The ladies have decided to break from tradition on tonight's2015 Grammys red carpet by nixing an award show linchpin: the red lip. Even diehard red lippers Gwen Stefani, Taylor Swift, and Rita Ora skipped their usual bold pouts in favor of something more subtle.

Does this mean the siren staple is out of favor for 2015? It sure seems like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, and Charli XCX are saying so.

Only time (and the Oscars) will tell...
