60th GRAMMY AWARDS
The Grammy Awards held January 28th at Madison Square Garden New York was a star studded affair. Since we are in the midst of award season I have decided this year to cover these major fashion events. While the stars strut the stage and present and receive awards , I'm more interested in them strutting the red carpet. Moreover darlings I'm a star gazer and some of the best star gazing is at the Grammy Awards. Therefore I have been scanning the web to see who said who was the best dressed or worst dress.
First and foremost you can't judge the Grammy Awards with the same yardstick used to judge other red carpets. Since the Grammy Awards are a unique crowd , younger, hipper and more fashion forward they set a different standard. Therefore some of the critics have much more worst dressed than best dressed. While I never like to dwell on the worst dressed ,there is one winner in this category. In my opinion The Grammy Awards worst dress goes to, a fashion maven who should know better Heidi Klum . In spite of her great beauty Ms Klum looks like a washed up stripper. While some may have looked as bad but my expectations were higher for Heidi . However maybe later she was on her way to a suburban "50 Shades Of Grey " sex toy party.
THE GRAMMY AWARDS BEST DRESSED
THE GRAMMY AWARDS 2018 AND HOW TO LOOK LIKE THE BEST DRESSED
Darlings I've chosen the 5 best looks of the night and how you might channel the look . While you might not want to wear Lady Gaga's gown you may want to use it to inspire a look . Therefore let me guide you to find the inspired looks that will you feel like a star.
5 BEST LOOKS AT THE GRAMMY'S
The Queen of the Grammy Awards red carpet , proves that she still rules . Since The lady knows no bounds she again stunned me with this fabulous Armani Prive' gown. Moreover this gown features a lace top and full skirt. Together with chandelier earrings , sheer tights and platform shoes Gaga wowed everyone.
Therefore when considering the inspiration of this fabulous look you might focus firstly on the lace . Secondly I suggest looking at the silhouette. While I'm not suggesting this massive skirt a full skirt would make the mark. Third combine it all with black or perhaps a color. An inspired look is not a copy but the essence of the look.
Dedicated to traditional craftsmanship, PatBO incorporates couture techniques with a fearlessness to experiment. The Brazilian label is known for its playful, feminine creations and richly detailed embroidery. While this stunning dress does not copy the Armani Prive' it does have a lot of the same elements.
Italian craftsmanship is at the heart of Ermanno Scervino but the approach to style is international. The brand delivers relaxed but refined silhouettes for a modern, urban look. In like manner this dress conjures the vibe of Lady GaGa's . In fact this dress is a young hip version that could easily be worn to the Grammy Awards.
See by Chloé is the epitome of youthful charm combining soft toned ready to wear and contemporary bohemian accessories. Since few of us will have need for a huge black ball gown, again I have chosen a dress that implies the same feeling. In this case this youthful dress is ideal for so many occasions and at a great price.
Paying it forward to the color of the year "ULTRA VIOLET", the Most Girls singer wore these glamorous boots from Alexandre Vauthier. Moreover Hailee's stunning white dress was created by the same designer. In my opinion a perfect dress for the 21-year-old fashionista . For one thing this clean lined dress is elegant, and youthful in it's simplicity. Therefore to emulate this look pay attention to the clean silhouette. Whether you wear purple ,red or yellow boots it's about making a statement.
. Striking in it's simplicity, this relaxed silhouette is beautiful, Therefore this stunning dress does resemble the dress that Hailee wore .
Similarly this white dress by Christian Siriano is a slightly different take on the same silhouette , Furthermore this dress has the added details of the ruffles which are more a personal preference . In my opinion both dresses offer a very similar look .In addition Hailee would look equally good in either dress. Equally important this white silk crepe ruffled strapless dress is a great youthful summer look.
