Grammy Awards 2012 Red Carpet – Part TWO

Posted on February 13, 2012

The Grammys! Like the Oscars, with prostitutes!


Anne V and Adam Levine

 He looks stunning. She looks ridiculously tacky. We’re embarrassed for her.


Alicia Arden

Girl, that’s not your dress. We’re not even sure Elle Fanning is young enough for this dress.


Amber Rose in Versace

 Yellow wouldn’t have been our choice for her, but she looks striking as hell.


Bonnie Raitt



Carly Steel

 The dress is doing its job, we suppose, but the pinhead hair is distracting.


Carrie Underwood in Gomez-Gracia

 She burned out the screen on our hotel room TV last night. We think she’s a bit too covered up, but it’s head-turning for sure – and the black purse was a great idea.



 We feel assaulted by this dress.


Diana Ross







Jane Seymour

The dress is pretty standard, but the message is loud and clear: I. DON’T. AGE.


Jessie J in Julien MacDonald

Juicy Fruit wrappers.


Jo Champa

Enh. We can’t work up the words. The belt’s ugly, we can tell you that.


Joyce DiDonato

 Pretty. Soft hair would have been a better choice.


Julianne Hough in Kaufmanfranco

Ladies and gentlemen, Jennifer Anist–

No, wait. She’s almost 20 years younger than her. Julianne, SET YOUR STYLIST, HAIR AND MAKEUP GAYS ON FIRE.


Katy Perry in Elie Saab Couture

 We don’t know what is going on inside this girl’s head anymore.


Kelly Rowland in Alberta Ferretti

 We don’t normally use this as a criterion for assessing a dress, but her butt looked AMAZING in this. The front view’s pretty good too. Love the hair.

LL Cool J

 We love you, Cool James, but this is kind of shapeless and unflattering. Don’t hide that bod under a bushel.


Malin Ackerman in Cushnie et Ochs

Girl, that is not your dress, your color, your shoes, OR your makeup. Get back in the limo, stop off somewhere for a pint of Chubby Hubby, and head home to watch the show on you couch. Your heart’s clearly not in it.


Mika Newton

 Gown by Victoria’s Secret.

Miranda Lambert in Pavoni

 We have this thing about dresses that match the hair color. Makes our eyes twitch.


Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad Couture

We can’t decide if this is too much dress for her or too much dress for the Grammys, but it’s not working here. It’s a stunning dress, but she might not be woman enough to pull it off.

    I actually think Katy Perry looked pretty amazing last night. Loved the blues together.

    • I didn’t love the hair, but I loved the blue of the dress and thought it was very pretty–am I showing my age by liking something that leaves a little something to the imagination? 
      P.S.  Joyce DiDonato is fabulous!

        Love Joyce DiDonato!  Always nice to see opera singers get on the red carpet.

      Agree wholeheartedly; there was just one teeny problem — she needed a better bra. Other than that, unconventional and gorgeous.

      • Anonymous

        I couldn’t decide if it was a bra thing or a neckline thing, but for the most part I thought she looked lovely.  That was a beautiful dress.

    • Anonymous

      Agreed. She actually managed to look both Rock-n-Roll and elegant at the same time- something many women tried and failed at. 

    • BerlinerNYC

       YES. I don’t even get not liking it. Her look was—for once—understated. She didn’t wear a crazy wig or feel the need to wear a dress that screamed BOOBS. I’m always on the fence about her, but I thought the look was fresh and beautiful. (And of course the rack is still there—it’s not like she wore a muumuu.)

      • Anonymous

         I thought she looked so elegant. I remember my mom came in the room and the first thing she said was, “that woman has a beautiful neck.” I just think that’s so nice and old school.

    •  Agree – beautiful color on her, even with the blue hair.

    • Anonymous

      I thought the color on her was amazing with the hair- yes. But the dress in terms of style was incredibly aging. she went from young and crazy to [insert middle aged actress of the moment’s name here]’s golden globes gown. not sure if I liked that. And yes to the person who noticed the boob issue. with a dress this covered there’s no need to be without killer undergarments to make your bod look its best.
      Few thoughts on two other looks: hat dress on D’manti is assault with a deadly weapon. that is all. as for Taylor, she manages to make even the most interesting garments a snooze fest. not only is it too much dress for her, its about 10-15 yrs older than her, its too close to her hair color, and she slouches too much so she doesnt even work it, and the dress doesnt fit well, and on and on and…. basically, girl thats NOT your dress. And you need more gays to make you look more interesting and more your age.

      • Taylor Swift looks like she thinks she’s being coronated (for what, I don’t know). For real, that dress is gorgeous, but it looks ridiculous on her.

