Corinne Bailey Rae In Christian Siriano – 2012 Grammy Awards

Corinne Bailey Rae was already a winner when she hit the red carpet at the 2012 Grammy Awards, taking home ‘Best R&B Performance’ in the pre-telecast awards.

The British singer chose a black Christian Siriano Fall 2011 dress with a voluminous, textured skirt associated with the young designer.

Her detailed dress somehow doesn’t overpower the singer’s petite frame, but her curly, side-swept hair does.

Such a standout dress would have been better off with a sleeker ‘do.

Black studded Christian Siriano for Payless pumps and a deep berry lip colour completed the look.

    I liked this look…. but she should’ve gone for a nude shoe and a less chunky heel….

    She didnt wow me in this dress. The shoes were nice, especially for payless.

    I prefer the dress on the model.

    Hate that hair but the dress is superb.

    I don’t like any of it. The dress looks like a mushroom once it starts to rot.

    Too much pouf all around. Not a good look.

    I like it. She pulls it off. Everything balances out for a look full of whimsy and personality.

      I agree with you, Linda. It all works. The big hair and her choice of shoes are both in scale with the dress. Also, on anybody else, this would probably be a big no, but it suits her style and her personality.

    I like the dress, the hair is too much

    The ruffles look sad and deflated compared to the runway model. This is a no-go for me!

    Love the dress, but it’s absolutely wearing her.

    The dress is way too volumnious for her petite frame the proportions are totally off… And the hair – is a true catastrophe…

    Her sister Rhea Bailey was her date and had the most stunning dress on. I was so hoping you might have it up here FC!

    She was on The Bill! Does that still count? I am a tragic Bill-fan, haha :-)

    One of my absolute favorite dresses at the Grammys this year. She look so chic and graceful on the Red Carpet in this dress. Plus her accent is adorable :)
