The days go by and I get more and more excited for Sunday. We have Hollywood glamour in London at the BAFTA Awards and then the biggest night in music at the Grammy Awards. This year is the perfect meshing of icons and new talent. Many stars will be attending their first Grammy’s and I am praying that they all bring their a-game to this red carpet.Beyonce is a long established Grammy’s icon and I am interested in seeing what she will wear this year. She hasn’t actually walked a red carpet in a really long time instead opting to post her own photos on Beyonce.com and then sneaking in a side door. I have heard rumors that Bey is not actually going to be in attendance this year despite three nominations this year. I would love to see Beyonce bring the sexy Studio 54 glamour to this red carpet (or just the front row of the show) wearing this white Zuhair Murad Spring 2019 Couture suit which features asymmetrical draping, a belted peplum waist, plunging v-neckline, a single cape sleeve, and a thigh high split up one pant leg. It give very distinct Bianca Jagger vibes and I know that Beyonce could easily sell it to me on the red carpet. Fully bouncy curls, smokey eyes, dark rose pink lips, a white marbled acrylic Edie Parker ‘Jean’ box clutch, a pair of white Christian Louboutin ‘Choca Spikes’ studded strappy sandals, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels including diamond lightning bolt cluster earrings and a statement emerald cocktail ring would all make this look head to toe perfection. It was just about a year ago when I first learned who Dua Lipa was when she WOWED me on the red carpet at the BRIT Awards wearing a dramatic ruffled Giambattista Valli Couture gown. Since then she wore the brand again for the American Music Awards and I am hoping that she will make it a trifecta wearing the brand for her first Grammy Awards. She is nominated for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording. I love me some Dua Lipa music and I believe that she is going to go far. I want to see her bring the drama to this red carpet giving us Black Swan glamour wearing this black Giambattista Valli Spring 2019 Couture high low gown which features a ruffled neckline, sequined bodice, and a ruffl0ed skirt and train. I watched this show expecting to find that most glamorous, dramatic, and red carpet worthy moment for Dua to being to life on this red carpet and this one was the ultimate winner. I didn’t want to do the big ruffled ball gown or the classic structure that Dua has already brought to life, but I definitely think that this high low gown would be perfect to round out three major awards red carpets. Add a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Casablanca’ crystal buckle and PVC strap sandals, a sleek updo, smokey eyes, red lips, and a pair of Hueb ‘Luminus’ diamond feather drop earrings and I know this look would be head to toe perfection. John Legend knows how to deliver a really chic menswear moment on the red carpet. Sometimes he goes very classic, but sometimes he pushes the boundaries. I love this burgundy velvet Etro Fall 2019 Menswear detailed with gold embroideries and satin peak lapels. It is such a statement piece that I can definitely picture John being drawn to. I would however keep the styling a little more classic adding a pair of burgundy satin tuxedo pants, a white tuxedo shirt, a matching burgundy bow tie, and a pair of black patent leather oxfords for John. That would make this a real statement menswear moment for him to bring to life on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. Kelsea Ballerini has been bringing the fashion to the country music awards red carpets. Usually when I look at red carpet looks for country music stars I look at the Lebanese couturiers, like Elie Saab, Georges Chakra, and Zuhair Murad, but Kelsea has been delivering looks from more than just the standard level of ‘country music designers.’ I was looking for something for Kelsea to wear on this red carpet and the moment I saw this eggshell feathered caped top and florescent orange high waisted wide leg pants from Valentino’s Spring 2019 Couture collection I thought it would be a really inspired option for Kelsea to bring to life on this red carpet. It is more of an avant garde look than Kelsea has ever worn before, but I honestly believe that she does have what it takes to really make this look come to life on the red carpet. The look itself is such a statement I would keep the styling rather simple adding a pair of gold Casadei metallic leather peep toe d’orsay sandals, a sleek side parted low bun, smokey eyes, antique rose pink lips, and a pair of Irene Neuwirth diamond, black opal, turquoise, and fire opal drop earrings. Pink kicked off her Grammy week picking up the honor of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Sadly I think that is the only honor she will be picking up this week. That is a travesty because her album Beautiful Trauma was a truly emotional album for me. I have long waited for Pink to really wow me. She defintiely did that giving me feathered realness in Armani Prive at last years Grammy Awards, but it just didn’t seem like her. I was looking for the right gown for her to wear this weekend at the Grammy’s when I saw this black and white pieced tuxedo gown from Thom Browne’s Fall 2019 Menswear collection. I would never really think of menswear collections as the perfect place to find a gown for a major red carpet, but this gown is PERFECT for Pink. It meshes masculinity and femininity which is totally Pink’s style and it would be perfectly complimented with an edgy coif, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Nosy’ crepe satin, PVC, and crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and a selection of edgy Yeprem diamonds including a single ear cuff and a whole hand cuff ring. Tiffany Haddish earned her Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album for her audiobook The Last Black Unicorn. I love seeing Tiffany on the red carpet and so I am hoping that she will head out to LA to attend the Grammy’s. I thought about a gown for her, but her category is typically not announced during the main telecast and most actresses that attend that Grammy Awards do so wearing a cocktail dress. I saw this red satin Atelier Versace Spring 2019 Couture asymmetrically draped cocktail dress which features long sleeves, a wrap style skirt, sash detail, and a signature Versace safety pin detail and it just clicked for me. I know that Tiffany would absolutely sell this look to me. Add sleek center parted hair, thick defined eyes, red lips, a pair of red Christian Louboutin ‘Catchy Two’ asymmetrical peep toe platform pumps, and statement Butani diamond and ruby spiral ear clips and I know it would be a moment to remember.
The 2019 Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday February 10, 2019.
