  • J-Lo’s giant hat didn’t go without comment as it obscured her view and couldn’t have been much fun for whoever was sitting behind her

The celebrities did their best to make sure all eyes were on them as they walked the red carpet at the Grammys, held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday. 

And there were some sensational haute couture looks on the night, the likes of Cardi B, Katy Perry and J-Lo set the internet alight with their VERY quirky ensembles. 

Katy Perry, 34, was mocked for her oversized pink Balmain gown, which was compared to a tampon, a giant candyfloss, a toilet-roller smuggler and a paint-roller.

Thanks for the MEME-ories! Katy Perry’s giant pink Balmain gown from Sunday night’s Grammys has been compared to candyfloss as she sent the internet wild with her quirky ensemble

Go with the flow: She was also compared to a Tampax compak and artfully added to this artwork

Barbie girl: Her dress was good enough to eat and others compared it to a layered birthday cake

That’s one for the bathroom: Katy was jokingly asked if she was smuggling toilet paper 


It’s a hit: One fan felt that the shape of the skirted section made for the perfect piñata and she was also compared to a kebab

And her performance on the night didn’t go down too well – paying tribute to Dolly Parton, many were confused as to why Katy was included in the mix of country stars who joined her on stage to celebrate her 50-year career.

And they were less than impressed with her rendition of Here You Come Again. 

Viewers wrote: ‘I’ve seen war. I’ve seen violence. But I’ve never witnessed anything close to the barbaric murder Katy Perry just committed on @DollyParton,’ one brutal review read.

‘@katyperry should be publically flogged for the heinous crimes she committed against the ICONIC @DollyParton during the #GrammyAwards2019 tonight,’ one commenter wrote.

‘Katy Perry needs to be banned from any further @DollyParton tributes. #GrammyAwards,’ another added.  

DIY: This hilarious and very clever meme saw Katy compared to a paint roller

Good enough to eat: The skirt of her gown was compared to a stack of cake cases 

Knit a bad one: One dolly appeared to have started the trend way before Katy

The singer is known for her love of experimental fashion and this strapless design in Barbie pink was no exception, with its oversized skirt section. 

Katy may well have been feeling a bit peckish when she picked out her frock for the evening, because she ended up choosing a design that looked almost identical to a cupcake. 

The saccharine sweet style featured layer upon layer of tulle – not unlike a mille feuille – while the top half looked as though it had been attacked with some silver spray paint. 

Clean up your act: Katy’s dress was also superimposed onto a car wash

Strike it lucky: Who needs ten-pin bowling when you’ve got Katy around?

Snack attack: Her expensive designer gown was also compared to sweet treat Snoballs

    Cardi B, 26, wore a vintage black and pink Thierry Mugler couture number from the 1995 autumn/winter collection.

    It had a giant fan-like design, which was compared to Botticelli’s famous Birth of Venus painting, as well as Ursula, the sea witch in The Little Mermaid.

    She wore a golden beaded headdress which was likened to a pyramid of Ferraro Rocher chocolates, while the  frills on her dress were compared to coffee filters. 

    This little teapot: Cardi B’s Thierry Mugler 1995 couture dress was compared to Botticelli’s Birth Of Venus and The Little Mermaid’s Ursula the sea witch as a host of memes were created on her Grammys look on Sunday night 

    Looks familiar: The dress’s fan-like design was a dead ringer for Botticelli’s famous Birth Of Venus painting

    Poor unfortunate soul: Cardi was compared to The Little Mermaid villain, Ursula the sea witch

    The ambassador called: Her beaded headdress was also compared to a pyramid of Ferraro Rocher chocolates 

    Something’s brewing: That awkward moment when you are compared to a coffee filter 

    Cardi was not the only member of her family to fall at the fashion hurdle however. Her sister, Hennessy Carolina, also made an appearance on the worst-dressed list, thanks to her rather bizarre orange jacket that featured very large billowing sleeves – and an incredibly high hemline. 

    In fact, the jacket looked as though most of the material had gone to the sleeves, leaving little to add any length to the dress – and leaving Hennessy looking as though perhaps she had forgotten to put on a pair of matching pants before heading to the awards show.   

    Due to the bright nature of the colour of her dress, one Twitter user compared her to a cartoon elephant. 


    Woah: Cardi B’s sister Hennessy Carolina wore a very risque – and rather abrasive – orange tuxedo jacket with billowing puff sleeves that somewhat dwarfed her frame, while the incredibly high hemline made it look like she’d forgotten pants

    Nice trunk: She was compared to a cartoon elephant due to the bright colour of her dress’s design

    The Grammys always play host to some of award season’s most extravagant and ridiculous fashions, but this year may well have taken the cake as far as baffling sartorial choices. 

