Grammy Fashion: the Good, Bad, and the Ugly

At last night’s 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, some of our favorite stars were Hot and some were definitely Not.  Here’s a roundup of red carpet looks Hot Mama Daily thinks were good, bad, and just plain ‘ole ugly.

The Good

Rihanna is a vision in white on the Grammy red carpet.

This is how to wear winter white.  Rihanna redeemed herself after the cotton-candy catastrophe she wore to Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party. I love the Elie Saab creation’s high collar, ruffles, and draping.

Keri is stunning but should have covered her boobies.

Keri Hilson‘s blush-colored Dolce & Gabbana gown is stunning.  Too bad the Best New Artist nominee’s bosom buddies are practically spilling out of the strapless, mermaid gown.  That cheapens Keri’s overall fashion statement, but she still looks marvelous.

The Bad

Is Mary J. Blige going to an aerobics class after the Grammys?

The hot pink color of Mary J. Blige‘s dress wasn’t the best choice. Yet the dress could have worked if it was strapless and didn’t have what looks like a sports bra attached to it.

Toni Braxton shows a little too much leg...again.

Just when I thought Toni Braxton had hung up your booty-baring ways, she’s back at it again in this one-shoulder gown by David Meister.  Toni is such a class act, particularly with her signature short hair cut, that she doesn’t need to try so hard to be sexy.  And as I commented in an earlier post, her shoes with the bows have got to go.

Ashanti's long train cheapens her dress.

Ashanti’s dress would have been cuter and more modern if her stylist had chopped the cheap-looking train. The extra gold fabric distracts from what could be a sexy, glittery mini-dress.

The Ugly

Beyonce did not look fierce in this dress.

Although I appreciate her for trying to be edgy and glamourous, Beyonce‘s red carpet dress was definitely not fierce.  The gown looked cumbersome and was, as usual, too tight.  I prefer the sparkly mini dress she changed into during the show.

India.Arie at the Grammys.

Is this India.Arie or Wesley Snipes in drag?

I like India.Arie‘s music, but she rarely hits the right notes on the red carpet. Instead of finding a way to successfully blend her bohemian personal style with high-fashion, the neo-soul singer played it safe and wore a matronly black gown that made her look a little manly and at least ten years older.
