The 62nd Annual Grammy awards ceremony was the best way to start the decade as celebrities turned up in dazzling and breathtaking ensembles. The night was not only characterized by award-winning artists and attention-grabbing performances, but also celebrities who strutted on the red carpet with their dressed-to-kill looks.
Some of the celebrities who set a new record when it came to slaying on the red carpet include:
It’s only fair to begin with the host, the person who ensured the whole exciting ceremony flowed smoothly. That person is non other than musician Alicia Keys. She also hosted last year’s Grammy awards. She wore a dazzling silver gown by
There’s a reason why Lizzo is loved by people. Not only is she authentic and unmoved by people’s criticism about her body, she also inspires body positivity in people. Lizzo had the most nominations in the event, 8 to be exact.
Rosalia looked stunning in an Alexander Wang leather dress.
Ariana Grande appeared at the Grammy with a big gray gown and matching gloves. The ensemble looked like those of princesses in fairy tales and it did not disappoint.
Dua Lipa decided to appear in a simple silk two-piece. Her skirt and top were designed by Alexander Wang and although it had that 90’s vibe, it was a little too simple for a red-carpet look.
Musician Camila Cabelo chose to rock a black Gothic gown and a necklace estimated to be about two million dollars.
The eccentric looks
The country musician is largely known for his tendency to wear a fringed mask.
Billie Eilish did not back down when it came to showcasing her unique and eccentric mode of dressing on the red carpet. She stood out like a sore thumb in her signature dyed hair and baggy clothes. Although this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, it surely served the purpose of advancing her name brand. Billie was the first person to win awards in all the four major categories since 1981. She bagged 5 awards in general.
The musician made his political opinions known at the Grammy by writing “Impeach this” on his butt.
The 50-year old puts on a show every single time on the red carpet. This time he wore an attention grabbing jumpsuit with tassels at the legs.
Joy Villa likes to wear gowns and outfits that communicate her political opinions and this time she wore a gown that was written: Trump 2020, impeached and re-elected.
All Hail Hollywood’s Newest Leo-Kate Duo
By Odhiambo Neema
Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet have taken the world by storm.
Saoirse, 26, is an Irish-American actress who has received various accolades, including a Golden Globe Award and nominations for four Academy Awards and five British Academy Film Awards. Throughout her career, she has had iconic roles such as Jo March in Greta Gerwig’s 2019 adaptation of Little Women, Ellis in John Crowley’s Brooklyn, Christine Lady Bird McPherson in, again, Greta Gerwig’s phenomenal film Lady Bird and Mary Stuart in Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots.
On the other hand, Chalamet, 24, is the immensely talented American actor who played the charming (but finally devastating) Theodore Laurie in Little Women, the weird Kyle Scheible in Lady Bird, the boy fighting a serious meth addiction in Felix Van Groeningen’s touching Beautiful Boy and the king in David Michod’s 2019 The King (No, seriously). Chalamet has also received numerous awards including a New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor and an Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead. Additionally, he has been nominated for an Academy Award, three British Academy Film Awards, two Golden Globe Awards and four Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Move over Jack and Rose!
The two have been involved in a handful of films together, and have been each other’s love interests. In Little Women, he was Laurie, the neighbor who fell in love with Jo, but married Jo’s sister, Amy (Yes we will never forgive the author, Louisa May Alcott). For Lady Bird, his character Kyle likes Lady Bird, but also doesn’t? He’s just weird. Very weird. In light of their appearances together, their swoon-worthy talent and on-screen chemistry, fans have started referring to them as “the Kate and Leo of our generation”. Some have even gone as far as calling them “this generation’s Cate Blanchett and Daniel Day-Lewis.” That’s partly a nod to their incredible talent and partly a serious SMH to the fact that despite their palpable chemistry, they are only friends.
BUT GUYS. Cate Blanchett? Daniel Day-Lewis? The future looks very much like Saoirse with a chance of Chalamet, what with both of them appearing TOGETHER, once again, in 2021’s The French Dispatch?
C’est une vie en rose. Non?
New movie alert or nah?
A movie poster by the title Escape is doing rounds on social media and has caused a frenzy. The reason? It features three of the greatest criminal masterminds recent in movie/film history. Supposedly directed by ‘Dilichi’ the poster features Wentworth Miller aka Michael Scofield from Prison break, James Spader aka Reddington from The Blacklist and Alvaro Morte aka The Professor from Money Heist.
The film which is supposedly meant to air on streaming service Netflix has fans of the three shows excited over the three criminal geniuses working together. Naturally, the poster elicited reactions from thousands of social media users with many wondering why they have not spotted the seemingly action-filled movie on the platform until the poster’s creator revealed the truth.
Much to the disappointment of many, the poster is not real and is merely wishful thinking by visual artist @TheDilichi on Twitter.
So I designed a cover for a film starring the top 3 escape artists on TV 🏛 pic.twitter.com/jwEklTN43g

However, fans are already rallying for the three actors to come together and work on a similar project.
