Best Dressed Men of the 60th Annual Grammy Awards 2018

RED CARPET FLAIR. The first awards session for the music industry took place last night, so we look back at the best dressed men of the evening

Big Sean and Elton John on the Grammy’s Red Carpet

It’s award season again, and after the usual run of actors and movie execs taking to the red carpet, we now focus our attention to the music industry for the 60th annual Grammy Awards. As always, musicians are rarely the type to hit the red carpet in the typical black and white tux, although the odd sighting will make an appearance, often by new artists yet to familiarize themselves with the industries flamboyant fashion sense.

This year’s Golden Globe awards saw celebrities don all back outfits in support of the “Time’s Up” movement, and at the Grammy’s the musicians chose to show their support by wearing a white rose. Without further ado, we present to you our pick of some of the best dressed men at the 60th annual Grammy Awards, in no particular order.

Donald Glover in Ermenegildo Zegna

Some may recognize him for his award-winning role in the comedy show Atlanta, but hip hop fans also recognize him as rapper Childish Gambino. Taking a bite out of the all black outfits of the Golden Globes, Donald Glover did the opposite and went all white in this stuning outfit by Ermenegildo Zegna. From his tie and tux to his pants were all white, only breaking the monotony with his black loafers. Not an easy look to pull off, unless you have a dark complexion.

Suits don’t always have to be black, and Zayn Malik made this point clear by gracing the red carpet in this beautifully tailored pink suit by Richard James. The ultra-slim style of the suit and Malik’s good looks keeps him from looking like a politician from the south. The colorful socks were also a nice touch.

Sam Smith in Cerutti 1881

Having lost quite a bit of weight, Sam Smith showed off his new figure in this all green suit by Cerutti 1881. Green may seem like quite an intimidating color for some men, but if you happen to have a fair complexion and a slightly reddish hair tinge, the color will do you justice, especially when on the red carpet.

One way to make a statement on the red carpet is to come wearing a velvet jacket, either in a dark burgundy or deep-dark blue to contrast the color of the red carpet itself. Musician and now actor Ne-Yo chose to try a mustard colored velvet jacket and successfully pulled the look off. This look is especially good for those with a darker complexion.

Nick Jonah in John Varvatos

Nick Jonah seems to be self-promoting his yet to be released fashion collaboration collection with John Varvatos. The Rock ‘n’ Roll inspired design feeding off the city of Detroit is a fitting style for musicians, despite looking a little too casual for such an award show as the Grammy’s.

Big Sean in Salvatore Ferragamo

Rappers have always been known to look past the norm and come to the red carpet in their own personal style. Big Sean is one such persona who came in this simple yet stunning navy blue layered ensemble by Salvatore Ferragamo highlighted by a simple platinum chain around his neck. Simple yet eye catchy none-the-less.

Luis Fonsi in Dsquared

Luis Fonsi, the man responsible for keeping the reggaeton hit “Despacito” stuck in our heads all summer long last year attended the Grammy’s traditional black tux by Dsquared, which he gave a touch of flair by adding slipping a tailored black sequined vest underneath.

John Legend in Burberry

Although we jested that only new comers to the Grammy’s would be spotted wearing a traditional tuxedo, multiple award-winning musician John Legend chose to grace the red carpet in this double-breasted midnight blue tuxedo by Burberry. Seeing the suit alone may seem normal, but when you have a pregnant Chrissy Teigan around your arm, you’re at totally different level.

Sir Elton John in Gucci

You can’t have a best dressed list without mentioning Elton John. The knighted musician took to the red carpet in all his flamboyance, wearing a colorfully sequined jacket by Gucci. The musician who is set to take off on his last ever world tour next month brought the razzle to the dazzle that the Grammy’s have always been known for.
