Kelly Osbourne

2012 Grammy Awards

Last night, the 54th Annual Grammy Awards were held at the Staples Center in Los Angelos. The Grammys are one of my favorite awards shows because I am obsessed with, live, breathe music. Now, the Grammys really only cater to a fraction of my musical tastes because only a fraction of the music I enjoy is commericla enough to be recognized by the mainstream media outlets (Which is more than perfectly fine with me. I HATE when something I love so much (especially a band) is polluted and ruined by bandwagon fans. Now, thats not to say that I hate when bands “sell out” and find success in the mainstream. I’m a girl who wants her cake and to eat it too I guess… Enough of this tangent.) But at least the Grammys can usually deliver a few great, memorable performances and of course, my favorite, the perfect outlet for fabulous fashion! Shall we then?

MY FAVORITE LOOK OF THE NIGHT:

Rihanna at the 2012 Grammy Awards

Rihanna, for me, looked the best on the red carpet. I love everything about this from the plunging neckline to the Louboutins. Her amazing, wild hair and makeup complete everything that is fabulous about this look.

BEST DRESSED

Kate Beckinsale, Kelly Rowland and Queen Adele all looking fab at the 2012 Grammys

One of my biggest Girl Crushes is Kate Beckinsale and at the Grammys, she looked amazing! I also loved Kelly Rowland; her gown is gorg and her hair is fierce. And Queen Adele is the winner of the world looking amazing and classic.

Jajjie J, Corinne Bailey Rae and Kelly Osbourne

Jessie J looked like my Mirror-Ballgown Dream come true! I love this! Corinne Bailey Rae, one of my favorite female musicians, looked totally gorgeous and completely awesome all at the same time. Kelly Osbourne looked so elegant! (and I love her)

John Legend, Most of Kings of Leon, Common

Guys were looking swagertastic last night as well.

Ok, she’s bat-sh*t crazy, but I have to give credit to Lady Gaga.

Lady Gaga at the 2012 Grammy Awards

She may be to good to walk the red carpet, but I love that she looks like a citizen of The Capitol (THE HUNGER GAMES!!!!!!!). Who else but Gaga can pull off a full body veil and a golden staff? Not Nicki Minaj, thats for damn sure. And come on, she’s hanging with Sir Paul McCatney…

***Can we please take a moment to recognize how brave it was of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton to sit next to her… those poor, pimple love-fools.***

WORST DRESSED

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift

Katy Perry, I am so disappointed. WTF is this anyway? First of all, your dress doesn’t have to match your hair. Second, this looks like a bridesmaid gown from 1978. Taylor Swift annoys the crap out of me anyway, this gown makes her look like some 80s Hong Kong call girl.

Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, Fergie

I’m not even sure why I hate this look on Alicia Keys, but I do. She wearing the same Christina Louboutin heels as Rihanna (go back and look.), but with Rihanna’s long gown, the little toes sticking out awkwardly doesn’t stand out so much. I’m also not digging the gold amour protecting her neck and chest. Carrie Underwood looks winder than a double-wide trailer. (Now even her fans can understand why I hate this gown.) Everyone kept talking about how “daring” Fergie was for wearing this. First of all, it’s screaming for attention. Second, if she was so damn daring she wouldn’t have selected rib-high granny panties to wear underneath (yeah, we know you’re looking for that all day tummy control Fergie). And Finally, this color combo only reminds me of Halloween, which is my favorite holiday and somehow appropriate for how scarey this is. Ugh.

ABSOLUTE WORST DRESSED

Nicki Minaj's most recent desperate cry for attention

You. Are. Not. Gaga, Bitch. This is not a “statement”. This is, yet another, desperate cry for attention. We may have been shocked by Madonna’s ‘Like a Prayer” when it came out but this is not shocking. This is not thought-provoking. This is stupid.

Every award show and it’s given red carpet has a few attendees that just make me question: “Why the f*ck are you here?” From now on, I will have a special part of each red carpet post specifically for this: WTFAYH?! The Grammys presented me with at least three of these attendees:

WTFAYH? Why The F*ck Are You Here, Rebecca Black, Paris Hilton and Snooki?

ON WITH THE SHOW!

