Taylor Swift in Elie Saab at the Grammys: stunning or too mullet-y?


Taylor Swift was considered by many people to be one of the best-dressed ladies of the Grammys. It’s not that I flat-out disagree, I just think the Elie Saab could have been reworked slightly and it would have been a lot stronger. I did love this blue-green color on Swifty, and she was one of the few ladies wearing a really bold jewel tone. I also liked that she went matchy-matchy with her Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. But yeah… I have issues with the miniskirt underneath a big ball-gown skirt. Still, it feels like she was trying something different and we should encourage that.

Oh, and Tay-Tay has made up with Kanye West, six years after he Kanye’d all over her VMA win. They were seated close to each other and they posed for photos. It looked like she went over to him and gave him a hug. Aw.


Other photos… Mary J. Blige wore this great J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2014 on the red carpet. This looks like something Swifty would have worn two years ago!


Katherine McPhee in Pucci. This is a bad look! And #NeverForget that she openly cheated on her husband with Mary McCormack’s husband.


And finally, here’s Annie Lennox being fabulous. Annie with Hozier was easily the best part of the night. But it was also pretty awesome when Annie totally froze out Giuliana Rancic when Giuliana asked about Annie contributing a song to the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack.

    I usually like what she wears but this is kinda awful although the color is nice. Props for trying something new I guess. Her hair is fried.

    I was glad she didn’t perform. She’s not a strong singer, to say in the least.

    • LadyMTL says:

      ITA, I like the color of the dress but that’s about it. I feel like it should have either been a mini or a ballgown, not this weird mashup of both.

  2. Jay says:

    Yuck. Not a fan of this color on her.

  3. Allie says:

    I like the color on Taylor, but I hate the dress. It’s too mullet-y and I don’t like the weird straps at the top. I do like her shoes though. Taylor is at the top right now so of course everything she wears will be on the best dress list.

  4. Tifygodess24 says:

    Taylor’s dress was nice, the color made the dress for sure. Katherine looks like she needs to wash her hair stat. She just looks bad overall.

  6. Dani2 says:

    The colour looks good on Taylor but the dress and the shoes are just not right, I love that she and Kanye made up though, the smiles looked pretty genuine, there’s a video going around on tumblr of them high-fiving as well, they’re adults and character development is a beautiful thing.

  7. Sabrine says:

    I find Taylor’s dress a little heavy but the color is pretty and the earrings looked great with it. She has her own natural hair color and it looked glowing and healthy.

  8. Lucy2 says:

    I would really like it if the skirt wasn’t mulleted like that. Pretty color on her.
    Mary J looks good.

  9. Jessica says:

    It’s awful, and the whole thing just looks like it was designed purely as a way for her to almost flash her genitals in a teeny mini and get away with it, because you can’t possibly be vulgar while draped in that much fabric. If she wants to wear a vulva grazing mini, she should just wear it. It’d look a hell of lot better than this mess.

    Annie Lennox looks amazing, and not that she cares, but she looked 1000% hotter than Madonna.

  10. We Are All Made of Stars says:

    They all look awful except for Annie, who shouldn’t be judged by starlet standards anyway.

  11. mary simon says:

    Taylor’s dress is almost there – gorgeous color and fabric. I love the color and style of the shoes with the dress. Very pretty. I don’t like the dress cut out in the middle with the Ariana Grande style mini skirt underneath – that fabric and those shoes were meant for a finer, more elegant design. I don’t like the strappy things on either side either – they make the top of the dress look too “constructed”, as if the straps are there to compensate for a design flaw or something .

  12. Dolce crema says:

    Taylor’s dress is a beautiful colour, suits her so much with her tan. Wow Katharine’s dress and hair style are both horrid

  13. Jess says:

    Can we talk about Swifty and Diplo drinking and posing together? http://41.media.tumblr.com/3f095e667c8be57e537797c0205e6154/tumblr_njhx1f0TMu1qfoj4do1_1280.jpg
    Is she trying to neutralize Katy? LOL

  14. Tig says:

    Any info re Taylor’s shoes? Love them!

