Are you still reeling from the Grammy’s, or are you over it? Well, although the event itself may be but an afterthought (except for Katy Perry’s shade at Britney. Katy, the North remembers), I think we are still in the golden hour to talk about fashion on the red carpet. The good, the bad, and the WTF all gathered collectively to attend the 59th annual Grammy Awards this past Sunday, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. I have spent some time curating some of my favorite looks to share, and then doing my best to forget everything else. Here are my top picks from the excitement-filled, Bey-slayed night, in no particular order.
1. Kriss Mincey in Miri Couture
I just love all the texture in this gown by Miri Couture. The cold-shoulder lace print culminates in beautiful nude blush cascades, giving Kriss that coveted mermaid silhouette. The white and blush tones are great complements and look amazing on Kriss’s glowing skin. A dark manicure, slicked back upstyling, and statement earrings complete her red carpet look.
2. Chrissy Teigen in Roberto Cavalli
We’re all in forever agreement that Chrissy Teigen is just a goddess, right? Okay. I am obsessed with the whole design of this black Roberto Cavalli gown. The cut outs are all perfectly placed and complement her figure so ideally, with the extra eye catching detail of the straps at the shoulder and down the bodice. What seals the deal for me is that all over Art Deco inspired pattern embellishment. It truly is exquisite. Chrissy’s lobbed locks, styled with a wet look, and her smoldering eye makeup top off the look.
3. Jane Zhang in Tony Ward Couture
I’m going to go ahead and admit that I had no clue who Jane Zhang was, but I loved the gown so I did my research. Ft real, how dreamy is this gown by Tony Ward Couture? It’s so reminiscent of a Couture gown, in the very best of ways. The feather detailing is so romantic and whimsical, and the sheer details up top and in the sleeves are quite complementary to the look. I also love that it’s been done in a more nude tone, rather than white. I think it adds to the romance of it all, in this particular instance.
4. Maren Morris in Michael Costello
I learned who Maren was thanks to the CMA’s, I believe it was, and have since been obsessed when she makes a red carpet appearance. Clearly, this is no exception. I am so smitten with this dress. Partly because it’s a new take on playing with slits and sheer, but also because, damn, she gorgeous. First of all, that royal purple color is perfection; I love deep jewel tones on the red carpet. Those slits, though; the way they carry up and reveal how the lace bodice extends down. It’s like Grecian met trendy AF and said yas, here you go! Obsessed. Not to mention I am loving her long ombré locks waved here; very reminiscent of The Bachelorette, Jo Jo. While I probably would have opted for a different bag then the one she has here, I really cant see past that dress on first glance so it’s all good.
5. Kelsea Ballerini in Ines Di Santo
You guys know by now that I am really into Kelsea Ballerini right now, right?! I just can’t help it. I love when romantic pieces make a strong presence on the red carpet, just as this floral embellished down by Ines Di Santo does. The all over floral appliqués set against the nude lace is just so lovely. The cold shoulder adds a lovely little detail within the sheer nude material, and the the train elevates the romance tenfold. I love that Kelsea kept it fresh faced with her makeup, and her subtly waved tresses round out this feminine gem of a look.
I know we could talk about the crazy and unexpected all day, but who were your favorite look on he red carpet this year?? Let me know in the comments.
