Ryzenberg On: Music’s Fashionable Gals

This year’s Grammy Awards had a few restrictions, (yup, a memo went out) but this certainly wasn’t a detriment for good style showing.

There was a rainbow of colors and many of the season’s trends were present. Of course, cleavage and slits were in abundance!

Here are my top five picks:

Kelly Rowland in Georges Chakra: When it comes to fashion, this one/third of Destiny’s Child hits all the right notes. She is sporting one of Spring’s major trends, the cutouts and she simply looks slamming! If I say so myself, she may have had one of her best weeks ever.

Taylor Swift in J. Mendel: Bravo T. Swift, you look modern and like a gal of your own age. I wasn’t a huge fan of her Golden Globe look, despite accolades from all fashionistas, but this Grecian inspired gown along with a bit of bare skin and a slit is classy, young and fabulous.

Florence Welch in Givenchy Couture: This songstress often wears Givenchy couture and I must say the color of her dress, her matching clutch and hair color scream chicness. I know it is not the most mainstream look, but I love the dramatics of it!

Rihanna in Azzedine Alaia: Very few times does RiRi do wrong in my book of sartorials (except when she wears those outright trashy ensembles, but still I give her nods for creativity). But when it comes to the red carpet, she dazzles! Who can forget her Michelle Pfeiffer homage during last year’s Grammys? This little number has a je ne sais quoi sexy feel that I am sure sure Chris Brown applauded.

Carly Rae Jepsen in Roberto Cavalli: The northern import is cute as a button and if I had her number, I’d absolutely call her so that we can go shopping together. I also love what it has now become her signature bangs and the minimal baubles she sported.

Solange Knowles in Ralph & Russo & Christian Louboutin: This girl gets it. Period. Beyonce’s little sis has an incredible sense of style that screams individualism and confidence. Hands down my favorite look of the night, so much for its glitz, glamour and juxtapositions. The minimal makeup and fro, the bright pink bright Loubis and and slimming gown are a winning combination that’s simply sexy! Ladies and gents, this is how multiple trends are done in one look! My best dressed pick…

What was yours? Honorable mention goes to my gal J.Lo, but I felt she tried too hard.

Ryzenberg On: Grammys’ Sweet Fashions

Jessie J in Julien Macdonald - The popstar chose a gown with a wow factor and plenty of mirror appliques. Perfect for the Grammys as the look is playful, yet elegant. 

Carrie Underwood in Gomez-Gracia - The country cutie shined in a backless gown from all sides. She also paired the dress with dangly earrings and a Rene Caovilla black clutch.

Rihanna in Armani - Hands down the sexiest gown of the night. RiRi collaborated with Mr. Armani for this look, which channeled a 1970s vibe reminiscent of the days at Studio 54. The dress had a striking deep V-neck and a very bold slit. 

Nicki Minaj in Versace - She sure made an entrance…but not for the right reasons. The performer wore an Atelier Verace cape and was escorted by a bishop. This sure was attention grabbing, but by no means was it classy as it turned out to be tacky and very much like a costume.

Lily Aldridge in Gucci - The pregnant model was glowing this Gucci maxidress as she supported her husband, Kings of Leon, Caleb Followill. She completed the look with black pumps and hoop earrings.

Adele in Armani - The night’s big winner flaunted her curves in an Armani gown and baubles from De Beers and Harry Winston. She was also sporting Louboutin heels, and her hair and makeup are stunning. This is how a star should always look like.

Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier - Fresh of the haute couture runway, Fergalicious is certainly on the Tangerine Tango trend. I like the dress, but not sure the see-through underwear works. She accessorized with Neil Lane jewels. 

Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad - The actress chose a little cream number cinched at the shoulder with a black bow and Salvatore Ferragamo pumps. She definitely flaunted her one of her best assets, her legs, and looked sexy while on the red carpet.
