2012 Grammy’s Red Carpet fashion










The Grammy’s was last night and I must say… yawn-licious. I was underwhelmed at the show and the red carpet. I say it every year that it’s my last time watching and I hope I listen to myself next year. Missing on the red carpet -Pink, Christina Agularia, Beyonce, J.Lo- the BIG stars that really bring fashion.

My top best dressed? Rihanna and Amber Rose.

At first I didn’t like Rihanna’s dress but after mulling over the pictures, I changed my mind. While it was very simple, it was VERY sexy and her jewelry choices set it off.

Amber Rose face was beat! The yellow dress complimented her tone very nicely and it was a MAJOR upgrade from that awful green make-up and leopard print dress at the Clive Davis party on Saturday.


Fergie- meh! Nude undies instead?
Katy P- don’t hate it, don’t love it… it’s a pass
Kelly- meh. I saw her try on better choices on Access Hollywood
Melanie Fiona- Summer picnic anyone?

Who rocked out to you?
