The usually off-the-hook Grammys red carpet kicked off today, when the music industry gathered for the non-televised portion of award-giving in a mix of classic black, shimmer and bold colours.
And some memorable man jewellery around the neck of Rufus Wainwright and a lapel of reggae artist Collie Buddz. Wainwright wore a party of gold necklaces. Buddz went for a grouping of jewelled brooches. They were right on trend.
Grammys fashion is traditionally, well, non-traditional. This time around, there was plenty of old-school elegance, including an embellished gold gown for jazz musician Lakecia Benjamin. Singer-songwriter Lila Downs showed off her Mexican heritage in a black look with a shawl, her hair in two long braids.
Amid the bright pinks and greens were pops of red, orange and purple. English musician Romy wore a sparkly red tuxedo look with a sheer lace blouse peeping out. Winners at the early Premiere ceremony showed off their Grammys around their necks.