    But it was Jennifer Lopez who was perhaps the most surprising star to make an appearance on the worst dressed list; the 49-year-old singer and actress wore a pale blue sleeveless gown with an inexplicably large cowboy-style hat that almost completely covered her face, and left her looking like a character out of an old Western. 

    It led to her being compared to singer Pharrell Williams, who loves to wear a giant hat and the size of the headgear was also mocked as it appeared to obscure her vision somewhat.  

    That’s some serious shade: J-Lo’s enormous hat didn’t escape the jokes on the night 

    Is she Pha-rrell? Her hat, which obscured her vision somewhat was compared to her fellow musician

      Quirky: Jennifer Lopez led the list of worst-dressed stars at the 2019 Grammy Awards wearing a pale blue sleeveless dress with an incredibly large cowboy-style hat that completely covered her face and distracted from every other aspect of the look

      From the inexplicably large shoulders on Janelle Monae’s unique dress to the Monsters Inc-esque ensemble worn by rapper Tierra Whack, there was no shortage of bizarre outfits on the red carpet at the glittering event.

      Kylie Jenner is another celebrity to make a rather out-of-the-ordinary style slip-up, wearing a peculiar pink jumpsuit that featured a criss-cross bodice and built-in gloves. 

      The outfit was not unlike a straight jacket, giving the impression that her arms were somehow caught up in the design. 

      Funky: Kylie Jenner’s outfit was rather confusing, with the star wearing what appeared to be a jumpsuit that also featured large gloves to cover her hands

      Fur real? Kylie was compared to a fluffy pink gorilla in her pastel coloured suit


      Hand holding: The 21-year-old didn’t let the odd gloves stop her from holding hands with her beau Travis Scott

        However, the reality star-turned beauty mogul didn’t let that stop her from hugging and kissing her beau Travis Scott, who was performing at the event, and who put on a very loved-up display with his partner on the red carpet. 

        The 21-year-old was also showing off a very plump pout, having perhaps returned to her much-loved fillers after taking a short break in order to model a more natural lip look.   


        Trend? Janelle Monae also wore a very large hat with her outfit – a dress that had confusingly large shoulders that hovered above her body as she walked the carpet

        Up, up, and away! Saint Heart wore a butterfly-colored gown that featured actual wings, which she proudly showed off while posing on the red carpet and pulling them up for the photographers to see 

        Grrr… argh… Rapper Tierra Whack resembled a character from Monsters Inc in her multicolored furry coat, which she wore with an equally garish painted dress

        Something different: Tayla Parx, 25, chose a dress that looked like it had been made from scraps of leftover fabric. She added a pair of colorful Converse to the look to finish it off

        The dress – which looked like something out of a Disney cartoon – featured a bizarre shell-like frill around the waist that fanned up around her body and gave the impression that she was playing the part of The Little Mermaid, an image that was hammered home by the addition of several pearl embellishments, including one particularly large pile on top of her head. 

        Combined with the fish scale-esque finish on the bodice of the dress, it really did make for a rather Under the Sea-style look – and a less-than-sizzling red carpet appearance.  


        Bad in beige: Both Mimi Saballa (left) and Sibley Scoles (right) opted for sheer nude ensembles that left their underwear on full display and were incredibly unflattering on their figures

         Train terror: Lele Pons also went for a nude number, however the over-the-top aspects of her look – including a lengthy train and bedazzled thigh-high boots – looked incredibly tacky, and made her stand out for all the wrong reasons

        Retro: Ashanti’s dress was not unlike something that you might find at a costume store, or perhaps in the comforter section of Bed Bath and Beyond

        Team effort: The members of a cappella group Pentatonix seemed to have coordinated their outfits, but unfortunately they all ended up looking equally terrible thanks to the bizarre mishmash of ensembles

        Michaels called… Du Yen, seen posing with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, wore an incredibly odd outfit that could well have been made in a craft room at home using supplies from an art supply store 


        Another low note: Blanca Blanco failed to wow in her floral-embellished dress, which featured a very sheer skirt, an awkwardly-high slit, and a very tacky flower feature on the bodice 

        Woah: Toni Braxton left a lot on show in her sheer purple glittery dress, giving photographers a full view of her nude underwear, as well as her stomach and legs

        Peculiar: Singer St. Vincent almost looked as though she had been swallowed alive by her enormous dress, which featured a huge train – and yet an incredibly high hemline

        OTT: CeeLo Green and his partner Shani James made quite the impression in their bedazzled outfits – with Shani going the extra mile and adding the same embellishments on her lips
