The 61st Annual Grammy Awards officially kicked off on Sunday night in Los Angeles’s Staples Center, beginning with a red carpet to remember. Hosted by Alicia Keys with performances by Cardi B, Shawn Mercedes, Ricky Martin and more, the night got off to a sartorially shocking start with music industry royalty storming the red carpet in an array of larger than life, colorful looks.
All weekend we spotted major trends on some of the newest Latinx talent on the carpet — ranging from bold shapes to endless glitz and shine. Here the best and boldest looks from the carpet this evening:

The Grammys carpet has begun!

Nominated in both the Pop Vocal Album and Pop Solo Performance categories, Camila set the precedent for major glam when she took to the red carpet in a custom pink gown by Armani Prive before changing to open the awards ceremony.
Despite some Internet fuss, there’s no denying J.Lo stole the carpet in a wide-brim hat lined with crystals and a floor-length Ralph and Russo dress. Her flawless ponytail (and A-Rod, rocking a multicolor suit jacket) were the perfect “accessories” to complete her look.
It took a village to escort the Queen herself, Belcalis, into the building. Her staggering 90s-reimagined gown took up space with bold shapes to match her vibrant persona. The five-time nominee arrived prepared to own the night.
The Best Pop Latin Album nominee boldly rocked her iconic rizos with a dazzling, tiered, floor-length gown by Nissa.
Lele Pons, who recently announced she would be dropping her second single “Bloqueo” this upcoming Friday went high and low in a short dress (with a train!) and thigh high boots. We give her an A for her risk-taking look.
While Ricky Martin nailed his casual suit look for the evening, nothing compared to his date’s super cool style. The cutie stealing his thunder: his 10-year-old son Matteo.
Nominated for Best Regional Mexican Music album for her debut solo album, Primero Soy Mexicano, the stunning 15-year-old owned the red carpet in a traditional gown while posing with her father, Pepe.
