Darlings, are you ready to get your Grammys on and rate the red carpet? Smashing.
Let’s start with Carrie Underwood’s twinkling, snowy Gomez-Gracia frock. While demure from the front, the back was a fun surprise! I loved her dazzling diamond earrings as well as her espresso clutch and feathery lashes.
There were a lot of neutrals on the red carpet (whites, blacks, metallics), so seeing Fergie’s blood-orange Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown felt very fresh. Not many can pull off a peek-a-boo dress, but Fergie managed to do it with flying colors (er, color) — and it still felt rather ladylike. Bravo.
I also swooned over Katy Perry’s powdery blue Elie Saab, which oozed 1950’s glamour. Of course, she kept it cool and true to herself with a matching blue ‘do. Russell who?
Gwyneth Paltrow looked polished and modern and in a floor-length Stella McCartney black dress and shiny gold belt.
She wasn’t alone, as Paris Hilton (why hello, Paris, fancy seeing you here) cinched her ladylike Basil Soda cap-sleeved frock with a gold belt, too. Do you like this trend? I do!
While most Grammy attendees flaunted long dresses, Corinne Bailey Rae’s swingy ruffle-hemmed Christian Siriano number charmed and delighted and felt both girly and glamourous.
Speaking of glamourous, Adele’s sparkling black custom-made Armani gown was perfection. The cinced waist was figure-flattering and her vintage-inspired hair, makeup and jewels are all I’ve been able to think about since seeing them. A glam slam, indeed!
Well, this is a first, but Taylor Swift’s golden Zuhair Murad gown dazzled — and fit her to a tee – making her a Best Dressed nominee!
p.s. Which of these dresses would you most like to wear? Color me surprised, but I’m leaning towards Katy Perry’s dress! How about you?
