Katy Perry didn’t win any awards at last night’s Grammys (she was nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance and performed “Dark Horse”), but she scored pretty well in the style department. Katy went with a Valentino Couture gown that looked a bit like a contemporary ball gown. I thought it was a beautiful white frock that fit into Katy’s usual quirky pattern but was also appropriate for the Grammys because of the musical note pattern on the skirt. She looked gorgeous here with less makeup than usual and a dramatic braided updo. Her hair was likely fake, but she still pulled this look off.
Notice that Katy isn’t showing as much skin as she usually does. She got in trouble last year for violating the dress code with her rack on display. So Katy went with a sheer skirt, which was a way to show off her legs and still stay within the code. Where was John Mayer? Who knows. He was probably pouting for lack of nominations.
Here’s Chrissy Teigen with John Legend. She’s wearing Johanna Johnson, and he’s in a Gucci suit. I like the contrast of Chrissy’s super dazzling, gold gown with underdone, beachy hair. She’s just gorgeous, and the smokey eyes and nude lip are perfect. Chrissy and John were photobombed by Neil Patrick Harris last night!
Bonnie McKee wore Gustavo Cadile on the red carpet. The royal blue dress is fine even if it’s a little dull. I guess Bonnie decided to bring the drama with her hair, which is amazing in its awfulness. She went full-on ombre with a flaming orange that cascaded into petal pink. This is an example of everything that is wrong with an ombre trend. You really have to see a back view for the full effect.
Amber Rose wore Naeem Khan. Amber’s dress doesn’t look as good in these photos as it did on the red carpet. I think the color suits her well, and she went with minimal makeup (and hair, obviously) so as not to overpower all of the shiny gold. She could have gone with a bolder lip shade. Amber accessorized with Wiz Khalifa, who was probably super bummed that he wasn’t the highest person in the house (Willie Nelson was by a long shot). Nah, he didn’t care.
