I can't finish a full review tonight since I have an early morning tomorrow, but wanted to share my favorites. I was surprised by several women! Rihanna, Adele, and Beyonce all changed it up from what I was expecting.
I have a big love of green. It's always been my favorite color so the following three dresses struck a high note with me.
Florence Welch in Givenchy - this is a horrible picture, but I thought the dress was outstanding. The studs on a large scale made it Grammy-worthy and less Oscar/Golden Globe-style.
Katy Perry looked hot! This dress is not forgiving and she looks amazing. Great color and just enough skin (even if it doesn't follow "the memo" guidelines).
Solange Knowles wears kelly green very well. I am a big fan of girls rocking their 'fros. It just shows confidence and a little attitude. I don't think I would have picked those shoes, but I also don't have a close up look of them which could change my opinion possibly.
Rihanna looks so glamorous...and conservative! What a nice change. This natural hair style is so pretty to see on her and the make-up and dress were spot-on.
Adele wears black pretty much all the time to these events so I thought this a fun change-up for her. It's obviously not as slimming as solid black, but whatever. She has such a great personality and voice she can rock it.
Usually Beyonce drives me bananas on the red carpet, because of her dress choices and her Barbie doll poses. However, she is on a roll with me and this outfit totally killed it. The lips, the heels, the cuffs, the pants - loved it all.
There wasn't a lot of va-va-voom with Giuliana Rancic's dress, but I just thought the design and texture was really cool.
Girls were sporting the cut-outs big:
Taylor Swift stepped it up big for me! Aside from the heavy bangs and neutral lip I liked this overall look a lot.
Kelly Rowland will definitely be written up for her "side boob" showing. This dress is too cool for it not to have been worn though. Her bangs look almost identical to Taylor's above, but for some reason I like them on Kelly.
Alicia Keys looks very glam in her gown, but I was not into her hair. It was too severe and boy-ish.
I could be a lone ranger liking Estelle's outfit, but I just really like a rib-drift right now. She totally needs help from the neck up; make-up, hair stylist, hello? You're at the GRAMMYS.
