#1 Kelly Rowland’s Georges Chakra gown left just enough to the imagination to abide by CBS’s suprising skin ban memo. She turned heads all night long in her geometric, peek-a-boo gown. With just the right amount of sexy and sophistication Kelly got my vote for best dressed of the night.
#2 Rihanna wore a custom Azzedine Alaïa gown that was composed of sheer panels of chiffon that danced around her as she walked the red carpet. Rihanna pleasantly suprised me with this gown as it is a bit conservative for her. Nonetheless she looked amazing and was a close second for best dressed. I only wish she had choosen to wear her hair up to show off the gown more.
#3 Katy Perry said Priscilla Presley was the inspiration behind this colorful jeweled gown by Gucci. I have actually seen this gown on the runway and wasn’t wowed until I saw it on her. Katy Perry’s choice of dark hair, peach nails, and minial makeup allowed the gown to speak for itself. Sometimes less is more.
#1 Justin Timberlake who performed his brand new single “Suit and Tie” wore a fitted Tom Ford suit. He looked dapper on the red carpet and while performing. You can never go wrong with Tom Ford.
#2 Chris Brown wore an all white Lanvin suit, pant, and fitted white dress shirt ensemble. While I love a man in a suit and tie Chris Brown managed to pull this look off without a tie. Grammy Nominee Miguel wore the same Lanvin suit as Chris Brown but this time lost the fashion battle.
#3 Sean Carter aka Jay-Z polished off his Grammy look with a black velvet Tom Ford jacket. One of my favorite moments of the night was when Jay-Z called The-Dream out on his underwhelming attire. Frank Ocean, Jay-Z, and Terius “The-Dream” Nash accepted the award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (“No Church in the Wild”), during the acceptance speech Jay leaned into the microphone and said, “I would like to thank the swap meet for his [The Dream’s] hat.” Enough said.
Best Couple: Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose This expecting couple looked great together on the red carpet. Amber was clad in a black fitted gown while Wiz wore a black and white tuxedo. Congrats to the happy couple.
