So the Grammy Awards were last night…
..I was out, so I didn’t get a chance to watch. I heard they were fire!
I had to check out the red carpet for fashion fun…and was a bit disappointed:
Beyonce is unequivocally gorgeous, and impeccably stylish in most cases, but this chiffon sequin concoction screamed “Princesse Barbie” to me.

It seemed more fitting for a girl playing dress up than a superstar.
I also wasn’t extremely excited with sister Solange’s choice…
…the short hem is sexy, but the boxy top half and patchwork details take away from her overall look.
Rihanna was shockingly demure…
…she usually brings it in a show stopping gown in a great color, but this blue dress, while bold, fell flat.
And Alicia Keys….
…looked gorgeous, but something about this navy blue number reminded me of events past…
…I totally ‘get’ going with what you know, but for Ms. Keys, I’d like to see a bit more silhouette variety.
But not all were ‘misses’:
Fantasia is definitely not known for her Fashion sense…
…and therefore I was proud to see her in this super elegant floor length black gown….
…I’ll even cosign her two toned hairdo. This is the closest to class that I’ve ever seen her–Kudos!
I also really liked Corinne Bailey Rae’s choice…
..short, simple and flattering, she shined in this sequined blue cocktail.
My absolute favorite look of the night, at first glance…
…Kelis. Doesn’t she just look bossy? Ok, having the ‘n word’ emblazoned on the back of her jacket is controversial, and a pure publicity stunt for her man…
…but if you can look past that (I know, it’s hard), I’ve got to give it to her. She totally trumped tradition and dress code by wearing pants, but still looks glam in gold topped off with a bright red lip, sunglasses, and a hot haircut. With all the chiffon, tailoring, and updos, Kelis made it work in her own way.
Do you agree?
Smootches!
