51ST ANNUAL
GRAMMY AWARDS
NEWS NEWS NEWS: Chris Brown and Rihanna just dropped out of the Grammys, apparently there was an altercation after the Clive Davis party, a woman claims she was assaulted by Chris, we don't know if it's Rihanna or someone else...stay tuned...

UPDATE CHRIS BROWN / RIHANNA: Chris
turned himself into the LAPD he's booked on a felony battery and bail wasset at $50 000. Rihanna is resting in the hospital. Chris what were you thinking? 19 and you are already beating up your woman? Well I guess he can kiss kiss his career goodbye for now. [TMZ]

M.I.A
was soo good all knocked up with her belly like that, one of my favorite Grammy performances.

Paul McCartney
is performing right now, the Brits have taken over the Grammys!

*RATINGS:
1 being the worst and 5 being the best.

Leona Lewis.
I don't think I would have picked out this dress for her myself, but it turned out pretty good. I like the aqua ring and the pink nails and lipstick.

RATING: 3.5

Gwyneth Paltrow. I swear when she came on stage there was a slight gasp, she looked amazing! Stunning! Fierce! Only problem is she probably should have passed on the grey tights.

RATING: 3.5

Audrina Partridge. She looks great, the dress looks like it could be part of The Lauren Conrad collection! Why is she here though, it doesn't even look like she's someones date. She's barely an actress let alone a recording artist. Meh.

RATING: 3.8

Sheryl Crowe in Australian designer Toni Maticevski. Much better then that bronze disaster earlier.

RATING: 2.8

Jennifer Hudson. Oh God I love this dress on her, it could not be a more perfect choice. Her makeup is gorgeous too.

RATING: 3.8

Katy Perry. ET Canada gave her the best dressed award. I think she looked gorgeous, this dress for her took me by surprise. I have to say her performance was pretty annoying and over the top, I'm so tired of hearing "I kissed a girl".

RATING: 4.5

Carrie Underwood. Gosh, I can't even remember the last time she picked a good red carpet dress. Did she change stylists?

RATING: 4 Adele. I'm so glad she won, she has such a great voice. Chasing Pavements was one of my favorite songs last year, and I still like it a lot. this whole look is perfect on her, the jewel tone coat, dress and adorable shoes.

RATING: 4

Zooey Deschanel. I didn't expect to see her their, but I'm glad, she definitely brings the cuteness factor full force. I love that jeweled barrette she has on, I really want one just like it. (Hmm time to search eBay)

RATING: 3.5 Latoya Luckett. It's nice to see a former Destiny's Child member doing okay and looking fabulous. I'm a bit in between about her eye shadow, but the rest is amazing.

RATING: 4

Nicole Kidman. I don't hate the dress, but i don't like it either. Something is way off.

RATING: 2.5

Jennifer Nettles. I'm glad she wore Rachel Roy, she's such an amazing designer.

RATING: 3.8

Duffy. She loves her mini dresses, but being short (like me) it's probably the best choice for her.

RATING: 3

Bai Ling. We always need a touch of crazy!

RATING: 1.5 (it could have passed if it wasn't for the big bow).

Robyn. I love her, I've been a fan since the "Do you know what it takes" days. I can't believe she's managed not to become a 90s one hit wonder. Huge Kudos for that.

RATING: 2.8

Estelle. She sure has that space age / futuristic style down pat, and she pulls it off everytime. I know it's not everyones cup of tea, but for some reason I like it.

RATING: 3

Marisa Miller. I still don't understand why she was voted Maxime's hottest woman or something last year, because I don't think she's that special although she is a pretty girl.

RATING: 3.5

Kim Kardashian. She's changed so much in the last year, her style has gone up ten notches. Keep it up.

RATING: 3.5

Samantha Harris. She should have slicked her hair back, but the dress is cute.

RATIGN: 3

Keisha Cole. Well it's not surprise that I don't like her dress. I never really like anything she has on. I'm not sure what her style is suppose to be...

RATING: 1

Giuliana Rancic. She was actually one of my favorites, even though she was there for the E! red carpet coverage.

RATING: 3.8

Natalie Cole. The chains on this dress are just strange. I'm not sure about the short hair on her, I always liked her with long hair even though i know she's getting older.

