Grammys Fashion Preview

While the Grammys celebrate the best and brightest in the music industry each year, they also serve as major style inspiration. From red carpet fashion hits to chart-topping hair and beauty, Fashion Police expert and Thread host Jay Manuel is bringing us an exclusive sneak peek at the styles to expect at this years' show.

Side braids - If hairstyles were charted this year, they'd be up there with "Call Me Maybe." Keep the look from going little kid and feeling instead more romantic and whimsical with well-executed plaits. Pair the style with vibrant eyes in an icy jewel tone and keep lips neutral for a look that sings.

- A metallic mini in this year's "it" fabric is short and youthful--a statement worth making at the Grammys and beyond! Test drive one with a lower back and flirty pleats and be sure to pile on standout accessories! Metallic heels finish off the look and play up those legs!

Updos - What good is having a fresh face if you can't show it off? Pull hair up and out of those pretty eyes of yours with a soft, simple style. An updo that just pulls back the top section of your hair is always a surefire hit. Get brighter, youthful eyes with plump lashes and a sleek cats eye to finish this look off.

- The hottest stars love this look and so do we! It's a major fashion trend--and for a reason! The slimming shape shows off a tiny waist. Manuel suggests pairing a bright red dress with platform, peeptoe heels and attention-grabbing accessories like cuff bracelets.
