LaPazions, I don’t know how many of you felt about last nights show but, for most of us here at Lapazimageing Fashion Forward we weren’t impressed and I can honestly say, the red carpet wasn’t that spectacular via our Entertainment Journalist that covered the show.

I have to start this review off with Madonna who wore a Custom Givenchy. I’m over the antics of certain ones “Madonna” who has reached icon status, feeling the need to give shock and awe. Needless to say there wasn’t shock and awe it was just predictable and tasteless for a middle-aged woman and mother:Madonna in GivenchyI cannot and won’t show you the back of this outfit but, needless to say her butt was exposed and it just was tacky. I think its time for Madonna to grow up, let go of this childish mentality and mature some in her style and look as well as her performances- much like how Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga:Nicki Minaj in Tom FordI know most of you all fell on the floor with that statement regarding Nicki because; most of you know I’m not a fan but, Nicki Minaj has been giving us normal and I think more people are starting to take her a bit more serious in this business. Nicki, decided to go with this deep plunging Tom Ford gown that was body-hugging. Hair and makeup was very tasteful and I would have liked to see just a touch of color on her face but, all and all she looked very nice.

Lady Gaga looked very classy and she is also known for her antics but, she truly has toned it down and brought a great look full-circle- I know this maybe just a moment but, I hope it last longer than the antics that she normally rocks:Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell

Sorry what was it with Iggy Azalea? Iggy just looked one toned from the hair and makeup, which added no warmth and not to be mean but, Snoop is correct she does look like one of the stars from the Movie “White Chic's” Iggy wore Giorgio Armani which complimented her body-type but, I really cannot say anything else:Iggy Azela in Giorgio Armani Iggy Azelea The prom queen came to the red carpet last night- None other than Taylor Swift rocking Elie Saab but, sorry it was a miss and those purple shoes- They went with what exactly? I have to say one thing Taylor is tall, has a great line with that incredibly tiny waistline she could model if she really want to:Taylor Swift in Elie SaabI loved Gwen Stefani in Atelier Versace- this look was pulled right off the runway and Gwen rocked it with ease, and I love that she didn’t go like “Joker” smile and makeup. I mean to me this is what the Grammy’s is about just that style moment you are waiting to see:Gwen Stefani in Atelier VersaceAnother person who tried to pull the look right off the runway is Charli XCX in Moschino. Sorry this was a total miss but, I haven’t really seen her wear anything that would get her on the best dressed list:Charli XCX in MoschinoPause, I love Giambattista Valli Haute Couture but, I just didn’t care for the gown on Rihanna. She looked like a gliding piece of cotton candy. Her hair and makeup was minimal and contrary to everyone else; I just didn’t like the look and she had difficulty moving around:Rihanna in Giambattista ValliOutside of all the controversy from baby-gate to song and spotlight robbing-Beyoncé looked as what her song says Flawless, from the red carpet to her performance-Flawless. Beyoncé went with a specially made Proenza Schouler gown for the red carpet and switched up for a very regal look on stage: Beyonce in Proenza SchoulerBeyonce PerformingKim Kardashian-West allowed her husband once again to dress her and; I loved the robe just not on Kim. I mean if you saw this gown by Jean Paul Gaultier on the runway you would lose your mind!! I mean its heavy and just breathtaking – It is all about the details and it must weigh about 10 to 15 lbs. of crystals and beading:Kim Kardashian West in Jean Paul GaultierBefore we move past Kim- I have to say this didn’t compliment her hourglass body-shape, plus Kim is a very petit woman and I just thought this gown engulfed her and she had such difficulty walking and not exposing all of her business to everyone on the red carpet. I know that seems to be her new thing but, this needed some altering.

Katy Perry is riding very high from her super-bowl performance. Katy took to the red carpet in a Zuhair Murad Haute Couture gown and it fit her beautifully but, I just didn’t like how it photographed. Why? Take a look she looks like she’s Katy Perry’s mother-which I’m sorry that isn’t something you want to accomplish. I also didn’t necessarily care for her look during her performance:Katy Perry in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture

LaPazions, I cannot wait to hear who was your best or worst dressed from Sunday and which performance stood out for you!
