Fashion was beyond elegant at its 54th edition, with lots of high necklines, sequins and edgy cut-outs. Some of the fashionistas decided to make the carpet their runway having adorned pieces straight from the latest collections showcased at recent fashion weeks.
The Grammys are always looked forward to because they are known to see a lot of high fashion and very couture outfits but it seems like there was a memo passed to come out really simple but very edgy.
I bring to you some of the best of 'Who Wore What' to the event.
Kelly Rowland worked it very beautifully in a nude Alberta Ferretti gown with silver floral embroidered bodice. She proved that simple can be the new fabulous. Love the choice of hair style. Very Diana Ross! Her make-up was just right. Love the attention to the eyes and the use of very little jewelry.
Rihanna stunned all in a very edgy and revealing black Giorgio Armani silk custom gown. From the plunging neckline to the high central slit to the 'wowing' open back all the way to the short elegant train, these features all screamed the 'We Found Love' star's very eclectic style.
She topped the look it with a beautiful gold clutch, Christian Louboutin pumps, simple but edgy jewellery and such flawless make-up.
She co-designed it with Giorgio and is currently working on a capsule collection for the designer.
Alicia Keys was epic chic in a black Alexandre Vauthier number straight from the S/S '12 Couture week runway. Highpoint of this piece is the bold gold statement choker. It wasn't just a regular LBD. The padded shoulders gave the entire look an extra oomph which I love.
Not really a fan of the choice of Loubs (which Rihanna also happened to wear but looked a lot better in) because they made her legs look so short and fat. Love the rock & roll inspired hair style. In all, she look absolutely beautiful.
Fergie was another diva who opted for the 'straight from the runway' look but this time in a Jean Paul Gaultier couture neon orange sheer lace gown.
I believe she could have lined this dress but as usual, she decided to come out really bold with a black bra and panties leaving little or nothing to the imagination. Paired with an embellished Judith Leiber clutch and Neil Lane jewellery, she sure rocked it the Fergie way. Way to go!
All hail the queen of country music!
Taylor Swift was tres glam in a Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 Couture gown. This nude number had very fabulous details, from the high neckline, to the sheer bust area, slim waist, the intricate gold beading then the train. This new Taylor-look is very refreshing as she is known for her strapless obsession. Gorge!
Adele! Adele!! Adele!!!
The top winner of the night made her comeback in a black Giorgio Armani sequined gown. She took this look and made it her own. She went for a very covered-up outfit with three-quarter length sleeves and a gorgeously cinched waist. Another high neckline seen. Great finish with the lighter hairdo, diamond-encrusted earrings and bright red lips.
Carrie Underwood was the ice princess at The Grammys.
She sparkled in an all-round silver sequined gown by Gomez-Gracia. This would have been another too easy dress for The Grammys but for the cut-out back. Love the high neckline and long sleeves. Gorgeous hair sweep.
I am beyond proud of Jessie J. Never thought she could leave the crazy behind and be the queen of the red carpet. She looked very glamorous in a fully embellished silver Julien Macdonald bustier gown with a mermaid hemline.
She kept it toned down with very minimal jewellery, high ponytail with blunt bangs and black clutch. Very nice!
Julianne Hough was girly hot in her strapless Kaufman Franco gown with a sheer layer of black with stripes of glitter over a light gray lining. The two-time 'Dancing With the Stars' winner had her dress picked out by famous boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest. She looked pretty in simplicity.
