GRAMMYS SPOTLIGHT


First off, can I say kudos on so many levels to Kanye for his tribute to Donda (late mother for anyone wondering) West. No lie, the emotional rendition rocked my core. And so did every other attendee sobbing and in ovation to Kanye. Also, you clothes fiends (talking to myself too) wasn’t Kanye’s outfit fresh tech-savvy! The glasses alone had me gawking and ogling for a logo.

I normally tune in to pre-coverage on E! to get outfit close-ups. However, family dinner at Grandmas only allowed only me to ketch the last half. Honestly, I didn’t really mind because I was feasting on grandmas' succulent curry chicken.

Ok, back to the GRAMMYS…

So our rehab girl—Amy Winehouse—won golden (5 trophies) last night. Unfortunately because of a late arriving Visa, she had to perform in London. Following her was Kanye West with 4 record players. Ok, I’m stopping the news reporting and more style reviewing.

I only caught a few gents on the pre-show, but saw more shots via-online: WIREIMAGE and Getty.

Here are my thoughts on the GENTS of the night.


Daughtry

I like the fact Daughtry was eclectically fashionable. Each gent had their distinct style offering.




Chris Brown w/ Fergilicious

Chris Brown customized out in a red/white three-piece. I respect the accessory pairing (belt) as well.


Jay-Z

Jay sporting the Oscar-esque look. Jay's definitely in his own style class on the carpet.

Let's not overlook the glistening brooch on his right lapel.


A Mod looking Mark Ronson

Will.I.Am in refine tailored separates. I thought this getup should have been sans aviators.


John Legend


MS R favorite of the night! The underneath arrangement looks like fabric styled into a shirting effect. The lily-white pocket square and slim fitting bachelor vest is a true channeling of ‘The Great Gatsby’! A true style legend indeed on the carpet.



THE BELOW RECEIVED TWO STYLE THUMBS DOWN FROM MS R. YOU CAN CLEARLY IDENTIFTY WHY.

Kanye rocked my core again also. But imagine seeing him in Las Vegas for New Year's Eve, with a drink or two in your system. He took me there. I'm telling you...Kanye's tour is the ISH and so is his tour merchandise. I can't wait to check out his tour later on this year with Rihanna, N.E.R.D and Lupe Fiasco. This will definitely be the tour of the summer.

Where's Ludacris??? He was by far the best dressed male of the night!

To be honest, I thought he was mediocre in the Giorgio Armani suit. I did though, like his aviators.
