Wacky Fashion: Why We Love the Grammys

02/11/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Sure, the Oscars may have the glamour, and the VMAs may have the cool quotient — but we love the Grammys because it’s the award ceremony that always has the wackiest fashion choices. From Mary J. Blige‘s Big-Bird inspired Gucci ensemble to Teri Hatcher‘s I-see-London-I-see-France dress of last year, someone always turns up in an outfit that tests the boundaries of good taste and tickles our fashion funny bone. We can’t wait for tonight’s show to see who will crash and burn on the red carpet this year (and rock out onstage too!). Tell us: Who are you looking forward to seeing at the Grammys?

Click here to see the worst Grammy fashion from the past decade.

they call me mellow-yellow! it’s too much and those green shoes don’t go at all and how bizarre.

I really like the Petro Zillia dress Joss Stone wore! That’s not a good picture of it but it’s young and fun. Oh my god though, what was Britney Spears wearing and what is up with that face she’s pulling? Weird.

I love Mary but WHAT IS SHE WEARING?!?!?!?!?! NASTY!

Tayme on

The dress is more than enough yellow, why did she wear that yellow coat with it? Oh jeez. I love Mary J. Blige’s voice regardless of how she dresses.

I’m looking forward to seeing the performances and so forth and to see who is wearing what. Hopefully you’ll share them on the board, so we can give our opinion on what we thought of some of their dress atire.

She looks like hip hop Big Bird!!!! Hideous!

I was NOT a fan of the outfits at this year’s Grammys! Everything was either totally wacky or just blah boring (another metallic minidress? yawn!). There weren’t any outfits that I was actually excited about, but then again, there are far fewer A-list women at the Grammys than at the Oscars and Emmys.

I came up with my own list of best and worst dressed (though I changed it to “acceptably dressed” and “downright ugly”), which you can check out here:


L, K. on

I agree with the above. But, I did like her in Ghost Whisperer on Friday.

lorelay on

C on

This outfit even makes her skin appear yellow!

Marissa!!!!! on

is it just me or does she look like a cross between a banana and big bird!

Dawn on

She Killed Big Bird for that Jacket.

Dawnie on

Hey Big Bird! Where’s Oscar and friends? did ya quit Sesame Street or are you taking a break?

Anybody on

Does she have any sense of fashion?

Cherany on

I’m probably going to be the only one, but I love this! I esp. want the coat!

Niclee on

I love the dress and handbag!!! It’s over-done with the bright fur. Take off the coat and show your style!!!

XcrazyforleoX on

LMAO wtf? is she wearing… all she needs is like yellow contacts and yellow mascara….

aisha on

girl how do u go out looking like a mellow yellow

deb on

OK! OK! OK! So yellow might not be her best color – the outfit is cute and she STILL looks amazing. On second thought, it isn’t the color of her dress so much as it is the background Miss Mary is standing in front of.

Octavia on

yall need to leave mary alone and let her do her so fall back. PS stop the hating thats how people die these days not saying that mary is a mean person and is going to kill yall but if u anit got nothin nice to type dont type at all I love her and her music so what and I love that dress mary!!!



phyllis johnson on

Her hair cut was the bomb(yes it’s weave , so what)and her complection was radiant. She still looked fierce!!!! You go mary!Your numero uno fan!

phyllis johnson on

So what! Mary was a little over the top ! That is why she is the diva she is! Everyone is a little afraid of the color yellow. However, her hair cut was nice ( so what it’s a weave, but it’s hot!) and her skin looked radiant. She looked fiecre! You keep the damn thing moving Mary! Love ya, your numero uno fan…

phyllis johnson on

By the way did you guys see the kiss “sting” planted on mary? He looked like he was taking a deep breath of fresh air. go to her web sight to the pictures and you’ll see it there. No mistakes allowed! Now, hate on dat!
