The 2015 Grammy Awards proved to be an exciting night for red carpet footwear, with celebrities opting for more daring choices than previous conservative awards shows like the Golden Globes and SAGs.
The red carpet was filled with music heavyweights at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, with celebrities in attendance like Madonna, Pharrell Williams, Arianna Grande, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith (to name a few). And as predicted by FN earlier this week, the night didn’t disappoint with its style offering.
Madonna turned heads in her head-to-toe custom Givenchy ensemble, which featured thigh-high lace-up leather boots from the label’s spring ’15 runway show. The look was quite outlandish to the normal eye, but proved to be both fun and theatrical, which the night should be.
Embellishment appeared to be a trend for the night. Katy Perry wore fun Sophia Webster tri-stap sandals, which featured embellished stack-bead heels. Lady Gaga also wore the Stuart Weitzman Nudist style, encrusted with crystals.
Gwen Stefani dazzled in embellished Christian Louboutin pumps, while both Nicki Minaj and Swift chose Giuseppe Zanotti.
The men in attendance also wore a number of stylish shoes. Nick Jonas stuck to white sneakers, a favorite style of his, choosing a laceless high-top style. Pharrell chose Adidas, often his brand of choice.
Last year’s awards featured artists like Lorde, Macklemore, Beyoncé, Jay Z and Rita Ora putting their best feet forward.
