.

I also appreciate that her styling was kept to a sleek minimum with this tactile dress, save for a few AS29 and Borgioni jewels and a white #TimesUp rose.

Chrissy Teigen In Yanina Couture – 2018 Grammy Awards

Chrissy Teigen showed off her growing bump at the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 28) in New York City, where she joined Sza and Cardi B.

This YANINA Couture dress would have been a show-stopper no matter what thanks to its glistening material, but its effect was more impactful as this is not a typical maternity silhouette.

Granted it has a waistband, but it also has the draping along the hips and the front slit which all work in harmony to frame her pregnant figure.

Some might wish for a bit of relief from the sequins, but the cascade of them on the chest completes the piece, adding a shooting star quality.

The shorter hair and Art Deco-inspired Lorraine Schwartz earrings brought a 1920’s sentiment.
