Shania Twain is known for her iconic fashion and her 2023 GRAMMYs look will certainly go down in history as one of her most unique red carpet looks to date.
Twain, 57, who is set to present the award for Best Country Album during the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards, arrived to “Music’s Biggest Night” sporting a vibrant red wig, a white and black polka dot sequin pantsuit and matching top hat.
While on the red carpet, Twain revealed that her GRAMMYs look was designed by Harris Reed, a 26-year-old British-American fashion designer, who works closely with Harry Styles.
“I just fell in love with the fun of all of this,” the five-time GRAMMY winner shared while chatting with The Recording Academy, before admitting that being a part of the show is “an opportunity to wear fun clothes. I love it!”
She also posed for photos on the red carpet with TikTok star Chris Olsen, Dylan Mulvaney as well as country singer and actress, Rita Wilson.
The country legend was thrilled to attend the all-genre celebration and represent country music.
“This is one of the best talent years in a long time. Such a great collection of artists that I’m so excited to see, perform and hopefully run into backstage get a few hugs in of some of my favorites,” Twain added. “I just love the whole spirit of all of it. It’s wonderful. So it, it’s just a time to celebrate anyway in the world. We’re just all finally out together and so I think we just come out here and on the red carpet and share our best. And our smiles are the best, are the most beautiful part of all of us. I think. So sharing a lot of those.”
