Grammys 2012, RIP Whitney Houston, Foo = Poo

First off, “Thank You” to LL Cool J for giving a great start to the awards, and offering kind words to Whitney Houston- the prayer was heartfelt. To Jennifer Hudson; Great job…I’m sure it was a difficult feat to tackle, and she did Whitney proud.

Best performance of the night goes to ADELE!!  WOO HOO! Her voice is BACK! And she can SING!!! Congrats to her many wins!

But then the Grammys went SH***Y.. WTF is with 2 performances by Chris Brown and 2 performances by Foo Fighters? Chris should just be a backup-dancer/ choreographer, and The Foo Fighters need to disappear. They sounded like garbage, the looked like garbage.

Foo Fighters = trash... or at least the end of civilized music

Also, something to mention: certain commercials.  the CHIPOTLE ad featuring Willie Nelson was AMAZING. Good job to them- their first ever commercial- and with a message (please youtube it everyone!). Chevy and Target also had an uplifting message to the younger generation, featuring singing youth enjoying music, and singing for their dreams.

So, without further ado- lets get to the FASHION!

The BEST of the night:

Rihanna in Armani

This is AMAZING. She said she collaborated with the designer on this dress, and they NAILED it. Her skin is OUT OF CONTROL PERFECTLY GLOWING. A lot of people are not fans of the new ‘do- but I love… you can never go wrong being BLONDE! 🙂

Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad

FINALLY, stepping out in something more regal than a princess prom dress. Adding the updo- a nice change from the wavy long hair, or blunt bangs- she is channeling Nicole Kidman in Galliano from the Oscars!

Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier

She looks AMAZING. The COLOR is “WOW” on her… however, I’m not sure of the peek-a-boo underwear… It’s very fashion forward, but I wish it was nude- creating the illusion of “what’s IN there? However, she looks great. It’s refreshing to see COLOR!

Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad.

Who knows why she’s there (presenting)- she is one of the HOTTEST women in Hollywood, and the world. She got to be a little more sexy, however I would have preferred a cream strappy shoe that matched the dress- elongating her legs- rather than the  closed toe chunky heel that grounds her. EVEN SO- One of the best looks.

The WORST of the night:

"Sasha" ??

…Whoever the HELL that is. Everything about this is disgusting. Can you say, “Armenian girl from Glendale?” with that hair & makeup???? And the guns? GROSS.

Robyn

AKA UGLY. Nothing about this is worth talking about. Except this image proves even more dislike for her.

Bon Iver... WTF?

This creature BEAT OUT Nicki Minaj for Best New Artist????? REALLY??!? this is like last year’s upset with Esperanza Spaulding… WHO???? If noone has heard of you, then what the hell is going on? A BIG MESSAGE to this crazy looking “artist”: If you’re up for an award- DRESS like it. This belongs at the bottom of a swamp.

 

Cyndi Lauper in Jean Paul Gaultier

At first, I thought this was Christina Aguilera!! I mean, realllly?? We know she’s a “legend”, but this is a VMA outfit… not a Grammy outfit. The hair? Like 10 years ago. And she isn’t a young woman anymore… No need to be showing any leg. This is an Aadams Family Halloween costume.

Lady Gaga

The new Queen of Pop, Mother Monster, quite DOES in fact look like a Monster. This is too much..  I know, even for her. We expect this craziness from her, but I feel the tone of this years awards garners a need for something a little more subdued. Sometimes it’s about the night, not the person.

Nicki Minaj in Versace

I love Nick, but this is a little odd. And she showed up with an old man dressed up as a pope… hmm.  People were saying it was “so amazing as a fashion moment”, but really- why? Because it has a huge Medusa/Versace logo on it?? ( I LOVE VERSACE, and have since Gianni was alive), but this is just dumb. What’s the point?  It’s not amazing, it’s just A LOT of fabric.  😦 ps: that performance was THE WORST thing I have seen in a long time. It is NOT what she should be presenting to America… how is she supposed to get any new fans now???

Katy Perry in Elie Saab

I will sum this up with Kelly Osbourne’s quote, “This is the perfect dress to match her blue hair”. BARF. Katy- go AWAY! Dress like a singer, not a Smurf. This is the UGLIEST hair. How does she keep a straight face thinking she looks “good” or “hot”???? YOU LOOK STUPID KATY!!!!