      • Anonymous

        Am I the only person who noticed that you can see through her dress?  I would think that might possibly limit undergarment choices.

        QFT. This dress looked like Katy Perry went to the Grammy’s to do an homage to matronly looks (this was going to be the Queen Mum, but the Queen Mum dressed better than this). It needed to be MUCH better fitted for her to carry it off.

        Absolutely right about Taylor. I want to see someone with the right presence and maturity in that stunning dress, though–maybe Iman?

    • Loved the blues too, but I thought the shape of the dress made her look super matronly. The colour was perfect though.

    • Karn Mazzei

      I liked her look, too.  But I also think she was reminiscent of a blue version of the Heat Miser  (

    • Agreed.  She looks stunning.

    • Anonymous

      Agreed. The hair was not bad enough to ruin the whole look. In fact I’d put her as #1 or #2 Best Dressed.

    • Amy Ellinger

      Agreed, she was one of my best-dresses last night.

    I love Bonnie Raitt. Just keepin’ it real.

    Yeah, like a hand striking me across the face. Seriously, wtf. She looks like a trainwreck, along with about 95% of the people who showed up to this thing.

          I received my new Bazaar this morning. Gwyneth Paltrow is wearing the same dress in a long version, sub-titled “Gwyneth Revealed”!!! I showed it to my husband. He said she needs grannies under that. The lack of dress on Gwyneth is by Anthony Vaccarello. Disgustingly horrible on both women.

        How do you walk in that dress? That I’d like to see. I can’t imagine how you walk without showing off the goods.

  • Taylor Swift would have to be Elizabeth Taylor to pull THAT dress off.

    Dianna Ross’s wig is slowly but surely forcing her head into her body- her face will be peaking out of her cleavage very soon.

  • I felt the same about Taylor’s dress. My thought was, hot damn, Nicole Kidman would kill in that dress.  Loved Katy Perry’s dress, but that blue hair with whatever is going on at her roots drives me bananas.   Alicia Arden :those are not your shoes either. Adam Levine is gorgeous, the supermodel arm candy looks ridiculous. Call Gisele dear and get some pointers.  You got the man honey, no need to keep up with the advertisements. Amber Rose can go away now.

      The whole dress looks like something that came out of a little plastic ball that she got by putting quarters in the machine so she could grab it with ‘the claw.’

    Cate Blanchett would look stunning in Taylor Swift’s dress.
    Adam Levine’s girlfriend looks painfully inappropriate. I wonder if at any point during the night she looked around and wished she had a bath robe or at least something to cover herself with? I’m all for flaunting it if you’ve got it, and lord knows she’s got it, but that goes beyond flaunting.

    • Should have scrolled down before I commented above. Cate Blanchett FTW.

      She forgot the rest of her clothes, just as she forgot the rest of her last name.

    Mika Newton’s would be a great costume for a vampire spoof film.

    Did somebody drop a safe on Diana Ross?   She looks very… squished.

    On Julianne Hough, I have to admit–I thought she was Jennifer Aniston until I read the text.  Homage is one thing, but that was just weird.  She may as well have had her hair done in The Rachel at that point–at least it would be imitation at the same phase of life.

    I kind of think Taylor Swift looks awesome. It might be too much for the Grammys (okay, it definitely is), but that’s a gorgeous dress–risky for her–with interesting, less cloying makeup and styling. I just love that dress and think she looks fascinating–I still hate her music, but it makes me think there might be something to her as a person after all.

    •  I agree re: the dress, especially because she tends to go the “I’m a Country Princess” route with her formal gear.

    •  Her Sally Field act is getting OLD now. Like seriously girl, people like you, smile, bow, thank them, wave, appreciate it but the doe-eyed “OMG YOU REALLY DO LOVE ME” look is so freaking done.

    I really really like Taylor Swift’s dress, makeup and entire look (three things I have pretty much never, ever liked about Taylor Swift even once, let alone all three at the same time), but it is so very much an Oscars look, not a Grammys look.

    The one surefire way to distinguish Julianne Hough from Jennifer Aniston is that she’s wearing an actual dress, with an actual visible-without-the-use-of-an-electron-microscope skirt.

    Oh Anne V: you shouldn’t need a full pubic waxing in order to wear a dress. Really now.

    D’manti’s pubic feathers are deeply disturbing.

    • Me too. I’m pretty pale and I know which colors I need to steer clear of because they’re either too close to my skin tone or they make me look sick/sallow. You’d think stylists would know better. 

