Join WSPN’s Melina Barris and Ben Jackson as they summarize their thoughts and feelings about the looks shown at the 2024 Grammy’s.

The annual Grammy’s occurred on Sunday, Feb. 4, and countless talented artists came dressed in a variety of exciting and interesting looks on the red carpet. Whether it was simple attire or a unique gown, the stars of the night grabbed fans’ attention. Here are our opinions on five selected looks worn at the Grammys.

Taylor Swift’s look at the 2024 Grammys was flawless. The white gown that split at her hip draped down the red carpet and matched perfectly with the velvet black gloves she wore. Continuing the black and white theme she established, Swift wore simple black heels, perfectly complementing her gloves in both color and material. The finishing touch was the silver and black gem necklaces that were layered over each other. During this event, Swift announced her new upcoming album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” and when comparing the album cover and Swift’s attire at the Grammys, you can notice they both share a common thread: an introduction to Swift’s new era. The one thing that could’ve made Swift’s look more appealing was a different hairstyle. We prefer Swift’s natural curly hair, and the braid along with her bangs pushed to the side of her face was not our favorite. Overall, Swift’s look was sophisticated and set the tone for her new album.

Our top look at this year’s Grammy’s was Olivia Rodrgio’s. Even though we were disappointed about Rodrgio not receiving any awards, her iconic style and look made up for it. Rodrigo’s dress was clean cut, with a cream color base along with pink and white gems placed on top. We admired that the amount of gems on her dress was a perfect balance between classy and overwhelmingly flashy. We also liked Rodrigo’s simple hairstyle, leaving her hair down and pushed over to a subtle side part. Lastly, the red lip completed the entire look, as sometimes, a classic shade of red lipstick serves as the perfect finish for the entire ensemble.

Billie Eilish’s look was a perfect reflection of the song she sang in the “Barbie” movie released this past summer, “What Was I Made For?” Similarly to Eilish’s attire at other events she attends, she wore pants and a statement shirt. This year, Eilish dressed in a puffer coat with pink polkadot sleeves, and with the “Barbie” logo on the left side of her coat. Since she was a nominee for “What Was I Made For?” we felt that the “Barbie”-themed look was an accurate representation of the song she created for the movie. When performing her song, Eilish sported a green dress, with a hot pink top underneath. On top, Eilish wore a checkered coat with a pink silk head scarf over her hair. This was a recreation of the 1965 limited-edition Poodle Parade Barbie. Ultimately, we thought Eilish’s look for this year’s Grammy was exactly on point.

We thought that Ice Spice wore an outfit that only she could pull off. She showed up in a fur-lined denim jacket and a matching maxi skirt, which matched her iconic orange hairstyle nicely. To top it off, she wore a belt buckle with the word “smoochie” written on it. The outfit was a “Custom Baby Phat” styled by Timothy Luke Garcia, who helped make her outfit unique to her. She was nominated for four different Grammys: best new artist, best rap song, best song written for visual media and best pop duo/group performance. Unfortunately, she never got to take the stage.

Lana Del Rey didn’t win a Grammy this year, and it might be because her outfit brought her bad luck. Del Rey has always dressed to stand out. For the 2020 Grammy’s, she showed up in a dress that she picked at the last minute from the mall. This year, Del Rey wore an all-black semi-sheer dress with puff-sleeves and subtle floral designs. She also had on matching black heels and black gloves, both decorated in black-bows which matched the bow in her hair. To fit with the all-black look, Del Rey brought a small black purse that, unfortunately, had no black bows on it. She wore white diamond earrings from Fred Leighton Jewelry, which were hidden behind her hair for most of the night. Her outfit was styled by Molly Dickson and tailored by fashion designer Sugar Ferrini. Dickson had also styled Del Rey’s 2020 grammy outfit. Overall, while this year’s outfit was a good attempt for Del Rey to stand out, but she ended up looking like she accidentally stumbled into the Grammy’s on her way to a funeral.