RATING: 2 Solange Knowles. Cute, young and fresh (although a little short). She's really found a good balance with her style lately.

RATING: 2.8Fantasia. The fringe on this dress is a little off, and I don't think the shoes go either. She should have worn that purple dress instead that she wore to the Clive Davis party.

Jordin Sparks. I'm not sure...that thing at the neck is just strange. The designer was probably trying to be creative, but I don't think it works.

RATING: 2.6

Janelle Snowden. i love that dress, it looks amazing against her skin.

RATING: 4

Kate Beckinsale. This girl can pull off some fierce runway dresses I tell you!

RATING: 3.5

Shaun Robinson. Cute, much better then all her previous red carpet efforts.

RATING: 2.8

Leanne Rimes. I'm really drawn to the embellishments on this dress, and the shot of ocean blue.RATING: 3.6

Miley Cyrus. I'm not sure if I like seeing anyone that young in Herve Leger, a bit too old for her.

RATING: 3

Paris Hilton. God that looks like a swimsuit or figure skaing outfit. Too short, too bright and too ugly.

RATING: ???

Pheobe Price. Apparently she's just there to be a seat filler (keeping Rihanna's seat warm I'm sure). The funny thing is, if she got rid of the mini hat and that thing of her rist she would be left with an okay looking outfit.

RATING: 1.8Kathy Griffin. Great dress, the color is stunning on her, especially against her eyes and hair.

RATING: 3.8

Nikki Cox. It's bad enough about her lips, but does she have to wear a nightgown to the Grammys?

RATING: 1

Lisa Rinna. She's only there to show off her messed up lips. Her boobs look lopsided in that dress.
RATING: 1.5

Taylor Swift. Edgy, but sweet at the same time.

RATING: 3.5

Paul Abdul. ET Canada just gave her the award for worst dressed. I love yellow, but the dress is a little much for her tiny frame, and the hair is horrible.

RATING: 1.5

Kimberly Caldwell. Wow she really pulled off this low cut look, stunning!

RATING: 3

Yolanda Adams.


WHO WORE IT BETTER?
Yolanda or Jessica

Whitney Houston. The hair is alittle big, but I'm glad she looks healthy again.

RATING: 3

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EMI/STAND UP FOR THE CURE
POST GRAMMY EVENT
Kate Bosworth. I'm liking what i see, the fringe is cool.

Hilary Duff. Oh love this look, the color is gorgeous on her as well as the eye makeup.

Paris Hilton. Doesn't look too good from what I can see. It's got to be better than that awful versace dress earlier.

Katy Perry. Adorable in pink again.


RUSSELL SIMMONS /
US WEEKLY PARTY
Taraji P. Henson. OMG I love it, especially the shoes. Someone wore this dress last December but I can't remember her name!

Tatiana Ali. It probably would have been better if the dress was shorter and she wore better shoes.

Chutney Ross. I like this a lot, it's very me. The clear top on the shoes are a nice touch.

Eva Marcille. I love the color, but it looks a bit like a nightgown.

Kim Kardashian. She's really pulling out all the stops fashion wise lately, though I fear th dress might be too dressy for an after party.

Elise Neil. This would not look good on everyone, but it's a great choice for her.


HOUSE OF HYPE PARTY
Duffy. Another cute mini dress. I want Duffy's closet!

Keisha Cole. So wrong.

Ashanti. I like that she's wearing pink and black because it's so trendy right now, but I really don't like the collar and houlders on the dress. Too much.

Christina Milian. Little bo peep goes to a funeral.

Cheryl Cole & Mika. the both look great. I really love Cheryl Cole's sheer dress, she managed to pull off a difficult look.


UMG CHAIRMAN
DOUG MORRIS' PARTY

Colbie Callait. This is a big improvement for her.


Tracee Ellis Ross. She's one of my favorite fashionistas.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SALUTE TO ICONS:
CLIVE DAVIS PARTY
Rihanna. A little to much boob, but apart from that I adore this dress on her. The color is fantastic, it probably would have been one of my choices if I was going to such an event.

Paula Abdul. Wow she's not her usual train wreck self, I actually like this look on her. It's very Paula, but a little more toned down.

Miley Cyrus. I would have liked to see her hair slicked back in a ponytail, but apart from that I really like this look on her. I know shocking.

