With appearances from Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles, the star-studded Grammys felt almost like a return to normal awards shows.

It meant there were plenty of red carpet outfits to ogle, many of which we actually want to wear ourselves…

Harry Styles’ feather boa

Harry Styles

With a yellow check jacket and purple feather boa, Styles’ look was straight out of 1995 movie Clueless. A feather boa is a genius way to add camp glamour to any look, something we’ll definitely be doing this summer.

Taylor Swift’s matching mask

Taylor Swift

Swift’s Oscar de la Renta minidress covered in floral applique suggests the popstar is very much ready for spring. It was cute and whimsical – but what we really respected was her dedication to matching her mask to her outfit. That’s a style tip we can all replicate at home, even if we’re not wearing designer garms.

Beyonce’s soft glam

Beyonce

Beyonce broke records by winning her 28th gong, making her the most awarded woman in Grammys history. She kept her look simple but cutting edge in a black leather minidress and matching gloves by Schiaparelli – topped off with soft waves in her hair and subtle, glowy make-up with shiny nude lips. It was a masterclass in soft glam – the kind of look that would suit almost any occasion.

Literally all of Megan Thee Stallion’s look

We might not have many formal events coming up, but if we did, we’d want to dress like Megan Thee Stallion. The rapper amped up the sex appeal in a bright orange Dolce & Gabbana gown, with a massive bow and thigh-high leg slit.

Dua Lipa’s Cher hair

While most of us are desperate to get a professional haircut, Dua Lipa’s waist-length, poker straight hair might convince us to keep growing it out. Worn with a sparkly Versace dress, the whole look felt like an ode to pop legend Cher.

Phoebe Bridgers’ dark lip

Spring might be upon us, but that doesn’t mean you have to switch up your make-up to be brighter, more colourful and full of pastels. Instead, take inspiration from Bridgers, who showed how a dark lip can easily work in March – particularly when the rest of your beauty look is kept pared back and simple.

Noah Cyrus’ bed-inspired look

Noah Cyrus

With Covid-related restrictions easing in the near future, many of us are understandably nervous about wearing real clothes and heading out into the world again. Not to worry – because you can take a leaf out of Cyrus’ book – she proved it’s acceptable to wear your bed sheets as a full outfit.

Chika’s formal activewear

Or you could take inspiration from Chika, who indicated activewear really is here to stay, and that a full pastel Nike look is as appropriate for the red carpet as it is your living room.
