Red Carpet Report: The Best & The Worst Dressed of the 2013 Grammy Awards
Posted Monday February 11, 2013 11:42 PM GMT
Grammy’s fashion is one of our favorites, and 2013’s red carpet was nothing short of a style haven.
From Rihanna’s sexy wrapped-bodice gown to Florence Welch’s green dinosaur-inspired getup, music’s finest left us with plenty to talk about.
Read on to see our complete list of the best and worst dressed stars from the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.
Taylor Swift: We loved the country superstar’s crème silk chiffon pleated J. Mendel dress. The silver lining embellishments drew our attention to all the right places, and paired with Jimmy Choo shoes, Lorraine Schwartz earrings and an enchanting braid up-do, Swift looked strong, confident and sensual.
Carrie Underwood: Carrie Underwood’s Roberto Cavalli sweetheart gown featured an elusive pattern that flattered her body beautifully, and her $31 million Johnathon Arndt necklace looked as picturesque as its price tag.
Rihanna: Rihanna’s style can be unpredictable, so when she walked out in this stunning Azzedine Alaia red dress featuring just the right amount of scandal (for us, at least), we were pleasantly surprised. Opting for bold red lips and minimalist Neil Lane jewelry, RiRi allowed her amazing figure to speak for itself.
Kelly Rowland: Speaking of amazing bodies … Kelly Rowland drew attention to hers with a Georges Chakra Couture dress featuring strategically placed cutouts on her thighs, midriff and cleavage. While it may not have seamlessly fit into the Grammy’s dress code, it fit Rowland’s body to a T.
Natasha Bedingfield: The singer chose a red cutout gown by Emerson featuring a metallic belt belt that we’ve seen much of this season. Accessorized with Marina B earrings, a Demarco snake ring and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Bedingfield looked daring and darling.
Kimbra: Sure she made a statement — just what that statement was is the question. The Grammy winner's outrageous outfit was created by Australian designer Jaime Lee Major, and while it was fully adorned in beading and crystals, it simply didn't dazzle us.
Katy Perry: We're used to quirky outfits from the singer, but unfortunately we found last night's sea foam Gucci ensemble more weird than whimsical. Perry's floor-length dress left little to the imagination with its body-hugging silhouette, and plunging neckline, that, well, let it all hang out ... literally.
Adele: Don't get us wrong Adele, we're "Crazy for You," but this Valentino print dress ... not so much. We love to see the British superstar in the simple, timeless styling she's donned in the past, but this busy number seemed to fall flat in the fashion department this time around.
Florence Welch: Despite it's custom tailoring, the talented redhead's metallic Givenchy dress did not make us green with envy. On a positive note, Welch's bod was the picture of perfection in the fitted frock.
Ashanti: We wish the R&B songstress would have listened to the Grammy's style guidelines. It's no secret Ashanti has a rockin' bod — but her shear Tony Ward Couture dress had us thinking more along the lines of wardrobe malfunction than fashionable.