Performances

Jennifer Hudson, Bruno Mars, The Beach Boys with Foster the People and Maroon5

Of course, at every oppertunity, somebody mentioned Whitney Houston.. ok.. then we had to watch Jennifer Hudson do her best impression of her. Bruno Mars gave, what I thought, was an incredible performance! The Beach Boys performed with Foster the People and Maroon5, performing with Maroon5 being their first mistake. They’re clearly… aged. And where the hell was John Stamos?!

Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj,Taylor Swift.

Ok, Katy Perry’s performance in a very unflattering costume was pretty horrid. I hate to say it because I love Katy but the dopplerganger opening with “E.T.” and then this new, very angry song about moving on… go over-eat ice cream and talk about your ex with girlfriends… And Nicki Minaj. Um….. Waste. Of.Time. Every moment of Nicki’s performance, complete with a completely stupid and completely unnecessary video of “Roman”, all I could think was that that time could have (and should have) been given to Paul McCartney… I’m just sayin’. Taylor Swift… what is this elaborate, hillbilly set? I don’t get you… and you’re f*cking lame. Oh, I’m sorry, am I being ‘mean’? Maybe it’s because everything you do is horrible… and Beyonce had one of the best babies of the year…

Rihanna performs with Coldplay and cuddles with Katy Perry in the audience.

Rihanna’s performance with Coldplay made me totally go “wtf?” when it started… then I started asking “Where the hell is Coldplay?” Chris Martin finally showed up and the performance was… eh… But Rihanna and Katy Perry cuddling in the audience was way adorable and more entertaining to watch than her performance.

Adele's performance at the 2012 Grammys

Queen Adele was breath-taking, mind-blowing, tear-jerking and over-all incredible, as usual. I can’t say how much I love this woman. She is so freaking amazing and I can listen to her albums from start to finish and enjoy them every time… especially when I want to cry for a bit or belt my lungs out (alone. by myself. so nobody gets hurt.)

Paul McCartney performed twice at the 54th annoual Grammy Awards

Oh Paul. SIR Paul McCartney. I can not express how much I love this man either. I share this love with so mnay and thats one of the things I find most beautiful about him. Paul first performed a song from his new cd “Kisses on the Bottom” but then took the stage again with Bruce Springdstien, The Foo Fighters and others who had b=performed earlier in the night. He performed, the impecible, Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End… I died.

***Look how awesome Dave Grohl looks! (Love that man too!)***

WINNERS

Adele is the 54th Annual Grammy Awards' big winner

And the winners are: Adele. Adele. and Adele. … She swept the damn show. I was so happy every time they called her name and every time she accepted it was adorable and gracious and so classy.

2012 Golden Globe Awards

Ricky Gervais hosted the 2012 Golden Globe Awards tonight in spite of or beacuse of all the headlines he made last year with his jabs at all of Hollywood’s elite. I love Ricky and was disappointed at how infrequently throughout the show that he was actually allowed to speak. Is it really considered hosting if you only make an appearance on stage once every hour?

Host of the 2012 Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais

Tonight’s Golden Globe awards provided some AMAZING looks and some awkward moments. In fact one of the most awkward things to happen started during E! New’s red carpet coveage, where Fashion Police’s Kelly Osbourne kept insisting how much Sophia Vergara’s dress looked like hers…. I’ll let you decide, but I’m sure you’ll come to the same conclision as I did…. Yeah, poor Kelly.

Sophia looks amazing!!! and so does Betty White!

Lets start with my favorite looks from the Red Carpet and to begin, The Best Looking Gingers.

Emma Stone - One of my favorite gingers and one of my favorite looks from the evening.

Nicole Kidman

Debra Messing

Julianne Moore - I wouldve liked this even more if it didn't have the frill in the middle. Also, absolutely love the green earrings!!!

Here are the other looks of the evening that I absolutely loved:

Zooey Deschanel - This was my absolute favorite look of the night! Plus, I am a huge fan of fun fingernails and Zooey's were painted like little tuxedos!

Evan Rachel Wood - I loved her feathery frock!

Reese Witherspoon

Angelina Jolie - LOVE the pops of red. Hated all the pretentiousness on the red carpet.

