The Grammys last night were everything short of amazing. I wasn’t able to catch the action straight away so was resigned to watch the fashion highlights and the action unfold on other sites like Twitter where everyone was on about the shocks of the night. I was very much disappointed! There is only a handful of dresses that I had any opinion about whatsoever…and that’s not a good thing! So here are a few of my favourite moments from the Grammys (style and otherwise) 2014!
The bright dresses of the night really stood out and there were a few lovely choices. Giuliana Rancic has been getting it so right this award season and this orange Alex Perry gown is no different. The coral dress gives her a really beautiful shape and it was a solid choice to wear orange. Ariana Grande looked adorable as ever in a black floral Dolce & Gabbana gown that was a gorgeous, vintage style on her and the floral pattern gave it that real 50s vibe. Nominee Tamar Braxton looked amazing in that figure-hugging red gown that everyone has been talking about and I’m now coveting this gown!
Monochrome and metallics were recurring themes…AGAIN! However, this time things were a little different and the dresses were a little bit special. Sarah Hyland looked gorgeous in a Emilio Pucci gown that was very reminiscent of her age and its short flirty length made her look great! I hate to say it but Taylor Swift looked phenomenal in this Gucci Premiere gown, it suits her down to the ground and the metallic hue is bang on trend. Kelly Osbourne looked gorgeous in this caped Badgley Mischka dress and the embellished shoulders were a genius idea for her body shape.
As always, there are a few fashion misses. Sara Bareilles looked a little like Big Bird in this Blumarine gown, it might work if the dress was all one length but the train just threw this piece off. Alicia Keys was spot on with the colour of her Armani Prive gown but the shape didn’t flatter her figure the best it could and the slit was too low. Anna Kendrick’s Azzaro gown was both too safe and too risky at the same time – the colour was drab but her cleavage was stuffed into it! Rita Ora’s Lanvin gown looked like a bad Quality Street wrapper but I’ll give her extra points for how hot Calvin Harris looked! Katy Perry’s Valentino Couture dress was a risk worth taking but the colour and cut didn’t suit her at all. A deeper colour would have been a much better choice!
Not a particularly great fashion statement but this hat took over the Grammys. Not only was everyone talking about it but the hat even got its own Twitter account. I’m not quite sure whether he was trying to look like a Canadian Mountie or Yogi Bear but this ensemble did give me a giggle. Also loved the really poignant moment during Macklemore’s song ‘Same Love‘ where 33 couples – both straight and gay – were married by Queen Latifah…very emotional but from some of the comments made, the world still has a long way to go in terms of same-sex marriage! This world, huh!
