Red Carpet: Grammy Awards

The Grammy's are probably my favorite red carpet, because the fashion is fun and borderline crazy.. or in some cases actual crazy. I didn't watch the show, or the red carpet live as I had hoped for... so my judgments are all based on photographs and not on "oh it looked good on the telly".


Nicki Minaj: Givenchy
 I saw Nicki Minaj's outfit after I had posted this post and I couldn't be bothered with editing it. But one of my lovely readers noticed her absence from the post, so I decided to add her. (Just for you Beirut Boy). On to the outfit. I don't know if I like/love/hate Nicki Minaj, her music is ok..not my thing..but not too annoying. One thing I have noticed about her that I really like, is her pink lipstick. It looks great, all the time. Her outfits on the other hand, I've seen a couple... and I don't know, sometimes they're fun other times not so much ..With all these pop stars these days dressing crazy, I really can't tell the "Gaga's" from the "Gaga wannabes". Is this Minaj's style or is she doing this for attention? I really can't tell. If she's doing this because she likes it/wants to, then I'll judge this outfit based on that. If she's wearing it because "Oh HAI LOOK AT ME", then eff this, you look ridiculous. Her intentions aside, if you look at it on the runway... yea it's dramatic and very animal printy.. but it's not so bad.  I wish it was breakdownable (yes I made that word up), shoes/boots separate, skirt seperate, top thingy separate etc.  I actually really like the silky skirt part of this, er, dress. The rest of it...together... not so sure. My main problem with the look isn't the outfit itself, but the flippin hair. Ew, just ew. 80's Frankenstein skunk mohawk leopard thingy? No thank you.

Eva Longoria Dress: Ashi Studio / Earrings: Loree Rodkin / Clutch: Sergio Rossi / Pumps: Brian Atwood.
 A very Grammy appropriate sexy chic look, black satin is one of my favorite materials. The black pumps go great with the outfit, I can't stop staring at them!So pretty! Speaking of pretty, I like the sleek pony tail on Eva.
Heida Klum: Gown: Julien MacDonald / Pumps: "Lady Peep" Python by Christian Louboutin
 What's up with Heidi and her red carpet fails lately? My eyes hurt when I looked at this pic. Too much gold, glitter material. This dress wold have been beautiful if it was a better fit and didn't have those ruffly sleeves. At first look, I thought the shoes were also glittery (left pic), but at a closer look you can see that it's a colorful python pump by Christian Louboutin. They're hands down my favorite part of the outfit. I love these pumps so much, I want to own them one day! Beautiful.

Jennifer Hudson: Gown: Versace / Jewelry: Neil Lane / Shoes: "Amber" by Christian Louboutin
 I haven't seen J. Hud in such a long time, that I didn't recognize her!!! O.O She lost a LOT of weight, she looks like a different person!!! Woah!! Back to the look, she looks great! This is a very sexy gown by Versace. The details on the bodice are really cool, I really like the silver on the navy. As for her shoes, they're by Louboutin and have been spotted on the red carpet before. Although it's nothing new, I like the strappy buckled sandals with the gown. It gives the look some edge.

Katy Perry: Gown: Giorgio Armani / Pumps: Casadei
 It was at the 2008 Grammy's when I first started paying attention to Katy Perry's red carpet looks. She looked beautiful in a pink Basil Soda gown, from that day forth I always look forward to see what she's going to wear. At this year's Grammy's, Katy wowed me again in a white Versace gown with a Swarovski encrusted bodice and Casadei pumps. Her hair is perfection, and contrasts very well with the white dress.  I love this look, yup even the wings. Little quirky things like that are part of Perry's style, and I love it. I'm a little iffy about her make-up and the Casadei platforms. Although I did love the pink pumps she wore with her Betsey Johnson dress at the PCA's... I'm not really lovin these silver jewel encrusted ones. For some reason they remind me of little princess tiara's with the fake jewels..  :/

