Adele Shuts Down the GRAMMYs Red Carpet in Amazing Green Gown: Pics!
Adele is looking stunning!
The 28-year-old singer hit it out of the park at the 2017 GRAMMYs on Sunday, ditching her usual penchant for black for an eye-catching checkered green gown by Givenchy. The bold style featured studded long sleeves and a pleated skirt, and she paired the show-stopping design with an elegant updo.
Already a 10-time GRAMMY winner, the “Water Under the Bridge” singer is up for five more awards this year including Album of the Year (25), Record of the Year (“Hello”), Song of the Year (“Hello”), Best Pop Solo Performance (“Hello”), and Best Pop Vocal Album (25). She’s also performing at the ceremony, after she suffered technical difficulties last year that left her in tears.
The show’s executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, talked to ET earlier this month about the incident, and said they planned to more than “make it up to her” on Sunday night.
“Last year was so unfortunate and we were so sorry that it happened,” Ehrlich said at an Icons of the Music Industry event at the GRAMMY museum. “With live television, things happen and she was really good about it. It really threw her and I think what hurt us the most was … just watching her face and seeing her trying to get through that with what had happened.”
“We’ve spent a year trying to make it up to her, and I think when you see her on Feb. 12, you’ll know we have done that and more.”
Britney Spears’ Billboard Music Awards look doesn’t leave much to the imagination. The “Toxic” pop star who is being honored with the prestigious Millennium Award in Las Vegas on Sunday night opted to wear head-to-toe black, but it was anything but basic.
Spears, who has historically favored high necks, chose a super-short embellished lace Reem Acra dress with sheer crystal-studded sleeves and a long sheer train. The bodice of her gown was also sheer, showing off her black bra and black thong. A pair of over-the-knee boots by Schutz in a cutout fishnet pattern and Jacob and Co. jewels completed her revealing ensemble.

Formally posed against a richly patterned, painted leather backdrop, the sitter wears an elaborate, Elizabethan-style evening dress with a standing lace collar and quilted, pearl-studded sleeves. Coolly surveying the viewer, she is the ultimate French fashionista—the essence of high-style contemporary chic.
