RED CARPET: GRAMMYS 2013

So this year as I’m sure you’re aware there was a dress code for the Grammys that was put out by broadcaster CBS basically telling the attendees to cover up! This only added to the entertainment factor because luckily for us not everyone adhered to the rules. Let’s be honest though, it’s not like they would turn anyone away for showing some skin – because, well, they didn’t! I missed Ms Minaj on the red carpet though.

Beyonce showed up at the Grammys looking low key and FIRE at the same time in a chic monochrome jumpsuit from Osman. This thing fit her absolutely perfectly, her derriere was a picture!

Kelly Rowland looked amazing in Georges Chakra couture, that body makes us all green with envy every time we see it! Kells gave us a  a lil bit of skin through sheer cutouts; and finished the look with a classy up do.

Rihanna looked absolutely gorgeous in couture Azzedine Alaïa, made just for her for this occasion. Ri followed the new Grammy dress code by covering up, however she did this with red chiffon – giving the fans a lil nipple action. Nice!

Florence Welch got the memo about colour of the year being emerald green and decided to do it head to toe! The singer wore a custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown, with matching shoes, oh and a matching bag. The gown was fully sequinned out with a high split and, I want to say oversize studs, but then I also want to say those mini horn things on the back of a dinosaur. Not a bad choice for Flo, who has worn Givenchy to the last three Grammy award shows.

I feel like we have to call her JLo and/or “Jenny from the Block” on this one, so JLo gave us the “Jolie leg” in an asymmetric black gown by Anthony Vaccarello (sorry Zuhair, no Lopez love for this one). Can we just have a moment for the shoes though…OK thank you! JFTB follwed the CBS memo of no tits’n’ass so decided to pull out another body part “They didn’t say anything about leg! I thought I was being such a good girl!” she told Ryan Seacrest on E!

Taylor Swift arrived swan-like in J Mendel with a cute lil up do and full on bangs. Not much to say here, she looks delightful; a high profile break-up seems to do this gal good!

Adele ditched her signature black looking sweet in a red/pink/navy number from Maison Valentino, this looked nice in film, you could really see the beautiful details – but I don’t think it photographs too well. It would look uber (that’s right I said uber) sexy if it were more of a pencil skirt as opposed to A-line. Shoes look hot though.

Katy Perry was inspired by Priscilla Presley’s Grammy red carpet appearance in the 70s, the singer wore a mint green figure hugging gown from Gucci. The huge embellishment around the neckline as well as the huge gaping hole in the front really drew attention to a couple of her best assets. The look was finished off with a nice big blow out of her shiny raven locks.

Janelle Monae spruced up her “uniform” with a black boater hat, a cropped jacket with the tails in the back and gold embroidered lapels. The look was finished off with a lil black box clutch, and black peep toe heels. She’s so cool! Honestly!

Pharrell Williams aka “the man that doesn’t age” wore a gunmetal Lanvin tux with emerald green bow tie. I don’t have anything good to say about the girlfriend in the cigarette pants, tights (?), and mary jane heels – this could be really cute if taken apart and put back together somehow? I don’t know, but when your man is Parrell Williams, you’d better WERQ!!!

JT rocked his now famous Suit & Tie wearing Tom Ford on the red carpet, a full monochrome look; even the pocket square had a white outline!

There was a lot of speculation pre Grammys as to whether Chris Brown would show up to the actual award show, what with totaling the Porsche, and Ocean-gate. Well he did, and he showed up giving us PURE and “holier than thou” wearing head to toe white from Lanvin. A glimpse of the shoes made me question whether they were Dr Martens.

Estelle apparently designed this black/orange/grey printed ensemble herself with the assistance of her team, she did look cute I have to say. I love a cropped top with high waisted bottom and a sleek midriff. Does this mean she’ll now be attempting to dip her toe in the fashion pool?

Ashanti?! Where has she been hiding, what is she doing right now, why is she at the Grammys? The singer wore a black floral chiffon gown with a boobiliscious cutout and huge split that she chose to show everybody who couldn’t quite see it. Are they ankle boots I see?! No comment!

Who was your fave; who was your unfave?
