Top Three-Grammy Best/Worst

 In honor of the Grammy's, today I'm talking fancy dresses, my favorite looks on the red carpet, and the top three who definitely missed the mark (in my opinion). I'm not a super fashion forward girl by any means, but I am a mommy blogger who likes talking fashion.  So it's happening today!! 


My Top Three Best Dressed:  

Taylor Swift
First of all, I LOVED the color of this dress.  I thought her simple hair was the perfect mix for the full skirt.  I loved the pop of color in the shoes.  I really thought she nailed it!!  Loved her look!


Jennifer Hudson
How elegant does she look???  Her make-up is amazing and I'm loving that all her girl parts are definitely covered (I felt like lots of girls had trouble with that this year!).  I read somewhere that she "was a vision in white" and could not agree more!


Miranda Lambert
I liked her black dress with small cut outs to begin the show.  Again...thankful she didn't feel the need to show us everything she was working with.  Her leather outfit to perform was great, and her final wardrobe change was super cute.  I thought she was 3 for 3!




My Top Three Worst Dressed:
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
They should win as a couple, but I'm giving it to Kim.  Is Kim wearing a sparkly bath robe?  If that's the case, Sheaffer needs to let her know about the blardigan.  I'm 99% sure it'd be WAY more comfortable than this one.  


Rihanna
Apparently you either love it or hate it, and I am not a fan.  I think I'd love for someone to make me a throw out of this dress.  Doesn't it look SO soft??  But...I'm not feeling it as a red carpet look.  :(


Seriously....take it all in for a minute!  That is HUGE!


Look how gorgeous she was a couple years ago!!  Isn't she beautiful?


Jessie J
I really had a hard time choosing just one more, because lots of women were wearing a super similar look.  I'm not a fan of a super see-through dress with the "underwear look" underneath?  I'm sure there was a better way to describe this look.  hahahaha!!!  I don't like ALL the sheerness!  Again...a LOT of ladies were wearing this, so it must be a popular look.  I just think it's a better look in smaller doses.  :)


And...I don't even understand who these people are, but how could I NOT include them??!

Now it's your turn!  Tell me what you think.  Who's on your best dressed list?? Or...the worst?  Do you agree or do you think I'm crazy?  hahaha!!
  Can't wait to hear your faves!!

Haha!! Love this! You NAILED it! Kim's bathrobe- oh please! And rihanna's dress is just stupid (oops! Did I just say that? Sorry) couldn't get enough of Taylor Swift's dress. Modest AND beautiful!

Mix and Match Mama said...

Jennifer Hudson had it going on! She looked so good!

Heather said...

I have how Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert were able to dress beautifully and still manage to keep it classy. Kim and Kanye, well that's just a whole other story!

Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} said...

WHO ARE THOSE LAST 2 PEOPLE? AND WHAT IS THE STATEMENT THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE? I'm not sure if I've ever been more confused. :)

Erika Slaughter said...

Hahahahaha!!! I know!! Doesn't the one on the left look like a kid?

beaner said...

The last person (grown up) is Sia. Apparently she never lets her face be shown, therefore she can remain anonymous in public. The other person is a child, she is from Dance Moms and was featured in her video. They performed on Dancing with the stars. Sia always sings facing the back of the stage. It's quite weird but explains the crazy wig. Kind of like daft punk (if you know who they are) they always wear helmets and gloves so you don't know who they are.
Loved the favourite dresses for sure. I would add Gwen Stefani!
I do not know what Kim Kardashian is ever thinking when she leaves her house. She must always be so uncomfortable!!!

Erika Slaughter said...

Thank you so much for your comment!! That makes so much more sense now!!!

Erika Slaughter said...

And I've actually watched several episodes of Dance Mom so now that you say that....I recognize the girl!

Megan said...

Kim and that dress!! Horrible!! There were a few women they would flash to in the crowd that looked horrible...I think whoever was sitting beside Tony Bennett??? The camera flashed to her several times...

Taylor Swift...gorgeous!!! I can't get over how much she has changed in the last year or so..I barely recognized her! So pretty!

I liked Rhiannas dress because it seems like it'd be so fun to wear. But imagine how you'd feel if you had to sit next to or in front of her! Ahhhh!!!! I liked Gwen Stefani too. A little sheer but tasteful, I think. And Kim K - I know she lets Kanye dress her, but she should insist on real clothes next time. If you're going to wear your robe on the red carpet, it should at least be flattering!

Narci said...

Oh my! Jennifer Hudson looks amazing!!

kimm atwood said...

I didn't watch the Grammys but Rihanna's dress was ridiculous. Kim kardashian...just ugh...Kanye is an idiot and Taylor swift looked beautiful! Just my opinions

Liz F. said...

Kim Kardashian's dress was too much! It did totally look like a bathrobe but also had a hint of marching band/Liberace's cape/Dynasty gown. But I guess I am thinking about it/talking about it which is what I suspect she ultimately wants.

Cheryl said...

I thought Taylor Swift looked outstanding, so cute, so fresh and age appropriate. Rhianna's dress??? Well, I sort of liked it for her..ha, ha....while the photo of her you showed from a few years ago is very classy, that's not her "normal" way to dress. Lots of times, she is showing too much skin so for me, for her, this was a nice change. I appreciated it. Kim? She looked ridiculous but I'm pretty sure that is what her and Kanye were going for. They seem to live by the saying any publicity is good publicity so whether we are talking about her because she looked ridiculous, we're still talking about her. I'm so tired of her and Kanye.

