Corinne Bailey Rae In Christian Siriano – 2012 Grammy Awards

Corinne Bailey Rae was already a winner when she hit the red carpet at the 2012 Grammy Awards, taking home ‘Best R&B Performance’ in the pre-telecast awards.

The British singer chose a black Christian Siriano Fall 2011 dress with a voluminous, textured skirt associated with the young designer.

Her detailed dress somehow doesn’t overpower the singer’s petite frame, but her curly, side-swept hair does.

Such a standout dress would have been better off with a sleeker ‘do.

Black studded Christian Siriano for Payless pumps and a deep berry lip colour completed the look.

Jessie J In Julien Macdonald – 2012 Grammy Awards

On the red carpet at the 2012 Grammy Awards, Jessie J called herself a ‘personal disco-ball’.

She did shine like one, wearing a structured and fully embellished silver Julien Macdonald bustier gown with a mermaid hemline.

Jessie styled her hair in a high ponytail with blunt bangs, accessorizing with major statement earrings and a Lulu Guinness black perspex lips clutch.

I love this look on Jessie. I’m surprised she toned down the crazy on this occasion.

Alicia Keys In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2012 Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys was the third celebrity, following Fergie and Katy Perry, to wear a Spring 2012 Couture look straight off the runway to the 2012 Grammy Awards this evening.

The singer donned an Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture fitted LBD with padded shoulders.

Her look was teamed with a bold statement choker and Christian Louboutin ‘Bis Un Bout’ pumps with PVC trims, which were presented during the Alexandre Vauthier show.

That ankle strap isn’t doing her any favours and they are making her legs appear really short.

A rockabilly hairstyle completed her look.

Nicki Minaj In Versace – 2012 Grammy Awards

Nicki Minaj wanted to ensure that she was the talking point of the 2012 Grammy Awards.

Congrats. Mission accomplished.

She wore a one-of-a-kind scarlet satin Versace robe with the label’s signature Medusa head emblazoned across the skirt.

Matching short sequin-embellished gloves completed her look, which is more ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ than an attempt at religious chic.

The most shocking thing about this look is Versace’s involvement as I’m totally numb to Nicki’s and Lady Gaga’s antics.

Taylor Swift In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2012 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift arrived on the red carpet at the 2012 Grammy Awards wearing in yet another nude, sparkly gown.

That said, Taylor did show off some variety in her Zuhair Muard Fall 2011 Couture gown, with a high neckline which we haven’t seen before on the strapless-gown-loving singer.

Her cap-sleeved gown featured intricate gold and rose-gold beading, plus a flowing train.

The most unexpected part of the ensemble was Taylor’s hair and makeup.

While she usually opts for a signature look of tight curls and red lips on the carpet, Taylor showed off a polished ballerina bun and neutral makeup.

I know this won’t be popular, but I love the look.

Kelly Rowland In Alberta Ferretti – 2012 Grammy Awards

Kelly Rowland attended the 2012 Grammy Awards this evening.

The Destiny’s Child singer was glowing in a nude Alberta Ferretti gown with an illusion yoke and silver floral embroidered bodice.

It’s a relatively simple gown, by Grammy standards, but Kelly looks absolutely phenomenal.

A centre-parted do of tight curls adds a touch of diva, along with large diamond earrings.

One of the best dressed of the night.
