Adele Sweeps The Grammys With 6 Gongs And The Best Frock!

Fashion statements at The Grammys

While the stars at this year’s BAFTA ceremony largely opted for a more subdued, refined take on glamour and fashion in monochrome and nude styles, across the pond at The Grammys, it was a very different story – bold colours were being splashed about fearlessly, flesh was being flashed, and the fine line between high fashion and just plain bizarre was almost nonexistent! The Grammys seem to attract a more glitzy fashion statement which can be spectacularly successful or which can be a poor choice and end up being a fashion disaster!

Fashion clangers at The Grammys!

In our opinion, there were quite a few clangers – such as Fergie’s bright orange Gaultier gown (We love that she loves her curves – but we’re not sure that a see through lacey/crochet affair with magic pants was the best way to show them off!) and Nicki Minaj in her little red riding hood meets The Pope style Versace ensemble (A little too obviously attention seeking & controversial for the sake of it, for our liking), but there were plenty of hits too.

Bold Fashion at The Grammys!

Katy Perry has divided opinion in the fashion round-ups, but we loved her sparkling Ellie Saab gown in bang on trend pastel blue. The matching hair may have been a step too far, but we think she pulled it off! Kelly Osboure also had dyed hair to blend with her outfit to create a fashion statement. Katy and Kelly both made a bold fashion statement and pretty much carried it off.

Kelly Rowland opted for pastels too and looked great in a beautifully detailed dusky pink column dress by Alberta Ferretti – we give her extra points for embracing her natural hair too – bin the extensions Kelly, it looked gorgeous!

Classic Fashion at The Grammys!

Gwyneth Paltrow & Rhianna dared to bare in classic strappy black gowns by Stella McCartney & Armani – and rather than have a fashion diva strop on seeing their frocks were pretty similar, Gwyneth tweeted a picture of them together - quite classy!

The Fashion winner at The Grammys and The Brit Awards!

Our favourite of the night though, was definitely Adele – not only did she sweep the boards by picking up no less than six awards, but she also looked beautiful in a stunning Giorgio Armani gown.  The classic black shape, a fashion statement in itself, embellished with a mesh overlay and sparkling sequins, looked fabulous.  Timeless elegance with just enough sparkle to mark the occasion. Perfect!

Adele glamorous fashion at The Grammys and the Brit Awards 2012

Adele wore the same dress when she sang at The Brit Awards last night plus a dress by Burberry when collecting one of her two Brit Awards. Despite her surgery she’s had outstanding couple of years and is not only a singing superstar but is also becoming a style ambassador for naturally curvy women. We don’t mean celebrity curvy women, we mean ordinary women, Adele’s body shape reflects that of many women today, not that of the rarified atmosphere of shallow celebrity.

We hope Adele stays true to herself and doesn’t distort her appearance to suit her new stellar status. Adele has a glorious opportunity to be a style ambassador for ordinary women, right now we get the impression she dresses well because she wants to look good for herself and she doesn’t have airs and graces and we hope she never loses that part of her personality.

The media should focus on Adele’s fabulous voice (a gift), her personality and style rather than focus on whether of not she has lost weight. That is her business and should be hers alone, journalists should be talented enough to focus on Adele’s gift. After all we listen to her because she sings beautifully, not because she has gone up or down a dress size.
