As much as we love the performances during the GRAMMYs, our favorite part is seeing who wore what on the red carpet. We must admit, this year was a little disappointing because everyone seemed to be more subdued than normal. There weren’t any of the outrageous outfits we have seen in years past. No Gaga walking around in a meat dress and no J-Lo with a beyond-plunging neckline or even a Lil Kim with a few strands of fabric in just the right places. No, none of those theatrics this year. That does, however mean there were a lot of well-dressed stars and for that we are thankful!
See some of our favorites (and not-so-favorites) below:
Taylor Swift is currently the reigning queen of the red carpet. The girl never misses and this dress with her deep lilac shoes was no exception. This was hands down our favorite look of the night.
Jennifer Hudson was stunning in a white fitted, strapless sheath with simple accessories. That lipstick!
We love that Gwen Stefani chose a pantsuit for the red carpet. She looked amazing in it!
Dierks Bentley chose a lighter suit for the GRAMMYs and we love it! But, Dierks Bentley. He just can’t go wrong no matter what he is wearing.
Mary J. Blige looked ethereal in silvery-gray dress. This classy dress was an excellent choice for her!
Katherine McPhee was a little more daring than normal, but we loved her in this figure-skimming coral gown.
And now for our not-so-favorites:
Madonna. Oh Madge. While it is impressive that you look the way you do at 56, it’s time to start dressing a little more age appropriate. And cover up. No one wants to see your cleavage (or other parts!) anymore.
Maybe the most surprising miss of the night was Rihanna. She was dressed like a 17 year-old prom queen from 1988. Sorry Ri-Ri, usually we love your red carpet looks but this one failed to impress.
Sia. There are no words to describe this hair. We get it, we know she never faces the crowd or camera when singing, but this is just crazy! Voice of an angel, hair of well, um, we aren’t really sure.
