The Grammys are my ultimate in Awards Season fashion. They are the perfect venue for fashion risks, short fun dresses, sparkle and COLOR!
This year, didn't disappoint. From the ah-mazing shut-it-down ensembles, to those that downright made me yell "What the f*ck?!" at the TV, here are my Bests and Worst of the 2012 Grammys.
Let me start off by saying, no one does black like Mr. Armani.
Rihanna stunned in her sexy black Armani gown. Would I have liked a different hair selection? Yes. But, who is honestly looking at the Bichon Frise on her head when she is wearing that slinky stunner of a gown? She looked to-die & I strongly doubt this dress could have been worn by any other than Ri-Ri herself.
Adele was picture perfect in her black Armani floor-length sparkler. Her entire look was flawless. From her signature lashes to her new blonde locks-- it was her night!
I like to give credit where credit is deserved, and Carrie Underwood, deserves credit. She looks perfect in her Gomez-Gracia gown. However, I would like to see her do something else other than a sequin, low back, just once on a red carpet.
Now, I did want to stick to musicians only for this Best & Worst rant however, I must mention Gweneth Paltrow in Stella McCartney. Yes, she is a singer but, primarily- she spends her time on the movie screen. Last night, she was amaze from head-to-toe. It was so good I literally gasped when she came on stage to introduce Adele's performance. Fashion that takes my breath away, absolutely needs noted.
But, we all know-- not everyone can get it right. There were plenty of misses as always on the Grammy red carpet. Although I would like to rip them all apart, I haven't the time in my day. So let's just go over a few that really, really pissed me off.
Katy Perry. I am all about you matching your fierce hair color to your dresses, I always have been. I am your number one fan girlfriend! But, when you put on your Grandmother's/Cinderella's gown and walk down a red carpet (after your hubby files for divorce) we have a problem. I wanted to see the sexy Kitty Purry that I know and love come out and give Russell a big "F- You!" and unfortunately, I was disappointed in this Elie Saab pick.
Robyn. Ugh, I love Robyn. I will scream "Call Your Girlfriend" at any hour of the day, and get up and dance uncontrollably. But, really? I know not everyone in her hotel room getting ready just agreed and said "Yes, you look great! Wear that!" Someone, anyone, had to have said "You look like a butch Lumberjack, the end."
Finally, and I hate to do this, my girl Nicki. What are you doing? The red hood is Gaga's move (and you don't-mess-with-Gaga.) And a Bishop? I highly doubt he has heard your recent single "You's a stupid H*e" or he wouldn't have been so keen on being your escort. I am all about fashion risks but, this is just a joke. Now, the full leopard get-up, with leopard print weave from the 2011 Grammys--I fully support.
Let's just end this post with a little eye candy, shall we?
