1. Kacey Musgraves 2021
Kacey Musgraves is never one to rock a subtle look on the red carpet, and her 2021 ensemble didn't disappoint. With red leather statement gloves and a very large, very feathery purple headpiece. (Can we even call it a hat?) We have a feeling whoever sat behind her at the show promptly asked her to remove it. 

The singer's ensemble was actually fresh off the Valentino runway. It debuted at Milan Fashion Week earlier this year and Musgraves really went for it by adding the gloves and heels. 

She also changed into a white, ethereal dress while she performed her song "Star-Crossed" during the show. She was surrounded by candles and flaming neon hearts for the song and it was quite an emotional spectacle.
