Beyonce Knowles In La Perla – 2014 Grammy Awards Performance

Beyonce Knowles In La Perla  - 2014 Grammy Awards Performance

Beyonce Knowles didn’t take to the red carpet prior to the 2014 Grammy Awards as she was the first to perform, with hubby rapper Jay-Z, onstage at the Staples Center on Sunday (January 26) in Los Angeles, California.

Managing to look super sexy without a hint of trashy (it was a performance look after all) wearing a La Perla ensemble from the ‘Cage’ Spring 2013 capsule collection, the look featured a strapless bra, briefs and a cage bustier.

This collection was first made famous by Victoria Beckham, who wore a similar bustier in the Spice Girls’ ‘Headlines’ video.

Saint Laurent fishnet tights, Jennifer Fisher earrings, and Stuart Weitzman black Swarovski-crystal custom-designed ‘Swoon’ pumps accessorized her sexy look, which also comprised sexy wet-look tresses.

Paula Patton In Nicolas Jebran Couture – 2014 Grammy Awards

Paula Patton In Nicolas Jebran Couture - 2014 Grammy Awards

Paula Patton attended the 2014 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on Sunday (January 26) in Los Angeles, California.

While the general consensus is that Paula’s stylist hates her, I have to say that on a night full of mostly uninspired looks Paula’s Nicolas Jebran Spring 2013 Couture gown really stood out.

The zebra-print gown with lioness motifs is just the kind of thing that only really works at the Grammys.

So while I don’t love it, it did make me take notice.

David Yurman jewels and a bouffant ponytail rounded out her look.

Iggy Azalea In Elie Saab – 2014 Grammy Awards

Iggy Azalea In Elie Saab - 2014 Grammy AwardsIggy Azalea was also in attendance at the 2014 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (January 26).

The Aussie recording artist, who recently impressed us with a Roberto Cavalli moment, was surprisingly remarkably subtle this evening.

She worked an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 white embellished gown to her advantage—a look that was angelically innocent and far from wickedly over-the-top. There was certainly little evidence of the rapper’s sometimes risqué style here.

Sleekly brushed-back blonde locks, a magenta mani and a dainty pink lip rounded out the softly elegant look.

Ciara In Emilio Pucci – 2014 Grammy Awards

Ciara In Emilio Pucci - 2014 Grammy Awards

Ciara was another one of the metallic mavens at the 2014 Grammy Awards, held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (January 26).

The pregnant songstress was glowing and so, too, was this scintillating custom bronze gown by Emilio Pucci, which effectively showed off her burgeoning baby bump.

Sequinned and beaded from top to bottom with allover embellishment in the designer’s signature decorative pattern, this dress was a dazzling statement piece.

Given the complexity of the ensemble, Ciara kept her styling simple with naturally radiant makeup, a nude lip and a loosely pulled-back ’do.

Zendaya Coleman walked the red carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 26).

The singer/actress wore a skirt and blouse combination from Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2014.

Zendaya looked perfectly on-trend in a sheer black blouse with oversized pockets, which she wore all buttoned up. The sophisticated top was paired with an airy teal and black polka dotted skirt. She completed her red carpet look with minimalist black heels and a box clutch

For beauty, Zendaya wore her hair up with a sultry smokey eye and nude lip.

This top and skirt look is not typical for an award ceremony, but I thought the look was playful and fresh. Do you agree?

Taylor Swift In Gucci Première – 2014 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift In Gucci Première - 2014 Grammy Awards

Four-time nominee Taylor Swift was every bit a statuesque golden girl at the 2014 Grammy Awards, even before the show got underway at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (January 26).

While the popular songstress stayed very much in her comfort zone of sparkle and shine, she still stunned in a Gucci Première gold lamé, short-sleeve fitted gown featuring a crystal mesh overlay and crystal gemstone detail at the neckline, arms and waist.

She likened the dress to ‘chainmail’ on the red carpet, and what a flashy suit of armor it was—especially with those diamond earrings.

Softening the glittery effect, she pulled her blonde locks into a side-parted ponytail and painted on a pretty pink pout.

Expected? Perhaps. Experimental? No. But, still lovely.

Colbie Caillat In Ezra Santos – 2014 Grammy Awards

ColbieCaillatInEzraSantos2014GrammyAwards

Colbie Caillat hit the red carpet in an equally red gown at the 2014 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 26).

The singer wore a dress designed by Ezra Santos.

Colbie’s crimson gown was eye-catching with a faux-one-shoulder design that had a textural, feather-like detail. All that, plus the turtle neck silhouette and and sexy cross-body sheer panel was all a bit too much for me. The design was interesting and complex, but it was overwhelming for the eye.

I loved how the singer kept her hair simple and high, in a top knot, but I wish she would have left the beautiful earrings at home, which competed with her busy gown.

Do you love Colbie’s gown, or do you, too, think there’s too much going on?

Gloria Estefan In Gustavo Cadile – 2014 Grammy Awards

Gloria Estefan was also on the red carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards held at Staples Center on Sunday (January 26) in Los Angeles, California.

The Cuban legend wore a Gustavo Cadile red dress.

The form fitting gown looked a little too busy at the top with sheer sleeves, scalloped edges and embroidered flowers all coming up to a high neck in the same colour.

Adding to the look, she wore long earring and straight hair, both contributing to the baroqueness of the look from the chest up.

Aside from that, may I just say that the Latina sensation does not seem to age as she looked absolutely flawless in smokey eyes and pale orange lips.

Madonna In Ralph Lauren – 2014 Grammy Awards

Madonna In Ralph Lauren - 2014 Grammy Awards

Madonna took to the red carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (January 26).

The singer, who is performing ‘Same Love’ alongside Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, had quite the plus-one in her handsome young boy, David. Even more adorable—mom and son matched in an amazing mini-me moment.

They were both dressed to the nines in Ralph Lauren; he in a dapper little Ralph Lauren Boys ensemble and she in a her double-breasted, wide-leg black tuxedo hailing from the designer’s Spring 2014 collection.

She did up the ante on the runway version of the look with a host of accessories, putting her unique spin on this suit. From the Eric Javits custom designed black felt gaucho hat sitting atop her blonde waves, to the cross pendant on her black tie and the sparkling, fingerless glove by which she carried a black cane—a necessity due to a dance injury—this mannish moment had Madonna written all over it.

The pièce de résistance had to be her grill, though, which she admitted she likes to wear when it matches her outfit.

Madge has worked the tuxedo angle many times before. Are you glad to see her return to the gender-bending look again?
