Grammy Awards: Winners, Best of Fashion and More

Grammy Awards was the event everyone was looking for to check out and now that it finally happened (I’ve been waiting for it for sure), we can gather around for a virtual cup of tea or whatever you wish to have, and break down all that it happened, in Glaibera’s style, of course.

Fashion-wise there has been lots of metallics – even Michelle Obama appeared in a dark sparkling pantsuit, next to J. Lo., Alicia Keys, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Lady Gaga. All ladies seemed to have spoken beforehand since each of them had the spark in the outfit.

Speaking of Gaga, the actress and singer left home loaded with trophies, which was expected to happen, thanks to her collab with Bradley Cooper on the movie ” A Star is Born” where the track “Shallow” touched the right place for many. For her red carpet appearance, the artist looked amazing. No extravagant hairstyle, but a platinum blond with beachy waves look framed her face while rocking a smudgy cat eye look. The dress is silver metallic, with an elongated sort of bow on the side and with a leg view. By far, her look is one the best from Grammy Awards.

The second favorite look is Dua Lipa’s black and white and safety pins dress in which she accepted her Best New Artist Award. And that was only one of the two awards she got in one night, second being for her Electricity track – Best Dance Recording, a win she shares with fellow artist Diplo.

Amongst the guests, I’ve seen my favorite couple, Ashley Simpson and Evan Ross, both looking as dashing as always. BTS members were there too, invited to hand over the Best R&B Album Award. On the stage, before announcing the winner, RM thanked the Army and made the promise to be back. Then H.E.R. came and took her Grammy award. And that’s about it. Well not entirely. Gabriella Wilson, known as H.E.R., also won Best R&B Performance for “Best Part”.

Moving on to performances on stage, I have to fangirl over the handsome latin trio – Ricky Martin, Camila Cabello, and J. Balvin. Dressed and white, yellow and red and rocking the stage. What a treat for their fans!

Other wins:
Kacey Musgraves won album of the year trophy and Best Country Album with “Golden Hour”. A few hours ago had no idea this name even existed, till I had to write this article, and by curiosity clicked on one of her tracks. Instant crush, let me tell you!

American Roots Performance Award and Americana Album Award went to Brandy Carlile with “The Joke” and album “By The Way, I Forgive You“.

dOP is Back With A New Track and It’s all so Lovely

French trio dOP is back with a new track, a sensual story of love, featuring Ukrainian artist Alina Pash, the latter also performing in the MV for this lovely release. The title kind of aligns itself with the month of love, however, I’m sure that’s not the reason dOP came with ‘Stone Love’. The sounds are steady, and a bit mysterious, keeping you guessing about what’s to come next. Did I say it is full of sensuality? I did mention it. But that’s what the band does and that’s why we love them so much. Cause it’s so lovey-dovey and modern and groovy and French.

Released: 11 January

Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross are my favorite celebrity couple, who are not only cute, loving and charming but performing together as well. Ashlee an Evan, as they call the “duet” released not long ago a jazzy kind of vibe album. I succeeded in listening to a couple of the tracks, and “I Do” already won my heart. I’m not gonna say any more names, instead, I let everyone go and have a look. However, I am gonna say that these two lovely singers have been promoting their work for a while now. Latest appearance happened on the stage of “Mercedes in the Morning’s Not So Silent Night 2018” show on December 16. I would love going to one of their concerts. I get a warm fuzzy feeling from watching them on stage, standing next to each other. On top of that, the clothes they wear are awesome. For this appearance, Ashlee went for a royal green top, with grandiose sleeves with ruffles, leather-like tight pants, and see-through booties. Evan joined the vibe, by wearing a casual suit with brown boots.

December 14 -15 Celebrity Fashion

Diane Kruger took her velvet blazer dress to ACRIA’s 22nd annual holiday dinner. The actress went for an all-black outfit, topped with a single white stripe at the sleeves and on her long fabric belt. She then added more light, by carrying with her a black clutch completely studded with pearls. Love it!

Singer Lena, who not long ago made my day by attending Chanel’s Metiers D’Art fashion show, as a front row face, was seen rocking just the other day a Kim Kardashian kind of look, with black top, track pants and boots, while performing live on stage at Huxleys, in Berlin. I like this approach on her.

I’m glad seeing Kylie Minogue in a different place other than on stage (not that I’m complaining). It happened in Melbourne at the premiere of her latest project, comedy movie ‘Swinging Safari’. Her look for the event is relaxed, trendy and fresh, with a good conversation between shoes and dress.

Singer and actress Maite Peroni made a delightful appearance on the red carpet while attending the premiere of musical drama ‘The Greatest Showman’, in Mexico City. Wouldn’t call myself exactly the biggest fan of her dress, but I will pretend I’m ok with it just because I like her. Rebelde anyone?

