Diddy galloped his way on the carpet in this tailored grey and black look with a bowtie.  The man can dress.  And if he's serious about his girlfriend Cassie's "singing career", wouldn't these types of events--or at least en event this weekend--be the perfect time to bring her around for networking & performances?  Oh wells...

UK import Emeli Sande, who also performed at the event, showed off her drastic weight loss in a black pencil skirt and white sweater.  She looked fab before and just as fab now.

And Elle Varner ricked one of her best looks of the weekend--a button down long sleeved red dress paired with dark red lipstick.  Sexy yet still bright enough for her love of color and prints.

And "Idol Judge" Randy Jackson kicked it with Ciara, Joan and Melissa Rivers, Clive and Ryan Seacrest.  Fab times indeed.

Isn't the gown a little bit

Isn't the gown a little bit too wide for Estelle? And that doesn't even look like Tyra, she needs to quit this way of posing, it's not natural and it's scarry. She can do much better than this. The winner of this red carpetround is Jordin Sparks.

love Nicole Richie's dress

love Nicole Richie's dress and how she styled it. Unfortunately, it looks too big for her :\. She should have had it altered. On another note, the party seems a bit dead... or maybe it's just that black star power doesn't shine so bright anymore :\.

They say that if you can't

They say that if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything. So I will just say that I think Brandy looks GORGEOUS here. Jordin Sparks and Mother Gladys Knight looks beautiful as well. But I wonder what is going on with Babyface? Is he sick, or has he not been sleeping? He usually looks young and fresh, but he looks his age here. I am concerned. I love Babyface.

I love the women who wore the

I love the women who wore the short yet sleek dresses--My favorite is Jill Scott. Dressing this way, I think, is the best way to attend the Grammys, not overdressed: Tyra, Gladys, Adelle.

Estelle: why won't you get a

Estelle: why won't you get a stylist?! Please stop the madness and stay out of Gladys Knight's closet! Such a disappointment. Neyo and Wiz...WOW...

J Huds toes don't know which

J Huds toes don't know which way they want to turn in those shoes, Tyra looks likes a waxed figure, Pharrell's girl friend finally woke from the PJ's she wore out from the other night, CiCi looks happy, that pipe Future is throwing in her must be good, Chrissy Teigen looks like a tranny, Anthony Hamilton wife looks like someone threw gold dust on her face or is that grease, Uncle Tom Randy Jackson is always up front holding on to someone white, I love my Usher but Diddys thigh are too tight in that suit, Jill Scott is pretty but those shoes and hair is a fashion fail, LA Reid and wife belong to my old Potato head set, Brandy tighten up those thighs, Estelle & Akon please don't wear anything black, Gladys looks pretty except for that straw hair cut, Jordan Sparks is giving you head to toe.

Ashanti and Ciara look

Ashanti and Ciara look stunning! I really like the color of ashanti dress, it works great with her skin tone!!!!!!
MsMidwest's picture

JHud, no to that lipstick,

JHud, no to that lipstick, and bang. Ciara is trying to hard with that Beyonce 5 years ago look. Ashanti needs to leave the Malibu Barbie look in the late 70's. Jill's hair is hot! Tyra is to posey! Brandy looks the best I've ever seen her...she's glowing!!! Go Brandy:)

Natasha, I still want to know what the hell is up w/Babyface? L.A. Reidl ooks younger than Babyface. Jeanelle if you want to be taken seriously, stop with the clown outfits. That ish is old.

Tyra looks so f--king stupid.

Tyra looks so f--king stupid. Somebody should've walked by, shined a bright ass light, dead in her retina and/or smacked the shit outta her, just to bring her dumb looking self back to reality. I'm so tired of her and that dumb ass "smizing", I don't know what to do.
