Another weekend, another glamorous Red Carpet! Aren’t you the least curious to see who was wearing what? I’ll give you my favorite, right upfront, not saving the best for last!
Katy Perry in Valentino Couture White Dress With Musical Notes
Is there something ever-more-suitable for music’s biggest night than a dress with musical notes on? Well, they’re from Verdi’s Traviata, granted, not any of Katy Perry’s bubblegum pop thingies, but still, perfect for the night!
The dress was hot off of the catwalk as it made its debut during the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week just a couple of days ago, during the Valentino Spring 2014 Couture show.

Highly unusual for Katy, who’s a self-confessed nail art junkie, she didn’t wear anything spectacular on her nails tonight. Katy Perry’s 2014 Grammy Awards nails were natural, rather short, painted with a simple soft pink, the French Manicure kind. The only extravagant thing about her Grammy look tonight was the braided bun she was wearing on top of her head.
A closer inspection would lead us to suspect that Miss Perry did her own nails: just look at the messy cuticles – no nail professional would have a client walk out of an appointment with uncleaned cuticles! This makes me think that Katy didn’t have time for a proper fancy manicure!
Kelly Osbourne Badgley Mischka Black Dress, black and gold nails
Although the dress was pretty simple, accented with bejeweled shoulder pads and featuring a dramatic draped back, Kelly Osbourne brought some serious glam on the 2014 Grammy Awards Red Carpet with her black nails! Oh, and her hair matches the shoulder pads crystals!
The cross on Kelly’s back is her father’s, Ozzy Osbourne, while the rings on her fingers are from Loree Rodkin, a Hollywood favorite. But did you notice the golden details on her nails? There were some gold stripes but also tiny golden Grammy Awards! Isn’t that lovely? Matching the nails to the festive occasion?
Madonna Ralph Lauren Black Tuxedo, glitter french nails
We’ve known Madonna all her life, and she’s always been inspired by her men. This time is no different as the star’s outfit was inspired by her date: her 8yo son, David. Madonna wore a black tuxedo from the designer’s Spring Summer 2014 collection.
Her nails and jewelry choices were rather interesting: her Madgesty’s fashion rules are her own only as although she was wearing a classic French manicure with delicate glittered tips, she went for a gansta-like style finish with a cane, ME initials rings and golden grills, not to mention the gipsy-esque hat… A bit over the top, but that’s how we love Madonna, don’t we?
Rita Ora Lanvin Green Dress, superheroes gradient nails
If you’ve tried hard to find a funny manicure on the 2014 Grammy Awards Red Carpet and you failed it’s that you haven’t seen Rita Ora’s nails! She didn’t say much about them, but I’m guessing that it’s because she didn’t find the passionate interviewer to ask the right mani questions!
Wearing a snake-skin like shimmery dress from Alber Elbaz’ Spring 2014 collection for Lanvin with matching sandals (and Red Carpet matching toenails), Rita looked fabulous!
Paris Hilton in white Haus of Milani dress, gold glitter nails
It’s been a while since we made any (in)significant mention about Paris Hilton. She walked the Red Carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards wearing a white dress from Haus of Milani with a punk-ish hairdo and gold glitter short nails.
Anna Kendrick Azzaro soft grey dress, grey nails
Matching the color of her Azzaro dress, Anna Kendrick wore equally grey French nails with tips in a matching shade of glitter. I had no particular fondness towards her pointy metallic shoes and I think they were a rather uninspired choice.
Pregnant Ciara gold sequins dress, white nails
Now that’s some glammy mommy to be! Wearing a gold sequined custom dress from Emilio Pucci and a loose faux bob, Ciara matched her look with pointy white nails (for fashion reasons unknown). Glowy and beautiful, Ciara looked fairly proud and affectionate with her burgeoning curves of expecting mother in the early stages of pregnancy.
Beyonce white lace Michael Costello dress, burgundy nails
What a lovely sight for sorrowed eyes! Beyonce in her mermaid-esque sheer white lace dress designed by Michael Costello and ombre hair in a tousled bob! She matched her lipstick and her nails polish in the same rich burgundy flattering her complexion. She kept this beauty look for her stage performance as well, where she was ‘Drunk in Love’ with her husband, Jay Z.
Beyonce took the stage in Nichole de Carle leotard with the crystal tights from Saint Laurent everyone is so fancy about, finishing the look with Stuart Weitzman shoes and La Perla collar. (am I the only one who sees her nails in an iridescent burgundy? As if they were duo-chromes?)
Anna Faris although not wearing significantly glamorous nails choose to match her earrings with an Indian-like jewelry wrapped around her wrist and finger, assorted to her navy blue dress.
