Grammys 2023: The Best Dressed List Tonight

The stars were out in full force for the (65th) 2023 Grammy Awards, and as usual, the night was full of incredible looks. The Grammys 2023 included everything from Lizzo to Harry Styles; florals, sparkles, and a naked dress. But in a sea of elaborate outfits, who came out on top?
Grammys 2023 Choice: Dolce & Gabbana
It’s safe to say that Lizzo had a great night at the Grammys. Lizzo won the Record of The Year award at the 2023 Grammy Awards and was one of the Best Dressed on the red carpet. Lizzo took to the red carpet in a vibrant orange cape covered in three-dimensional flowers.
Under the billowing cape, the About Damn Time singer revealed a more fitted corseted dress adorned with sparkling straps and boning detail. Potentially the most beautiful part of this look was Lizzo’s makeup. The star wore a vibrant blush shade that seamlessly flowed into her eyeshadow. It’s a technique that we have seen increasingly across editorial shoots and red carpets as of late.
Grammys 2023 Choice: Gaurav Gupta
Cardi B always goes above and beyond with her red carpet-looks. At this year’s Grammy Awards, she chose a cobalt blue architectural look for her first gown. Her outfit came courtesy of Indian designer Gaurav Gupta in one of the most show-stopping looks of the night. The dress felt almost aquatic as the waves of blue fabric flowed over Cardi’s head and upper body. The conclusion from this look, Gaurav Gupta is the designer to watch this year.
Grammys 2023 Choice: Paco Rabanne
However, Cardi B’s looks did not end there. Cardi took to the stage in a silver Paco Rabanne gown, paying tribute to the late designer when presenting the award for Best Rap Album. The angular look was from the Spring Summer 2021 collection. The collection played with chainmail and helmets in a celebration of female warriors. Cardi completed this look with the matching helmet. A beautiful tribute that stood out as one of the most influential looks of the night.
Grammys 2023 Choice: Versace
Following her Fashion Month successes, Doja Cat pulled out all the stops in her Versace latex gown. The asymmetric design, mermaid train and tentacle-inspired earrings created a look not too far from Disney’s Ursula. Doja paired her striking pixie cut with micro-bangs, a dramatic winged eyeliner with a silver exaggerated inner corner. It matched the silver shimmers on her lips. After seeing this look, I will inevitably be disappointed in the costuming for Disney’s upcoming release of The Little Mermaid. Doja’s outfit was everything I could’ve asked for in a high-fashion Disney villain.
