Bad Outfits and the Grammy Red Carpet 2012

Why Do Singers Dress So Badly?

I'm not sure what it is about singers that so many have really bad fashion sense. I was watching the Grammy's and instead of an elegant preening parade that you normally would see at the Oscar Red Carpet, you just had to stare at the many fashion victims. It could be that the singer really is not as conscious of their body image as actors have learned to be. It could also be that singers have learned the value of flamboyance in their industry. Elton John was known for his outrageous outfits in his day. I guess these celebrities are just trying to express themselves in their own way. Please, someone help them to learn the fundamentals.

Fergie, it's too early for Halloween

It looks like Fergie was channeling Kate Middleton's look at the London Warhorse premiere, unfortunately, the granny panties and bra just doesn't prevent Fergie from looking like she was wearing an oversized doily. And why the orange and black combination, everyone knows those are Halloween colors. Fergie's look is no treat.

Nicki Minaj and Eminently Bad Taste

Minaj was the last act of the night to perform and it had involved either a Pope figure or the Church of England's Archbishop of Canterbury, no one could figure it out from the vestments the guy was wearing. It was one of the worst closing acts in the Grammy Awards I have ever seen. On the red carpet Minaj was giving people a hint of what was coming up but she just looked like a tricked out Little Red Riding Hood.

Sasha and the Terminator?

I have never heard of Sasha from Russia. I guess she was hoping that after the Grammy Awards people will talk about her. Unfortunately it wouldn't be for her singing as much as her questionable attire. Sasha was wearing some icy pink strapless prom dress looking thing with a disassembled gun on one arm. Was she thinking that the end of glasnost was nigh, and good Russian that she is, she wanted to be prepared?

Are hair and skirt supposed to match?

British R&B artist, Corinne Bailey Rae wore this Christian Siriano flirty and fun dress. I'm just wondering why she thought that her hair should look like her skirt is beyond me.

Bruno, the 50s want their hair back

Bruno Mars has been sporting this retro look for too long. It's time to stop Bruno, only Chuck Berry can pull off this look.

The Kings Of Leon copy the early Beatles...badly

The Kings of Leon were one of the winners at the Grammy awards. I guess they didn't think they would win because they were wearing outfits that the early Beatles rejected. I understand the slim pants look, I don't understand the pants that don't fit well. Is this a challange to the inner city big pants style? I hope not, neither is a good look.
