J Hud in a futuristic, waist cinching dress from the Victoria Beckham Collection
The Grammys is an award show where artists are allowed to use fashion as a platform to show another side of their creativity. Unlike the nominees at the Emmys or the Oscars, The Grammy attendees don’t make up a sea of black tuxedos and frilly chiffon. Instead, the crowd is always filled with clothing created from unique shapes and colors across the spectrum. Even though the actual show was a little lack luster this year, the fashions of the night were the main focal point from the red carpet until the end of the production. Armani Prive was one of the popular designers worn throughout the night by beyonce (on the red carpet) andLady Ga Ga (red carpet and performance), and military and utilitarian influence seemed to dominate the stage (Jamie Foxx’s Military inspired blazer, Black Eyed Peas performance costumes, Beyonce’s Chain link dress, Beyonce’s leather Versace performance get up). Jennifer Hudson showed off her new slimmer, after-the-baby Bod in a waist cinching gown from the Victoria Beckham collection, while JLo accentuated her signature curves in a form fitting, asymmetrical gown by Versace (one of my favorites). Miley Cyrus kept her look young and funky with a banded gown by Herve Leger complete with pointed shoulder pads, lace inserts and a jungle green tie dye pattern, while the Young Money Crew kept it basic with fitted jeans, Screen printed tees and Nike Blazers. Overall, music’s favorites did a great job at displaying the array of fashions available during the current season, and it is evident that Haute Couture is beginning to take over the scene with its futuristic silhouettes. Don’t be surprised if you see renditions of Couture creations in a mass market store near you!
