Dua Lipa in Alexander Wang at the 2020 Grammys: tragic or fine?

GRAMMY Awards Arrivals 2020

I wish I could style and manage Dua Lipa because I feel like I could do a much better job with her than whoever is on her team right now. I’m a Dua stan – I love her voice, I loved her look a few years ago, when she had her natural dark hair and, frankly, a little bit more weight. Over the past year, she’s gotten thinner and blonder and she’s dating Anwar Hadid. The whole thing is a mess. Dua wore this Alexander Wang two-piece dress to the 2020 Grammys and it was nice. But again, she could be doing so much better across the board. I feel like it’s partially about her team letting her down and partially about Dua not understanding her own brand as a pop star?

Bebe Rexha in custom Christian Cowan. I weirdly loved this. It was super-flattering, her boobs looked amazing (and so perky, I’m envious) and she also managed to look a bit conservative too, because this is just a weird take on a black suit. She was honestly one of my favorite looks of the night.

Tyler the Creator brought Big Bellhop Energy to the Grammys red carpet, then he changed and absolutely MURDERED the Grammys stage with his performance of “Earfquake” and “New Magic Wand.” Tyler was the best act of the night, without a doubt. After that, he won a Grammy for Best Rap Album, gave an absolutely lovely speech, then proceeded to take the Recording Academy to task for how they label music and the inherent racism of the Recording Academy. He said, in part: “I’m half and half on it. On the one side I am very grateful that what I made can be acknowledged in a world like this… but it sucks that whenever we, and I mean guys that look like me, do anything that’s genre-bending or anything, they always put it in a rap or urban category. And I don’t like that ‘urban’ word. It’s just a politically correct way to say the n-word, to me. So when I hear that, I’m just like, why can’t we just be in pop? So I felt like — half of me feels like the rap nomination was a backhanded compliment.”

    Dua Lipa looks like she’s dressed for my senior prom… in 2002. Lol.

  2. SJR says:

    At least she looks covered up and the dress is simple but I think, flattering to her.
    Half the celebs last night looked as if the were attending a costume party.
    Billy Porter is over the top, Adriana looked like a toilet brush in that hideous grey mess with layers and ruffles, Gwen hardly looks like herself anymore and her dress during performance was awful.
    Lizzo looked great in her white gown, her makeup and hair were good too.
    Lil Naz X was head to toe in neon pink, no one looks good in that color.
    Billie needs a new look from her neon green/black combo..10 years from now she will still be id’d only when in those colors.
    FKA whoever, holy cats! She always looks unwashed to me.

    Best news of the night? No Madonna showing her behind.
    Just my thoughts.

    Anwar … yikes. He’s got some Pete Davidson vibes going on.

  4. Katrine Troelsen says:

    Anwar needs some multivitamin, how can u be that rich and look SO SICK?

  5. ChillyWilly says:

    That Hadid kid looks like a Bond villain. His eyes are soulless AF.

  6. Kath says:

    I am not a fan at all of Dua’s look but I am 34. I think her look is very intentional as a tragic throwback of the 90′s/early 00′s and that’s what the kids are doing these days.

  7. Kaylove says:

    I dont have any real feelings about Dua’s dress but that styling. Oof.

  8. Sesame says:

    Agreed, it’s so weird bc Dua is soooooo talented and gorgeous and her stylists always puts her in these weird getups that make her look like she’s dressed like ginger spice circa 1996?!

    TYLER!!! I got to see him live a few months ago and he gives EVERYTHING on the stage. Amazing win but yeah the categories are…stupid

  10. clairej says:

    I feel the same about Dua. She doesn’t look so fresh and interesting these days. But that could be having Anwar on her arm. He is about as useful/interesting as Sofia Richie.

  11. Starkille says:

    So we’re just gonna give Tyler a pass for rapping about violently raping and murdering women in his early work?
