Loads of sparkles and shine at the Grammys this year. A good number of our female celebrities were seen dazzling the red carpet in metallic golden, silver and extremely shimmery evening gowns. Taking the word ‘star’ in a somewhat literal sense, they did shine on! Here are some prominent appearances at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles, in this style :
Heidi Klum was looking every inch her glamorous self in the front slit golden gown by Julien MacDonalds. The dress featured a deep neckline as well as cut out sleeves. The long slit in the front was on purpose, however, to show the amazing and colorful Louboutin heels she had on, a fresh take on the heels typically worn with such outfits. She was minus accessories and sported a short bob hairdo.
Another celebrity looking glam in gold was Kim Kardashian. The shimmery gown was designed by Kaufman Franco. She did not hesitate putting equally striking accessories on with her dress. Big round hoops, noticeable snake bracelet and a big ring on her finger, all by Lorraine Schwartz. Perhaps her heels were the only respite being a neutral shade, worn to complement her height. Accentuated eyes and wavy dark hair were another highlight of her overall appearance this year.
Jennifer Lopez was upholding her tradition of wearing a short and catchy dress to the red carpet. Revealing her legs and curves, the flashy sequined dress was a creation of Emilio Pucci. Lopez carried off the look with a matching clutch bag and heels.
Leann Rimes’ silver dress was something worth a notice. The V-neck wrap dress oozed shine from its surface as well as its drapes. The short single-sleeve on the left was an element of interest added to the gown by its designer Reem Acra.
Miley Cyrus could not be missed in her tiger print silver and gold floor length dress. The young songstress didn’t disappoint her fans with her perfect ensemble. The beautiful antique bangles she had on both her hands and other accessories are by Lorraine Schwartz as well as Ofira. She paired this stunning Roberto Cavalli dress with black heels from Sergio Rossi and was beaming with confidence on the red carpet.
Miranda Lambert didn’t take many chances with her glittery gown, except for the unusual neckline and back details. Everything about this red carpet dress was formal and elegant. Her carefully chosen SR Nina Runsdorf jewels went well with the Georges Chakra dress. It was taken from the Edition collection by the designer for Spring 2011. Miranda went all the way to having metallic silver nail-paint on to make the look complete.
Selena Gomez’s choice of her evening wear was modest and sleek. The light metallic gown by J. Mendel was in contrast to Miley Cyrus’ loud Cavalli dress. She was also carrying a matching clutch by Judith Leiber and heels by Brian Atwood. The dark wavy tresses and pink lips gave the damsel a very defined look. Lorraine Schwartz was also her choice for jewels.
In a style of her own, Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snooki showed up in a puff sleeve short and shimmery metallic grey outfit. Her exaggerated accessories and clutch bag of the same shade made her distinct. The chunky earrings were the star attraction for her however.
