Oh the Grammys. The extravagant, exciting, electric Grammys are in town and what that means is time to party. As the music industry’s Oscars, this star studded event is nothing to take lightly, especially the nights of debauchery that go along with it. Grammy weekend is a huge weekend not just for the music industry, but for fashion, and beauty. Celebrities and people alike fly in to Los Angeles from all over the world for this exciting show and the week before is full of pre-Grammy events. Attending the 13th anniversary of the Friends and Family Grammy event at Paramount Studios, we got just a taste of what was to come for Grammy weekend.
Entering into Stage 18 at Paramount, tons of people rushed in for appetizers and drinks surrounded by an ambiance of flashing lights, LA city projections on the walls, playable The SIMS 3 station, photo booths, dazzling outfits and the who’s who of the music industry. Definitely a great way to start off the weekend. With performances by Kevin Rudolf, the fabulous Estelle, Jay Sean, Kevin Rudolf, Mayer Hawthorne, Theophilus London, with DJ sets by: ATRAK, Junkie XL, Benny Blanco, and Classixx, attendees were in a trance by the end of the evening.
Katy Perry arrived without her soon to be husband Russell Brand (who arrived later in the night), looking absolutely stunning as always. What makes her blush? You don’t even want to know (wink). Hot. George Clinton rocked the red carpet with hair reminiscent of Christmas. Silver was the metallic of the night. Estelle wore a chic high waisted belt with a glimmering silver long sleeve top, as some others didn’t quite get the metallic trend right. If there’s one thing to be learned, it was about funky fashion. Just a little tip to the Hollywood wanna be up and coming: Don’t channel your inner tin man or copycat Lady Gaga, there are tons of other trends that’ll have you stand out and not make you look like a jack. Here’s a few silver “DON’TS” that were quite amusing and almost night ruining. Icky. Not Hot.
