The Grammys are always a memorable night for music. But the award show has also become known as an event where celebrities let loose and take fashion risks. So who looked the wildest this year? Who played it too safe? Who was the ultimate style diva? Check out those and more in Hollyscoop’s 2010 edition of Grammy Fashion Recap!
Nude Alert: A big trend of the evening was the nude look. And while it worked for Heidi Klum, who rocked a Pucci mini that featured sequined stripes and a whole lot of cleavage, most ladies didn’t pull it off. Beyonce’s Stéphane Rolland gown failed to impress us, though her performance dress during “If I Were a Boy” was hot hot hot! And Katy Perry proved that even the smallest of people can look frumpy with her Luna Floral Sequin Zac Posen. In her case, less would have been more.
Get a New Stylist!: Newcomer Ke$ha can’t be totally to blame for her red carpet flapper look. The girl has exploded on to the scene faster than Susan Boyle! But the gold dress and chunky T-straps are unacceptable, even for a new artist. We were expecting her to show up drunk on Jack and in a leather bustier. Come on Ke$ha! Britney Spears, on the other hand, should know better! Will she ever learn? Brit donned a sheer black dress over a black body suit by Dolce & Gabbana. But at this point, we’ll take her smiling any day!
Just right: Fergie is no stranger to red carpet mishaps, but she’s been hitting the nail on the head at every single show this year! Last night was no exception as Mrs. Duhamel showed off her lady lumps in a simple royal blue Pucci, leaving the outlandish costume for the stage. Glee’s Lea Michele could have picked a different color, but her saucy Romona Keveza single-shoulder frock showed off her gams that have been hiding this whole time. Gleek no longer!
Wild Thing: It’s no surprise that Lady Gaga wore the most interesting get-up of the evening. We’ve seen much wilder from her, but we like that she toned down the crazy just a touch out of respect of the biggest night in music. Don’t get us wrong! This spacelike Armani Prive paired with her yellow weave is still our pick for wildest red carpet look.
Safety: Um, isn’t Jennifer Hudson supposed to be a diva? Girlfriend looks amazing after having a baby less than a year ago, and we would have loved to see more! Instead, J-Hud bored us with her black Victoria Beckham Collection dress. At least she let the girls peek out a little!
Free Pass: You may not be a fan of Rihanna’s White Elie Saab gown that looked like it was devouring her neck. But in our books, Ri can do no wrong. We would have liked to see a few more of her infamous tattoos being showed off, but it seemed our good girl didn’t feel like going bad last night. And she still looked gorgeous!
#1 Diva: While we appreciate Taylor Swift’s attempt at ditching the Grecian style Disney dresses, her off- the shoulder teal Kaufman Franco mermaid gown was just too prommy for our liking. It was a whole lot of dress for that slender frame of hers! She won’t win the red carpet this year, but she is a Grammy winner! Getting our vote for best-dressed diva on the carpet is Mary J Blige. Girl’s still got it after all these years, and looked super confident in her fuschia Gucci cutout dress. Inside, Mary belted out “Bridge Under Troubled Water” with Andrea Bocelli in a strapless cobalt Roberto Cavalli that fit her like a glove.