      • Call me Bee

        Agreed.  As a life-long pale-skinned blond, there were certain colors from which I stayed away–anything yellow, anything…well… skin-colored.  Makes you look sick and/or naked.  Not a good look for anyone.

    Diana Ross, Miss-Ross-To-You, has transformed herself into a Jewish bubbe.
    Famed chanteuse Jane Seymour … wait, what? … looks really really short.

    Julianne said Ryan picked out that dress.
    Katy Perry seems to have fixed the haircolor. it’s more saturated and showing less roots. The problem is the whole look is too mature. Other than the colof, the hair and dress  could be worn by Helen Miren.

    • Ohhhhh, Julianne. Bless her heart. And I’m thinking Katy can’t let the Smurf thing go.

    you gotta bow down to Bonnie Raitt cause she is Bonnie Raitt. 

    • MilaXX

      agreed, I bet she thought that shirt was dressing up. Bonnie has never been one for glam.

    That is Nicole Kidman’s dress, not Taylor Swift’s.  You’re right, Taylor is not (and will never be) enough woman for that dress.

    Alicia Arden looks like the one who should be laying the egg this year.

    Is Julianne Hough still pretending to be “dating” Ryan Seacrest?

  • Allyson Wells

    Katy’s dress was beautiful! It would have been even better with the super-dark hair she typically sports. I know we haven’t gotten to Gaga yet, but I’m not sure she even walked the red carpet…. does anyone know? I assume she had something very different planned and then changed into a funeral-esque outfit for Whitney. She probably skipped the red carpet for that same reason… just a guess though!

  • Taylor Swift looks lost in that dress. Too much dress for her and the Grammys.

  • Call me Bee

    Oh you are so right about Taylor Swift and that dress.  Did not watch the broadcast save for watching her walk to the microphone in that frock–it wore her–not the other way around, 
    AND WHAT’S WITH THE PUDDLING??!?!  Everyone has hems draggin’ and who can walk like that? 
    Sorry–it hurts my seamstress DNA to see that…

    • Then you missed the grandma farmer dress she wore for her actual song, which was unlistenable AND unwatchable.

  • I think Zoe Saldana could have made Taylor’s dress WERQ

    Mika Newton is not wearing a dress by VS as there is too much skin showing.  I’d say Venus, which is Hustler to VS’s Playboy.

    • She looks like what Christina Aguilera WANTS to look like these days, which makes me sad for both of them.

  • Amber Rose looks like a cartoon character in the best way possible.

    And yes, Adam Levine, we get it. You’re dating a Victoria’s Secret model. You win. You can stop now.

    I wondered when Jen Aniston started a musical career…then I read the caption.   I bet Bonnie Raitt is fun to hang out with…just sing and play guitar girl…simple!

    I don’t really get Adam Levine…is he boy band, is he rock and roll, is he seriously annoying…

    I don’t want *adam levine* of all people to look that good. his model-girl’s “dress” really can only be described as embarrassing. Loved Katy Perry’s blue dress, don’t mind her blue hair, hate that hair style. There was a lot of broken-down looking hair at the grammys, it seems.

    Can we just talk about Alicia Arden’s shoes?  I mean WHAT. WAS. SHE. THINKING. 

  • Judy_J

    I don’t know who the following people are, but I’m gonna critique them just the same: Anne V looks like she belongs at the Adult Video Awards.  Mika Newton’s gown looks more like Frederick’s of Hollywood than Victoria’s Secret. D’ Manti’ looks awful from head to toe.  That is one seriously ugly dress.

    I want to know what happened when Anne V sat down. I don’t want to SEE it, I just want to know out of curiosity.

    D’manti’s dress looks like a Jerrel creation.And I love Diana Ross. There’s got to be at least one legend at these events looking crazy.

  • I don’t understand how Alicia Arden was spared the fashion eclipse/”rare occurrence when someone manages to get literally every single aspect of her look wrong” treatment that Linda Ramone got. She looks completely absurd.

    I really need paper cut-out dolls (by the way, my favorite childhood activity) to put the right dress, the right hair, the right accessories on the right person.   
    All this theorizing is making me frustrated. 
    I want to see it. I want to make it happen!

    Kay Perry’s dress on Helen Mirren.
    Taylor Swift’s dress on Keira Knightley.

  • Carrie Underwood looks beautiful, and I’m impressed with Tay Swift for trying something a bit different with the neckline, even if it didn’t work that well for her.

    Just saw her in The Enchanted Island at the Met.  Awesome. 

    And I see that the recording of John Adams’ Doctor Atomic won a Grammy as well.   Well-deserved!  Heck, just for this one aria alone:

    Some of these… garments scare the crap out of me, but LL Cool J just makes me sad. A guy that hot should NOT be dressed like a chauffeur!

