Last night, Adele swept the Grammy Awards and cleaned up nicely in the style stakes, too, proving that the inky black dress makes for a fitting victory gown. Other style highlights included Katy Perry making a Windex-blue coif look unfeasibly elegant, Taylor Swift breaking her own style mold in gold and a midnight-clad Lady Gaga playing demure and mysterious for once, eschewing the red carpet entirely.
But it wouldn’t be the Grammys without bad and downright bizarre looks stealing the show. Russian pop upstart Sasha Gradiva combined the worlds of Mattel and Terminator into one prissy nightmare of an outfit, Fergie showed her usual proud disregard for rules about undergarments and a hellish Nicki Minaj terrorized old people and Illuminati-watchers worldwide.
We try to make sense of it all in our Grammy Red Carpet Highlights gallery.
