BN Style’s Top 8 Best Dressed Celebrities At The 2016 Grammys

Richard Akuson



Clearly all roads led to the 2016 Grammys that had celebrities dressed to the nines in dazzling and some of the most risqué ensembles of the 2016 awards season so far. While the world might have actually been interested in the music and awards, we at BN Style watched the red carpet procession with penetrating attention as we were enthralled by the celebrity fashion that was on full display.  And while a few stars brought it—A-list style, others clearly showed up looking like extras in a cirque du soleil performance.

For us though, it was all about positive energy and those celebrities whose style stars shone the brightest on the red carpet. See below, our Top 8 Best Dressed Celebrities at the 2016 Grammys 

8. Jiddena Jiddena is indeed a man of many colours as expressed in this bold choice of colour. The classic man looked rather pleasantly quaint with his three-piece suit and staff that hinted old-Hollywood glamour. We are all about how he was able to make such a bright colour work so well for a him.


7. Seraya — The Empire starlet could have literally stolen the shine from the show’s larger than life Cookie Lyon – in this lavender cut-out dress with a thigh high slit that could have given Jolie’s a run for its worth. The dress was accessorized with a sleek center parted bob, burgundy lip-stain and nail polish, silver arm cuff, ankle rings, silver clutch and that strappy heels that we don’t mind coveting.


6. Giuliana Rancic — Guiliana was the woman in gold at the grammys in a fiercely studded mirror- and grommet Jani & Khosla dress.  Gee looked every inch a style star with gold drop earrings, swooped back rock-chic hair and cuff bangles. She exuded confidence, control and ownership of her presence.

5. Big Sean — We have come to know Big Sean for his distressed slash homeless chic Kanye-esque style—which has been good, until we saw him on the Grammys red carpet and thought —damn! he’s ready to play with the big boys. Big Sean clearly has it locked down in the tux department as much as he does in the street style department. We particularly dig his crispy white blazer with the shiny satin lapel and unbuttoned vest which makes for a super cajsh ensemble.

4. Bella Hadid — This will probably go down in history as Bella Hadid’s sexiest look yet. The model (and sister to Gigi Hadid) wore an Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture piece with a deep plunging neckline, cut-outs, and a Jolie-esque leggy slit. We are totally team Bella for her pared back accessories and makeup which makes for an even more powerful style statement.

3. Alessandra Ambrosio — The super model had an unnamable pizzazz about her goth meet gypsie meet high fashion ‘rock chic’ ensemble.  The décolletage, cut-outs, choker, dark-dark eyes, full-on leg game, sleek center parted hair and bedazzled strappy heels seem like a whole lot to take in, but the Victoria Secret Angel effortless tied them down into this effortless edgy look.

2. Wiz Khalifa — Wizzy would have looked completely out of place if he had worn anything other than this swaggered version of a traditional tuxedo by Thom Browne . Wiz looked outstanding in his element, confidently embodying his many style quirks, without having to conform to the conventional way of dressing. Wizzy’s ensemble was definitely a couture meet streets affair. Wiz Khalif is second on our list for pushing the boundary of what dapper is and ultimately redefining the word.

  1. Ciara — It is near impossible to think of a celebrity that could have pulled this dress without so much as a hiccup and with so much elegance and grace as Ciara, well, save for Rihanna and J.Lo (ehnn, but they didn’t this time around). Here’s the thing, it is even much more impossible to look tasteful in an almost all revealing frock like this without looking remarkably tacky—but Ciara did, with a black strap sandals, nearly no make up, a loosely pulled back hair and a diamond stud earrings of course. Ciara is our best dressed celebrity at the 2016 Grammys because she literally stepped outside the box, then brought and completely slammed at it.

      It is a lie ooo. Vogue literally did a full article on Wiz Khalifa and shoerred him with many many praises. So, if vogue too agress with BN (which is the only media i bothered checking to conform this ur lie), who then are the yankee blogs?! Between, Ciara absolutely murdered it!!

    • kim

      February 18, 2016 at 11:36 am

      That’s a lie. International blogs ET and BET named Ciara as best dressed. Just say u don’t like it.

