Grammy Fashion 2013

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards happened last night and all that means to me is that we get to “Ooh!” and “Ahh!” and “WTF?” over what everyone was wearing. There were guidelines this year for what attendees could and could not wear. I mean, really! Here are some highlights:

Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. [...] Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.

Hee hee, puffy! That’s some creative phrasing.

So let’s get to some standouts, for better or for worse.

Singer Carly Rae Jepsen may have finally redeemed herself in my eyes after that diabolical BCBG nightmare of an outfit she wore at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. (Rumor has it someone was fired over that outfit. I hope so.)

Pre-Grammy Fashion: A Gallery of Trashy Dresses!

I don’t know, maybe I’m just overly critical of red carpet fashion, or maybe it’s the pearl-clutching Southern girl in me, but there was a Pre-Grammy gala yesterday, and a lot of people just looked trashy.  It looks like someone sent out a memo to the ladies that the theme for the gala was “Dumb, Slutty, or Animal Print,” and everyone just went with it except Jennifer Hudson, because she’s too classy for that, Kathy Griffin, because she doesn’t give a fuck, and Jordin Sparks, because she’s not relevant enough to warrant a memo.  I’m right, right?

What Do You Think About The 2011 Grammy Nominees?

The 2011 Grammy nominations were announced last night and it’s my inclination to say that I’m disappointed by the nominees, but I dunno. It could be worse.

Here are some the nominees in some of the top categories (the full list is here):

Song Of The Year:
Ray Montagne- Beg Steal Or Borrow
Cee Lo Green- Forget You
Miranda Lambert- House That Built Me
Eminem Feat. Rihanna- Love The Way You Lie
Lady Antebellum- Need You Now

Best New Artist:
Justin Bieber
Florence & The Machine
Mumford & Suns
Esperanza Spalding

Album Of The Year:
Arcade Fire- Suburbs
Eminem- Recovery
Lady Antebellum- Need You Now
Lady GaGa- The Fame Monster
Katy Perry- Teenage Dream

I would give golden phonographs to Ray Montagne, Bieber (so he could fade into obscurity like most other Best New Artist winners) and mayyyybe Eminem, actually.

Surprisingly, the category that I thought was the best representation of the year’s best music was the Best Dance Recording category:

Best Dance Recording
Rocket – Goldfrapp
In For The Kill – La Roux
Dance in the Dark – Lady Gaga
Only Girl (In The World)- Rihanna
Dancing On My Own – Robyn

I’d want Robyn to take that one. Right? She’s so great.

Is there anyone that you’re surprised to see nominated and anyone that you’re sure will win?
