Not much really needs to be said about Whitney Houston. It’s already all been said much better than I could, and it’s a sad situation.
The irony, of course, was that she died the day before the Grammys, an award show she was always so good at dominating with her immense talent and powerful voice.
I don’t know if there were lots of last-minute dress changes or if everyone had intended to wear this much black, but my favourite Grammys dresses were almost all black.
My favourite picks of the night:
I LOVE this girl. Seriously love her. She’s exactly who I would want as a best friend, and I am in total awe of her talent. She always looks stunning: classy, stylish and drop-dead gorgeous (her face! She’s so beautiful!). Okay, so enough Adele gushing, but she looked beautiful in a custom Giorgio Armani gown.
I can’t believe I’m complimenting something Paris Hilton wore! But this Basil Soda dress is truly stunning.
Rihanna looked fabulous in Giorgio Armani. I am loving her blonde hair too!
I was on the fence about but ultimately think it’s a hit:
I just thought the colour washed her out a bit, but otherwise I loved the exquisite work on Taylor Swift’s Zuhair Murad gown!
My absolute FAVOURITE:
You can’t see it as well here but Gwyneth Paltrow’s Stella McCartney dress was GORGEOUS. And you gotta love Stella McCartney too, for never using fur! I was a bit worried about Gwnyeth though – she looks so thin here! I hope it’s just the lighting…
My least favourites of the night:
I get that she was trying to a Madonna-type shock value thing here but I just thought it was dumb and pretty offensive, too. Sorry Nicki Minaj – even having Versace make this robe couldn’t make it a win in my book.
This gold Gucci gown was just too much gold – it looked garish on Katy Perry. Earlier in the night she arrived in a sparkly blue Elie Saab which would have been okay had her hair not been blue too…
Sorry Jessie J. Like Katy Perry above you, too garish! And I usually love Julien MacDonald gowns…
I was on the fence about but ultimately think it’s a miss:
I don’t have much good to say about Carrie Underwood – I acknowledge her voice but I have just heard too many nightmare stories about her bad attitude. And I also think this was just too much sparkle – it looked a bit tacky, especially on a night when others were playing it down a bit to honour the passing of one of music’s greats. In certain situations and with a bit less sparkle I’d like this Gomez-Gracia gown, but on this night, I’ll call it a miss…
My LEAST FAVOURITE of the night:
Sorry Fergie, but I don’t know what you were thinking here. I can’t believe this was Jean Paul Gaultier!
- What was your favourite Whitney Houston song?

- Did you watch the Grammys? Do you LOVE Adele as much as I do!!!!??
Here’s a great Grammys performance to leave you with…
