This years 54th Annual Grammy Awards, were flat and sadly missed the mark throughout the evenings telecast. Thankfully the ladies on the red carpet didn’t disappoint. Here’s my top ten picks of who wore it well.
Rihanna who typically can look very hit or miss was stunning and all grown up in a sexy black Giorgio Armani halter gown with a deep v-plunging neckline and center front slit. I’m typically not a fan of her hair, but her blonde tousled do with dark roots looked fresh and modern. She finished the look with bold statement gold accessories.
Katy Perry’s elegant Elie Saab beaded gown in sea foam with opened boat neck, three quarter sleeves and belt was 50’s chic, but would have faired better without the matching hair.
Carrie Underwood in a Gomez-Gracia, high-neck long sleeved black and white confetti gown with black clutch and diamond drop earrings was the perfect choice for the evening.
Taylor Swift selected a beautiful Zuhair Murad high collared, opened neck, capped sleeved, embroidered gown that was paired with simple accessories and up swept hair.
Gwyneth Paltrow, always a winner, scored again, in a black halter neck Stella McCartney gown and metallic gold belt that was reminiscent of Halston’s glory days.
Kathy Griffin who’s typically not one of my favorites was in vogue in a Michael Kors ivory one sleeved jersey gown, with side ruching that made the comedian look like a Greek goddess. Her loosely styled hair with slight wave was also a winner.
Paris Hilton opted for glam choosing a sophisticated ivory gown, accented with gold and ivory beaded detail and gold belt by Basil Soda.
Corinne Bailey Rae wore her version of the classic 50’s party dress complete with a ruffled tiered skirt by Christian Siriano. She gave the look a little edge by paring it with a chunky platform heels and side swept hair.
Kate Beckinsale continued her award season’s red carpet winning streak in a one shouldered, Zuhair Murad draped cocktail dress accented with an oversized black bow, shoes and pulled back hair.
The true winner of the evening, taking home seven Grammy awards including record and album of the year, was Adele who also was a red carpet stunner looking magnificent in a classic beaded three quarter sleeved black Giorgio Armani gown and diamond earring that were tailor made for the look.
