Pink was the color du jour at the 2022 Grammys. Celebs hit the red carpet wearing various shades of the rosy hue, from light pink to bright fuchsia.
Saweetie wore a Valentino spring 2022 three-piece ensemble consisting of a bow-adorned bralette, opera-length gloves, and a full skirt. Billy Porter opted for a pink sheer ruffled shirt with a long train and matching trousers from the same collection, telling E!’s Laverne Cox: “The color of the season, I hear, is fuchsia, and Valentino sent this over for me to wear from the runway.”
St. Vincent wore a stunning pink sequined Gucci gown with voluminous ruffles, while Tinashe opted for a pink latex dress by GCDS. Travis Barker layered a pink Givenchy blazer over black separates, the darker hue matching his fiancé Kourtney Kardashian’s Et Ochs dress. Justin Bieber wore a fuchsia beanie with his oversized Balenciaga suit, and host Trevor Noah opted for a baby-pink jacket by Gucci.
The hot-pink shade was a major trend on spring 2022 runways, and it carried into the fall season as well, showing up at Valentino’s aforementioned all-pink show.
According to Cat Quinn, MAC Cosmetics’ executive director of global trends, there’s a psychological reason behind the sudden proliferation of pink. The shade, which psychiatrists call “Drunk Tank Pink,” is tied to dopamine dressing – it has a calming effect, and people are drawn to that feeling after the uncertainty of the last two years.
Ahead, take a look at all the celebrities who wore the vibrant shade to the 2022 Grammys.