Camila went for an old-Hollywood glamour gown giving us hot red on the red carpet. The" Havana" singer wore a form-fitting red silk gown by Vivienne Westwood. However this strapless dress looked as though it was held up by magic. In fact I might not recommend wearing a red dress on the red carpet, but this crisp dress was a stand out. While bright I advocate that every girl wear a brilliant red dress at less once, red is the color of passion, strength and love. Therefore red has an energy that excites. The fabulous fitted silhouette and the beautiful rusching give this dress that fiamenco feel. When trying to incarnate this dress go first for the color and second for the fit.
As can be seen this red off shoulder ruffled evening gown from Badgley Mischka is a show stopper. In essence this gown creates the same feel as the Westwood creation without the ticket. For this reason if you have an event where this dress would be appropriate scoop it up , this number will sell out.
This cute ruffled dress is from Alice and Olivia, a favorite brand of mine . While at first glance this dress may not have much in common with the Viviene Westwood gown, but look for the essence . Above all, this dress gives us a Latin fun vibe and a more youthful look. All in all buy this cheeky red dress and give out that great red passion and power.
Sachin & Babi Ahluwalia are on a quest to redefine eveningwear. Motivated by the needs of well-informed women who choose to live full lives, the designers pioneered a category of beautifully crafted feminine statement pieces that support women in their most important moments. With this in mind this dress is a great choice to mirror the original.
In the first place it is nothing new to see a woman in an evening suit, thanks YSL. However in this case we have one of the most stylish musical stars teamed up with a huge fashion brand.Therefore seeing Janelle wear this Dolce and Gabbana suit was no surprise . Since we have all seen a black suit , this one is made exceptional by the floral embellishments, creating a flourish of color. With this intention Janelle is like a matador in the ring. In fact you all know I'm a huge fan of Dolce and Gabbana. In this case either go to the original or look a like. Moreover forget the essence of the outfit and go for the quality, The embellishment and the fit, make this look .
Since this is a unique outfit my first choice is a Dolce and Gabbana Jacket . Why beat them when you can join them. While Dolce and Gabbana is the top of the game it does come with a hefty investment . However this investment will be well worth it as this gorgeous jacket is truly a signature piece.
Darlings this beautiful Dondup jacket is a great choice to mirror the look of Janelle Monae . Whether you see it as a copy or paying homage this jacket gives off the same vibe as the original. Therefore wear this stunning jacket to the office or to the party . Please check this one out, at that great sale price it will not last.
The Italian fashion house Moschino has been bringing witty and irreverent fashion to the Milan runways since 1984. In my opinion this is one great jacket and really meets the mark for emulating our red carpet look. Therefore you first need to find the jacket of this look but the details lie in styling.
The 27-year-old Brit pulled her glamorous, albeit dangerous, look together with old Hollywood style. Furthermore the glamour was elevated by her through back hair and chic matte red lips. Seeing Rita was like watching one of the red carpets from the 1950's Hollywood. Moreover Hollywood glamour is a personal favorite. Therefore to replicate the fabulous Ralph and Russo gown and Hollywood glamour of Rita takes effort. Since it is our objective to pay homage to and not to mimic we need to decipher elements. While I have found 3 great dresses to help emulate this look , remember it's all about the styling , the make-up, hair and attitude. Being glamorous isn't easy but it's worth it.
Darlings this fabulous Veronica Beard dress is just waiting for your Hollywood styling. Therefore the thing to stress her is your creativity in creating your own glamour. Here I've chosen a shorter dress, this dress has the same bod con silhouette .
This black sequined strapless gown from Marchesa Notte is a dress just waiting for your touches of Hollywood. However you look at it the real objective here is to convey glamour and I can see this great dress being very glamorous.
Coupled with glamour is elegance and this dress has both. When thinking of dresses for this category I thought of Paris- based Colombia designer Esteban Cortazar . Since I admire his work I am excited to show this confident dress with such elegant lines , I could see Rita Ora and many other stars wearing this exquisite creation.
THE GRAMMY AWARDS 2018- IN CONCLUSION
Darlings my musical tastes are vast and varied just like the dress we saw on the Grammy Awards Red carpet. However you saw the varied collection of outfits, you may or may not agree with my choices.
