Grammy Fashion 2008

I realize that this review may come as a bit late, since the Grammy was last week and I almost skipped it this year, because honestly, the Grammy's fashion simply do not compare to the fashion of the other awards. But then, I thought: this was something we do every year (almost like a tradition!) and since we've had a bit of an awards drought this year..... I should really do it anyway. Better late then never is not a cliche for no reason. Anyway, here goes:
The clear winner for me at first glance was Alicia Keys in this GORGEOUS gown by Armani Prive. I just LOVE the vibrant rich royal blue color and the elegant design. This look is Oscar Worthy- except for the pink egg shaped clutch she's holding. Or is that a clutch? Maybe its a sidekick? In any case, a nice beaded satin even bag would've completed the look.
Sharp electric blue is clearly THE color on the red carpet this year. Witness Rihanna in this adorable creation by Zac Posen. Though obviously color is not the only factor to a winning look. Corinne Bailey Rae's Luella dress is just a whee bit too show girl-esque for my taste.

Another winning blue that night was Nelly Furtado in an Arthur Mendonca draping dress. It is simple and goddess-like. Natasha Bedingfield's purple drape dress by Reem Arca is also very pretty. She even shows off the intricate three fold design here in this pose! I'm on the edge with Beyonce's dress from Elie Saab. Its very.... fantasy, Cinderella-like with an edgy twist, what with the darking bodice piece. I can't decide if its a daring success or a beauty pageant dress gone wrong. The pale blue color doesn't help. And Carrie Underwood's floral dress from Murad is...nice. Its not a bad dress, but not fabulous either. The floral pattern just doesn't seem to go well with the red carpet.
Maybe the guys would appreciate this more, but for me, Fergie near bursting from her Calvin Klein dress is not attractive to me. Furthermore while the yellow dress is simply designed and elegantly tailored, its just.....boring. And as for Miley Cyrus, from what I can see of the white Celine dress, it looks very cute and suits her. Unfortunately her hair and shoes drags the whole look down.

I thought Nelly Furtado's look was dreadful. Wrong accessories, wrong hair color, wrong EVERYTHING. Also Miley Cyrus' make up is way to much.

I thought Alicia Keys' dress was GORGEOUS as well...except for that ugly egg-shaped "clutch". I love Rihanna Zac Posen dress as well, and also Natasha Bedingfield's elegant purple dress. As for Miley, I agree that the hair and shoes are pretty dreadful. She's also wearing too much makeup.

you missed my favourite of the night... brooke hogan! she looked amazing and her dress was beautiful :]

miley needs to dress/look age appropriate. her makeup is way too heavy, her hair doesnt suit her colouring and her dress is too "old"/serious.

i didn't like nelly furtado's accessories. everyone knows you cannot wear a combination of chunky necklace & chunky earings. pick one or the other girl!

beyonce looks terrible. the dress makes her look all out of proportion. it's disappointing because she usually looks fantasic.

rhianna looked soooo super cute (and i don't even like her much hehe!). her dress was fun and playful, perfect for the grammies.

pretty much same for corrine bailey rae, my only criticism is the shoes. too boring.

Clearly color is not everything when you look at Nelly Furtado's dress. She looks hideous. Although, I wouldn't mind using her dress as some bed sheets. Looks comfy.

I definitely agree that Carrie Underwood's dress is cute but that it's not red carpet-y enough. I think if it was a solid rich color it would have that stunner look. She's just lucky she's absolutely gorgeous and has a super hot bod.

Beyonce was a little of a disappointment. She's usually got so much personality and blim-BLAM to her dresses... Maybe this year she thought she could turn it down a knotch and this was her way of doing it with the pale blue. Who knows..

Miley sort of looks like she's trying to be Janis Dickenson in that picture. You know, with the heavy eye make up, extremely dark hair, and poofy lips. Doesn't work.

As far as Alicia Keys.. I'm really having trouble apperciating the dress as everyone else because while it looks good, it doesn't look like her. Not to mention, I can't get that screechy song out of my head when I see her and I get a headache. But it just seems that she's trying to be old school red carpet and to me pieces just don't fit.
