Red Carpet Fashion: Grammy Awards 2010

I have to admit - I was pretty underwhelmed with the fashion at the Grammys this year. On a night when it's actually ok to take those big risks I felt like a lot of the looks were either just eh, ok or they were absolutely hideous. The show itself was pretty bizarre with a mash-up of musicians performing together. Of course - Lady Gaga delivered with not one, not two but three crazy getups and she had an amazing duet with THE Sir Elton John (I don't care - I loved his bedazzled glasses and earring. I mean it's freaking ELTON JOHN!!) Beyonce had an emotional performance with her own rendition of "You Oughta Know". Taylor Swift practically butchered "Rhiannon" and the highlight of her performance for me was seeing Stevie Nicks, who is in two words - kick ass. And the Black Eyed Peas shut the house down and I think every audience member was on their feet by the end. It was an interesting night - a Grammy night if you will. And I feel like I have to lead with the most interesting fashion choices - Miss Gaga.

Love it or Hate it - The girl has got talent and style. Mr. Armani himself designed each look with Lady Gaga - and he said he was "thrilled" to do it. She's an artist and you can't deny she won't take a risk. And she just radiates confidence so it's kind of hard to not give the credit to her.

Carrie Underwood is always a stunner and usually rocks the glittery dresses. She's really been playing around with different looks this awards season and I love love LOVE this white Georges Chakra gown. I don't always love gowns on the Grammy red carpet (It's the Grammys!) but the silver leather straps make this so playful and she looks absolutely gorgeous! Of course the bride to be had to have a little shimmer and added a Swarovski crystal clutch. Plus her "semi-Rachel" hairstyle and flawless makeup keep her look fun and she is glowing. Love it!

Has Lea Michele finally hit her fashion stride this awards season? Possibly... I am obsessed with this feathered one-shouldered Romona Keveza dress. It's super fun and holy cow check out her gams! Where have her legs been hiding all this time?? Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Brian Atwood pumps round out Lea's absolutely fantastic look. Keep it up!!!

My husband loves two things in this world - pesto and Heidi Klum. I guess I kind of have a girl crush on her myself. This short sparkly Emilio Pucci dress plays up two trends - nude color and shoulders. Seal's wife showed off her fabulous post baby body, sleek hair and these amazing Jimmy Choos. Again, Lorraine Schwartz is always a perfect choice for red carpet jewelry and I am dying over this butterfly ring she rocks on her right hand.

I am kind of surprised by this pick myself. I feel like Miley Cirus always falls into that category where she tries too hard and dresses too mature for her age. She's in that weird place where she's almost an adult but not quite there yet. However her fashion choice on Sunday I thought was spot on. Her short Hervé Léger marbled mini-dress and black gladiator sandals are the perfect mix between rocker and chic. Statement jewelry and her signature long curly locks keep her look youthful and Grammy appropriate. Not an absolute fav but she looked fantastic.

Thoughts on the Grammys? Were you impressed or underwhelmed? Do tell!! xoxo
