2014 Grammy Awards Recap—Best Dressed, Hot Hair and Fresh Face

Hola peeps!  I hope that you had a great weekend, I did despite the snowy weather.  Did you watch the Grammy’s last night with the rest of the world?  Well no fear if you didn’t I am sharing my best dressed, hot hair and fresh face of the night.  So here goes!

BEST DRESSED—I couldn’t decide so it’s a tie between Queen Bey and Chrissy Teigen.

The Carters---Jay in Tom Ford and Bey in Micheal Costello #grammys
After a hot performance with her husband, Mrs Carter stunned the crowd in a white lace dress designed by Project Runway alum Michael Costello.

HOT HAIR—Hands down this goes to Chrisette Michele!

I love that Chrisette Michele strayed from the crowd of bleach blonde bobs and rocked her cropped natural curlz. So chic! She is wearing a printed Etro suit.

Fresh Face—Miss Pretty Katy Perry!

Katy Perry’s fresh face is perfect, she does have on makeup but it is not overly done. It is just the right amount of everything which brings out her gorgeous features (especially those big eyes). I wonder if her pretty hurts? lol She is wearing a tulle dress by Valentino.

There you have it all of my picks!  Now share your thoughts…who got your votes of the night?  Do tell!
