Gold, Silver, Gun-metal, pewter, bronze … if a celeb walking last nights red carpet at The Grammy Awards 2010 wasn’t wearing even a hint of metal on their dress, they clearly didn’t get the memo! Everyone from Gaga to Fergie had blinged up their red carpet look with lots of metal detailing! Beyonce was not only queen of the night for winning 6 coveted awards (breaking all previous records), but she also lead the red carpet trend of the night by dazzling in not one, but TWO gold dresses! I wasn’t so keen on Beyonce’s boxy, corded Stéphane Rolland red carpet dress (below), but loved her embellished mini dress (above).
And after Queen B, the one and only Lady G! She looked a-maz-ing last night in several Armani Prive creations; love it or hate it Gaga knows how to work the red carpet and always insures all eyes are on her! After Armani’s latest ‘Lunar’ couture collection in Paris a few weeks ago, it was clear to see where the inspiration for Gaga’s specially made pieces came from! Covered in sparkles and silver Gaga looked like a very stylish alien who crashed out of orbit (and if Gaga’s rebirth of the leotard tells us anything, the ‘Lunar Look’ is going to be big!)
Going For Gold
These ladies were looking fierce in their gold creations! Katy Perry was showing some serious heavy metal style last night in her hippy flower-power backless dress by Zac Posen (completely adorable!). Ke$ha looked hot to trot in her beaded flapper dress (if you ignore the brown shoes – ick – should have gone all out metal on that one, doll!) Keri Hilson also looked divine in her pale gold Dolce and Gabbana fishtail dress, with added bling from the waist detail and those rings (amazed she could lift her hand! Wowsers!). These three definitely deserve a gold star!
Ok, Ashanti isn’t known for her great style choices, so it’s not surprising to see her in a worst dressed section, but J Lo, love, what were you thinking? Two-face and Victor-Victoria are not style icons, I don’t care that it’s Versace, it’s just bad. And Heidi, some people may like her look, but I think it’s a bit try-hard and showing just a bit to much skin; we all know the rule Heidi, boobs or legs – never both! Top marks for that a-maz-ing figure though Heidi, and really like the shoes!
Pretty in Pewter
Pink, Miley Cyrus and Fergie all looked fashtastic in pewter and silver tones. Pinks ombre fishtail dress (and matching hair) is sophisticated and suits her petite frame perfectly, love love love! Miley looks fresh and like a teenager (not like a 40 year old) in her rock chick Hervé Léger dress and sultry auburn hair. And last but definitely not least is Fergie, looking fergalicious in an Emilo Pucci dress which she look smoking in (maybe ease up on the fake tan though Fergie!) Top marks ladies!
Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Ciara and Lea Michele kept it simple and stylish in black and white. Rihanna looked fantastic in Elie Saab in a dress that could have overwhelmed other celebs, with Riri showing yet again why she’s now a style icon. Jennifer Hudson gave it some Mad Men curves in this Victoria Beckham peplum dress – gorgeous! Ciara proves that Rihanna isn’t the only R’n’B princess who can rock a designer dress in this killer Givenchy creation (Britney Spears also tried to wear a sheer black dress with a leotard underneath, but it was so bad I can’t even bring myself to post the picture! The horror!)
Who was your best dressed of the night? I’m voting Gaga!
