Lessons from the Grammy's

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.

What do you think?

I adore Jennifer Hudson, but it looked like she had a cloth napkin under her chin as if she were heading to a crab feed.

BTW what is Gwyneth doing at the Grammys? She should go back into her shame hole where she must stay for eternity since she stole Cate Blanchett's Oscar for "Elizabeth".
