Award season took another step forward last night with the annual 57th Grammy Awards — yes, that means we’re about to sprinkle your Monday with our favorite rock-n-roll red carpet looks. From sheer sequins to basic black, sexy cutouts to chic pantsuits, the celebs ran the gamut at the music industries biggest night, mostly laying off the bold, bright colors and sticking to shades of black and white. (One notable exception was Rihanna who sported a massive pink dress.) And while we’re going to hold off on offering up Madonna and her derriére (you can find that aplenty on Dr. Google), we are going to give you a peak at what we think were the winners in the style department. Here we go!
Jennifer Hudson, Kristen Chenowith, Pamela Anderson, and now… Jennifer Lawrence! We think it’s now safe to say that this pixie cut craze is officially a trend.

Then line the lips with a neutral or matching shade, and carefully paint on your favorite fuchsia. Blotting will help achieve that of-the-moment ink stamped look that everyone is so wild about — and voila! You’re ready to go.read more
