The 54th Annual Grammy Awards aired on CBS tonight, and while the performances were high energy, the Red Carpet Fashion were plain and underwhelming. It is indeed unfortunate that those in the music industry tend to not have as many style moments as actors, but there were a few to stand out tonight in a good way (and by good way, we don't mean the visual representation of legendary "good girl" Little Red Riding Hood portrayed by Nicki Minaj).
The best looks of the night had two things in common; Black and Gold. Sexy, black dresses were paired with the sharp, clean accent of the precious metal. Whether around Gwyneth Paltrow's waist, Alicia Keys' neck, or even Lady Gaga's disco stick, gold added the perfect touch of edge to the looks. Rihanna, in a custom Armani gown from her collaboration with the brand, used the metallic color as a separate accessory with her bag and bracelet.
Lady Gaga took gold to another level - as always - with a mast that makes anyone want to play a "Love Game." Gaga also drenched her nails in gold, a befitting color for the songstress who has a few gold Grammys of her own.
