Grammys 2018: Best and Worst Dressed

Last night it was the biggest night on the music industry calendar – the Grammys. So naturally, as with any red carpet event, it is time to look at the fashion!

Pics: Brits Fashion Hits and Misses

You know the drill. Last night was the Brits, the biggest night in British music awards. It was held at the O2 arena in London and the celebrities braved the freezing cold to battle the red carpet.

I wasn’t overwhelmed by the effort to be honest so out of what there is, I have picked my favourites and the horrible ones.

Enjoy!

HITS 

Taylor Swift 

YES2

I LOVE this. Taylor can do no wrong fashion-wise at the moment.

Emeli Sande

YES1

It is pretty simple but I think she looks great in it. I love the ruffles and the bow tie at the top.

Ashley Roberts

YES4

I would have preferred if the skirt wasn’t sheer because I think it looks weird that you can see her pants. However, Ashley looks sexy and pulls off the look.

Rita Ora

YES5

I don’t usually get Rita’s fashion sense but this dress is so elegant. I love the material and colour. I’m not too sure about the excess material at the lower back.

Rebecca Ferguson

YES3

Rebecca looks stunning here. I love the detailing on the top.

MISSES

Lana Del Rey

NO5

Did she forget what function she was going to?! This is far too casual and something you would wear on a normal day!

Alexa Chung

NO6

Ditto Alexa Chung- she must be freezing!

Paloma Faith

NO3

On the flipside, Paloma is a bit OTT! That is hardly surprising. The jewels and the doily-like fabric make for a cheap looking dress.

Katherine Jenkins

NO4

This is a bit bold and there’s a lot going on.The dress doesn’t hold any shape so she looks a bit like a blob- especially how it’s puffed out at the back.

Gemma Arterton

NO1

Who dressed Gemma, her grandma?! I am most shocked by this dress- it is awful! The cardigan and skirt combo, the sequins, the shoes, the fit. Simply WRONG. So disappointed.

Videos: Scream and Shout remix & Lana Del Rey

Scream and Shout remix



We have been teased about this remix for a long time but to be honest, the original is far better. There are too many people on this track now and the beat gets boring as everyone wants a go rapping. I can’t see me liking this but I am impressed that they’ve got Will.I.Am and Britney Spears (obviously) but now Waka Flocka, Diddy, Hit Boy and Lil Wayne. That is a massive collaboration but I don’t think it works. I hate the Adidas top Britney wears too.

Lana Del Rey 


This is Lana’s latest single, Burning Desire, from the re-release of Born to Die. I don’t like this- it is super boring and the video doesn’t help much either. I’m sure diehard Del Rey fans will love it.

 

Cher Lloyd


Much like Want You Back, Cher has remade her video for a US audience. This time, it is With Ur Love. This is fair enough because the UK video was a bit boring but it just seems like such an extra effort. However, this video is far more interesting and I love it. It tells the story of Cher being a witch capturing the souls of boys to make her own special boy. Great idea.

Big Pics: EMA fashion

To be honest, there wasn’t a great turn out of celebrities at the MTV European Music Award in Germany- the big celebrities were Heidi Klum, Rita Ora, Carly Rae Jepsen, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Kim Kardashian, No Doubt, Fun and The Jonas Brothers. That sums up most of the turn-out.

The big winners of the night were Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, who came away with three gongs each. Bieber wasn’t there because he is on his Believe tour in America. Rihanna was the most unsuccessful as she was nominated for six categories and won nothing. Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction came next with two each.

Here is a list of the best and worst dresses.

BEST OUTFITS 

Taylor Swift

Taylor looks stunning in this dress. I also loved her circus-themed costume for her on-stage performance.

Rita Ora 

Rita appears on both lists! Definite thumbs-up for her red carpet get-up. The detail at the top is so pretty!

Alicia Keys 

This simple but very nice and it hugs her figure well. I’m not sure about her uber short bob though.

Carly Rae Jepsen

I think this dress is gorgeous. It may not suit her skin tone particularly well but I’m still loving it.

WORST DRESSED

Heidi Klum

In typical host fashion, Heidi Klum had multiple costume changes and none of the outfits were particularly great. These two (check below aswell) are the worst- there is just so much boob on show. The way the one below holds her boob is just gross.

Kim Kardashian

What is this contraption?! It looks HORRIBLE! Seriously, it looks like her train is made of black tinsel. This is awful.

Rita Ora 

The red catsuit?! The red trainers!? Just no, no, no! So wrong.

Lana Del Rey 

I have put Lana here because she is so bland and boring. It is simple but dull. She also looks like she is fed up of being there. Also check her boyfriend, Barrie-James O’Neill!

So that’s all folks! But for the laughs I thought I would add the video of Heidi Klum doing Gangnam Style with Psy as part of the show.

Lana Del Rey: Binge Drinker at 14

Yep! You read that right! Lana Del Rey has admitted that she had drinking problems at the age of fourteen.

