Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad at the Clive Davis pre-Grammy party: best-dressed?


Here are some photos from last night’s annual Clive Davis pre-Grammy party. This year, Clive got a decent blend of old-school talents and the younger crowd. The Grammys feel a bit weird this year… almost like they’re actively trying to tone down the more controversial people and like they’re trying to award the more original talents? Maybe that’s just a pipe dream though. Anyway, let’s talk about fashion. Taylor Swift was one of the biggest names at Clive’s party – she wore this Zuhair Murad which I’m almost positive we’ve seen in gown-form on Jennifer Lopez in the past. Murad is an interesting choice for Swifty, and I haven’t given her enough credit for subtly phasing out her “default” princess-gowns in pastel colors.


Kelly Osbourne and family… hunter green is not her color and blunt-cut bangs are not flattering on her. Disaster.


Jennifer Hudson in Christopher Kane. The dress is meh to me, but from the neck up, J-Hud looks FANTASTIC. Right? I love the length of her hair right now and the way she’s styling it.


Jessie J’s hair finally grew in. I’m not sure if this is really an improvement, but I do like her suit. A lot.


Chrissy Teigen wore Zuhair Murad too. She’s so pretty and her body is crazy and this color and cut does nothing for her.


Er… Paula Patton just insured that Miley Cyrus was never going to be the worst-dressed of the evening. Paula wore this too-small, too-awful, too-gross Mireille Dagher Couture gown. Her boobs are sending an SOS. I could have sworn this was Marchesa too.


As for Miley Cyrus, she wore Calvin Klein. Is it just me or does she look kind of cute here?

    Love Taylor’s makeup and hairstyle but her dress is awful, the top is fine but with that skirt it just seems a cheap skating-outfit!

    You’re right, Miley looks really cute!

  2. Kiddo says:

    I’m not a fan of Swift, but she can wear the hell out of clothes. I think I would have hated the ruffles at the hem on anyone else, but there she is carrying it off.

    Miley looks positively adorable and sexy at the same time, this is a great look for her. The make-up and hair is perfect.

  3. Laura says:

    That’s the best I’v seen Miley look in a while. And Paula Pattons dress SCREAMS Marchesa ice-skater fug.

  4. Marnie says:

    Even though Kelly Osbourne is on the fashion police, her style is more often a miss than a hit.

  5. Vera says:

    Taylor looks great.
    Jennifer for the win.
    Jessie J. is rocking that suit.
    Miley does look cute. Not so sure about that coat, though.
    Kelly needs to ditch that hair color. Stat!
    Paula is a beautiful woman who desperately needs a style intervention. Will someone please help her!

  6. Melissa says:

    I don’t really like Taylor’s dress here. I have to admit if it wasn’t for the fur coat Miley would be the dressed of the night in my book.

  7. Victoria1 says:

    I like Taylor’s dress she looks like a (gasp!) sexy twenty something and I want that dress now. Dammit

  8. Tulip Garden says:

    I agree with Kaiser that Taylor’s fashion game has stepped up. Lately, I’ve found myself admiring Taylor’s red carpet looks (the eggplant colored dress she wore somewhere was fantastic as well as the straight white gown with two golden accents come to mind.) Now, hopefully, her mental maturity is finally catching up with her business acumen, her ambition, and her new clothing choices!
    J.Hud looks awesome, dress included. I’m not sure that I would like that dress on many people but she is rockin’ it, IMO. Love Jessie J’s clean, sophisticated suit.
    I have nothing complimentary to see about Paula Patton and Crissy Tiegen.
    Ha! Almost forgot Miley! Meh, at least she’s dressed. My standards for her are severely compromised to I’ll call this a win. I’ll also say she’s pretty much an afterthought and off my radar thanks to her endearing ;} attempt to lose the Disney.

  9. SonjaMarmeladova says:

    Taylor looks great.
    Miley looks really good. Shock.
    Jessie J looked amazing with shaved blonde hair.
    Jennifer looks okay, but this hairstyle doesn’t suit her.
    Paula and Kelly, dear God.
    Crissy is just bland. What does she do?

    • Zadie says:

      I pretty much agree.
      What has Miley done to her hair? It looks amazing. And the more natural make up looks very nice.
      I’ve never heard of this Crissy person.
      Oh, am I the only one who didn’t mind Taylor’s princessy fashion? I mean, it was her style and it looked good. Not everyone has to be edgy.

