2018 Grammy Awards red carpet — Gaga, Bey, Eve, Janelle, Lorde, SZA, all those white roses and more

We’re pleased to report that the 2018 Grammys red carpet did not disappoint. As Mic reported last week, white roses were the Grammy’s own spin on the Golden Globes’ call to wear all black, with the flowers worn as a sign of solidarity with the Time’s Up movement.

So yet again, we got a red carpet infused with not just spectacular fashion but a political message. However, after a stirring speech from Janelle Monáe and a powerhouse performance from Kesha, who was joined and supported onstage by fellow women in the music industry — including Cyndi Lauper and Camila Cabello — a case was made that perhaps an even more powerful moment can be created when stars don’t just unite themselves sartorially, but speak up, too.

In any case, this red carpet and show were proof that this conversation is far from fading away. Here are the looks you need to see, starting first with the people who wore — or carried — white roses on the carpet.

With the Oscars the next real big red carpet even to look forward to, we’re curious to see if politics makes an appearance on that night as well.
