Music, fashion create a duet
First, it must be said: Adele rocked the red carpet in her sparkly Armani Prive gown. Her blonde hair and red lips set the look off right. This look was chic, simple and the epitome of old Hollywood glamour. After the singer was recently called "fat" by Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld, she showed off her curves and looked simply radiant. She also took home six Grammys.
Another Armani dress received much praise from the stunning Rihanna. The dress was unique and daring, also partly designed by Rihanna. "I wanted something a little bit Michelle Pieffer from 'Scarface;' simple but a sexy gangster at the same time," the singer admitted in an interview by Ryan Seacrest. She also lightened her locks to complete the look. The plunging neckline was certainly a statement, but she rocked it.
Kings of Leon band members took a break from their usual plain and simple style to be dressed head to toe in Gucci. They each wore a different colored suit in navy, bronze and black. They sure clean up nice.
Other best dressed celebs were Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Kelly Osbourne.
On a different note, the fashion faux pas of the red carpet were all pretty scary. Being extreme at the Grammys is always tricky; it either works or it doesn't. A few certainly pushed the boundaries. The first look that stunned was Fergie's see-through Jean Paul Gaultier orange dress. The dress fit her like a glove but her accessory choices were so wrong. Pairing the transparent lace gown with black lingerie and bold, gold jewelry made the whole look clash.
Nicki Minaj gave everyone something to talk about when she showed up in a daring Versace piece. The outfit was very "Little Red Riding Hood" and a little over the top, even for the Grammys. Always bold and style adventurous, this could not have been worn by anyone but the eclectic diva. Still, save it for the woods.
Other worst dressed celebs included Robyn, Lady Gaga and Sasha Gradiva. Stay tuned for two more major fashion events: New York Fashion Week and the Academy Awards.
