Hands up if you’re still reeling from the 2017 Grammy Awards—not to mention, that insanely regal Beyoncé performance. It was music’s biggest night, with all of the winning hair and makeup moments to drive the point home. Whether the stars were honoring another artist, putting on a performance, or being honored themselves, each of the beauty looks that lined the red carpet are platinum hits in and of themselves. Scroll down to see the 15 best looks of the night, including J. Lo, Lady Gaga, Carrie Underwood, and many, many more.
Music’s biggest night regularly fuels the biggest fashion risks of awards season, and the 2017 Grammy Awards were no exception. The stars marked the occasion by showing off plenty of skin on the carpet once again, from midriff-baring tops to playful cutouts, deep necklines and higher-than-thou slits.
From some serious underboob (Gaga we’re talking to you) to a more subdued but still sexy triangular cutout situation (hello, Carrie Underwood), we taking a look at some of the barest gowns of the night. Scroll below to see which celebs bore all at the Grammys.
If ever there were an awards show where it was most thematic to shimmer like a disco ball, the Grammy Awards would certainly be that occasion. And tonight, stars hit the carpet with glitter in tact, sporting a range of metallic hues that lit up the night. Heidi Klum got leggy in a micro-mini silver Philipp Plein frock, while Katy Perry was radiant in a metallic Tom Ford number with a feathered bottom, referring to herself as a martini. Meanwhile, no one could ignore CeeLo Green’s golden trophy-esque costume.
Below, see all the stars who glimmered in sequins galore and more at this year’s show.
“I’d like them to find someone else to play her,” she was quoted as saying. “In fact I know the very person.”
“Everyone in The Archers family is very sad today,” said Archers editor Huw Kennair-Jones. “Sara was a gifted actress with a unique voice.
“Even when she was navigating the tribulations of Caroline Sterling’s love life, Sara’s deft wit and clever characterisation meant Caroline was never solely defined by her relationships but always as a fully rounded, intriguing woman of substance.
“We will all miss her both professionally and personally.”
Coward made her first appearance in The Archers in 1977 and her last in September 2016.
Her character was the owner of the Grey Gables Hotel and Health Club but was better known for her string of unsuccessful relationships.
Annette Badland, who stars in The Archers as Hazel Woolley, tweeted: “Sara was such pleasure to be with. RIP loving, kind, intelligent, funny lady.”
Keri Davies, writer and producer on the programme, said: “Caroline was my first #TheArchers crush, and when I came to work on the programme, Sara Coward was an absolute delight.
Susie Riddell, who plays Tracy Horrobin, posted: “So sad to learn of Sara’s death. A lovely, graceful and witty woman.”
Coward spent the last months of her life trying to leave the world “a kinder place” and launched a social media campaign urging people to smile at each other more.
She started Sm:)e from a hospice in Warwickshire and on social media wrote: “Make someone feel good today just by being kind. This can be as easy as simply sm:)ing at people, or doing something more to help them in some way. And finding out how good you feel as a result.”
Kourtney Kardashian has shown us time and again that her home decor game is top-notch. She knows how to put together anything from a dramatic living room to a pink paradise bedroom for her daughter, Penelope, proving that kids’ rooms can be just as chic as any other space in the house–and that’s definitely the case with her youngest son Reign’s room too.
The cozy neutral space, which she worked on with interior decorator Martyn Lawrence Bullard, mixes mature accents like damask curtains and a statement wall, with whimsical child-friendly finds like stuffed animals and plush furnishings. And lots of items are sentimental hand-me-downs from big brother Mason, like a vintage airplane and fur rug. Kardashian also put in both a crib and a daybed, so that she can take a load off as well. “I can sleep there when Reign’s sick or needs me,” she says. “I slept in his room the first three months of his life (most nights with Mason and Penelope too), so a full-size daybed is amazing.”

Once you hit your 30s, there’s a good chance you’ll still occasionally battle the same breakouts you’ve had since your teen years at the same time you’re trying to stave off the fine lines that come with age. But you don’t have to choose between a facial cleanser that only fights dull, aging skin or clears up zits. Plenty of products fight both–you just need to know what to look for.
The trick is to identify a cleanser that offers a deep clean without over-drying the skin, which naturally produces less oil with age, says Jessica Wu, MD, a dermatologist in Los Angeles. “Adult or hormonal acne is different than teen acne–people are often dry on the top layer of skin, and broken out underneath that layer,” Dr. Wu says. “So Proactiv or Clean & Clear won’t work as well once you hit your 30s.”

But what were the other big (and small) themes from the night? Here’s a rundown.
Rihanna came to party
She lost all eight of the awards she was nominated for, but this picture of Rihanna with a hip flask tells us she didn’t care.
James Corden nailed it
British star James Corden took over as Grammys host from rapper LL Cool J, and the difference couldn’t have been more apparent.
While LL was always affable, he didn’t do much beyond delivering his links.
