2012 Grammy red carpet fashion breakdown

Adele definitely owned the evening last night at the 2012 Grammy awards, taking home a statue for every single category she was nominated in and making a virtuoso comeback with her pitch-perfect rendition of her ubiquitous 2011 hit "Rolling in the Deep"--but we had some pretty awesome appearances by a few of our favorite Latin stars last night too!

First up has to be Fergie, who managed to steal everyone's attention when she sauntered down the red carpet in her orange lace, and most-importantly, completely sheer Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture gown. Celebs know that they can be a bit more creative with their fashion on the Grammy red carpet and Fergie definitely embraced the spirit of adventure with her style choice!


Esperanza Spalding also rocked the red carpet in a gorgeous water-color inspired floor-length gown, but what I'm obsessed with is her amazing hairstyle! The jazz musician looked dropped-dead gorgeous as did legendary percussionist Sheila E. who showed everyone that she definitely still has it in a white-hot short pantsuit.

The men also brought some dapper swagger to the red carpet. Bruno Mars kicked off the show, but also upped the fashion ante for the guys in a sleek Tom Brown suit. Producer/rapper Swizz Beatz got funky with a purple velvet blazer--but Beatz' best accessory was his gorgeous wife Alicia Keys. Marc Anthony, Mario Lopez, and Victor Cruz also cleaned up very nicely--but Cruz got most of the shine thanks to his prime seating location right behind the night's big winner, Adele!

What did you think about Fergie's sheer dress? Who was the best dressed of the night for you?
