Grammys: Best Dressed

There's something fabulous about the Grammys. They're so brash, so bling. As a consequence the fashion is often - how shall I put this? - questionable. This year was no exception (Nicki Minaj, Fergie I'm looking at you) but there were some great looks too.

You know the drill by now. In no particular order etc etc:

Rihanna in Giorgio Armani

When you've got a body like hers, why bother with anything fussy? The clean lines and minimalist design of this dress show Rihanna off to amazing effect. Great accessories too - gold and black just works. Still unconvinced by her 80s hair though!

Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad

Why was Kate Beckinsale at the Grammys? Who knows but her dress is stunning. I'm a huge fan of Grecian style draping and this dress shows exactly why. It's just flattering, whatever your figure. Lovely natural beauty look too. (In the unscientific test I do on my Pinterest Awards Season 2012 board this look was a runaway winner by the biggest margin of the season so far)

Kelly Rowland in Alberta Ferretti

Girlie loveliness. The detail on the bust is stunning and the colour is beautiful. Another less-is-more beauty look with minimal accessories - why do you need accessories in a dress this gorge?

Kelly Osbourne in Tony Ward

What was I saying about the Grammys being bling?! I love this assymetric column gown, especially the clever draping at the waist which really shows off a fabulously trim figure. Still unconvinced by the hair colour though.

Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad

A second hit for Zuhair Murad - nice to see someone other than the usual big boys achieving that.The detail on this dress is so intricate and beautiful, and the colour is just the right nude tone for someone of Swift's colouring. Personally would have preferred a slightly less severe hair style, but overall still a great look.
