Glamour at the Grammys ….

….. Well sort of.  Deeply disappointed by the lack of imagination, creative styling and fashion forward designs at the 2014 Grammys.  This event is always know as the “little bit crazy red carpet event.”  In other words, it’s that one big showbiz event when stars can throw caution to the wind and wear something really different and unique.  Remember Fergie in that vivid orange lace dress with black underwear?

Ok, it may not be your cup of tea but she was going against typical fashion rules in showing her undies and the fact that she chose solid black underwear as well made an additional statement.  Fergie took advantage of the fun side of the Grammys with this look

How I wish some of her peers had also had this idea at the weekend

Beyonce, Beyonce, Beyonce.  Now I haven’t seen the footage myself but I hear you put on quite a risqué show??!!  That aside.  What the hell????

The hair is SSSSOOOOOO horrendously bad.  There are no words.  AND also, haven’t we seen this dress on multiple stars, in different colours, in sightly different textures of lace about 5 million times over the past good few years????  Come on, this is the most imaginative you could come up with??  Haven’t we seen this on Jennifer Lopez, Ciara, Rhianna, oh and even yourself only at a different event in black???!!!!!!  Seriously, so disappointe

I can’t believe I am actually typing this, but you have to check out Paris Hilton!!!!!  Now THIS is a “Grammys” dress.  I’m still in shock that she got this so right.  It fits her perfectly and I love how she has styled the whole look from accessories to hair. Have to also give her credit cos the girl knows how to work a dress!

Have to also say I’m a big fan of updos with evening dresses, so I loved Katy Perry’s hair.  If you have an event coming up consider her look because it will look immaculate the entire night as with enough hair spray and pins it won’t move

I’m still making my way through pics from the night and if anything else jumps out at me I’ll be sure to write another blog but I mean, nothing has stood out at all.  Yes, Taylor Swift looked beautiful, but it was safe.  Stunning absolutely yes she was, but boring so will keep looking for superstar fashion today from the Grammys and will keep you all posted!

 

Beyonce’s new blonde bob …

I posted just last week about how disappointed I was in Beyonce’s “new do”.  First of all, she cropped her hair into a pixie cut which I loved and thought was very cutting edge and dramatic.  Then to my dismay, she added extensions to the either side of her head at the front, giving the world famous diva a very dishevelled, “boho” look which to be honest just doesn’t suit her or her fashion style.  Maybe Beyonce was trying to prove that she can be a chameleon with her look and we shouldn’t just always expect her with long flowing hair and short hot pants.  Regardless of this, Beyonce has now gone on to change her hair once again, this time sporting a very sleek, platinum blonde bob.

Now, you would think I’d be delighted with the fact that she had very quickly ditched the “short at the back/long at the front” look that I despised BUT you’d be wrong!  COME ON Beyonce, if you’re trying to start trends, this isn’t the way to go!!!  My God,we have seen this look SO many times and even as far back as when Victoria Beckham was referred to as Posh!

Jenny McCarthy, NeNe Leakes, Jenni Garth, Nicki Minaj, even Paris Hilton have ALREADY rocked before!

I’m glad Beyonce has tidied up her look but why she just didn’t stick with the initial pixie cut which unbelievably made her face and skin look even more beautiful than they already are I will never know.  I continue to be disappointed with Beyonce’s hair at the moment and it’s really frustrating!!
