There are two things you can always rely on when it comes to the Grammy Awards: Elton John will invariably show up to try to steal attention away from whichever artist is most controversial and talked about that year, and fashion on the red carpet will be hideous.
This year was no different. Now that the actual awards have been handed out (and you’ve already forgotten who won), let’s get down to the real competition:
Who wore the ugliest dress to the Grammy Awards? Here are the contenders, in no particular order:
Katy Perry, who glued pasties to Grandma’s panty hose
Beyonce, who seems unable to move in this ancient Egyptian body bag
Rihanna, who killed a feather boa then attached it to a wedding dress
Jennifer Hudson’s off-center waitress’s apron and Moe haircut
Taylor Swift and her square cleavage
Jennifer Lopez, who seems to have accidentally tucked the table runner into her mini skirt
Or Britney Spears in a 1940s swim suit, fishnet body stocking (complete with Britney-esque rips in the front), and fishnet stockings, in case you didn’t get enough sexy from the calves up
Note: Lady Gaga gets a pass. I think we all know what her deal is, and it ain’t pretty, pretty dresses.
So fellow fashion snarkers: who wore the ugliest dress to the Grammy Awards? Those who know me might guess my answer is Britney Spears, but you’re wrong (though just barely). I choose Beyonce. She always looks kind of plastic-y and lifeless to me, and this dress emphasizes that to the extreme.
Sorry, B. I’m afraid not even copious amounts of side boob can save this mess.
