Grammys

2012 ACM Best Dressed

Another awards show, another chance to oogle the amazing red carpet dresses! I’m a huge country music fan, I think that as a whole, country artists are the classiest, sweetest breed of musicians…and it refelcts in their attire.

I love that they all put in the effort to look fashionable, respectable, and professional at awards shows that are based around adkowledging them, and their music. It’s refreshing to see an awards show that has not turned into a mockery/Halloween party. (Cough, cough…the Grammys)

The Academy of Country Music Awards did not disappoint this year!

Here are my picks for best dressed…

(Photo credit OMG!Yahoo) Jake Owens beautiful girlfriend, Lacey Buchanan. She's not even an artist, but hey...you've got to give credit where credit is due! She looked amazing at the ACMs!
(Photo credit OMG!Yahoo) Taylor Swift is seriously stepping up her fashion game! She looked so chic and mature in this J. Mendel white column gown!
(Photo credit OMG!Yahoo) The amazing Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland wins my vote because she brought some Spring color to the carpet! She looks amazing in this pink chiffon and lace dress...and the sparkly yellow empire belt makes it that much more girly and fun 🙂

One more for good measure…

(Photo credit OMG!Yahoo) I've said it before and I'll say it again...Carrie Underwood is human perfection! She can do no wrong when it comes to fashion... she always secures a top 3 best dressed position in my book. 😉

Who did you think was the best dressed at the ACM’s this year?

Amazing Katy Perry “Part of Me” Cover

Did you hear Katy Perry’s newest single “Part of Me”? She debuted the song with a wild performance at the Grammys a few weeks ago…along with some wild hair…

It's okay Katy, I went through a crimping phase too... 😉

My boyfriend is an amazing singer and decided to do a cover of this song a couple weeks ago! Ironically, Perez Hilton is hosting a “Can YOU Sing” cover competition and requested that participants sing “Part Of Me”

Below is his official entry video, he created a beautiful acoustic rendition, that’s in my opinion much better than the original song!

Check it out, and let me know what you think!

The Louboutin Manicure!

During the Grammys last night, I tweeted how much I LOVED that Adele showed up with a Louboutin manicure! A bunch of people tweeted me back asking what exactly that was, so here’s a quick 101:

Traditionally, it’s a black polish on top, and a red polish under the nail…resembling a Louboutin shoe!

Adele had a silver polish on top of her nails with the red polish underneath to match her Louboutin shoes –>

I’ve had the Louboutin mani on my radar for a while, but have yet to try one since I’ve been on a gel-kick. I can’t imagine the red bottom would last very long, but for a night out I think it’s an amazing look! 🙂

Have you tried a Louboutin manicure yet?

2012 Grammy Recap

Another awards show has come and gone, and boy was it an interesting one.

We watched at our apartment and filled up on far too many finger foods! (I was on a roll in the kitchen yesterday!)

Rice crispies, fresh mozz, bruschetta, pigs in a blanket, nachos and peanut butter cookies 🙂

We all got our tweeting fingers ready and settled in for the pre-show (obviously the best part ;))

Let’s start with the red carpet- the good, the bad, and the ugly! We’ll get the bad out of the way…and let me be clear…it was quite difficult to narrow it down.

1) I love Nicki Minaj- it’s hard not to love her. But between this sac-religious mockery, and her on stage exorcism…I just don’t get. But I guess that’s what makes her Nicki! *Sigh*

2) Who even is this? Her ploy to get me to google her didn’t work.

3) Fergie deemed this dress the “safe” choice. Honestly, if she had cute little black underwear on as opposed to the control top spanx, it would have saved the dress.

On to my faves!

4) I’ve got to give props to Giuliana, she’s not even an artist, but she might as well have been! This skinny mini always looks adorable, but I LOVED her LBD and gold belt last night- a nice little ode to the Grammys 😉 She’s so cute!

5) Kelly Rowland looked STUNNING. She’s so talented, classy, and professional- this completely exudes that.

I couldn’t help but notice her hair was very Jessica Simpson-esque circa 2005 (@ the MTV Movie Awards).

Ugh, I died for J. Simps- she was such a babe.

6) And then there was Carrie Underwood- this woman is so perfectly beautiful, talented, and absolutely phenomenal that she can do no wrong. Out of all the high neck-long sleeved dresses last night, she is the only one that I think was able to pull it off flawlessly!

As for the show, I think that Jennifer Hudson did such an amazing job with her Whitney Tribute! However, I couldn’t help waiting for her double, wearing white, to come out and sing next to her. I’ve been brainwashed by weight watchers!

Taylor Swift is my girl, she did her thing with Mean!

And of course Adele was the big winner, every time she got to the mic she reminded me of Bridget Jones lol- she was cute, she deserved all that she got! (AND she had a Louboutin mani! LOVEEE!)

Rihanna’s performance was fun, but I officially prefer my boyfriends version of “We Found Love” over the original! Check it out 🙂
