Grammys 2013: Best and worst dressed!

Adele and Beyoncé

Adele and Beyoncé


#1 Florence Welch – Givenchy

I can’t stand Florence Welch. She sings like a 90-year-old Bavarian yodeler and typically dresses like a vintage couch. However, I am willing to put aside my personal problems with her to pay tribute to her custom Givenchy. First and foremost, she’s finally wearing a color that doesn’t wash her out. The green is perfection against her skin tone. Second, the dinosaur bumps on the dress are a fun and quirky detail. This is an absolutely welcome change to Florence’s typically embarrassing style.

#2 Taylor Swift – J. Mendel

I don’t understand people who hate Taylor Swift. Are they just mad that she’s made out with more A-listers than they can ever hope to? Her entire look is perfection. She looked absolutely stunning in this white Grecian inspired gown with a metallic quasi-harness detail on top. Her up-do was just messy enough to make her look refined but not stuffy. Everything about this look is amazing.

#3 Kelly Rowland – Georges Chakra

Kelly Rowland doesn’t get enough credit but she always looks A+ on the red carpet. I’m sure I’ll get yelled at for this but I’d even wager to say that she’s prettier than Beyoncé. Her sheer Georges Chakra gown was absolutely sexy and showed off her fantastic body without looking trashy at all.


#1 Jennifer Lopez – Anthony Vacarello

I understand Jennifer Lopez’s shtick is showing too much skin but it’s so tired. After coyly referencing the memo issued by CBS to cover up, Lopez showed off a dress that fit so awkwardly on top and was slit up to her waist. They say less is more but Lopez should probably just start ignoring that rule.

#2 Adele – Valentino

I was rooting for Adele. I really was. Yet, when you show up to an award show dressed like a Vera Bradley paisley suitcase, I can’t defend you. I know she would’ve caught a lot of flak for wearing another black dress but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

#3 Beyoncé – Louis Vuitton

I never thought I’d type these words but Beyoncé looked atrocious. A pantsuit? A PANTSUIT?! It looks like Beyoncé just gave up on trying to impress us. This isn’t a PTA fundraiser—it is the damn Grammys.
