Makeup hits and misses from the GRAMMYs

With the music community mourning the passing of the legendary Whitney Houston, tonight’s 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards took on an understated vibe, at least on the red carpet. There was some fun to be had with fashion, as always, with stars like Nicki Minaj arriving wearing a Red Riding Hood get-up with a pope on her arm, Fergie in an electric orange, see-through lace Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown, and sexy Rihanna in a custom backless Armani gown inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer in “Scarface” – a personal favorite style memory of mine as well.
