2016 Grammys Red Carpet Looks

2016 Grammys Red Carpet LooksOn Monday night, Feb. 15, the 2016 Grammy Awards took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with LL Cool J hosting once again. The 58th annual award ceremony marked the rapper and actor’s fourth consecutive year as emcee.

Noticeably absent on the red carpet were Drake, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and Rihanna, who reportedly cancelled her performance at the last minute due to bronchitis. But the show did go on.

The biggest fashion trends of the night were thigh-high slits, plunging necklines, sequin embellishments and cutout details. Overall, I thought this year’s red carpet was pretty underwhelming with the exception of the few looks below that are worth mentioning.

1. Ciara
Ciara 2016 Grammys Red Carpet Alexandre Vauthier Ciara turned heads in a risqué black and silver sequined Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture Spring 2016 sheer wrap gown, styled with black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals. Her pair is no longer up for grabs but you can check out the other styles here.

Her double-breasted satin coatdress is embroidered with multi-colored sequins and decorative metallic elements by Maison Lesage, France’s oldest embroidery house in Paris.

She finished the look with glittery blue eyeshadow and sky-high red platforms.

5. Selena Gomez

The cut-out gown features a thigh-high slit and thick straps across the back. This was almost a yes for me but the back threw me off. What do you think?
