Grammy's Red Carpet Favorites

Even if you don't watch the show, you MUST look out for the Red Carpet looks from the Grammy's. The overall looks from the Grammy's, in my opinion, always have a perfect blend of style, class, trend and glamour. And then of course, there are the artists who totally shock you or leaving you wondering "what was she thinking?" There are shows completely dedicated to judging and discussing these looks. And it's so much fun! 

I have chosen a mixture of some of my favorite looks, and believe me, there are SO MANY beautiful looks from the years past. I have chosen these more for there timeless appeal and complimentary style to each woman individually. Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna both make the list twice, no surprise! 

What to Love:

  • A dress with feminine flair...sexy but still flirty and fun
  • Healthy glowing skin
  • Sleek soft hair with her dramatic neckline 
  • Smokey eye with soft lips avoid a look that's too "sugary" with the color of her dress
  • Perfectly matched, understated accessories

What to Love:

  • Fiona Apple stayed true to her personal style 
  • The gold accessories with her blush dress are timeless yet interesting. She beautifully combined soft and feminine with edgy and artistic
  • Soft waves, perfectly imperfect...reminds me of Botticelli's Birth of Venus 
  • Delicate makeup with a subtle sense of grunge style

What to Love:

  • The color of this dress!! 
  • She looks somewhat like a cupcake but totally pulled it off. Deep down inside there is a desire to wear something over-the-top and still feel pretty in all of us, I think.
  • The metal accents on the dress enhance her body and create a balance to the dress
  • Understated and simple hair also create a balance to Rihanna's look
  • Eye makeup that makes her eyes stand out and is a pretty compliment to her dress

What to Love:

  • Asymmetrical dress showing her healthy and toned body yet still covering enough that it doesn't feel like a fashion emergency about to happen
  • Structured, heavy metal accessories balancing the soft flowing fit of her dress
  • Her topknot elongates her overall look and compliments her radiant and detailed makeup look
  • Her winged liner and bold lashes with the subtle peachy glow on her lips and cheeks

What to Love:

  • Yellow can be such a tough color for many women to successfully pull off...this is a complete hit!
  • The style of this dress also flatters Fergie's feminine figure beautifully and tastefully
  • Gold simple accessories add to the glowing, soft warmth of her overall look 
  • Voluminous and sexy curls 
  • Makeup that completes and does not compete with her look 

What to Love:

  • Every woman needs a beautiful red dress, this so elegantly enhances Rihanna's figure 
  • Simple accessories with bold red lips and nails, I love it!
  • Her hair and makeup are both classic, timeless and simply pretty 

For every Red Carpet event, there is a team of professionals behind each and every look. The looks that stand the test of time and truly stand out are those that have a complete look that works together head to toe. These looks work together for the woman, her style and her unique natural beauty. I hope this inspires you to play with your accessories, hair and makeup! As a professional makeup artist, these are some of the things I consider when working with my clients to create a look that also has the same effect.
