Usually a major night in music and for fashion moments, the 2021 Grammy Awards was a slightly more muted affair this year. Nevertheless, it guaranteed live performances that kept energy levels high and wins that proved women supporting women was one trend we won’t be seeing the last of.
Harry Styles opened the show with an energetic performance of “Watermelon Sugar,” which his ex in the audience, Taylor Swift was seen wholeheartedly supporting. She herself went on to make history by winning Album of the Year (her third) for Folklore and name checked boyfriend Joe Alwyn, and celebrity couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively in her thank you speech.
19-year old Billy Eilish won the night’s biggest award, Record of the Year, for Everything I Wanted. In accepting her award, she said that she was “embarrassed,” believing that Megan Thee Stallion should have won the award for Savage instead. Honouring her fellow nominee, she said, “You had a year that I think is unstoppable. You are a queen. I want to cry thinking about how much I love you. You are so beautiful. You are so talented. You deserve everything in the world. I think about you constantly. I root for you always…Can we just cheer for Megan Thee Stallion?”
Those attending the show (and even some who didn’t) brought their A-game when it came to fashion. Here are our picks for best fashion moments both on the red carpet and on stage.
