Best and Worst Dressed at the Grammys 2014

Last week, the biggest night of music took place as the stars hit the red carpet in LA to strut their stuff and celebrate generations of talent. From the Beatles' Paul Mc Cartney, to new lady on the block Lorde, the night displayed an array of performances and gave nods to those chart-topping artists. Let's take a look at the best and worst dressed from the night. 

Best Dressed

Katy Perry

Katy Perry obviously couldn't decide between gowns at the Grammys because she ended up changing a total of three times. Her red carpet piece is by far the most elegant, an ivory floor length dress with layered sheer skirts which reveal musical notes underneath. Finishing her clean-cut look with a chunky plait bun she looked every inch the ethereal beauty. 

Paris Hilton
Miss Hilton was a shocker of the night, looking super sophisticated in a white, intricately embellished gown with sheer striped sleeves and a messy quiff. By far my favourite look of the night. 

Rita Ora
Showing her and boyfriend Calvin Harris were stronger than ever, Ora strutted own the red carpet in this fabulous metallic moss bodycon dress. Teaming it with classic curls and skinny stilettos, she shone as she cuddled up to her beau. 

Iggy Azalea 
When it comes to Iggy Azalea, her choice of chiffon dresses have often been unflattering in the past. Opting for a light, elegant dress with a high neck and floor length however, it seemed to compliment her greatly. The wonderful intricacy of the embellished top half of the dress is perfect for the subtle vertical stripes that run down the bottom half, an effect which is slimming too. 

Taylor Swift 
Yay for the metallics last week as Taylor Swift leads the trend in this chain mail-esque gown with sheer sleeves and neck line. I love her relaxed pony which means no attention is averted from the eye-catching detail of the gown. 


On first look, I had slight doubts about this gown as I am not too keen on the doily look. However a combination of Beyoncé's posing and hair and beauty accompaniments won me over here- white floral print could be coming back in thanks to this piece. Such a pity the star caved into the pressures of weight loss though- Knowles is a svelte 6 here. 

Worst Dressed

Thats what you get when your son dresses you. It's almost as if we have rewound to the Me Against The Music video days, I half expected Madge to stick that cane in between her legs again and writhe around on the floor. The pop legend looked awful in this manly suit and over-sized hat, it was way too harsh on her fair complexion.  I'm waiting for the day this lady actually dons something sophisticated- I have a feeling I will be waiting a while. 

Kelly Osbourne
THAT HAIR. Cut it, dye it, so something with it because it's awful. It often baffles me how Kelly Osbourne got herself on the panel of E!'s Fashion Police, as she is seldom in something appropriate. LBD's are fabulous but this one just swamps her. The embellished shoulders are gorgeous but the overall look is drab and her body seems to completely disappear. 

Ariana Grande
Question: Will Ariana Grande ever do anything different with her hair? I fear the answer is no. Scraping it back and curling it seems to be the only style for her at the moment, and this prissy floral dress did nothing for me. Teaming it with silky, sickly pink heels sealed her fate. 

I absolutely adore P!nk, but her dress left me stale. I am not a fan of strapless pieces anyway, but I thought the combination of silky and matte panelling looked undesirable. I do love her signature quiff though, keep rocking it P!nk. 

Guiliana Rancic
Can someone tell me why Rancic was even on the red carpet last weekend? Annoying E! host looked a vivid pukey colour at the Grammy's, displaying perfectly how NOT to wear a sheer piece. The white outline to the top of the dress is repulsive and even though Beyoncé got away with the doily look, Guilana did not. 

Pharrell Williams
Nooooo! I was so disappointed to see one of the biggest successes in music at the moment, looking like a complete arse. His hat resembles a Dr Seuss creation, and why is he wearing half a tracksuit? I despair. 

Paula Patton (and Robin Thicke)
The perve of pop took to the red carpet looking as creepy as he usually does, but it was his blasé wife who looked the most ghastly of the pair. Wearing what looked like a zebra rug, her textured gown made me as nauseous as I was when I first watched the Blurred Lines video.
