Grammy Awards Fashion round up

February 9th, 2015 3:42 pm


No awards ceremony is complete without a fashion round up, and The 57th Grammy Awards ceremony is no exception. The stars did not disappoint on Sunday evening, showing ample cleavage, leg and style (with a few exceptions.)

Here are some looks we spotted and simply loved.

Black is the new black

The red carpet at this ceremony went a shade of black, with few female attendees daring to wear any colour at all. Each item had its own little quirk and we loved the curves on display in each look.

Beyonce led the way in her custom dress by Proenza Schouler. The deep V neck line and long sleeves complement each other perfectly. She sure looks bootylicious in this dress.

Nicki Minaj dressed in Tom Ford. The dress showed ample cleavage and curves. It was like this dress was made for her.

Meghan Trainor was ‘all about that lace’ in a sheer, off-the-shoulder Galia Lahav gown. We love how this dress accentuates her figure and how she’s revealed yet concealed her shape in this sheer fabric.

Jessie J who regularly chooses casual and unusual attire, wowed in a demure black dress. Showing off plenty of skin in this completely sheer gown.

Gwen Stefani went for a jumpsuit with a twist wearing Atelier Versace. We love the unusual detailing at the front of it.

Straight off the catwalk

Kim Kardashian West, dressed in Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture. This dress instantly caught everyone’s attention, from the glistening material, the low v neck finish opening to the high v front slit, the embellished shoulders and pocket detailing.  We could go on forever. Wow factor as always from Kim.

Rihanna was dressed in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture. Some have disagreed and stated they in fact hate this look, but we think anything Rihanna wears she can pull off. This pink number is a winner in our eyes.

Katy Perry wore her look straight off the catwalk for Zuhair Murad Haute Couture. Glistening like a rock star, this look came straight off the back of her amazing Super Bowl half time show costumes from Jeremey Scott. Katy you’re a style firework.

Tux luxe

The men weren’t the only ones that rocked the tux this awards season with Anna Kendrick, in Band of Outsiders wowing the crowd in this low cut suit. Such a simple yet eye catching look. We’re envious here at the office.

Sia and her sidekick Maddie made a statement with their matching look and wigs reminiscent of the styles seen on Rick Owens’ runway.

Hoofing It

March 12th, 2012 11:54 am


The German shoe designer and artist, Iris Schieferstein, has created a somewhat controversial and apparently none-too-comfortable line of shoes made from taxedermised animal parts.

The shoe-creations include pistols combined with horses hooves, stuffed doves and snake heads. Unsurprisingly, Lady Gaga is a big fan.

What do you think of these pumps? To die for, or just dead?
