My Sunday was full of studying because my statistic and psychology professor decided to schedule our first exam on the same day. To say I was stressed is an under statement. I had to spend the majority of my afternoon and night studying, which meant I couldn’t spend all night watching the 2015 Grammy’s. I always enjoy watching this award show, because it recognizes great talent in the music industry.
Since I couldn’t spend my Sunday night watching the Grammy’s, I decided to only watch the red carpet special. I deserved a 2-hour study break, right? It was well worth it because watching the stars walk down the red carpet is my favorite part of any awards show.
Once again, most of the stars strutted down the red carpet in bedazzled and embellished dresses. Just like with every major award shows, I have picked out the best and worst looks. So keep on reading to see who made my list.
Gwen Stefani- Hands down, Gwen Stefani was my favorite look of the night. Her semi-sheer jumpsuit by Atelier Versace looked great on the red carpet. I love the fit of jumpsuit. The sheer design on top and the tailored bottoms created a perfect silhouette. I love how she paired her jumpsuit with bedazzled pumps and of course her pulled back hair and neutral makeup tied the whole look together.
Jessie J- The color black was a popular color on the red carpet and Jessie J rocked this Ralph and Russo semi-sheered dress with beaded embellishments. The dress showed the right amount of skin and had the right amount of bling. I loved how dramatic this look was and how she chose to wear dark makeup and a dark lip. This look was very edgy, which is what I like to see, especially at an awards show.
Katy Perry- After seeing Katy Perry’s lilac hair, I am so tempted to dye my hair a beautiful, lilac shade. Her purple do complimented her silver beaded fringe dress by Zuhair Mudrad. Perry’s dress was eye-catching. The color, the beads, the fringe, and the purple hair certainly made a statement at the Grammy’s.
Lady Gaga- I am a huge Lady Gaga fan. Recently, she has been working with Tony Bennett, producing a whole new genre of music. Since Gaga has been working with Bennett she has been wearing more sophisticated outfits, which in my opinion is a great look for her. Although I do miss her crazy costumes, especially that meat dress she wore at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, I have enjoyed seeing Gaga’s style transformation. With that being said, I loved her Brandon Maxwell dress she wore to this year’s Grammy’s. The dress was elegant, but still incorporated a plunging neckline and high slits. I loved how Gaga accessorized with emerald colored jewelry and emerald colored makeup.
Charli XCX- I respect Charli XCX for taking a risk, but I just don’t like the color of her Moschino suit. The pale pink color and bright pink bowtie just doesn’t do it for me. Instead, if the suit was more of a neutral color, I would have liked it better.
Taylor Swift- Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t entirely hate Taylor Swift’s dress, I just felt like it was too formal for the occasion. Her turquoise high-low dress by Elie Sab just looked too stiff. I loved the color of her dress, her earrings, shoes, and eye shadow, but for me it was way too much color all paired together.
Kim Kardashian- Is it just me or did Kim Kardashian’s dress look like a bedazzled bath robe? Her dress designed by Jean Paul Gaultier had too much bling, making it a very distracting choice for the red carpet.
Ariana Grande- Ariana Grande’s Versace gown confused me. What’s the point of that piece of silver fabric that just appears to be hanging on the dress? Although I liked the silver and white color combo, the hanging fabric just puzzled me.
Dare to be different
Rihanna- I decided to add a new category to this post, a dare to be different category and that goes to Rihanna. Kudos to Rihanna for being different. Yes, her dress was crazy, but that is why I like it. She was not afraid to wear something out of the ordinary. Sure her dress looks like a loofah or an ad for Pepto Bismol, but it did a good job grabbing people’s attention, considering everyone can’t stop talking about it. Rihanna shows people that fashion is all about stepping out of your comfort zone and expressing yourself. I hope Rihanna has inspired other stars to take more risks on the red carpet.
That concludes my best and worst dressed celebs for the 2015 Grammy’s. I am looking forward writing a similar post for the Academy Awards, which airs on Sunday, February 22nd. Can’t wait to see which celebs dressed to impress.
