Music artists have the power to influence the public with their songs, and sometimes, also with their fashion. That’s the case with the Grammy Awards nominees for 2024’s Best Album of the Year.
The ceremony will take place on Feb. 4 in Los Angeles, and fans are excited to see what Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, Janelle Monáe, Jon Batiste and Boygenius are going to wear on the Grammys red carpet. But for these artists, this won’t be their first time at the rodeo.
