Grammys 2017 Wrapup

Posted on February 15, 2017

Kittens, it’s time to gently tuck this year’s Grammys into bed, kiss it on its forehead, and turn out the light. But let’s be real bitches about it.

Aw, we can’t. Not really. Unlike most of our rundowns, we didn’t put these looks off because they were bad or boring so much as they just didn’t quite make the cut for their own posts. But we’ve got red carpetry backing up (including at least two more awards shows to run down), so it’s time to show these ladies the door.

 

 

Andra Day in Christian Dior

LOVE.

And these two queens LOATHE peach tones. But it’s dramatic and retro and colorful. It’s hard to complain about anything here. We will, of course: not loving the shoes.

 

 

Céline Dion in Zuhair Murad Couture

Ooof.

This is fun, we’ll admit. Bold and colorful and divatastic in its own way. It’s not terrible. It just doesn’t quite seem to work for her. We’d have liked it better without the goofy sash or shoulders. Also: those strappy, matchy sandals look a little dowdy. Also-also: She could’ve used a blowout.

 

 

Chrissy Teigen (in Roberto Cavalli) and John Legend (in Gucci)

For once, we’re not in love. He’s wearing a peach shirt and bow tie. That is NOT something we can just get over.

Her dress is basicbasicbasic. Seen it a million times, girl.

 

 

Kat Graham in Jean Paul Gaultier

Fabulous.

We keep trying to nitpick this hard (it’s what we do), but honestly, there are no changes or edits to be recommended.

 

 

Katharine McPhee in Thai Nguyen Atelier

Don’t much like the way the skirt and bodice meet. Other than that, we got nothing. It’s fairly generic.

 

 

Paris Jackson in Balmain

Enh. We don’t love Balmain in most instances, but this doesn’t offend or anything. It’s just kind of … there.  For all the color and sparkle, it all comes off dreary and heavy. There isn’t a human alive upon whom that bodice would be flattering.

But we’ll give her credit for not “Jacksoning” it up in some sort of cosplay thing, like one of her father’s glitter military jackets or a sequined glove. Not that she’s not allowed to, but we think she’s smarter trying to go her own way.

 

 

Rihanna in Armani Privé

We get that the top was probably designed to show off her tattoos, but her bust has been turned into a butt. The skirt’s okay, but the top half is too sporty – literally. It looks like some funky sports bra design.

 

 

Taraji P. Henson in Marc Jacobs

WOMAN DOWN. FASHION DISASTER IN PROGRESS.
