Grammys: Oh No, You Did Not Just Steal My Outfit!

Both Julianne Hough and Lea Michele looked stunning in Malandrino gowns. Lea Michele rocked the look at the 2010 SAG awards and Julianne Hough wore the gown to the 2011 Grammys. I wonder if Julianne's stylist just forgot Lea Michele wore the dress in turquoise to the 2010 SAG awards, or if they thought nobody would notice because the dress was a different pattern. 
Lea Michele
Julianne Hough

In my opinion, both ladies looked stunning. It is hard to choose a favorite, but by a nose I think Julianne is my favorite. I love the pink on her skin tone and her hair is absolutely gorgeous! Lea looked beautiful but I like Julianne's updo with the dress better that Lea's loose waves. But, of course Lea gets extra points for wearing the dress first! 

Grammys: Is This a Halloween Party or an Award Show?

We saw a lot of costume style outfits on the red carpet this year. Sometimes costume outfits can look chic and really cute! But this year it seemed that those aspects of costume were for the most part lost.
Most people thought Rhianna looked absolutely amazing. I love the shape of this dress by Jean Paul Gaultier, but the dress was way too revealing. Rhianna can pull off almost anything but not this. I wouldn't put this dress on the worst dress list, but it wouldn't be on my best dressed list either. I hope Rhianna keeps taking risks with her style, but taking risks doesn't mean dressing risqué. 
 Katy Perry
I usually adore Katy Perry's costume like clothing, but tonight was an exception. I felt this was not fancy enough for the Grammys. The bedazzled bra looked very awkward and didn't work very well. The wings were cute, but they didn't feel chic, they felt tacky. 
 Nicki Minaj
Nicki went a little too far with this outfit. I love the leopard trend, but head to toe (literally) leopard can get a little over whelming. I would have liked it more if there was some break in the leopard, possibly the legs or the arms. I thought her hair was really cool, but with the overpowering outfit it was way over the top! 
Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is always wearing crazy outfits. So it was no surprise when she arrived in a full out crazy way. Honestly, I wasn't impressed by her entrance. I love when Lady Gaga uses every day things and makes them into crazy outfits. But, since she was in the egg we couldn't see her. I thought the egg was a great statement for her new single "Born This Way" but it wasn't a fashion statement. During her performance she emerged in a plastic looking two piece outfit. This outfit just freaked me out a little. I know she was trying to look different and kind of alien like, but it was scary. I just found myself staring at her elbows and wondering what they did to make them that way. I loved the message of her outfits, but wasn't a fan of the actual fashion aspect of them.

Grammys: Worst Dressed AKA What Were They Thinking?

The Grammys is a night for celebrities to where designer clothes and look totally glamerous. Oh wait, that is every night for celebrities...But wearing a fantastic designer, doesn't always mean your outfit will be a show stopper. These celebrities, though i usually adore their outfits, didn't exactly achieve the goal of getting on the best dressed list, but instead ended up on the worst dressed.
 Amber Riley
I absolutely adored her dress to the SAG awards and love her outfits on Glee, but this dress (Ema Savahl)l...not so much. I think the painted on( yes that says painted on) detailing is too much and very overpowering. The detailing is also very abnormal and doesn't compliment her. The necklace cuts off her neck and make it look like she has none! I am also not a fan of her hair, just because the curls are weirdly shaped and make her head look very square. I thought her makeup was very classy though and i liked the simple black pumps. 
Miley Cyrus
Miley oh Miley...what have you done. I thought this outfit was a bit of a disaster. She tryed to fit too much into one outfit which doesn't work here. The accesories are too much with the heavily patterned dress (made by Roberto Cavalli). There was also a bit of a wardrobe malfunction going on when she was talking to Ryan Seacrest. I think that if the dress was taken in a little, she wore way less bracelets, and took out her extensions then she would have a good outfit. 

Kim Kardashian
Usually Kim can pull off the overly sexy sparkly look, but tonight I was not loving (though I have to admit, I usually am not). This dress (Kaufman Franco) did not compliment her figure and made her look a little "hoochy". The silhouette is far to revealing and the bright gold sparkles are very overwhelming. I thought her hair and makeup looked amazing, but her dress was just too much...errr too little. 

