The 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet kicked off on Monday, March 27, from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, and the fashion only got bolder as the night went on. While that’s partly because VIPs tend to keep us guessing — arriving later in the night to build anticipation for their outfits — we also saw performances from the likes of Latto and Pink, the latter of whom was recognized as the evening’s icon. Naturally, this called for a few costume changes that were nothing short of impressive.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift — honored as industry innovator and ringing in at eight nominations — dressed in keeping with her Eras aesthetic in a plunging hooded Alexandre Vauthier catsuit covered in crystals. The 33-year-old star works with stylist Joseph Cassell Falconer on her wardrobe, frequently wearing brands such as David Koma, Zuhair Murad, and Oscar de la Renta. Her looks usually do not go without a glitzy embellishment or beaded embroideries, and this appearance that honored her career’s influence on global pop culture was no exception.
The Lenny Kravitz–hosted ceremony rounded out award season following the Oscars on March 12, where trends such as sheer elements, hip-high slits, the color yellow, and floor-sweeping trains took hold. A few of those edgier silhouettes aptly showed up at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, too, whether it was on stage or at the step and repeat before guests took their seats.
Ahead, review the designer credits for every look that made us do a double take, from dresses and suits to jewelry and shoes, then check out the red carpet beauty details.
