Floral Fashions weren’t blooming at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
But then again the fashions at the Grammys are more costumes than couture. Unlike the Golden Globes, very few items would one wear anywhere but on stage.
There were some notable exceptions.
Esperanza Spalding, who won the best jazz vocal album for “12 Little Spells,” wore a neon chartreuse jumpsuit that had the positive message of “Life Force” in bold graphics. The fabric also had a cluster of colorful flowers throughout the catsuit making it both happy and stylish.
Spalding won her fourth Grammy. The musical prodigy played violin in the Chamber Music Society of Oregon at five years old. and continues to impress. She was a unanimous pick for Flower Power Daily’s Floral Fashion award for the night.
Others whose floral fashions we liked included Tanya Tucker who had a floral embroidered blazer that suited her literally and figuratively. It had delicate embroidery and took what could have been boring black to a higher level.
Country singer Brandi Carlile also rocked with her floral tailored suit. This one would want to wear anywhere. Plus you could wear the jacket and pants with many outfits.
Speaking of beautiful blazers, rapper YBN Cordae sported a fantastic rose embossed tuxedo jacket that was elegant but hip. Men have been making many more fashion statements with flowers, especially for evening attire.
Another trailblazer was Gwen Stefani. Not that you would wear her outfit on a date night to the movies, we do love her style. At first glance, her very short dress looked like a white sequined number. However, the sequins did form beautiful delicate flowers that are worth noting and celebrating. She paired her Versace mini-dress with matching thigh-high boots.
Plus if you look good, you feel good. And seeing her glow next to Blake Shelton was also very sweet.
Another couple that got our attention was Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. Chopra, who is an actress on “Sky is Pink,” had a dress on with a long floral train. However, we almost missed it because there was so much cleavage showing that it distracted from the beauty of the fabric. You know it’s not a good sign when the highlight of the outfit is the train of the dress – which kind of means this was a fashion trainwreck.
It didn’t hit the right note at all. But luckily there were many singers who did – as least with their songs.
