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”
What the shoes say: ”I’ve grown up and embracing my womanhood”
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.
What her shoes say: ”I am incredibly elegant, but I also like to have a bit of fun”
And just had to make one note because I am one of her hugest fans since the days of “Always be around”.
What her shoes say: ”I’m afraid to step into my own spotlight”
