Lana del Rey in Gucci at the Grammys: sad sack dress or vintage glam?

60th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Granted, I wasn’t watching every single second of the Grammys, but Lana del Rey was sort of a non-presence there, right? She came to the red carpet early, wearing this drapey Gucci sack dress and a star crown, and posed her face off. And then… nothing. She was nominated for Best Pop Vocal and she lost to ED BLOODY SHEERAN. And that was it. Like, we didn’t see her at all the rest of the night. No performance, no cutaways, nothing. Oh, apparently this look was meant as an homage to Hedy Lamarr!

Sam Smith’s green Cerruti 1881 suit was surprisingly controversial, right? People either loved it or hated it. While I do find it sort of nouveau-leprechaun, it was sort of cool to see a man wear a bright color. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy his performance either, but it was really good! I do like him a lot though.

Pink in Armani. This gown is several years old, but I don’t remember seeing it on a red carpet before. Probably for good reason, because this gown is a mess! It’s sort of crazy to me that Pink got all dolled up in this (bad) Armani gown and then she took it all off for her very low-key, jeans-and-tee performance. It’s weird, right?

    Unfortunately, Pink looks like she trapped and skinned a bunch of Fraggles and made a gown out of it.

  2. Sullivan says:

    Ok, I can kind of see the Hedy Lamar homage, but only because you mentioned it. I like the crown of stars.

  3. Patricia says:

    The dress is perfectly Lana. I love her.

  4. Slowsnow says:

    I LOVE how cranky Lana always looks. Like my girl Theron. It cracks me up.

  5. Frida says:

    Lana looks like a ghost wandering the halls in her nightgown. I think it’s the hair.

  6. Lizzie says:

    Lana del Rey’s dress is incredible. I’ve been feeling all these frilly insane Gucci dresses the last two years and this one comes in a close second to nicole kidman’s parrot dress from last year. just stunning.

  7. Neelyo says:

    Oh yeah, she’s trying to do Lamarr in ZIEGFIELD GIRL (1941), I can see it.

    Reba needs to lay off whatever she’s doing to her face, she looks more and more like a marionette.

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Lana is such a sad soul.

  9. Livealot says:

    i can’t with lana’s plastic surgery

  10. Miranda says:

    Is Lana’s dress meant to fit like that? I like the general idea of it, but it looks like she went in for fitting, but then lost a lot of weight right before the event.

  11. RedOnTheHead says:

    I love that pic of Reba! The illusion dress against that black wall makes her look like she has an 18” waist. For some reason that just makes me giggle.

  12. reverie says:

    Lana… it’s a bit of a cheap 70′s spin on Hedy Lamarr’s star crown/dress… but nah. It looks awful. And so does her hair and makeup.

  13. Va Va Kaboom says:

    Forgive me, but my first thought was “oh, I’d forgotten Lana Del Rey existed”. I think she looks lovely though.

  14. Aerohead21 says:

    I love Lana Del Ray’s look. I think Sam Smith looks goofy. I love Pink’s dress, but only on her. It’s a very unique look and not just anyone could pull it off.

  15. Lylia says:

    I love Lana’s dress. I kid you not I have a purse that looks like Pink’s dress. I get compliments about it all the time. I think it takes a certain personality to wear that dress and Pink nailed it. Yes, Sam looks like a leprechaun but I am loving it.

  16. Ozogirl says:

    I love Pink’s dress! It’s so her!

  17. Anastasia says:

    Why does Lana’s face look so…waxy?

    And for some reason I can’t pinpoint, Reba McEntire has ALWAYS annoyed me. I’m sure she’s a wonderful person, but…I don’t know if it’s the country accent shtick or the homey-downhome thing, I don’t know. She’s always bugged.

  18. Ankhel says:

    Sam Smith looks like he’s one silly cane away from threatening to blow up Gotham.

  19. serena says:

    I like Lana del Rey’s look, it’s very ‘her’ and has that sort of vintag-y and melancholic feeling I’ve come to expect from her.

  20. Veronica says:

    I mean, what about Lana Del Rey isn’t sad sack? Her music is designed to make you want to lie down in a field and dream of the sweet release of death.

    • Jayna says:

      LOL True. She’s gotten lighter, though.

      I’ve said this before, but out of all the pop girls, Lana is the sweetest and most loving to her fans. She hugs them and talks to them while signing and taking photos. She’s never changed from day one. She is so sweet and chatty and kind to her fans that it’s hard to believe that she’s the Lana who always writes melancholic songs. She’s always friendly to the paps and will chat with them. I think she just is a naturally sweet and affectionate person.

      Some clips of her with fans.

    Does this woman EVER look happy or excited? Such a dead expression and dead eyes. Sad.

  22. paranormalgirl says:

    I want Lana’s whole outfit for this charity thing I have on Friday night.