Andrea Munding said...

That's the girl from Dance Moms? Wow, I guess she really has made it big?!

Jersey Love said...

I love love LOVED Taylor Swift! Always SO classy and he look was perfection! And seriously what are those two things at the bottom.

Can't agree more about "Kimye"

I actually didn't watch this treat! I agree with your post though! I love Taylor's dress and Kanye needs to sit down and stay in his seat! He's a hot mess!

Jenny Morgan said...

So I literally laughed out loud at your Kim "worst dressed" pic because I posted a "Who wore it better?" pic I saw on Instagram yesterday on my blog today. I couldn't agree with you more 😃. Oh, and I didn't know who Asia was either!

Slightly Askew Designs said...

I would wear Rhianna's dress to school... to teach in :) hahahaha Taylor Swift can do no wrong. Loved this post! So fun!

Laci Murray said...

I agree! Taylor Swift looked absolutely beautiful!! I can't help but think Beyoncé looked pretty in her long black dress too. Kanye and Kim.....those two. Well there are no words.

Danika said...

I loved Reese Witherspoon's dress, she looked amazing!!

She's a big star said...

I thought Taylor looked gorgeous! That dress is beautiful and I love how it's ombre... and throw in the purple shoes and I just loved it all!

live compassionately said...

Watch this treat?! Hahahah what! Thanks auto correct! I meant to say year! :)

Wendy said...

I enjoyed your version of the best and worst dressed compared to the "experts" I read yesterday. The experts had both Taylor Swift (too promish they said) and Miranda Lambert (first dress looked like she had a bathing suit on underneath they said) on their worst dressed list.

And I just don't understand Sia. I get the wanting to remain anonymous, but sometimes trying so hard to make that happen, can have the reverse effect. According to my daughter, she used to show her face prior to her big hits this year.

Elaine Welte said...

I'm a dance moms fan (hangs head in shame) so I knew who Maddie was, but yeah, I had no idea that Cia never showed her face in public or when she performed. Strange.

Holly said...

My 16 year old daughter LOVES Taylor Swift and I think she is a great role model for teenage and younger girls so obviously she was my favorite. Kim just wants attention and this dress got it for her so mission accomplished, I guess. Also, all the guys with the shorts suits...?

Anonymous said...

That's Sia and Maddie Ziegler from Dance Moms. Sia is a newer artist that doesn't want to become famous so she hides her face and Maddie is suppose to be little Sia.

Erika Slaughter said...

My mom introduced me this week! I'm a secret fan now. Hahahahaha! Why would her mom let her go to the Grammys with this person?? Am I weird for wondering that?

Erika Slaughter said...

Really?? Clearly I'm not an "expert". Hahahahaha! I thought they both looked great!!

Erika Slaughter said...

We knew what you meant. :)

Erika Slaughter said...

I LOL'd at this comment. You'd rock that look in middle school math. ;)

Cheryl said...

Well, her mom let Maddie go to the grammys with Sia because she danced when Sia performed on the grammys. She was in the video, she danced to Sia singing on Dancing with the Stars last fall. Major exposure for Maddie. She has since been in another video...can't remember for who...maybe what's her name Iggy Azelea???...Maddie danced with Shia LeBouf...all spelling is just a guess...that one has been controversial though...kinda porno with Maddie and Shia....?????.....clearly Mom is not too careful what Maddie does...ha, ha....or like many others in the entertainment field will do absolutely anything for exposure...?????

Kristen Gerdel said...

Taylor Swift looked absolutely stunning! Loved her dress. And I would add Gwen Stefani in my best dressed. She looks gorgeous for her age.

Erin said...

I heard on some talk show that Kanye saw that 'dress' on the runway awhile back and told Kim he wanted her to wear it someday on the red carpet. Ick. That guy has her brain washed b/c no way no how did she feel good in that dress. the look on her face in most pics tells that story. :)

Tanya said...

You nailed it! :0)

I thought that the two ladies in the white wigs, Maddie and Sia (watch the chandelier music video), did a really creative job in their choice of grammy attire. It was not suppose to be necessarily "pretty" it was suppose to be a statement. Sia dosn't like the media taking pictures of her face because she wants to be able to have a normal life where she isnt constantly recognized, and the white wig has become an icon thanks to the music videos so it was a take on that... Honestly thought, if you don't really follow Sia's music career I could tell why you would be confused. It is an odd look if you dont know the back story. Sia is a really successful song writer (look her up) but has just recently had gotten major popularity for her singing thank to the music video that Maddie danced in.Maddie has stated in interviews that she and Sia are really close and that she thinks of her like family. Maddie has danced at almost all of Sia's performances on talk shows (Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen...)

Great comment :)

Sia is such an amazing songwriter and so very talented! I find it quite funny that many don't know who she is as she is HUGE here in her hometown of Adelaide, South Australia.
She used to show her face but then decided that fame wasn't for her so now she sings with her back turned. The big wigs were a take on the short blonde bob that she always wears now.

Oh and Taylor Swift looked sooooo good! Loved the pop of colour with her heels!

Love your blog xx Megan
