We love a red carpet—don't get us wrong. But this year, we were so anxious to see Beyonce that some of the looks went right over our heads as we craned our necks, eagerly looking for Queen B. Still, some of the styles managed to catch our attention—let's just put it that way—and it wasn't because of who was wearing them.
Two rising musicians had us buzzing early on with their insanely, um, unique ensembles. And we're not just talking about some strategically placed cut-outs. (We're looking at you, Kris Jenner.)
First up, Joy Villa—a singer/songwriter/actress/someone we'd not heard of—wore a dress that made her political opinions clear as day. (No shame in it!) At first glance, the dress looked kind of abstract and queenly—almost like something Snow White's stepmother would wear while hunting.
But when she took off the cape, the ensemble's message—and, um, fit—became clear. "Make America Great Again," the dress proclaims, in bright, glittering letters.
Then, there was an artist named Girl Crush. (We Googled her name to find out more, but could only find links to Little Big Town's song of the same name.) Do you like gumballs? Then you'll love this.
The musician's dress looked like she'd jumped into a playground ball wearing a pink mermaid top and a lot of glue. And you know what? We love it! Both girls got our tongues wagging, so good for them.
