Ariana Grande arrived at the 2020 Grammys wearing a ball gown with a dramatic skirt that filled the frame of most red-carpet photos. The "thank u, next" singer's gown was a custom gown designed by Giambattista Valli. Grande's stylist, Law Roach, told E! News that when Grande tried on the ball gown for the first time, he was moved to tears, and Grande said, "'Well, this is the dress then.'" Valli does not typically design custom gowns, Roach told E! News.
The focal point of Grande's ball gown was its massive skirt, which has a diameter of 20 feet, Roach told E! News. Roach added that the gray color of Grande's gown and matching gloves would also be present in her onstage performance.
Grande wore her hair in her signature high ponytail and accessorized with a pair of diamond earrings. Her shoes were Louboutin pumps with grips on the bottom to help keep her from slipping, according to E! News.
Following Grande's red-carpet entrance, a fan account on Twitter pointed out that the singer's coordinating gray gloves highlighted a butterfly tattoo — which appears to be new to fans — on her upper arm.
