The 65th Grammy Awards opened in a grand ceremony hosted by the South African talent powerhouse Noah Trevor at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on February 5, 2023. The greatest names in the music industry walked in on the red carpet with full fashion power turning the event into a celebration. Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny entertained the audience with his opening performance, setting the tone for the whole event.
Lizzo’s About Damn Time brought her accolade with the Record Of The Year; the singer also set the stage on fire with her powerful performance through her infectious energy. xBeyoncé made a late in vogue to the event as she made history by winning the most Grammys while picking up her 32nd trophy for Renaissance. In her acceptance speech, the singer thanked the queer community for sharing their love and inventing the genre. So much for the anticipation; the bizarre singer Lady Gaga was a no-show at this year’s event. In an infamous video that went viral, Quavo and Offset were seen fighting backstage between Grammys, cést la vie.
Like always, this year, too, saw some major fashion shifts. Harry Styles sported a shining checkered rainbow jumpsuit and finished the look with white boots. Taylor Swift dazzled in a sparkly midnight blue co-ord. J Lo wore a plunging neck Gucci gown with a high thigh slit and complemented the look with multiple layers of Bulgari Serpenti necklaces with over 150 carats of diamonds. Camilla Cabello stole the show with her outfit. The singer donned a see-through pearl bra and a high-slit black skirt. American rapper-songwriter Cardi B put her fashion game on with a stunning Gaurav Gupta neon blue gown.
