The Best and Worst at the Grammys
Forget winning a gold gramophone, we’re handing out our awards for the winners and losers of last night’s Grammy Awards.
There was a palpable sense of anticipation on the red carpet at the Grammys last night. As the music world’s best and brightest gathered, the question on everyone’s lips was: what is Lady Gaga going to wear, and what is she going to do to open the show? Because this 23-year-old diva has set the bar so high with her over-the-top appearances (Blood! Shattered glass! Flaming pianos!) that she now defines the term must-see. And she didn’t disappoint last night. Her red carpet gown made her look like a post-apocalyptic Christmas tree angel and when it came to her opening number (with Sir Elton John) Gaga wore a glittering green number that made her sparkle more than a Twilight vampire (until she got fired up and smoky). While Beyonce and Taylor Swift were among the night’s winners, we came up with our own awards for the best and worst of the night.
There’s a New Red Carpet Diva in Town award: Lea Michele
She impressed us at the Golden Globes and the SAG awards, and last night, Glee’s Lea Michele made it official – she is a fashion force to be reckoned with. We’re happy she chose this blue one-shoulder Romona Keveza dress with its feather detailing over the white dress she was planning on wearing (she discovered at the last minute it was completely see-through!).
The Aliens Have Landed award: Heidi Klum, Beyonce & Kristen Bell
Was it just us, or did last night’s red carpet look like it was invaded by aliens? Heidi Klum, Beyonce and Kristen Bell (who are regular fashionistas in our book) looked like they were taking fashion advice from our friends in outer space with the bizarre necklines, geometric detailing, and odd cut of their dresses. Beyonce, in a Stephane Rolland dress, was even sporting hair bling in her hair for a far-out look.
Attack of the Killer Neckline award: Carrie Underwood
Speaking of bizarre necklines, was Carrie Underwood aware that her white Edition by Georges Chakra gown was trying to choke her?
