Last night’s awards featured two fashion tributes to Prince, of varying quality. Janelle Monae got high marks for her striped Sass & Bide jumpsuit, while Spike Lee was mocked for his purple hat, which drew online comparisons to Willy Wonka and the Mad Hatter. Elsewhere, Tracee Ellis Ross pulled off the perfect 180, from sophisticated snakeskin on the red carpet to evening athleisure — in the form of a cropped Vetements hoodie — during the show.
And Beyoncé skipped the red carpet, but made waves with her opening performance of “Freedom,” surrounded by dancers clad in Zana Bayne harnesses. Click through the slideshow to see our picks for the best and worst looks of the evening.
