I was expecting to be blown away by the hair, makeup, and fashion on the Grammy red carpet. But instead, I’m under-whelmed.
The Grammys is the awards show where celebs traditionally turn up the volume and go all out; but this year was especially disappointing. The only one who seemed to take any kind of risk was Fantasia – but as you can see (above left), that turned out to be a hot mess.
Here’s a recap:
*Beyonce debuted a skunk do. I like the style, but the color gots to go.
*Rihanna’s hair looked so blah. But, thankfully, she fierce-ified it for her performance with The Time.
*Carrie Underwood and Miley Cyrus went a little overboard with the hair extensions.
*Alicia Keys was sporting a Mohawk-type updo that really didn’t translate to photos.
*Fergie’s hair ringlets looked touchably soft, but her style was a little safe.
*Faith Hill looked classically beautiful, as usual.
*And Nelly Furtado is still under the misapprehension that she looks good as a blonde.
Fortunately, the unremarkable red carpet was redeemed by Beyonce and Tina Turner, who shared the stage for a duet of Proud Mary.
Tina is my idol. At 68, she’s still got the moves…and the legs. I was breathless for the entire performance.