  10. eliza says:

    Kelly Osbourne should be front and center as a fashion don’t on Fashion Police.

    Paula Patton has no taste whatsoever.

    Swifty and Hudson get A+ from me.

    • Ally8 says:

      She is so useless on fashion police. They could just hold put these cue cards in her chair and it would be the same result:

      - “I’m obsessed with this look!” (Clearly not, as you will also be “obsessed by the next one.)
      - “Hey, it’s Cate Blanchett / Rihanna / (duh this is a show about celebs) so I have nothing to say.” (Also, I might like to party with them later, so I don’t want them to be mad at me.)
      - “I was there and the dress looked great in person.” (I was invited/around!)
      - “The make-up and hair are really nice.” (I can’t commit to a single comment on the fashion.)

      Useless! Also, deeply unfunny.

  11. Jill says:

    Miley looked cute. She actually looks like Ellen, you know if Ellen wore a dress.

  12. Babalon says:

    Everyone depicted looks cheap. :/

  13. Chelsey says:

    Miley looks like Ellen Degeneres here…

    Not a fan of the huge pink fluffy coat and tiny dress combo. At least her tongue isn’t out.

  14. bns says:

    Jennifer Hudson is best dressed. That dress is effing adorable.

  15. Kezia says:

    Miley looks seriously gorgeous! I like her outfit but her makeup and in particular her hair looks gorgeous! Did she make it whiter or something, she looks like that actress from the Goddard film Breathless?

  16. Renee says:

    I think Taylor looks SMOKIN!!!

    Jennifer Hudson does not know how to dress for her body. I think that she thinks that she can wear whatever she wants since she has lost weight but that is not accurate. She is a beautiful woman and she could look LOADS better than she normally does.

    Jessie J looks fug but I like her shoes.

    Kelly Osborne’s picture won’t load on my computer but she does look bad from the thumbnail. I don’t mind her haircut from what I can see.

    Every time I see Chrissy Teigen violent feelings arise in my soul, I can’t stand her!!. And she always looks terrible.

    I can’t stand Miley either but I have to admit that she looks cute here. Dare I say demure? She is giving me early Esthero vibes. I am not a fan of the shoes however.

    Paula Patton bugs the ish outta me too. So desparate and she rarely wears things that suit her body. Her worst accessory is her husband, amirite or what???

  17. noncontentious says:

    Rihanna looked great! POST PICS mehn

  18. Oh La La says:

    I think Taylor looks amazing. Her hair, makeup, and outfit are on point!

  19. Allie says:

    I don’t like Taylor’s hair or dress but face looks beautiful. I’m loving the fact that she left the ugg red lipstick at home. I miss Miley with her long hair. Her face cannot pull off a pixie cut.

  20. aquarius64 says:

    Taylor looks great.
    Miley is covered up for a change.
    Jennifer looks fab.
    Kelly – Jolly Rancher hair has to go.
    Paula – JUST NO.

  21. Autumn says:

    Taylor’s skirt ruins that dress for me. Although I’m not a fan of the dress, Jennifer looks amazing. I really feel like it’s time for Kelly to retire the lavender hair, and the dress does nothing for her. Paula needs a stylist ASAP.

  22. AJ says:

    Does anyone else think Miley looks like Ellen from the neck up?

  23. Jessica says:

    Taylor looks so beautiful. There’s something really 80′s about her face here.

  24. lady mary. says:

    this hair colour actually suits miley ,but that pink coat sadly reminds me of Blohans infamous pink coat ,taylor and jennifer look simply gorgeous

  25. ashley says:

    You should’ve shown rihanna’s dress,she was gorgeous. I like jessie’s suit,shirt hair suits her well.

  26. Jayna says:

    I agree with Serena. The first thing I thought of was a skating outfit for Taylor.

    Poor Kelly Osbourne. She looks awful. Please go back to dark hair, and then that gown, so not flattering. What is going on with her arms? They look huge just like the other day.

    John Legend’s wife looks fantastic.

    Jennifer H. looks fantastic.

    I have loved a lot of what Paula has been wearing lately, but this, just no, no, no.

