Grammy Jewelry: Glam, Gauche and Gaga

Diamond jewelry was the big hit on the Grammy Awards red carpet last night, with lots of pendant earrings, icy studs, cuffs and a few statement necklaces thrown in for good measure.

Gone are the colorful gems of the Globes and SAGs – which should come as no surprise since the music industry is more bling-obsessed than the thespian set. And while there were some stunning looks to applaud, there were a few fashion missteps from some of the red carpet’s most reliable stars.

Taylor Swift (despite her unimpressive duet with icon, Stevie Nicks) looked lovely in 12 carat diamond pendant earrings from Lorraine Schwartz. And Pink one-upped her teen competition with, oh, a mere $2.5 mil worth of ice from Neil Lane.

The statement necklace brigade was represented by Shawn Colvin. And simple diamond studs made Rihanna’s unfortunate gown choice a little less, um, poofy?

Speaking of poof, Jersey Shore’s Snookie showed up in basic hoops (sans the hair bump) and a Seaside-inspired mini that outclassed Britney Spears’ unfortunate frock choice with what appears to be fishnet overlay. Oh, sister.

The biggest disappointment for me was the night’s big winner, Beyonce, in these gaudy, oversized, yellow gold Lorraine Schwartz earrings and nude Stephane Rolland frock. Not a good color combo and a she crossed the glam line to gaudy. Agree?

And of course, Lady Gaga, in a category all her own – didn’t disappoint with her fashion statement or her performance. The show could only go downhill after her incredible opening number with Elton John and the red carpet suffered the same ‘gasp’ vacuum as well at the end of the day.

What do you guys think? Are you as gaga for Gaga as I am? Are you thumbs up with the Beyonce choice? Weigh in!

Lady Gaga Moonwalks the Grammys

Looks like Lady Gaga’s red carpet Grammy look took a cue from Giorgio Armani’s moon-inspired 2010 couture line this week in Paris – except for the small fact that Mr. Armani designed the frock especiialy for Gaga.

“I am honored to be wearing Armani this evening,” she said in a statement to Us. “The series of pieces Mr. Armani created for me are truly iconic; they represent not only beautiful fashion, but my spirit and essence as an artist. Mr. Armani is a fashion legend, and tonight would not have been the same without his touch, and his wonderful team.”

Jewelry, well, is all a part of the dress but I’m keeping my eyes glued to the screen for costume jewels to match her duet partner – Elton John – during the show. Stay tuned!
