Late 2013 brought us Jaimie Alexander, bless her heart, and the trend of wearing ‘Why even bother?’ dresses blessed our inboxes and TV screens. Sheer and literally ‘barely there’ dresses became a staple on the red carpet (and in our hearts).
We’ve probably seen a lot more of Rihanna than what she revealed in the dress she wore to the Pre-Grammy Gala, but that doesn’t mean the dress was any less risqué. The all-too-bright and slightly tacky yellow dress barely stuck onto her skin and she was seen checking several times if her dress exposed any of her naughty bits. The threat of a wardrobe malfunction didn’t stop her from dancing in her seat though.
The nominees for next year’s Grammys came out this weekend, and the faulty selection made it no better than the recent VMAs. However, as the awards’ night is still more than a month away, there’s still hope if they consider these suggestions…

Lady Gaga has been announced as a performer for next months Grammy’s.
Grammy organizers had yet to announce the singers performance, but her own choreographer Laurie-Ann Gibson let the news slip out via Twitter.
Gibson’s Tweet on Jan. 11 read:
“Grammy meeting performance extraordinaire..!!! On its way… ”
A fan then asked Gibson if Gaga would be performing at the Grammy awards show to which she quickly responded with a simple “yes.”
One of the highlights of last weekend’s Grammy Awards was the Lifetime Achievement Award for the late Michael Jackson. Accepting the award are MJ’s two eldest kids, Prince and Paris, who made their first appearance since the late King of Pop’s memorial service last year.
“We’re proud to be here to accept this award on behalf of our father, Michael Jackson,” said Prince, trying to hold it together. “First we’d like to thank God for watching over us for these past seven months and our Grandma and Grandpa for their love and support. We’d also like to thank the fans. Our father loved you so much since you were always there for him.”
“Through all his songs, [our father’s] message was simple: love,” said Prince Michael, 12. “We will continue to spread his message and help the world.” He and his sister Paris, 11, were surrounded by their cousins (remember 3T?) as they gave their speech onstage.
“Daddy was supposed to be here. Daddy was gonna perform but he couldn’t perform last year,” said a teary-eyed Paris to an emotional audience. “Thank you, we love you Daddy.”
What’s a Grammy show without those who’d dare stun us with their choice of threads, crazy antics, or mere celebrity presence? Read on to see why these five stars incurred a little gasp from yours truly.

Last night’s gathering of entertainers brought out a new trend for red-carpet dressing. Perhaps it’s the 2010 bug where fashionistas are out to challenge the conventional “glam-glam-glam” mantra. Here are my top 10 picks for the Grammy’s best dressed, in no particular order.
Before the show, Katy Perry tweeted: “[sic] I’m excited 4 today, all the performances r going to be fab & beauty is gonna be on point! Today I’m channeling Indian Betty Paige princess!” It looks like her Zac Posen dress did the job.
Rihanna brushed off rumors that she was blacklisted from the Grammys. Her Elie Saab Haute Couture gown made the feathered collar a must-have fashion detail.
