Celebrity Looks That Missed the Mark

HER nearly pulled off a win in this Elton John reminiscent jumpsuit, but the sheer material didn’t do her justice.

Singer-songwriter HER was nominated for multiple awards at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, arriving on the red carpet wearing a Peter Dundas jumpsuit, according to the designer’s Instagram.

The flowy yellow and orange color palette combined with the shimmery embellishments, floor-length sleeves, round sunglasses, and chunky silver platform heels were reminiscent of iconic Elton John looks.

However, the material used for the jumpsuit looked to be unintentionally sheer. It ended up highlighting linings in the wrong places, which didn’t do HER any justice.

Olivia Rodrigo’s corseted black gown, gloves, and pink bejeweled choker combo gave off Halloween vibes.

Olivia Rodrigo had a very good night at the Grammys, picking up a total of three awards including Best New Artist.

Where she didn’t win, however, was in her Vivienne Westwood red-carpet look, which consisted of a corseted black dress with an embellished optical illusion silhouette, black opera gloves, and multiple choker necklaces, according to Vogue.

While her makeup artist Lilly Keys told the publication they were aiming for a “modern punk glam vibe,” and Rodrigo’s early 2000s-esque style is usually a sure-fire success, this look in particular was more costume-like than anything else.

Alisha Gaddis’ gold-twig headpiece and voluminous mint green gown didn’t mesh.

Singer and actress Alisha Gaddis’s red-carpet ensemble combined a gold-twig headpiece with a voluminous mint green gown that looked like an outfit Amy Adams’ character from “Enchanted” would have in her closet.

If she had chosen to wear the gown without the headpiece, or the headpiece with a slightly more demure gown, either would’ve been a win.

Carrie Underwood’s sparkly mustard-colored dress was a quirky spin on what could’ve been a Disney princess moment.

Carrie Underwood looked like a Disney princess gone slightly astray as she arrived wearing Dolce & Gabbana to the Grammys.

The mustard ballgown featured a bouffant silk skirt and a sash sweeping over a bustier embellished with Swarovski crystals.

The dress itself, which could have looked better in a different color, distracted from the 39-year-old’s beautiful diamond earrings, smoky eye, and perfectly smooth middle-parted hair.

Billie Eilish is the queen of oversized chic, but this trench coat looked like it was wearing her.

Billie Eilish almost always opts for baggy clothes, and normally absolutely rocks the look.

But her signature oversized style didn’t quite work in her favor on Sunday when she walked the red carpet wearing a Rick Owens trench coat that looked more like it was wearing her, rather than the other way around.

Yola’s furry monster gloves, corset, and sleeves had a lot going on.

Purple is a great color for Yola, and Grammys red-carpet fashion is all about self-expression.

But in this case, the British singer’s look ventured too far into the realm of dress-up and Halloween costumes.

Her floor-length purple gown was lined with a fur-like material and featured a similarly-textured bodice, sleeves, and what appeared to be purple monster-like gloves with claws.

Finneas O’Connell could’ve been going to a 1980s prom with this corsage.

Billie Eilish’s older brother and musical partner Finneas O’Connell, who was nominated for multiple Grammy Awards in his own right on Sunday, wore a satin Gucci suit at the ceremony, Just Jared reported.

If he’d gone without the oversized decorative corsage and opted for more fitted suit tailoring, he could’ve been a winner. But in the end, O’Connell looked more like he was going to a 1980s prom than a prestigious music award ceremony.

Tayla Parx’s Bowser outfit paired with her mace and chain braid was a little too on the nose.

It’s safe to say subtlety wasn’t the goal of Tayla Parx’s Bowser-inspired red carpet outfit.

The singer-songwriter’s fun look consisted of lime green pants and a long-sleeved shirt, both of which had spikes on the legs, arms, and neck. She paired the unique ensemble with spiked bright yellow platform shoes, and kept her hair pulled back in a long braid that resembled the Nintendo character’s mace and chain.

It was a memorable red-carpet look, but perhaps not for the right reasons.

Addison Rae’s ivory slip dress was pretty, but forgettable.

star Addison Rae looked like she played it safe at the Grammys on Sunday.

While most celebrities dared to push the button in eclectic ensembles, the 21-year-old influencer’s ivory-white Nili Lotan cami gown, which retails for £665, or around $871, was a little underwhelming.

Cynthia Erivo’s multi-layer silver dress made it seem like she was wearing two outfits in one.

Cynthia Erivo, who is soon to be starring alongside Ariana Grande in the “Wicked” musical movie, arrived at the Grammy Awards in a silver gown.

The British actress’ Louis Vuitton dress, which the actress shared on her Instagram, featured two middle zippers, which made it look as if she was wearing two gowns.

The individual elements could have looked great on the red carpet, but this look seemed to have too many moving parts, with the thigh-high slit, ruched shoulder pads, silver embellishments, long sleeves, and a belt.

Not even Justin Bieber could make this massively oversized Balenciaga suit and Crocs work.

Justin Bieber wore an oversized Balenciaga suit to the Grammys, according to Vogue, and it’s sparked plenty of reactions from viewers online. According to The Independent, one Twitter user jokingly accused the brand of using Shaquille O’Neal’s measurements, at 7 feet and 1 inch tall, to style the 28-year-old singer.

When done right, wearing an oversized look can be a success. However, the 28-year-old singer’s suit went slightly too far by completely covering up his hands. Bieber, who both performed and was nominated at the awards ceremony on Sunday, paired the gray ensemble with a pair of Balenciaga Crocs, which didn’t help elevate the look either.

Jared Leto had an overwhelming amount of fabrics and textures for his Grammys look.

“WeCrashed” star Jared Leto wore Gucci at the 2022 Grammys, GQ reported. His look consisted of tailored suit pants, white heeled boots, a textured overcoat with brown and white fur cuffs, and a sheer low-neck shirt. He also accessorized with multiple necklaces and a pair of sunglasses, while keeping his hair down in natural waves.

Though Leto is known to be anything but a boring dresser, there was slightly too much contrast in this ensemble — all the textures and colors didn’t quite mesh together to create one finished look.
