Shoes at the Grammy Awards 2013
Last night saw one of the biggest Awards Season nights of the year unfold on our sets, as lavish red carpet ceremonies kicked off on both sides of the Atlantic. Here in a very wet UK we hosted the BAFTAs, with awards for Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck, Helen Mirren and others, while our US cousins settled in for the Grammy Awards. A few intrepid reporters covered both (including some brave members of our team!) and some amazing gowns were worn.
Sadly for us shoe-gazers there wasn't much going in in the footwear department in the BAFTAs, as it was long gowns a-gogo, with very few shoes on display. But we perked up later on when the Grammys hit out screens, as the dresses were generally a little shorter and more revealing. And the Shoewawa award for best red carpet footwear at the Grammys goes to...
J. Lo, for pulling aside her Anthony Vaccarello dress to show off a pair of absolutely stunning Tom Ford shoes, with a criss-cross strap and gleaming gold ankle cuff - HOT!
OK, so she did have the whole "Angelina Leg" going on just a little bit there (which SURELY must be fully played out by now - or will it make it to the Oscars?) but the shoes are perfectly matched with her completed look, which also includes a beautiful Jimmy Choo clutch bag.
Next up, it's Adele:
The British singer went for a gorgeous red-based floral dress by Valentino that was entirely in its element on the red carpet. She teamed it with a pair of matching pointy-toed high heels, which were the only shoes we think could possibly have done such an outfit justice.
