Style Moments | 2010 Grammy Awards

The Grammy Awards Red Carpet was by far the most daring and most exciting of the season. Would you expect any less from some of the most creative minds in entertainment? Here are my top picks for the night:

When I first saw Rihanna in the 360 cam on E!'s red carpet pre-show in this Elie Saab creation, I was skeptical. When she took the stage to accept her award for best collaboration with JayZ ... I was floored. She was a vision in cream! Fashion-forward, perfect color for her skin tone, great fit to show off her figure without being vulgar and the Neil Lane jewels were the perfect frosting for this look. LOVED it!!!

Mary J. Blige
I think Mary is having one of her best fashion year's ever. Following her impeccable appearance on the Hope for Haiti telethon, she arrived on the Grammy Red Carpet looking every bit the diva she is in a fuschia Gucci gown. I do wish she had gone with a different color for her Gucci clutch, but the Lorraine Schwartz jewelry is a great compliment to the gown.

Lea Michele
I truly believe that Lea is learning from each red carpet appearance and adjusting her look as she journeys through this red carpet season. After a wardrobe malfunction with her first dress (it apparently was too sheer for the carpet), she arrived in this navy blue Romona Keveza one-shoulder short dress looking young, flirty and fun. I'm ready to run out and buy this dress, which she paired with Lorraine Scwartz jewels.

Miley Cyrus
I have to give credit where credit is due and I really liked Miley's Grammy look. In Herve Leger she was edgy yet appropriate for such a young girl at only 17. Although I do wish she would let up on the extensions. I'd definitely rock this dress and think she looked good in it.

Jennifer Hudson
JHuds is looking more and more gorgeous by the day! She looks as though she was poured into this Victoria Beckham dress and it shows off her post-baby figure perfectly. While I do wish she had put on a little bit of glitz (and got rid of those tights), she looks absolutely divine. 

Lady Gaga
You can't talk about the Grammy's without mentioning Lady Gaga. Always on the cutting edge of fashion, Gaga arrived in this custom Giorgio Armani Prive sparkled confection. MOST people would never wear this, but I actually thought she looked amazing. 


  1. love love love the pics. I too was giving rihanna the side eye, but she rocked that dress like only she could. lea michelle has been hitting each award show - love it, especially as a newcomer to the carpet. you're so right on mary - she is having a great run in fashion. she shows off her grea figure - i loved her royal blue performance dress, too!

  2. whoops - meant to add JHUD was my fave look of the night. love the dress, the hair, everything. she looked amazing and fresh faced, and repped for the thickums :)

  3. Loved Rihanna's dress too and ladgy Gaga's outfit.
