Last night’s Grammy’s celebrated the crème de la crème of the music business. From an Alice and Wonderland inspired T-Swift performance, to pouring rain (really?) during Fun’s performance, to LL Cool J hosting, Justin Timberlake’s return, Frank Ocean, and numerous tribute performances- the Grammys didn’t disappoint.
Now let’s talk fashion. The Grammys usually offer the possibility for celebs to opt for more provocateur ensembles, and show off their creative personalities while making a fashion statement. This year CBS issued out a memo to all those attending the Grammys to abstain from nudity (seems obvious) and cover up all necessary body parts and avoid overly revealing outfits. However, the joke seems to be on CBC as most A-list celebs walked the red carpet saying “what memo?”
Here’s a recap of the best red carpet fashion moments:
Rihanna looked amazing in a custom couture Alaia bright orange/red gown. With the dress’s sheer cutout around her stomach and flowy skirt, RiRi definitely embodied old Hollywood glam. Her loose waves and matching bright orange lipstick tied this bold look together, creating a lasting red carpet moment.
Beyonce mixed things up after last week’s Super Bowl performance and opted for a classic two-tone OSMAN pantsuit by Osman Yousefzeda. Her chic ponytail and classic red lips tied this look perfectly together- a sophisticated yet sexy look for Beyonce, who had the best accessory last night, hubby Jay Z.
Taylor Swift’s looked like a Greek goddess in her J. Mendel white gown. The silver bands along her waist and neckline added just the right amount of sparkle to this Grammy winner’s look. Taylor pulled off this Grecian dress with such elegance and grace, and didn’t hesitate to show off her killer long legs at the same time.
Katy Perry definitely didn’t get CBS’s memo on covering up. The singer opted for a gorgeous but very revealing Gucci dress. Leaving little to the imagination with her overexposed cleavage, I have to admit that the gown did fit her like a glove, and showed off all the right curves. Katy Perry looked like a beautiful mermaid in this sea foam green number with embellishments around the neckline.
Girl’s superstar Allison Williams looked absolutely amazing and red carpet ready in a Kaufman Franco design. The actress dazzled on the red carpet in this strapless column gown, perfect for her figure. With her hair casually down and sparkling yet elegant jewelry, Williams definitely made her presence known amongst a sea of musical talent.
