The 55th Annual Grammy Awards aired last night and there were some looks that I just can't get over...in a good way! But of course, every red carpet has its flaws, and there were a few starlets who completely missed the mark.
Let's start out with the best of the best. By far, the most gorgeous woman on the red carpet was Rihanna. I'm not usually a Rihanna fan, but how can you not be a Rihanna fan when you see her in this crimson red Azzedine Alaia dress. She was a true show-stopper with her hair in loose, natural waves and stunning makeup. She channeled her inner girly-girl side on the red carpet and on the stage when she performed twice. But her red carpet look was no doubt the best of the night.
Runner-ups for best dressed included Carrie Underwood in a simple but detailed Roberto Cavalli gown, Katy Perry in a mint green Gucci gown, Taylor Swift, looking white hot in J. Mendel, and Kelly Rowland who walked the red carpet with loads of confidence in a Georges Chakra Couture gown. I know that Kelly's dress may be a little controversial, but I think it's just daring enough without showing everything off.
And of course, there were those who left me scratching my head and wondering why. Jennifer Lopez stuck out to my first...or rather her leg stuck out to me, literally. J Lo channeled her inner Angelina Jolie and showed a bit too much leg in a black Anthony Vaccarello gown with an extremely high slit. Other misses included Kimbra in a custom Jamie Lee dress, Lisa D'amato reminded me of a pirate in an interesting choice for the Grammys, and finally, D'manti in a mermaidesque Claudio Milano dress.
Last but not least is Alicia Keys. I wasn't blown away by her dress, but it also wasn't horrible. Then I realized that her dress looked very familiar. After a quick look at the gown that she wore to the Superbowl last week, I was shocked that the dress's bottoms were nearly the same. Alicia wore an oxblood Azzedine Alaia dress to the Superbowl Pregame show, and a black Azzedine Alaia dress with cut-outs to the red carpet at the Grammys. I could understand if she wanted to use the same designer, but to use basically the same dress is a bit repetitive.
Who did you think was the best dressed? Do you think Alicia made a mistake in choosing that dress?