Charlize Theron

Kate Beckinsale

Other Great Looks:

Claire Danes and Heidi Klum both looked fabulous!

Mila Kunis, Jessica Alba, Kate Winselt, Sophia Veragara

Rooney Mara, Kristen Wiig - even though I cant stand her, Nicole Richie - not sure why she was there though, Selma Hayek

But the ladies were not alone in the Best Looks department. Here are, who I think, were the best dressed men of the evening… it doesn’t have a lot to do with what they wore either.

Ewan Gregor - that fine piece of scottish a.., Zachary Levi - the sweet piece I only recently noticed, now I'm in love. Johnny Depp - loved the emerald green vest and pocket watch with matching green face!, Elton John and David Furnish, Leonardo DiCaprio

…. and the worst looks:

1.) Jessica Beil - she must have been so excited about her recent engagement to Justin Timberlake (and who wouldnt be?) that she time traveled back to 1902 to pick out her wedding dress.I'm just not sure why she's wearing it to the Golden Globes. 2.) Kelly MacDonald - you are amazing on Boardwalk Empire. You just look awful though. 3.) Emily Gould - Homeland's housewife... why are you dressed like a call girl brought on a trip to Monte Carlo? 4.) Missi Pyle - ??? when did you start doing real movies?

1.) Busy Philips... I can't even begin right now. 2.) Sarah Michelle Gellar and Piper Perabo - what, the f*ck, whereyou guys thinking? 3.) Connie Britton - this is a dressy kind of occasion. you shoulve rsvp'ed no to the bbq you came from before you arrived if you weren't going to have time to change.

1.) Julie Bowen - not only do you look horrible, but you annoy me, a lot. 2.) Laura Linney - this is ugly. 3.) Natalie Portman - too plain. 4.) Tina Fey - I love you so much. Why the puffy hair and ugly gown?

Madonna didn't look as gross and dead as she usualy does, so that good I guess. But the one glove and cheap-looking chunky cross necklace just made the dress look worse.

Sharon!? Why???I love you so much. I adore you... what is this?

On with the show……

One of the first shots which led to one of my first thoughts of the show was “Look how amazing Nicole Kidman and Harrison Ford look together. Must better than her shrimpy little husband and his girlfriend… whats her name?

Here come the awkward moments… Johnny Depp can make most moments awkward (and yet still so sexy) but this was uber weird.

Whats worse than Adam Levine behind a mic? Jimmy Fallon behind the same mic. I absolutely can not stand either of these guys and NBC thought it would be just fab to stick them on stage together. Jimmy was clearly auditioning for next year’s hosting job and doing what he does best: not be funny.

Here are some of the night’s winners:

Claire Danes and Kate Winslet both picked up awards.

George Clooney with his beautiful girlfriend for the year Stacey Keibler and Michelle Williams

Homeland, a show I LOVE, won for Best TV Drama.

Morgan Freeman was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievment award by Dame Helen Mirren and Sydney Poitier

I must include this little gem from Morgan’s time spent on The Electric Company.

some not so surprising winners: Steven Speilberg and Meryl Street (who at least pretended to be shocked and then admitted she had a speech prepared when she realized she forgot her glasses.)

Lots of great fashion! Lots of semi-good talent! Some deserved awards. Lots of awkward moments and a crap-load of photo-bombing… did anyone else notice? Celebs were creeping into each others camera time all through the night… it was hilarious.

2012 People’s Choice Awards

Tonight were the 2012 People’s Choice Awards. I’ll get to to winners and stuff later,but first: The Red Carpet Fashion.

I like to start things on a positive note, so here are my favorite looks for the night:

Ashley Greene - Peoples Choice Awards. I think Ashley is one of the most beautiful woman in Hollywood right now and I have a total girl crush on her! For me, Miss Greene can usually do no wrong.

Ashley Benson - Peoples Choice Awards. I had to look up who this actress was.Turns out she on the show Pretty Little Liars (and I've been meaning to catch that one... yeah,no). Her dress is adorable and I love the clutch!

Jennifer Lawrence - Peoples Choice Awards. I'm one of those people who can not wait for the release of The Hunger Games! This is my absolutel favorite dress of the evening!!! So Amazing!

