Here are a few fashion lessons from the ladies on the 2009 Grammy red carpet:
Lesson #1. Shine is not always your friend
Sheryl Crow's choice of this Toni Maticevski gown (and shoes!) was unfortunate.
I loved Gweneth's Versace look until I looked at the legs. Excuse me while I throw out all tights with shimmer. Her hair is fabulous, though.
Lesson #2: There is a right way and a wrong way to wear metallic accents:
LeeAnn's Philosophy di Alberta Ferreti dress was the perfect balance of color and texture. Paula's look by Basil Soda (umm...who?) was heartbreaking.
Lesson #3: Short and structural shapes are super!
Jennifer Hudson in RM by Roland Mouret and Estelle in Bernard Chandra totally channeled the futuristic vibe...which is both a wink to 60's fashion and fashion-forward for the Grammy red carpet.
Lesson #4: Don't take yourself too seriously, but don't downplay a "moment."
Jennifer Nettles in Rachel Roy and Sara Bareilles in Luisa Beccaria looked fresh and appropriate in these short looks.
