The Grammys red carpet always looks like an intergalactic space orgy sprinkled with a bunch of random rappers who just rolled out of bed with barely enough time to grab their grill from the bedside table thrown in for good measure. Every year, it’s a mess. Plus you’ve always got legitimate superstars mixed in with a whole lot whosits and whateverhappenedtos. This year’s Grammy red carpet was no exception. I’m trying to sift through some of these looks, and honestly don’t know where to begin.
When you’ve got some trick wearing a literal “build the wall” dress and carrying a MAGA purse (Joy Villa, striking again), George Clinton done up like an Star Trek extra who got lost on the set of Game Of Thrones and just went with it, Katy Perry looking like a Panic Pete squeeze doll, and Meghan Trainor dressed like a fresh out the wrapper tampon, the brain and eyes get a little overwhelmed. For instance, I barely have the energy to acknowledge Colombian singer Andrea Echeverri’s outstanding look (above) with anything more that a passing, “well, that is something”. So here’s what I’ll do, I’m going to pick one theme and go with that.

I hope for Kylie Jenner’s sake she skipped the Tummy tea last night because there’s no rushing to shit your pants in this outfit. But what she lacks in the ability to access her vagina or butt, she makes up for in her ability to tend to a little alien baby in a sterile incubator like they had up in The Black Hole club on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Luckily for her, the pants are so generous, if she did drop a load (and from the look on her face, I believe that to be the case), she’s got plenty of room to house a diaper.
I’m kind of in love with Fantasia’s spooky ass one-glove wonder. It looks like she’s getting a reach around from some Suspiria entity or a hairy spider poltergeist with a penchant for jewels. It’s confusing, sexy, and dramatic. I wonder how much of her it consumed by the end of the night.
Now, this certainly wasn’t the first time somebody wore full length leather gloves to the Grammys. It’s probably not even the first time a gentleman has worn them. But it’s definitely the first time a time traveling goth football warrior with a single blond deadlock who’s narrowly escaped capture after stealing away Judah Frielander’s face has worn them (to the Grammys, at least). This is Canadian producer Shawn Everett, and his mom stayed up half the night helping him put this costume together.
