Grammys Award 2006 Fashion

Admittedly, the Grammys have never exactly been the most fashionable and glam event of the year, but this year I must say, I'm impressed. Especially when compared to last year. Most of the stars played it safe with classic one piece dresses-which was really quite boring, but a few did make an effort to be creative and the result was stunning.
My favourite outfits were from Beyonce and Alicia Keys. Both were very slinky and glam, but I think I'm going to hand the prize of best dressed to Alicia Keys in her Armani Prive dress, because she made the most improvement since last year.
And then there are Teri Hatcher and Christina Milian. The headlines have all admired Teri Hatcher's Jean Paul Gaultier dress as the best one in the whole show, but I beg to differ. Its nice, but its not that irresistible. And I just find Christina's Max Azria Atelier dress very interesting. Its a thin line between looking skanky or sexy, but I think she has managed to look elegant here.

I also thought that Kelly Clarkson's Max Azria Atelier (wow they must be sponsoring a LOT of starlets this event) black dress was quite flattering. Different from the usual punk rock star image I somehow see her in. And Eva carried this blue dress well-it can potentially be a fashion disaster.

Next season's white also seemed to be a very popular color, as seen on Mary J Blige and Ciara in her Alberta Ferretti dress. Mary looks like she's playing tennis the glam way. But Ciara looks godess like.

For all those pregnant celebs out there, it is definitely a good thing that the empire waist has been so popular recently, because they are so completely flattering on pregnant women. They barely look like they're pregnant. This is very well demonstrated by Gwen here. I'm not that much a fan of this leopard printed dress, but it is very Gwen.

I have no idea what Madonna is trying to achieve here. And from the looks of her expression, she doesn't know either.

Teri Hatcher, a CELEBRITY?! Woman should do what she's best at and start giving me some new Desperate Housewives episodes. I'm sick of all the repeats. But srsly. She's showing up everywhere and it's bugging the hell out of me. It's like mom showing up at the mall, rockconcert, and dance. Btw, she looks like a swamp in the night.

All those celebrities need to step off the whole "greek goddess" stage. Whatever Kate Moss does, they take it and rape it. Christina Milian looks cute.

Ps. Gwen ruined herself.

madonna should end her career just right about....


Let us remember you as you were. We know you didn't have much education when you were young, so we let the whole Kabbalah thing pass by. But now! Copying New York Misshapes clubbers who wear swimsuits and tights(who also don't really dance)!

You've ruined it.

I thought Beyonce (WOW), Alicia Keys and Teri Hatcher's dresses were gorgeous. Not such a big fan of the others though.

I think award shows for actresses always have better fashion than those for singers for some odd reasons.

Alicia Keys is my favourite, but I´m quite disappointed about Madonnas taste in the last year. Sign of getting old? YUK!

Alicia Keys looked wonderful. It's her best look at the Grammy's that I've seen.

You are right that the Grammy's don't have the same fashion cache that other (film) awards do. I think actors are usually very conscious of how they look (with all that screen time and close angles and such), but musicians focus on their sound more than appearance. The exception to that is singers; we are a picky lot. We like to be comfortable in rehearsals and all that, but when we are up for our performances, we wanna know we look as good as we (hope) we sound.

Also the Grammy's are another opportunity for musicians to reinforce their "attitude" to their audience, so some degree of fashion sense (or nonsense) is tied to that.

I totally admire Gwen, despite my differing fashion tastes, because she is authentic, but the dye job on her dress conjures thoughts of someone using the train to clean algae from a long-neglected swimming pool.

I'm curious to know what headlines you were reading that said Teri Hatcher's dress was one of the best. Everything I read said the thing made their retinas explode. Not in a good way, either.

I agree with anon...I thought Teri Hatcher's dress was appalling...she walked out to present and out of my mouth tumbled..."OMG, waht was she thinking"...sorta reminded me of Gwyneth's 2002 Oscar's dress...

Alicia Keys really has come a long way since last year! Teri Hatcher's dress might have looked good on someone else, Madonna is trying to invent a new style and is failing miserably...

All those dresses are GORGEOUS. Though i have to say I dont see the big deal on Teri's dress. Less see-through would've been better. And where do i even begin with Madonna's...

I really don't like Teri Hatcher's dress. Underwear is meant to be worn, not seen. The top of the dress, along with her pouffy hair, makes her look even more skeletal. I think she should have gone with less busy shoes...the dress is so messy that the shoes seem to interfere. But Christina Milian really was able to pull off that dress.

Alicia Keys looked very classy and beautiful. Christina Milian had a close call with that dress - it was almost whorish but she pulled it off by walking with confidence and not over accessorizing. Terri Hatcher is reminding me of the Mom that tries to live vicariously through her daughter by wearing her clothes (and the daughter doesn't have good taste either)- ick! She needs to get more comfortable with acting her age and dressing it too!
