Like all of its previous editions, yesterday’s Grammy Awards ceremony didn’t hold back on the glitz and glamour. The music world’s finest were out in full force and dressed to the nines for the red carpet, and chart-topping artistes the likes of Sza, Bruno Mars, Sam Smith and Kendrick Lamar brought down the house with their rousing performances.
What made the Grammys 2018 particularly significant, though, was the white rose initiative embraced by many of those in attendance. From Camilla Cabello to Pink and Cardi B, celebrities were seen incorporating the flower into their outfits to show their support for the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. And, of course, who could forget Kesha’s emotional and powerful performance of Praying — an apt anthem dedicated to these same causes?
This year’s Grammys ceremony did have some problematic aspects though: Save for Alessia Cara bagging the Best New Artist accolade, most of the major awards went to men. Then there was the fiasco of Lorde being snubbed — she was the only Album of the Year nominee who wasn’t invited to perform live. We’re keeping our hopes up that next year’s results will showcase a more balanced representation of both genders.
On a lighter note, the Grammys 2018 sure didn’t disappoint when it came to style. Prominent names such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga showed up in beautiful outfits jazzed up with sparkling earrings, while dapper gents John Legend and Common kept it classy with cufflinks and elegant jewels. Particularly popular was US jeweller Lorraine Schwartz’s designs, which were sported by many of the ladies. Here are 8 of our favourite jewellery looks from the star-studded ceremony.
