There was no shortage of fashion star power at the 2024 Grammys thanks to incredible looks on everyone from Coco Jones to Mariah Carey. Then there was Miley Cyrus, who channel Barbarella with a look only she could pull off so brilliantly. As for the color of the night, that belonged to Jones’ icy pale blue gown, which was dreamy and effervescent.
But ask Glamour editors, and everyone has a different opinion for who gets their ‘best-dressed’ of the night. That’s the beauty of the Grammys, where anything goes, and often works. So whose looks will we still be talking about tomorrow and the next day? See below for our best dressed picks of the night.
“Feels like a nod to great Grammy dresses of the past like the famous J. Lo green one but still fresh and worthy of one of the biggest breakout music stars this year.”—Samantha Barry, editor in chief
“I’m sorry, but Miley Cyrus was the moment at the Grammys. Not only did she win her first two awards, but she killed it in this sheer chain gladiator style dress (does it count as a dress? Who cares), complemented by huge curls. It’s giving the iconic Pepsi Super Bowl commercial in the best way, and I love how she just goes for it.”—Stephanie McNeal, senior editor
Lana Del Rey
“Lana Del Rey’s red-carpet looks never disappoint, and her 2024 Grammys ensemble was no different. Del Rey rocked a sheer, floral puff-sleeved 1960s-inspired dress and matching sheer gloves and pumps complete with bows, giving ‘coquette, but make it Wednesday Addams’ vibes. Meanwhile, her beehive bangs, blowout, and romantic glam were reminiscent of Brigitte Bardot meets Jackie Kennedy. So many references, so little time. 100% iconic!”—Danielle Sinay, associate beauty editor
“The category was nude, and she nailed it. I’m always amazed at how she’s able to transform her locs, and her wavy hair tonight was no different. Her barely-there nude dress was paired perfectly with her subtle makeup look. Is she channeling Ariel with this wet look? Maybe. Either way, I’m impressed.”—Jazmin Gathers, manager, social media
“Chloe brought body to the show with this abs-baring, one-shoulder beaded gown. To me, the Grammys red carpet is all about balancing fun with red carpet glam, and this look does so flawlessly. And I love the beauty look too!”—Lindy Segal, interim deputy editor
“Elegance with an edge, thanks to this shimmery, body-hugging pale blue gown with an open bodice by designer Celia Kritharioti is why Coco Jones is my best dressed of the night. It’s the dreamiest color and the perfect fit. If I was ever nominated for a Grammy, this is what I’d wear. Well done, Coco. Well done.”—Jessica Radloff, senior West Coast editor
“Lipa is the queen of effortlessly cool dressing and this custom Courreges gown is a prime example. It’s a little bit disco (a nod to her nominated song “Dance the Night”) and little bit rock ‘n’ roll. I love how the dress hangs loosely on her frame, as well as the peekaboo cutouts at the hips, which are subtle yet super sexy. Despite being in a metallic silver gown, Lipa makes it seem so blasé in the best way.”—Ariana Yaptangco, senior beauty editor
“Leave it to alt music’s biggest It-girl to bring body horror glam to the Grammys. There’s only one word to describe this vintage ‘90s look–’dang!’”—Anastasia Sanger, senior manager, social creative development
“You can’t talk about the 2024 Grammys without mentioning Mariah Carey. That sparkling gold gown was luminescent on the iconic singer and fit her like a glove. My only disappointment is that she didn’t walk the red carpet; that gown—and the woman in it—deserved every flashbulb on it.”—J.R.
“The boys were in fine form in their matching white Thom Browne suits. The defining element of the coordinating ensembles was the pink carnations on each of their lapels—a reference to the lyrics for ‘We’re in Love,’ which Lucy Dacus wrote as a love letter to bandmates Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker.
‘In the next one, will you find me? / I’ll be the boy with the pink carnation / Pinned to my lapel, who looks like hell and asks for help / And if you do, I’ll know it’s you.’
Cute as hell, literally and figuratively.”—Sam Reed, senior editor
