59th Annual Grammy Awards: The glamorous, quirky and outrageous on the red carpet

Award season is all about the fashion and the 59th Annual Grammy Awards is no exception.

The Grammy Awards, which is held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, kicked off with its red carpet on Monday morning (Feb 13, Singapore time).

Here's a look at some of the eye-catching outfits from the red carpet.

Life's pick of the three best looks

1. Adele

Although netizens thought that Adele’s custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci resembled a ketupat, the 28-year-old, who won Best Pop Vocal Album for her album 25, looks great in green. It is a departure from her usual black dresses.

2. Heidi Klum 

The 43-year-old knows that as a supermodel with mile-long legs, all that is needed for the red carpet is a sequined T-shirt dress with a very short hemline.

3. Faith Hill 

The statuesque American country singer, who stands at 1.77m, looks beautiful in this striking red gown. The 49-year-old went with matching red accessories and red lipstick, which complements her blond hair perfectly.


Life's pick of the three worst looks

1. Girl Crush 

Performing artist Girl Crush must have mixed up her dress code for the Grammy Awards with one for a five-year-old’s birthday party. Also, how is she doing to sit in that plastic ball skirt?

2. Jacqueline Van Bierk

The singer-songwriter took the music theme of the Grammy Awards literally. Not only is it unoriginal, it is outdated - who listens to CDs anymore?

3. Katy Perry 

The 32-year-old American singer usually ups the sexy quotient but she hides her figure in a messy outfit this time. The sequin tunic is at an awkward length and the feather skirt looks dirty and frumpy like a feather duster.


Life picks three fashion trends 

1. Cut-out dresses

Showing cleavage is not a new trend on the red carpet, but singers Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood and Demi Lovato all went for strategic diamond-shaped cut-outs at the bust for a different take on the plunging neckline.

2. Sequin/metallics

Sequins and metallics will always have a spot on the red carpet. Silvery metallics are especially flattering, as Canadian-American pop singer Kaya Jones, German-American model Heidi Klum and American contemporary Christian music singer and songwriter Lauren Diagle knows.

3. White jackets

White jackets seemed to be a favourite among the men at the red carpet, as seen on American country singer Thomas Rhett and Dre of American record producer and songwriter duo Cool & Dre.
