Solange Knowles In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2013 Grammy Awards

Solange Knowles In Ralph & Russo Couture - 2013 Grammy AwardsWhile her sister Beyoncé went for a black and white ensemble, Solange Knowles once again showed off her love of vibrant hues at Sunday’s 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in California.

Donning a shiny and slinky, emerald-green Ralph & Russo Couture gown, she worked one of those ubiquitous, thigh-high slits to her advantage.

The structured cap sleeve of the dress added a jolt of quirkiness, as did those fluorescent coral-pink pumps.

But it was Solange’s extreme ‘do that really rocked this red carpet.

Katy Perry In Gucci – 2013 Grammy Awards

2013Grammys_KatyPerry

Katy Perry kept up her red-carpet surprises at Sunday’s 2013 Grammy Awards, held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

After a more subdued turn in a Rafael Cennamo gown at the Pre-Grammy Gala last night, she upped the head-turning style quotient with this minty-fresh design from Gucci’s Resort 2013 collection.

The super-tight, green dress featured a heavily embellished keyhole detail that was quite gaping. The lookbook version on the less well-endowed model walked a more elegant line.

Long raven locks and neutral-toned makeup completed Katy’s look.

In a venue where the ‘Wide Awake’ songstress and nominee could have resorted back to rainbow hues and sparkles galore, this was a less over-the-top statement.

But did it work for you?

Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia – 2013 Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia - 2013 Grammy Awards

Fresh off her performance at Super Bowl XLVII, Alicia Keys walked the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Grammy Awards where the singer was nominated for the producer of the year award.

With just a week post-Super Bowl, the singer chose to sport another body-con Azzedine Alaia design to the music awards.

The black formfitting dress hugged the singer’s curves in all the right places thanks to a fishtail silhouette. As if the snug fit wasn’t sexy enough, a midriff-baring crisscross bodice in a dramatic crocodile embossing amped up the sex appeal.

To complete the look, the singer styled her gown with matching black and white, snake-detailed earrings and a cocktail ring. A deep red lip and manicure topped off her glamorous style.

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

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

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.
