10 Women Who Didn’t Need Dresses At The Grammys

Pants are the red carpet trend actually worth getting behind.

The red carpet is not what is used to be. Credit this change to women, especially the ones who don't want to put their fingers in a mani cam, the ones who want to answer better questions, and the ones who want to wear pants. Perhaps following Lorde's lead with trousers plus a fancy sports bra, a deep squad of women forwent dresses at Sunday's Grammys. In tailored suits, cropped pants, and onesies, they looked great. As a woman who's never enjoyed wearing dresses, I'm glad to see this whole buffet of better formalwear options, and eager to see who'll sell the best suits this spring.
