Producer Clive Davis hosted his pre-Grammy gala Saturday in Beverly Hills, California.
Stars like Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Cardi B, and Sharon Stone attended in cool, bold outfits.
While sheer styles were still popular, some celebrities opted for patterns and bright colors.
Cardi B wore a patchwork gown that appeared to be made with pieces of leather and lace.
Another eye-catching piece of the rapper's outfit was her hair: InStyle reports that Cardi B debuted a mullet on the red carpet.
She paired the bustier dress with opera-length gloves in coordinating fabrics, as well as a gold choker with large rhinestones in the middle.
Lizzo was joined by her boyfriend Myke Wright on the red carpet, but she stood out in a flouncy minidress with feathers.
According to BuzzFeed, the pair made their red-carpet debut at an event for the singer's competition show "Lizzo's Watch Out for the Big Grrrls" in June 2022.
Lizzo's dress, which The Independent reports was designed by Alexander McQueen, featured black and blue feathers along the shoulders and hemline. She wore the look with black gloves, thigh-high black boots held up by a garter belt, and sparkling jewelry.
A shirtless Lil Nas X made a statement in a graphic purple suit.
The "Old Town Road" singer is known for his eye-catching red carpet looks, and his contour-pattern suit is no different.
The rest of his look was more subtle: a pair of black, platform boots and a diamond chain that spelled out his real name, Montero.
Sharon Stone donned a dramatic ruffled suit in bright pink.
The actress' bubblegum ensemble proved last year's hot pink trend isn't done yet. Layers of tulle in the same shade fell from Stone's hips and sleeves, nearly reaching the floor.
Like Lil Nas X, Stone wore a chunky diamond chain with her suit.
H.E.R.'s dazzling two-piece was enhanced with a matching bag.
The singer-songwriter wore a T-shirt and wide-leg pants made of sheer, embellished fabric in a metallic tone. Her signature sunglasses and flowing waves gave the look a personal touch.
Halle Bailey showed some skin in a sheer, netted gown with a plunging neckline.
The singer and "Little Mermaid" star mixed elegance with edge in the intricately patterned dress. Bailey's diamond chandelier earrings added even more glamour to the look, which included cutouts along her waist and shoulders.
Chloe Bailey served up old-Hollywood glamour in a black gown with different textures.
Like her sister, the singer played with texture in a chic black gown. Chloe's dress was highlighted by a front bustle and velvet bodice that matched her black gloves.
For jewelry, she went with dangling silver hoops.
Latto performed at the event in a blue corsetted catsuit and oversized fur jacket.
Photos from the gala show the rapper wearing the coat for part of her performance. She later revealed a mesh jumpsuit with blue crystals along her bust, hips, and legs.
Latto also paired her look with matching gloves, proving they were one of the must-have accessories of the night.
Offset put his twist on formalwear with a military-style jacket and red sunglasses.
The Migos rapper wore the coat, made with a red collar and gold buttons, with black trousers and patent leather loafers.
Ella Mai's minidress had a fun surprise in the back.
At first glance, the British singer's minidress appeared to be a classic little black dress. However, Mai turned around and revealed that the back was covered in a layer of tiny pink feathers and black beading.
Gayle King brought lots of color to the gala.
The author and CBS journalist hit the red carpet in a rainbow maxi dress in a varying stripe pattern. She upped the fun factor with a gold clutch and red, pointed-toe shoes.
Yung Miami rocked a white bodycon dress with voluminous tulle sleeves.
The rapper, who is one half of the duo City Girls, contrasted the simple maxi with frilly pink sleeves that spread far past the tips of her fingers. She added another colorful accent with a pair of bright pink sandals.
Wiz Khalifa also went shirtless on the red carpet, opting for a sequin suit.
The rapper's black suit featured sequins in a pinstripe pattern, giving the look some visual appeal. He chose western-style boots, opaque sunglasses, and a silver chain for accessories, adding in even more sparkle with a diamond belt buckle.
Nafessa Williams was cool and glamorous in a high-slit gown with lip details down the front.
Each cutout along the "Code Black" actress' dress was sealed with a kiss — a lip-print drawing coated in diamonds. In an unexpected style choice, Williams wore the gown with a black, netted hat and asymmetrical pearl earrings.
