If you know the history of the Grammy Awards, then you obviously know it’s the biggest night in music for artists across the globe. The most familiar names in the industry come together for an honorable night to celebrate culture, fashion, music, and creativity. Although all of these characteristics are equally important to compound one of the biggest nights of the year, OUR FAVORITE….hands down…is fashion! Of course the performances are fun and the awards are exciting, but it all boils down to ‘Who is wearing What’ …right?! So let’s take a look at some of our favorite highlights of the show… or red carpet should we say!
Let’s start with the good news first:
These ladies were some our favorites and made the best dressed list for other publications as well. What’s exciting about the picture featured below is the bridal influence that embodies these gowns. Beyonce is adorned in an actual wedding gown by international designer Inbal Dror. Ariana Grande looks amazing in her Romona Keveza gown; who we carry in-store by the way–Go Romona! Chrissy Teigen is toting her baby bump in a beautiful Yousef Al-Jasmi original, complete with the very trendy bridal cape. (Think, Solange Knowles’ famous wedding pic..). These women were very classic, chic, and trendy. Bridal approved!
Continuing with our best dresses list, Tori Kelly is a green goddess in her Gauri and Nainika gown. This color is the perfect shade and her blond locs complement the entire look. Kaley Cuoco is flashing her nice physique in this sparkling jumpsuit by Naeem Khan– perfect red carpet choice. And lastly, Ms. Serayah is stunning in this one-shoulder, lavender Vera Wang gown. It shows just enough skin with fabulous Stuart Weitzman heels to top it off.
Carrie Underwood is a beauty in this black Nicolas Jebran number, but the real showstopper was her 12-carat ‘Firefly Diamond,’ necklace. It was reported that there are 20 carats of rubies and 16 carats of white diamonds– that’s a lot of bling! Speaking of bling, Ellie Goulding’s dress may have been modest in the front, but the back was an entirely different story. Her Stella McCartney design has a full beaded low-back–very classy, yet sexy. And then there was Taylor Swift…. The pop star was a stunner in a Versace bandeau top and high-waisted skirt. We’re not used to this side of Taylor, but we love it!
This must be the ‘Year of the Cutouts!’–These celebrities took it to a different level with the sex appeal. Selena Gomez is rocking Calvin Klein with cutouts through the sides and back. Her long brunette locs and diamond hoops complete the sparkly number. Ciara is on fire with this original Alexandre Vauthier gown! She is definitely showing off her toned body– (Should we run to the gym now?!)….Not far behind is Bella Hadid wearing the same designer, Alexandre Vauthier. Looks like these ladies had the same vision.
We love Zendaya and Demi Lovato, but we were torn in between these tux-inspired looks. Both are classic styles, but did they “wow” the crowd enough? We’ll let you guys decide!
Now, we have to be fair. We love Lady Gaga for the David Bowie tribute and she IS known for making daring fashion choices, but this wasn’t our absolute favorite look on Gaga. Nonetheless, she stays true to her style and this is a very Gaga-ish approach to the red carpet. So good for you! Meanwhile, the others are a bit of a miss for us. So we’ll just give you an A for effort!
