Grammy Red Carpet Style: A Stroll Down Memory Lane
When it comes to the Grammys, pop stars and musicians usually take a fun, funky or anything-goes approach to dressing. But at the 58th Grammy Awards in LA on Monday, the hottest young musical stars of today took a style page from yesteryear. Not only did a few take inspiration from eras past when big events called for cleaning up and dressing up, but a few also took inspiration from the iconic looks of past musical legends. It was a return to old-school glamour and nostalgia.
We take a look at the young celebs who paid homage to eras past.
Taylor Swift in Atelier Versace, goes for a 1950s debutante-style ball gown but gives it a modern update with electrifying colours, a leg-exposing slit and midriff baring bandeau top.
