We are in the home stretch. Tomorrow night are the 2019 Grammy Awards and today are my last two set of wishes for tomorrow nights red carpet. I want to see everyone really deliver major moments, but I won’t lie to you the pre-Grammy parties red carpets have me worried. They have been uber tacky and filled with cheap looking, poorly constructed looks. I am hoping that just means that everyone is saving their a-game for tomorrow nights red carpets. Andra Day will take the stage tomorrow night at the Grammy awards with Fantasia and Yolanda Adams to pay tribute to the late Aretha Franklin and I am very excited to see what she will bring to the red carpet ahead of that performance. Her past Grammy red carpet looks have all been rather simple in style, and so this year I want to see Andra bring the drama. I know thanks to the Zac Posen gown she wore for the Oscars last year that Andra can really deliver a lot of drama on the red carpet. So I went shopping on the latest couture runways to find the perfect gown for her to bring to life. The moment I saw this ice grey Georges Hobeika Spring 2019 Couture long sleeve ballgown which features intricate beaded embroidery, sheer sleeves, a plunging neckline, a thigh high side split, feather trim, and a dramatic train I knew it was the perfect gown for Andra to wear on this red carpet. It has all the boxes ticked of details that Andra loves and so I think that with an intricate updo (maybe with some magnolias or white roses in her hair,) thick winged eyes, red lips, a pair of silver Christian Louboutin ‘Fetish Peep’ platform peep toe pumps, and very chic Hueb ‘Apus’ diamond cluster earrings that this would be the perfect moment for her. Ciara isn’t confirmed to attend tomorrow nights ceremony, but typically all the stars who end up performing or presenting at the Grammy tribute (typically taped two or three days after the live telecast) also attend the awards themselves. Since Ciara is confirmed to perform or present at the taping of Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration I would imagine that she will also be on the Grammy’s red carpet. She usually is even if she doesn’t have a responsibility and if she delivers a really major moment on the red carpet every time she does she can go right on ahead. I am going back to a wish I touched upon briefly in my Spring 2019 Couture week wishes with this buttery yellow Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2019 Couture portrait neckline mini dress which features a bubble hem, a ruched draped bodice and waist, and dramatic puffy sleeves. I immediately knew I wanted to see Ciara wearing this dress the moment I saw it. I didn’t know where I was going to get the opportunity to use it so I made sure that I put the idea out into the universe in my 20 Looks I Love post. When I heard her announced for the Motown special I knew that I had to take this opportunity to put this wish out there again, but this time with styling. I would add a sleek high pony, smokey eyes, soft dusty rose pink lips, a pair of gold Casadei ‘Blade Venus’ stiletto sandals, and a statement Bulgari ‘Andy Warhol’ diamond and mother of pearl collar necklace to really make this the major moment I know it can be for Ciara.Shawn Mendes knows how to deliver a chic moment on the red carpet. He usually gives us more of a casual suit on the red carpet, but I want to see the twice nominated musician give us more of a formal moment on the red carpet ahead of his performance. I definitely think that Shawn could give me a little bit of Justin Timberlake vibes wearing this Tom Ford tuxedo which features a metallic slate blue shawl lapel single button dinner jacket in leopard jacquard, a crisp white tuxedo shirt, and black slim fit tuxedo pants. It is a super sexy menswear moment and I definitely think that Shawn could sell it to me. I don’t know if I want him to wear a tied bow tie though. I might want to see him pair this tuxedo with onyx Mont Bland tuxedo studs, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Roadie’ chelsea style boots, and a bow tie undone with the top button undone to give smouldering end of the night sexy from the moment he steps onto the red carpet. Diana Ross is getting a special award tomorrow night at the Grammy Awards, and performing, and I would bet you that we will see her extremely fashionable daughter Tracee Ellis Ross on the red carpet to support her. The two are incredibly close and whenever Diana attends you can usually expect Tracee not to be too far behind. While she isn’t presenting I would imagine that Tracee will still deliver an absolutely major fashion moment on the red carpet. I went searching in the latest couture collections and when I saw this white Ashi Studio Spring 2019 Couture collection ensemble which features a strapless flowing gown with intricate embroidery on the bodice paired with a dramatic white feathered opera coat I knew it would be a really major moment for Tracee to rock on this red carpet. She knows how to really sell a look on the red carpet and I know that that she would take this look to a whole other level. I think she would pair this gown with a full bouncy afro curls, smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of silver Christian Louboutin ‘Twistissima’ crystal embellished pointed toe strappy pumps, and statement diamond and emerald Butani wreath earrings to really ensure she delivers this moment on this red carpet.
The 2019 Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday February 10, 2019.
