The political overtones were more subtle at last night’s 60th annual Grammy Awards in New York than they have been at other awards shows this season. But music’s major players banded together in support of the #timesup and #metoo movements by donning a simple and elegant accessory: a white rose.
Artists including Joe Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Sam Smith, Alessia Cara, and show host James Cordon carried or wore white roses on the red carpet, while a few others, including Lana Del Rey and Heidi Klum, came outfitted in diaphanous white fabric rose bracelets.
Elsewhere, the jewelry was unabashedly big and bold, as it always is at the Grammys. But the bling was turned up to eleven.
When it came to celebrity placements, red carpet staple Lorraine Schwartz was the big winner. The L.A.-based jewelry designer created custom titanium-and-diamond earrings for Beyoncé and massive black diamond danglers for Lady Gaga—two of the night’s most memorable jewelry looks—among other designs.
Check out Queen Bey and nine other artists (rounding out our top 10!) whose jewels ruled the red carpet last night.
