Fab Find Friday: Grammy Fashion Makes a Splash!

By Jewelrygal @1928jewelry

Pretty much smack dab in the middle of awards season is the most dramatic red carpet of them all- the Grammy Awards! A night of celebrating music, the Grammys bring out the most daring, unique and sometimes even crazy red carpet looks we’ve ever seen! The music industry is filled with artists who put on grand concerts and produce over the top music videos for a living, so you can be sure their personal style will be far from classic or boring. This is place to be wild and “put on a show” if you will.

I personally like it when the movers and shakers of the industry take advantage of this more casual red carpet affair. What would normally be a one way ticket to the worst dressed list can sometimes be the most talked about look of the night, and not necessarily in a bad way. The more creative and outrageous, the better (sometimes). Let’s take a look at some of the more provocative/gossip worthy ensembles for the night.

Clockwise from top left corner: Nicki Minaj came ready for her controversial performance later that night; Fergie wore a gorgeous lace gown, but made the worst choice possible in what she wore underneath; Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz added fashion forward details to classic looks; the queen of crazy Grammys fashion, Lady Gaga wears a custom created look by Donatella Versace herself!

However, like all awards show red carpets, each celebrity there shines in their own personal style, which means not everyone in attendance will be wearing crazy, avant-garde designs! Some came dressed to impress and wowed in sequins, slits and of course sparkling jewelry! Here then is our red carpet recap of some of the lovely ladies at the Grammys accessorizing in pieces just like some we have at 1928!

K ROWLANDFab Find Friday: Grammy Fashion Makes a Splash!
Kelly Rowland looked nothing short of lovely in her Alberta Ferretti dress complete with silver floral accents and  sheer details around the neckline. The singer toned down her usual sex appeal with this choice of dress but kept the dramatic bling! I think her choice of a bold cocktail ring and chandelier earrings were perfect for the dress. Check out 1928′s Triangular Chandelier Earrings for a similar pair that we can promise will accessorize any evening wear look just beautifully. And our Black and Silver Art Deco Filigree Ring is definitely a favorite!

K BECKINSALEFab Find Friday: Grammy Fashion Makes a Splash!
Another celeb to rock some stylish chandelier earrings was actress Kate Beckinsale. The brunette beauty walked the Grammys red carpet in a creme Zuhair Murad silk mini dress complete with a black velvet bow over one shoulder. We think Kate’s look is cute, chic and extra classy for the Grammys. Accessorizing with black Salvatore Ferregamo pumps and black earrings to match the bow, Kate Beckinsale looks great! Get a pair of earrings like hers- the Vintage Divine Black Teardrop Earrings will be worn for years to come, yet have a modern, trendy look.

E SPALDINGFab Find Friday: Grammy Fashion Makes a Splash!
On the opposite end of the spectrum from Kate Beckinsale’s classic ensemble was jazz singer Esperanza Spalding. As the winner of last year’s Grammy for Best New Artist, the young jazz musician stayed true to her unique sense of style and attended this year’s awards in a dip-dyed gown. The fade of the gown from silver/grey to a deep red is a color palette we haven’t seen very often and it brings together the red, silver and bronze accessories she is wearing just wonderfully. We especially like the addition of the red arm bangle Esperanza wore close to her elbow. 1928 has a bracelet you can wear just like that- the Desert Skies Red Borealis Wrap Bracelet!

K PERRYFab Find Friday: Grammy Fashion Makes a Splash!
Newly single and newly blue-haired Katy Perry was also in attendance as a nominee of multiple awards. Not ever one to play it safe, Katy Perry matched her gown to her hair color by wearing a powder blue Elie Saab Haute Couture gown fresh off the runway! With such a dramatic dress and head-to-toe monochromatic look, we like that Ms. Perry added simple crystal dangle earrings, and nothing more. Although we could also see her wearing our Sparkle Silver Cluster Drop Earrings for a slightly edgier pair.

C UNDERWOOD1Fab Find Friday: Grammy Fashion Makes a Splash!
There was no shortage of sequins at the Grammy’s especially thanks to Carrie Underwood! The chic country star looked radiant in her Gomez-Gracia long sleeved white gown covered in silver sequins. With such a modest neckline, hemline and the sleeves, we love the cutout back detail to show off Carrie’s killer figure. Her swept back hair was a great ‘do to show off her silver earrings that were the perfect complement to this glitzy, glamorous look. Our Doile Crescent Teardrop Filigree Earrings will give you the same pretty look as Carrie, but won’t cost you a pretty price.

T SWIFTFab Find Friday: Grammy Fashion Makes a Splash!
If there is one other celebrity who can pull off sparkle as well as Carrie Underwood, it has to be Taylor Swift! Sequins are Taylor’s “thing” and we think she looks all grown up and gorgeous in this Zuhair Murad Couture gown. We love the gold and nude color combo and her toned down makeup, hair and jewelry. Keeping it sleek and simple and letting the gown make the statement, Taylor added delicate drop earrings to make sure her outfit wasn’t too plain (once again- we just blogged about her wonderful use of accessories last week!)

RIHANNA FULLFab Find Friday: Grammy Fashion Makes a Splash!
Rihanna sure surprised us on the red carpet but not because she had a show-stopping, double-take gown on. Instead, Rihanna strayed from her usual daring fashions to sport a simple yet seriously sultry custom made black gown. Rihanna collaborated with Giorgio Armani himself on this design complete with plunging neckline, open back and thigh-high slit to show off all of the singer’s best assets. With her new blonde hair, Rihanna added some rock ‘n’ roll gold accessories that fit the dress to a T. Get Rihanna’s look with our Boutique Prominence Gold Cuff Bracelet and for a truly unique piece like her snake bangle, the 1960′s Vintage Gold Snake Bracelet. This item is currently not available, but check back soon!

So fierce, fashionable, fabulous or just plain fun, the 2012 Grammy’s left us plenty of fashion hits and misses to talk about until we hit the next awards show- the Oscars! Have a fab Friday!
