Watching the red-carpet interview walk-ins, presentations, and performances, we kept our eyes peeled for any hint of a latex dress or an accessory. So what did we find at this year’s 65th Grammy’s? Beyond what became a never-ending argument if anything seen or heard was controversial and some historical turns, there were indeed some smashingly successful alternate fashions.
Lizzo was dressed, or ‘encased’ in a head-to-toe florid Dolce & Gabbana gown. The all-orange ensemble was voluminous set around her.
Harry Styles, who took home the “Album of the Year” Grammy, has undoubtedly been courting his share of controversy (again, worthy or not, who knows?). He bared his chest and arms in a rainbow Harlequin-patched Egonlab jumpsuit.
Harry would change later for stage appearances inside the Cryto.com Arena.
Blac Chyna followed Lizzo (somewhat), wearing all black, head to toe, in a body suit, with feathers and black stockings.
We can thank Doja Cat for wearing a full latex gown by Versace. With shoulders bared, and long opera gloves, the ensemble gathered at the bottom in a small splash of material.
Taylor Swift revealed her middle in a two-piece Roberto Cavalli. Olivia Rodrigo was in a ‘slip’ dress by Mui Mui. Cardi B wore Indian designer Gaurav Gupta’s electrifying blue gown with sculptured cut-outs. It sported a sequin hood and tight bodice.
Ingrid Andress’s cut-out Svitlana Bevza showed off her bare back and black thong.
Lastly, and arguably the most arresting look of the night, was Sam Smith and Kim Petras in their blood-red Valentino. Smith wore a floor-length gown, matching gloves, and a top hat and sported a sparkly cane. Petras was in a shorter dress under a sheer red veil.
The pair was ‘accessorized’ by an entourage, dressed in the same blood red, including RuPaul’s Drag Race drag queens Violet Chachki and Gottmik. Gottmik was in a skin-tight, long-sleeved latex dress sporting a high slit.
So, we indeed had some latex on this night!
