The Good, the Bad and the GaGa: Red Carpet Glamour from the Grammy’s

1 Feb

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.

What do you think about the stars’ Grammy gowns? Who were your style winners and losers?

    I love Britney too, but she seems to have consistently bad styling! I agree Katy looks lovely, one of my favourites of the night I think. Thanks! Chloe xx

    I love Lady Gaga’s hair in the first picture, adn Katy Perry looks amazing, as usual. I have a huge girl crush on her, and she seems to be goring from strength to strength when it comes to fashion.
    I’m also realy dissappointed in that dress beyonce wore, and lol at their awkward smiles!

    OMG to Britney..her stylist needs to go she deserves a much better outfit than that! Again Beyonce could have done alot better, the first dress doesnt suit her figure..n the second luks like scraps of metal..I love the black feather dress that Lea michelle is wearing WOW…Gaga is extreme but always original i love her…those last two dresses r horrific i dont understand how ppl rich enough to be at the grammys can turn up in rags! I agree about Katy Perry she looks fab n more sophisticated rather than her usual quirky style x
