2013 Grammy Awards Fashion Review!

Meh.  The Grammys.  There were no amazing TRUE BEST dressed celebs. However, there were some “unique” choices as well as a lot of peeps riding my pet peeve of sheer see-through messes.    I have little patience for the lack of effort among my celebrity pals below. This is an awards show… right? Like a formal awards show…. right?  When did the Grammys become so informal?  By the way I use the term “pals” loosely.. OK.. I really don’t know any of them but I know they would love me and we would be best friends if given the chance… right??? … hee hee hee)

Lets just get to it.  I cannot WAIT for the SHEER-SEE-THROUGH craze to go the way of the Do-Do. Why is this style so popular?  All these gals are so beautiful and these dresses do absolutely nothing for them in my opinion.


Is this dress supposed to resemble a japanese hand fan?  In that case, it’s beautiful.  Again, this style would do much better on an Olympic Ice Skater rather than on the red carpet.

Who is this? She’s a gorgeous gal — I just checked out her website (http://www.dmanti.com/) and she has  really cool picture in the side bar.  Obviously she loves to be naked– I don’t blame her. If I had her bod I would be all the time.  I just think this dress is a bit on the yuck and Courtney Love side of life (No offense C.L!  Love ya!)

Jack Osbourne’s wife

1.  She’s a BEAUTIFUL lady.  2.  This would be a cute outfit withOUT the sheer skirt attached.  Agreed?  3.  I would have LOVED to have seen her in a true evening gown. She would have ROCKED it.  Kinda like Julia Robert’s dress from her Oscar win for Erin Brokovich.

Miranda Lambert


This would have been a pretty nice dress if it didn’t have the sheer crap at the bottom.  I do like the plunging neckline. Sexy and tasteful for sure– and her hair looks beautiful as well.

Nicole Kidman

DIdn’t you use wear this last week at the SAGs  in a different color?  Bah.  Lady, you are a Hollywood Icon.  C’mon!



I have to admit…. I like this dress.  This is about one of the only dresses in the “see-through” universe that I think looks pretty neat.  Besides Ri-Ri’s nipple action, this is a home run for me!  Love the color, love the flow of the train, and I think her hair and makeup looks lovely.

Oooooo… the sparkly sparkles came out to play at the Grammys.

Ashlee Keating … who are you?  and um….

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals
Uh……. why did you say yes to this dress?  Three words.  Fire your stylist.

Florence Welch

Florence Welch

Eesh.  I’m kinda torn on this gal.  Yea I know lots of people dig her. And I personally dig her songs– they’re catchy and clever. HOWEVER,  if I’m being honest she hurts my ears (literally) because she sings out of tune.  Like on the same level as Natalie Merchant (yea…. I think you’re cool too but I can’t listen to you for a very long time or my ears will explode.)  Back to the dress…. I like it.  It’s fun and silly.  Very Wizard of Oz like.. reminds me of a cross between Elphaba and the Wizard himself.  If they had a kid, it would be Florence Welch. Don’t you agree?  Look how serious she is in this pic….. so deep.  🙂

Kat Dennings

You were funny in Thor.  I think I could be your friend.  We both have big lips and big boobies.  However, I’m becoming unimpressed with you like I am with Christina Hendricks.  I know you have huge bongos. Would love a little variety around the boobies. I say variety…. hahah.. this coming from someone who is lucky to get a shower and where something other than yoga pants and a strapless shirt) …. on second thought, just go ahead and wear your strapless dresses and push those puppies up.  I still hate this dress.  Sorry love.

Kathy Griffin


You are awesome and I love you.

Pauley Perette

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet
I would NEVER wear this dress– but that’s only because I can’t rock the t-shirt dress form. Pauley, you’re super cool and you pretty much rock whatever you wear or do.  Keep on keepin’ on.

Skylar Grey

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

This chick is the one who wrote the song that Eminem and Rhianna sampled Love the way You Lie. She’s written lots of stuff.  I dig her voice.  I dig this dress. Not a fan of side side boob. BUT I do like the color and of course the sparkle. The halter looks ok but looks kind of wonky at the top or is that just my imagination?

Solange Knowles

Solange KNowles

I love Solange.  I DO like this dress. But I don’t love it. I dig the pink shoes too.  I looooooove her hair.

Carly Rae Jepson

Carly Rae Jepson
She looks JUST like Marceline from Adventure Time.  See?

Are ya’ll a fan of the cut-outs?  I’m personally annoyed by them. Only because it’s like these gals take a GORGEOUS dress that would look great and someone takes a scissor to them.  Unnecessary in my opinion.