Jessie J in Julien Macdonald

The hair is too severe, the makeup is too much. The dress is too busy. This is another disaster, who let’s these people out their hotel like this? Is she moving into goth culture?

***********************************************************************

The “GUYS” … how it’s done horribly… and RIGHT ON!

rick ross

What IS this? This is THE GRAMMYS, this is an AWARDS SHOW. There is also an honoring to someone in the music business who just passed… WHERE IS THE RESPECT??? PUT ON AN APPROPRIATE OUTFIT!! An UGLY a** shirt, jeans and sneakers??? This ISN’T THE F***ING MALL!!!!!

Bruno Mars

This is an example of a horrible execution of a possibly nice look. The pants are TOO SHORT, and the fit is WAY to boxy- if you go with cropped pant- make it a slim fit!  The jacket is also to boxy- the sleeves are bunching around his elbows… TOO MUCH FABRIC!!

Mario Lopez

Perfect example. Sharp suit, fitted well, and a great look for an awards show (when you’re a guest, and not one of the stars for the night). Hair groomed, shirt is nice being color other than standard white. Overall- this is how to dress guys.

***********************************************************************

COUPLES

Wiz Kahlifa and Amber Rose

Look Kelly (Osbourne) – SHE matched her dress to her hair too!!! And Wiz- I’m all for the jacket, but a white tank???  This dear readers, is how you do the awards show looking trashy. Or at least for the VMA’s. Again- these artists aren’t getting the fact that the GRAMMYS  are supposed to have CLASS. If you’re invited- DRESS THE PART.

Adam Levine and Anne V

And the Best Couple of the Night/ Best Dressed Couple / How you’re suposed to look arriving to an awards show AWARD goes to…. Look at them, this is PERFECTION! His perfectly fitting Prada suit, with tie AND pocket square? A MAN! Her effortless hair, great shoes, and perfect Supermodel body in that “dress”??  A WOMAN!! If they keep this up, they are going to be one of THE couples to WATCH!

The Grammys, 2011: It’s All about the EGG

First off:  WHO THE HELL IS ESPERANZA SPAULDING??!?!?!?!?!?!

Yeah, we now know she has performed at the White House, and toured with Prince. AFTER THE SNUB. I am NOT a Justin Beiber fan, but C’MON: BEST NEW ARTIST?????!!?!?!?!? We ALLL KNOW IT SHOULD HAVE GONE TO HIM…WTF?!??!?

Some group, “Mumford & Sons”, (even that NAME is hideous) look like the new cast for “Deliverance”. Look at the tool in the trucker hat and Colonel Sanders tie… REALLY?!?! REEEEAAALLLYY??!?!?!  THIS IS HILLBILLY TO THE MAX. And just watch their performance, (if u even can) especially the keyboard player. Then watch a Muppet/Fraggle Rock video… I rest my case…. weird freaks

Jennifer Hudson, in Versace. NOW THIS IS HOW YOU DRESS FOR THE GRAMMYS, FOR A RED CARPET, TO PRESENT YOURSELF TO THE WORLD.  Absolutely Perfect. L.O.V.E.

Rihanna. While she may be one of my faves, I think she took to a Valentines Day theme WAY to much. With the Red hair AND her body covered in Whipped Creme from a CAN???? (not really, but this John Paul Gaultier is not pretty).

Miley Cyrus in Roberto Cavalli. “Hey Miley, Zena the Warrior Princess called. She wants her costume back.”

Haley Williams from Paramour, in a custom Jeremy Scott…”creation”.  This has got to be one of the UGLIEST things I HAVE EVER SEEN. If that thing was sent to me to have someone wear, I would send it back saying , “HELL NO! NOT EVEN FOR FREE!”. Horrible.

Jennifer Lopez in Pucci. This is the Hottest thing I saw go down the red carpet. Those LEGS! That HAIR! My fave spike Louboutins! The ‘come hither’ look!….

