The red carpet season has officially begun! Last night was the 56th annual Grammys music award show, held in Los Angeles, California. The performances were astounding with music legends, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Metallica and Beyonce all having their own performances/collaborations. One area where the award show was lacking star-power, however, was the red carpet. Singers, Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus did not walk the Grammys red carpet this year. Those four women usually create a barrage of headlines for their memorable fashion that pushes the envelope, but not this year. Our New York fashion photography team, even put Miley Cyrus and Beyonce on our list of biggest celebrity makeover of 2013 list and Le Image Inc was so excited to see how those two would style themselves for one of the biggest events of 2014.
Several top performers, notably Katy Perry, Madonna and Taylor Swift, still brought their all to the red carpet. Grammy-nominee, Taylor Swift, lead the sea of metallic dresses with a gold lamé gown by Gucci. The sparkly piece was well fitted and kept with Swift’s modest tastes in length and sex appeal. “Roar” singer, Katy Perry, wore a Valentino Couture runway dress that paired the delicate aesthetic of a ballerina’s tulle dress with a graphic pattern of music notes on the skirt of the gown. Madonna brought her 8-year-old son, David, to the music award show, where they walked the red carpet in matching Ralph Lauren tuxedos and black hats. While the look was darling on her son, Madonna piled on the accessories and included a walking stick and a gold mouth grill, making her seem more ridiculous that chic.
All in all, it was a great award show but a terrible red carpet. Our New York fashion photographers are hoping that the Oscar’s have a far better red carper turn out. The 86th Academy Awards, also in L.A., will be held on March 2nd. We can’t wait to see a better red carpet (hopefully)!
