The 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet kicks off on Monday, March 27, from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, and the fashion will only get bolder as the night goes on. While that’s partly because VIPs tend to keep us guessing — arriving later in the night to build anticipation for their outfits — we’ll also see performances from the likes of Latto and Pink, the latter of whom is being recognized as the evening’s icon. Naturally, this calls for a few costume changes that will be nothing short of impressive.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift — honored as industry innovator and ringing in at eight nominations — will dress in keeping with her Eras aesthetic, while also paying homage to her career and how it has impacted global pop culture. The 33-year-old star works with stylist Joseph Cassell Falconer on her wardrobe, frequently wearing brands such as David Koma, Zuhair Murad, and Oscar de la Renta. Her looks usually do not go without a glitzy embellishment or beaded embroideries, and it’s not rare for a thigh-high slit or platform shoe to make an appearance.
The Lenny Kravitz-hosted ceremony rounds out award season following the Oscars on March 12, where trends such as sheer elements, hip-high slits, the color yellow, and floor-sweeping trains took hold. It wouldn’t be at all surprising for a few of these edgier silhouettes to show up at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, whether it be on stage or at the step and repeat before guests take their seats.
Ahead, review the designer credits for every look that made us do a double take, from dresses and suits to jewelry and shoes, then check out the red carpet beauty details.
