The Grammy’s Red Carpet Beauty Trends

2013 Grammy's Hits
See all the red carpet's best-dressed stars.
Musicians were warned about showing too much skin, and for the most part, the stars seemed to stick to the code. Even Rihanna’s Azzedine Alaia gown was relatively subdued despite its sheer detailing.

The skin that we did see, however, was absolutely flawless. Jennifer Lopez’ complexion couldn’t have been more gorgeous. Fortunately she wore her hair pulled back tight into a severe topknot so we got the full view.

Aside from J. Lo and Taylor Swift, who wore a braided updo at the beginning of the night, most of the Grammy’s guests wore their hair down. Was there a shortage of hair pins in LA this weekend? Or maybe it was the edgy vibe at the show. A structured updo seems more appropriate for the Oscars, while loose hair is better suited for jamming out to Bruno Mars and Sting.

If they spent less time on their hair, celebs lingered a bit longer in the manicure chair. Nail art was huge—Carly Rae Jepsen and Janelle Monae both had bejeweled digits.

But not all stars went all out with their nails. Swift admitted that she did her own nails just moments before heading to the red carpet, but we’ll give her a pass considering she opened the show and probably had bigger things on her mind.

Read on for the rest of the night’s beauty trends, including bold eyeshadow and a striking lip shade.
