Carly Rae Jepsen may have the bright, bubblegum pop hit of the season with her ‘Call Me Maybe’ track. But for Sunday night’s 2013 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, the nominated songstress took a darker, edgier turn.
Following in the heels of Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, Carly Rae also wore a Roberto Cavalli dress for the evening.
The strapless, glittering statement almost looked slick with its cascade of shine that continued into the fishtail train.
No jewels were really necessary to add sparkle to this look, but she did accessorize with a gold Cuyana bracelet and H. Stern ring. And Jerome C. Rousseau’s ‘Mikon’ black patent, peep-toe Mary Janes were her shoe of choice.
The sultry mood continued with Carly’s dark locks and blunt bang, not to mention her silver eye shadow and nude lippie.
On the red carpet, Carly did admit she was a bit stressed when it came to finding her Grammys gown. After trying on eight different looks, she decided on this Cavalli number.
Did she make the right choice in your opinion?
Going back to her Tennessee roots, Taylor Swift reaffirmed her place as country-pop’s reigning princess at the Grammy Nominations Concert in Nashville last week.
The songstress looks like a dream in a lacy frock by Maria Lucia Hohan and a pair of nude peep-toe pumps.
The a-line dress complements Taylor’s willowy frame, while the lace pattern in the perfect shade of winter white is reminiscent of sweetly intricate snowflakes.
Plus, Taylor’s lush blonde bangs frame her face in a way that is both modern and vintage-inspired.

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.

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.