    Last night on the Red Carpet coverage on E! Julianne Hough told Guiliana Rancic that Ryan helped her pick out the dress. Enuff said?

    I agree that dress was too old for Taylor Swift, but it was pretty.  They at least could have done something else with her hair or makeup to balance the look. At least a bracelet or something….

    I loved Katy’s dress, but HATED the hair. The blue has to go! I thought Taylor looked stunning! I do not even like her but thought WOW.

    Adam is hot.
    I conceptually like Jessie J’s dress, although in execution it turned out wrinkly.
    Kelly looks incredible!

  • Anonymous

    The only explanation I can come up with for Katy Perry is that she’s trying so hard to be the anti-hot-starlet that she’s intentionally trying to look unattractive. Like, she’s doing it to be badass or something. I don’t even know.

  • Amber Rose is so beautiful that I don’t care what she wears.
    D’manti looks like a comedian doing a parody of a pop singer.
    Katy and Kelly both look fab.
    Carrie Underwood looks like a genuine star.
    I kind of love Jesse J’s Juicy Fruit wrapper dress.
    I hope Anne V’s parents weren’t watching
    Miss Ross is…. Miss Ross
    Jane Seymour wins this round.

    Adam Levine looks gross to me when he’s wearing a T-shirt and skinny jeans, but the man can wear a suit, that’s for sure. And nice to know his date waxes.

    Amber Rose makes me want to go out and shave my head, she just rocks it.

    Bonnie and Alicia Keys together, performing Etta?  So beautiful.  LL Cool J?–Classy opening–nice tribute.  I wondered how many of the women changed their dress choice last night to black.  Looked on TV like there were far more black dresses than it appears from these postings.

    I am pissed off by the almost complete lack of lip color in this post.

    I think Katy Perry’s red carpet look is pretty polished, especially compared to the complete derailment that was her performance look.  THAT looked mental.

  • Put Taylor’s dress on Nicole Kidman and you’d have a winnah!

  • Alicia Arden is wearing SnapOnSandals, or something! And her poor toes are making a hard left to get outta there!

  • Carly Steel is wearing the same dress that Whitney Houston wore to the 53rd Grammys…really?

  • D’manti’s thighs actually terrify me

  •  I think that in this look, Katy Perry looked pretty good.  And what was wrong with Malin Ackerman’s make-up?

    Round two of the worse dressed red carpet crowd in recent memory.  

  • Taylor Swift- it’s the the not woman enough thing.

  • Pretty much exactly how I feel about Taylor’s dress. It’s GORGEOUS, but she’s just… not enough for it. It would have be striking on the right woman.

    Diana Ross, looked like a drunk, ditzy little old lady instead of a diva receiving a lifetime achievement award. What a disappointment, instead of the class act she could have been

    Nicole Kidman would look stunning in Taylor’s gown IMO.

  • Anonymous

    I appreciate that, since Taylor has been on Vogue’s cover, she seems to be branching out beyond those ridiculous Disney Princess dresses.  Unfortunately, this was too much dress for this event and she is about 10 years too young in style years to pull it off.  A for effort, though.

    You know Julianne is not Jennifer because she isn’t wearing a dress that grazes her lady parts.

  • Alicia Arden’s shoes look like they escaped from my closet circa 1998.

    Worst hair ever! What’s with the hair, everyone? Was there a plague on hair stylists?

    It looks as if these people are attending four different events: a porn convention; an awards show; a tea dance; and happy hour at El Torito, circa 1998.

    It’s like Anne V knew he was WAY more beautiful than her, so she wore the Imminent Cooter Flash dress to get attention.

    And if that weren’t enough, her tits got in an argument  on the way to the show.

  • omg cate blanchet should so be in taylor swifts dress – right now!

    Oh, and I LOVE Julianne Hough’s dress…but the doppelganger-of-the-hated-Aniston styling is just a nightmare.  Different styling would have made a big difference!

    And I thought Taylor looked awesome…like a goddess.  Maybe more of a performance dress than an RC dress, but fabulous.

  • I only recognize like 25% of the people here. I need to get cable again…

  • I actually liked Katy Perry-minus the blue hair.  Taylor Swift looks like an Academy Award.

    Adam Levine was clearly the best thing on that red carpet!!!

    Alicia Arden:  Forget the dress, those SHOES!  ROFL.  It’s like she forgot to change them in the limo. 

  • Adam looks like he was photoshoped into that picture lol.

    Too much dress for the Grammys and for her.
