A #Grammys dress code for everyone appearing onstage during the Grammys telecast? Yes, it’s true! In preparation of last night’s ceremony, CBS sent out a memo to all talent appearing on camera politely reminding them about the network’s wardrobe policy.
The #Grammys Dress Code
The 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!

Despite the Nor’easter blizzard brewing in NYC, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was blazing hot Wednesday night inside the Lexington Armory. Veteran model Adriana Lima opened the show wearing a ringmaster outfit. Who could believe the 31-year-old model just gave birth to her second daughter barely two months ago? From child birth to runway in a matter of weeks!
Her thoughts on motherhood? “The best job in the world for me is being a mom,’ she said. ‘I never thought I could love so much. I always thought, does unconditional love exist? Now I know it does because I feel it.” That explains the post-maternity glow she carries with her on the runway.
Several actresses that have tried to pull this off, but were no where near this fit. This definitely goes down in the record books for the quickest maternity turn-around in entertainment history. Her secret? The V.S. Angel shared some of her post pregnancy diet and workout regimes on Twitter the day of the show. Her secrets include rigorous workouts and boxing sessions with trainer Michael Olajide, Jr.
Other model mothers were on the runway last night included Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and Lily Aldridge.
It’s hard to believe these women have had any kids. If this isn’t motivation! Anything is possible with hard work and dedication. Fellow Angel Doutzen Kroes also revealed some of the diet secrets of the lingerie-clad models when she posted an image to her Twitter account of the ingredients in her morning shake, which includes chocolate powder, acai powder, organic shredded coconut, flaxseed, hunza mulberries, raw chia seeds and Goji berries. I applaud these ladies. Modeling isn’t as easy as it looks, and the behind the scenes work is much more intense than what is seen on screen.

Missed out on the VMA’s because you were enjoying Fashion’s Night Out festivities or attending a DNC viewing party? Here’s your snapshot of all the details, fashions highs/lows and more for you below…
Rihanna opened up the VMAs coming out of a serpent’s mouth, amazing performance of her songs “Cockiness Remix ft. ASAP Rocky” (ASAP Rocky exiting mid performance hugging & squeezing Rihanna’s butt) and “We found Love”. Kevin Hart escorted to the VMA stage with secret service midgets to presidential music which later switches over to Young Jeezy’s “My president’s is black” song. Katy Perry presented the first award of the night- “Best Pop video”- Winner: One direction “Beautiful”. Demi Lovato & Rita Ora presented- “Best Male Video”- Winner: Chris Brown, “Turn up the Music”. Zoe Saldana presented singer Frank Ocean, he performed his song “Thinking About You”- the performance was perfect. (Frank Ocean stole the show), Very deep, emotional and passionate performance. Rashida Jones & Andy Sandberg presented- “Best Hip Hop Video”- Winner: Drake ft Lil Wayne, “HYFR”. Wanted & Rebel Wilson presents” Best Female Video”- Winner : Nicki Minaj “Starships”. Ke$ha & Wiz Khalifa presents “Best New Artist ”- Winner: One Direction. Alicia Keys ft. Nicki Minaj performs her song “ Girl on Fire Remix” with Gabby Douglas showing her skills with some back flips. Kevin Hart presents the “Video of the year”- Winner: Rihanna “We found Love”. Final Performance: Taylor Swift performs “We are never getting back together”; Taylor Swifts closes out the VMAs.
We can’t decide which bodysuit was the biggest disaster – Nicki Minaj in this sheer/red number or Rita Ora’s deep sheer v-neck suit. They’re both equally dreadful in our opinion.

Rihanna truly seems to be on the vacation that never ends. Recently Rih’s Grandma Dolly, passed away and the two seemed to be very close. Shortly after, Rih took a cruise vacation perhaps to clear her mind and have some time with friends. While on vaycay she has been to St. Tropez, Capri, Cannes, Eze Sur Mer, and the list goes on and on! Her party yacht has enjoyed fun moments with paparazzi, fans, and even Magic Johnson came aboard to have some fun. While in Cannes, Chris Brown arrived and was also photographed with Magic, which stirred up relationship rumors for Rih and Chris. While the rumors were shot down by Chris’ camp, it didn’t stop the party girl’s fun, and she continued to have a great time.
We all know Rihanna is a trend-setter, and she’s been wearing some fabulous ensembles while on her trip. She shows so much versatility between her outfits, and we noticed a bright color trend, which is fitting for the summer. Rih also must have packed a full accessory bag, because she had the perfect accessory to match each one of her outfits. We’re happy to see her smiling, girls just want to have fun! See some of her vacation looks pictured below:
