Needless to say, by the time Grammy hour came around, I was already in a zombie-like state, having gotten a mere 4 hours of sleep! Nevertheless, I pulled through the entire E! red carpet special to be able to deliver to you, dear readers, my best and worst of the biggest night in music. Come time for the actual show, however, keep reading to see how I fared staying awake.
So here it goes:
For those of you following my live tweet feed during the red carpet (@vogueepilogue), you already know that I was less than impressed with the choices of outfits. In fact, I much preferred watching the suit and tie-clad men (pun intended) roam the step-and-repeat area.
However, I did manage to pull together my top THREE best (because I honestly could not manage to pick five good, let alone great looks), to which I will add three worst-est looks (to cut the list short).
(In order of bestest, to best)
That body, in that tastefully cut out dress just put had that absolute wow-factor that we all look for when watching the red carpet. She aced it in this Georges Chakra Couture number.
I totally loved the fact that she pulled out her "Pon de Replay" circa 2006 weave, with the soft highlights and the pop of colour. The ladylike Azzedine Alaia piece softened her usually hardcore hip-hop star look.
Although it may seem totally unconventional to wear just a jumpsuit to the Grammys, I think B pulled it off like a champ. The ever-in-style black and white monochromatic colour blocking Osman Studio get-up gets an A+!
(In order of worst to worst-est)
I think the dress could have had a lot of potential had the focal point had NOT been her abundant cleavage. This just made the Gucci piece look vulgar.
Although I usually love J.LO's red carpet looks, this Anthony Vaccarello one just did not at all do it for me. The topknot reminded me of what my hair looks like right before going into the shower. And the leg slit.... Need I saw more? She was covering her vajayjay with her clutch the whole time! Come on girl, isn't that a sign?
I am a Valentino obsessed fashionista. The fact that this dress is designed by the house almost brought me to tears. It looks like a bad 1970s comforter turned dress, and that's NEVER a good thing. From the print, to the length, the colour, it was just all wrong Adele. Not flattering in the least bit.
Oh... And here is how I ended up (picture courtesy of my sneaky boyfriend) and yes I was rocking my new prabal kicks.
