Brides are notorious for looking to the runways and red carpets for wedding inspiration. Whether it’s hair and makeup looks, or new trends in formal wear, the celebs never seem to disappoint and offer plenty of ideas for real wedding looks. This week’s Grammy Award ceremony was definitely a big night for fashion and while the music industry folks tend to take more risks in their clothing than the typical award show goers, there were a few looks we just know we will be seeing brides interpret for their big day. And the women weren’t alone… the men were some of our favorites! So if you or our groom are looking to really bring it with your ensembles for your wedding, look no further. We are bringing you the best of the Grammys right now!
While there a few ones NOT to follow, we just loved some of our favorite songstresses and their choices for Sunday’s show. The regulars like country glamazons Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill stunned in black (the color of the season) while the delightful Nicole Kidman chose a sweet, gold Vera Wang number for a night with husband Keith Urban proving yet again that a HUGE trend for all formal wear is metallic! But who can fail to mention, America’s sweetheart, fresh off of her Super bowl smash performance, Beyonce, wearing a refreshingly simple black and white (hello colorblocking!) jumpsuit by British designer Osman. What a perfect look for a rehearsal dinner or bridal shower. Teaming up a perfectly masculine look for a shower or dinner is a great balance to strike with your ultra feminine Bridal look. We love the idea and are adding “ look for jumpsuits” to our Spring to- do list.
Of the risk takers, we found a few to be our faves. Rihanna looked stunning in a custom red Alaia gown. Although the sheer paneling might be a bit much for a wedding look, the shape and of course the RED is going to be another trend we see over and over come this wedding season. And it wouldn’t be a true fashion round up without the queen of the Grammys carpet, Ms. Jennifer Lopez in a leg baring one shoulder gown by Zuhair Murad. This look could be super modern and sexy in white , perhaps with a more conservative slit. Paired with her dewey perfection of a face, the look was a huge hit!
And then there were the boys. And really when it comes to the man of the night, I don’t think there is any question that Justin Timberlake stole the show. First he brought sexy back, and now he’s bringing back classic, gentlemen’s dressing by rocking black and white loafers, pocket squares and who else but a Tom Ford classic black tuxedo – definitely a 2013 fashion trend. Also mimicking this look was his pal (and stage-mate) Jay-Z with both donning the timeless look and a nod to Old Hollywood with traditional cummerbunds. Could this be a return to the rat pack era? We sure hope so because JT has never looked (or sounded) better. And we must say, as a wedding blog, when it comes to Mr. Timberlake, marriage has never looked better!
