Okay. I won’t lie. I kind of HATE the Grammys. I really do. The red carpet feels more like a circus than a fashion show. It’s almost as if the stars think…”How can I look the most ridiculous?” Mostly, though, I feel like there’s just far too much MUSIC at these music awards. I don’t need to see an 18-minute Aretha Franklin tribute. Although, obviously, I did enjoy watching Christina Aguilera bite it on stage at the end.
Why, yes, I DID rewind it and watch it over and over and over again.
So, when I attempt to pick my fashion FAVORITES from last night, I have a really hard time and mostly just keep picturing Lady Gaga’s pointy face and shoulders during her
Express Yourself Born This Way performance.
I’m almost ashamed at how much I liked Nicole Kidman’s dress. Normally she is so Blandy McBoringson in a skin-colored dress. But this was different. And, not grammy over-the-top.
My favorite dresses, by far, was worn by Selena Gomez and Diana Agron. I thought they both looked lovely and age-appropriate. And, you know, their dresses didn’t have any gimmicks or party favors.
I also – surprisingly – kind of enjoyed Jennifer Lopez in her metallic. Last night was a big night for the metallics, but hers was one of the only ones I thought worked. (PLEASE do not get me started on Ricky Martin’s metallic crotch.)
The worst, by far, and really…this was difficult to choose because the Grammy red carpet was a SEA OF HORRIBLE OUTFIT CHOICES….but I was NOT a fan of Rihanna’s getup…
Or Katy Perry’s Victoria’s Secret Angels costume…
SIGH. I guess she gets points for not arriving in AN EGG? Only Gaga, folks, only Gaga.
So, it was a shut out for some of the Canadian artists last night like Justin Bieber and Drake (That’s Wheelchair Jimmy to most of you!), but Arcade Fire won big, even though their performance made me thankful I am not epileptic. It seems they knew they were going to win, however, since they chose to wait to storm the stage and sing A GOOD SONG after they had won their award. AWKWARD.
Not awkward, however??? The Mumford & Sons, Avett Brothers, and Bob Dylan performance. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. I also totally dug the Cee Lo Green and Gwyneth Paltrow F$%%^ck You duet…because really? Who doesn’t love a good puppet?
