The 2020 Grammy Awards kicked off only hours after basketball superstar Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter accident, and its location – the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where his championship jersey hangs from the rafters during games – was an eerie reminder of the legend who had just passed. “We’re literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built,” said the host of the night, Alicia Keys. Tributes poured in as celebrities somberly walked the red carpet and performed in his memory.
But the show must go on. With chart-topping stars like Lizzo, Ariana Grande, and Billie Eilish competing for Record of the Year, the red carpet was rife with musical talent. Traditionally, the Grammys is where weird and wonderful styles come together, and the 2020 edition was no different. We spotted Jameela Jamil in a layered Georges Chakra gown covered in reflective cobalt-blue tiles, Grande in a massive tulle Giambattista Valli dress, Eilish in a rave-ready neon green and black ensemble, and more.
