The Most Head-Turning Beauty Looks From the 2020 Grammys

If there's anyone who knows how to really make a splash on a red carpet, it's the stars of the music industry. The singers, songwriters, rappers, and performers in this realm are daring and adventurous in all the best ways and have truly mastered the art of red carpet slayage better than just about anyone. While we hate to play favorites, it's just a fact that we'd be hard-pressed to name a step and repeat that's as consistently exciting as the one at the Grammy Awards. This year, at the 62nd annual gathering of music's brightest stars, the beauty looks were absolute fire.

Don't get us wrong: The year's previous red carpets, like those at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards, were a blast to watch, but in terms of excitement and ingenuity, the looks at the Grammys always take the cake. And with a nominee list stacked with some of our favorite beauty queens, such as Lizzo, Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Rosalía, and the one and only Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, it's really no surprise that the hair, makeup, and flawless skin inspiration were all on point.

Ahead, check out the most striking beauty looks that garnered standing ovations from team Who What Wear, and be sure to check back frequently for all the dazzling updates.

Old Hollywood glam is always a favorite on any red carpet, so we were so pleased to see Lizzo continuing her appreciation for the vintage look. The soft curls and glowing skin are just too good.

We need to talk about Ariana Grande. The cat eye, the glossy lip, the sky-high lashes, and that flipped long ponytail? We are living for this drama!

Not to toot our own horn, but we seem to remember calling out the blunt-bob haircut trend last year, and ever since, it has reached new heights. London is the latest star to show us her version of the sleek, sophisticated cut.