Alicia Keys

alicia keys

Why does she always smile as if she just passed gas?  (Is that rude or mean?  She’s a lovely gal don’t get me wrong.. it just always looks like she just let out a little something extra other than showing some skin…)


The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Actually this dress is fugly. Perhaps the unnecessary cutout actually helps this dress.. eh.. I don’t know.  nothing can help this dress.

Kelly Osbourne


I think she would have looked great without the cutouts… this dress is beautiful and I love the way it accents her beautiful shoulders.  She really is a pretty gal and I’m so proud of her for getting sober and losing the weight (something I need to do as I pudge around my house as a professional poop slinger).

Natasha Bedingfield

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

At first glance this dress is boring to me.  I do like the color.  She looks like she just rolled out of bed with her hair though.  And the cut outs on the side.. meh…. stupid.

Hmmmmm.. Really???

Lila Downs

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

What is this? Who is she?

Lisa Damato

Lisa DAmato

I kinda dig this.. for a costume. Is that what this is?  I liked he puff sleeves.  Anne Shirley got a dress from Matthew that had puffed sleeves.  But this DRESS.  Hmm. It’s like a cross between Alice in Wonderland and Heidi.  It also reminds me of P!nk’s wedding cake… See?



I ADORE ADELE.  But why are prints popular?  Adele you aren’t the first to fall for this heinous fad!  See Elisabeth?  See Julianna?

The “go on witcha bad self” award!

Kate Pierson of the B52s

B52slady Kate Pierson

Oh my.. this like Star Trek meets sparkle bondage.  I love it. I love her.  She makes my heart happy.

The “I make sheer- see- through look GOOD” award!

Kelly Rowland


WOW.  You know, This dress is mesmerizing.. kinda like one of those pictures where you have to focus to see the hologram or whatever the heck those pictures are. Pretty cool dress and if anyone can pull it off, it’s Ms. Rowland. On a side note, do you think she’s wearing underwear with this dress?  I mean, even thong would probably show somewhere in the sheer parts. Just curious.

Hold up…. it’s COUPLE time!

Faith Hill and Tim McGaw


Not wild about Faith’s dress (I loved her at the Oscars when Whitney pulled out that one year… see?   She sang “Over The Rainbow” last minute when Whitney Houston had to pull out for some reason– I think that dress is fun) In any case she is lovely gal.  And Tim McGraw…. every time I see these two it takes me back to her “Cry” album and his “Tim McGraw and the Dancehall Doctors” album.  I was in Montana and listened to Cry and Tiny Dancer ALL. THE.  TIME.  I love them.

Jenna Jameson and … er… you know, that guy


They look cute and though I hate cutouts, Ms. Jameson looks shockingly dressed and as always, she looks beautiful. I love the striped vested suit on her man.  They look great together though I’m a fan of the Miley Cyrus hair she’s got going on.  (No offense Miley.  I like the longer dark locks better)

Gotye and Kimbra

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Um.. ok.

Sting and Trudie Styler


Rock royalty.  I love them.  I love it when dudes wear decorative scarves.  That’s hot.

What’s up with the jumpsuits? Isn’t this a formal affair?  Both of these ladies look fabulous but I personally have an unspoken rule about this being an evening gown occasion (unless you are Ellen– in which case you can just rock out in your pantsuit cuz you are awesome).

Rocsi Diaz




OH.  And for everyone ruining my patriotic loving feeling and hating on my buddy Beyonce for singing along to a backing track at the inauguration ……… she’s quite possibly the most fierce vocalist of my generation.  Here are a few videos to remind you why..

Tribute to Tina Turner

Tribute to Barbara Streisand


Ok… here’s the best I can do for BEST dressed.  This term is used VERY loosely because honestly, I was NOT impressed with anyone because I don’t see any effort or it’s the same ole same ole.

4. Carrie Underwood

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet
You are consistent.  You know what looks good on you and you roll with it.  You always look well put together.  Also, I thought the dress during your performance was super.

3.  Katy Perry

Katy Perry

Meh, it looks good but you kinda look like Morticia’s preppy sister with big jugs.

2. LL Cool J

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet
I love you.  You are AWESOME. Such a stud.

1.  Bonnie McKee

Bonnie McKee

I don’t know who you are other than you a cool songwriter who writes for just about everyone. Well done.  I think this dress is COOL.  Sure it’s not exactly PRETTY or just drop dead gorgeous… but much like my #1 from last time, this dress has character and was a helluva lot more interesting than the rest of the flops we saw.  Right right?  Not to mention she wins the award for the best hair HANDS DOWN.

Next up….. OSCARS 2013!!
