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.

Fashion Focus – Jumpsuits from Dorothy Perkins

In the same way that the maxi dress was rescued from it’s Laura Ashley style 70s obscurity, and is now a definite wardrobe staple, the jumpsuit now seems here to stay. I can still remember the 1980s versions, boiler suits, parachute suits that seemed to be more suited to a flying lesson or working in a factory than actually being a fashion item. Early 1980s Scottish Songstress Kelly Marie seemed to have one perfectly glued to her body, and that was more than enough reason not to be wearing them. But how times change.

The jumpsuit is now a super practical and much loved part of the wardrobe, and is a definite red carpet staple. Only this week, Rose Byrne was pictured wearing a silver lame version that took the disco look into the 21st century with amazing style. Miley Cyrus, Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss, Kate Beckinsale and Elizabeth Banks are amongst the vast number of stars who can sometimes swap an evening dress for a sassy jumpsuit.

Style Icons 2013 – Miley Cyrus

It is quite a feat to be named both best and worst dressed star of the year, but in 2013 Miley Cyrus has certainly polarised opinion. The days of Hannah Montana have long since disappeared, as have the boho period and the glamorous Hollywood look that was far too old for a girl barely out of her teens. This has been the year that Miley Cyrus was the name on everyone’s lips, and she made sure her wardrobe would also be a talking point, for both the right and wrong reasons.

Aside from the now infamous ‘twerking’ outfit, which made Miley look nude and encased in a giant condom, I think Miley has made some fabulous style choices this year. She has often looked cool, stylish and age appropriate. Despite the high suggestion of sex appeal, I often find Miley reminding me of Madonna at the period of Papa Don’t Preach, sexy but with a tomboyish air. I love the fact that the current inspiration seems to be coming from the 1990s, with a Kate Moss/Lisa Bruce style dress for the X Factor, and a Marc Jacobs mermaid style for 2013 Night of stars. Her new hairstyle, a 90s style blunt bob is just so Drew Barrymore, with strong Gwen Stefani style make-up completely the strong, glamorous, but always fun look.

Miley X Factor

Miley’s style may not be to everyone’s taste, but it is never less than interesting, and when she is on-screen it is hard to take your eyes off her. She could simply have continued with her cute cookie cutter style prettiness and been like every other Hollywood starlet, instead she opts for the trouser suit over the evening dress, the catsuit over the beaded mini. Love her or loathe her, she has made a statement and impact this year that has left others standing in her wake. The future looks bright for Miley Cyrus.