Lea Michelle: Gown: Emilio Pucci / Jewels: Lorraine Schwartz / Pumps: "Daffodile" by Christian Louboutin
 Breaking News: Lea Michelle is NOT wearing Oscar De La Renta. Repeat. Not Oscar.
Instead she's wearing one of my favorite designers, Emilio Pucci. I don't really like the dress though. Doesn't it look like it needs to be ironed or something? It's just not working for me. Her bracelet on the other hand, WOW. I usually don't pay too much attention to the jewelry on the red carpet because it's usually very blah. But this cuff, WOW, I'm speechless. It's called the "lovebird" cuff, at first I thought it was a yin-yang but then I saw the birds. I love the pink and the green with the black, it adds just the right amount of color to the outfit.

Miley Cyrus: Gown: Roberto Cavalli /  Jewels: OFIRA
 This dress is very Cavalli, animal print inspired and lot's of glitter. I don't hate it, but I don't love it. Miley doesn't look so bad, comparing to what she's recently been wearing... she looks great.
I'm really loving the OFIRA stacked bracelets. Oh how I love turquoise jewelry :)

Nicole Kidman: Gown: Jean Paul Gaultier haute couture / Jewels: Fred Leighton
 I think a lot of people won't like this dress,and I can understand why... it's one of those "love me or hate me" looks... I'm going to go with "love me". I think Kidman looks amazing; her hair looks great, the gown fits very well, and most importantly, she's SMILING
Julianne Hough: Gown: Catherine Malandrino / Earrings: Bochic / Ring: ??? / Clutch: Jimmy Choo
 I love the colors of this gown, the pattern could be prettier but the colors are beautiful. The cut of the dress is hard to see with the loud pattern, but it's actually a very flattering gown. The deep plunging neckline can easily look trashy, but not with this gown.  Julianne looks great.

Miranda Lambert: Gown: Georges Chakra / Jewels: Nina Runsdorf
 I really like the strappy one shoulder of this gown, and the back detail. The fit of the dress is just off, it needs to be tighter in the front, and the back straps should be looser so they don't pinch the back. Apart from that, everything looks great.

Kelly Osborne: Dress: Tadashi Shoji / Jewels:  Forevermark / Pumps: ???
 I really like this color on Kelly. It's just so young and cute. The frills are a bit annoying... especially with that hair. I would have liked it better if her hair was up.

Kim Kardashian: Gown: Kaufman Franco / Jewels: Lorraine Schwartz / Pumps: Christian Louboutin
This is one of my favorite looks of the evening. Kimmy K looks HOOTTT. There, I said it. Her hair is very pretty, he make up is just right.. I'm glad she's toning down the raccoon eyes. The gown is very shimmery, so the nude pumps are a great choice. Her slythering snake cuff? I want it now. You guys know how much I LOVE snake-jewelry, and this cuff is just beautiful. Conclusion, this look = hotness.

Jennifer Lopez: Dress: Emilio Pucci / Clutch: Daniel Swarovski / Jewels: Cartier / Pumps: "Very Mix" peep toe by Christian Louboutin
 I found this look to be very "J.Lo". Don't ask me what I mean by that. Her legs look amazing in this sexy mini dress by Pucci.All the glitter would be too much if she wore it somewhere else,but at the Grammy's it's welcome. My only problem is her hair. Can you say "obvious extensions"? Don't get me wrong, I love hair extensions... but not when they look tacky and when you can tell they're extensions! fashion faux pas.
Rihanna: Gown: Jean Paul Gaultier
The good: hair, fit, off-the-shoulder. The bad: everything else, sheer, puffy cloud things? Conclusion: hate it.
I don't even care if people will disagree, I hate this. Blukh. It looks she put on the window blinds  as a dress (you know those old annoying ones, where you pull the string and only one side goes up or down?) but her blinds are made of puffy whipped cream clouds. yup.
