currently: eating peanut butter chocolate. Can't stop.
|I declare Gotye and Kimbra as Grammy 2013's most adorable photogenic couple.|
"Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible 'puffy' bare skin exposure."Boo, no whore.
While I personally don't enjoy "assets" being flashed about in every day life, I feel the Grammys are one of the few places where it's acceptable. It's the combination of art, class and music that just calls for daring and extreme fashion (take a look at last year's extreme fashions for example). If you can't bring it at the Grammys, where can you bring it?
So despite the mediocre excitement of the Grammy fashion, here's my rundown of who shined, and who dressed blind.
Of course, if you've seen the top post, Grammy's cutest photographed pair went to Gotye and Kimbra, who's trans-Tasman collaboration of 'Somebody That I Used To Know' captured the world's music charts for more than an entire year.
Kimbra I've also crowded Best Dressed Hamiltonian and Best Dressed Kiwi. Mainly because I can't find a picture of Bret McKenzie. But Kimbra is adorable.
I can't say I'm a full fan of the blue tulle hanging off her dress, but the gold on her dress and her make up is flawless.
Best Coordinated Group shot goes to this group I've never heard of, Eli Young Band.
I just did a quick Google on the band. They're country, there's a guy with the last name Eli, and another guy with the last name Young, and they have a really nice song called 'Even If It Breaks Your Heart'. I just really like the way they've assembled themselves as a group. They've got a great colour scheme, but a bit of variation to match each personality. And their suits look good. Attractiveness always increases in a good suit (Boys, take note.)
The 'Most Like Bieber' award, for the white boy who attempts to have the most swag.
Justin Timberlake. Who's shiny suit jacket highly distracts me, like it was made out of noisy taffeta fabric. But I'll admit, he cleans up SO well it's hard to consider it worst dressed.
However, the Worst Dressed Male Nominees were plentiful.
(L to R)John Mayer - because I don't like his purple velvet suit jacket.
LMFAO's RedFoo - HE WORE SHORTS WITH A SUIT JACKET. NO.
Lupe Fiasco - because those are not shoes he is wearing...
But of course, Worst Dress Male goes to...
Chris Brown. No matter how you dress, your personality still remains to be the ugliest thing on the red carpet.
On a different note, Best Dressed Male went to this guy, who I barely know.
Hair, check. Well cut black suit, check. Black converse shoes, approved! Is it just me or am I getting a Doctor Who/David Tennant vibe from this? In which case, approved!
And I felt a mention must be given to Most Improved Male/Most Surprised Result.
Now, on to the females...
For Most Predictive Outfit, the tie belongs to two people.
The Award for Most Rebellious Attempt (aka the female who attempted to break the dress code) had a couple of stand out nominees.
However the Winner for Most Rebellious Attempt has to go to one woman, who really took all the attention.
Now we're narrowing it down. Best Dressed Female Nominees were hard to find this year. Maybe it's because I didn't get as much time to search out the talent, or maybe it's because a lot of the talent didn't turn up. But the nominees are...
But of course, there could only be one Best Dressed Female. And as soon as this came out, she was hands down Queen of the carpet.
Rihanna. Geez woman. That colour. That chiffon. Even the hair. Stop it girl.
And of course, to every stunner, there is a train stopper (if that makes sense).
There are many nods towards Worst Dressed Female Nominees.
This was the hardest choice to make, and between this person, Florence, and J-Lo Leg-a-lot, it pains me that she's Worst Dressed Female. Drum roll please...
And finally, the last award. The Lady Gaga Award. This year it goes to...
And that folks is my VERY long Grammy Awards Fashion review. Agree? Disagree? Let me know.
All I hope for is that next year's Grammys step it up a notch. Quit the dress code, bring back the daring looks and the ridiculous outfits. Tame isn't fun. Tame isn't memorable. And that's what these Grammys fashions have turned out to be.
