The #Grammys Dress CodeThe network encouraged celebrities to cover their butts, boobs and "genital region." That last part is very important because it prevents anyone at home from seeing any "puffy" bare skin. I’m a bit confused on what constitutes "puffy" bare skin near the genital region, but I’m pretty sure that there’s a cream for that. CBS also wanted to make sure no one forgot to cover the bums and boobies - apparently, thong-type costumes and bare sides and/or under curvature of the breasts is classified as "problematic" for TV. But in true rocker-style there were a few defiant celebrities that caused YES moments throughout the red carpet arrivals and we have our favorites right here… Check out these celebrity Grammy appearances compared before/after “Memo-gate” and tell us, if it’s a mere coincidence or outright dress code defiance… Jennifer Lopez' Grammy dress stepped out - in full Angelina Jolie style, with her full right leg flashing in glory in a black Anthony Vaccarello gown. She paired her #Grammys dress with a black and gold envelope clutch, and swept her hair back with a chic top knot.
Her look isn't as revealing as last year's Grammy bling look but it definitely breaches this year's dress code mandate by CBS... what did you think of J. Lo's look?
Last year Carrie Underwood wore Gomez-Gracia’s long-sleeve backless “Starlet” Grammy dress featuring intricately embroidered sequins on tulle. This year, Carrie went for a sophisticated look in a Roberto Cavalli gown and a 381-carat diamond necklace. What do you think of Carrie's #Grammys dress? (Did you see that Etch-A-Sketch dress shat she performed in? WOW!)
Last year, Rihanna donned a black silk custom Giorgio Armani Grammy dress gown. The dress featured a plunging neckline, complimented by a high slit, a dramatically open back and a mermaid silhouette cascading into an elegant train - (according to E! News) inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer's character in 'Scarface' - this gown definitely didn't leave much to the imagination. But last night, she wore a custom Azzedine Alaia dress, Neil Lanejewelry, and Manolo Blahnik shoes.
Taylor Swift is know for playing it "safe" on the red carpet and she certainly did that last year wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress, Prada shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. This year, we didn't expect her to come out on the red carpet with anything too risqué and she delivered wearing a J Mendel dress that had a little Grammy edge with silver straps. We're not at all surprised that Taylor's Grammy dress stayed within the Grammy dress code…although we appreciate her pushing the limits! What did you think about the red carpet looks from tonight's Grammy telecast? Were you surprised by any looks? Did you love them all? Do you think the #Grammys dress code affected any fashion statements this year? Share your thoughts in the comments below...
