THE GRAMMYS UPDATE

The Grammys are known for being experimental with your dressing. But this time around we preferred the styles of men who stuck to red-carpet worthy looks. Of course, with a few tweaks that made them stand out.

 

LIL YACHTY

It’s not just the American hip-hop artist’s choice of a monochrome tuxedo that put him on our list, but also his massive bow in place of the regular tie. But what really did it for him was the colourful grill, which he reportedly spent $35,000 on!

 

DIPLO

At an event as young and fun as this, there are no rules, even when you’re wearing a tuxedo. And DJ Diplo knowing just that choose to junk the bow for a buttoned-up white shirt layered under a black pullover.

 

JAMES CORDEN

Want a quick tip on wearing pastels? Take a cue from this English television host. The light pink jacket adds much dapperness to an otherwise tried and tested look.

 

NICK JONAS

If you’re going to bend the rules, pick a look that will get people talking, and for the right reasons. This Jonas brother ruled the outerwear game with his all-black Balmain outfit, and made more than just a statement with the studded collarless jacket.

 

JOHN LEGEND

Bored of pairing black with white? Add some magic with a colour. And learn how to do it from singer-songwriter John Legend, who chose to go with a salmon shirt and a matching bow.

No doubt, it was Adele’s year with the singer snapping up five awards for Song Of the Year, Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year, Best Solo Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album. Never thought saying ‘Hello’ could be so rewarding did you? Here are some of last year’s other Grammy-winning numbers and albums. Listen to them. #ThrowbackThursday
