Despite multiple criticisms by some of the music world's biggest stars, the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards proved to be a celebration of women in music. Beyoncé topped the night with nine nominations and went home with four, breaking the record for most Grammys ever by a female artist with a total of 28. Taylor Swift may have only won one out of her six award nominations, but she also broke a record for the first female artist to win 'Album of the Year' three times. The rest of the top awards—'Record of the Year', 'Song of the Year' and 'Best New Artist'—were all awarded to the respective female nominees: Billie Eilish, H.E.R., and Megan Thee Stallion.
For an institution and award ceremony that has often been lambasted for not properly acknowledging musicians who deserve to be nominated, Grammys 2021 seemed to hopefully make a turn for the better.
On the red carpet, the nominees, presenters, and performers who turned up for Grammys 2021 spared no expense when it came to the fashion. And even though there was no live in-studio audience to impress, they made it worth a watch for all of us tuning in to the stream from across the globe.
Host Trevor Noah opted for the classic Grammy-host route with a formal Gucci tux, while the always boundary-pushing Harry Styles took to the red carpet in a full Gucci ensemble that was anything but expected (or ordinary). Other notable mentions include Korean boyband BTS who looked every bit the hyper-stylised group in their full monochromatic Louis Vuitton fits, and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala who beamed in from his home in Perth, Australia but made the effort to still be stylishly decked out in Versace.
