Grammy Red Carpet Trend: Black

Maybe celebrities are toning things down because of the economy, because standard black was the color of the night. Thankfully, standard did not mean safe for everyone. Jordin Sparks wore a black gown patterned with roses and a fun curlicue bust line. Kudos for supporting a designer from her home state.

Seeing as they were glued to each other the entire night, I can't help but think Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift went shopping together for floor sweeping black gowns. I think Miley did a great job of dressing for her age. I'm sure some people will debate Swift's deep cut, but it works for a 19-year-old. What do you think?
Several women showed up in cocktail-length dresses. British songbird Adele covered hers with an apple green coat while her fellow nominee, Duffy, went for an interesting neckline. Jennifer Hudson wore a daring origami, monochrome number that could have gone horribly wrong, but it managed to walk the line between interesting and understated. That's not easy for supermodels, let alone a woman with a figure fashion forgot.Ever the standout, Janelle Monae arrived in a dapper suit and pompadour, an ensemble that is quickly becoming this a trademark for this overlooked talent. What? You don't know who Janelle Monae is? Get thee to youtube! Her quirky style I will save for another post.
