Yes, the Grammy Awards were last week & since then it has been quite the crazy one, so I’m just now getting to blog about it. Is it really worth blogging about when Lady Gaga‘s entrance in an egg was without some serious fashion history-in-the-making. I do have to say that my favorite of the night was Jennifer Lopez, although she could’ve used about one and half more inches on her hemline b/c I was afraid of catching a glimpse of something that I didn’t wanna see. While the night was filled with glamour, eccentricity, & class, let’s take a first look at the ladies of the night who were decked out in sparkles.
While it seems that Kim Kardashian took a page from Jennifer Lopez‘s handbook of red carpet style once again (paying homage to the velvet Marchesa at the 2009 Golden Globes), she might’ve looked out of place, but still more glamorous than Snooki, who I purposefully choose to leave out of this review.
Next we have the ladies from Glee who were celebrating their nomination for the show’s soundtrack. My favorite among these is Dianna Agron, but I give Jenna Ushkowitz a strong shout out for improving slowly, but surely in each red carpet appearance. Considering Lea Michele‘s look for last year’s ceremony, I was a little disappoint & I think it’s time that she put her cleavage away- we get it.
Some of the prettiest looks of the night were the ones the most ladylike & dazzling. While a pregnant Jewel made her best red carpet appearance EVER, I was a big fan, as always, of Eva Longoria. You might wonder why she was in attendance, but what’s a red carpet appearance without her? Jordin Sparks looked age-appropriate, and Keri Hilson knocked last year’s D&G look out of the park!
The ladies who embraced patterns & went for colors, ruffles, cut-outs, and trains. It’s clear that Nicole Kidman is a stand-out during this awards season, while she’s attending the ceremony to support her husband, country singer Keith Urban. If Ciara’s shoes were a bit simpler (like something with a thin strap like Jennifer Aniston wears), then I would totally love her entire look.
This year’s breakout stars included Florence Welch, of Florence & the Machine, Nicki Minaj, Esperanza Spalding, & Janelle Monae. They all reached for something individual, channeling animal prints, ruffles, & Janelle showed off her famous menswear glam.
Rihanna took on an elegant peek-a-boo look, while Kelly Osbourne (my favorite reason for watching E!’s Fashion Police) continues to surprise fashoinistas with another uber-feminine / delicate look.
With a quick look at last year’s Grammy Awards, we see how nicely the glam factor has risen, but the stars of the night continue to shine on every year. Now that stars like Rihanna & Jennifer Hudson have entered the picture, we can hope that every year gets more & more fabulous.
