It was ladies night at the Grammy awards last night, as Beyonce and Taylor Swift walked away with six and four awards respectively. But who were the winners in the style stakes?
As usual, there were some rather bold fashion choices on the red carpet with Lady Gaga characteristically grabbing everyone’s attention in a futuristic creation from Armani Prive. The solar system gown came complete with its own spiky metallic star ornament.
Later on in the evening, she changed into another silver creation complete with a bizarre headpiece to showcase her two awards for Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/ Electronic album.
Meanwhile, other A-Listers glittered on the red-carpet with nude, golden and silver hues seeming to be the colours of choice. Katy Perry wore a floor-length Zac Posen gown, accessorised with a jewelled Judith Leiber clutch bag and Indian bindi in a look she described as ‘channeling Indian Betty Paige princess’ on her Twitter page.
Some of my other favourite outfits came from country singer Carrie Underwood who looked elegant in a floor length pale gown from Georges Charka, and Glee actress Lea Michelle in an asymmetrical Romona Keveza mini dress.
Rihanna also tried out the feathered trend in a cream Elie Saab gown, while Taylor Swift opted for full on glamour in a glittery blue dress from Kaumanfranco.
Considering she was the star of the night, I was a little disappointed in Beyonce’s choice of a nude Stephane Rolland gown. The geometric pattern and unusual neckline proved to make her look a little broader than usual, but fortunately she made a better choice for the rest of the show – it’s just a shame Celine Dion had the same idea!
Wardrobe fail of the night? That accolade has to be shared between Britney Spears, actress Phoebe Price and Russian singer Nadeea Volianova. Spears’ choice of sheer black Dolce & Gabbanna dress and bodysuit looked cheap and unflattering, while Price opted for a silver number embellished with shells and finished with a bizarre hemline reminiscient of octopus legs…not a good look! As for Nadeea, she was obviously working with the mantra ‘less is more’ in a micro tutu, barely-there corset and silver eye make-up.
