Camila Cabello’s pink Armani was one of the best looks of the Grammys

61st Annual Grammy Awards

I was surprised by how much Camila Cabello’s pink Armani gown held up as we saw more looks on the Grammys red carpet. Camila was one of the first people to arrive – because she was performing first – and this Armani gown really was one of the best looks of the carpet. Of course, Camila changed for her performance of “Havana.” Incidentally, I thought that was one of the worst and dumbest openings ever – if you’re going to open the show with Latin pop crossover, really do a proper medley, and not just a few bars of Mi Gente and then just basing the whole thing on “Havana.” Blah.

Bebe Rexha got a lot of press ahead of the Grammys for speaking out about how many designers refused to dress her (or let her wear a sample size) because she’s so “big” at the size of 8. Her complaints did their work and apparently tons of designers offered to make her clothes. She chose this big Monsoori gown which… actually makes her look so much bigger than she really is. Kind of unflattering.

Janelle Monae wore this not-great Jean Paul Gaultier look on the Grammys red carpet, but it didn’t really matter. She changed for her performance of “Make Me Feel” with a pink, lady-centric set piece and quite honestly, Janelle gave probably the best Grammy performance of the night (sorry Dolly). She was amazing!! And she uttered my favorite line too: “Let the vagina have a monologue!”

    I was hoping Janelle would walk the red carpet with Tessa Thompson. I don’t like the fit of the dress, but happy she’s taking more chances with her wardrobe. Very beautiful woman.

    Camilla’s dress is fire. Nice fit, not too tight, great open back. Love it.

    • geekychick says:

      I think her dress is a work of art, but Ithink she’s simply too small for it, with that elongated (?)shoulders. But I get it, if she requested it removed, it would be just a dress-a beutiful dress, but still.
      she is so beautiful and charismatic, she can usually pull off anything.

    I liked Camila’s performance. Given that otbis most likely that the Grammys asked her to perform Havana (we saw that they didn’t let Ariana choose), I am glad that she did something different with it. Inviting these3 latinos artists was a fantastic move on her part.

    • Cranberry says:

      Agree. Sure it could have been better, but it was still a good opening. Lots of energy and Latin jazz/pop rhythm. And as you say, it seems that all Grammy nominated preformers had to do the nominated song.

  3. Erinn says:

    I just went and watched Janelle’s performance. DAMN. That was amazing. You can tell how much time she’s spent getting that PERFECT – and it was a great payoff.

  4. Idiotsgalore says:

    Bebe said she wore that dress so she could eat lmao my kind of girl!

  5. Kathryn says:

    Janelle is fierce – the Dirty Computer album is a masterpiece; highly encourage everyone to give it a listen. I was disappointed she didn’t win a major award. But I’m also a Kacey Musgraves fan so there’s that

  6. Stormy says:

    I thought Janelle’s performance gave off a PRINCE vibe. It was great.

    • Jadedone says:

      I couldn’t agree more

    • Cranberry says:

      Yea, and also a tribute to Michael Jackson. Best performance of the night. 2nd best was Cardi B. Third was HER and then “Natural Woman” tribute to Aretha Franklin. Plus really liked Lipa and St. Vincent performance, very sexy.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I was thinking Prince, Janet Jackson, and then Michael Jackson as I watched. Loved it!

    • a reader says:

      That’s because during his final years Prince was mentoring Janelle as she created Dirty Computer. He gave her the beat for that song.

  7. Caitrin says:

    St. Vincent and Brandi Carlile were also standouts to me last night during the live performances.

  8. Daisy says:

    No, it wasn’t. The fit was horrible even though the color was nice. And yeah, her performance was awful. As a latina, I love seeing fellow latinos successful but god she’s horrible live. Gimme J Balvin anytime though.
    Also Bebe Rexha is insufferable.. people didn’t want to dress her because she’s “big” (she’s not at all), it’s because she dresses horrible.
    But JANELLE. What a woman. It was the best Grammy in years, so good to see women winning and being recognized.

    • a reader says:

      Camilla didn’t sing that entire thing live and that really bothered me. I realize that sometimes backing tracks can be used to enhance vocals, especially when performers are dancing and moving around quickly…. but Camilla lip synched the entire first half of that song and it really bothered me.

  9. Kk2 says:

    I think all 3 of these dresses are pretty good. Janelle can basically do no wrong in my mind though.

  10. Throwaway1010 says:

    I cannot for the life of me figure out why Camila is so popular. She seems entitled and her songs on the radio seem generic. Just my opinion.

  11. BaeBae says:

    Janelle should be the headliner in this story ❤️ The woman is perfection.

  12. Monicack says:

    Can we cancel this one already? Why does she still have a subscription? Racist homophobic one.

  13. Naddie says:

    Even if she’s been invited to award shows and winning some, I think Janelle deserves even more recognition than she gets. Everything she does is above avarage: dancing, singing and acting.

  14. Sadezilla says:

    Yuck, did not know that about Cabello. Thanks for the pro tip, Celebitches.

    Janelle Monae is so very talented. I know this is shallow, but every time I see her I’m stricken by how stunningly beautiful she is. Fortunately, she’s also a great artist and seems genuine in her very positive views. It’s nice to have an unproblematic fave. Side note: I loved her in Moonlight. She was natural and pitch-perfect.

  15. Elaine says:

    Yes I recently found out about all the racist stuff and looked at it myself… unforgivable to say the least. This shouldn’t be glossed over and this ahole needs to be cancelled.

  16. Div says:

    Did the racist Camila thing ever get confirmed that it was her twitter account-because I feel like the mainstream media would have covered it more if there was proof it was her.

    Anyway, her performance was boring. She has very little stage presence,

  17. lucy2 says:

    I like the pink dress. Don’t know her though, I’m way outta touch with the current music scene.
    I’ll have to go see Janelle’s performance though, she’s always interesting. Don’t love the dress.

  18. Nikki says:

    I don’t like Camila’s dress at all! The color is a bit Pepto Bismal, the top styling seems stiff, the back cut out is nothing special at all. I think the dress looks a bit cheap.