Francia Raisa’s flared and extraordinaire pants have made my day, cause they are just cool. Love how the waist is built, love the stripes, the colors, the shape and even the length. She wore them with a cropped top, just simple one, and some pretty red strappy heels, the classic style. And that’s how it’s done.

Where: the Premiere Of ABC’s ‘Grown-ish’

Although I’m not into these type of showy dresses, I’m gonna go and make a second exception for today, since Brittany Snow’s dress has those playful flowers placed nicely as a cover-up of some sort. It is such an innocent element, but it does so much to this dress, so much so that I will say yes to the dress. And besides, Britanny Snow is quite the charmer. In the end, it all works together well.

MAMA 2017 Awards – Winners and More

MAMA Awards 2017 took place yesterday in Hong Kong, and boy, was it thrilling! I’ve been all embraced with my laptop, surfing from one page to another just to keep up with everything that was happening, from the red carpet arrivals to the last award on stage. Trust me, no other soap opera and especially award shows, none have made my pink heart beat as fast as it did yesterday.

This edition has felt like a change of scene, almost as if the queens and kings that ruled the Mnet Asian Music Awards stage years in a row were this time nowhere in sight. Another major change is MAMA‘s decision to host this year’s edition in three separate locations: Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam, Osaka – Japan and Hong Kong. Artists such as Twice, Wanna One, Exo-CBX and few other more have been awarded in Japan.

Fashion-wise, I loved everything about Song Ji-hyo’s look, the actress and TV host showing off her sophisticated side in a slight cut-out dress, matched by perfect makeup and straight hair.

As for who won what, the awards brought sometimes surprised, overwhelmed faces on stage, partially thanks to the controversy happening prior to the event regarding the votes. Both Exo and BTS, the two main male groups preferred by fans for the big awards, received, let’s say, equal gratification for their hard work, with Exo winning the album of the year award and BTS receiving just right after their glorious performance, full of sweat and out of breath, their artist of the year award.

Other winners:
Twice won Song Of The Year award for “Signal”.
New Asian Artist award went to NCT 127.
The very lovely duo band Bolbbalgan4 won Best Group Vocal Performance.
Best Female Group went to Red Velvet.

There are obviously way more awards, I’m just mentioning the ones that caught my attention. It could also be that I’m in a hurry to finish this so I can search through my fridge for something tasty.

Celebrity Fashion Before The Weekend Begins

Ciara’s impressive ponytail she wore on the red carpet at the Billboard Women In Music 2017 may trick you into believing you’re watching a Leo woman, but her beautiful face betrays her Scorpio astrological sign. As for her dress, the singer chose an off-shoulder gown dress with an impressive back, all white topped with a black skirt.

Mia Moretti attended the LAND of distraction Launch Event, in LA, wearing a see-through black dress on top of her wide leg jeans. She accentuated her waist with a black belt – that’s pretty much all that she did to her outfit. Simple and effective. Love it!

Celebrity stylist Johnny Wujek brought his support and coolness to Christian Siriano’s new book ‘Dresses To Dream About’ launch party. What makes a huge difference in his outfit is the pink rose and vintage handkerchief he wore in his jacket’s chest pocket, next to all the other boyish elements. I kind of wish his jeans were longer but other than that his outfit is a hit.

I love how Andrea Riseborough changed the destiny of her outfit by adding a pair of metallic silver boots to her baby blue soft dress. Even her very blond hair fits in wonderfully in the whole arrangement. Honestly, it couldn’t have been better. She wore this outfit in LA, at Roksanda Ilincic’s dinner, hosted by Nordstrom and Olivia Kim.

I’ve been missing seeing Scarlett Johansson, and there she is, attending the American Museum Of Natural History’s 2017 Museum Gala, wearing red and looking marvelous. And now I can finally go on with my life.

AMAs 2017 Red Carpet – Diana Ross, BTS, Pink and More

Embed from Getty Images

BTS’s Army’s wishes had been granted yesterday, when the 7 members – Jin, Rap Monster, Jungkook, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Suga arrived on the red carpet, ahead of their performance for AMAs 2017. Perfectly styled for their appearance and posing together, I think this event, highly public, was way easier for them to handle than their Billboard Awards show-up. This time around, all the 7 members looked more relaxed and a tiny bit more at ease with their exciting task.

More than one person appearance seemed to be the norm on the red carpet, Diana Ross’s supporting large family being the best example to mention. The artist rocked an outfit larger than life and an even bigger hat, metaphorically speaking, really in tune with the award she was there to receive – A lifetime achievement award and a tribute video doesn’t sound bad at all. She rocked the stage as well, with the help of her nephews, and by now nobody truly knows which side was the real star – the singer or her dapper grandkids.

