Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center took the spotlight once again as the 62nd Grammy Awards was nothing short of ‘interesting’.
It takes guts (and millions already spent), I must say.
The red carpet was the scene of many a fashion statement (and mistake) on Sunday, January 26, and BUZZ fam, you already know the deal.
I had a dream, from the four-edged safety of my work cubicle, that the outfits from music’s biggest night are about to get dragged…
It’s Pass or Praise, the Grammy edition. Joan Rivers, I hope I make you proud!
Guapdad 4000: PASSSSSS
Ay yo, Rapunzel, let down your durag!
*snickers* Okay, I’m sorry for the pass (well not really) but I must say, I’m heavily disturbed and not impressed by that flowing durag. The suit, the white Timbs and that ten-foot durag train, *squints judgingly* you’re from New York, aren’t you?
Cultural appropriation, I hope New Yorkers sue. Next!
Lil Nas X: PRAISE
When Doja Cat said Hot Pink, 🗣️ THIS IS 🗣️ WHAT 🗣️ SHE MEANT🗣️ !
You can soothe my fashion indigestion anytime, you tall Pepto-Bismol. And that harness? *shudders*
That custom-studded Versace is just – I couldn’t be prouder of the gay yeehaw agenda. Watching the religious zealots and racist country folk froth at the mouth was very satisfying.
Billie Eilish: Pra- No. PASS
Custom, lime green and black Gucci from head-to-toe. *winces* I mean, I wanna like it, but somehow, I feel I’ve seen you in this before.
Nerdy doesn’t always mean fashion-forward, and I make no apologies.
Congrats on your Grammy sweep though!
Such a vision, Lizzo.
I’m here for all dat bawdy! Looking absolutely regal in a custom Versace dress embroidered with Swarovski crystals, Lizzo came to step on NECKS.
Don’t let up on us, Lizzo, we can take it!
Shaun Ross: PASS
Shaun, I’m disappointed. You being a model should’ve granted you the foresight to know pushing the envelope is NOT always the best idea.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love the attention to detail and it takes balls to stay dedicated to a pearl-encrusted coat and matching boots. I just think the ocean would have benefitted from you not pilfering its resources.
I already forgive you, luv.
Tyler the Creator: PASS
What in the Suite Life of Zach and Cody is this, Tyler?
So, you just gonna wear a bellboy suit to the Grammys in a bellboy suit for the red carpet in a bellboy suit for the Grammys?
*throws my chandelier at you*
Jamaica’s history-making young reggae superstar looked heartwarmingly comfortable in a black-and-white suit. That Grammy award does make that outfit pop, wouldn’t you say?
PS: Koffee, stay as pure as you are.
Billy Porter: PRAISE
I swear, every single time I see you, you never cease to amaze me.
Channelling fierce introverted realness, Billy stepped out in a turquoise-coloured, crystal-encrusted jumpsuit with silver fringes from Baja East. That automated fringe curtain that opens and closes with the touch of a button – a task delegated to Porter’s assistant – is GOALS. Brava.
Bebe Rexha: PRAISE
And the award for ‘comfiest glam’ goes to…
Bebe, this custom Christian Cowan take on the classic tux does much for the eyes – all while staying sparkly, sexy and ♬♬I don’t need anything to keep me satisfied♬♬!
Those breathing-room, comfort pants are to die for. Come thru, ma!
Gwen Stefani: PASS
I mean, on one hand, you know what you like, and I can’t drag you for that.
On the other hand, you better take this drag!
How dare you subject me to a dress variation I’ve seen from you a MILLION times?!
I’m offended and Dolce & Gabbana normally does the opposite for me.
It’s okay-ish but nothing to write home about. But if you and Blake Shelton are happy, who am I to care?
Lana Del Rey: PASS.
Look what you made me do, Lana?
I demand an apology, for the sole reason of being unable to unsee this fashion nightmare. Sparkly but unremarkable.
Please don’t misunderstand, I’m happy you were happy to just hop to a mall and buy a dress, but did it HAVE TO be so ugly?
Grammy-time madness but hey. *shrugs*
FKA Twigs: Puh-RAISE!!
This is what I expect from my favourite British artiste. Serving all the DRAMA and I love it!
Strutting in an Ed Marler ensemble and giving me a sexy, gothic Red Riding Hood meets Savage x Fenty vibe – there’s so much happening but only you could pull it off.
Ariana Grande: PRAISE
You just had to know at least someone would rock a proper ballgown to the Grammys and I’m so glad it was my forever ponytail princess!
My QUEEN of extra, parading in a huge-skirted Giambattista Valli number, served fairy-tale fantasy with a smoky ombre undertone.
But wait! There more… Who said you needed to wear just one outfit to music’s biggest night?
She came back out onto the red carpet in a massive grey Schiaparelli ballgown.
Whew! My edges have been claimed…onto the Oscars!
