Pharrell Williams In Adidas & Chanel – 2015 Grammy Awards

Pharrell Williams In Adidas - 2015 Grammy Awards

Pharrell Williams wore two looks (or is that three?) during the 2015 Grammy Awards where he picked up two awards for ‘Best Pop Solo Performance’ and ‘Best Urban Contemporary Album’ on Sunday (February 8) in LA.

Red Carpet: There was quite a stir about Pharrell’s Adidas look, with some saying it was too casual. Did people forget that this was the Grammys? I love the look for it’s typically cool and sporty vibe, perfectly styled with shoes with grey accents. The unique thing about this outfit is that it looked grey but under flash light it photographed white. I think the stir should’ve been saved for his wife Helen Lasichanh in her Adidas onesie. Unless you’re in a bob-sleigh team or an Olympic athlete, this is not a great look.

Performance: For the performance of his hit single ‘Happy’ , the singer wore a custom Chanel head-to-toe look. While I love the fun effervescent spirit of the look, he did look like an extra from ‘Hotel Budapest’.

2015 Grammy Awards Men Red Carpet Roundup

Grammys mens

A handful of gents made waves at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, where their looks carried some eclectic personality, yet still fell in a rather safe camp for such a night.

Kanye West: Striking a tough, hands-in-pockets pose, the rapper and nominee accentuated the aloof attitude in a Balmain Homme suit, worn shirtless with a slight slouch to the pants. It all made sense until I saw the weathered pair of black cowboy boots, which was the unexpected, rebel twist. Yay or nay to the boots?

Jay Z: The music mogul was dressed to impress in a Burberry modern-fit English-woven wool and mohair tuxedo in an inky blue hue with a black silk contrast shawl collar. He couldn’t have looked sharper if he tried.

Common
: Taking a monochromatic, all-black approach, the rapper and multiple nominee wore a well-tailored Givenchy suit that he pulled off handsomely enough to not appear too one-note.

Gwen Stefani In Atelier Versace – 2015 Grammy Awards Performance

Gwen Stefani In Atelier Versace - 2015 Grammy Awards Performance
Gwen Stefani took to the 2015 Grammy Awards stage on Sunday (February 8) to perform ‘My Heart Is Open’ with Adam Levine at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Having earlier rocked an Atelier Versace Spring 2015 jumpsuit-style number on the red carpet, she didn’t mess with a good thing as she again wore the designer.

Going from cool-girl to red-hot, she sizzled in a fiery custom-made, strapless gown with a thigh-high slit and structured detail at the hip, which she paired with matching Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps.

The delicate beading at bodice and the silk satin cutouts were a familiar motif of the Atelier Versace Spring 2015 collection, and I loved the captivating flourish they added to the dress.

With the crimson lip back with a vengeance, she is two for two on Grammys night. I don’t know which look I liked more. Did you have a favourite?

Katy Perry In Valentino Couture – 2015 Grammy Awards Performance

Katy Perry In Valentino Couture - 2015 Grammy Awards Performance
Katy Perry performed ‘By the Grace of God’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

There was no place for extravagant antics or cartoonish costumes during this emotional rendition, so the songstress toned it way down in a structural Valentino Haute Couture gown from the Sala Bianca 945 collection.

I loved the calmly statuesque and stoic spirit of this pristine white dress with its cape detail. It was quietly beautiful and appropriate.

Even Katy’s bright purple hair from the red carpet had miraculously disappeared into a sleek low ponytail.

Rihanna In Maison Margiela Couture – 2015 Grammy Awards Performance

Rihanna In Maison Margiela Couture - 2015 Grammy Awards Performance

Rihanna made a rather drastic costume change for her 2015 Grammy Awards performance of ‘FourFiveSeconds’ with Paul McCartney and Kanye West on Sunday night (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The Barbadian beauty already gave her first ‘performance’ on the red carpet earlier in the evening, rocking a billowing pink Giambattista Valli Couture confection.

When she took to the real stage, her second look couldn’t have been more opposite from the first. She exchanged the sugary frills for masculine flair in a Maison Margiela Spring 2015 Couture oversized suit, accessorized by a few Chopard diamonds and custom white Christian Louboutin pumps for added oomph.

I love how she became one of the boys here, yet couldn’t have looked more sultry in the process. She owned both of her Grammy looks. Bravo.
