After last night’s red carpet extravaganza, we kind of thought the crazy would continue at the afterparties. Alas, it looks like a lot of the bigger celebs of the evening were like, “Byeee going to In-N-Out!” That said, from the Universal Music Group’s afterparty to Mark Ronson’s chill hang shebang, here’s a roundup of the best, worst, and crappiest looks.
Above, we have Mark Ronson demonstrating that he should wear tank tops more often and Florence Welch jumping up in down in a partially-obscured, Nudie suit-inspired outfit that seems very cool and Just Right. Below, we have parents-to-be Chrissy Teigen and John Legend looking glamorous and on-point as ever; Lady Gaga and Pamela Anderson going comic book-fierce and extremely disheveled, respectively; and Taylor Swift and Lorde giving us their best party girl poses. Swift opted for a second two-piece, which I almost like better than the one she wore to the show.
Oh my god, it’s Michelle Branch! That suit is awful, but the color works and Hotel Paper was my all-time favorite album of the 8th and 9th grade, so let’s call it even. Then we have Miranda Kerr, who is wearing the shortest and weirdest dress ever and of course looks wonderful in it. Finally, Mya, whose belt is giving me hives but whose face I have really missed!
Hm, Brooklyn Beckham is going for so many different things here, but when I was 16 I wore flared khakis and Birkenstock clogs and two polos on top of each other, so can I really comment? Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello is giving us some Day of the Dead realness and it’s a little confusing; Frankie Grande appears to be having fun.
The ladies in black—Anna Kendrick is chill and understated, Carrie Underwood less so; I thought Rachel Platten was Carried Underwood’s publicist; Zendaya is working some strong angles here but it would be vastly better without that belt. (At this point I feel like I should disclose my bias here, which is that I hate belts!)
Here’s a picture of Zendaya and Lisa Vanderpump absolutely loving each other and becoming best friends before our eyes:
Ariana Grande poses with her favorite CEOs; Hailee Steinfeld is doing a Vegas-y cape-bra-choker trifecta which feels appropriate; Quincy and Rashida Jones, both wearing cool and comfortable-looking shoes, hug it out.
Brandy looks beautiful and is rocking a very ‘90s shimmery cowl dress; I think JoJo is great but I think this dress is not great; Kacey Musgraves is wearing a bizarre paisley cupcake frock that distracts from her beautiful head; I don’t know where Sevyn Streeter’s pants went, but she looks awesome.
And that’s it, folks!
