Fashion WTF Part 2: Grammy's 2012 - The Bad and The Ugly

From "The Good" to "The Bad and the Ugly" in my Fashion WTF Part 2.

And the winners are...

...Cindy Lauper. The two-time Grammy award winner looked like she was going to a Halloween party, rather than a red carpet event.

Next we have Nicky Minaj. She is a guarantee for fashion gone wrong at every event, but this Versace Red Riding Hood cape and the fake Pope on her arm were really one of my Nicky Minaj highlights.

Whoever styled Fergie this year should be sacked. Showing off too much skin in a too orange Jean Paul Gaultier dress, the singer really did not look flattering at all. 

French-American pop singer Nadeea looked like the black swan in this ensemble.

Robyn's dress paired with these Timbaland platforms was a flashback to the 90's - not in a good way though.

Russian singer Sasha Gradiva wore a not-so-bad pink gown. But why the gun-accessories?!

Grammy's 2012 Fashion - The Good

Last night we have seen celebrities hitting the red carpet again at the 54th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

Over all I would say one could call this year's Grammy's fashion "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly". This post is "The Good", featuring my favorite dresses seen on the red carpet.

Let me start with Katy Perry and this absolutely amazing Elie Saab dress. I told you in one of my previous posts that I am hoping to see one of these dresses at the Oscar's, but I am very happy to see it even before that! The only downside to this outfit is Katy's hair...what's up with the smurf color?!

Another beautiful dress is this Tony Ward gown worn by E! reporter Kelly Osborne. But again...really? The hair?!

Fellow E! reporter and TV celebrity Giuliana Rancic looked "amazeballs" in this pretty LBD paired with Jimmy Choo.

Newly blond Rihanna showed off her amazing body in this custom Giorgio Armani and Jimmy Choo clutch. Was somebody trying to show Chris Brown what he's missing?

Kelly Rowland looked beautiful in this Alberta Ferretti dress.

Another one of my favorite designers, Zuhair Murad, was a quite popular choice at this year's Grammy's. Taylor Swift opted for this nude silk mermaid-gown and looked absolutely stunning.

Also ever-gorgeous actress Kate Beckinsale wore a Zuhair Murad.

Whitney Houston

What a tragic weekend this has been. I could not believe my eyes when I received the message that Whitney Houston passed away at only 48-years old. She was one of the most amazing singers of all times and I still love watching her movie "The Bodyguard". 

Did you know that Whitney also was a very sought-after teenage model before she even signed her first record contract? In fact, she was one of the first African-American models who made it on the cover of "Seventeen" magazine, a truly incredible woman.

Despite all her drug abuse and negative press, Whitney was one of a kind and her voice will be deeply missed. I wish her daughter Bobbi Kristina all the strength she needs in these sad days. 

Whitney, we will always love you, RIP.

Valentine's Day by Victoria's Secret

It's this time of the year again: Valentine's Day. And in true Victoria's Secret fashion, their "Gorgeous" collections stars in a new spot. 

These girls are simply amazing and I always love watching them. Now I just wish there was a Victoria's Secret lingerie store in Dubai...

Teen Kardashians

After all the family drama in the last few weeks, with Kim's divorce and rumors that Khloe is not a Kardashian, it's about time for some positive publicity. I have to say I think Kendall and Kylie, the teenage daughters of Kris and Bruce Jenner, are just adorable. Kendall has already successfully started her model career and has now made it on the cover of Teen Vogue with her sister Kylie, who is just as pretty. Only the headline "Kardashians in Training" is slightly disturbing. Let's hope the two sisters stay as down to earth as they are, the world really doesn't need another generation of Kim Kardashians as far as I'm concerned...

Fairytale by Elie Saab

Living in the Middle East, Elie Saab is obviously quite a big name here. However, the Lebanese designer also became very popular among Hollywood's A-list with his beautiful evening gowns. At this year's Paris Fashion Week he once more proved his sense of making dresses that make women look like a princess from a fairytale. With pastel shades, sparkles and an incredible lightness, there's no doubt at least one of these dresses will make it on the red carpet at this year's Oscar's...

German Label Tigerhill

My last two posts were about fashion from my home country Germany and also this one features a German label: Tigerhill. I was approached by fellow blogger Carolina Ballesteros who is also the model of Tigerhill's latest collection. I loved the pictures on her website and the line itself, but see for yourself:
