The 52nd Annual Grammy Awards turned out some killer performances and avant garde get-ups (envision star holding Lady Gaga), but my favorite looks came from “young Hollywood” –whose inky frocks were ultra-glam. Personally, I think the Grammy’s are one of the few Red Carpet events where thigh-skimming mini’s are acceptable. Two of my faves were Lea Michele’s navy Romona Keveza feathery number & Miley Cyrus’ edgy Herve Leger. Although both were totally different in feel, they were equally flawless. Who do I think really stole the show? I think hands-down the number one look of the night came from none other than the 4-time winning Taylor Swift. Her custom Kaufman Franco was AMAAZIINNG. The closest thing I will ever come to such sophisticated blue shimmer is my Chanel blue satin polish–oh well , kudos to her!
