Hot Stuff: Rihanna, Gwyneth Paltrow Cut Fine Figures at the Grammys

Gwyneth Paltrow Grammys

Chris Martin is a lucky man! The Coldplay rocker’s leading ladies — collaborator Rihanna and wife Gwyneth Paltrow — paused for a hot shot for Paltrow’s WhoSay page Sunday night while backstage at the Grammy Awards, showing off their slim figures and similar, slinky gowns. Rihanna worked the room in custom Giorgio Armani (she’s currently a face of the designer’s denim and underwear lines), while Paltrow wowed in a long black number with a solid gold belt.

Later in the night, Rihanna joined Martin and his bandmates for a medley of her “We Found Love” and their “Princess of China” and “Paradise.” Rocking leather shorts and a crop top — plus her new blonde do — the singer got the excitable crowd going. Meanwhile, Paltrow introduced the night’s big winner, Adele, before the beloved Brit took to the stage for a highly praised rendition of “Rolling in the Deep.”

Rihanna and Paltrow were among the night’s few style standouts; Adele and Carrie Underwood were both red carpet winners, too, though many stars failed to impress (or shock) this time around. Though Nicki Minaj’s slightly sacrilegious look drew mild criticism, no one seemed to go too crazy this year — not even Lady Gaga (and that’s saying a lot). Check out our best dressed here, then vote on the night’s biggest risk takers here. Then tell us: What did you think of the 2012 Grammys style?

I read the NYT article ciicitrzing GOOP. The author was chomping at the bit for the opportunity to sneer at Ms. Paltrow about something, anything. For example, before he really got going, Mr. Morris chose to condescend that [at a recent premerier]she posed with the impeccable grace of an actress known for her good upbringing and Upper East Side education at the Spence School. Its supposed to make her sound like a pampered little rich girl, but really, don’t we all hope our kids have a good upbringing and go to fantastic, academically rigorous schools public or private? I saw no affectations in her website, it is clearly Ms. Paltrow imparting information about the idosyncracies that have enlightened her or brought her pleasure. Fairly innocuous stuff to have raised the hackles of so many. They’re just jealous dear. Pay them no mind and keep at it if you are having fun.
