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!
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 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.
BTW, 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.
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!
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!
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.
ALICIA KEYS: Cobalt or royal blue gowns always grab my attention as it’s my fave color! Alicia doesn’t disappoint in her selection of this custom-designed, silk jersey gown, with a plunging neckline by Armani Prive. It features a black beaded Swarovski bow detail. 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.
Anna strikes the perfect balance of sexy and not going over-the-top in this blush pink Azzaro gown, which combines details of a crystal detailed bodice, impressive thigh-high slit, & caged bustier. She is perfectly accessorized with a Joan Hornig alligator cuff, Chimento diamond earrings, and metallic silver Barbara Bui pumps.
Ciara found the perfect way to dress fabulously while also in maternity style. She is wearing a skintight sparkly Emilio Pucci gilded rose-gold custom gown. Gown details include a laced-up neckline & an intricate tangle of sequined filigrees.
NATASHA BEDINGFIELD: Natasha is wearing a tangerine colored gown with a loose blouse that is by Christian Siriano. This is a very minimalist look in a jersey drape, but very modern as well. She does a a great mix with metallics and gold accessories by using this shimmery Emm Kuo clutch and Samantha Wills jewelry.
I have to include at least one dapper guy on my list, right! And tonight, that one such guy is Hunter Hayes. He looks very handsome in this Tom Ford suit, sans tie, love it!
