Olivia Rodrigo Goes Old Hollywood in a Low-Cut Vintage Versace Gown at the 2024 Grammys

Olivia Rodrigo is competing in some of the Grammy ceremony’s biggest categories tonight, and she leaned into the moment. The 20-year-old Guts singer stepped out in white, 1995 vintage Versace gown on the red carpet. She wore a bold red lip to complement the red detailing on the dress and channeled old Hollywood with her hair’s deep side part and soft waves.

Rodrigo is nominated for Record of the Year (“Vampire”), Album of the Year (Guts), Best Pop Vocal Album (Guts), Song of the Year (“Vampire”), Best Pop Solo Performance (“Vampire”), and Best Rock Song (“Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl”).

When the nominations were announced in November, Rodrigo expressed her excitement and gratitude over them on Instagram. “6 grammy noms today???????????? what an incredible honor to be recognized by the recording academy in this way,” she wrote. “grateful is an understatement!!!!! and huge congrats to @dan_nigro for his producer of the year nom, there’s no one more deserving!! second slide is me rn!!!!!”

Rodrigo reflected further on the success of Guts in a late November interview with Variety. “When I write, my goal is to capture the essence of what I’m feeling in a way that’s going to be poignant and concise,” she said. “On Guts, I felt I had a lot I wanted to get off of my chest—the shame and embarrassment and regrets. All feelings that are hard to externalize in everyday life but I think this record gave me an outlet to process them… It was a very important album for me to write as Olivia the person.”

On the lessons she learned writing the album, she said, “The experience tested my confidence and patience. It taught me some important lessons about songwriting in terms of focusing on your craft rather than just waiting for inspiration to strike. It taught me about the mindset that is most conducive to writing: You can never sit down at the piano and try to write something that everyone will like; that always results in a really bad song. It taught me that I write songs that I want to hear.”

She added that “these days, I try to write one song every day. I just feel like myself when I’m writing. If I don’t do it, I get depressed. I’m just writing songs to process what’s going on, whether in my personal life or in my perception of the world.”
