Grammys 2019: Pinks and Reds

Featuring a giant fashion clam and a dangerously unsecured boob fan…

Cardi B! I don’t even know where to begin! How about with her history making win as the first solo female rapper to take home the prize for best rap album. Or her delightfully giddy and sweet acceptance speech. Or her killer performance. But for me, it begins and ends with this enormous (literally and metaphorically) statement piece from Mugler’s 1995 collection. Apparently it hasn’t been worn since it debuted in the mid-90’s and with Lady Gaga sticking to her new, more traditional Oscar nominee wardrobe, I can’t think of anyone better to pull off an utterly delightful, completely bonkers look like this.

Kacey released one of my favorite albums of the year and I’m thrilled that Grammys agreed. I do wish she’d chosen a less dour and precariously positioned Valentino though.

Her second look was better and featured Valentino’s signature ruffles without the danger of a wardrobe malfunction.

I didn’t get a chance to watch the telecast, but I heard that Alicia was a charming host! She looks phenomenal here and I have enormous respect for her now years long commitment to eschewing makeup.

Katy wore the first of two Balmain’s from the night, and unlike the latter, I absolutely adore it. This cotton candy confection comes from the Spring 2019 Couture show and I love how it plays into Katy’s bubblegum pop aesthetic but with a grown-up, haute couture twist.

Aaaand…this is the second Balmain. It’s a glorified straight jacket.

Jameela is a complete delight and I think Tahani would approve of this look.

I love feathers and I love sparkles, but this is too feathered and too short and it’s not doing anything for me.

So, SO much tulle. And like feathers and sparkles, I also love tulle. But there’s a limit and Bebe found it.

I’m usually a big Armani fan, but this reads a tad tacky to me.
