Charli XCX In Vivienne Westwood – 2017 Grammy Awards

Charli XCX was one of the ladies in red at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12) in LA.

The silhouette of this strapless gown is undeniably that of a Vivienne Westwood design, with the corseted, fit-and-flare shape and the exaggerated sweetheart neckline.

That said, it came off as rather mature and somewhat dated for the young entertainer who could have likely had a lot more fun with her look on a night such as this.

The gathered train also created a pouf at mid-leg that canceled out any elongating effect.

Halsey In Christian Wijnants – 2017 Grammy Awards

If you were waiting for THAT hide-your-eyes moment at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12) in LA, you can be assured Halsey delivered it.

Only half-dressed, she wore a Christian Wijnants Spring 2017 ensemble.

The only redeeming quality of this get-up is its electrifying, vibrant blue hue which actually is a beautiful one for the entertainer.

What is ultimately a cross between pajamas, parachute cargo pants, and an oversized windbreaker, the look suffered most notably in execution. It was way too big and too long, and the wrinkles had me wondering if she had actually slept in the outfit.

She accessorized with a Vita Fede body chain because, with a completely bare chest, what else was she to do.

Demi Lovato In Julien Macdonald – 2017 Grammy Awards

Demi Lovato slinked across the red carpet at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12) in LA.

Don’t let the long sleeves of this sultry Julien Macdonald Spring 2017 gown fool you.

The textural, intricately woven dress checked the box on all the hallmarks of smoldering style, with its see-through and peek-a-boo, body-con design paired with an Edie Parker clutch and David Yurman jewels.

I do love that the keyhole cutout was slightly less exposed than the runway presentation, as there was enough already laid bare—and those extra-long locks did nothing to cover up this risque glamour goddess look.

Faith Hill In Zuhair Murad – 2017 Grammy Awards

Faith Hill hit the red carpet of the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12).

The country superstar wore an elegant, long-sleeved Zuhair Murad gown from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection.

Red is most certainly a color trend tonight, and the hue looks gorgeous on Faith, but I do take exception to a couple of her styling choices. First off, I really miss the belt from the runway look! I’m also having a hard time with the competing shades of red with the dress, shoes and clutch–they aren’t exact shade matches, and it’s distracting.

Finally, while her hair is absolute #goals on every level, leaving it down and voluminous detracts from the gown’s fierce shoulders.

Do you think I’m being too critical here of a truly lovely gown?

Mya In Styland – 2017 Grammy Awards

Mya attended the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12).

The singer wore a red satin Styland suit with L’Dezen by Payal Shah jewels. 

I love a good pantsuit on the red carpet, but unfortunately, this just looks sloppy.

It’s the pussybow that is killing this for me. The peek-boo bralette under the suit could have been a risqué and fun addition to the more demure fashion choice of a suit, but with the bow, too, it’s just overkill.

Tori Kelly In Badgley Mischka – 2017 Grammy Awards

Tori Kelly was also on the red carpet before hitting the stage to perform a star-studded tribute to the BeeGees at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12) in LA.

Absence of any of the evening’s more prevalent ostentatious glitz, the singer relied on the gorgeous dark-green hue of this Badgley Mischka gown to make a statement.

And it did.

While the flamenco effect of the tiered ruffle silhouette of the dress wasn’t anything to write home about, golden accessories including Neil Lane jewels and an Edie Parker clutch brought a layer of glamour to the more casual look.

Laura Pausini In Valentino Couture – 2017 Grammy Awards

Laura Pausini attended the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12).

The singer wore a long-sleeved, black Valentino Couture gown from the Fall 2016 collection.

To say that this dress leaves much to be desired is quite the understatement for me. It is just so ‘meh’.

However, a couple of tweaks could have really helped things–getting her dark hair pulled up and off of the dark dress would have helped, and some sort of really eye-catching jewelry, like the necklace we see on the runway, would have also elevated the look dramatically.

You may recall that Nicole Kidman wore the shorter version of the look last month, and losing some of the length helps a lot for me.

Am I missing the point, or are you equally underwhelmed?
