Whilst actors were braving the rain in London for the BAFTAs, the music industry were gearing up for 55th Annual Grammy Awards were held in a sunnier L.A. this past Sunday. As usual it was a glitzy and outrageously glamorous affair, check out some of the highlights below.
You could probably see my best dressed from a mile off! Taylor Swift once again stole the show for me in a white J.Mendel gown with silver detailing. Elegant as always this look was styled with simple make up and a pretty heidi braid. It seems like it was a night for the country singers because Carrie Underwood came a close number #2 to Ms Swift! While Taylor went for white, Carrie went for a black lace gown by Roberto Cavalli. But don't be fooled, she hasn't gone all gothic on us! The whole look is classic Hollywood glamour and simply beautiful.
As always my eye was on the lookout for some Brit representation at the event. Florence Welch, went for an unusual green Givenchy Couture gown on the night. With it's spiked shoulder details and shiny material I'm very much on the fence about this one, since she usually goes for something ethereal looking rather than space age (bar her Bestival outfits). The whole looks left me thinking this is perhapes a little too Gaga for Flo.
Adele is out of the black Burberry and into a patterned red Valentino Couture dress. I'm happy she's showing some colour, but the print and cut of the dress feels a little too frumpy for Adele.
Carly Rae Jepsen went for a vampish Roberto Cavalli number, with sleek hair and dark make up, sometimes I forget this 'Call Me Maybe' singer is 27 years old! Rihanna danced with the devil in a firey red Azzedine Alaia gown. Though the colour was hot, Rihanna's look was surprisingly demure for once styled with loose ombre hair.
As soon as I saw the twit pic of Alicia Keys' outfit I knew I would be breathing a sigh of relief! Her sleek minimalist Azzedine Alaia gown with sexy cut outs is a 100% improvement on anything she's worn before. I don't even mind the bouffant hair-do - as it shows of the dress in full. Kelly Osbourne seems to have gotten my memo and 1. tied that god-awful hair of her's back 2. went for a Paule Ka dress that is eye catching yet wonderfully simple. Please keep this up Kelly!!
With Gaga AND Minaj noticeably absent at the show I had to look elsewhere to find some kooky-ness. Katy
booby Perry is definitely never someone to shy away from the spot light and despite it's bright colour her Gucci gown is rather demure for the singer...until you spot the elephant in the room peep out of that keyhole detail in the dress...Er...Despite this I think she looks great! Jannelle Monet was in her standard uniform suit and tie combo, this time with embellished lapels. Kimbra accepted her award in a Florence Welch-worthy Jaime Lee Major gown. This may be a divider but I love this from the OTT tulle to the gold embellishments, Kimbra is definitely indie enough to pull it off.
Right I know it's the Grammys Kelly Rowland but hmmm....not sure about this one. On paper Kelly in a sleek black Georges Chakra gown with sheer panels to highlight her body sounds great, but in action she's left looking a little overexposed (wasn't there a no boobs or bums rule this year?). Jennifer Lopez normally brings a heavy hit of D.I.V.A. her Anthony Vaccarello dress makes her look like she's wearing a duvet.