Lucy Hale - Peoples Choice Awards. Now, this one I recognized as being from the show Pretty Little Liars from all the melodramatic commercials. I absolutely love this dress. At first, I didn't know if I liked it or not, but, alas, I do!

Kristen Bell - Peoples Choice Awards. Love her. Love this dress.

Kaley Cuoco - Peoples Choice Awards. I have to give credit to the hostess of the even and her adorable red carpet gown!

and now…. The Worsts.

WORST LOOKS: Demi Lavato - Ew. Tip: put away your shoulders... for good. Kat Dennings and Caroline Channing look like real like Broke Girls. Step it up ladies, you're winners tonight.

WORSTS: Allison Hannigan - Why? I love you so much. Busy Philips - I'm not sure why I hate this so much... but I do. Kelly Osbourne - You should know better. Nina Dobrev - you look like an Atlantic City hooker.

and now, a special award. This dress is great. The bold lipstick is great. However, the lame woman in the look just can’t pull it off. Which I’m not surprised about considering she can’t pull of a genuine emotion in front of a camera other than egotism. (I’m guessing that has something to do with genuinely being incredibly egotistical.)

The WORST, BEST look:

Leah Michelle - Peoples Choice Awards. Ugh. She reminds me of every one of the worst-kind-of-obnoxious theatre students i've had to put up with during my years of theatre..... and she looks horrible in that awesome dress.

Ok. So basically, they hand out an award for absolutely, positively anything. Most of the wards were given out ahead of time or something because those bitches from Pretty Little Liars kept popping up on jumbo trons to announce them… and as you have noticed, the Pretty Little Liars were in the audience for the ceremony… whatever.

I have a full list of the winners below, but here are a few of the nights events.

Robert Pattinson accepted for Water for Elephants and the world gasped that he cut his hair without consulting them first. The two broke girls reminded me of two drunk girls who would piss me off at a dorm party. Ginnifer and Jennifer from Once Upon A Time both presented looking like a bad artistic interpretation of the 1960s. And NPH, who-I-love, took home an award too.

So they presented an award for “Best Actor Under 25 or something” and 4 out of the 5 nominees were from (MY FAVORITE) Harry Potter: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson (Girl Crush to the max!), Rupert Grint & Tom Felton. I was like “Woooo-Weeee, we got an H.Pizzle showdown right here!”

and the winner is: some random little chick. – Whaaaaaaat?!

I can’t talk about The 2012 Peoples Choice Awards without mentioning the god awful, disaster of a performance by Demi Lavato. What. The. F*ck do her fans hear/see in her? It was absolutely dreadful. At first I was like “Oh how nice to sound decent with a back track during the hard parts.” BUT THEN it was just ALL terrible!

And the Cankles?! I won’t even address those briquets. (You know, female-to-female respect and all…. )

BUT THEN THEY HANDED HER AN AWARD!!!!! I didn’t know what was going on.

A lot of things happened that I just didn’t understand, but thats what you get from an award show that is primarily voted on by people within the ages 12-17. (Green Lantern as Favorite Superhero this year? Really?)

At least I got to look at these two perfect human beings:

The Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth

Here’s a full list of 2012 Peoples Choice Award Winners.

2011 Grammy Awards

Yesterday, I bought the boyfriend’s Valentine’s Day gifts and while I was out, I saw the cutest white Rampage sunglasses. I picked them up and put them down twice and went home without them. All night and all this morning, all I could think about where those sunglasses… I had to make them mine! So I went back today and bought them! I love them! So retro and so adorable.

White Sunglasses – Rampage
Green Cape Sweater – Old Navy
Skinny Jeans – Old Navy (Diva)
White Los Angeles T-Shirt
Sally Hansen Nail Polish – Jumpin’ Jade

I’m really excited because I recently came across a totally adorable, totally genius way to make your own sunglasses display/organizer and I am excited to make mine and show you all how you can make your own! -Instructions and pics coming soon!

Tonight were the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, and I absolutely love The Grammys! Here’s my breakdown of some of the night’s winners, performances and of course, the red carpet fashion!!

Let’s start with the Red Carpet Fashion! Here are some of my favorites!

