Grammy Fashion- The Red Carpet That Is Thankfully Never Boring
The red carpet that won’t put you to sleep
It may seem a bit not (fashion) politically correct, but I cannot bare to see one more celebrity looking like a runaway prom queen or mother of the bride on the red carpet. Right in the nick of time before we have to start power-loading the style caffeine for Oscar time, comes the Grammy’s… or fashion’s answer to take a risk and shine.
Nicki Minaj kept her signature kewpi doll kooky on and raised the bar to hugh to style in a leopard Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci "ensemble" with matching matching leopard printed belt, gloves, leggings and shoes.
Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine is a true "downtown" fashion girl and did not disappoint in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci long dress in nude stretch tulle embroidered in front with matt sequins in shades of pale beige and behind with vermillion geometric hand cut sequins and glass tubes. Gold embroidered leather shoes.
Hillary Scott, from Lady Antebellum, wearing a Roberto Cavalli strapless black gown with embroidered belt– a covetable look for the non-celebrity skinny minnie set.
Katy Perry wore three Giorgio Armani looks throughout the evening. A custom-made Giorgio Armani evening dress with white feather angels wings for the red carpet, and in celebration of Valentine’s Day for her live performance, Katy wore an also custom-designed pink dress confection with a corset top embellished with pink shimmering rock crystals and a full mini skirt highlighted by an explosion of hearts embellished with Swarovski crystals. The look is completed with a pair of custom-made Giorgio Armani platform shoes that feature a lucite heel and an array of hearts.
Although not really a fan of Miley Cyrus and her previous fashion choices, she absolutely did hit the fashion mark wearing a Roberto Cavalli sequin embroidered tiger print gown.
