GLAM OR SHAM?: Mary J. Blige at the Grammys





A pop of color goes a long way on the Grammys 2010 red carpet. With Rihanna in white Elie Saab, Beyonce in Stephanie Rolland nude and Ciara in Givenchy black, Mary’s magical magenta Gucci gown brought some life and energy to the mix.


Her bold hue shined against her glowing brown skin and golden hair. Her subtle makeup and dazzling jewelry were the perfect accompaniments (I would’ve chosen a silver clutch over black though). But these aren’t the best parts.


The body-skimming silhouette showed off a toned, curvaceous figure that put even the young celebs to shame (It certainly put me to shame. Heading to the gym after this post).


And the detailed neckline, a theme at the Grammys (see Rihanna’s high neckline and Jennifer Lopez’s halter neckline) gave the gown some interest with its purposefully-placed cut-outs. It highlighted Mary’s pretty cleavage, toned shoulders and muscular arms in a way that was feminine and elegant. Love.


For her performance with David Foster and Andrea Bocelli as a tribute to Haiti, Mary J. Blige wore another stunning hue: a cobalt blue jersey gown with beaded detail from Roberto Cavalli’s Pre-Spring 2010 collection. Color looks good on her.

What do we think of Mary’s boldly hued looks? Glam or a Sham?
