The Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala 2023 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on February 07, 2023

With our main Grammys coverage complete, we can now move onto all the looks from Clive Davis’ pre-party, where the looks were only slightly less outrageous than the ones at the main event.


Anitta in Dundas

This is gorgeous. See? We don’t hate sheer dresses on principle. They just have to be interesting to look at and pretty.



Cardi B in Roberto Cavalli

We’re surprised that we like a Frankendress made out of brown leather, but this really works. Our only issue is with the lace inserts. They don’t really work at all.


Chance The Rapper

Meh. It’s appropriate, but dull.


Charlie Puth

We don’t care about the pajama pants or the Frankenstein boots, but there’s no way in hell that white dinner jacket goes with them. This looks silly to us.


Demi Lovato in Rubin Singer

Wow. This may be a personal best for her. She looks fantastic.



Halle Bailey (in Cucculelli Shaheen) and Chloe Bailey

They’ve really staked out different styles and aesthetics for themselves. We love to see it. The big sunburst pattern smack on Halle’s crotch absolutely ruins the dress. What a terrible design decision. Chloe’s look isn’t going to win any prizes for being fresh, but she looks great in it. We’d have liked a less pointy bustline, though.



H.E.R. in Fendi Couture

We love the top and the pants, but the matching bag is a bridge too far for us.



Janelle Monáe in Vera Wang

More and more lately, we appreciate when she gets away from the whimsy and just does straight-up sexy-glam. Not that we mind whimsical fashion, but her take on it has been getting a little stale.



Lil Nas X in Moschino

Love it. Moschino is THEE brand for eye-catching trompe-l’oeil. Love this.


Olivia Rodrigo in Paco Rabanne

It’s cute and the color is interesting. She could use some jewelry and less matchy shoes.


Lizzo (in Alexander McQueen) and Myke Wright

This is really fun and she’s clearly loving it. The boots are killer, but we don’t love the garter attachment. He looks fantastic.
