RED CARPET FAB: Rihanna, Kelly, Adele, Taraji, Wiz & Amber & More Hit The 2012 GRAMMYS

 

Rihanna was among the fabulous celebs who was the red carper for tonight's 2012 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in LA.  See fab pics of Alica Keys, Kelly Rowland and others inside.....

Rih brought her daddy and little bro Rajad as her dates for the carpet.

The "Cheers" singer shook things up on the red carpet in this revealing Armani gown that she designed with Mr. Armani himself.  And paired it with black Louboutin pumps, Neil Lane jewelry, and a gold Jimmy Choo clutch.  She said on the red carpet that he's starting to trust her designs more.


 

Rihanna's dress is simple but it simply screams sex! 

She caught up with the "Super Bass" girls Sophia Grace & Rosie on the red carpet too.  Cute!

Nicki Minaj arrived with a Roman Catholic priest in a daring red Atelier Versace Couture "costume" with the Versace Medusa embellished on it. Bishop Long must have been busy.

I love Taraji P. Henson, but she should have chosen a more flattering dress because she can pull off a hot dress.  Her frock is a halter pink and cheetah mermaid gown by Brian Rennie for Basler. Not loving this one though.

Taraji also said she's working on a music project but wants to make sure it's authentic so it won't turn off her fans.

Kelly Rowland and this big hair....which she has been rocking all weekend.  And I love it.  She wore an Alberta Ferreti gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.  One of my fave looks of the night.


 

She posed with DJ Khaled and Rick Ross on the red carpet.

 

Alicia Keys (who did a tribute to Etta James alongside Bonnie Rait) arrived with her husband Swizz Beatz who rocked a bold purple bowtie and velvet sportcoat.  Totally underwhelmed by Alicia's Alexandre Vauthier and Louboutin look.

Ice T was with wife CoCo who revealed SHE has a kissing scene coming up on his "Law And Order" show and it's not with Ice!

John Legend arrive with his fiance Chrissy Teigen.

Common kept it regular with his look.....which is what we love about him. 

Young Money is in the building!

LL Cool J, who is handling hosting duties, looked great.

LL Cool J arrived with his wife Simone.  Simone rocked a gown designed by Misa Hylton and Angela Dean, and her jewelry was from her own Simone Smith line.

Gospel duo Mary Mary rocked sisterly variations of black and silver.

Adele looked stunning (and fit) in this Armani gown. Another one of my simple yet elegant faves of the night. 

Marsha Ambrosius tweeted about Whitney saying, It was a hard day for everyone yesterday. Celebrating and mourning "all at once..." On my way to The Grammys. Surreal. So real!

Wiz Khalifa walked the red carpet with Amber Rose who wore a Versace gown and Christian Louboutin shoes. I want somebody to sneak and check her tag because this looks a but cheap to be Versace. Maybe it's not the dress itself....

Amber added that she wore black and yellow in honor of Wiz--who rocked Dolce & Gabbana and Louboutin shoes.  He jokingly said wearing those shoes makes him feel like it's the first day of high school, and that Amber is the baddest chic at the high school.  He also said they will be engaged soon.....sigh.

Melanie Fiona also rocked black and yellow.  She paired her Luca Luca printed dress with Charles Albert jewelry.  She also picked up the Best Traditional R&B Performance award and Best R&B Sing award (both for her single with Cee-Lo Green “Fool For You”) in the pre-show.

Kirk Franklin received 2 awards--Best Gospel Song and Best Gospel Album for "Hello Fear".

Kirk Franklin looked mighty shiny on the red carpet.  He arrived with wife Tammy Collins.


 

And J. Cole tweeted this uber cute pic of himself with his mom on the red carpet.  I'm not even a huge fan of Mr. Cole but he is looking damn good on this carpet tonight.

Charlie Wilson.....sigh.  He's a legend so if he want to rock an S-curl, Uncle Charlie can do that.

Corrine Bailey Rae went ALL THE WAY with the ruffles in this dress by Christian Siriano.  It's actually a cute fun dress.  Kinda loving it.

Ledisi worked a sliver gown with sequins.

