20 Best & Worst Looks At The Grammy’s

Stars made their way down the red carpet for last night’s Grammy Awards. See which looks rocked and which looks hit a sour note.

Best: Taylor Swift
Taylor donned her most mature look on the red carpet, sparkling in a silk Zuhair Murad mermaid gown. “It’s one of my favorite dresses I’ve gotten to wear,” she told Seacrest before the show. “I saw it months ago, and I said ‘We’ve got to save this for the Grammys.'” We can see why!

Worst: Nikki Minaj
Nikki’s goal has to be to appear on every worst dressed list! Her scarlett Versace cape with striking black beading was daring, but that’s the only nicety we’ll give her! With a pope look-alike on her right arm, all we can think is – How sacrilegious can you get? Oh wait, then there was her Grammy performance…

Best: Rihanna
Rihanna’s latest tattoo and recent reports that she went back to Chris Brown had us worried she was headed for a breakdown. If she is, you would never know it by looking at her. She was an absolute knockout in a Giorgio Armani dress she helped design. If this is what going crazy looks like, sign us up!

Warm Up with Spa Night

With temperatures fall-ing, we’ll soon be tempted to avoid all outdoor activities and spend our downtime hibernating under the covers. So, what better time than now to pamper and prep ourselves for the harsher temps ahead? Drown out a case of the Mondays with any or all of these six picks. -Samantha Sutton Read all the customer reviews on mark’s Calm Yourself Hydrating Mask ($9) and you’ll definitely feel the urge to test it for yourself. After using a cleanser, apply the mask to fix dry skin and protect it from future harsh skin-ditions. Bubbles plus a long, warm bath will help you escape the cold temps! Aveeno Stress Relief Foaming Bath ($5.99 on Target.com) will moisturize your skin as you soak, and its calming lavender scent promises to erase any worries. We love The Body Shop! Their products love us back too, especially their Peppermint Cooling Pumice Foot Scrub ($14). The fresh smell combined with miracle-working bits of pumice stone will leave your puppies feeling smoother than ever! One of the hottest nail trends this year is crackle polish, and I personally love it because it’s so low-may (those chips are way less noticeable). Sephora by OPI’s Blasted Nail Colour ($9.50) comes in a variety of different cracked shades that are perfect for an at-home mani/pedi. Celebs swear by Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter ($35) and it’s no wonder! It deeply hydrates dry skin for 24 hours but has a super-light feel—and a great smell! Nothing is more relaxing than chilling in comfy clothes! Stay warm and snug in this Sweater Robe ($44.50) from Victoria’s Secret, paired with these cute Old Navy Sweater Knit Booties(SALE: $19.50) which are perf for a case of cold feet. GIRL TALK TIME: What do you think of these products? What beauty makes you feel like you’re at a spa?

Best Nude Underwear, Bras & Gadgets:
What to Wear Under Sheer & White Clothing

You’ve probably seen sheer clothes everywhere from the runways to the racks of your favorite stores lately. And white separates, of course, are a total summer staple. These sexy and stylish looks are great for hot summer days, but there’s always the problem of what to wear underneath. There are tons of options that claim to be invisible, but how do you know what works, fits, and is still cute? Here’s our round-up of the best no-show underthings to sport under sheer summer clothes or fab white outfits.

Tops:

The Cosabella Nude Cami is fitted and provides the light support of a shelf bra. If you wear a bra underneath, the shelf acts as an extra boost. The no seam tank makes it perfect for wearing for under sheer tops. Our Founder Melissa wears these all summer long under her sheer white tops.

If you need more support or have a fuller figure, this bra from Le Mystere works like a charm; Oprah even loves it! Plus it has a hidden underwire for a seamless look.

The Only Hearts racer back bra is a favorite for under t-shirts. It’s a great choice if you don’t need a lot of support but like to wear a bra.

Every summer wardrobe requires a great strapless bra. The Self Expressions iFit from Target has a perfect strapless at a great price. It even makes a great everyday bra with its removable straps. This one works for larger cup sizes, too, as it stays up and stays put.

Bottoms:

Laperla is known for its gorgeous lacey lingerie but also makes great seamless basics. The Laser-Cut Full Brief is great under a sheer pair of pants or dress because it offers full coverage without any seams.

Nude Spanx have become another fashion staple. Slide them on under a clingy sheer dress for extra coverage and a slimming effect as a bonus!

Commando makes the most seamless underwear ever, end of story. Plus, they stay put underneath even the clingiest dresses or tightest pants. They come in two styles…a wide side band and a thinner one. The wider one is better for dresses and the thinner for wearing under white or pale colored jeans/pants.

As for undies, you can’t beat the Incredible Hiphugger from Victoria’s Secret. They are so soft and comfy, come in great colors, and the stretchy fabric does not show at all under pants or a tight skirt. If you’re not a fan of wearing a thong or going commando but still hate the dreaded Visible Panty Line, you’ll love these.

Low beams” stick on and give you semi-sheer coverage of what you don’t want seen if you choose not to wear a bra.

Frederick’s of Hollywood makes great silicone gel “petals” that offer a little more coverage than the low beams if you’re going to go bra-free. They stick on but can be used up to 25 times.

If your bra isn’t already racerback and you’re going to rock one of this season’s on-trend racerback top or dress, you can use a StrapPerfect to turn your regular bra into a racerback to avoid any out-of-place straps. It’s made of a clear plastic and does not show under anything white.
