The 2011 Grammy Awards: Best & Worst in Beauty

Did you watch the Grammys last night? Well, we did and we had a lot of red carpet hits and misses to share. Read on, and be sure to share your favorites too.

Best in Beauty

Kim Kardashian at 2011 Grammy Awards

Kim Kardashian looked like a bronzed goddess walking down the red carpet; as she walked her dress radiated like sunshine. Kim’s hair gave new meaning to “make it big”. Her hair was volumized at the roots and the rest of her hair is curled; and each curl was separated to build fullness. Her face is chiseled using contour and the rest of her skin was illuminating. Who can miss her lashes? Her pout is perfected with her signature nude color.

Rihanna at Grammy Awards 2011

Rihanna looked breathtaking and was easy to pick out of the crowd. Her fire red hair was layered and had an extra bounce. Long side bangs swept across her face, her eyes peeped through as she looked over her shoulder. A silverish/white shadow was applied to her lid and a pop of color was added to the crease to add depth. Her deep blood stained lips added some drama to her already eye capturing dress.

Selena at Grammy Awards 2011

Selena Gomez was one of the younger women on the red carpet at the Grammy’s. She looked sophisticated and sweet in a gold Jay Manuel dress. Although she showed some skin, she kept it tasteful. Her hair was free flowing and graceful, over her shoulders. Her makeup complimented her dress with gold and bronze shadows. A light pink gloss made her lips shine.

Julianne Hough Grammy Awards 2011

Julianne Hough was absolutely stunning in a plunging neckline number, hugging her in all the right places. Her tresses were curled and pinned into a textured up-do; falling in all the right places. Her piercing blue eyes were accentuated with a bold black line and framed with perfectly arched brows. A mauve lip and bold cheeks amp up an otherwise natural look.

Worst in Beauty

Jordin Sparks Grammy 2011

Jordin Sparks looked like she just stepped out of the limo and was attending her prom. She looked like she did not have any makeup up. Her hair was was pulled into a half up/half down style, the rest of her hair left to hang. She had no color in her face and –unfortunately!– looked like she had a PhD in how to sport a sickly look.

Miley Cyrus Grammy Awards 2011
Miley Cyrus looked as if she stopped at Victoria’s Secret to buy her dress; her “friends” were popping out on either side. I am aware she has a song called “I Can’t Be Tamed,” but neither can her mane which looked completely unfinished. A random braid was positioned in the back of her head. Her makeup was lacking — just like her dress.

Nicki Minaj Grammy 2011
Nicki Minaj was an animal disaster. Dressed head to toe, literally, in leopard. Her dress resembled a parachute, legs covered in leopard tights and leopard shoes. The top of her hair was in a bleached white afro with a black strip, resembling the Bride of Frankenstein. The scalp of her wig was dyed to resemble leopard print. Nicki’s makeup was her usual beat face with a Barbie pink lip.

Do you agree with these best and worst looks? If not, let us know why and which celebs rocked (or missed) the boat.
