**I write this late at night. Ignore the errors, please.
More than a few times I said to Craig, “I don’t even want to write a Grammy
fashion recap. I mean, come on. This is all just ridiculous.”
The clothes are were just stupid.
Still, this is what I do. I recap awards show fashions based on nothing other than the fact that I like clothes.
It was just hard this year. I mean, especially when you have stuff like this to look at:
And this. (Is she bleeding from her lady parts?)
So after seeing some of these fashions, I was literally as un-inspired as all get out.
I’m hoping that many of the Grammy artists and attendees decided that in light of Whitney Houston’s passing they felt awkward smiling on the red carpet and decided to forgo it. I get it. I can respect that.
I can’t, however, respect this… Nicki Minaj is offending Little Red Riding Hood. And I fast-forwarded through her performance.
Still, there were some stand-outs. And I’m not sure I mean that in a good way.
But this little lady looked great.
I love Adele. (Or, “Princess Adele” as Lila calls her.) She’s incredible. She looked lovely. A little matronly – but I love the red lips, not huge hair and FLAWLESS skin. Gorgeous.
This rapper, by the name of “Wiz“, I believe looks dirty. And his model-girlfriend (Amber something or another) is striking. In a Hulk Hogan-type of way.
I don’t mind Bruno Mars as a general rule. (I run to him on my iPod.) However, his pants are too short. I think that and his tall hair are all part of his grand illusion to make us think he’s taller than what he really is. Because let’s be honest, those pants are no more than 12 inches long and he’s 2 feet tall.
Carrie Underwood. GROSS. The back of this dress reminds me of the two-piece, yet still-one-piece swimsuit I wore when I was a tween. Do you remember these suits? They were a one-piece in the front and had a “bra-type” closure in the back.
Stupid then. Even stupider now.
This is just too much. Black bag? Black eyeliner? Vanna White hair?
I hate this.
I loved Cyndi Lauper’s hair, and makeup and the top-half of her outfit. I would have chosen sleek, skinny pants, not a big-‘ole coat.
But seriously, let’s talk hair. It’s FANTASTIC.
She looks like an age-appropriate rocker. Well done, little lady.
I had no idea that Glinda the Good Witch was at the Grammy’s this year.
Kathy Griffin is a JERK but she looks better than she’s ever looked. Ever.
Which is completely contradictory to what karma says…
Now, I liked Katy Perry’s blue hair. Loved it, in fact. (Bet Bruno Mars wishes he could get that kind of height on his hair.)
…but, SHE NEEDS TO WEAR A BRA.
(Love the color of the dress. She looks beautiful.)
But WEAR A BRA. You’ll regret it later.
Still, we heard enough about her in the early 00’s, we need not hear anything from her for at least 8 years.
She owes us that.
Rihanna looked lovely. The bangs sort of bother me. But the dress is lovely. And the back was gorgeous.
I hope she’s not really dating Chris Brown again.
