Carrie Underwood In Roberto Cavalli – 2013 Grammy Awards

Carrie Underwood In Roberto Cavalli - 2013 Grammy Awards

Carrie Underwood was one of the first celebrities to hit the red carpet Sunday evening at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

Nominated for two Grammy awards, the country music songstress wore a black, strapless Roberto Cavalli gown for her big night.

The lace and embroidered, curve-hugging mermaid silhouette looked so elegant on the singer. The look was unexpectedly elegant, in fact, given the rock ‘n roll vibe of the typical Grammy carpet.

Carrie’s dress had a very slight sweetheart neckline which was a perfect cut to show off her 381-carat diamond necklace from Johnathon Arndt. She may have brought ladylike style to the event, but she sure didn’t leave any want for bling.

To keep the classy vibe continuing into the beauty department she paired the look with loose waves, a smokey eye and nude lip.

Adele In Valentino Couture – 2013 Grammy Awards

Adele In Valentino Couture - 2013 Grammy Awards

I was very excited to see Adele take to the red carpet this evening in California at the 2013 Grammy Awards for two reasons.

Firstly, Adele is wearing a colour other than black for a refreshing, long overdue, change; and the shorter version of her Valentino Spring 2013 Couture dress works better for me at knee-length.

The original length could’ve been quite unflattering, overly fussy and not really event appropriate.

Save the longer length for Keira Knightley I say.

Her red-and-black embroidered frock with a full voluminous skirt was styled with matching pumps.

A sweeping updo and glossy lips completed her look.

Do you love this departure from her usual style, or is it not working for you?

Alexa Chung In Valentino Red – 2013 Grammy Awards

In a sea of sultry sparkle and sass, Alexa Chung made a ladylike statement on the red carpet the 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday night.

The British DJ and TV presenter, who is sometimes known to prefer edgy, androgynous looks, was altogether girly in a Valentino Red tea-length dress.

The flirty, daisy-printed frock was paired with a grey pump, but without the flash of any jewels.

The look was undeniably pretty, but it actually seemed better suited for a spring luncheon.

Alexa kept the casual, effortless vibe going with her loosely swept-back locks. Her bold lip, painted the same colour as the red carpet, was the biggest attention-grabber here.

Carly Rae Jepsen In Roberto Cavalli – 2013 Grammy Awards

Carly Rae Jepsen may have the bright, bubblegum pop hit of the season with her ‘Call Me Maybe’ track. But for Sunday night’s 2013 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, the nominated songstress took a darker, edgier turn.

Following in the heels of Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, Carly Rae also wore a Roberto Cavalli dress for the evening.

The strapless, glittering statement almost looked slick with its cascade of shine that continued into the fishtail train.

No jewels were really necessary to add sparkle to this look, but she did accessorize with a gold Cuyana bracelet and H. Stern ring. And Jerome C. Rousseau’s ‘Mikon’ black patent, peep-toe Mary Janes were her shoe of choice.

The sultry mood continued with Carly’s dark locks and blunt bang, not to mention her silver eye shadow and nude lippie.

On the red carpet, Carly did admit she was a bit stressed when it came to finding her Grammys gown. After trying on eight different looks, she decided on this Cavalli number.

Did she make the right choice in your opinion?

Taylor Swift In Maria Lucia Hohan – Grammy Nominations Concert Live!

Going back to her Tennessee roots, Taylor Swift reaffirmed her place as country-pop’s reigning princess at the Grammy Nominations Concert in Nashville last week.

The songstress looks like a dream in a lacy frock by Maria Lucia Hohan and a pair of nude peep-toe pumps.

The a-line dress complements Taylor’s willowy frame, while the lace pattern in the perfect shade of winter white is reminiscent of sweetly intricate snowflakes.

Plus, Taylor’s lush blonde bangs frame her face in a way that is both modern and vintage-inspired.

You can buy Taylor’s Maria Lucia Hohan dress from Luisa via Roma.
