The Grammy Awards red carpet is known to push the envelope when it comes to fashion. Past red carpets have hosted everything from elaborate priest costumes to Lady Gaga dressed as an egg. Although this year’s carpet wasn’t quite as intense (no bans on skin baring this year) there were definitely fashion risk takers. Madonna donned a Ralph Lauren pantsuit complete with top hat and bling rings, while Rita Ora rocked metallic gold. Even E! Host Giuliana Rancic amped up her style game, hosting the countdown in an edgy black, semi-sheer jumpsuit.
Among the sea of fashion trends present at the Staples Center, two specific looks stole the show: Glitz and romantic frocks were ubiquitous. These style trends were also the looks that our best-dressed picks rocked last evening. From Taylor Swift in sliver Gucci to Paris Hilton in white lace, the most impeccably dressed women on the carpet kept it glam and romantic.