Bruno Mars wore Thom Browne.  And his usual bouffant 'do.

AJ Calloway broke out the white leather loafers.

And Miss Ross walked the red carpet with son Evan.

Shaggy was also there.....we haven't heard from him in a minute.

 

Kelly Price was in a somber mood as she was likely the last person to ever sing with Whitney.

Eric Benet and his gorgeous wife Manuela walked the carpet.

MC Lyte...wow.  When did she get this body?

Ummm... Eric Benet's wife's

Ummm... Eric Benet's wife's name is Manuella Testolini. Yes, she is the 2nd ex-wife of Prince. Mayte Garcia was his 1st ex-wife and as far as i know, is not connected with Eric at all. I hope you correct it out of respect for Manuella.

YES KELLEY IS OBVIOUSLY

YES KELLEY IS OBVIOUSLY GAINING HER WEIGHT NACK ESP IN THE HIPS BUT SHE'S STILL PRETTY. HER DRESS WAS PRETTY TOO. SHE NEEDS TO GET BACK ON HER WORKOUT. NOW TARAJI SHOULD'VE HAD HER DRESS FITTED, SHE MAKES ENOUGH MONEY. AND EVEN THOUGH ITS OBVIOUSLY MADE FOR A TALLER PERSON FITTING WOULD'VE MADE IT LOOK A WHOLE LOT BETTER B/C ITS NOT A UGLY DRESS. NOW KELLY ROWLAND NEVER, EVER NEEDS TO WEAR HER HAIR LIKE THAT AGAIN. SHE HAS A LONG FACE, THAT HAIRSTYLE EMPHASIZES THAT AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY EITHER...........JENNY JONES!!!

Rhianna one word...DAMN

Rhianna one word...DAMN HOT...LOL ok two words :-D. Why must ppl call her ugly and this and that, she SHUT IT DOWN with that damn dress!!! Gorgeous chick!!!!!!!!!!!!!! By far the best red carpet look to me...my personal order would be 1.) Rhi Rhi, 2.) Kelly Rowland and 3.) A. Keys. Sorry that damn Rhi dress was sexy as hell without being too sexy. LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!! Rhi will continue to keep the game on lock. But overall, the actual show was pretty lame...A. Keys and Bonnie did great, C. Brown was cool, Rhianna did her thang, I would have liked to see more of a Whitney tribute but I could understand the last minuteness of the whole thing...I would have loved to see Xtina belt out a Whitney classic, but what ya gonna do...Oh and how can I forget Ms. Adele who stole the show w/her performance and her 6 wins, well deserved, I love her CD 21!!

Shame on you Natasha and

Shame on you Natasha and company for saying that about Shaggy who has a new upcoming album and several leaked songs on the net and in rotation. I swear people do not appreciate artist unless the audience make them popular. Reggae music is only appreciated periodically like Soul music etc but far worst than other categories. Now go do your homeworks .... starting with the title "Sugar Cane".

The men looked better than the chick. Swizz is best dressed. LL did an outstanding job. That prayer was so necessary. He exudes confidence, poise and class. The show however was terrible and bland. I enjoyed Bruno, Katy, Rihanna, Cold Play, Nicki and Chris Brown. The rest were so boring and that includes Adele.

Natasha is a big, petty

Natasha is a big, petty bully! One day i will come back to her. She says it"s cheap like she can ever have what Amber has, money, body and joy in her spirit. It seems Natasha almost cannot help herself. She reminds me of Mr Gold in Once Upon a Time. She flashes her teeth but is full of maggots inside. Yes I will come here and say it over and over again. Sometimes it takes one person to help another see the way.

That color does nothing for Rihanna except wash her out. Her eyes dont even pop. Her natural dark brown hair makes her eyes stand out. She looks just like crack-whore Courtney Love. Not cute at all.

U are on a constant Rihanna

U are on a constant Rihanna bashing, are you jealous. why don't you show your fat stank azz so we can talk about how busted you look. White commentators loved her and crowned her one of the best looks of the night. White people's opinions matter in this world. not trifling , bitter black heifers who are negative about everything. Petty bitch.
