The Grammys red carpet is never a bore, and in 2018, that held as true as ever. Sunday evening's awards show, held at Madison Square Garden in New York City, was a moment for stars to make unexpected choices when it came to fashion, yes, but also on the hair and makeup front. In fact, the evening was full of memorable beauty looks. Some were impactful because they were zany (see: Cyndi Lauper's multicolored unicorn coif and Katie Holmes's costume-y flapper situation). And then there were the ones that captured our attention for being impressively innovative — like Lady Gaga's laced-up, corset hair — or for being just plain pretty, like Janelle Monáe's flash of sapphire under-eyeliner or Hailee Steinfeld's blue smoky eye.
In the gallery below, we've rounded up the stand-out looks from the evening. That is, the ones that brought us an immediate sense of delight, and not for their potential to inspire next October's Halloween costume. Click through to see 'em all.
