What Was She Thinking? Imogen Heap at the Grammys

02/11/2007 at 09:24 PM ET

For those of us who miss seeing Bjork and her head-scratcher outfits on the red carpet, Imogen Heap is a fresh breath of out-there fashion. Nominated for best new artist, the British singer arrived in look more remiscent of the Lady of the Lake than an songbird on the rise. From the foliage in her hair to the lily pads on the dress to the parasol to, well, all of it — this is a look designed to go down in Grammys Worst Dressed history! Tell us: What do you think of her look?

She looks like Boy George.

If you are a fan of Imogen you totally get this. This is her – and I think being on the worst dressed lists wouldnt mean a thing to her. If you’ve seen her show, her wadrobe is like an extension of her performance. I say well done for not worrying about the critics. And she’s not a “new” artist anyway.

its certainly……different…..in a bad way

i think that i would have a little less respect for her if she had shown up in an Dolce & Gabbana gown. her genius is in her uniqueness and in her music. she shouldn’t have to dress to impress the critics and i’m PROUD of her because she didn’t.

She’s British, need I say more?

I’ve never heard of Imogen Heap’s music. Last night from her walking on the red carpet and being nominated for Best New Artist, I was like “who the heck is that?” I can’t remember who she was sitting behind, but I kept seeing her, and I was like “wow, what the heck is going on with her hair.” If I had to pick between Bjork and Imogen Heap having the worst style…I’ll give it to Bjork. I mean, who shows up at the Oscars in a goose dress? That was just ridiculous. For the Grammy’s it would have been nothing. Imogen looked more decent then Bjork did, that’s for sure.

That’s just what she does though! She always dresses cooky (saw her in concert, I have a pic of her on my myspace if you want proof, http://www.myspace.com/makeyourself5.) I think she dresses a little odd, but where she lacks in fashion sense she makes up for in talent! Besides, she gives us something to talk about.

“If you were a fan of IH’s before last night you know that she always dresses like this. While it is unconventional, at lease she is staying true to herself.”

“Imogen is fantastic. She is NOT anti-Grammys, in fact she’s been blogging for a while HOW EXCITED she is to attend and how GRATEFUL she is that she’s nominated. She has this outfit specially made for her to represent her as an artist and her personal UNIQUE style, at least she wasnt one of the hundred artist sheep who arrived in metalic something or other.
She’s beautiful and talented, she deserved to win as well.”

I can only agree with the above stated. Imogen Heap is a wonderful, wonderful artist, who has always dressed a bit crazy, but I love that about her. At least she stays true to herself, unlike so many others out there.

Oh, and the dress was made by a FAN! How fantastic is that?!

jap on

best new artist?!?! imogen heap??? so not NEW. she’s awesome, but seriously, she’s not new. just cuz she hasn’t been in “the scene” for years, she’s suddenly new again…weird.
