Fashion favourites at the GRAMMYs..

Awards season is always one of our favourite times of the year. Not only do we live for scouring the red carpet in search of our favourite dream dresses, but we also love watching all the awards and performances go down. There's just something so magical about an awards show. Last night was the 2014 Grammy Awards and it did not disappoint! Here are a couple of our fashion favourites from the event..

Taylor Swift in Gucci. Golden? Check. Glittering? Check. Absolutely fabulous? Check. A total Taylor Swift gown if we ever saw one! We love the luxe chain mail paired with her casually swept back ponytail almost as much as we love Taylor herself. Don't you just want to be best friends with her?

A double whammy from Miss Swift, this time in Alberta Ferretti. She sure does know how to pick out a pretty gown! She looked stunning in this subtle, yet sparkling gown during her beautiful performance of All Too Well. We really, really love Taylor Swift.

Ariana Grande in Dolce & Gabbana. It may not have been the first frock that would spring to our minds when we think of the Grammys, but we think she looks fantastic. We love how she always keeps it classy and feminine. Also, we have serious hair envy. Look at those luscious locks!

Anna Kendrick in Azzaro. With the plunging neckline and thigh high split, this might be one of the more daring gowns of the evening, but we love it. The delicate beaded detailing on the bodice is just beautiful.

Katy Perry in Valentino. Subtle creamy pink, layer upon on layer of tulle and musical notes.. what's not to love? Check out her dark amethyst earrings.. they're amazing, right? Her make up looks beautiful too, we want that lipstick shade in our lives pronto.

Beyonce in Michael Costello. Wow. Just wow. She's flawless, need we say more? Her performance with Jay Z was incredible, what a way to open the show! We totally want to go and see her live, we bet she puts on one hell of a show. All hail Mrs Carter!

Zendaya in Emanuel Ungaro. It may not be the most traditional of Grammy attire, but there's just something we love about Zendaya's dress. We really, really want a baby blue, polka dot maxi skirt exactly like this for ourselves.

Well that's all of our favourites for this year! Was there anyone you loved who we missed? Roll on the next glitzy award ceremony!