Speaking to GQ Magazine, Del Rey revealed, “I was a big drinker at the time. I would drink every day. I would drink alone. I thought the whole concept was so f**king cool. A great deal of what I wrote on Born To Die is about these wilderness years.

“My parents were worried, I was worried. I knew it was a problem when I liked it more than I liked doing anything else. I was like, ‘I’m f**ked. I am totally f**ked’.”

The Blue Jeans singer admitted that she was sent to boarding school by her parents in a bid to get sober- it’s like a kids version of rehab!  She finally recognised how destructive her behaviour was and she became a “different species of person.” Looking back on it now, Lana calls it “the worst thing that ever happened to me”.

Blimey! Drinking problems at 14?! That is messed up. Thank God she sorted it out before it consumed her adult life.

Lana Del Rey gets her kit off for GQ!

Blimey! I definitely didn’t expect this kind of photo shoot from GQ! Singer Lana Del Rey will appear nude on the cover of the magazine’s Men Of The Year awards special issue. Lana was given the Women of The Year accolade and she mentioned this shoot during her acceptance speech.

“We had a beautiful shoot in Monaco and I had a really interesting interview – for a change – and I was reminded of why I love to sing and why I wanted to become a writer.

“And also,” she continued, “Paul, the creative director, was very hands on with the shoot. In fact, if you see in the magazine – in the middle of the spread – you’ll see a hand hoisting up one of my boobs.”

The magazine is on sale now.

 

Big Pics: Miley, Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry

1. Miley debuted her new blonde hair on Twitter a couple of days ago with the line, “Now that I’m blonde I gotta give duck lips in every photo 💇❤”

2. Lana Del Rey has been announced as the face of H&M for their autumn campaign. These are the only shots to have been released so far.

3. Lady Gaga has unveiled the promotional poster for her first fragrance, Fame. The crazy lady is completely nude except for the little men crawling over her. It is an hilarious concept and it is great to see a different type of perfume advert than the usual. Can always rely on Gaga to break the mould!

4. Rihanna has decided to go on holiday to get some rest after the death of her grandmother recently. It is thought she has postponed a few work commitments so she can have a much-needed relaxation time. She holidaying in Sardinia and of course, she posts pictures to Twitter A LOT during her time there. Here are a few:

 

 

5. Check out Katy Perry at the roller disco!! She dressed up in 90s gear to celebrate her friend Johnny’s birthday. Also in attendance were Amber Heard, Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson. I’m so jealous of the stylist’s friendship group! He obviously had an amazing time with Katy and Katy was definitely enjoying herself!

Top News: Sylvester Stallone, Rebecca Ferguson and Gaga slumber party

1. Sylvester Stallone is said to be “grief-stricken” after his 36-year-old son was found dead today. His film maker son, Sage, is thought to have overdosed on drugs but an autopsy (which is said to be taking place in the next 48 hours) will reveal all. A housekeeper found him   in his LA house before calling 911. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sylvester was in San Diego at Comic Con when he received the news.

His spokesperson said in a statement, “Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son.

“His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha. He was a very talented and wonderful young man. His loss will be felt forever.”

The picture above is very old and taken when Sylvester was with his first wife Sasha. I couldn’t find a newer one!

I can’t believe this! Such a sudden loss. I feel so sorry for Stallone and his family. Hopefully, we will know more about it later this week. This isn’t the only heart-breaking father-son tale recently. Usher’s step-son was declared brain dead earlier in the week after a jet ski accident.

 

2. X Factor finalist Rebecca Ferguson has sacked her management after they gave her a punishing work schedule which lead her to collapse. After her collapse, they gave her a coke and sent her to her next pre-arranged interview.

She took to Twitter to slam the team in a series of fiery messages. Here are a couple:

“The same people that worked me so much I collapsed and had to say stop!!! I need to see my children you need to give me time off vile!!!!

“Was so exhausted I couldn’t physically walk on my own but was still told I had to work!!! ‪#vile (sic).”

She ended her tirade by saying, “‘Be nice to have a nice new responsible caring management team!! Who care for me and my childrens well being ‪#seeyouincourt!!! (sic).”

Rebecca has been on a tough schedule as she tries to launch her career in America.

 

3. A fun story of the week- reports are suggesting that Lady Gaga had a party in Chateau Marmont with Lindsay Lohan and Lana Del Rey. Isn’t that the best friendship group ever?! Apparently, they booked a private room and had a “slumber party”. I’m not sure if I believe this but I so want it to be true! It would be so cool!

On Wednesday, the girls started tweeting each other about their evening with in-jokes but they have now been deleted.

Gaga wrote, “‘@lindsaylohan when you ordered a cucumber and a knife to the bar last night i thought your were gonna perform a vasectomy #justaskinnyb****h”

To which Lindsay replied, “#skinnysnack1 @ladygaga hahaha”.

Oddest friendship ever but I love it!
