Grammys Fashion Favorites
I love to watch the awards shows just like everybody else. And it's totally out of control to see the fashions at the Grammys. This year was just as crazy and fun as all the years past.
Rihanna stole the show on the red carpet in a daring peek-a-boo gown with ruffles by Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Louboutin shoes.
Lady Gaga was in Thierry Mugler by Nicola Formichetti and shocked everyone as usual.
She arrived in a "womb" and emerged in latex for her performance.
Nicole Kidman was stunning on the runway and was hands-down my favorite as she chose Jean Paul Gaultier for her turn on today's Grammys red carpet, and what a frock it is! The strapless, floral print column dress suits Nicole Kidman's slender frame, and the ruffle edge detailing on the bust, and lower tiers of the dress adds texture and a sense of fun to her frock. Opting for contrasting rather than coordinating accessories, her leopard print peep toe heels and gold and emerald jewels stand out against her dress of choice.
Jazz bassist Esperanza Spalding pulled off the biggest upset of tonight’s Grammys when she won the award for best new artist over far better-known competition, including rapper Drake and pop star Justin Bieber. I fell in love with her fabulous dress.
Rihanna performed with Eminem, Dr. Dre and Skylar Grey, wearing an absolutely fabulous gown that mimicked the fire graphics in the background of the huge stage.
Katy Perry showed up in a princess-like frock and sang "Not Like the Movies" from her
latest album "Teenage Dream" while sitting on a sparkly swing.
She also showed footage on a huge projector playing behind her, from her wedding to Russell Grand with the British comedian kissing on their big day.
After the mellow performance, Katy was back to her cheering route by singing "Teenage Dream". "This one goes out to all the Valentine lovers!" she shouted to the audience.
She joined dancers in red outfits on the stage fitted with crystal heart-shaped appliques.
The Grammys gave me a fabulous fashion fix tonight :-)
