NEW YORK -- Stars, including Lady Gaga, turned out on the Grammys red carpet Sunday displaying white roses in solidarity with the Time's Up and #MeToo movements against sexual misconduct ahead of music's biggest night and what is usually the wildest display of fashion during awards season. Gaga was in a black lace top and leggings with a full skirt and train, white rose in place and her hair swept into a fishtail braid with black lacing.

Her signature towering platform shoes -- black boots this time around -- were on her feet.

In an interview with CBS News, singer Rita Ora said she was excited to participate in the music industry's response to the Time's Up movement.

"I'm wearing the white rose this week, which represents solidarity with everything that's going on and there's a lot of people also wearing it, so I'm excited to show my support," she said.

Rick Ross went for black fur over his black tuxedo, gold-trim shades in place.

Rapper K. Flay, in a black tuxedo jacket, chose a Time's Up button instead of the flower but noted all such symbols are important expressions of solidarity for women. Songwriter Diane Warren, a 15-time Grammy nominee, wore black and white and went her own way on symbols. She wore white gloves with "Girl" on one hand and "Power" on the other, explaining: "I didn't want to wear the rose. I'm a rebel."

Nominees The Secret Sisters won for largest white roses, noting it's time for the music industry to step up and better acknowledge sexual misconduct.

Perhaps it was a New York vibe -- the Grammys hadn't been held here in 15 years -- that had a parade of music men opting for traditional black tuxedos and suits. Or perhaps the black, including sparkly star looks, was a holdover from the solidarity display in support of women sexual misconduct survivors at the recent Screen Actors Guild awards.
