The 2013 Grammy awards which held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California was a night of music and fashion… Two of my favourite things in the world.
The fashion was a mixture of Glam and Sham… With the strict ‘no showing too much skin’ Grammy dress code, the stars tried their best to look good and covered up.
Here are some of my favourite looks and some that i just don’t like.
THE LADIES IN RED:
Rihanna looked gorgeous as always in a flowing red Alaia dress. The dress is covered up and sexy at the same time. Her long hair makes her look sweet and girl next door.
Skylar Grey totally rocked this backless dress. It’s not showing anything inappropriate and it’s sexy at the same time. Way to go Skylar.
Natasha Bedingfield looked totally dashing in Emerson. The gold belt defines her waist line properly and she just rocked the whole look
Adele: We love Adele in black… This look just proves it. The fabric looks like it was meant for table cloth, the fact that it’s a ball dress makes her look fatter. We love Adele, but we really think she should stick to wearing her flowing dresses.
LADIES IN BLACK:
Kelly Rowland tops this list for me and she’s definitely on the list of top 5 best dressed women at the Grammy. This look is flawless. From the hair, to the makeup to the jewellery. She looks beautiful and sexy.
This Georges Chakra dress is totally amazing.
Miranda Lambert in Roberto Cavalli… Not exactly a mind blowing look… The dress looks like a maternity dress… Is she preggers?? I think she needs to step up her style.
Carrie Underwood: She’s glowing. Yes, it’s not an off the hook look, it’s a boob tube, mermaid style dress but that smile.. Hmmm… You just gotta love Carrie.
Alicia Keys: Ever glowing Alicia.. That’s what I call her. I love how her skin looks everytime. Showing off her curves in this black cut-out dress. I like!
Eric’s Atkins-Campbell: Somebody say curvy! She looks really pretty and I just love her body.
Ashanti in Tony Ward Couture… LOOOOOL! That’s pretty much all I have to say… She’s wearing drapes… Not good.
Carly Rae Jepsen: I need Carly to start wearing more grown up dresses. She’s 27, I don’t know why she insists on dressing up like she’s 18 years old. It’s not a bad look, but we need her to grow up.
Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad: I hate this… There’s are no words to describe how much. First of all, the fabric looks like cheap satin and she’s showing off too much leg. It’s just
a weird look, not very JLO like.
THE LADIES IN GREEN:
Katy Perry came with her girls! We love them. She looked really good in this Gucci dress and the jet black hair is just great! It’s nice to see her being a grown up.
Solange Knowles: we totally love her afro! She looks beautiful as always. She’s one of Hollywood’s most fashionable women and we just love her. Dear JLO, this is how to rock a thigh high slit.
Florence Welch in custom Givenchy… I’m not sure how I feel about this dress. But hey, ‘custom’ kinda makes me not want make a comment.
Estelle looked alright… I’m not crazy about the dress, I think the print is weird and too much to have all over your body. She designed the dress herself… Good for her.
Esperanza Spalding: The fabric looks safari inspired and I don’t like it. It looks like she’s wearing a wall paper.
Lila Downs: I saw this and I just thought ‘is she a gypsy???’ the look is just annoying!
THE LADIES IN PANTS:
Beyonce tops this list! Looking like a million dollars in this Osman jumpsuit and sleek pony tail, Mrs Carter looks dashing and we just love it. It’s different and beautiful.
Kaley Cuoco in Amen is not mind blowing but it works. Simple and pretty.
Janelle Monae: In her signature black tux look… We like but we’d love to see Janelle is a dress.. That won’t hurt.
Jeannie Mai… Cute! I love this look, I’m just not sure I love it for the Grammys. It definitely looks good for an episode of How Do I Look.
Roci…. Lool! This isn’t 106 & Park. Step it up honey.
Ellen Degeneres and Portia Di Rossi: We understand Ellen’s look and we love it but Portia is confusing me. Is she trying to look like Ellen now?? Why didn’t she wear a dress?? Ellen, yes! Portia, no!
WHITE AND NUDE:
Taylor Swift looks enchanted as usual in this J. Mendel number.
Nicole Kidman in Vera Wang: Not my favorite Nicole look but oh well.
Bonnie McKee: I love this dress and I love the hairdo.. I’m obsessed with red hair.. I’m just not sure I like them together.
Kimbra… This is a joke right??? I don’t even understand this look.. None of it makes any kinda sense.
Guiliana Rancic: For the first time ever, I don’t like how Guliana looks. The dress just doesn’t fit properly.
Justin Timberlake: Looking dapper in Tom Ford, we love Justin. He does no wrong.
Nas looked great in this Brioni number. Totally digging the colour, we love!
John Mayer in Brioni.. I don’t think it’s a great look but it’s not horrible.
Chris Brown in all white Lanvin. I like but the shoes are just off… Looks like he was playing in mud.
Gotye: It was a big night for Gotye and he looked Dapper. Way to go!
LL Cool J: it’s LL Cool J… Everything about him is sexy. We love.
Maroon 5.., this band of hotties looked totally awesome in all black. Loves it!
Jack Black: What was he thinking???
Red Foo: Just as I expected… Oh well.
Ne-Yo: I love how he looked. Well, I always do… But it’s because he looks good everytime!
Keith Urban in Rick Owen: He needs to stop looking like his name is Mr Nicole Kidman. Dear Keith, it’s okay to look like the man every once in a while.
