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.

Beyonce Knowles In Roberto Cavalli Atelier & Balmain – 2015 Grammy Awards Performance & Press Room

Beyonce Knowles In Roberto Cavalli Atelier & Balmain - 2015 Grammy Awards Performance & Press Room

After a rather formulaic red-carpet entrance, Beyonce Knowles made two more wardrobe changes throughout the evening at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Performance: Taking the stage to sing ‘Take My Hand, Precious Lord,’ she wore a custom Roberto Cavalli Atelier gown with a Messika high jewellery necklace. The gossamer, ethereal quality of this confection, which was constructed of transparent silk tulle with all-over crystal embroidery, was beautiful on Queen Bey with the angelic nature of the design coordinated to the song. I loved seeing this softer side of the singer.

Press Room: After collecting multiple Grammys, Beyonce posed with her trophies in a Balmain Pre-Fall 2015 sparkle and fringe dress paired with embellished, strappy Fendi sandals and the same extra-long waves. Although she swapped her original long black gown for a short LBD, I was still left stifling a yawn and wishing for a fresher look and a different ‘do for the stunning songstress.

Many of you were bored with her first gown. Did she redeem herself with either of these looks?

Jane Fonda In Balmain – 2015 Grammy Awards

Jane Fonda In Balmain - 2015 Grammy Awards

Jane Fonda attended the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Putting girls more than half her age to shame, the actress wore a Balmain Pre-Fall 2015 green and black striped jumpsuit styled with gold fringe Balmain neckline which was tucked in on the look book image.

While I prefer the look book presentation, I am sure the reason Jane didn’t tuck in her necklace was because she didn’t want the fringes grazing her nether regions all night.

Gold Jimmy Choo pumps, Vhernier jewels and Paula Cademartori ‘Cocca’ Clutch rounded out her never-aging look.

Kim Kardashian In Balmain & Rihanna In Altuzarra – Roc Nation Pre-GRAMMY Brunch

Kim Kardashian & Rihanna In Altuzarra - Roc Nation Pre-GRAMMY Brunch

Kim Kardashian and Rihanna attended the Roc Nation and Three Six Zero Pre-GRAMMY Brunch held at Private Residence on Saturday (February 7) in Beverly Hills, California.

Kim Kardashian: Showcasing her new shorter hairstyle, the reality star stayed true to form opting for a midriff baring Balmain look which involved a pencil skirt styled with accessories from both Balmain and Lanvin.

Rihanna: The singer wore a summery Altuzarra Spring 2015 look which some might think was brunch-inappropriate due to the bra top, but this is classic RiRi to me; sexy with an edge which she pulled off without trying too hard. Take note Mrs. West. The look was styled with black strappy sandals, Suzanne Kalan champagne diamond hoop earrings, a Jack Vartanian ring, and two Ivy rings.

Lea Michele attended the 67th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Saturday (February 7) in Los Angeles, California.

Sticking to her favoured sultry slip style, the actress wore a Balmain spaghetti strap dress which creates plenty of impact despite its simple draped design.

Styled with Alexandre Birman black suede sandals, she opted to toughen up the look with black and gold Balmain cuffs.

Flawless or too déjà vu?

Janelle Monae In Balmain - 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards

Janelle Monae attended the 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center on Saturday (January 24) in Atlanta, Georgia.

The singer kept up her 100% black and white run wearing a directional caped blazer from Balmain in an eye-catching jacquard graphic print.

Showing off her fashion flair, she teamed the amazing piece with black cigarette pants and Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Gabo’ cut-out booties.

With her hair teased into a signature style, just a touch of red via her nails and lip interrupted this black and white affair.
