Here are some red carpet pictures from the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards. I can’t say that I was impressed by any of these looks, except maybe Jennifer Hudson. Rihanna dress was actually beautiful, but it didn’t seem to fit for the occasion. Lady GaGa looked like deconstructed Cinderalla, and Beyonce had glitter highlights in her lacefront. Ciara’s dress reminded me of Elvira, or something you would wear on a date with Dracula. Not necessarily bad, just interesting. I think the Pre-Grammy brought out the better fashion style.
Rihanna sat with Katy Perry, and boyfriend, comedian Russell Brand. If you want to have fun during an otherwise boring event, sit with two trouble makers like Katy Perry and Russell Brand. Now, that’s the Rihanna I like to see.
Check out Rihanna and Ciara in the same picture. It looks like their dresses are fighting. They are both fabulous apart, but together, they look lost in a heap of feathers and chiffon. Is Usher really that short?
Also Jennifer Hudson, Jaime Foxx, Maxwell, and Mary J Blige preform on stage:
Clive Davis hosted the star studded event, The Annual Pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA. Rihanna and Ciara went for the puffy edge, and actually pulled it off looking nothing shy of amazing. Actually, Ciara reminded me of Lil Bo Peep, but in a fashion forward couture kind of a way.
Some blast from the past hit up the event including, Toni Braxton, Mya, and India.Arie. Mary J Blige and Kendu Isaacs were kissing on the red carpet, I guess to show the world they’re not fighting anymore at events. Jennifer Hudson, Keri Hilson, and Usher worked the red carpet, as well. Jennifer Hudson is trying to get slim on is.
If the stars were not at the Clive Davis Pre Grammy Party, they were at the Directors Guild of America Awards with Tyrese Gibson plus his hair, Zoe Saldana (Avatar), and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious). Zoe Saldana dress was probably the hottest outfit on the night.
After all the partying, Celebs hit up the 3rd Annual Grammy Midnight Brunch. Stars included Michelle Williams of Destiny Child showing off her new short hair-do. Ashanti, Tia Mowry and Hosea Sanchez from The Game, and Ne-Yo with Victoria Secret Model and girlfriend, Jessica White were also present.
If this is the route Kelis is taking to maintain her uniqueness and style, then I believe she’s won. I don’t know what happened since the baby and the divorce filings against husband Nas, but I’m thinking she has lost something. If her goal is to prevent them young cats from her jacking her style, then I believe she has won this battle, and if she keeps dressing like this, I think she may have won the war, as well.
So is this pressing the fashion envelope, or is this just hot mess? Too each his own, but don’t expect me not to have an opinion. In all fairness to Kelis, this outfit is what sh wore to the Data Awards, so maybe that explains it. I hope!
