GALLERY | Tyla in Versace, Musa Keys in all black and more red carpet looks from the 2024 Grammys

Written by on 5 February, 2024

The 66th annual Grammy Awards took place in Los Angeles at the Arena and South Africa was well represented.

Hosted by Trevor Noah for the fourth time in a row, the ceremony saw exciting moments and record-breaking wins that are sure to be etched in history. Tyla’s Billboard chart-topping hit Water won the inaugural Best African Music Performance Award at the ceremony, making the Grammy her first prestigious music award to date.

Not even historic rains could dampen the glitter and gold of the Grammys red carpet. From glam rock fashion to Old Hollywood glam, glamour was the word of the day.

Music’s biggest night delivered big red carpet moments. Miley Cyrus, who won her first-ever Grammy later in the night, opted for a daring number: a completely sheer Maison Margiela dress made of gold safety pins. At 20 years old, Olivia Rodrigo is already a fashion favorite who served another knockout look in archival Versace. Billie Eilish sported a vintage Barbie-themed varsity jacket from Chrome Hearts. Dua Lipa, Janelle Monáe, the women of Boygenius, Kylie Minogue and Ice Spice also took the red carpet by storm, along with fashionable men Maluma, Burna Boy, Musa Keys, Jon Batiste, Peso Pluma and Calvin Harris.
