Grammys 2019 Red Carpet Photos: All The Pics You Need To See From This Year’s Event

The A-l.

With awards season now in full swing, it’s time for stars from the music world to start getting in on the act, with the celebrities swarming to Los Angeles on Sunday night, for this year’s Grammys.

As ever, it was a star-studded affair, with the biggest names in the industry all arriving at the Staples Centre, but before the ceremony itself, there was the not-so-small matter of the red carpet.

Loads of our faves posed up a storm for the photographers on their way into the event, including the host for the evening, Alicia Keys, who made sure to make an impression as she led the charge in her bright red gown.

Elsewhere, chart-topping British singer and Best New Artist contender Dua Lipa was also snapped on the red carpet, alongside Album Of The Year Janelle Monáe, dressed as elaborately as we’ve come to expect from her, and Cardi B, who took up plenty of space in her show-stopping outfit, to match her larger-than-life personality.

But it wasn’t just the women who caught our attention on the red carpet.

Two-time nominee Shawn Mendes kept it classic in a navy suit, while producer Mark Ronson, who was recognised for his work on the A Star Is Born soundtrack as well as his work with Sin City, took a monochrome approach in his black-and-white ensemble.

However, not all of the nominees recognised at this year’s Grammys put in an appearance, Ariana Grande, who had a much-publicised row after a row with awards show organisers, ultimately deciding to give it a miss (though she did have a red carpet moment of her own just sitting around the house).