  15. Erm, Katherine McPhee and her husband were already separated–it was Michael Morris that was cheating on HIS wife with her. And I don’t see how that fact’s relevant, unless he was with her that night?

  16. PunkyMomma says:

    Loved Swifty’s dress. The shoes not so much.

  17. the other Kate says:

    Annie was amazing, she owned the stage 🙂 I really like Hozier, can’t wait to go to his concert in July, but seriously: he was here just a tiny addition to Annies show and he knew it 🙂

  18. Cynthia says:

    I really like Taylor’s dress, especially the colour.

  19. boredblond says:

    I think Taylor’s channeling a 50’s hostess gown look..I kinda like it.

  20. Wren33 says:

    I kind of like McPhee’s dress.

  21. MtnRunner says:

    Annie Lennox took everyone to school last night. Her performance was AMAZEBALLS.

  22. RobN says:

    Didn’t think the Rancic freeze out was cool at all. You’re only there to sell something so how about not acting like you’re too good for the whole thing. It doesn’t cost you anything to be gracious.

    She’s a huge talent, but I’m sick of actors/actresses/music folks acting like they’re above it all as if the commercial aspect of their work was just some little miracle, and they didn’t sell their soul for it.

    • Moffa says:

      Agreed, I thought that was odd. She chose to be a part of that project. And the movie comes out in less than a week – obviously she would get thrown a question about it seeing as it’s her latest work. If she thinks she’s above answering questions about it, don’t partake in that particular project. It’s really that simple. She is an incredibly established artist, she could’ve passed on the soundtrack if she felt so strongly about it.

  23. QQ says:

    I usually hate hate hate anything she wears but This I loved.. the color, the age appropriateness of it all The venue appropriateness of it all, The Makeup looked great in HD, The hair didn’t look corny as is her normal wont.. So yeah Major WIn.. still wont download her cd even for free though even though after that shake it up crap it’s been pretty Golden from what i’ve heard in passing

    also That Katharine Nobody wants to see you on tv or hear your music McPhee dress was Horrible as was her greasy-but-fresh out the shower hair???! It looked like when my sister tells my niece to go put conditioner to detangle after a shower and it’s jut plastered to her scalp

  24. BooBooLaRue says:

    Can I just rant about how much I loathe this hair style of Swifty’s? LOATHE LOATHE LOATHE. Thank you. Love the shoes though.

    • QQ says:

      I will joint you in Rant forevermore .. that sh!t looks so Mom-Hair.. it’s better than the Angel Curls with the Leave out straight bangs Tho.. let’s give her THAT

      • stacat1 says:

        be nice to the mom hair…..I agree no excuse for Taylor to have it…but it ain’t easy for us who have it… 🙂

  25. I Choose Me says:

    Huh. I kinda dig it for some reason. I love the colour and her legs look amazing.

    Loving Mary J. Blige’s outfit as well.

  26. Andrea says:

    Is it just me or did her arms look unusually tiny to you?

  27. Rachel says:

    At first glance, I looked at the Mary J. Blige pic and thought, “What is Nene Leakes doing at the Grammy’s” Weird.

  28. stacat1 says:

    For Taylor- the bodice worked..not sure about the skirts. BUT the color saved it…I’m obsessed with this color/fabric…aquamaine/turquoise/marine green?? Don’t know color it is..but it’s amazeballs.

  29. Noella says:

    Can we make a tab for Hozier please? Even though he has barely any sort of gossip around him? haha

  30. Bread and Circuses says:

    I love Taylor’s dress, mullet and all — and usually I hate those things in every incarnation! The colour and the tonal variation are really pretty.

    Love Mary J Blige’s hair and makeup in particular; she looks gorgeous!

  31. Nice color on Taylor, but chopped up.

  32. Goodnight says:

    I wish Annie hadn’t covered up quite so much, or had maybe worn colour, but she is such a classy lady and such a talent and a delight. Love her so much!

  33. SamiHami says:

    Katherine’s dress looks like something Kim K would wear (only hers would be at least 2 sizes too small)
