Grammy Fashion 2018 – Wear A White Rose

The red carpet conveyor belt is rolling on, with Sunday seeing the 2018 Grammy Awards taking place. Rock n Roll’s most prestigious night of the year saw a red carpet filled with musics brightest and best, all in their finery, with many holding or wearing a white rose, the latest symbol of support and sisterhood for the ‘me too’ campaigns.

The spectre of sexism and the abuse cases certainly could not be ignored, especially with Kesha giving an emotional performance, and Janelle Monae making a pointed comment in her presentation speech. A catagory dominated by women, Album of the Year, was won by the only man in the group, the distinctly average Ed Sheeran (just my opinion.). The women in the room clearly still felt that the issues that have hit the film world are alive and kicking in the music industry too.

In terms of fashion, the Grammy’s are not necessarily the most stylish, but they can be interesting. My own personal favourites were Lady Gaga, who went from flashing the flesh last year, to wearing breathtaking, custom made Armani Prive this year. Lana Del Rey was old school Hollywood, whilst Miley Cyrus rocked a gorgeous jumpsuit.

Grammy Awards 2017 – Key Looks

The Grammy Awards were dominated by two, very glamorous ladies last night, with Beyonce and Adele fighting it out for the biggest awards. The two ladies of song were also eagerly awaited on the red carpet too, although only Adele made an appearance. She was, however, joined by some of the most stylish ladies in music, making the red carpet event interesting to say the least, although, in the case of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, this was for all the wrong reasons.

There were some lovely looks though, with many of them giving us a sense of deja vu. The lovely Tori  Kelly had me thinking of Madonna in her ‘Like a Virgin’ era with her blonde tumbling curls, I loved her Spanish influenced green dress too, a great colour and the style was very pretty. Kat Graham’s dazzling stripes were so right for the Grammy’s and her sleek styling was pretty perfect too.

I loved Beyonce’s red sparkle, has ever a baby bump looked so perfect? But I couldn’t quite make my mind up about Adele’s dress. The colour was gorgeous, and I love the sheer sleeves, but was just unsure about the wrap style front detail – a layer too many for me. Paris Jackson showed she was all grown up in a disco style sari dress, and then there was JLo, super beautiful in Ralph and Russo, but I would love the dress even more without the candy floss style ruffle around the neck.

Bonnie McKee’s sequined suit was fabulous, a really good choice on a night when there was a tribute to the kings of disco, the Bee Gees, whilst Katherine McPhee was stunning in a black column dress with a sequin bodice.

And then, of course, there was Lady Gaga, and I have to say that, for once, words fail me. I described it as Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, and don’t think I can really better that – a little bit bondage, a little bit porn and totally Gaga.

Whose look did you love from the Grammy Awards?
