Grammy Fashion Roundup

  1. We missed Rihanna and what we’re sure would have been a show-stopping red-carpet look.
  2. Mimosa, named the color of 2009, made the Grammy Awards sunny. (see Solange, Paula Abdul and Natalie Cole)
  3. Natalie Cole looked fabulous; Can’t believe she’s 59!
  4. Jennifer Hudson was beautifully classic — on stage and on the red carpet.
  5. Katy Perry’s bubblegum-colored dress was very, well, Katy.
  6. Both Katy’s and Paula Abdul’s dresses were designed by Basil Soda — a Lebanese designer.
  7. Leona Lewis’ dress … was something wrong with the bust line fit, or was it just me?
  8. Estelle’s red carpet outfit — out of this world.
  9. While we’re chatting about Estelle, let’s talk about her and Kanye’s coordinating on-stage outfits. 80’s fun!
  10. Lisa Rinna – daring, to say the least.
  11. Kim Kardashian’s dress showed lots of character. Thought it was cool.
  12. Did I mention that we missed Rihanna?
  13. Paris Hilton’s outfit – colorful; her shoes were très sparkly and Wizard-of-Oz-esque, except they weren’t red.
  14. M.I.A. was pretty in her red-carpet preggers dress. Prayed to God she wouldn’t go into labor there on the stage in her polka dot preggers ensemble.
  15. Kathy Griffin’s outfit was ordinary — not like I didn’t expect that.
  16. Audrina Patridge was elegant.
  17. Can’t help but wonder if Janelle Monae’s styling team will ever consider a girly look.
  18. Can’t imagine the effort that must’ve gone into the detailing in Carrie Underwood’s dress.
  19. With all the rumors of bankruptcy, and of Simon Cowell having to pay for her house, Fantasia looked just fine.
  20. Jordin Sparks’ chose Arizona fashion designer, Debra Davenport, to make her dress. Thought the fabric was a bit busy but it was a good fit.
