Worst dressed celebrities at the Grammy!



The Grammy Awards took place at the Staples Center on Sunday in Los Angeles. Well, to be honest, I have never been a fan of all the fake award speeches or the air kissing! My sole purpose of watching any award show is to watch who came out in the open looking like a mess. Whether it was Nicki Minaj’s absurd catholic Versace Cape in 2012 or Lady Gaga in an egg shell, these celebrities need to look into the mirror before walking out!


Paula Patton: It seems as if Paula Patton has recently been caught by the plunging neckline bug. Spotted in a plunging neckline a night before at the pre-grammy party, Paula opted for the same at the Red Carpet too. All I can think of looking at this dress was whether the zebra and a skunk had a child?

Fantasia Barrino- American Idol 2004 winner was nominated for three awards last night. It was a printed affair when she opted for a black lace gown with different prints here and there. 

Cara Quici- The backless gown with a waist cut out and the thigh high slits! Since when did too much exposure become stylish?



Skylar Grey- She wore a nude gown by Michael Costello. Yes, Beyonce wore a Michael Costello too but she wore it elegantly. Her head to toe nude fish tail hem gown with tiny holes made the dress look nothing less than a band aid. Also, the belly and back cut out did not make her dress distinctive because you could not tell the difference between skin color and dress color.

Chrisette Michele – The overpowering paisley print and the over exposed bra did not favor Chrisette. In fact, try looking at her for two minutes and your head starts to pain.

Kaya Jones – Former Pussycat dolls singer opted for a latex gown with see through sheer panels. “I feel naked” she admitted. Later she yelled “I hope nobody saw my crotch!”

Faith Evans- I cannot understand what is really wrong with her dress. Is it the mid slit, the trail or the cracked nail polish like print?

Miguel- Those leather slacks are too distracting to the eye!

 

Cee lo – You know what I sang when I looked at Cee lo’s ‘CeeThrough’ white bed sheet like gown? The dirty version of ‘Forget You’. I still can’t get over his burlesque outfit from the 2011 Grammy’s and he strikes again!

Sara Bareilles- Her voice is beautiful, but not her dress. She wore a white strapless asymmetrical dress by Blumarine Spring 2014. Somehow, the dress looked much better on the runway than on the red carpet. The only thing I liked about her was her Katniss inspired braided hair.

Tasha Cobbs: The singer from Atlants won her first Grammy Award but not our vote for best dressed. She wore a blue satin half peplum gown which looked ill fitted.

Paris Haute Couture Spring/Summer FW'2014 Favorites Part II

Tranquil Valentino: Valention's Haute Couture collection charmed women of all ages. From a teenager to a grandmother, Valention's collection had something for everyone. The collection was inspired by the good ol' Opera to describe the character of prominent protagonists. Valentino made use of silk, cashmere, lace and crepe fabric for tutu skirts and tulle gown's. 
"This dreamy dress was made of 5000 meters of silver and gold threads and 1800 hours of craftsmanship" tweeted Valentino.
 












Jean Paul Gaultier: Jean Paul Gaultier's collection portrayed a theatrical extravaganza. "She's a butterfly in the day and a showgirl at night" said the press release. Colorful smokey eye's, tight hair buns, pleated silk drapes and oversize headpiece's ruled the show. It seemed as if the models were woven into those gorgeous butterfly outfits. The clothes were accessorized and enhanced as the models transformed from a butterfly to a showgirl. Jean Paul Gaultier infused his butterfly inspiration into sleek jackets, denim vests, fishtail skirt and silk gowns. Also, Dita Von Teese graced the ramp as a butterfly showgirl in a butterfly outfit paired with stockings.







Elie Saab: Don't we all wish to wear an Elie Saab at our wedding or as a bridesmaid? Well, I do. The lebanese designer stuck to the traditional crafting approach rather than going the quirky way. He was inspired by popular Dutch painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadem's painting of the Roman emperor Heliogabalus who tried to strangle his audience with rose petals. The color palette mainly comprised of soft pastel hues of nudes, pale blue's, yellow, coral and pink. In simple words, Elie Saab wove a dreamy fairy tale through his light and floral outfits.

Paris Haute Couture Spring/Summer FW'2014 Favorites:

For those of you who didn't know, Paris Fashion Week is one of the top 4 International Fashion Weeks. Currently headquartering brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Dior, Paris has been termed as the Fashion Capital of the World.
Apart from love, vintage wine and the Eiffel, haute couture is one of my Parisian favorites. This year the fashion week is being held at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, France.

Here are The Style Compile's Favorites from Paris Haute Couture FW'2014:

Cut out Delight at Christian Dior:
 Christian Dior's couture collection comprised of sheer and silk fabric with asymmetrical hemlines and intricate cut-out's. Very feminine with futuristic details, the color palette was mainly monochrome. P.S. We loved the J-shaped heel and metallic shoes.











Ferocious Versace Atelier:
Fierce, powerful and glamorous. These were the words that came to my mind after seeing Donatella Versace's Spring collection. The three words completely defined the brand ambassador of Versace - Lady Gaga. Sensually draped swarovski studded silk, hoods, thigh high slit gowns, mesh, fur and liquid metal like skirt, Versace left the audience awestruck. For me, it was very tough to pick out my favorite's since I seemed to lust after all of them.








Armani Privé:
Have a business meeting to attend? Well, this collection is your dose of formal glamour. Italian designer Giorgio Armani's haute couture collection consisted of sleek tailored jackets, peplum's, flared trousers, motif studded necklines and jeweled gowns paired with pleated and shiny headscarves.












Alexandre Vauthier:
Creativity was at it's best at the Alexandre Vauthier show with short ruffled waist clinching dresses, experimental fabrics, python collars, ankle cuffs and braided leather corsets. Salute to his imagination and creativity!






Comfortable Chanel:
Karl Lagerfeld's collection embraced the theme of lightness of being with a blend of sporty and feminine. Crop jackets, mid riff panels, a-line button down skirts, sheer bicycle shorts and holographic dresses paired with a glittery lower lash liner, knee pads and metallic sneakers. The show stopper dress is my favorite!










Sharp Stephane Rolland:
Stephane Rolland, a favorite of Cheryl Cole saw Kim Kardashian gracing his show at the front row. His collection focused on crafted asymmetrical ruffled layers and dramatic shapes. These two outfit's were my favorites:
