January 26th marked the 56th Grammy Awards – the biggest award show for music. The red carpet was studded with glamourous stars. Here is a peek at what the rich and famous wore:
Beyonce, who opened this year’s Grammys with her Drunk in Love performance with producer/rapper husband Jay Z, wore a tantalizing lace Michael Costello gown. The gown featured a lace applique over a sheer mesh base. The creme lace, which covers in all the right places, gave a brilliant feminine look to Beyonce’s seductive dress. The plunge back accentuated all of her curves. She wore deep red lipstick for dramatic flair, and kept her hair crimped and down -- telling the world that Bey does what Bey wants.
Taylor Swift, whose album Red was nominated for “Album of the Year,” gets more sophisticated with every event. The 24-year-old songstress wore a stunning metallic column gown by Italian designer Gucci. The gold fitted strapless base with silver mesh overlay was a stunning combination. She paired with soft makeup, and a casual swept back ponytail.
Katy Perry, who performed her single Dark Horse on stage, never ceases to disappoint. Her ensembles always carry a bit of playfulness, and this year’s Grammys were no exception. Katy wore a Valentino Couture music dress. The bodice was fitted with a sweetheart neckline. The long flowing skirt and train featured measures of treble clef musical notes. Her performance at the Grammy’s must have hit a note with her fans – she is now the most followed person in Twitter history with 50 Million followers.
Nominated for Song of the Year with FUN musician Nate Ruess for “Just Give Me a Reason,” Pink wore a stunning red trumpet dress by Johanna Johnson. The sweetheart neckline bodice cascaded to a fitted form around her hips, and then loosely draped to the floor. Her hair, once iconic pink, was bleach blonde with a slight mohawk. She accented with dropped earrings and a thick diamond bracelet.
The wife of John Legend was an absolute stunner at the awards show. Her husband’s album Love in the Future was nominated for best R&B album. And his song All of Me has been climbing the charts for the last several weeks. She wore a gold metallic mermaid dress with slight exaggerated train. The dress featured a thigh high center slit, and the bodice had a slight art deco feel with a “v” cut in the front. She accented her dress with romantic flowing hair and a gold box clutch.
