Okay, this Anna Nicole Smith stuff is depressing, so let's take a little break, shall we? I asked iVillage's fashionista -- Melissa Kagan, who writes the Fashionator blog -- to give us a little pre-Grammy red-carpet preview of some of the ladies who could be in attendance on Sunday. And because she's fab like that, she did. Whatta gal! So check it out and definitely check out her daily column. It's a bookmarker!
So – the Grammy Awards are this Sunday, and while I’m not HUGE music fan, I do like to watch the red carpet fashions. For the most part – and this is a generalization – the nominees at the Grammy’s dress MUCH WORSE than the nominees for say, the Oscars. Maybe it’s because they are more “creative” – whatever it is they seem to have more fun getting dressed which makes it more fun for me to watch. Here’s who I can’t wait to see.
Mariah Carey – she is bound to look like a train wreck. I know I can count on her to wear something highly inappropriate, ill-fitting and cheesy. Keep up the good work Mariah – you are always good for a laugh.
Beyonce – With the exception of her Vegas act cha-cha look at the Globes (let’s chalk it up to temporary insanity) Beyonce usually looks fab. The girl has got curves and she isn’t afraid to flaunt them. I hope she wears something really bootylicious.
Madonna – I love Madonna – I really do. But she takes herself WAY too seriously which kind of makes me hope she wears something ridiculous – something that will warrant some MAJOR teasing – like the gladiator outfit she wore to last year’s Grammy Awards.
Christina Aguilera – It’s a given that X-tina will wear red lipstick but who knows what she’ll wear on her body. She usually wears slinky nightgowny looks so maybe she’ll switch things up a bit and wear a ball gown or something.
Mary J. Blige – Here’s the thing with Ms. Mary – she can be a bit outrageous – but it WORKS for her. She’s unapologetic and I respect her for it.
Who are you guys psyched to see?