    Miley, I don’ know. It’s kind of cute for her age and not trying to be red carpet critic-proof perfect. I like singers to not try to be perfect for every red carpet, always styled by a stylist for a perfect look for things like this.

  27. Lucy says:

    Taylor and Jessie are the best dressed, and I LOVE Jennifer’s and Miley’s styling. Wish you had covered Lorde, though!

  28. Lee says:

    The reason Paula’s dress is giving Marchesa flashbacks is probably because Blake Lively wore a red Marchesa dress that is pretty similar a few years back. It actually looks like a hybrid between two dress Blake wore – a white figure skater dress and the red dress – both Marchesa

  29. Marianne says:

    Why are Paula’s boobs so smooshed? They end up looking cartoon-y.

    I dont think green looks bad on Kelly per se. I think it just clashes with her purple hair.

  30. Maybe says:

    Methinks Taylor may be poofing her lips a bit.

    J-Hud looks amazing.

  31. Leila in wunderland says:

    I do like Taylor Swift’s dress, and it is something that I would wear, but for me the winners here are Chrissy Teigen (even though I dislike her) and Paula Patton. Yes, her boobs are so smashed that they look like a painting, but ever since I first saw this dress on someone who wore it better, I’ve been obsessed with it and wanted it and wanted it for myself. I don’t know who the designer is, but this dress is part of a series of similarly designed dresses that can be seen in prom magazines. A girl named Jacquie Lee wore this dress during the finals for The Voice, and her boobs weren’t hanging out and smashed like that. It was also like 3 inches longer.

    Miley looks cute- she’s lightened and styled her hair differently and I like the make-up for her, but the outfit is boring.

  32. cs says:

    Taylor- Smokin hot. I think she has the best legs in the business. I love the jewelry, hair and make-up. I now see the red lipstick does age her. Love the pink.
    Miley- Looks great. I like the whole outfit including the fake fur.
    Chrissy- I never thought she was very pretty but, she has a great body.
    Jennifer- Looks good but, I think the dress is too casual. Something is off.
    Paula- Pretty girl but, awful fashion taste.
    Jesse J- Don’t really know who she is but I like the pantsuit. She reminds me of brunette Pink.
    Osbourne’s- No comment.

  33. Tania says:

    It must just be the perspective, but the Osbournes all resemble garden gnomes. The mother (? Her name?) looks like she’s been cut at the knees?

  34. Sophie says:

    Wow, Jennifer Hudson looks great.

    I actually love Miley’s hair here.

    Paula Patton’s dress is way too short, and also too tight. I feel bad for her.

  35. M.A.F. says:

    I could have done with out the coat on Miley. I must say that I do like her now that it has grown out a bit. As for Paula, she is being Paula. I could get behind her as an actor (I liked her in Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol) but god, she tries so damn hard on the red carpet that I can’t take her serious.

  36. Ann says:

    I’m mystified how Paula Patton, a stunning woman, always ends up so horribly dressed!?! Get thee a good stylist, woman!

  37. bored_01 says:

    Miley looks great, especially her hair.

  38. Maybenow says:

    Ok, scroll back up and look really hard at the Paula Patton photo. Does she look photo-shopped or is it me? Seriously, her face looks photo-shopped onto that body as does the dress. Weird!

  39. Isa says:

    Ever seen those airbrush tshirts that are made to look like you’re wearing a bikini or bra or whatever.
    Is that what’s going on with Paula’s dress?

  40. kate says:

    Miley looks cute. Very “Clueless” – looks like something Cher would wear.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      Yup my thoughts exactly. She’s rocking a very 90s vibe here, and as much as I hate to have to think about it, it’s prob a “new” vintage decade that she doesn’t actually remember much of from the first time around. aahhhhhhhh!

  41. narwhalrus says:

    Totally just spotted the dress J Hudson is wearing in an old Buzzfeed post about the 2013 Teen Choice awards fashion, worn by Chloe Grace Moretz. I almost think it looked more fitting on Chloe.

  42. veronica says:

    Taylor’s had some work done and she looks great

  43. Mallory says:

    Is Taylor finally growing out her bangs? Yay! And love the softer look on Miley, much more feminine.

  44. Lauraq says:

    Ozzy looks great for his age and history, doesn’t he?
