Grammys 2017: Best & Worst Dressed

carrie-crop

Last night it was the Grammys awards, which is one of my favourite red carpet events because celebs dress bolder. The dress code doesn’t seem to be as serious and formal as the Oscars for example and celebs tend to have more fun – and there were certainly some interesting choices!

BRIT Awards 2016: Live Blog

rihanna crop

Tonight is the BRITs! I don’t know why I sound so excited. I usually find the ceremony extremely dull. BUT there is a brilliant turn out this year from international stars and performances from Rihanna, Adele and Justin Bieber are coming up, so I’m hoping some juicy gossip/drama happens! Keep us all entertained. I doubt we will have anything major like Madonna‘s infamous stage fall last year, but one can only hope.

Grammys 2016: Best & Worst Dressed

yes1

Last night was all about the 2016 Grammy Awards but the show is so long and with so many categories that I personally find the red carpet far more exciting. You can usually depend on the Grammys for some divisive fashion choices but I generally liked everything this year – especially this gorgeous look from Taylor Swift. People have been bashing her new bob but I think she looks fantastic.

There were some crazy outfits from absolute nobodies, so they are not included. I have a ton of best dressed and just a few worst dressed which weren’t totally horrible, just a bit naff. The standard is high this year.

Here are my picks:

Why I won’t be buying Adele concert tickets

Today Adele, who is everywhere at the moment, announced her tour of U.K. and Europe and everyone seems to be going nuts about seeing her perform live. I am not one of them and I have some very valid reasons.

Oscar 2013: After-party pics

On Oscars night, it is all about the parties once the winners have been announced. There are the big three- the Governor’s Ball, the Vanity Fair party and the Elton John party.

Here are the party highlights across those three events:

 

Chris Brown

Surprisingly, Chris seemed to be hanging out with everyone and there are some surreal pictures of who he met up with.

Well, he’s the host of one of the biggest parties in town, so naturally he knows everyone there.

Adele has done amazingly well despite being away for over a year so no wonder she wanted to make the most of her night out.

Videos: Best Bits from the Oscars show

Jennifer Lawrence falls over


Unless you’ve been in a cave today, you will have heard that Jennifer fell over on the way to accept her award for Best Leading Actress. It is such a mortifying situation so she had to praised for how she handled it. She addressed it and then carried on as normal. It makes me like her even more. Poor girl- her dress rips at the SAGs and now this!

Seth MacFarlane opening monologue


Sadly, this video is only a recap of the monologue (for a full video of it, see here). There was some concerns that Seth’s dirty humour wouldn’t go down too well and the comments on his performance are definitely split. I personally enjoyed the musical numbers and the sketches but his stand-up comedy was awkward and the whole monologue was a bit too long. I do have a clip of Seth’s tongue-in-cheek song named “We Saw Your Boobs”.


Clip of Adele’s performance and speech 


Adele performed at the Oscars last night for the first time since the birth of her child. She also picked up the Oscar for Best Original Song, and here you can see her getting a bit emotional.

Les Misérables cast perform



Proving that they can all sing live- the entire cast of Les Mis performed One Day More on the stage as part of the celebration of musicals. It was amazing to see.

Oscars 2013: Behind-the-scenes pics

The four acting winners celebrate in the press room after the Oscars ceremony has finished. Goodness knows why, but Jennifer Lawrence took that opportunity to swear at the press! Bizarre, but I still love her.

And while it seems like Anne Hathaway and Jen are just getting on for press purposes- here is proof that they get along just fine backstage. I love how happy they are!

BTS2

 

Anne seems to get on with everybody. Here she is backstage with Kristen Stewart, presumably asking her why the heck she is on crutches. That’s what all wanted to know. Apparently, she cut up her foot on some glass and is having trouble walking but she is capable to posing for the cameras without it.

BTS

 

There are some other great pictures of celebrities getting along backstage- including George Clooney, Ben Affleck and Jack Nicholson. What a cool crew.

And Charlize Theron with Quentin Tarantino:

Adele’s face coming off stage explains how shocked she is at picking up an Original Song Oscar. She’s so cool.

BTS5

 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt also posted some pictures to Facebook. One: him joking around with Daniel Radcliffe while they rehearse their opening musical number. Two: Sally Field helping Joe with his bow tie. These images are priceless!

Pics: More Grammy behind-the-scenes!

There are so many pictures of celebrities hanging out and acting like friends while in the audience at the Grammys. Here are the pictures you didn’t see during the show.

