Sooooo what was that leather strap holding up Madonna’s butt? Why was Madonna flashing her butt anyway, knowing that she had that weird butt strap on? Oh the Grammy Awards were full of (fashion) surprises like Lady Gaga wearing a totally normal vegetarian dress. While the Grammys aren’t known for being the most fashionable – rock stars opt for leather versus couture…with some exceptions – here are some of the best dressed music makers from last night.

Who was your favourite?

Gwen Stefani in Atelier Versace (possibly the best look of the night)

Ah, award season is in full swing. While the rich and famous pat each other on the back and hand out awards, we watch for our favourites to win and hope to get a glimpse of upcoming fashion. Last night was the Critics’ Choice Award celebrating the best in film. These awards are not televised, but are just as important as the Oscars because the votes are coming from critics themselves.

Luckily there were myriad photographers to capture some fabulous fashion moments.

A big trend is to opt for lighter shades – either completely white or pale grays. We LOVE what Jessica Chastain, Leslie Mann and Marion Cotillard wore.

Emily Blunt wore the next biggest red carpet trend, which is, of course, red. The open shoulders and stunning beadwork make this dress a huge win.

Golden Globe 2015 Fashion Hits

First I want to say that I’m not much into award shows. I watch them for the red carpet and then for the opening monologues. In this case, two of my favourite human women, Amy Poehler and Tiny Fey were stellar as hosts. They didn’t pull any punches, especially where Bill Cosby was concerned, but I digress. As for the fashion portion, the stars did not disappoint…well maybe one or two did, but who cares?

It was hot in Los Angeles and apparently the A.C. wasn’t working at the venue, which is why some of your favourite celebs seemed a little shiny. Despite that, there were some pretty awesome fashion choices. I loved Emma Stone’s Lanvin jumpsuit, she looked so sleek and Sienna Miller’s Miu Miu gown was to die for. Here are some of the best looks of the evening.