BUT THEN……

KIM KARDASHIAN! O..M…G….. F*** ME!! This is PER-FEC-TION!!! THAT IS THE BEST HAIR (even if extensions!) I HAVE EVER SEEN (move over Giselle hair). THOSE EYES!! (she has best makeup). THE BOOBS! (showing lots of skin, but NOT VULGAR!) and The Slit on the legs….. I want to find her, pick her up, and give her the biggest hug/squeeze, and yell,”THANK YOU!!!!!”

Heidi Klum & Seal. (SIGH…) SEALS SHOES!!! AGAIN!!!!! REAPEAT F******* OFFENSE!!! HE JUST WORE THEM @ THE EMMYS LAST MONTH!!!!!(check out my Emmy posting to see!) HEIDI- WTF is WRONG with YOU!?!?!! You’re who America and the world is supposed to look to for “STYLE”, and “FASHION”??? You let your OWN HUSBAND leave the house in a 90’s era 3/4 length Blazer?  AND THOSE UGLS ASS SHOES ..AGAIN…. (BIG, BIG, SIGH…)

Nicki Minaj, in: a lot of leopard. I don’t know what to say, except: “RAWR”

Willow Smith, wearing Ugly. Oh, GOD, where do I start…..the SHOELACES IN THE HAIR? See, she’s too young!!! she doesn’t even know how to tie them on her feet! (Maybe her parents did it to keep her head ON when she “whips her hair back and forth, whips her hair back and forth.” And WHAT’S WITH THAT “clutch/bag/thing”???? A moving Carousel bag? It’s probably the Mobile that hangs above her crib…. REALLY?!?!?!?!?!!?!

Justin Beiber, in a white tux and kicks.  I like this (because I like white tuxes- wore this look for New Years- copycat) He looks great, eye catching, and PERFECT FOR ALL THE PHOTOS of his WIN (oops..) THAT HE SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED!

Katy Perry. I don’t care if it was ARMANI. Or that you “brought my  own Grammy” ( her Grandma- cheeze)… WTF is with the WINGS? Just because you sang at the recent Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, it doesn’t give you the right to try and be an ANGEL. Your pretty, but your not a model. (I’m guessing she took a cue from Lindsey, and stole them after the runway show.)

Ricky Martin….the sexy singer, the new dad, the now out and proud gay man, (the man whose concert I have been to 2 times, have sat on the dancers bus, have met him twice, AND OWN his  “Bon-Bon” Shaking Armani leather pants from “Living La Vida Loca” tour), the Latin lover that can do no wrong…sadly, he finally did. NOOO!!!! WHY!!!!??? the pants are TOOO tight ( I know, how can that be), and the boots heighth made his legs look shorter and stumpy, and that DAMN TIE kept twisting around backwards. I feel I will see this outfit mimicked in Weho. Ricky, for you- LESS is MORE 🙂 I will dress you!!

…..and now, the ARRIVAL of GAGA…..

…followed by her performance. First: the other day, was having dinner with friends, and we were all thinking of what she was going to wear. I said she has done everything crazy, she should go naked. And low and behold, this is as naked as you can get! Nude tones, and all the dancers stripped down to nude underwear. Am I on a GAGA trend?  She ROCKED the performance, and SHE “whipped her hair!” Those prosthetic shoulder protrusions were certainly weird, but I would expect nothing less. In fact, THOSE shoulders started a trend…..that the next 2 below failed to pull off

Monica…. I didn’t mind it at first, but then realized that neckline is CHOKING her! She OBVIOUSLY heard about GAGA’s shoulders, and must have wanted in on the action. Maybe she thought, “If I have them, maybe my career will come back!”

And the Sadness continues with Snookie. those lame shoulder puffs? REALLY??! Who dresses her? WHO LIED TO YOU??! It’s like “Dynasty” gone all wrong… all that jewelry, the earings, the cuffs?? She looks like Chuy Bravo in Drag!!!

“Snookie?” Just call her “Sausage”.

Lastly, and I really want to know why…. WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING???!?! THIS IS THE GRAMMYS, NOT MTV. CLASS IT UP, DUMBA**. Even HE performed with Muppets! This GAGA egg thing hatched a BIRD, no, a PLANE, no… ELTON JOHN WITH A TAN? It’s just sooooo disturbing. Seriously: what sane person thinks, “oh that’s cool, I’m going to wear that..”. WTF & WLTY!
