The Grammy’s are rapidly approaching and I am getting really excited to see what all the stars are going to bring to the red carpet. The mix of glamour, edge, and avant-garde styles that take to the Grammy red carpet make it the most unique red carpet of the year, because really anything goes. Anna Kendrick is named in the nomination for the Best Song Written for Visual Media for Justin Timberlake’s hit song Can’t Stop The Feeling and I am really hoping that she will be on the Grammy carpet on Sunday night. This long sleeve Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture embellished asymmetrical cocktail dress would really be an eye catching moment for Anna to bring to the Grammy red carpet. I think that it makes the perfect cross between the music awards red carpet expectations and the expectations set for a movie star on a music red carpet. I don’t think that wearing a gown is right for Anna, it would look out of place. I even battled with trying to decide if Anna should wear couture, but I decided that she should definitely go big or go home. Rounding this look out with a pair of dyed to match peep toe pumps, a smokey eye, and a beautiful ponytail would really make this a perfect look for Anna on the Grammy red carpet. Carrie Underwood is one that I almost always have a problem with when it comes to her red carpet dressing. A lot of the time I find that I feel like Carrie is trying too hard to dress in more modern versions of looks that the likes of Loretta Lynch, Dolly Parton, and Reba McEntire would have worn if they were 33 and on the red carpet today. I think that Carrie needs to step away and start dressing like a strong modern woman instead of looking to the past. For this years Grammy Awards I went with this gunmetal grey Tony Ward Spring 2017 Couture strapless embossed ballgown. This gown is glamorous, chic, and edgy; perfect for the Grammy Awards red carpet. I think that this gown would look so gorgeous on Carrie, really showing that strong glamorous side of her that I know is there. Finishing the look with a pair of dazzling diamond drop earrings, Veronica Lake waves, a red lip, and a pair of feminine Jimmy Choo ‘Lucy’ black and grey floral embellished pumps would really make this a major moment for Carrie.Cynthia Erivo was one of the breakout stars of last year. From her first moment in custom Coach for the Met Gala to to the Roberto Cavalli gown she wore when winning a Tony Award to the J. Mendel Couture on the red carpet at the Kennedy Center, Cynthia has really started to earn her red carpet stripes. Cynthia is among the top billed members of the Best Musical Theater Album nominated cast of the revival of The Color Purple. It was this role that earned Cynthia a Tony Award, so will a Grammy be added to that bevy of awards she currently possesses? I hope so, with that in mind I would love to see Cynthia really bring it to the red carpet at the Grammy’s. This Rosie Assoulin Spring 2017 negligee gown likens to a Tahitian sunset and features a v-neckline, a cinched waist, and Swarovski crystal embellishment throughout would be absolutely amazing, and I may be thinking that because the model has a bit of a likeness to Cynthia. The gown is such a statement all on its own that I think that the most minimal of styling would really turn it into a major moment. I would love to see Cynthia pair this gown with a pair of Arunashi fire opal beehive earrings, a smokey eye, and a pair of gold sandals to really make this look total fire. Halsey is a true red carpet chameleon. She never seems to step onto a red carpet with the same beauty look twice. Last week at the Fifty Shades Darker premiere in LA she had a bit of front spiked shaved style that she was rocking, and I am intrigued to see what she will bring to the red carpet at the Grammy Awards on Sunday where she is nominated as a producer on Justin Beiber’s album Purpose and for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her hit song Closer with The Chainsmokers. I want to see sultry edgy glamour come from Halsey as she wafts down the Grammy carpet and I think that this white Jonathan Simkhai Pre-Fall 2017 popup beading cutout gown which features a high rounded neckline, single short sleeve design, and sheath floor length silhouette. The sheer bodice is what makes this look perfect for the Grammy red carpet, but as much as I think that Halsey would go full bare nipple I would really prefer if she at least wore nude nipple covers to add a little touch of modesty to this look. Keeping the look sleek with a slick hairstyle, smokey eye, red lip, silver sandals, and a pair of edgy Cartier ‘Magicien Quetzel’ diamond ear cuffs would really turn this into Halsey’s best red carpet moment ever. Kelsea Ballerini is nominated for is nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards this weekend and I am intrigued to see what she is going to wear on the red carpet for her first Grammy’s. For the most part Kelsea almost exclusively wore Georges Hobeika on the red carpet last year, and she could have her first couture moment at the Grammy’s in the label, but I decided to go in a different direction. I think that this gold silk lamé Marchesa Spring 2017 RTW one shoulder Grecian gown which gown features gold fabric flower corsages and a gold metallic lace detail would be a classic, yet bold and dramatic statement on the Grammy red carpet. A bit of Grecian goddess meets disco queen for the red carpet, and a dramatic train was never a bad idea for the Grammy red carpet either. A loose updo, smokey eye, and a pair of gold sandals are all that would be needed to turn this into an amazing red carpet moment for Kelsea.
The 2017 Grammy Awards are Sunday Night February 12, 2017. I will be tweeting all the red carpet and performance looks, feel free to join me!