Lady Gaga arrived in an egg. She was in a “creative embryonic state”.
Ok, because it’s you, Gaga, I’ll let this go…

This is what she was wearing throughout the event however.
(Including her buns of plastic.)

Amber Riley. This girl seems to always look amazing!
The detailing on the dress was painted on! Love it!

I hate J.Lo. I loved her whole look tonight though.
Mirrored dress, heels and bag! So adorable!

Hayley Williams of Paramore. I don’t like her dress, but her makeup looked fab!
The green eyeshadow really went well with her bright and brazen red hair tone.

Katy Perry looked gorgeous! and her Grandma, Anne, had a bejeweled cane!
The bust of the dress was mirrored like JLo’s get-up! I just Love Katy no matter what.

Mumford & Sons. I really wanted these guys to win Best New Artist.
So adorable, I can’t get enough of these guys!

Kim Kardashian, looking amazing. I loved this dress and her neutral heels.

Keri Hilson looked fabulous! -Pretty Girl!

Kelly Osbourne. Love Love Love her dress!
I’ve always loved Kelly, but recently she has just come into her own as a fashionista!
I can’t get enough Kelly!

Nicki Minaj. Always an interesting look.
Head-to-toe leopard print!

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
Every time the cameras cut to Nicole in the audience, she looked like she was having a ball!
I love Nicole!

Selena Gomez. I love this dress! Love it!
Even though I don’t know much about this Disney Princess.

And Nikki Sixx was there… so here’s a picture because I love him.
I was totally diggin’ his metallic nail polish.

SOME OF THE WORST!!!!!!

Ciara… not sure why she was even there. Gross.

Lea Michelle… Obnoxious as always… and I hate her dress as usual.

Miley Cyrus. If she would just admit she was stoned off her ass when she picked this,
I’d forgive her.

Here are some of the night’s highlights:

The Aretha Franklin tribute that opened the show was lame. The best part was Christina Augilera busting her ass on stage at the end. Problem? There was a wide angle shot at that moment and most viewers missed it.

Best Pop Duo/Group – Train “Hey Soul Sister”

Ricky Martin wore the gayest pants I’ve ever seen.

Lady Gaga performed her new single “Born This Way’…. I love LG, but it sounds an awful lot like Madonna’s “Express Yourself”…. just sayin….

Lenny Kravitz, who is still looking sexy, introduced Muse…
I’ve never liked Muse. I’ve hated hearing them on the radio…
However, this does happen to me from time to time, after I see a band perform,
I sometimes like them….


I now like Muse. Plus, I was totally diggin’ the sparkley jackets!
I also loved the social commentary about rising tuition prices in the UK
and all the monitor and light effects.

The Bruno Mars, B.O.B and Janelle Monae performance was amazing! I want Bruno Mars to rerelease his single in the classic style in which he performed it tonight! loved it!

Usher performed with Justin Beiber and Will Smith’s kid….
What happened to Ludacris and Lil John?
At this rate, I’m guessing he’ll be recording with The Wiggles & Yo Gabba Gabba cast next.

Best Pop Vocal went to Lady Gaga…. Duh.

Mumford & Sons (who I adore!) gave an amazing performance with Avett Brothers and Bob Dylan. The stage looked beautiful, like an old theatre. I loved it.
Bob Dyaln is an american poet and songwriting genius/legend…
sounded like he could use a Ricola… more so than usual.

Katy Perry gave a wonderful performance. It was beautiful and perfect for Valentine’s day.
It was so incredibly sweet, I cried. Pictures from her wedding were being displayed
on her very long train as she was suspended on a sparkley swing.


She jumped off to perform Teenage Dream surrounded by hearts! LOVE KATY!
and I love sparkles!

Rhianna, Eminem, and Dr. Dre’s performance was awesome!
Love Dr. Dre and I’m happy to hear he’s coming back, at least for one album.

Song of The Year went to Lady Antebellum.

Best New Artist – Esperanza Spalding. ??? I’m going to have to check out her album.

Mick Jagger performed….
He didn’t die, so that’s awesome.

