Very mature and feminine like for her,” said Holly Katz, stylist and host of the Fashion Crimes podcast. “A similar Pressiat corset dress was worn by Halsey which had the same vibe. It’s a trend for long and skinny, but it will still be a classic dress style for decades to come.
Katz wasn’t a fan of Eilish’s look.
“As for ‘outdated’ trends, let’s all hope Billie Eilish doesn’t sink her draped dress trend. We would have too many fashion blobs on the streets.

The seven members of the BTS sensation, meanwhile, wore custom Louis Vuitton suits with sneakers in a range of colors from bright white to muted blue.

Lady Gaga topped the fashion list for Katz.

Leon Bridges nodded to his native Texas in a cream tuxedo look complete with embroidery and a touch of blue beanies.
“I just like to look good, you know,” he told the AP.
Among Evans’ early stars was something on the other end of that spectrum, Cory Henry in a double-breasted suit and turtleneck combo.
“Rich, quirky colors like purple can be tricky when it comes to tailoring, but it nails the modernized ’70s vibe,” he said.
The evening’s host, Trevor Noah, played Gucci both on the red carpet and on stage, Evans said. Among Noah’s fashion changes was a mauve double-breasted tuxedo with black trousers and navy jacquard satin, also double-breasted.
“He showed us all the fashion house can do with the best of them, a fact we would all do well to remember,” he said. “And kudos to the guys who freaked out in their own way. The Salehe Bembury Crocs of Questlove particularly stood out.
Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, the Best Motion Picture Musical Grammy winner for “Summer of Soul,” also rocked something else: a Mikimoto x Commes des Garçons pearl necklace with silver spikes that retails for $6,800.
Evans called white men’s suits a “cool micro-trend for the evening,” notably on Black Coffee and Esona Maphumulo, both at Amiri. Flared pants aren’t exactly the norm, but “it seems like their influence can’t be ignored,” he said.
“We’ve seen them on BTS, Giveon, Walshy Fire, not to mention Lil Nas X. Maybe I’m tuned into the 70s vibe considering the white suits and the double-breasted suit combo and turtleneck, but it really seems like the influence of the era has some resistance,” Evans added.
That said, the music industry’s continued love affair with the slim fit, especially when it comes to pants, can’t be ignored, he said.
“Jack Antonoff, Jared Leto, John Legend, Diplo. All adopted slimmer pants,” Evans said. “Combine that with Justin Bieber’s big, big, BIG suit and you’ve got a pretty decent case study for the idea that we’re really, really in a go-anywhere era when it comes to menswear, the less when we talk about how you cover your legs.
