As host of the 61st annual Grammys, a cooly confident Alicia Keys made several wardrobe changes, including jumpsuits in red, black and green.

Cardi B.

Cardi B. made history, becoming the first solo woman to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album. Part old Hollywood glamour and part futuristic fashionista, the Bronx rapper didn’t disappoint with her grand entrance in a vintage Thierry Mugler Couture outfit (from the 1995 collection) featuring a sheer bodysuit and black skirt that opens into a structural shell-like creation, accented by pearls around her waist, neck and beehive do.

Tracee Ellis Ross

Like her mom, Diana “The Boss” Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross is a fashion leader — not a follower. And at the Grammys she commanded the spotlight in a bright green Ralph & Russo wide-leg suit with embroidered serpent belt.

Jada Pinkett Smith

Isn’t she lovely? Jada Pinkett Smith stuns in a V-neck Roberto Cavalli Couture embroidered gown with feathery skirt and elaborate train.
