Grammy's Fashion Highlights

The Grammy's is the stars opportunity to really wow the crowd with unique and creative looks, and I must say this year didn't quite live up to the past. There were a lot of really gorgeous dresses, but they were just "blah" for the setting. Here's my breakdown of some of the most memorable looks. (By the way, if you didn't watch the Fashion Police Grammy's special, watch it asap. It was a particularly hilarious episode!)

Rihanna in Azzedine Alaia.
This was one of my favorites of the night. While the dress was simple for Rihanna's standards, the bright red and sheerness sexed it up.

Katy Perry in Gucci.
Katy obviously wears this dress very well. I really liked seeing her with normal colored hair and a sleeker look.

Beyoncé in Osman.
There's no denying that Queen B really missed the mark on this one. While, yes, it's different to do a pantsuit, and yes, it accentuated how... bootylicious she is, she could have done so much better.

Justin Timberlake in Tom Ford.
I'm absolutely mad for Justin and his suit and tie (and the song, too).

Carrie Underwood in Roberto Cavalli.
This is one of the looks where it's nice and pretty, but it just doesn't inspire any emotion. Plus, the 31 million dollar necklace seems a tad excessive.

Florence Welch in custom Givenchy.
I actually appreciate the creativity and process that went behind this dress, but the finished product is quite bizarre. It definitely channels a lizard-like look.

Taylor Swift in J. Mendel.
This dress stays true to Taylor's sweet style that everyone loves so much. I'm not crazy about the milkmaid braids with the dress, but it keeps the look young and sophisticated at the same time.

Jennifer Lopez in Anthony Vaccarello.
I was so underwhelmed by this look that I can barely critique it. It's pretty much just two pieces of black fabric sewn halfway together... it would have looked much better if the slit had been a few inches higher to elongate the leg, not sever it.

Carly Rae Jepsen in Roberto Cavalli.
I am drawn to the dress, but I don't think that it really made Carly shine. 

Kelly Rowland in Georges Chakra.
I'm in love with this graphic (and very strategic) dress. Kelly won Fashion Police's and my Best Dressed award for the Grammys. She looks simply stunning!
