If, like me, you thought the red carpet at tonight’s Grammy Awards was a little bit “meh,” it may have been because some pretty major stars skipped the fashion parade.

I’m looking at you, Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Lorde, Julia Roberts, and Reverend Queen Latifah also must have entered the Staples Center through a side door, because we had to wait until the ceremony was well underway before we could get a glimpse at what they were wearing.

After Lorde shared photos of her bizarre style inspirations — including a “siberian bear hunting outfit” and a woman with “over-it zombie eyes” — on Instagram, she was a no-show on the red carpet. When the 17 year-old singer took the stage to accept the Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance, we got a look at her goth black Balenciaga Japanese silk gown.