    But how did wiz khalifa make this list biko???

  8. Niyoola

    February 17, 2016 at 9:33 am

    Is this a best dressed list or a “Risque, but turned out good list”?

    Jidenna’s waist coat isn’t nice. The Blazer and Pants are nice though.
    Seraya looks very good (Only lady that sgould be on the list)
    Big Sean looks very nice. The chain/choker is distracting though. That gaze (on the bot cam also) ….. you can get it anytime boo
    Giuliana looks good, but not good enough to be on best dressed list
    Wiz Khalifa. really? you put Wiz on this list? The jacket is nice, no doubt; but those pants, the shoes ….. N please.
    ALl the other ladies are showing major skin. Scabdalous out fits, yes, best dressed ….. Hell NO!!!!!!

    Please leave style posts & reviews to Adesola, Jennifer and our familiar n Fav BN lovelies.

    Thank you

    Ciara on the best dressed list??? i think she should have just worn a bikini to the event cause this outfit is not working…

    Is this list for “best dressed” or “barely dressed”…case in point – Ciara. BN surely has a weird sense of style.

    Bellanaija, I disagree with some o. Wiz Khalifa that’s looking like a new mad man on your list of best dressed, Jidenna’s would have looked better without the waist coat.
    For Gee, you’re so right and I think Selena Gomez looked stunning that night and should be here instead of some people.
    And for Big Sean, there were more classy men on the red carpet that day na or is he your crush

    Terribly disappointed at this list to say but the least. Big Sean looked so casual. Even Justin Bieber was far better and he’s not here.

    But Ciara looks tacky. I love Serayah’s outfit

  14. Tosin

    February 17, 2016 at 11:55 am

    jide-Nna (ndi-Igbo no talk?)

    and the Seraya girl and her dress were one. Lord, Jesus.
    Guiliana and her dress weren’t really one, but amazing still.
    the next one he’s too fine abeg, let me go and work. okaayyy, so that’s who they call Big Sean. e suppose be Fine Sean now?
    skip the next two. style twins.
    Wiz Khalifa (to me) looks coohoool (emphasis on the exhale)
    and what’s her name her body is over perfect so whatever she can wear a pint sef.

    Dear BN,I do not agree with this list. Save for guilanna.

    How did we get here? best dressed goes to no clothing at all… like my friend would say “the Lord will have to apologise to Sodom and Gomorra if He spares this generation of ours”

    I’m not sure this Richard Akuson knows anything about fashion. What?!

      don’t mind the guy. he is very razz. I know people like him. they can brag about knowing fashion and entertainment but they know nothing. this post is vexing me. u can tell the guy has a very tacky sense of style. and his he has zero taste
      ciara was one of the worst dresses of the night. her dress looked like a bathing suit with a towel wrapped around her waist.

      runner up for worst dressed was Beyoncé (I’m sorry my queen)
      when she came out to present record of the year, I screamed in horror. that white snake skin dress is the devil. With those earrings. her makeup was too shiny. she looked tired.
      ellie Goulding was also a hot mess. very grandma.

    the writer knows nothing about fashion. bellanaija when and why did u hire this guy. how can bella hadid be amongst the best dressed

    the best dressed of the night was Taylor swift and no I am not a huge Taylor Swift fan but my god, she looked good. young hip and fresh. those anna wintour bangs she did made her look so much younger.

    the versace crop top and full skirt with the slit was just very grammy appropriate. the colour combination made her pop on the carpet.

    runner up was selena gomez. selena was serving body for days in that sequin gown.

    honorable mention. chrissy teigen.she slayed with her baby bump.
    also demi lovato and meghan tainor looked good. very sexy and strong. they both wore black

    adele’s red gown she wore to perform looked amazing

    tori kelly in that green gown also looked amazing.

    pls this writer doesnt know sh!t about fashion. gullianna rancic, are u kidding me. she looks supper heavy in that gown. and gullianna is a very thin woman.
    bellanaija pls this dude shouldn’t write about fashion again
