The Grammys ® is one of my favorite award shows for shoes because musicians tend to push the boundaries when it comes to fashion.  And of course, my signature tagline (and philosophy), what your shoes say about you is quite revealing at a show like this.  There was a trend toward DM boots in the performances (RihannaKaty Perry) — indicating a bit of a sea-change in what women are wearing to perform in, and for men we saw a lot of cool trainers.

My Top Five Shoes at the Grammys ®:

Number five, Skylar Grey arrived on the red carpet early, and I was immediately taken with her choice.  She wore a white 1920’s inspired knee length dress and instead of pairing it with anything matchy matchy she went for a full on bold red, pointed toe platform booty-stiletto hybrid.  I was into it.

What the shoes say: “Bold and passionate, understated glamour”

Number four on my list is Diana Ross.  Loved the crystal embellished t-strap kitten heel sandals.  Appropriate, not over the top, and loved the combo with her pantsuit. she threw in some of-the-moment coral toenail color which popped the outfit.  Another example of how your pedicure can optimize an all-black outfit.

What the shoes say: “I’m still in it to win it”

Rihanna + Alicia Keys coming in together at Number Three.  Many an accolade has been poured on for Rihanna’s ensemble and while I wasn’t a super big fan of the hair situation, I did love her clear PVC and black ankle-strap Louboutins.  They were a perfect elegant compliment to an incredibly sexy dress.

What the shoes say: “I’m growing up and embracing my inner lady”

For Alicia, I loved the knee length dress and bold shoulder pads. Paired with this shoe, I’d say it was the height of elegance.

Number Two, Cyndi Lauper. Even though she got dissed by some for her ensemble, I love her mary jane style gold metallic and black suede peep toe platform stilettos. I thought they looked hot and went amazingly with her entire outfit.

What her shoes say: “I am still the queen of fun, bitches”

And of course, Adele in at Number One.  I can’t emphasize enough how much her understated old-school glamour is an extremely refreshing addition to the fashion landscape.  The focus is always on the voice and the music, and this time was no different. I thought her dress was perfect and her shoes a fitting compliment.    Her Christian Louboutin Fifi in encrusted silver glitter showed offjust a peek underneath her glittery black dress and added a sense of fun and youth to what could have been a somber dress.  Perfection untold.

And just had to make one note because I am one of her hugest fans since the days of “Always be around”

Robyn, my friend, WHAT were you thinking? The ultimate  fashion self-sabotage in the form of a shoe.  Please call me next time. I will help you into the perfect shoes.
