Lady Gaga made sure the world knew about her new tattoo — on Sunday, she Snapchatted a video of the process as she had an image of David Bowie inked on her rib cage. Too bad we couldn’t see it under the custom Marc Jacobs ensemble she wore on the Grammy red carpet — the striking celestial coat also an homage to the Starman, who Gaga was to honor during the show.

Needless to say, Gaga and her blazing red hair stood out at what was, for the most part, an elegant-yet-safe fashion parade, as stylists were determined not to let their clients rile up the fashion police.

Taylor Swift, showing off a new short bob, wore a bandeau-ball skirt combo in red and pink. Her “date” for the night, Selena Gomez, was all sparkles in a cut-out Calvin Klein.

Other notable looks: Ariana Grande in clingy red Romona Keveza, Kacey Musgraves in a purple/blue ombre Armani Prive, Tori Kelly, elegant in forest green, Adele and Carrie Underwood in classic black.

As for the guys, we loved how Sam Hunt thumbed his nose at convention and wore a suit in the palest pink. And what fun to see Johnny Depp on the red carpet in full rocker regalia.
