The Best and Worst Dressed Celebrities at the 2016 Grammy Awards

The stars hit Los Angeles for the 2016 Grammys Monday evening for what is hailed as the biggest night on the musical calendar.

Many attendees were flawlessly red carpet ready, wearing everything from David Bowie inspired ensembles to striking cutout gowns.

But the Grammys are also notorious for pushing boundaries when it comes to what celebs wear, so it’s inevitable that a few famous faces missed the fashion mark.

Here were the best and worst dressed at the 2016 Grammy Awards.



Ellie Goulding

Kaley Cuoco
The Big Bang Theory actress dazzled on the red carpet in a cutout sequinned jumpsuit by Naeem Khan with a triangular midriff cutout and plunging V-neckline.


When it comes to men’s fashion, there are only a handful of variations for a man’s classic suit. But Common proved that there’s always a new way to show off some personality. The rapper opted for a monochrome suit that he accented with a polka dot shirt and a jacket trimmed with contrasting polka dot-printed lapels.

Tori Kelly 
The “Hollow” singer went classic Hollywood glam in a forest green one-shoulder number with a train by Gauri & Nainika. She accented the look with a white clutch, Stuart Weitzman heels, and statement earrings.

Selena Gomez 
Selena is known to gravitate towards glittery sequinned gowns, but she sure can pull them off. The singer hit the red carpet with Taylor Swift, wearing a blue, cutout midriff dress by Calvin Klein.

Lady Gaga 
Leave it to Gaga to fully embrace her David Bowie tribute — with a tattoo of the late, great singer on her midsection and a bold, glittery, jacket-dress worthy of the Starman.

The biggest fashion don’t for the Grammys? Showing up in a bedazzled onesie. We’re all about wanting to show off some personality, but not quite to this extent. The singer showed up in a hot pink onesie embellished with Hello Kitty dolls, angel wings, and crosses.

Johnny Depp 
Mr. Depp performed alongside heavy metal icon Alice Cooper and the rest of their supergroup, The Hollywood Vampires, for their very first television performance as they played tribute to late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister. And while Depp’s performance was right on key, his ensemble was not. He arrived in what we can only describe as Pirates of the Caribbean meets gothic rock.

Sam Hunt 
The country crooner definitely stood out in his Pepto-Bismol-hued suit, but not for the right reasons. You can really notice the wrinkles on his light pink pants, so he should have opted for a darker suit.

Jacqueline Van Bierk
This singer is known for her statement ensembles, but this vampy number and pink platforms are channeling too many dark fairy vibes. We feel bad for whoever had to sit behind her during the awards.

Skyler Grey
This singer definitely missed the mark in this sheer gown that barely covered her modesty, making it difficult to avoid eye contact with the strategically placed ‘faces’.


Z LaLa 
Known for her outrageous frocks, the singer embraced the “dare to bare” trend with an alternative spiderweb-style cage dress and matching headgear. She’s another guest we would prefer to never sit behind.