The main person here is Adele as she seemed to talk to and pose with everybody! Quite the social butterfly. Check the pictures for her “A” tattoo on her neck- symbolising her son’s name, Angelo.

Having a chat with Beyoncé. I love how B has knelt down to talk to her. I wouldn’t say that they are friends but probably just networking and being friendly.  Adele had no end of encounters like these….

I love seeing what the celebrities get up to when the cameras are off them. I would love to know which friendships are real and not just for the cameras but I suppose, in showbiz, you want to be friendly with everyone because it is a small world and you don’t want to burn bridges. It’s simple networking, like you would in any other job.

Pics: What you didn’t during the Grammys 2013

There are tons of cool backstage and audience photos that I just had to share with you from last night’s Grammys ceremony at the Staples Centre in LA.

 

Katy Perry and her boobs

Ellen DeGeneres couldn’t resist having a gawp at Katy’s assets, even with her partner Portia De Rossi on her arm. Elton John seemed to have the same issue. We reckon John Mayer was very happy with her wardrobe choice.

grammys4

Chris Brown & Rihanna

grammys5

Chris and Ri happily displayed their rekindled relationship for all to see in the first row of the audience. The pair seemed blissfully unaware of the whispers of people still shocked at their romance. Chris’ assault on Rihanna occurred on their way to the 2009 Grammys, so they have come full circle.

grammys6

Rihanna also sparked rumours that she was engaged after wearing a simple diamond band on her ring finger during her performance of Stay. Who knows?!

I was also shocked to see Chris pose with Adele! Weird pairing huh?!

Kelly Clarkson

This picture is hilarious! Kelly becomes the star of Ellen and Portia’s picture by photo bombing!

Carey Mulligan

Carey shunned the red carpet but was inside the auditorium to support husband Marcus Mumford. This is her giving him a squeeze when Mumford and Sons wins the best album category for Babel.

Grammys 2013: Fashion Hits & Misses

So the Grammys were on in Hollywood last night- on the same date as the BAFTAs which was a genius idea. Anyway, the biggest award ceremony in music always presents some interesting fashion choices and let’s not forget about the strict wardrobe policy the broadcasters CBS imposed on celebrities (read about that here)- not that it was adhered to, ahem, Rihanna.

The show has a ridiculous amount of awards and quite a lot of the winners aren’t recogniseable over here so I’m going to summarise: the biggest winners were fun., Gotye, Jay-Z & Kanye

and country music singer Carrie Underwood. Adele got an award for Set Fire to the Rain and Mumford and Sons picked up best album for Babel. Go the Brits! Kelly Clarkson and Beyoncé also won one each. You can read the whole list here.

The most important thing (of course) is the red carpet fashion to here are my hits and misses.

 

HITS 

Beyoncé

YES1

I love it when celebrities change it up and wear something other than dresses. This outfit is perfect on B. Great choice.

Taylor Swift 

YES2

Taylor looks really pretty in this. While I do love it, I can’t help but think she’s worn something similar really recently.

Katy Perry

YES3

Those boobs, oh my! Katy makes the most of her assets but keeps it classy by keeping the rest simple. I love the detailing at the top and the colour. I wonder if CBS is pissed with the amount of boob on show.

Rihanna

YES4

If they weren’t pissed with Katy, they will be with Rihanna- you can see nipple! That is definitely breaking the rules! I think she looks great in it. I just wish she would have covered up her breasts. I know she’s pretty relaxed about nudity but c’mon, on this occassion you could have put them away!

Carrie Underwood

yes5

I’m not so fussy at the bottom part but the bodice is really cool. I love the pattern and the structure plus that necklace makes her look so elegant.

MISSES

Jennifer Lopez

no7

J.Lo is clearly trying to replicate the Angelina Jolie leg. Besides the slit and the awkward pose, this dress is very boring and almost a drape. It doesn’t flatter her at all.

Kelly Rowland

NO3

There are very too many see-through parts to this dress. If they were just on the bottom, or on the top, it would be okay but this is just too much. Her boobs are a bit much too.

Ashanti

NO2

There are parts I don’t like. I like the embroidery and the structured top half (besides the shoulder flaps). I think if the bottom wasn’t so sheer it would be okay. You can see her pants!

Adele

NO1

I appreciate that Adele is trying to break out of her black rut but this is horrible. She just looks like she’s wearing curtains!

Florence Welch 

NO5

I hardly ever like what Florence wears but geez, she looks like a reptile! What’s with the spikes?! So weird.
