Given the high visibility of music stars, their penchant to just about wear any alternate couture possible (and lots of it during a night that saw Rihanna change three times) and stage costuming concerns, it is no wonder the fashionista stories keep a’coming after last Sunday night’s 2018 Grammy’s. There were throwbacks and brand new shout-outs and break-out stars making as much of an impression on the red carpet as on the stage. In fact, one can pretty much imagine now a delineated universe between red carpet couture and inside-the-building wardrobe choices…when it comes to the Grammy’s especially.
Cardi B, the current biggest thing, garnered lots of attention on her way in wearing a white wedding gown made by Mohammed Ashi. She wore colorful shorts, top and hat when she performed with Bruna Mars later. This is when Cardi B quipped a quote many are repeating this week, concerning how nervous she was prior to her pefromance: “I have butterflies in my stomach and my vagina.”
Lady Gaga did her swan bit during her performance (to be fair her piano wore the wings) but coming down the red carpet she was in a corseted pony tail, black lace top, leggings and a full skirt with a train. She later flipped off the skirt to reveal her full tight body-hugging lace outfit.
Kesha went in nude, or more specifically in a Nudie suit, as we mentioned last blog, but performed the show-stopper “Praying” all in white. Cyndi Lauper as well donned a suit, her’s of gray that matched her locks, festooned with colorful designs across it. When she performed the ending tune with Kesha the “She Bop” princess was in all white too, as were the rest of the female singers aligning themselves with the ceremonial white roses and the movement.
Miley Cyrus walked in wearing a black skinny suit, but later opted for a long red gown singing off of Elton John’s piano.
Inside or outside, the Grammy’s are still be touted a boom for the fashion industry. Maybe even more so than for the music industry?
