2015 Grammy Awards: The Fashion and Beyond
The 2015 Grammy Awards was last night and it was one for the record books. The Grammys, which is the biggest award show in music had the Staples Center buzzing with the brightest musical stars. There was a time you could always count on the Grammys for some bold, jaw-dropping red carpet looks, but the 2015 Grammys was more grown up and classy with cleavage making the biggest statement. Lady Gaga surprised in an elegant plunging neckline Brandon Maxwell gown, Taylor Swift looked gorge in Elie Saab, Beyonce flawless in a low-cut neckline Proenza Schouler gown, and Ariana Grande beautifully dressed in Versace.
Red carpet beauty looks followed the theme and made a statement with the less-is-more makeup trend. The stars finished their clean glowing complexions with somewhat smokey eyes which at times found itself on the softer side, paired with nude lips or a swipe of lip color.
Beyond The Fashion
While the fashion delivered in a more sophisticated way, it is the music that really stood out. I have to hand it to the 2015 Grammy Awards committee, as they did an outstanding job of highlighting great musical artistry. They really put some thought into last night. Not only did they get it right with the winners, but they also got it right with the performances. Performances that showcased true talent, across varying genres and generations. Now that’s what the Grammys is all about!
Congratulations to Grammy newcomer Sam Smith for winning big with 4 Grammys and proving to us that being fearless and bold is about being authentic in who you are. I give it to Beyonce for that striking rendition of the gospel standard “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” to introduce John Legend and Common’s performance. I certainly did not see that one coming! If you did not watch Selma, now you know why John Legend and Common’s “Glory” from the film got a Golden Globe win. The song will also be performed at the upcoming Academy Awards later this month.
