2015 Grammy Awards — Best Dressed

The trends of award season continue on with the Grammys, black/sheer combos, white with hints of silver, and jumpsuits. But the big trend to me of the evening, super sexiness from the ladies! These luscious ladies on the Grammys red carpet were vivaciously all about the Va-va-voom — cutouts, sheer effects, plunging necklines, and high slits! So of course my best dressed list includes some sexy numbers, but I managed to sneak in a few traditional picks as well. Enjoy!

1423445705_iggy-azalea-560_640 Iggy Azalea

Iggy looked magnificent in my fave red carpet color, cobalt blue. The details of this custom-made Giorgio Armani silk crepe dress were extremely eye-catching, sheer paneling at the bottom, as well as side and shoulder cutouts.

Jessie J

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer went the simplistically minimal route in this understated LWD by Tom Ford. Her entire accessories, head to toe, were spot-on — metallic Jimmy Choo clutch, Dsquared2 mixed metallic stilettos, diamond Marli choker, Jorge Adeler ring, as well as jewelry pieces from Casa Real and Jack Vartanian.

Love this purple pout — then you should check out MAC Cosmetics, their lip shade, Heroine.

Celeb makeup artist Mary Phillips used Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Illuminating Argan Oil as a primer. “It quickly absorbed while leaving a glamorous effect on the skin,” she told Us. Phillips then layered on Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #7. “It has a super dewy, natural appearance,” she said.

10959870_436503206497896_317966401070464124_n

To give Kendrick “that sexy Parisian women’s hair,” stylist Craig Gangi curled her hair in 1-1/2-inch sections, then combed through them with his fingers. For even more volume and dry texture, he spritzed Unite Texturiza before finishing with Unite Session Max Spray.

Best Dressed from the 2014 Grammy’s!

Red carpet season continues and up now, the 2014 Grammy Awards. The night is typically filled with daring looks, ones of a unique spirit, and really just a mix of so much — it can be sexy, fun, flirty, the sky is the limit! Here are my fave looks of the evening, ENJOY!

katy-perry-valentino-couture-grammys-red-carpet-best-dressed-h724

KATY PERRY

The Grammy’s seem like the perfect time for a different mix of gowns — risky, unique, etc. So for me, for this year, Katy gets props for this literal musical # she selected for a gown — a cream-colored, silk tulle gown from Valentino’s Spring 2014 Couture Collection. She paired with this look some great burgundy jewelry pieces by Ivy – spinel & diamong earrings and rings. You will also notice a wonderful nail gloss as well; you have to think of everything, right! And so Katy is wearing CoverGirl Outlast Nail Gloss in Everbloom, in a bubblegum pink hue.

TAYLOR SWIFT

Taylor has a very well put together look — a form-fitting, short-sleeved, gold lamé gown by Gucci Premiere, which is comprised of a crystal mesh overlay & gemstone detailing at the neckline, arms, & waist. I mean there is very little to dislike about a gown with such clean lines, except I think I read Tay said it was a bit scratchy! She completed her chic look with complimentary jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz — diamond drop earrings & a diamond ring & Jimmy Choo heels.

taylor-swift-earrings            taylor-swift-ringtaylor-swift-3-290BTW, T. Swift also looks great in her performance look for “All Too Well”! She is wearing a nude sheer overlay Alberta Ferretti dress with a jeweled & sheer bodice. She completes her look with matching nude Arika Nerguiz heels and Cathy Waterman earrings.

NANCY O’DELL

I often do not know every designer detail when I do my best dressed lists and Nancy is the one for me this time. But really, it doesn’t matter. Regardless, this is a stunning and sexy mini and hey, at the Grammy’s, you are free to show the stems! This is such a fun look with the printed sequins and complete with shimmery pointed-toe pumps. Job well done!

1390778080_bonnie-mckee-560_640

BONNIE MCKEE

Ahhhh!! I love Bonnie McKee and I had no clue she co-penned “Roar”. So on top of a great song, she then pulls of a great look for the Grammy’s and I love it!! She looks glamfab in this sapphire blue gown by Memeka by Gustavo Cadile, which comes complete with a full train. So happy for this gal; she deserves it!

1390782979_miranda-lambert-560_640

MIRANDA LAMBERT

Miranda looks glamorous and effortlessly chic in this popping red, plunging neckline gown by Pamella Roland. The delicate satin twist at the waist is a perfect touch! She keeps in the “red” family by using a burgundy Judith Leiber clutch. But for the jewelry she mixes it up — silver bracelets & dramatic earrings by Kimberly McDonald for Forevermark.

She doesn’t go overboard with her accessories for this look either as she is wearing a stunning pair of Stephen Webster “Deco haze” green agate earrings with black and white pave diamonds.
