The 56th annual Grammy Awards ceremony on January 26 was an event to remember. Staged at downtown LA’s world-class STAPLES Center, music’s biggest night was hosted for the third time by a super-slick, bow-tied LL Cool J, who warmed up his star-studded audience with jokes about the East Coast’s freezing weather. There were spectacular, high-octane performances from Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Macklemore & Ryan, plus the ‘minor’ singer with the major talent, Lorde, who stole the show with her breakout hit, ‘Royals’. Keeping the red carpet ablaze were winner of Best R&B Album, Alicia Keys, and winner of Best Country Album, Kacey Musgraves. Both looked sensational in Armani Privé dresses embellished with dazzling Swarovski crystals. Keys chose a lean silhouette in electric blue, with a hint of sparkle at the waist to enhance her hourglass figure, while Musgraves glowed in layers of palest pink chiffon shimmering with myriad points of light. This is how the music biz is meant to look on its big night out!
