Grammys 2013 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on February 11, 2013

Gotta love the Grammys red carpet. It’s an oasis of bad taste smack in the middle of awards season, when we’ve all gorged on tasteful Oscar-nominee gowns for weeks now.

Hit it, tacky stars!

 

 

Alicia Keys in Azzedine Alaia

 We just don’t like anything here; not the shape of the skirt, the use of leather, or the strips of skin showing. It all looks kind of awkward and unflattering.

 

Ashanti in Tony Ward Couture

 This is striking, but the proportions are off – don’t really need those shoulder treatments and the skirt’s a bit too full – and there’s too much peek-a-boo going on.

 

Beyonce in Osman

 We think it’s kind of awesome that after her extremely attention-getting moment at the Super Bowl, Miss Bey decided to keep things toned down and simple for the night. Plus, we love the ladypants. Would’ve recommended showier earrings, though.

 

Bonnie McKee

 The dress is kinda Xena-fierce, but we can’t with that hair.

 

 

Carly Rae Jepsen in Roberto Cavalli

 We imagine this looked very pretty in person, but it looked deadly dull on camera.

 

 

Carrie Underwood in Roberto Cavalli

 This is gorgeous.

 

Chrissy Teigen in Joy Cioci

 Strippertastic.

 

 

Estelle in Genelle Brooks x Love Collins

 We have to give her credit. That’s one crazy print and she’s showing belly skin, but somehow, she’s pulling it off.

 

Faith Hill in J. Mendel

 Pretty, but a bit serious for the occasion.

 

 

Florence Welch in Givenchy Couture

 STUNNING. No, really. We couldn’t take our eyes off her. We don’t like that she matched the shoes and the purse exactly to the dress, but we LOVE that dress for being so odd and so head-turning. Not merely a perfect Grammys dress, but a perfect Grammys dress for Florence Welch specifically. It’s SO her.

 

 

Janne Monae in Moschino

It never changes, but at least she looks impeccable.

 

 

Jennifer Lopez in Anthony Vaccarello

 When J Lo first walked up to Seacrest, we could only see the top half. “Wow. J Lo looks kind of toned-down toni–OH. MY. GOD.”

We enjoy the display of divatude (as well as the accessories), but this is just a strip of fabric arranged to show off bodyparts. And we hate the hair.

 

Kaley Cuoco in Amen

 Trying too hard. Not bad, but not quite.

 

 

Kat Dennings in Vivienne Westwood

Handi-wipes.

 

 

Kathy Griffin in Oscar de la Renta

 This didn’t look like much onscreen, but it looks pretty spectacular in pictures.

 

 

Kelly Osbourne in Paule Ka

 Miss Kelly can’t really handle the severe ponytail look. Doesn’t suit her. The dress is just okay.

 

Kelly Rowland in Georges Chakra

 BAM. Stunning.

 

 

Natasha Bedingfield in Emerson

 We would like this so much more if it didn’t have those cutouts at the sides.

 

 

Nicole Kidman in Vera Wang

 A bit dull. And we hate the sheer-over-mini thing.

 

Solange Knowles in Ralph & Russo Couture

 Bow down, bitches. She looks AMAZING. Needs more dramatic makeup, though.

 

Taylor Swift in J. Mendel

Oh, look. Tay-Tay’s in a white dress. Again. At least this one is a little grown up and sexy, although we’re not loving the shape of the top half.
