Sunday's Grammys meant fashion at its best... and worst, and if yesterday I was telling you about how it seemed to me that celebs did their best to dress nicely... well, let's just say I had more time to reconsider things a bit today and I must take it back. Well, not all of it - as I'm sure you noticed, the big stars made full use of the chance to show off their figures and their high-end fashion choices - but after seeing more and more photos of Sunday's party, I think I might have spoken too soon when I stated that the overwhelming majority of the guests wore extremely nice outfits. So, if yesterday we were looking at some of the dresses rated "excellent" or at least "very good", today we'll be having a look at the "not to nice" and even "what was she thinking?" choices made by some of the ladies in attendance. So here goes.
First of all, I must say I love Cher to death and have been her fan ever since I first watched "Mask" when I was a kid. I admire her talent and her youthful spirit, but I think you already know that she's no fashion guru, and has often ranked at number one on many "worst dressed celebrities" past or present lists. So I guess it should come as no surprise that she chose to wear a dress that looks as if put together from bin liners, tape and something that
vaguely resembles fur with silver trimmings. A similarly plastic looking black dress was also the choice made by American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino - and you have to look at her and wonder what in the world happened to her hair? I mean, no living human being would willingly go out in public sporting such a 'do, right? Right?
I really can't figure out what the "inmate meets granny meets cockatoo" hair style is aiming at, but one thing is for sure - it's in a class of its own and no one can really say it's not easily noticeable.
But so help me, if attention was what she was after, she could have just donned a Mariah Carey-style form-fitting dress with her boobs spilling out and she would have achieved the same effect. Also in the running for "worst Grammy hair" is Keyshia Cole, who also sported a slightly improved version of the black bin liner dress. Nelly Furtado, on the other hand, get points taken for the hair and the dress. I don't know who told Nelly she looks good blonde, but they must really hate her a*s. She used to look much better as a brunette - it gave her a more exotic, classy air than the standard California blonde. But that's just me being all narrow again.
And finally, we have two more exotic beauties and their wonderful attires. I'm talking about the one and only Bai Ling, who (thankfully) didn't flash her nipples or her vagina but still managed to look like a character from a mad painter's surrealistic nightmare - and the lesser known of the Knowles girls, Beyonce's little sister Solange - who tried hard to look like an ostrich in a tutu and really managed to pull it off. This being said, you can have a look at the ladies in question and their not-so-fabulous outfits, and give me your thoughts - do they really deserve to be on the "No, No, No" list?
