The 2015 Grammys Awards Show was an exciting event last night, with many shocks and surprises. Of course, the Vintage Fashionistas’ favorite part was the red carpet glam of Grammys style. Here are some of our favorite and most talked about looks from the red carpet:
The Best of 2015’s Grammys Style…
Beyonce always stuns on the red carpet, but we were initially surprised by her choice this year. For this year’s Grammys, she opted for a Proenze Schouler gown. The dress seemed like the standard all black attire of the red carpet, but at a closer glance, the beading and embroidery of the semi-sheer dress were captivating. Her beachy waves almost hid a pair of emerald chandelier earrings that added even more glam to her fierce look.
To get a similar look, check out Back In Style’s vintage pick: A Vintage 1980’s Pantagis Black Jersey Dress. The sequined waist is reminiscent of Beyonce’s Grammys look, as well as the silhouette, cinching at the waist for the coveted hourglass figure silhouette and including a similar plunging neckline for the daring fashionista. The jersey material makes this vintage 1980s cocktail dress a comfortable option for your next formal occasion, without sacrificing Beyonce’s signature chic red carpet glam.
Taylor Swift wore Ellie Saab to this year’s Grammy Awards show. We love the playful coloring of the dress. The blues and teals are a fun and sophisticated option in a sea of black dresses. The silhouette of the dress was unique but suited to Swift, who loves a leggy but classy look. The balance of a reserved neckline with the surprise hem make it a classy but sassy look. We love the extra pop of color of her fuchsia shoes. Swift is becoming a fashion icon to look out for, especially for young, vintage lovers.
Chrissy Teigen wore Pucci to this years award show. Her Grammys style took a subtle silhouette and added a fun flair with the cutouts of the gown. The loosely stitched cut-outs made this Pucci dress the perfect amount of wild for the Grammys, which is known for its quirky red carpet looks. Her beachy, natural waves were the perfect complement to the dress, showing that red carpet glam doesn’t always need to be overdone to be stylish.
…And the Worst
Madonna never fails to surprise us with her red carpet style. She chose to wear Givenchy Haute Couture, to channel her “Living for Love” music video. But while this material girl shocked the red carpet, it wasn’t the most flattering option. While we admire Madonna’s ability to wear such an ensemble at 56, we don’t think the dominatrix/matador look was the best choice for the red carpet and should be reserved just for her stage act.
While we applaud Kim Kardashian for always trying to be chic, this Jean Paul Gaultier felt more like a robe than a Grammys gown. The gold and beading of the dress, while impressive, seemed a bit excessive. While the artists are competing for a Grammy award, she should not be trying to compete with the physical gold award itself.
