The Grammys are unlike any other red carpet. Where else do stars have this much fun with fashion? The 2018 awards were no exception. From feathers to velvet, there were some big trends that ruled the red carpet and caught our attention. Here's how your favorite stars rocked them.

Want to see how your favorite stars sported white roses in support of #TimesUp on the red carpet? Read here.

1. Suits

It's no secret that menswear-inspired looks are becoming increasingly big part of red carpet dressing. They were popular at this year's Golden Globes and the Grammys followed suit (pun intended). From Anna Kendrick, who gave her a look a touch of girly chic with pink pumps and a lace bustier, to Janelle Monae, who wore a floral embroidered ensemble, stars had fun showing off their personal style.

2. Feathers

There's no better way to get the party started than with a feather-y frock, and that's just what stars like Pink and Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild did. While Pink went for bold colors, Fairchild and Rachel Antoff stuck with classic white.

3. Crisp white

Just like a classic black dress, you can never go wrong with crisp white (well, as long as you're not guest at a wedding). Both men and women stepped out on the red carpet in all-white ensembles. Some, like Hailee Steinfeld, decided to also add a pop color.

4. Double-breasted blazers

Sam Smith, John Legend and Ne-Yo proved that double-breasted blazers are back in style.

It's official: The double-breasted blazer is back. These daring and stylish men took an extra fashion risk by having fun with colors and fabrics — we love it!

5. Velvet

It's no secret that velvet is one of the biggest trends of the moment. From gorgeous gowns to full suits to jumpsuits, the lush fabric is popping up everywhere, so it should come as no surprise that it was the fabric of choice for many musicians.

6. Thigh-high slit

Lana Del Rey, Giuliana Rancic, Rita Ora and Chrissy Teigen weren't afraid to show a little leg on the red carpet.

There's a good reason thigh-high slits rule the red carpet event after event — and that's because they instantly take any dress to the next level. From Chrissy Teigen's split in the middle of her sparkly gown to Rita Ora's extra dramatic side slit on her velvet gown, these stars brought the heat with a peek of leg.
