The Grammys Red Carpet Fashion Was As Wild As Expected

If there's anything we've learned from past Grammys red carpets, it's to brace ourselves for anything and everything. There's typically a lot of sparkle. There's oftentimes some controversy. And, if Rihanna is attending (which, she reportedly is tonight), there's going to be some capital-F Fashion. Then you add Beyoncé and her unborn twins to the equation, and you know the 2017 broadcast was poised to be one for the books way before the carpet was even rolled out.

Though the Grammy's don't typically have moments as wild as Lady Gaga's meat dress or that Amber Rose jumpsuit, they do allow our favorite artists to pull out some pretty epic dresses (perhaps some of the dream gowns we spotted at Couture Fashion Week?). Because really, what are the Grammy's without a cupcake-esque Giambattista Valli moment? See our favorite looks ahead; we'll be updating our slideshow as more celebrities arrive, so stay tuned.

It's yet to be proven whether Solange Knowles can step on a red carpet without completely killing it. Let her golden Grammys confection just the latest example (by Gucci and Lady Grey Jewelry) — if you need us, we'll be over here, knocked out from its perfection.

This is Laverne Cox's first time at the Grammys, and she came to slay in a custom one-shouldered leather dress by Bryan Hearns with slits down the leg. Oh, and she clarified that there's no mesh under the silver fastenings keeping the midi number together: It's all her.

As soon as she decided she wanted to wear Vivienne Westwood to the Grammys, Charlie XCX told Giuliana Rancic she landed on the very red gown we're seeing tonight. Plus, she's repping the designer's punk roots with bejeweled safety pin earrings.

Adele may be known for wearing black almost exclusively to award shows, but she's switching things up on us — and we're pretty psyched, especially since it involves this custom Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci long-sleeved, mixed-texture gown.

You can't mess around too much with something as tried-and-true as the LBD. Diana Gordon, however, played around with the silhouette with a curved neckline and tied-up sleeves, and the result had us rethinking our plain-old black dress big time.

Halsey described her silky blue Christian Wijnants suit and Ippolita jewels as "a little TLC, a little Aaliyah" — we couldn't have found a better descriptor (or a better way to channel legends of both music and fashion).

There's a "What's black and white and red all over?" joke here, but we like Kat Graham's one-shoulder color-blocked dress too much to indulge in it.

Not only did she figure out how to rid her fingers of Fun Dip stains, but Chrissy Teigen even managed to flip the script on the naked dress at the Grammys in Roberto Cavalli (and shine in some Coomi jewels).

This Tom Ford gown is dividing the fashion Twitterverse, but we've got to give Katy Perry props for going bold for the red carpet, in a way only she can. (Hey, not many can work long-sleeved sequins and a feathered skirt simultaneously.)
