Carrie Underwood wore a white floorlength backless gown by Gomez-Gracia paired with a black clutch and diamond jewelry. Embellished gowns were a bit of a theme of the evening but Carrie's was quite different with the ruggedness of her look rather than the sleek sequined looks of others. I love the messy hair style paired with the elegant gown, but dislike the bold black bag - she does look fabulous if a bit covered up!
The 2012 Grammy Awards were held last night (January 12th) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. There were a huge variety of gowns, designers, make-up and hair styles on loads of stars from Adele to Rebecca Black! I've picked a few of my favourite looks and can't wait to hear what yours are!
Jessie J wore a completely embellished floor length Julien Macdonald gown with a mermaid style skirt and structured shape. She added a LuluGuinness signature black lips clutch to complete the look. The dress perfectly suits her (even if it does resemble a disco ball!) and I like that she kept her hair in those blunt bangs as it hits back to her normal look and styles whilst looking more red carpet glam.
Taylor Swift wore a nude embellished Zuhair Muard gown from the Fall 2011 Runway Collection. The high neckline and capped sleeves are something I don't think we've seen Taylor in before and it really suits her - especially with that high simple bun and quite nude make-up palette. I know she wears nude dresses quite a lot but I thought this was a different look for her and one which she pulled off well.
Gwyneth Paltrow wore a floor length Stella McCartney gown with cutout detailing and a shiny gold belt. I think the gown itself is fabulous as it gives the illusion of curves to her figure whilst still looking dramatic and sexy. For this particular look, I would love to have seen her hair up in a sleek side ponytail as I think it would have complimented the belt and shape of the dress fabulously!
