In an evening rendered epic thanks to the incredible performance of Beyoncé, who, with the usual class and energy, succeeded in combining her amazing talent with important symbolism (goddesses, maternity, femininity), the 59th Grammy Awards got underway. Together with Queen Bey, Adele was the other undisputed protagonist of the evening: she took five of the most important awards, but also unexpectedly broke off her tribute song to George Michael to begin singing it again but better (to a standing ovation), and gave a surprise speech during which the singer apologised to Beyoncé who, according to Adele, should have won the award for best album.
Beyoncé flaunted the first creations of Peter Dundas, who is finally designing under his own label; Adele wore three Givenchy outfits by Riccardo Tisci; Jennifer Lopez was as sensual as ever in Ralph & Russo; and Laura Pausini was austere in Valentino Haute Couture. Stylists and hairdressers favoured the classic loose hair of the red carpet: wavy and slightly wild for Rihanna, neat waves for Chrissy Teigen, worked curls for Beyoncé in a vision of divinity, very long and super straight for Jennifer Lopez and then also for Beyoncé when she took to the stage. On the side of originality, on the other hand, Lady Gaga flaunted fully on-trend pink-orange locks, while Katy Perry surprised with a messy platinum blonde bob.
