Grammys 2018: Ranking The Best To Worst Dressed Stars

On Jan. 28, 2018, the stars gathered in New York City for the 60th annual Grammy Awards, and they brought their fashion A-game. But not all celebs rocked the red carpet. Keep reading to find out which VIPS wowed with their wardrobe and which let fans down with some less-than-stellar styles.

Lady in red

Camila Cabello made jaws drop at music's biggest awards show of the year in a strapless scarlet number. The human equivalent of the red dancer emoji, the "Havana" singer donned a custom Vivienne Westwood gown with a plunging neckline (via the Daily Mail). And the former Fifth Harmony member knew just how to play up the body-hugging dress — with a simple loose updo, minimal silver jewelry, and a disco-like purse.

Hollywood headturner

Rita Ora stunned at the Grammys in a one-shouldered black velvet gown featuring a high slit, not unlike Angelina Jolie's iconic Oscars look in 2012. The "Anywhere" hitmaker paired the leggy look, designed by Ralph & Russo, with sparkly Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and Christian Louboutin heels (via Just Jared). Ora's long blonde hair and dark bold lip further added to the old Hollywood feel of her ensemble.  

Like many of her fellow awards show attendees, Ora also wore a white rose in support of the Time's Up movement, which was chosen because the flower historically "stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance," as explained by Voices in Entertainment (via E! News).

Glamour and politics? Not many artists can pull that off, but Ora did so effortlessly.

Disco darling

Chrissy Teigen made maternity style look good. The former model sparkled alongside husband John Legend at the 2018 Grammys, wearing a sleek metallic gown. While not many people could pull off such a flashy look, Teigen appeared completely in her element, dazzling her fellow A-listers. She even put her growing baby bump on full display with a shimmery belt. Pairing her Yanina Couture gown with equally shiny accessories, Teigen kept the rest of her look simple with an elegantly styled lob and neutral makeup (via The Huffington Post).

Pop of purple

These boots are made for walking ... the red carpet, that is. Hailee Steinfeld dared to pair her Grammys gown with purple knee-high boots, adding an unexpected punch of color to her awards show ensemble. While her footwear kept her look trendy, her Alexander Vauthie column dress was timeless, featuring a high slit and a strapless top that showed off the young starlet's shape (via The Hollywood Reporter).

What was perhaps most impressive about the Pitch Perfect 3 actress' overall style was how she managed to stay age appropriate, adopting mature fashions while preserving her own youthful spin.

Starry-eyed songstress

Lana Del Rey looked heavenly at the Grammy Awards, wearing a silver halo of stars as a statement headpiece. She completed her celestial look with a cream-colored Gucci gown that featured billowy sleeves and starry embellishments on its shoulders and skirt (via Just Jared). The whole ensemble gave off a very 1970s prom queen vibe, especially with her white rose wrist corsage. And while some celeb styles wouldn't mesh with such an old school vibe, it worked in the best pop vocal album nominee's favor.

Lacy lady

Donning Armani Privé, Lady Gaga dressed to impress with her dramatic black gown (via People). While the "Joanne" singer looked gorgeous in the long-sleeved lace top, the massive skirt left something to be desired. Its high slit, which exposed Gaga's laced leg, looked awkward and took away from the otherwise elegant ensemble. Not to mention, she reportedly needed two men to help carry the gown's train. Thankfully, her Grammys performance more than made up for her uncharacteristic fashion faux pas. 


Cardi B embraced her role as a fianceé by donning an all-white gown that could easily be found in bridal shops across the country. (Okay, maybe not all bridal shops.) The super-structured style was an impressive piece of couture, but it seemed too stiff for the "Bodak Yellow" rapper and looked like a collection of large cupcake wrappers. Still, we could forgive — and even appreciate — Cardi B's red carpet risk if it weren't for the Ashi-designed gown's combination of short skirt and awkward train (via Billboard).  

Suited up

By now, Janelle Monae has become known for wearing sleek, tailored suits in place of gowns, and the singer and actress wore her fashion favorite to the 2018 Grammy Awards. But her choice of tuxedo left something to be desired. Rather than embrace a clean design that focused on highlighting her slim shape, Monae opted to surprise everyone with an overly embellished Dolce & Gabbana suit (via the Daily Mail). Unfortunately for the style icon, all the brightly colored floral embroidery, along with a tight-fitting jacket, a bow tie, and black and blonde hair, proved to be too much, making it hard to focus on Monae's personality and poise.

Failing in feathers

Though she's been in the business for decades, Pink still hasn't found her fashion go-tos. While we celebrate her offbeat sense of style, we also wish she'd embrace the idea that sometimes less is more. Pink donned a strapless gown with lots and lots of pink, purple, and blue feathers. She attempted to accentuate her waist with a thick black belt, but the feathers wound up covering the accessory, defeating its entire purpose. The jewel tones might have actually looked great paired with Pink's tan skin and bleached hair. However, the feathers and their haphazard pattern made for a busy dress that stole attention away from the beautiful "What About Us" singer.

All in all, we just wish Pink would give us a reason why she decided on this Armani Privé dress for the awards show (via the Daily Mail).

'90s no-no

The former The View host showed up to the Grammys with an obvious motivation to make a major statement. Debuting freshly dyed blue locks, ex-Playboy model Jenny McCarthy wore an ill-fitting black mesh, sequined gown designed by Tom Ford (via the Daily Mail). We may be able to look past her choice of dress, but we can't ignore her mishmash of accessories: a sparkly wrist cuff, black mesh gloves, and a pair of rosy rhinestone-encrusted sunglasses that look like they've been hiding in her closet since the 1990s.
