The Grammys 2021

The 63rd Grammy Awards took place on Sunday night (14/03/21), a little later than usual (January). Although Covid-19 caused a date changed, it did not stop the extravagant outfits, exceptional performances and emotional speeches that we have come to know and expect from the coveted awards ceremony.

Here is a lowdown of the winning looks and the winning artists of the 2021 Grammy Awards.

The Red Carpet Outfits

The red carpet wasn’t as busy as previous years, but here are some of my favourite outfits from the evening:

The 1: Of course, Taylor Swift would make this style list. Long story short, Taylor looks gorgeous in this pretty floral dress, with no cardigan in sight.

Gorgeous Guyton: New country singer, Mickey Guyton, wowed in this Valentino dress, before taking to the stage to perform her latest single, ‘Black Like Me’.

Host With The Most: Comedian, Trevor Noah, who was the main host of the evening, looked dapper in his tux.