Leona Lewis. Maybe it's the shoes, but I don't think this dress suits her to well, although she doesn't look bad in it.

Taylor Swift. That dress looks too much like Balmain, why didn't she just wear the real thing? Looks like designer Collette Dinnigan was a little too inspired by them.

Jennifer Hudson. I like the new choppy hairstyle, this is a great look for her.

Fantasia. I'm not a fan of her tats, I like tattoos ( have a couple myself), but hers don't seem to be well placed. As for the dress, I love it, this is a great look for her. She looks younger then before and I'm glad she got rid of that skunk hairstyle she was sporting.

Katie Perry. Adorable, like a younger fresher version of Dita Von Teese.

Estelle in Stella McCartney. Didn't Sienna Miller already wear this top? looks familiar. I love this soft color on her.

Keisha Cole. She looks like a ninja.

Carrie Underwood. Hate it, it's like a bad 70s party.

Kelly Clarkson. I love Kelly, I always will! This blue dress is a nice color on her, but she needs a better dye job.

Kimora Lee Simmons. I wonder how far along she is?

Duffy. Too cute, that dress is so me. I wonder what she would look like with dark hair?

Sheryl Crowe. It's bad enough that she looks like she's been spending too much time 'soaking up the sun', but does she have to emphasize it with a bronze dress, clutch, shoes, necklace, earrings and brassy hair? Ugh...this could go down in one of the worst lists of 2009...


NEW ARA & 944 MAGAZINE
PRE-GRAMMY PARTY
Kim Kardashian. I love this dress, the color is stunning, everything is working for her here.

Khloe Kardashian. I'm not sure about the sheer top, but I like the rest. Purple is her color. Kourtney Kardashian. Cute, cute, cute!
Shontelle. Working the pink and black trend.

Eva Marcille. She's going for the 40s look, but the dress is a little too short for that style. She looks nice though.
Adrienne Bailon. It's nto really for me, but the look is well executed.

Katerina Graham. This looks like something Rihanna would wear on stage, except she would make it more revealing.


CASH MONEY RECORDS
PRE-GRAMMY PARTY
Paris Hilton. I'm glad she didn't try to ruin this dress with a bunch of awful accessories, like she normally does.

Nicky Hilton. Rocking the Louis Vuitton tribute to Steven Sprouse shoes.

Tila tequila. I wish she would get rid of those implants.

Leelee Sobieski. The hair is a little whild, but I love this look.


HOUSE OF HYPE
PRE-GRAMMY BRUNCH
Adrienne Bailon. Cute, but those YSL pumps have got to stop.

Sanaa Lathan. The shoes help save this look.

Kim Kardashian. If I saw this dress on a hanger I probably would have said, no no no, but Kim actually looks good in it.

stilettostetico said...

Mmmh Actually I think that Marisa Miller is an "anatomic BOMBshell" 's epitome, a scorching "BlockBuster Beauty" who is more explosive than graceful !!!
ps: I really like Estelle's futuristic peep-toes,"fetishistically" mesmerizing !!!

à Bientôt, Antoine

Savvy Mode SG said...

kimora lee is expecting??? i like paris hilton's second dress, much better than the first one. i hope the women with chris brown is not rhianna. although any woman in that situation is awful.

Birta Aradóttir said...

I just wanted to say that I read your blog everyday and I love it :)

I agree mostly with your opinions and I think you are very fair in your ratings. You're also very open minded when it comes to clothes which I think is really cool!

I've never commented on your blog before which is a shame! ;) But keep up the good work!! I'll definitely keep on checking on your blog.

Molly said...

OH MY GOD! i cant believe that about chris b and rhianna! :O
my oh my, i agree, the end of his career has come. such a shame...

katy perry looks great in the first dress. suprisingly 'normal' for her.
mxx

Nina (femme rationale) said...

my fave has got to be the rachel roy dress. and jennifer hudson is just gorgeous.

ellesappelle said...

Totally agree - Gwneyth should have lost the tights. Apart from that the look was perfect!

ginny said...

i think kate bosworth looks adorable. as she always does...

and miley looks horrible in each outfit. no offense...actually, yes, miley, they're horrible...i mean that as an offense.

Marian said...

Gywn looked great but would have been better without the tights.loving Mias looks,she is making bold fashion statements even when shes due.
