Grammy’s Fashion Rundown

February 11th, 2013

Barely there.

A glance at the red carpet at the 55th Grammy Awards would suggest that this year the event was certainly a classier affair. The CBS Standards and Practices Committee sent a Wardrobe Advisory email, advising attendees to cover up: no “thong type clothing”, also “bare sides or under curvature of the breasts are problematic” and certainly no “exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack”. There are those who may have taken this advice with a grain of salt, flaunting in their own way, but the dresses seen on the red carpet were clearly celebrating the female form.

Rihanna has come full circle, in returning to a softer look at this year’s Grammy Awards. The image of elegance, with a gauzy sleeveless Azzedine Alaia dress that upon closer inspection, highlights her curves to perfection.


Taylor Swift revealed her female form, very sneakily in a classic Grecian style J Mendel gown. Her plunging front was securely fastened by bejewelled straps so as to avoid any “unadvised” cleavage, whilst the backless dress was adorned with cross over straps at the back so as not to show any “side boob”. In short, well played Taylor.


Kelly Rowlands, of Destiny’s Child fame certainly rocked the boat in her va va voom Georges Chakra dress, with carefully placed geometric mesh cut outs along her sides and front. In an interview on the red carpet with Giuliana from E! about her dress she meekly protested, “But I followed the rules!”. We’ll let you decide how well she did.

Wearing a beautiful red Emerson dress, with cut outs alongside her waist, she made a very feminine picture. The Wardrobe Advisory may have put their foot down, but clearly the stars were going to continue marching to the beat of their own drums.
