2013 Grammys: Most Outrageous Red Carpet Couture
Worst Dressed at the 2013 Grammy Awards
The Grammy Award Show has always been an event in which the red carpet never fails to surprise. The music industry is all about the portrait of the artist, and many singers and songwriters use this opportunity to outwardly express themselves through style. However, this is not necessarily a good thing. It seems in the past few years, the Grammy's red carpet has become more and more outrageous - as if it were a competition for who can catch our eyes the fastest (even if it means wearing scales). I will hand it to the artists who do challenge their reputations with outrageous "get up," because it does work in a sense where they become the most talked about people the day after. For those fearless, or semi-insane celebs that turn the red carpet into the true walk of shame, this post is for you.
Gumby Got a Sex Change
Katy Perry took the red carpet by surprise when she waltzed in wearing a skin tight gumby suit. It looks like certain areas didn't quite fit into the vaccum tight spandex, so when it ripped, Katy had to get creative and use her Grandmother's brooch to pin the top back together. What Perry wasn't expecting was that a special someone would be all about the green suit, telling her constantly that her body was "wonderland."
Katy Perry's Green Dress certainly brings meaning to John Mayor's song "Another Kind of Green."
Mama Cass? I Thought You Were Dead....
Ok, I do love Adele. I think she has a beautiful voice and a beautiful face, but everytime I see this picture of her at the Grammys in this Peasant, Partridge Family dress, I can't help but see the reincarnated Mama Cass from 60's group the Mama's and Papa's. Adele, instead of setting fire to the rain, can you set fire to this dress? If you dont, Rumer Has It You might be Rolling in the Deep...
Looks Like Janelle Monae Left the Bullfight Early
Janelle Monae showed up for her Red Carpet moment dressed like a matador. I am guessing she thought where better to have a bullfight than on the RED carpet? Perhaps she's trying to symbolize the idea that she's grabbing the bull by the horns? Whatever it is that she is trying to do with this look, I don't get it. In fact, it's utter bullsh*t.
No Palm Reading is Necessary to Know That This Dress Will Be A Red Carpet Fail
Tamia hit the Red Carpet looking like a Charm off one of Mr. T's Chains. Too much gold and draping in the dress. Let alone, when I look at this costume I am reminded of those old fortune telling machines that you'd pay a nickel to hear a creepy dummy doll (dressed like Tamia) read your fortune. I thought it was a waste of a nickel then, and my opinion hasn't changed. Better luck next year, Tamia, although if you keep the same stylist you have now, I can foretell your future looks dim.
Florence Welch Puts New Meaning to Swamp Monster
UGHHHHH! What made Florence Welch wake up the morning of the Grammys thinking: "Wow, I can't wait to appear on the Red Carpet looking like Gillman, the Creature From the Black Lagoon!" If intimidation was her tactic, It has certainly worked. I can justify the color and the sequins and sparkles that are on the dress, but I can not get past the the thorny cones jutting out from the chest and arms of the dress. I mean, come on, someone is going to get hurt by those things and I don't just mean physically, I mean, mentally and emotionally tainted. The only thing I have learned from Florence Welch and her tragic display on the Red Carpet is that maybe dinosaurs are not extinct after all and that Gingers, in fact, do not have souls.
Hunter Hayes Has A Twin!
Hunter Hayes has established himself as an up and coming artist for 2013, performing at the Grammy's last night with Carrie Underwood herself. Since Bieber set the stage for Tween boys to be the heart and soul of American Culture, it's only fitting that Hunter Hayes, decked himself out in a suit of sparkles. After all, what better way to say I'm an under-age teen boy with a love for theatrics than with a suit of sparkles? What we did not expect from Hunter a last night's Grammy Award Show was that he would be bringing his Identical Twin Brother with him:
Best Dressed Award for the 2013 Grammys
Rihanna in Red
I loved this sheer red dress worn by Rihanna at the Grammys. With her hair back to a normal looking style (Finally!) and with the elegant flow of this dress, she rocked the red carpet. It looks like Rihanna may have finally taken tips from J-Lo's hair and Beyonce's stylist which is always a good thing. What I was most concerned about Rihanna's outfit was:
Was Rihanna's Dress red before she went to the Grammy's with Chris Brown and what kind of bleach does Chris use because it seems to be working wonders!?
