Red Carpet - Grammy Awards 2013

Red Carpet Fashion
The Grammy Awards 2013

The biggest music event of year was held last in Los Angeles, where the red carpet was collectively calm and fashion disaster free for a change. Here is the Grammy 2013 roundup.

Pants in Place
Jeannie Mai looked suave in a metallic tailored blazer, teamed with white shirt, black skinny pants and gold necklace. TV presenter Rocsi Diaz took the plunge in a white v-neck jumpsuit with wide-leg pants. Kaley Cuoco challenged glamour rock in an embellished blazer by Amen, paired with a white tee and leather leggings. Janelle Monae kept to her androgynous style in a matador style tuxedo suit by Moschino. Beyonce pleasantly surprised me by not wearing a fancy gown but instead opted for a sophisticated black and white jumpsuit by Osman.

Feminine Frocks
Taylor Swift rarely puts a style foot out of place, the country singer looked stunning in a white pleated J.Mendel gown with sliver strap detail. Ukrainian export Mika Newton was winsome in a delicate white embellished gown by Aiisha. Australian songstress Kimbra made an extravagant style statement in a gold and ice blue tulle confection by Jaime Lee Major. Newcomer Kady Z also went white in cap-sleeved dress with sheer paneled bodice.

Red Alert

Skyler Grey picked out a glistening red gown by Armani. Natasha Bedingfield looked stunning in a sponge-print Emerson red dress with side cut-outs and metallic belt. My best dressed of the night, Rihanna was ravishing in a scarlet red Azzedine Alaia chiffon gown with sheer halter bodice. Britt Nicole wore a strapless crimson peplum frock with layered rows of fabric.

Cavalli Army
 Carly Rae Jepson, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert were all dressed by Robert Cavalli in dark shaded and glamorous evening gowns.

Higher Hemlines

Tv presenter Carrie Keagan caught my eye with her dazzling pair of PVC colour-blocked Christian Louboutin sandals. She wore a bright yellow high-low hem dress. Karlie Kloss looked chic in a turquoise cut-out mini dress by Michael Kors. Faith Hill cropped her length in an attractive little black sheer sleeve dress by J.Mendel. Alexa Chung brought on the charm in a sweetly floral printed dress in lemon and cream by Red ValentinoAdele wore a playful floral embroidered dress by Valentino, along with printed shoes.

Green Card
Florence Welch went futuristic (or alienistic rather) in an iridescent bottle green Givenchy gown featuring self-shaded studded spikes on the bodice. Katy Perry wore an apple mint fitted long-sleeved dress by Gucci with ornate neck detailing. Solange Knowles made a splendid appearance in shimmering emerald green, her cap-sleeved gown is by Ralph & Russo. She added a pop of orange with studded Louboutin pumps.

Femme Fatale
Jennifer Lopez showed off her best leg in a one-shouldered Anthony Vaccarello gown with gold accessories and Tom Ford heels. Alicia Keys donned a low-neck cut-out gown by Azzedine Alaia. Kelly Rowland was daring in a black fishtail gown with sheer panelling by Georges Chakra. Model Chrissy Teigen picked a sassy sheer midriff dress with high split by Joy Ciocci.

Who is your Best or Worst Dressed at the 2013 Grammy Awards.


P.S. The BAFTA Awards also took place last night, if you missed the red carpet coverage, catch it here.

There was so much fabulous fashion on Grammys this year! Beyoncé is my absolute favorite: she looked so incredibly chic, glamorous and classy in that pantsuit! Wonderful look! I also loved Taylor Swift, Adele and Rihanna: it was so nice seeing Riri in something "normal" and elegant for a change :) Not a big fan of J.Lo's "leg slip" however. Which one was your winner, Sam?

The first lady I've seen from Grammy this morning was Rihanna and I was just amazed by her look!! I think she looks so perfect and love her hairstyle so much! Hope she keeps hair long since suits her!!! Also Taylor Swift, who is always one of my fav, is so wonderful in white, seems a fairy!! Great choice of Beyoncè to wear a jumpsuit! She seems lost weight, I think is just perfect on it! While I really dont like J.Lo! Though she is one of my fav singer/dancer, dislike that gown and hairstyle on her! Also I dont like Florence Welch and Adele!! Kisses my dearest!!

S said...

Fenìminine frocks is my fav, Taylor looks stunning in that dress!

I loved Taylor in J. Mendel, Rihanna in Alaia and Kelly in Chakra.

Gabriele said...

My best were definitely Beyonce, Solange, Rihanna and JLO!
Worst would have to be - Adele. That dress did not do any favors for her in my opinion!

love the grammys! i saw rihanna's gown all over the internet - she looked so beautiful. also like kelly rowland's outfit:) beyonce looked amazing, but i think she could have worn something more catchy, i mean it's the grammys, right?
i'm not sure about jlo's outfit... and florence welch, omg, what is that??

I was so sad I missed the red carpets. Loved Rihanna's and Kimbras. I thought Adele could have picked another dress.

fluff and fripperies said...

Taylor Swift wins it for me! I wasn't a fan of Adele's dress either

Gina said...

Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood are so classy and gorgeous! Always!

I liked Kimbras. Fun with a dress that stands out.=)

Anouka said...

Great to see all these outfits on your page. Very inspirational but one really stood out for me: Florence Welch!


LUXESSED

Homeandfood said...

I liked solange, kimbra and Katy perry. Beautiful outfits.

And I agree on beyonce, considering this wasn't her night it was very tasteful and elegant to have her reign it in so much and save the extravagance for when she scoops another six gongs.

Take care love! Hope you are well xx

Bailey Schneider said...

Rihanna takes the cake! She looked so strikingly classy and beautiful!

I must say, I like the pants trend on the red carpet - very different - even though there was more than 1!

Much love, Bailey from Vanilla Blonde

Cinnamon and White Chocolate said...

OMG! Great outfits. First, girls in pants look soooooo great! Red dresses look awseome (specially Rihanna who I don't personally like that much). Black gowns are fantastic, specially J.Lo and K. Rowland. And I am sorry to say, but Adele should deffinitely loose some (a lot!) weight. Being fat is not something we should all embrace and accept, it brings disases, it is not healthy. I don't understand why we allways talk in a way: oooo, you should accept yourself, no mather what... That's true, but if we accept this fatness does it mean that we should accept the fact that we could get diabetes, or blood pressure disseases or whatever. Sorry, but I am so pissed of by this subject, it means that I am what, an idiot, for living healthy and working out? It is much easier to sit in front of telly and eat all the pizza you can find. And than to accept yourself.
P. S. This is not in any case an insult to you or your blog or your picking Adele in this post, if I wrote in my native language maybe my point would be much clearer! So, hope you don't take this in a wrong way! Kiss, Ilina

Rihanna is just amazing here... she looks like 5 years ago!

Kacie Cone said...

Rihanna is without a doubt my favorite! I was so shocked when I saw her, I love that she went for something classy over that weird stuff she usually does and I love her hair like that! My least favorite is probably adele, that is just not the best pattern for her!

blackberryfashion said...

Wow!! Amazing dresses :) My favourite is Taylor Swift!!

Giveaway Firmoo – 7 winners!

Vannessa@Luxuria said...

I LOVED all the black gowns i.e JLO, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Rowland and Beyonce (altho' hers was a jumpsuit ;-)
I thought Adele looked horrendous. Having said that I don't agree with Cinnamon + White Chocolate above; I don't necessarily agree that it's all about the size.For me it's about dressing so that you flatter your size. If someone is happy with their size as Adele clearly is, then it's not for others to judge her or anyone else who is overweight. Being overweight is not only about over-eating (that's an assumption). It can be caused by a multitude of reasons-both emotional or medical. We all have free will. Those that want to eat healthily and those that are not so concerned- each to their own. Until we've walked in another's shoes we can't comment on someone's lifestyle choices. Just my humble opinion. p.s I am not over-weight ;-)

CHARME e CHIQUE said...

wow. what a beautiful dresses...

JanM ♥ said...

You are SOOOO good at putting things together like this!!! I really love Faith Hills get up on that day. The hair was sooo perfect for the dress!

Ali Hval said...

In an attempt to narrow it down to my favorite of all, I have to go with Kimbras... you described it so perfectly, too-ice and sparkles and gold and gorgeous. That has got to be one of the most stunning dresses I have ever seen!

Josie said...

Wow Rihanna! Beyonce is wearing something I'd expect to see Solange in and Solange is wearing a Beyonce outfit, they have pleasantly surprised me! xxx

Adeola Naomi said...

They are so many best dressed!
I love RIRI, Kelly Rowland and Taylor Swift's looks.
I am in love with Solange's dress too, so many amazing choices.
For me worst dress is JLo what was she thinking? and Adele look rather unflattering too.
Thank you for your sweet comment and I hope you had a lovely wkend.

Riza said...

Katy and J.Lo! Wow. Kimbra looks like a fairy here!:)

Bravoe Runway said...

Hmmm....IDK. I have to say, I was not super impressed with any of these looks. Generally speaking, I think of Grammy's as a less formal occasion so long gowns definitely wouldn't be my first pick. And Kaley Cuomo's dress makes her look like she's grown a bad case of warts...lol

Bravoe Runway said...

I mean Florence Welch*

Sunny & Star said...

I really like a few of these looks, but most of them I do not like. My favorites are from the top row they are Jeannie and Kaley's looks.

I always look forward to your red carpet posts! My very favorite of the night was Rihanna...I thought she looked stunning in all 3 looks! I also really liked Karlie Kloss, Taylor Swift (maybe the only time I will ever admit this), Kelly Rowland, and Beyonce.

Wow, Carly Rae looked gorgeous on her dress, it really reflected her eyes and looked stunning. (A best dressed vote from me for her!) Rihanna really is back, her dressed look so fabulous on her, she really can rock any color. I actually really like Katy Perry's dress as well. even thought it's pretty boobalious, the color looks really pretty with her long dark hair. It seems like it was a pretty good turn out this year for everyone, no one's dress really stands out as being really awful.

Kimbra is the best :) and florence the worst!
