Grammy Awards: Katy Perry In Valentino Couture


The Grammy’s were held last night in Los Angeles and as always I found the red carpet to be a little predictable – metallics, shimmering fabrics, tight, tight and a very tight, and the odd quirky look to showcase the musician on the red carpet.

One star I can generally depend on to wow me has to be Katy Perry, do you remember when she wore that gorgeous sky blue Elie Saab gown in 2012, well last night she was a vision in tulle wearing a stunning Valentino Couture gown that might look a little familiar, yep it is one that I featured on my Couture Bride post last week.

Other that the fact it was fresh off the runway, I love that it seemed to have been made for the Grammy Awards with the embroidered musical notes on the tulle skirt. It is fun, elegant and romantic all at the same time and it really does look like a work of art. Apparently this beautiful gown took 1,600 hours to do all the embroidery – the craftsmanship is sublime.

Not content with just one look from Valentino’s spring couture collection, Katy also looked incredible in a shorter red tulle with a feathered serpent to the after party. As much as I love the red carpet gown, and I do, I think this flirty number is my favourite – I love the rich colour of the dress and the snake motif. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!katy-perry-grammys-valentinoMadonna-ralph-lauren

Another great look I just had to share was Madonna wearing a wide-leg Ralph Lauren tuxedo with a black felt gaucho hat, a sparkly fingerless glove, and a grill, yep if you saw her interview on E! she showed off her mouth jewellery.

If I can forget about the grill, as I hate them, I love, love, love this mannish look from Madonna. I am a huge fan of girlies in suits and this one will be remembered I am sure. Also no-one else works the red carpet like Madonna!!!

Were you a fan of Katy Perry’s and Madonna’s looks at last night’s Grammy Awards?

Downton Abbey: Michelle Dockery In Ralph Lauren Collection

michelle dockery, ralph lauren, downton abbey


Who: Michelle Dockery

Where: At an evening with the cast and producers of PBS Masterpiece series “Downton Abbey” hosted by Ralph Lauren & Graydon Carter in New York City

Wearing: A one-shouldered black embroidered leather Ralph Lauren Collection dress, teamed with Ralph Lauren Collection shoes and vintage jewellery

Verdict: I am not sure why Lady Mary looks like a deer caught in headlights in this image as she looks fabulous in this uber-tight and very sexy Ralph Lauren Collection dress, which kind of reminds me of Versace.

I do wish that she had taken a risk and shortened this dress a little, but I suppose she is trying to do edgy while still being sophisticated, which works but I would have loved her to really wow me.

Finishing up her look is a faux bob, it seems everyone wants shorter hair lately, and a gorgeous deep pink lippy, she really does do minimal make-up well.

Overall I like this look. What do you think of Lady Mary – did she play it a little too safe?