Fashion wise I have to say I loved Pink’s grapefruit pink tulle gown, playfully touched by a few floral appliqués on the corset of the dress. A second favorite is a piece worn by Issues singer, beautiful Julia Michaels. Similar to Pink’s dress, but oh, so very different in the vibe it gives. I love the creative approach the designer took in filling the space inside the cut-out portion of the dress, which happens to be right in the middle of the chest. EDM duo group, Chainsmokers, took their red carpet looks to another level, both of them sporting well-fitted suits, with Alex rocking the tartan and Andrew the black.

Last but not least, my heart skipped a beat, or more, at the sight of Jessie James pregnant silhouette. Body goals, that’s what she inspires, among other good things, such as good hair nice makeup, great pose.

Red Carpet Impressions on 18th Latin Annual Grammy Awards

This time I was beforehand informed on the date The 18th Latin Annual Grammy Awards is going to take place, and finally, it has yesterday. I’m here to gush a bit about what happened on the red carpet and I’ll start off by complimenting this guy’s outfit. Hat and jacket matching nicely and I love how he used the jewelry.

Singer Mon Laferte styled her gorgeous hair in perfect waves, but more her makeup with the whole upper eyelid covered in brown-orange eyeshadow sets her apart from everyone else. She’s also the very first Chilean female artist to win a Grammy Award. Her song “Amárrame” made to the top of the best alternative Latin song. Congratulations!

Finally, it’s Maluma baby. Can we all agree on how handsome is this man? I think we can. Outfit: of course is on point. Small side note: hair is a bit funny styled at the top. Or perhaps I am the one out of sink with what’s happening trend-wise on the men’s hairstyle department. Other than that, Maluma is looking fabulous.

Artist Diplo and Dj Steve Aoki joined in for the fun. And J Balvin showed up with neon green hair and orange sunglasses. Whatever floats your boat, J Balvin!

OMG! I’m having a crush on ‘the one in the middle’. The band is named CNCO.

One of the best dresses seen on the red carpet, if not the very best, is the one Camila Cabello choose for the Latin Grammys. Delicate, girly and soft. Love it!

Actress Emeraude Toubia looked stylish and ready for the party in a sequin blue dress.

Yuksek Has Done it Again – New Remix Out

You might know by now how much French Dj Yuksek loves doing remixes, and that has been proven many times. Besides bringing to the world his own tracks in which he invests a lot of his time – his latest album took him about two years to full completion, the DJ gives his own flavor to quality tracks of various artists aligned with the vibe. Same happened today, when a new remix was released, this time on one of the tracks from Bertrand Burgalat, French producer & songwriter. This new remix hasn’t touched much from Burgalat’s style, keeping the beauty of the original track, but making it sound more modern and energized.

Armani Upgrades Men’s Collection To Millennials Standards for SS 2018 Season

For Milan Men’s Fashion Week Armani had assembled a much younger version of its craft to be presented on the runway for spring/summer 2018 on June 17. The key word of its entire collection is millennial, and the designer made sure that the message is loud and clear, yet making smart choices that align to what Armani brand represents.

Choosing to collaborate with ‘Treat You better’ singer Shawn Mendes for modeling the new Armani watch has not only strengthened the bond between brand and fans but brought a wave of new followers on the table. And let’s face it, Mendes does seem to be a great brand ambassador, even though he’s young. The singer appeared at the end of the show and walked the runway after a brief video preview of Armani’s new smart watch featuring Mendes.

On collection, the designer did very well in aligning the Armani image to the millennial standards by creating pants with a neutral appearance. The highlights of the collection are the dress pants and all Japanese influenced pieces, such as kimono jackets and pants with a skirt on the back.

Artist Cro Teases Fans With Intriguing Track From Upcoming Album

German artist Cro, singer of raop, as himself is saying, has released at the beginning of June a Cro music track from the upcoming album, with an official date release for 08.09.2017. Pretty clear, right? Not to me. The album title does not disappoint, being millennial appropriate, cool and rebellious but touched by mannerism. And if I indeed have made you curious, it only means that it’s time to beat the drums and announce the “Fake You” title. You have to love this artist for his style.

For the teaser track called “Baum”, translated tree, Cro has spoiled its fans with lots of dope video effects, compiled into a slightly suggestive music video. The lyrics and the story have raised speculations amongst the fans of the artist. Known to be highly private of his personal life and possessive of his panda mask public persona, Cro seems to have had a change of mind, or at least that’s what the music video would suggest. Or not. The point is, Cro seems to enjoy giving its artistry an intriguing storyline but at the same time, keeping the good vibes.

The artist contributed with soundtrack In Love (feat. Teesy) to the 2016 movie Unsere Zeit Ist Jetzt, in which he played as himself. This new album and recent track “Baum” are the perfect gifts the artist has for 2017 to give to its fans.

UPDATE: Cro seems to have had a change of mind regarding the title of his latest album and changed it from ‘Fake You’ to a more polite sounding “Tru”. No matter the name he chooses, the music he has created is undoubtedly great. So “Tru” it is.
