The 58th Grammy Awards showcases trends in style


The 58th annual Grammy’s were held in Los Angeles on Monday Feb. 15, 2016, at 8 p.m. on CBS.

This night, which is considered the biggest night in music, is also a major night in fashion.

All eyes were on the various artists who take the opportunity to showcase their unique styles on the red carpet.

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, close friends and style stars, turned heads with their contrasting outfits.

Swift chose the daring Atelier Versace red bandeau top with hot pink skirt, parted open to reveal her matching underwear.

The “Bad Blood” singer wore her signature red lipstick and a new, shorter hair cut.

Meanwhile, Gomez picked nude lipstick and smoky eye make-up, with her blue, glitzy Calvin Klein dress.

The gown was covered in sequins, with a bold cut-outs on the side. Former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood wore a black vintage-inspired gown designed by Nicholas Jebran.

The dress had a high slit to show off the singer’s legs. She paired the dress with a diamond encrusted statement necklace and a smoky eye makeup look.

Zendaya Coleman, a Disney Channel actress chose a completely different look, wearing a black suit with a white dress shirt by Dsquared.

She also sported a light brunette mullet hairstyle to top off her look.

Dresses with slits, cut-outs and sheer fabrics in black seemed to be a common style among the female artists.

The Fashion Police of the red carpet would probably not approve of singers Jacqueline Van Bierk, Manika and Z LaLa, all of whom dressed in revealing and absurd outfits.

Rapper Big Sean and country singer Sam Hunt decided to switch it up from traditional tuxedos.

Big Sean wore a white tuxedo jacket with black lining and buttons and black pants by Z Zenga. Sam Hunt arrived in a different color tuxedo by Dolce and Gabbana.

Hunt sported a light pink pastel color suit, with a sharp white shirt.

Award season is an interesting time of year because the red carpet is a spectacle of different fashion styles.

The award for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” and the prestigious “Record of the Year” award went to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars for “Uptown Funk.”

The award for “Best Rock Performance” went to Alabama Shakes for “Don’t Wanna Fight.”

Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar and Chris Stapleton picked up “Best Rap Album” and “Best Country Album,” respectively.

While “Uptown Funk” may have won the night, Ed Sheeran took home “Song of the Year” with “Thinking Out Loud.”

Meghan Trainor is the most promising up-and-comer according to the judges panel, claiming “Best New Artist.”

The well-dressed Taylor Swift didn’t just turn heads with her choice of fashion; “Album of the Year” went to her newest collection, “1989.” Finally, “Hamilton” won “Best Musical Theater Album.”