In the next part of my Grammy analysis I will be talking about the people who seemed to be arriving for a costume party and not an award show. Surprisingly, there was a heck of a lot of people who seemed to think that Grammys is a synonym for Halloween. Stay tuned and stay ForeverStyleStruck!

Grammys: Best Dressed

There was a lot of beautifully dressed ladies and lads at the Grammys. There were also some...not so beautifully dressed ladies and lads. For this post I am going to be focusing on the best dressed ladies of the night. I am not going to lie, men's fashion doesn't really intrigue me like women's fashion, so for the most part this blog will be focused on women's fashion. In upcoming posts I will be focusing on the worst dressed, the copycats, and the people who got the Grammy's confused with Halloween.

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer looked amazing in her sparkly pucci dress. The dressed fit like a glove and was definitely a highlight of the night. You would think a sparkly dress, shoes, and clutch would be a little much, but the different textures tone it down and make it very wearable. The only change i would make to this dress would be to make it just a little longer. Though Jennifer has amazing legs, the dress is a little revealing. 
Jennifer Hudson
The Jennifers are just pulling out all the stops for the Grammys! When I saw this I fell immediately in love.  The silhouette is amazing on this Versace dress. I love how it flows down in layers. The navy blue color really compliments her skin tone and looks absolutely stunning. Oh and her hair? absolutely amazing. The extensions look great on her!!

Selena Gomez
Can you believe she is only 17? Selena looks very elegant and graceful in her beautiful J Mendel dress. The dress is very simple and makes her look very mature, but it is also very age appropriate. Her hair looked effortless and her makeup looked very natural (a very good thing in my book!). My favorite part of her look? Her beyond gorgeous shoes by Brian Atwood. Can I snag those and wear them every day for the rest of my life?  
Katy Perry's Grammy!
By far the best dressed at the Grammys was....the Grammy! Katy Perry brought her grandma to the Grammy's for her 90th birthday and I personally thought she looked adorable in Armani. The contrasting grays looked very chic and really complimented her hair. My favorite part of this fashionista grandma's outfit was definitely her blinged out cane! The cane was the perfect finishing touch to her outfit and perfectly matched Katy's bra (yikes!). 

Some of you might be surprised not to see Rhianna on my best dressed list. But, unlike the majority of people, I was not a fan of her outfit. I will have more on her dress in an upcoming post! Stay tuned and stay ForeverStyleStruck!

Currently Obsessed: Alexander Wang Coco Duffel

This bag is the definition of foreverstylestruck. I have been so obsessed with this bag ever since I scrolled past it on my tumblr. It is truly the essence of a perfect bag. It is edgy, simplistic, and oh so chic. I could go on obsessing over this piece for ages. Alexander Wang is truly a genius. I'm not the only one who thinks this too. Tons of celebs have been sporting the duffel lately. 
 Kristin Cavallari
 Mary-Kate Olsen
Ashley Tisdale

If you watch Project Runway then you know who Mondo is. He is the short and spunky man who designs beautiful clothing with crazy patterns and colors. He is also the designer that in my opinion should have won Project Runway. His clothes are fun, colorful, and wearable (well...maybe not all together). They are in one word....inventive.


Everyone got decked out for the SAGAwards. Whether it was a hit or miss, they went all out.

All the Glee Woman looked amazing! But I thought two of them looked especially elegant.
Lea Michele

Heather Morris

The Girls of 30 Rock also looked beautiful in red.
Tina Fey
I thought the red looked amazing against her pale skin and her low side bun is very chic. 
Katrina Bowden
I absolutely adore the clip on the dress. The neckline is also very sliming on her.

Let's not forget Sarah Hyland from one of my favorite shows Modern Family! 
Sarah Hyland
The Blood Orange trend in action! I also love her hair! So beautiful!

Now for my personal favorite look of the night...
Mila Kunis
The flowiness of the dress is stunning and perfect for the red carpet! I also the watercolor pattern of the dress. The black in the dress looks amazing with her hair color. This look is amazing all around!
