Ariana Grande’s 19 Best Looks of the Year, From The Voice to Her Wedding

To say it’s been an eventful year for Ariana Grande would be an understatement. She released her album Positions, started her new post as a judge on The Voice, and, oh yeah, she also got married. The superstar has made the most of her 2021, delivering stellar fashion moments along the way. Vogue is taking a look back at some of her best outfits of the year—all 19 of them, to be exact.

In September, the singer kicked off her stint as a judge on The Voice. Even when her outfits have been concealed on the singing competition—while sitting in those famous swivel chairs, of course—the singer has still brought her fashion A-game. In looks styled by Mimi Cuttrell, Grande has consistently offered a fresh take on evening wear via youthful silhouettes (think short hemlines, but super-tall platforms).

Last month she wore a strapless dress with a shell-shaped bra by GCDS. Earlier this year, she sported a metallic blue party dress with puffed shoulders and a waist cut-out by Miss Sohee, a London-based label. But maybe her most viral hit was when she wore the 2000s Versace dress from 13 Going on 30.

Outside of the show, Grande has delivered many chic moments for her stage performances. For the 2021 iHeart Radio Music Awards, she wore a silky wrap top from Rat & Boa with a matching skirt and diamond necklaces to perform with The Weeknd. For her live Vevo performance of Positions, she belted it out in sleek leather pants, a bra top, and opera gloves (what a combination!). Grande really refined her aesthetic this year, finding ensembles that are the perfect mixture of fun, current, and timeless.

Her best look of the year, though, wasn’t on TV or the stage—it was what she wore while marrying her husband, Dalton Gomez, at her California home back in May. For her special day, Grande enlisted Vera Wang to create her wedding dress: a custom lily white, silk charmeuse, empire-waist column gown. The elegant look was complete with a plunging back and hand-pleated bubble veil. It was a fresh take on classic bridal style, and 100 percent Ariana. The bride didn’t say I do; she said, “Yuh!”
