Music drives style—so it’s only fitting that for the 61st Grammy Awards on Sunday, the men in attendance dressed all the way up. In the process, they gave us a look at the state of cutting-edge fashion: we saw super-slick suits, a surprising amount of lace, some hand-embellished corduroys, and enough leather to turn you vegan. Here are our picks for the sharpest dudes of the night.
Though Zara Larsson didn’t wind up getting a Moonman in the Best New Artist category at last night’s VMAs (Aug. 28), she certainly made an impression in the style department. For her first trip to the awards show, the 18-year-old wore a vintage velour Thierry Mugler sweetheart dress in a striking shade of green, black peep-toe heels, and matching emerald and diamond jewelry.
You’ve styled Zara for four months now. How has her approach to fashion changed since working together?
Zara has her own style and when we work together, it’s a collaboration. She knows what she likes, and she’ll tell you if she doesn’t like something. For the VMAs there were so many great options — that’s a good problem to have.
