There were plenty of dazzling looks on display at this year's Grammy Awards, but there was a clear standout as most talked-about: Joy Villa turned up with a "Choose Life" handbag and had a picture of a fetus hand-painted on her ballgown, USA Today reports. The musician—who wore a Make America Great Again dress last year—told Fox that her anti-abortion statement was inspired by her decision to give a child up for adoption when she was 21 years old. Other stars making the best, worst, or weirdest-dressed lists of US Weekly and Cosmopolitan include Chrissy Teigen, Lana Del Ray, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna, who skipped the red carpet but accepted her Best Rap/Sung Performance award in a high-shine leather trenchcoat worn as an off-the-shoulder dress.
