Sorry, everyone on the red carpet tonight: You were upstaged by a 2-year-old in a green velour suit. This year’s Grammys red carpet lacked a capital-M Moment on the level of Pharrell’s hat or M.I.A.’s bump-heavy eveningwear,. The closest thing was Wiz Khalifa’s nattily dressed son Sebastian in his pint-size tux. Madonna grabbed our attention with a matador suit and an epic ass-flash, and Sia continued in her Stiviano-like commitment to full-face obfuscation, this time in wig format.
Relatively speaking, the biggest risk-takers were men, who opted for offbeat prints (Nick Jonas in a plaid Versace suit) and flesh-baring silhouettes (Kanye’s man-cleave; Pharrell’s formal shorts). But for the most part, the red carpet fell victim to the banality that seems to have trickled down from film awards shows — stiff gowns, stiffer hairstyles, and usually boundary-pushing performers playing it increasingly safe.
