The red carpet celebrity arrivals for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards are over, but the fashion talk has just begun. Who was best dressed? Who was worst dressed? Who wore it better? The list of questions goes on and on and is open for debate. But let’s look at the bigger picture and ask, what were the red carpet’s biggest trends?
Sequins. Cut Outs. Slits.
These three trends were among a majority of the dresses on the red carpet by celebrities including Selena Gomez, Ciara, Demi Lovato, and Meghan Trainor.
Now my philosophy is always less is more, but some dresses combined multiple elements that just worked. For example, mine and Taylor Swift’s BFF (yeah, I wish!) Selena Gomez. Her dress combined all-over sequins with a subtle side cut outs which complimented each other nicely. I think the positioning of the cut outs were modest while the plunging neckline added some sass to her look. The floor length brought some sophistication while the all-over sequin texture was just the right amount of sparkle to tie it all together. Under the lights of the red carpet, Selena looked fabulous. I could have done without the hoop earrings though girlfriend.

Talk about red carpet chic…Demi Lovato nailed it. An unconventional look for a start-studded event, but girlfriend killed it! If only I could pass this suit off at work on a day-to-day basis! The plunging neckline and high slit skirt took the standard suit set to a whole other level. The body chain was a nice touch to add edginess. And let’s just take a moment to applaud Demi’s long locks again.
During her tribute performance, Demi sported another blazer with plunging neckline and fitted pants. This outfit highlighted her petite frame and is definitely something I could rock in the office (with a shirt underneath the blazer of course).
I use a blazer as a layering trick to create a smooth and slimmer silhouette. Ladies, you know what I’m talking about…hiding those love handles or bra bulges.
Queen of the side slit, Carrie Underwood did not disappoint on the red carpet. Her toned leg was on display in a tasteful sweetheart floor length gown. She looked absolutely stunning. A side slit can be a bit much but the oversized bow helped to downplay the thigh high slit and add sophistication. This is a gown I can see being worn at the Met Gala. Very chic and elegant Carrie…loved it!
