Stars Shine At The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, Here’s What They Wore
The biggest stars in music gathered for the 62nd Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 26, 2020. The non-televised portion of the awards show started with a moment of silence for Kobe Bryant. One of the greatest NBA players in history and a former Los Angeles Laker, the world woke up Sunday morning to learn of his tragic death caused by a helicopter accident. As all musicians know, the show must go on, and the red carpet did not disappoint at this year’s Grammys. Here are the gowns and looks that had everyone talking.
Blake Shelton Helped Make Gwen Stefani’s Dress!
Music artist and The Voice judge Gwen Stefani arrived at the Grammy Awards wearing a Dolce and Gabbana cream-colored beaded and shell detailed strapless dress. She paired the fun yet formal look with matching thigh-high heeled boots.
Her boyfriend Blake Shelton was up for the Best Country Solo Performance award for “God’s Country”, but lost to Willie Nelson. Surprisingly, he collected some of the shells featured on Stefani’s custom-made dress himself! Stefani has won one Grammy Award in her career but wasn’t up for any awards this year.
Jessie Reyez Was Nominated For Her First Grammy
Singer and songwriter Jessie Reyez stunned at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards in a strapless red gown. The gorgeous flowing gown was designed by Canadian Romona Keveza.
Reyez was nominated for her first Grammy of her career for her EP Being Human in Public. Although her first nomination is exciting, she’s up against some tough competition in her category for Best Urban Contemporary Album, including Lizzo, who has eight Grammy nominations.
Adrienne Warren Wows in Gold
Actress, singer and dancer Adrienne Warren attended the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards swearing a stunning gold gown. She paired the look with elegant matching heels with ankle straps.
Warren most recently played the starring role of Tina Turner in the Broadway musical Tina. She’s been nominated for a Tony Award and a Laurence Olivier Award but hasn’t taken home a Grammy yet! Still, she’s a candidate for Best Dressed of the night.
Malina Moye Has Been Named Best Dressed at the Grammys Before
Malina Moye is one talented woman. She’s not only a singer-songwriter, but a guitarist, model, and an actress. The left-hander is known to play her Fender guitar flipped upside down like Jimi Hendrix.
In 2010 she was named Best Dressed of the Grammy Awards and in 2012 Glamour also named her one of the best dressed. Will she make the list again with this classic dark blue dress with low neckline and slit? We’ll have to wait and see!
Ariana Grande Stunned in A Grey Gown, Nominated for Album of the Year
Ariana Grande was nominated for Album of the Year for Thank U, Next, up against Bon Iver, Lana Del Ray, Billie Eilish, H.E.R., Lil Nas X, Lizzo, and Vampire Weekend. The artist wore an eye-catching ruffled grey gown with plenty of volume.

Grace Elizabeth’s Backless Dress is Something To Talk About
Victoria’s Secret model Grace Elizabeth is right at home on the red carpet at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. She attended the event wearing a shining silver backless gown with crossed straps.
It’s hard to believe she’s just 22-years-old as Grace Elizabeth has designed a bright future ahead of her in modeling- she also just got engaged in September 2019 to her German fiance, Nicholas Krause. Although she’s constantly traveling as an international model, she’s madly in love and loves to explore Krause’s home country of Germany.
Esperanza Spalding Was The First Jazz Artist to Win Best New Artist Nine Years Ago
Four-time Grammy award winner Esperanza Spalding attended the big night wearing a vibrant floral jumpsuit paired with silver flats. She was the first jazz artist in Grammy history to win the Best New Artist category when she was given the honor at the 53rd Annual Grammys.

But I love it!” It was also her first time walking the red carpet with her boyfriend, Sean “Sticks” Larsen.
Lizzo Has The Most Nominations and Put On A Killer Performance
Lizzo was one of the most-watched women of the night for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. The artist was up for an incredible eight awards- the most of anyone for the 2020 year.

She took home three Grammys; Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Jermone”, Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts”, and Best Urban Contemporary Album for “Cuz I Love You (Deluxe)”.

Actress and TV show personality Lala Milan wore a stunning red gown for the big night. The unique design featured an off-the-shoulder gown with one long, floor-length sleeve.
Milan looked absolutely elegant with a sleek hairstyle and dangling diamond earrings. She tied the look together with a silver clutch. We wouldn’t be surprised if she was named Best Dressed of the night for this incredible style that had heads turning.
Billy Porter Wore A Motorized Hat
Broadway performing artist Billy Porter didn’t disappoint with his red carpet-worthy attire for the evening. Stylist Sam Ratelle worked with Porter to put together his look that they call, “disco glam”. Scott Sudenberg also had a hand in Porter’s outfit, helping design the motorized hat that would mechanically move the fringe to reveal his face.
In 2014, Porter won the Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album but wasn’t up for any nominations at this year’s award show.
Billie Eilish Was Up For Six Nominations
Singer-songwriter Billie Eilish was up for six nominations at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. Appearing on the red carpet wearing a black and gold suit with a lime green layer, the 18-year-old took home Pop Vocal Album of the Year for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

Producer Kéla Walker has been nominated for an Emmy Award six times in the past, but hasn’t taken home a Grammy yet. Also an award-winning TV host, Walker flew out to Los Angeles for the big night from her home in New York City.
There’s no doubt that her fans will be closely watching Walker on the red carpet, as she’s known for her looks and fashion taste. This year she rocked a long-sleeved golden gown with a cinched waist and dramatic slit.
Ella Mai Wore Red Hot Armani
Singer-songwriter Ella Mai attended the Grammys wearing this fierce red strapless dress, custom made by Armani. This year she was nominated for Best R&B Album for her self-titled album, but didn’t take home an award.
