Florence Welch In Givenchy Couture – 2013 Grammy Awards

Florence Welch In Givenchy Couture  GrammysFlorence Welch, who’s a lover of the dramatic and detailed, didn’t disappoint in a head-to-toe emerald green look at Sunday’s 2013 Grammy Awards at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

The dual nominee walked the red carpet in a custom gown that was modified from a Givenchy Fall 2009 Couture design.

Offering a fresh and oversized spin on the studded trend, the gown lit up the night’s events with a full-on sequined design. Adding a sultry element to the dress was a thigh-grazing slit that showed just the right amount of skin.

The singer accessorized with matching green strappy sandals and a box clutch, also by Givenchy. In addition to a bevy of rings, the look was finished with gilded nails, a moody red lip colour and face-framing strands of the singer’s famous red locks.

Beyoncé Knowles In Osman – 2013 Grammy Awards

2013Grammys_Beyonce

After stunning in black leather and lace for the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show, Beyoncé Knowles went for a different sort of sizzle at the 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted tonight at California’s Staples Center.

The ‘Love on Top’ nominee skipped those skin-baring gowns and sparkling statements for an ultra-cool, black-and-white jumpsuit by Osman. It was a delightful departure.

The Spring 2013 look may have thrown some for a loop, but I loved the graphic lines of this ensemble and its strong shoulder.

There was an underlying va-va-voom vibe here; or maybe it was just Bey bringing her “it girl” glam factor.

Geometric black-and-white bangles, Jimmy Choo ‘Kalpa’ sandals and Swarovski’s ‘Gemma’ clutch complemented the suit. This style icon finished the look with a sleek ponytail and red lip.

Faith Hill In J. Mendel – 2013 Grammy Awards

Faith Hill In J Mendel - 2013 Grammys

Faith Hill stuck to what works best and that happened to be a stunning little black dress at 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday, hosted at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

The country and red carpet veteran presented at the ceremony in a J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2013 cocktail dress, which put her in the same designer as fellow country star Taylor Swift.

The LBD featured a glittering beaded necklace collar, a sheer bodice, confetti-like sequins, and a figured-enhancing sweetheart neckline. An added detail was found on the front panel of the skirt in the form of a subtle floral design.

To allow the intricate details of the design shine, the singer opted for a soft and slightly messy updo and understated accessories like patent leather pumps, a blue cocktail ring and matching stud earrings.

Rihanna In Azzedine Alaia – 2013 Grammy Awards

2013Grammys_Rihanna1

Multiple nominee Rihanna played the ultimate lady in red at the 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted this evening at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The Barbadian beauty looked unbelievably stunning—and sophisticated—in her candy-apple-coloured, custom dress by Azzedine Alaia that was positively delicious.

The diaphanous A-line design with a long train was a flowing addition to the red carpet. I loved the criss-cross detail in the front that continued at the back.

And because this is the boundaries-pushing Rihanna after all, the look was slightly see-through, as she played her own game of peek-a-boo at the awards show.

This was an incredible outing from Ri Ri, especially with her refined styling that included minimal jewels, pretty ombre curls and a red lippie.

Kat Dennings In Vivienne Westwood – 2013 Grammy Awards

2013Grammys_KatDennings

Kat Dennings attended the 2013 Grammy Awards hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California this evening.

For her presenter duties, the ‘2 Broke Girls’ starlet wore a strapless Vivienne Westwood cocktail dress that didn’t translate as richly as I would have liked.

It was a structured, architectural design, but like this funny girl, it didn’t take itself too seriously. After all, the blue and white print, glittery with sequins, was slightly reminiscent of tie-dye.

That pendant necklace didn’t really belong, though, nor did those chunky nude platform, peep-toe pumps.

Her dramatic oxblood lip and nails, not to mention her long dark locks, put this look on vampy territory.

Did this ensemble fall short for you?

Kelly Rowland In Georges Chakra – 2013 Grammy Awards

2013Grammys_KellyRowland

Fresh off her Super Bowl XLVII performance last week, Kelly Rowland dialed up the wow factor again at the 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday night.

One of the evening’s presenters, she pushed the Grammys envelope with her Georges Chakra black gown from the Spring 2013 Couture collection.

The songstress had fun with geometry in this provocative dress that featured strategically placed, razor-sharp cutouts and a flurry of tulle at the bottom.

Kelly was definitely playing a fierce fashion game with this revealing statement

The runway version was altered by the addition of another black panel at the bodice to make this look ever-so-slightly more conservative.

Huge emerald rings and bold matching earrings from Lorraine Schwartz, along with a sleek low updo and blunt bang, completed the look.

Taylor Swift In J. Mendel – 2013 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift In j Mendel - 2013 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift took to the red carpet at Sunday’s Grammy Awards at the L.A. Staples Center in a Greek goddess-like gown.

Nominated for three awards, the country singer looked sophisticated and sexy in a J. Mendel Spring 2013 confection with silver Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals.

The singer kept true to her latest colour obsession with white (proof: she wore white hot dresses recently to the People’s Choice Awards, Principales Music Awards, and the NRJ Music Awards) in a plunging neckline that was softened thanks to accordion pleats and a metallic beaded bodice.

The singer styled her gown with understated jewels in the form of a purple stone bracelet and floral stud earrings.

I was thrilled to see Taylor tone down the sophistication factor of the gown with a playful, youthful, and slightly messy braided updo and neutral makeup, save for a bit of edgy eyeliner.

Jennifer Lopez In Anthony Vaccarello – 2013 Grammy Awards

2013Grammys_JenniferLopez

Jennifer Lopez pushed the limits of the 2013 Grammy Awards‘ tightened dress code, when she sizzled down the red carpet at California’s Staples Center on Sunday night.

She virtually wore only half of a gown with her Anthony Vaccarello Spring 2013 design; an asymmetrical wonder that exposed her entire (perfectly toned) right pin.

It was “a little shoulder and a little leg,” as JLo described it on the red carpet. But from where I was sitting, this was more like “a lot.”

That Angelina Jolie leg jut just won’t disappear.

While no one was paying attention to her accessories, she did increase the shine factor of the dress’s runway version with multiple rings and stacked bangles. More flash came with her sky-high, metallic-accented heels and a matching Jimmy Choo ‘Charlize’ clutch.

A high top knot, a bronze glow and dagger-shaped nails that were overlaid with gold leafing completed the look.

Too leggy or Grammys-appropriate glam?

Kaley Cuoco In Amen – 2013 Grammy Awards

Kaley Cuoco In Amen - 2013 Grammy Awards

The Grammy Awards are all about the music, and Kaley Cuoco epitomized that when she hit the red carpet sporting her best musician-inspired style.

The ‘Big Bang Theory’ actress donned an intricately embroidered black and gold Amen jacket that she paired with a white tee and sexy leather pants.

A presenter for the night’s awards, the actress accessorized with delicate layered gold necklaces and a gold and black Stark ‘Brilliance’ clutch.

While this look might be dressed down for an award ceremony, I love that Kaley embraced the rock ‘n roll style of the event. Bonus points to her for taking a style leap, as the actress typically favors sugary sweet frocks with bows and ruffled details.