Barbara… Barbara… she looked like pudding. gross.
I’m usually eye-to-eye with you gays. I’ve often said I am gay man trapped in a woman’s body… I don’t get it… She’s a legend… ok…

Best Rap Album – “Recovery” Eminem

Ok, Mark Anthony and J.Lo were presenting or announcing someone…
I don’t remember which… all I remember was how awkward it was.
It seemed like he was wasted and she was annoyed because of it.
Then he was annoyed with her bossiness to take over….
Divorce? I’m putting my bet in: Yes.

Arcade Fire performed and then won Album of the Year for “The Suburbs.”
I’m going to have to check them out to… I’ve never really listened to their stuff, but I loved their performance. Reminiscent of The Clash + The Ramones+ The White Stripes.

***The Ramones were also awarded a lifetime achievement award along with
Dolly Parton (who I also love) and others.*** Yay Ramones!

While we are the note of Legendary groups receiving accolade tonight,
The Beatles even won a Grammy! Best Historical Album for the digitally remastered box set. ♥ my Beatles.

And that’s about it.

AMA Red Carpet & Beauty Bargains

Tonight were the American Music Awards… and I can’t resist a Red Carpet… *insert Ginger joke here*… So here are a some of what I thought were the best and worst looks.

Lets just get to it and start with some of The Worst ensembles.

Avril Lavigne (why are you here?),
Nicki Minaj (Ok, we get it. You can be the Rap Gaga),
and Ke$ha (Not that Ke$ha ever dresses well).

… and her makeup was ridiculous… I love that she goes for it though.
In fact, I really really hate to admit it. and I fought it,
but I love Ke$ha… maybe not quite love yet.
-She still dresses horrible-

Oh, what an adorable dress on Miley…
Hang on, did she get a roll of toilet paper stuck in the back of her panties?
No, it’s just an ugly, unnecessary, obnoxious train… on her mini dress.

Some of The Good looks that I liked:

Jenny McCarthy lookin’ fab.
Rhianna, R&B Favorite Female Artist Winner, looked great.
Kelly Osbourne in Dior. Her hair looks kind of stiff though.

I personally, don’t particularly care for Miss Swift,
but her look was fantastic. I love how Mod and Sparkely it all is!
She also won Country Favorite Female Artist.

But my personal pick for Best Dressed is Katy Perry!!!

Her dress is Badgley Mischka and her heels are Brian Atwood.
Her look is all amazing.

The makeup was beautiful too!
I love how cute and feminine Katy looked.
I do ♥ Katy.
(I didn’t want to for so long… but I do.)

Oh, and let me not forget to mention the anticipated NKOTBSB performance.
The New Kids on the Block and The Backstreet Boys teamed up. So. Feel free to watch. It was a medley/remix of multiple songs from both groups. Notes were missed. Breathing was heavy. and whats even more sad, is that NKOTB totally showed up BSB. And they’re way older. I wont get into that pathetic excuse for a dance breakdown… all I’ll say is *NSYNC would have hit that sh*t!

I stopped by Walgreens tonight and ran into a few Beauty Bargains! I was super excited!

  • I picked up a Neutogena Mineral Sheer Concealer Kit.- #05 Fair- I this stuff; it covers so well. It’s light and smooth. The “kit” has two steps. The First is the cream concealer and the Second in the translucent setting powder. -$7.19 SALE
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Clarifying Matte Foundation – #102 Warm Ivory- This foundation has a small amount of salicylic acid and other botanical extracts to help clear skin. It’s a little thick, but the Matte finish is perfect for shows. Usually my stage makeup causes me to breakout after being under the lights, so I hope this will help. -$3.99 SALE
  • Rimmel London Eye Shadow Trio in #407 Dark Angel, soon to be discontinued. I’m a eye shadow addict so I couldn’t resist. -$2.79 SALE
  • I also picked up a bottle of Sinful Colours nail polish. It’s black with blue sparkles called “What’s Your Name”. This brand is always $1.99 at Walgreens. (I ALWAYS use Sally Hansen’s Hard As Nails nail growth base coat and Sally Hansen’s Super Shine Top Coat so I don’t mind spending $2 on a cheap polish… I like having a large variety at home at my disposal.)

Here’s how the polish looks. You can’t really see the blue sparkles. 😦

I also picked up the December issue of InStyle.
I can’t wait to really read through it.
