OK, so the Grammy Awards are supposed to be all about the singing, but we know better.
Heck, it's about the wardrobe changes!
This, in stark contrast to the grand dame of awards, the Oscars (slated for Feb. 24), where stars are locked into their ensembles from the red carpet on. But with the Grammys, someone like Beyonce (pictured in AP photos), who also performed, might change as many as four times between her arrival and her after-party departure.
By the way: Loved the lighter locks on this bundle of talent. I'm thinking she opted for the look because of her rockin' duet with none other than Tina Turner. We should all be able to move that well at age 68 - and in silver spandex no less.
Also, kudos to fashion (and Grammy) winners Alicia Keys and Rihanna, as well as to Fergie, who looked great with all three of her outfit changes.
Still, as with any awards show, there's always a few style missteps. I'm guessing no one got hold of Kid Rock with the attire requirements. He looked, well, "stringy" and strung out. Definitely a style don't.
And who - or perhaps what - got hold of Fantasia Barrino's hair?! Her two-toned (white/black) coif was sheared on one side and with what looked like a hair attachment on the other. I wish the Season 3 "American Idol" winner had found a mirror before Sunday's show.
I was made aware of her style fiasco via TMZ.com on Friday. The site showed pics of Fantasia at a pre-Grammy swag gathering. Too bad they weren't passing out free hair appointments along with the energy drinks!
