So, this post was originally going to be a best dressed post...but I honestly wasn't in love with anyone's choice of dress last night, so I'll just show you what all the lovely bombshells were wearing instead. I didn't really hate anyone's dress either, none of them struck me though. Such a disappointment.
Alicia rocked a deep blue Armani gown, and for some reason she chose that berry colored clutch. I can't say I hate her dress, but it's not my favorite.
Beyonce Knowles showed up rocking a fresh new hair-do, a shorter length and more of her trademark blonde. She wore a shimmery, Elie Saab dress. She looks great as far as hair and makeup go, but this dress didn't do it for me either. I can't decide if I like it or not. I thought it was her usual look, shimmery.
Rihanna disappointed me this time around. She's usually always put together so well, but this time someone dropped the ball when they put her in this blue Zac Posen dress. It does nothing for that amazing figure she has. I do like the shoes though, and her hair and makeup are both on point. Love the new hair cut.
Keyshia Cole rocked a new 'do on the carpet as well, shedding her signature platinum tresses for a much darker hue. Its either too light or too dark with her. This time she went a tad too dark for her skin tone, but I like the change. I'm not sure how I feel about her Mark Bauer dress though. Her makeup is on point, and the shoes are alright.
I love Corinne Bailey Rae, I think she's adorable and an amazing talent. I wasn't in love with her dress though. Big surprise right? I do like it more than I liked any of the other dresses I saw last night, but I hate her choice of shoes! I would have loved to see her in a pair of metallic silver heels to pick up the shimmer of the over-sized sequin flowers. Anyway, her hair and makeup both get thumbs up from me.
Fantaisia rocked a nice gown on the carpet, it flattered her shape nicely. She's one of the many who decided to go with a new 'do on the red carpet as well. I don't know what exactly inspired the new punk hair do, but after I've seen it a few times its started to grow on me. Go figure! I know I'm probably completely alone in that too, but its fine. I'm always for people marching to the beat of their own drum.
Lastly we have Toccara, a former America's Next Top Model contestant. She went with a slinky black dress that didn't do much for her new, thinner figure. It didn't look Grammy worthy at all either, but at least she wore it with a smile. The shoes are alright, as are her hair and makeup.
I think we saw somewhat of a trend on the red carpet last night at the Grammy's. The banded, sort of embellished waist seems to be a hit among stylists and artists alike. Be on the look out for an emerging trend ladies.
