The fashion looks that grace the Grammys red carpet often skew daring and over the top (hello, J.Lo’s iconic jungle-motif number). And while that still holds true this year — looking at you, Sam Smith — A-listers are also proving the power of tried-and-true classics. More specifically, little black dresses are dominating at the 2023 Grammys. (After all, the famed king of fashion, aka Karl Lagerfeld, is quoted saying, “One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress.”) Seriously, you can’t go wrong with the always-chic style.
Popularized by the one and only Coco Chanel in 1926, the LBD remains a must-have wardrobe staple nearly 100 years later. But, of course, luxury designers are giving the iconic piece an of-the-moment refresh, as exhibited on the 65th Grammy Awards red carpet. For starters, Amanda Gorman tapped into 2023’s sheer trend with a lace-y number from Prada. Meanwhile, Anitta took a rather bold approach with her LBD, turning heads in a ruffled gown by Atelier Versace. And then there was Ingrid Andress, who took a sultry cutout Bevza maxi look for a spin.
Below, see all the LBD looks that made their way down the 2023 Grammys red carpet. And consider pulling yours out for the next swanky event on your calendar.
