Grammys Red Carpet: Best of the Worst

2/14/2011



Grammys Red Carpet

For the 2011 Grammys I didn't feel like doing a post about the best and worst dressed on the red carpet. Instead, I wanted to just pick some of the weirdest outfits from the night since the Grammys are more about individual style anyway.

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga: Maybe 2011 will be the year we start to not care about her weird choice in clothing.

John Mayer
This is actually John Mayer trying to channel Johnny Depp--sorry, don't think so!

Hayley Williams
Nicki Minaj
Adam Levine
Ciara
Florence









































Gramma Funk
























Hayley Williams from Paramore -- not really much of an outfit, but what do you think?

Nicki Minaj -- I've seen her bride of Frankenstein wig before and this outfit is straight off the runway...the shoes are hot!

I must say -- I'm loving Adam Levine's parachute pants.

Ciara isn't wearing much, but I think it works for the Grammys, but maybe I'm the only one.

Florence from Florence & The Machine -- again, another runway look, but maybe a bit too matronly?

Oh Gram'ma...she is definitely not lacking in certain areas!

Valentine's Day for Men


So it is Valentine’s Day and we ladies probably have our entire outfit already planned and ready to go. And while our male counterparts aren’t known for thinking ahead, that doesn’t mean that the gents shouldn’t have impressive outfits for this special day too.

Here are a few items that your guys might want to stock up on for today and all the future Valentine’s Days as well!

1. Accessorize – Just because you’re a guy doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with accessories. These silver Valentine’s heart cufflinks by Thomas Pink not only add to your sense of style, but also make you a hit with the ladies. Like we all already know, it’s all about the details.

Cuff Links

What’s also great about Valentine’s Day is a lot of guys can pull off red and black. So why not continue the color scheme all the way down to your skivvies? These Valentine’s boxer briefs by Ralph Lauren are made of stretch cotton and waistband piping in the contrasting colors.

Underwear

2. Spread Your Scent – Women love a man who smells good, especially on Valentine’s Day when senses are heightened. Spray yourself in memorable scents Acqua di Gio by Armani. The well-known set includes a combination of scents that are reminiscent of herbs in a spray, a deodorant and an after shave balm.

Giorgio Armani

If herbs and spices aren’t what you’re going for, then choose the Armani Black Code gift set instead. This set includes more fresh and seductive scents that are perfect for February 14. Get the essence of Armani style with just three little bottles.

3. Top Off Your Look – Finish your Valentine-inspired look with form-fitting, stylish clothing. Cover up in this silk cotton v-neck sweater by Kenneth Cole. The sweater has a slight rib-knit v-neck, which adds some sexy without going overboard. The lightweight silk cotton sweater looks great by itself or when dressed up with a tie, jeans and jacket.

Kenneth Cole Sweater

Complete your already hot look with this Sanyo Juniper 3-in-1 coat. The coat adds some edge to your style and looks perfect when layered over jeans. Featured in soft microfiber, this coat is definitely comfortable, which all guys like. You can wear it in three different ways, like zipping it up, wearing it with the removable vest liner, or wearing the vest alone.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  5. Wow! I definitely commend John Mayer on his Johnny Depp look. Before I scrolled all the way down, at first glance I really thought it was Depp! Definitely most impressive. :)

  8. Nicki is being Nicki and I love her for that. I agree the girl from Paramore could've tried a little harder and Florence's dress IS WAY too matronly!!
    Gaga needs to get over herself...she's losing me big time. Is it me or does her new song sound eerily like Madonna's Express Yourself???

  11. While I like Lady Gaga, I think her new song s*cks!
    I've mistaken John Mayer for Johnny Depp, too *lol*
    Chiara looks great, I'm digging her outfit, kind of Wonder Woman-ish IMO.
    Gram'ma definitely isn't afraid to show what she has :-D

    Love those nails!

    Happy Valentine's Day :-)

  13. Wonder when Gaga will run out of ideas to shock us. And I did wonder what Depp was doing at the Grammys - it was John Mayer!

  14. I agree that there were a lot of odd outfits at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, but I thought there were some pretty ones too. I loved the dress Rihanna wore on the red carpet and I thought she looked really hot performing "What's My Name?". The weirder outfits at the Awards were entertaining. I loved the show.

  17. Can't stand Lady Gaga (or as I call her, Lady Caca) and her outfits. I could handle the lightning bolt over the eye...the crazy horns and pointy shoulders, not so much.

    I love Nicki. While she doesn't always wear the most normal clothes, she isn't as insane as Gaga. Her wig was totally from SNL, right?

    Happy V Day!

  18. I wasn't able to watch the show...but I am really interested with Gaga's egg heheheh!!! but I saw the video and her shoulders were freaking the hell out of me... but love the new song even though it sounds like a bit of madonna hehehehe!!!
