Of course, the most important part of the Grammys is to honor the musicians who have created beautiful works of art through their songs and albums, but the gorgeous fashion and style have got to be the next best thing. 

This year's awards ceremony was far more emotional than anyone intended, as everyone in the room mourned the shocking loss of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna earlier that day. The celebrities and artists came together to grieve the truly heartbreaking tragedy and tried to celebrate the past year's accomplishments in music. 

Like at most awards shows, the red carpet was a dazzling ceremony and had some standout looks for the evening. These nine are the absolute best of the night. 

Ariana Grande wore two massive ball gowns that made her look like Cinderella. 

Grande was nominated for the highest honor of the night, Record of the Year, but lost to Billie Eilish. The pop star shone on the red carpet and from her seat in the Staples Center where her ball gown billowed out from her chair. As if one over-the-top look wasn't enough, Grande had a second gray dress that was just as magnificent as the first.

Billy Porter's meme-worthy hat was downright extraordinary.

The awards' show icon, Porter had on a sparkling teal suit with diamond embellishments and a huge wide brim hat with a diamond curtain shielding his face that opened on its own. The outlandish accessory inspired a few hilarious memes. Nobody knows how to rock a red carpet quite like this style god. 

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen were red carpet royalty.

Teigen was a vision in her vibrant orange gown with a plunging neckline and leg slit. Meanwhile, Legend looked like her prince charming in an asymmetrical suit jacket that almost looked like a cape. Legend took home his eleventh Grammy win that night. 

Lil Nas X is staying on brand with his campy cowboy vibes and stood out in hot pink.

The country rapper was not hiding on the red carpet this year. The 20-year-old wore one of the brightest colors on the carpet in a monochromatic hot pink suit with matching cowboy hat and gold-tipped boots, while posing like a champ. He sang his number one song "Old Town Road" with Billy Ray Cyrus and Nas at the show. 

Jameela Jamil looked so punk in her royal blue gown with a sheer stripe in the skirt. 

Jamil accessorized this ball gown impeccably, wearing punk black boots. Jamil accompanied her boyfriend James Blake, an English songwriter, who lost his Grammy nomination to Vampire Weekend for Best Alternative Music Album. The couple joked that they were sore losers, but in reality, they were just thrilled to have been acknowledged and looked amazing being there. 

Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell were two of the biggest winners of the night.

Eilish and her brother took home four of the five biggest awards for the evening, including Record of the Year. Not only was her music recognized that night, but her always avant-garde style was, too. Looking exactly like herself, Eilish wore an oversize suit and face mask that matched her neon green roots. 

FKA Twigs looked like a chic vampire wearing an Ed Marler gown.

This goth-chic gown fit the electronic pop artist well, and her vibe was totally dark and mysterious. She styled her look with bright red hair and simple strappy shoes. The musician was nominated for her music video for the song "Cellophane."

The Jonas Brothers and their wives were some of the most stunning couples in attendance. 

Each Jonas Brother posed with their respective wives Sophie Turner, Priyanka Chopra, and Danielle Jonas, who were all wearing stunning gowns. Chopra had on a plunging gown that was reminiscent of J.Lo's iconic Versace number, Turner looked adorable in a black miniskirt and embellished top, and Danielle was radiant in her strapless silver dress. Of course, the brothers looked sharp too and wore custom suits. 

Lizzo might have been our favorite of the night.

Lizzo always turns it all the way up for red carpet style, and this awards show was no different. With eight Grammy nominations, Lizzo was ready for the big night. She ended up taking home the award for Best Pop Solo Performance and sang a touching rendition of "Cuz I Love You" in honor of the late Kobe Bryant.
