As far as awards season goes, the Grammys has always brought the biggest, brightest and most colourful fashion to the red carpet. And the 63rd Grammy Awards was no different, a global pandemic notwithstanding.

Spring and renewal were major themes in the hybrid award show, with performers and nominees attending a socially distanced ceremony outside the Los Angeles Convention Centre on Sunday, while audiences and some nominees watched from home.

Taylor Swift, who was nominated for six awards and also made history with her Record of the Year win, had spring on her mind in a long-sleeved Oscar de la Renta mini dress covered in various types of flower appliques.

Dua Lipa sparkled in a pink sequin Versace gown with a butterfly motif. The body-skimming gown included cut-outs at the hips and a high slit.

Billie Eilish matched her long nails to a loose pink and black trouser look by Gucci, matching it with her hat and face mask.

The men impressed on the night, too. Harry Styles wore not one, but two feather boas during the course of the night. The singer opened the evening dressed in a head-to-toe leather Gucci suit, paired with a boa, and later changed to a yellow plaid jacket and flared pants for the ceremony.

One of the cutest fashion moments of the night was not at the actual red carpet. Rapper DaBaby, dressed in a flowery Dolce & Gabbana suit, created his own red carpet moment for his daughter and mother at a separate venue since no children were allowed at the LA show.

But the most meme-worthy outfit of the night went to first-time nominee Noah Cyrus, who was nominated for Best New Artist, and whose Schiaparelli haute couture dress featured a massive pleated (and crumpled?) crown. Cyrus set Twitter alight with fans comparing her look to everything from an enormous oyster to a cauliflower.

“Now we know where all the toilet paper went during the pandemic,” one person joked.
