Vintage Versace to 90s Barbie: 5 Fashion References Seen on the Grammys Red Carpet 2024


From Taylor Swift to Miley Cyrus, check out the artists who had a few fashion and music references in their choice of ensembles for the Grammys

We have officially closed the second music award show for this year, and it was none other than the Grammys. It’s considered as music’s biggest night of the year, and it’s also one of fashion’s most anticipated events. From the hottest singers to the rising artists, all of them arrived dressed to the nines, but there are some who have a few tricks up their sleeves. With that being said, we gathered five artists that referenced a few things with their choice of ensembles for the show.

Taylor Swift bids farewell to her Reputation era for now

The black and white dress can be directed to two things, the first and obvious one is her edgy fashion back in 2017 judging by the high-slit and red lip finish of her makeup. For the second concept, the singer  announced her new album on the awards show and on Instagram, and we spotted the direct reference of the tick, tick, tick line to the watch choker she had on. We are closing the case by saying that Taylor is shutting down Reputation rumors for now, but hey, at least we’re getting a new album on April 19!

Billie Eilish Barbiefied

The 22 year-old will never fail to show her support for Barbie live action film in every possible way. For the Grammys, Billie Eilish arrived at the red carpet wearing a rather casual outfit layered with a black and pink varsity jacket, embossed with the toy’s signature typography.

As for her performance look, the singer directly referenced a 1965 Barbie doll named Poodle Parade. From the pink headscarf, tweed coat, to the green midi dress, Billie was able to get this ensemble down to the tee.

Olivia Rodrigo goes vintage

When it comes to her red carpet fashion, we can confidently say that she finds the balance between daring and elegance. A great example of this would be her taking the vintage route for her Grammy look which is a Versace RTW piece worn by supermodel Linda Evengelista in 1995. The white material highlighted the crystals that decorated the piece from top to bottom, while the double straps added a bit of edge to the overall look.

Miley Cyrus

It’s definitely her comeback era, and her choice of Grammy outfits made that known to everyone. Miley’s red carpet piece is a custom Maison Margiela that showed off her toned physique. It had subtle hints to Egyptian-like patterns, and many speculated that it is also inspired by a John Galliano F/W 1997 runway look.

For her stage ensemble, another archive design makes an appearance and it was made by Bob Mackie back in 2002. The couture silver bugle-beaded strip was part of the designer’s To Broadway With Love collection, and it captured Miley’s rocker era vibe which she established over the years.

Ice Spice in full on Y2K

The singer-rapper recently teased her upcoming album release that will happen this year, and she happened to mention that it will be titled Y2K. This is why we’re seeing her dressed from head to toe in an ensemble that screams the fashion of the past decade. You’ve got the faux fur, denim coordinates, and bejewelled accessories that all make up for early 2000s theme she’s going for.
