Nicole Kidman In Vera Wang – 2013 Grammy Awards

Nicole Kidman In Vera Wang S13 -2013 Grammys

Nicole Kidman was the ‘plus one’ to her musical hubby Keith Urban at the 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted on Sunday evening at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

But the actress didn’t downplay her red-carpet entrance at the event, selecting a Vera Wang dress that was lovely on her statuesque frame.

The soft metallic gown featured a delicate lacy overlay, as it flaunted the very-familiar sheer trend from the mid-thigh down.

Fred Leighton jewels, along with Nicole’s straight hair and radiant nude makeup, provided just the right edge for this glamorous design.

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

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.
