Style To Steal Or Girl, Stop: Alicia Keys Slays, Amber Rose Tans And What Is On Pharrell’s Head?

January 26, 2014 ‐ By

Aside from picking up awards and watching some dope (and sometimes wack) performances, the Grammys are always good for fashion. It’s the night for stars to dress up like the rock stars they are–or to come out the house looking a mess. You never know what you’ll get. Let’s take a look at some fashions that had us talking and made us want to steal the looks or stop them dead in their tracks.

Grammys fashion


Erica Campbell

I guess after all that random backlash Erica Campbell received from some about the tight white dress she wore in a photoshoot for a new single, Campbell decided to stay covered up. She hit the red carpet with her daughter in this pink lace ensemble, and while I’m loving the hair and the makeup, I get “First Lady” vibe from this look. That’s not a bad thing…just not a good thing for the Grammys. Stop.

    Am i the only one that thinks fantasia was dressed like the floor manager at T.J maxx…..that red rope that lace thing she had on and i say thing because i truly do not know what else to call what she had on

    What’s up with the dirty blond with the dark roots?????? I think they all have the same stylist. Ms. Michelle was so original. Everyone else is all the same. Sad!!

    Erica Campbell is damm if she does and damm if she don’t. That’s the way this world is.

    IDK but I feel Beyonce could have done better. I feel like as an artist, she is more established and just overall more classy (well was anyway) than what she has been giving us lately. The dress is reminiscent of something rihanna would wear. No offense to Rih or anything, but her and Bey are (well were) on different levels. Give be classy Bey back!!!

    Did I miss something here? Alicia looks absolutely miserable. She always looks uncomfortable in women’s clothing. She looks like a gay woman that is trying to fit into society’s standards. No shade, for real. Her and Swizz have zero chemistry.

      Love Chrisette’s look very chic and love the prints! Love Love her natural!!!!! Alicia did look very uncomfortable in that dress and less feminime. The blond showing the dark roots (boob) is so over done!!!!!

    so basically u don’t like blonde bobs parted in the middle because u didn’t have anything to say about the ones with the side swoop…i thought C & B’s hair both looked nice.

    Michael Costello from Project Runway really dressed the ladies for this grammys, he should have won the Runway but he is making it work where it really counts. kudos to him.

    I liked Beyonce’s dress, liked Chrissette Michelle’s outfit. I did not like Fantasia’s dress, though I suppose the red necklace was to add a pop of color. I did not like Paula’s dress at all – the pattern was not flattering to her. This is the most “Braxton” Tamar has looked to me – I immediately see big sis Towanda when seeing her in that picture. What was the deal with all of the fishtails and long lengths? It doesn’t suit everyone.

    I loved Bey’s dress. And I’m not even gonna get on Pharrell’s park ranger hat!!

  • FeelsGood

    Not a fan of the print, but I love what Chrissy is wearing. Then again, I’m biased when it comes to her! Paula/Fantasia…umm….just no.

    This was Erica’s chance to wear something more slay-able. Especially to help promote her solo career and have people looking like, “Who is this woman? She’s fierce!” She missed it. I looove Beyonce’s dress but her hair and the color lipstick made her look old and washed out. It’s time to darken the blonde some. Maybe even a strawberry blonde? Chrisette Michele, yaaas darling! Whats up to ol dude photo bombing you in the background! Alicia? Meh. Amber Rose looked pretty. Ashanti….your hair was cute. Rocsi, Paula P. and Pharrell (aka Smokey The Bear) were worst dressed. Ciara and Colbie Calliat were best dressed of the evening IMO.
    P.S. Designer Michael Costello is winning this year!
    P.S.S. Who was the lady with Kendrick????

  • At A Crossroads

    Erica looked good too. Paula’s dress was ugly.

  • At A Crossroads

    What is up with the blond and dark roots? Damn near everybody has that look. Beyonce’s hair was wack. But love the dress. So was Alicia’s hair. And her dress wasnt all that but I love the color. Fantasia’s dress wasnt bad, but it was too old looking for her. Pretty much everyone’s hair was wack. Ashanti looked weird in that pic. Loved Ciara’s dress but that hair was terrible. Tamar looked good bit she’s another one with the blond and dark roots. Amber looked nice but extremely shiny. Roxy looked boring. I don’t really like Chrisette Michelle’s look either. Everyone either had a fabulous dress and ugly hair. Or a boring ensemble with ugly hair.

      Thank you! I thought fashion/style/glamour was supposed to be about the individual wearer. Tamar, Ciara, Ashanti, and Beyoncé all had the same overall look to their hair. If you’re going to wear the same hair, might as well wear the same dress, too. What’s the point of going to a fashion-conscious event if you don’t make an effort to look like you and ONLY you.

  • Nicole Jazzette Johnson

    Erica looks gorgeous in this gown. It covers no more than the stated white dress she wore that received so much criticism. She looks good and those that didn’t like it probably would have preferred her in sackcloth anyway.. Haters!!!

  • Nicole Jazzette Johnson

    QQn Fantasia looked a hot mess in this get-up stylist should be fired ASAP….

  • Maggie

    Finally Beyonce is wearing something that doesn’t look like her mother dressed her.
