It’s that time of the year when the music royalty steps out in their finery to celebrate the year’s biggest talent. This time around, the red carpet at the 59th annual Grammy Awards was set ablaze with bold styles from sexy thigh-high slit gowns to studded denim jackets. The sexy peep-hole necklines seemed to rule the charts as many of the A-listers seemed to favour this style. Join us as we take you through some of the hits!
She proves it once again that she is the undisputed queen of the red carpet (and our hearts). But first, let’s take a moment to talk about that epic performance! Queen Bey definitely did not disappoint. Now that we’re over our little fan girl moment, let’s talk about that red gown. What’s not to like? The colour looks great on her and adds to the pregnancy glow. If all-over sequins are not your thing, try a subtle option like a sequinned mini paired with a solid blouse.
There is nothing that we don’t like about this look (no we are not being biased). The gorgeous lilac colour adds a soft touch to the otherwise sexy gown complete with a thigh-high slit and plunging neckline. Something else worth noting ladies — add some sparkle to your outfit by carrying a shimmery clutch and slipping on Cinderella-esque glitter pumps.
When it comes to making an entrance RiRi never disappoints. Shimmery orange crop top — check! Flouncy black tiered skirt— check! Million-dollar smile— check! Only she could have pulled-off a look like this with as much flair. If you’re not comfortable bearing your midriff, then swap the crop top for a similar style that you can tuck into your skirt. Or add a floor-length sleeveless cape if you’re looking for something more dramatic.
The new-mom on the block looks absolutely smoking in this all-black cut-out number. Kudos to her for looking fit as ever in this figure-hugging gown. Don’t miss the dramatic eye make-up teamed to perfection with nude lips and beach waves. A handy tip we learnt from this ensemble — go for an all-black fitted gown with a deep V-neck to look instantly slimmer.
Who said you can’t wear a crop top on the red carpet? Take a cue from Lea’s killer outfit on how to make the crop top and skirt combo glamorous and red-carpet ready! The level of intricate detailing on her ensemble is just amazing. Note how her sleek hairdo and au naturel make-up complement the outfit. If you’re not comfortable with pairing a crop top with a fitted mermaid skirt like she did, swap it for palazzo pants or flowey maxi skirt!
Whether it’s Project Runway or the red carpet at Grammy Awards, Heidi sure knows how to dazzle us with her style. Her metallic mini dress has just the right amount of bling. The black nails, smokey eyes and simple hoop earrings add the perfect finishing touches. We’re not so sure about the shoes to be honest.We would have probably swapped them for a killer pair of silver pumps instead, but we love her anyway!
We know we’re talking about the best dressed list but we had to take a side-bar to discuss Katie Perry’s outfit. What.Was.She.Thinking. We do feel horrible saying this but the shiny turtleneck and feathered skirt combo just doesn’t cut it for us. Now that it’s out of our system let’s go look at some eye-candy.
Why hello stud! (pun intended). Nick Jonas took the unconventional route on the red carpet and we totally approve. His all-black avatar makes gives him a rockstar meets cowboy look thanks to the studded denim jacket and knee-high boots. Boys — if the all-over studs are too much for you, try a slightly toned down version with studded detailing just on the shoulders. Or you could go for a black bomber jacket with interesting thread work detailing on the back that also happens to be a raging trend ATM.
JAMES CORDEN & JULIA CAREY
The host of the evening made it to our best dressed list as well! How adorable does he look twinning with his wife? We love the way he swapped the traditional tuxedo jacket for a lilac one. Don’t miss his better-half all decked up in a fitted sequinned dress that’s oh-so-flattering on her. Take a cue from this adorable couple the next time you step out with your partner and you’re sure to look aww-dorable.
