Grammy Red Carpet Fashion is like the rebellious teenage sibling of the Oscars. As with adolescent style, sometimes it’s refreshingly new and different and sometimes it’s a “what was she thinking?” moment. Unfortunately there were many more “oh my!” moments this year than inspiring fashion highs… but all of it very entertaining.
Some parts of the Red Carpet looked more like a petting zoo than a style who’s who. (Yes, Nicky Minaj we’re talking to you)…
But leave it to an 18 year old to lead the fashion pack. Selena’s Gomez’s dress may have been a bit demure for the Grammy’s (and it definitely could have used a statement necklace to kick it up a notch). But we applaud her for knowing that although the shock factor can reap big publicity reward’s it usually won’t get you on the best dressed list. Leave the freak factor to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.
Other celebrities completely missed the mark. Kim Kardashian’s curvy figured got lost in this ill-fitted dress. All that extra fabric hanging low around her midsection added bulk to her hips and stomach and hid her hourglass shape. The pink shoes didn’t do her any favors either. The unexpected color change (from glitzy gold to Laura Ashley pastel pink) stops your eye and therefore shortens her lovely legs. A nude or gold tone evening pump would have elongated her leg and her look.
Ciara, we didn’t know you were a “Trekkie”. Lady Gaga must be jealous – her ride was only an intergalactic pod, but you got the Starship Enterprise.
We love you Justin Bieber- but what’s up with the Good Humor Man look? Or are you just one of the nice men that is coming to take Lady Gaga away?
For any gal over the age of 4, pipe cleaners and white plastic Hawaiian leis are clearly not a great fashion statement. Combine it with strips of body skimming shear netting and you’ve got a true celebrity style mishap.
Hmmm. After seeing the best that tinsel town had to offer Sunday night , maybe arriving in a pod wasn’t such a bad idea after all….
Looking forward to the Oscars….!
