While the Oscars are known for embracing a certain brand of Hollywood glamour, the Grammy Awards are a much more in-your-face kind of fashion affair.

Some of the most iconic looks have emerged at the storied music industry gala.

Who doesn't remember Jennifer Lopez's plunging green Versace gown back in 2000?

From glam heavy metals to pops of bright feminine color, to the sleekest, chicest white, TAG24 was live at the 2024 Grammys and took an inside look at what hot fashion trends Hollywood's A-list recording artists wore in Los Angeles.

Here's what we saw!

Metallics

If you want to shine at the Grammys, metallics are the way to do it!

Pop princess Miley Cyrus, who scored two Grammys for her hit Flowers, made quite the red carpet entrance in a barely-there gold safety pin naked dress by John Galliano for Maison Margiela and big, in-your-face hair.

But when she accepted her award from Mariah Carey, she had changed into a black sparkly halter jumpsuit – and changed twice more during the event.

Dua Lipa, a nominee for her huge smash Dance the Night from the summer blockbuster Barbie movie, wore a low-cut floor-length Courreges silver gown with long sleeves and slashed cutouts, her red hair wavy and flowing. On the carpet, she said she felt like a "warrior."

Jon Batiste, the sole man in the running for Album of the Year, wore a sparkly silver suit with a pleated kilt over her trousers.

And Victoria Monet, who won three Grammys including the coveted Best New Artist prize, dazzled in a copper Versace corset dress with a train, a trend seen on several red carpets this season.

Barbie world

A lot has been written about who was and who was not nominated for Oscars for Barbie, but the movie racked up 11 Grammy nominations as well – and has definitely influenced showbiz red carpets and the Barbiecore fashion trend for months.

Billie Eilish – who won two Grammys for her poignant What Was I Made For? from the film – rocked a pink and black Barbie bomber jacket made by Chrome Hearts over a white shirt, black tie, and black trousers.

Icelandic singer Laufey, a winner for best traditional pop vocal album, looked sweet in a sleeveless pink dress with black polka dots and strategic cutouts.

And the Blind Boys of Alabama, winners of the Grammy for best roots gospel album, rolled up in matching Barbie pink three-piece suits, showing that a Barbie world is made for men too.

Olivia Rodrigo, a multiple nominee on the strength of her sophomore album GUTS, glittered in a slinky white vintage Versace column dress adorned with silver sequins and tiny red hearts.

The three members of boygenius – Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, and Lucy Dacus – bounded on stage during the pre-ceremony to accept their three Grammys in white Thom Browne suits.

And the queen of the music world Taylor Swift rocked a strapless white Schiaparelli gown to claim her record-breaking fourth Album of the Year prize. Sleek black opera gloves, a watch choker, several silver necklaces, and a classic red lipstick completed the glamorous and elegant look.

Some observers saw Swift's look as a coded message. After all, the album cover of Reputation – the fan-favorite for the next up to receive the Taylor's Version treatment – was black and white.

But onstage TayTay shockingly announced the release of a brand-new album, The Tortured Poets Department, coming April 19.

When she dropped an image of the album cover on social media, it was – what else? – black and white. The easter egg queen strikes again.
