The Grammy Awards are our editors’ least favorite red carpet event of the year, usually because it seems each artist is just trying to outdo eachother (or Lady Gaga, in recent years.) This year was no different with Katy Perry matching her dress to her outrageous hair color; Fergie sporting one hideous see-through orange lace number; Nicki Minaj dressed up like a Catholic cardinal; and even though Russian singer Sasha Gradiva had fake machine guns attached to her sleeves, and songwriter Bonnie McKee had yellow fringe dragging on the floor, the worst-dressed award surprisingly goes to a Victoria’s Secret model. Maroon 5 front-man Adam Levine’s girlfriend, Anne V, almost showed a body part that shares the same initial as her surname… Seriously? Where is that piece of fabric attached? But there were a few classy ladies in the crowd who we’d like to name. While Paris Hilton (pictured, top left) is far from what we’d call a musician, the socialite did look quite grown-up in her gold-embellished Basil Soda silhouette. The “Woman of the Night,” also known as Adele (pictured, top right), wore a custom-made sparkling black Giorgio Armani gown, jewelry from De Beers and Harry Winston, with a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps. All those Grammy Awards went quite nicely with her glittering gown! Kate Beckinsale isn’t a musician either, but she was a presenter for the ceremony (they really choose a lot of random attendees), and looked gorgeous, as always, in a one-shouldered draped cream dress with a black bow by Zuhair Murad. Finally, former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland demonstrates exactly who should wear nude – girls with her lovely mocha complexion! She looked very refined in her Alberta Ferretti gown with silver floral embroidery. The Grammys are still our least favorite award show, but at least these girls knew how to bring their A-game!
