Grammy Style 2012

with 7 Comments

If you didn't catch the 54th Annual Grammy Awards last night, never fear, Sammy Sanchez is here with your quickie gossip/fash recap.

Adele was the big winner of the evening, taking home 6 awards and rocking her 1st public performance since having surgery on her vocal cords; Jennifer Hudson made us cry with a heart wrenching vocal tribute to Whitney Houston; Bruce Springsteen rocked; Paul McCartney looked old.

Alls well was not on the fashion front. I was surprised to see that some of the music industry's biggest stars chose to make more matronly statements this awards season, with Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, and Adele opting for floor length long-sleeve beaded gowns, while others took risks. As always, some paid off, others will be mocked.

ROCK STARS

Rihanna - Some folks are gonna love your black plunging Armani gown, others are gonna hate it. I loved it. Your ex Chris Brown was there and you looked so hot, it should have been illegal. Like when Chris repeatedly punched you.

Jessie J - Adele wasn't the only Brit who had a brillliant night. The sexy siren went full on Star Trek in a futuristic metallic mirrorball gown designed by Julien Macdonald. Live long and prosper in that dress, Jess.

ROCK BOTTOM

Fergie- Psst, Fergs, your bra and panties are showing. Bravo for taking a risk with your Gaultier Couture gown, but I'm so not orange crushing on this dress. I have only seen orange lace once before, on a girl who dressed up as a slutty pumpkin on Halloween. Here's hoping I never see it again.

Nicki Minaj - Why look, it's Little Red Riding Ho. One of my New Year's Resolutions was to lay off your red carpet choices, but this was before you showed up wearing a ruby red nun's habit with a Harelquin mime beaded on the skirt. Your get up was a Versace, but looked more like an Illuminati. Hail Mary full of grace, the lord is not with thee.

Tilda Swinton was not there.

Saul Wishman:

Jennifer Hudson is the best!

Deangelo :

Ms Hudson features a way of making songs her own without mimicking the artists who made the songs great. She did the identical with “Over The Rainbow” and “And I’m Telling You”. (Patti LaBelle & Jennifer Holiday,

Candace:

Red Riding Ho, ha ha ha haha ha

Fergie looks so dumb

Rhiannas dress was banging

Pammy:

Don't hate on poor Carrie U. It's a recession. She had to borrow that dress from Glenn Close.
