The Grammy Gamut

Los Angeles put on a fashion show of its own over the Grammy weekend, and musicians proved they could shimmy and party with the best of them.

Los Angeles put on a fashion show of its own over the Grammy weekend, and musicians proved they could shimmy and party with the best of them. The green carpet at Staples Center saw fabulous frocks that ran the gamut from long and lean to short and sassy.

On one end of the spectrum, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas stood out in an American Indian-meets-flapper Dolce & Gabbana number she called “Just fun and very me. And good for dancing.” On the other end, Beyoncé Knowles went for Old Hollywood glam in the first dress from her new line, Touch of Couture. But, so as not to disappoint other designers, she went on to change three more times over the course of the evening. “Work it, girl!” chimed in “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” Culture Vulture Jai Rodriguez.

Of course, the slew of parties also had their share of fashion, beginning with the Music Cares gala honoring Sting at Sony Studios on Friday night, followed by the Who’s Who event of the week, Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy bash on Saturday at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

“This is the Oscars of my world,” declared Kelly Osbourne. Mary J. Blige put it more bluntly: “If you’re anybody, this is the party you want to be at.” Clearly, Serena Williams, Naomi Campbell, Carlos Santana, Annie Lennox, Alicia Keys, the Foo Fighters, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson agreed. Newbie Gabrielle Union was positively overwhelmed. “I just stand in the corner and stare,” she whispered.

Post-show, Nikka Costa, Trudie Styler and Sting hit EMI’s party at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where Courtney Love shook things up with a little fashion cattiness. “The designers hate me now so I couldn’t borrow a dress. Valentino said, ‘No way.’ So I’m wearing $32 Contempo Casuals, thank you very much. Fashionistas like it if they don’t know it’s cheap. And it’s real bling.”
