February 15, 2016, 5:00 PM might have found the most fervent music lovers among us with eyes fixed on the screens in anticipation to get to know the big names of the music world winners and to revel in gorgeous pop, rock, country and rap performances as well. The 58th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony reached its end held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California leaving some of the artists on cloud nine, while others utterly disappointed maybe. Taylor Swift received seven nominations including the Album of The Year (1989) and knocking out Kanye West with her imposing speech. The Weeknd also took seven nominations, while Kendrick Lamar was riding highest receiving the whole 11 nominations in a single night passing Eminem and staying one step behind Michael Jackson (12 nominations 1984). But the grandest musical ceremony is not only to quench our thirst for music chords but also our appetite for killing outfits and come-hither looks. We have selected the Grammys 2016 best dressed celebrities, who appeared on the red carpet in a grandiose way and made it another red-letter day in the history of fashion.
1. Taylor Swift
Drop-dead gorgeous Taylor Swift was undeniably the female ruler of the ceremony, who found it insufficient to receive the whole 7 nominations and to be labeled as the fist girl to get the Album of The Year for the second year in a row and she buckled down to spin heads by her allure as well, appearing in a custom-made two piece by Atelier Versace – a bright orange strapless crop top paired with a floor-length fuchsia skirt featuring a never-ending side-slit. Her choice for footwear was Stuart Weitzman heels.
2. Ellie Goulding
Ellie Goulding nominated in the category of Best pop solo performance with her Love Me Like You Do song did not take any golden Gramophone, instead propelling the fashion researchers to discuss her minimalistic yet so elegant powdery pink gown by Stella McCartney with spaghetti straps, the train touching the ground, while the back featuring a unique jewelry racerback design.
3. Selena Gomez
Sweet girl Selena Gomez was not only that best friend of Taylor Swift looking so excited to see her win, but also another music figure to electrify us by her night blue choice from Calvin Klein Collection – a mind-blowing gown sparkling in all directions with her so favorite plunging neckline and audacious cleavages at waistlines, while for matching earrings and ring she went for David Webb.
4. Bella Hadid
The stunning brunette Bella Hadid was not only at the ceremony to support her boyfriend The Weeknd but also to teach all and sundry what really means dark sexuality. Her Alexandre Vauthier gown with faint sparkles scattered here and there was a real festival of sensual cleavages, starting from the center slit and belly cutouts to that super deep plunging neckline.
5. Florence Welch
Florence Welch, the lead vocalist of the indie rock band Florence + the Machine, galvanized the red carpet with her Gucci gown from step to stern emanating Alessandro Michele’s romantic soul starting from tender powdery pink shade and ruffles at the hems to sequined sparkling moon and stars and romantic bows at the cuffs and around the waist.
Amazing Adele always cutting a wide swath with her remarkable performances and penetrating voice was not nominated in any category this year, plus suffered some technical problems on the stage. Maybe it was that dramatic mourning dress from Givenchy Haute Couture to lay blame on. Be that as it may, we are more than admiring that discreet dress with cleavages on the shoulders, with the floral embroidery and sparkles featuring the delicate handicraft a la Riccardo Tisci.
If there are any shocks, confusions or bombshells they happen during such ceremonies as is Grammy Awards and Beyonce, albeit not appearing in any nomination category this time, took that shock-confusion-bombshell award for sure donning an amazing bridal gown by Inbal Dror, while presenting Grammy for Record Of The Year. That pretty crocheted-sheer tulle contrast gown with top part going classic shirt style is to whet many brides’ appetite yet.
