The Grammy Award red carpet was sizzling hot as the great and the good of the music world turned the glamour notch up to eleven... And then broke it off.


Beyoncé may have become the most decorated artist in the history of the Grammy Awards and Harry Styles may be celebrating taking home the most coveted prize of best album of the year, but we all know there's so much more mileage to be made from being seen stepping out in the right, or perhaps, wrong outfit. 

Social media will ensure the most outrageous, glamourous or just plain mad fashion creation will be gawped and googled around the world and survive way after even the longest stretch limo has been cleaned and prepared for carrying another car full of celebrities and their entourages. 

Euronews Culture loves fashion, fast or slow, so here's our brief selection of some who got it right on the night.