James, in contrast, began the night by pretending to fall down a staircase (“this is a disaster!”) before launching into a rap about the gathered celebrities:
“This room is insane, It’s filled with ‘Oh, Gods!’ / Some of the faces like Madame Tussauds.
“Beyonce performing, the queen is here, dummy! / Slay the whole stage with twins in her tummy.”
Later on, he performed an impromptu carpool karaoke (from inside a cardboard cut-out) with Neil Diamond, Jennifer Lopez and Jason Derulo singing a version of Sweet Caroline.
And he lived every child’s worst nightmare when he found dad Malcolm canoodling with model Heidi Klum in the audience.
“Dad, what are you doing with Heidi Klum?” he exclaimed.
“Well, your mom and I have an understanding and I used my free pass tonight,” replied Corden Senior.
‘President Agent Orange’
Politics was always expected to play a role in the ceremony, but it wasn’t until Busta Rhymes took to the stage that things got serious.
“I’m not feeling the political climate right now,” he growled. “I just want to thank President Agent Orange for perpetuating all of the evil that you’ve been perpetuating throughout the United States.
“I just want to thank President Agent Orange for your unsuccessful attempt at the Muslim ban. We’ve come together. We, the people.”
He then launched into We The People – a collaboration with A Tribe Called Quest that rejects the politics of division.
Surrounded by dancers in headscarves, the musicians brought their thunderous performance to a close with a chant of “resist, resist, resist”.
It wasn’t the only political moment in the ceremony, but it was the most incendiary.
Earlier Katy Perry, an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter, danced in a white pant suit and wore a “persist” arm band.
Presumably this alluded to Elizabeth Warren’s persistence in Congress this week, where she attempted to read a 30-year-old letter by Martin Luther King Jr’s widow, criticising President Trump’s nominee for attorney general.
The president of the Recording Academy, Neil Portnow, also called on the President not to cut arts funding, saying Americans are “constantly reminded about the things that divide us”.
“What we need so desperately are more reminders of all that binds us together,” he continued.
US singer Joy Villa, however, bucked the trend by whipping off a white gown to reveal a pro-Trump dress.
It’s a good thing Twenty One Pilots didn’t go commando
Rock band Twenty One Pilots went trouser-less for their first ever acceptance speech.
After winning best group performance for their hit song Stressed Out, singer Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun stood up, dropped their trousers and walked to the podium in their underwear.
“This story, it starts in Columbus, Ohio, it was a few years ago and it was before Josh and I were able to make money playing music,” explained Tyler.
“I called him up and I said, ‘Hey Josh, want to come over to my rental house and watch the Grammys?’ As we were watching, we noticed every single one of us was in our underwear.
“Seriously, Josh said to me… he turned to me and he said, ‘If we ever go to the Grammys, if we ever win a Grammy, we should receive it just like this.'”
Jay Z was on daddy duty
While a heavily pregnant Beyonce was on stage killing it in an epic, nine-minute performance celebrating motherhood, Jay Z was on the front row looking after their five-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
The father-daughter duo were beaming with pride throughout and gave Queen Bey a standing ovation.
Jay Z’s next album – For God’s Sake Will You Go to Sleep, Game of Thrones Starts in Five Minutes* – is due for release in October.
(* not a real album.)
The tributes were perfectly judged
Adele might have needed a do-over on her tribute to George Michael, but her sombre rendition of Fastlove (arranged by Batman composer Hans Zimmer, we understand) was a mournful masterpiece.
Bruno Mars went the other direction, vamping up a cover of Prince’s Let’s Go Crazy to such an extent he seemed possessed by the spirit of the Minneapolis marvel.
And The Time – Prince’s arch-rivals in Purple Rain – showed us how songs the star cast off, such as their hit Jungle Love, could bring a moderately-sized house down.
Those weren’t the only stars we lost in 2016 of course, and the memorial montage would have brought a lump to any music fan’s throat.
If that wasn’t enough, John Legend and Cynthia Erivo’s tender cover of The Beach Boys’ God Only Knows -which soundtracked the segment – would have finished you off.
David Bowie finally got some recognition
It’s hard to believe it, but in his lifetime David Bowie only won two Grammys: best music video in 1985 for Jazzin’ For Blue Jean and a lifetime achievement award in 2006.
That historical anomaly was corrected last night when the star won all five of the categories he was nominated for, including best alternative album for Blackstar and best rock song for its title track.
Recording engineer Kevin Killen, who worked with Bowie on the album, expressed his relief backstage.
“It’s kind of startling it’s taken that long for an artist who’s been so magnificent throughout his whole career,” he said.
Musician Donny McCaslin, who played on Blackstar, said it was “unfortunate” Bowie had not been nominated for the main prize, album of the year.
“Speaking artistically, it was clear he should have been nominated in one if not more of the major categories,” he said.
These sweet honey products are packed with enzymes that help keep pores clean of dirt and oil.
The sweet stuff has been used in beauty routines since ancient times, and for good reason. “Anyone will benefit from implementing honey into their routine because of its antibacterial and moisturizing properties,” explains Whitney Bowe, MD, a celebrity dermatologist in New York City.
