Last night was the 54th Grammy awards, and with the news of Whitney Houston's sudden passing, this years awards took on a more in memoriam feel. There were some great performances throughout the night, the ones that stood out were Bruno Mars, Adele's amazing return, the Beach Boys with Foster the people, and of course, Jennifer Hudson's tribute to Whitney. I had joked about how the Grammy's could have a Whitney Houston drinking game (drink at every mention), but I would like to add that despite the appearance of some of my tweets, I was not participating. (On that note, does anyone else have an incredible that changes words to the plural or select a word that you in fact, did not select? It is so annoying!) It was touching to see how the artists influenced by Whitney's talent paid tribute to her.
Anyway, on to the Red Carpet. A lot of my hits and misses are people who I had no idea who they were.
|Sera, Tamara Braun, Jessie J|
|Kate Beckinsale, Kelly Rowland|
And my pick for best dressed:
|Bonnie McKee, Fergie, Rhianna|
Okay, for starters, I had never heard of Bonnie McKee. No clue who she was, whatsoever. Apparently, she sings. And from my Google search, she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel back in like 2009. A lot of help that gave her. Next, we have Fergie, in her Jean Paul Gaultier Couture. I believe I tweeted "Oh Fergie...no..." and that's still what I think. Sure Tangerine Tango is Pantone's color of the year, but no. And Rhianna. I have to admit, the dress, and the shoes and clutch I love. It's the hair that absolutely kills it.
All I have to say is that this whole "flatform" trend needs to go. Frankenstein-esque feet do nothing for the figure. Not to mention the FUPA of that high waisted mini-mullet-like-skirt.
Lastly, remember back when Gaga tweeted a tease about her modeling in Thierry Mugler's fashion show last Spring? She was unveiling one of her new songs while she walked the catwalk? No? Well she said this (again, Google saves, you can find anything. I'd like to thank whoever it was that took this screenshot).
I'd like to think that maybe it wasn't the Mugler show she was teasing. It was this.
Lastly, I decided I would do a best/worst dressed men's pick because let me tell you, I was pretty much obsessed with this look:
And then there's this, it breaks my heart.
|Val Kilmer, believe it or not|
Remember when he was hot?
