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.
