Grammy Fashion Winners

Last night’s Grammy Awards were understandably colored by the tragic death of our wonderful, Whitney Houston. Trent will continue to update us on this ongoing, and devastating, story. In the midst of all the darkness, as so many people pointed out on the red carpet and at the awards, there is still the need for lightness and color. What better way to celebrate color than by looking at who wore it best. Any award show is as much about celebrating talent as it is about praising fashion’s finest.

Watch: Whitney Houston’s Final Live Performance Was ‘Jesus Loves Me’

Just two days before her tragic and untimely death yesterday, Whitney Houston made an on stage appearance at a pre-Grammy Awards party in Hollywood, CA where she jumped up to give an impromptu performance of the church hymn Yes, Jesus Loves Me with singer and friend Kelly Price. Little did people in attendance at the time know that it would prove to be Whitney‘s final musical performance ever. Altho the vocals aren’t her best and yes, she appeared to be a bit … off … I find it ironic, touching and a bit sad that Whitney‘s last song performed ever was Jesus Loves Me (which she originally recorded for the soundtrack of The Bodyguard). Click below to watch video of Whitney‘s final performance ever. More »
