The Times Up, So Spread Your Wings.
Within the midst of the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiatives that are both sparking conversations and encouraging people to take action on and off the red carpet, one couldn’t help but notices within a sea of white roses (a newly adopted symbol by the all encompassing human equality movements) that there was an underlining trend of spreading your peace. That’s right. There were bird feathers, angel silhouettes and of course - let’s not forget - the bold shouldered wings.
From the free spirit of Cardi B on the left, who wore an Ash Studio dress with Messika jewelry (plus that engagement rock) and Christian Louboutin shoes, to the performer Pink in a multi-feathered dress by Armani Privé, and Rachel Antonoff in Prada; the carpet was vibrant by the oversized proportions.
Seen on the left is a third of the country band, Midland, Mark Wystrach wearing a macaw bird inspired suit and matching cowboy hat. Mr. Shy Glizzy in the middle wore Dior Homme with a statement Angel wing piece. And on the left, Anabelle Acosta was also spotted in a Messika creation with a luxury side piece, and no I’m not talking about her date with TV star Shemar Moore (though he’s looking dapper, as well). Just take a gander at that feather adorned clutch with a wood handle and tell me you can’t see heaven in that entire velvet look.
Staying on theme with the Grammy’s red carpet, Lady Gaga gave an emotional rendition of two songs from her lastest album, Joanne, where the piano had a full spread of angel wings drooping onto the floor. Catch the live clip below:
