The Grammys are always interesting because the event is wilder than some of the more serious award shows of the season. Of course, anything gets more interesting when you throw rock/pop stars in the mix. Our fashion guy J. Denton Bricker picked the winners and losers in the important red carpet derby.
Denton’s Best Dressed List
Kelly Rowland looked banging in a black gown by George Chakra with phenomenal cutouts that show off her rock-hard bod. If you’ve got it, flaunt it, bitches! … and she does it well. Not bad for a second-lead vocalist, right?
Paris Hilton wore a shimmering white gown with a sleek cutout back by House of Milan. She also has amazing hair and makeup, and that’s hot!
Katy Perry wore an unforgettable and appropriate white gown covered in notes by Valentino. With 11 Grammy nominations, she is not only a winner in the fashion world last night. Her hair was impeccable is an extensive updo, and she is showing just the right amount of skin, which is sometimes hard to do considering the Elmo incident on Sesame Street.
Rita Ora looked like a golden goddess in long sleeved, knee length dress by Lanvin with the slightest hint of green. Her manicure is as wild and fun as the massive rings on her fingers.
Pink never looked so good in a two-toned red gown by Johan Johansson. She said it made her feel like a princess, and she looked like one.
Rihanna seemed super-fierce in a red gown with sheer chiffon panels by Azzedine Alaia. Absolutely fabulous, and her long loose curls are gorge. This was one of my favorites.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis gave new life to men’s fashion in a dark teal tux and an oversized houndstooth print suit, respectively. I absolutely love houndstooth, and it read amazeballs in the oversized print with silver instead of white. Plus I think it is amazingly huge that their album won four Grammys without a major record label. “Same Love” is a song truly about equal rights for all, and the fact that it is being applauded is even better.
Taylor Swift’s completely statuesque appearance in silver Gucci rocked. The gown features full-length diamond chainmail that could stop a bullet. Her ponytail was glamorous, and she has been bringing it this award season.
Denton’s Worst Dressed List
Madonna, Madonna, Madonnna looked awkward channeling a little pimp, a little supreme from American Horror Story: Coven, but not in a good way. Her grill of gold seemed a little ridic. It wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great, either. I forgave her when she changed into the all white number during the show later.
Paula Patton wore a wacky zebra, lion hybrid of a dress. Just no, Paula — you have to be careful with zebra stripes, and this just didn’t work.
