2012 Grammy Awards

Happy Monday! :)

Last night was music's biggest night: the 54th Annual Grammy Awards

And as promised, here is a red carpet recap:

Adele


You guys probably know that I am a big fan, so it's no surprise that Adele is #1 on my list. ;)

She looked stunning in this custom black sequined Giorgio Armani gown that features three-quarter length sleeves and a cinched waist.

I love love love her hair and makeup -- she is so rocking those red lips!


She's baaaaaaaaack! Adele took to the stage to perform for the first time in months since undergoing throat surgery. She also cleaned up with awards, winning 6 Grammys throughout the night.

Adele is unstoppable! 
She sang Rolling In The Deep as beautifully as ever and accepted a standing ovation with grace and genuine humility (none of that annoying always-surprised look Taylor Swift has).

Adele totally deserves all 6 Grammy awards she received last night! :D

Katy Perry


Katy Perry is dealing with her divorce from Russell Brand in a very fashionable way!

She turned heads in her pale blue beaded Elie Saab gown and $2 million worth of Norman Silverman jewels.

Lily Aldridge -  


BEST DRESSED: Pregnant Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge glowed on the red carpet.

What a gorgeous mom-to-be!

The Victoria's Secret model chose the perfect dress to show off her baby bump -- a chiffon long-sleeved, floral print Gucci gown with a plunging neckline.

Paris Hilton


Where there's a red carpet, there's Paris Hilton.

I am not always a fan of Paris' fashion choices, but she looks really beautiful in this embroidered white Basil Soda dress.

Her hair, makeup, and accessories = flawless!

Gwyneth Paltrow


A stunning Gwyneth Paltrow takes the Grammy stage.

Clean, simple, classic, beautiful!

Kelly Osbourne


I am not a fan of hers, but I do think she looks beautiful in this sequined one-shoulder Tony Ward gown.
Her hair and makeup are nicely done too. :)

Kelly Rowland


Oh wow, two Kellys in a row! ;)

I am loving Kelly Rowland's custom blush Alberta Ferretti gown. The embroidered detail is so beautiful!
She looks great!

Rihanna


This black custom Giorgio Armani gown is waaaaayyyyy better than what she wore last year. 
So kudos, Rihanna!

Oh, and her gold Neil Lane accessories are perfect!

Carrie Underwood


Carrie looks beautiful and this white long-sleeved Gomez Garcia dress is pretty, but I just don't think there's anything extraordinary about this look. :/

Maybe Carrie's black Swarovski clutch doesn't go too well with the dress?

Jessie J


Jessie J usually wears wacky outfits on the red carpet, so I was happy to see her in this relatively simple metallic Julien Macdonald dress. :)

Taylor Swift


I didn't like this look at first, but it's growing on me.

I think this gold Zuhair Murad gown is beautiful and I'm glad Taylor picked it. 
Yay for trying something new!

Julianne Hough -


Julianne's black strapless Kaufman Franco gown, her hair, and her makeup -- basically the whole look -- is just kind of "Blah", in my opinion.

Fergie


I am so not feeling this Jean Paul Gaultier Couture gown... I just don't think it's right for a dress to show what you're wearing underneath (unless you're at the beach or by the pool, of course, haha!). ;)

Nicki Minaj


I don't get what the whole point of this is. It's not funny at all.
This red carpet appearance and her performance were just plain offensive and disrespectful.

Anyway, that's it for my 2012 Grammy Awards red carpet recap. :)

Whose look did you like the best? Whose look did you not like at all?
Were you able to watch the awards show?

Have a fantastic week, everyone!

  3. I really didn't understand what Nicki Minaj was trying to achieve...I didn't get her look at all! I was also torn about Rihanna's look..........I don't think there was anything that wow about it. Great choices though! xo

  8. Adele looked stunning! She's rocking those red lips. But I think brown hair suits her better. And Rihanna dyed her hair blond! This is the first time I see it, looks good! (Almost) everyone looks stunning, but I'm not a fan of Fergie's dress. And the last one is really weird..

  9. I love Adele! She looked stunning last night and she never disappoints. I'm so glad she has her voice back. As far as Nicki Minaj goes, I agree that she was offensive.

  17. Some of those dresses? They are to die for!

  18. I agree, Adele looked very pretty (I'm not her biggest fan, but I really like her, she has an amazing voice), and didn't like Nicki Minaj either (some people just want to attract attention). Anyway, I think Katy Perry and Carrie Underwood looked so beautiful, although my favourite was Gwyneth, that girl always looks flawless

  21. I agree with you 100% Nicki Minaj is very disrespectful and annoying. I've never been a fan so it really doesn't matter to me but it is so dumb to watch her be "unique"

    I loved Rhianna's dress and hair. Gorgeous.

  23. Great recap, girl! I liked a lot of them, but my faves are Adele, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Kelly Rowland. I didn't like Fergie's and Nicki Minaj was just plain annoying.

    Lots of love, B
