Lingerie Patrol™: The 2019 Grammys

Sunday’s 2019 Grammys red carpet, much like the past year’s musical offerings, gave us plenty to talk about. As usual, attendees used their time on the carpet to showcase their personal style in daring, artsy, and flashy looks.

It’s during awards shows like The Grammys that people watching at home marvel at how some of the celebrities are able to pull off those tricky – and sometimes skimpy (not to mention gravity-defiant) – looks. Gowns with dangerously deep necklines, low backs, off-the-shoulder sleeves, strapless and strappy tops flood the red carpet on that one special night. But what are they wearing underneath to pull the whole look together?

Below, I discuss some of my favorite looks for the night and show you the lingerie that can make it work for you.


Lady Gaga

Sequin Silver Strapless Celine Dress by Hedi Slimane

Gaga went for a bold disco ball glam look in a metallic formfitting silver strapless dress with a sculpted accent and a high slit in the leg. To add to the head-to-toe sparkle, she also wore over 100 carats in diamonds.

  1. Strapless top

  2. Formfitting around certain problem areas like the stomach, hips, rear and thighs

  3. High leg slit

Solutions:

Strapless bra: Wacoal The Red Carpet Strapless Full-Busted Underwire Bra


Shaping thong: Squeem Brazilian Flair High Waist Shaping Thong


Jennifer Lopez

Couture Sleeveless Ralph & Russo Gown

I have mixed feelings about JLo’s fashion choices here. Her dress, as stunning as it was, was quite literally overshadowed by her over-the-top wide brimmed hat. But for the sake of our purposes, let’s focus on her gorgeous dress.

Challenges:

  1. Cut-in sleeveless top

  2. Button-down back

  3. Straight up and down silhouette

This delicate baby pink tulle gown featured lovely tulle fan-like detail in the top, a romantic red sash around the middle, a fitted drop waist, and a full and flowing tulle skirt.

Challenges:

  1. Strapless top

  2. Light nude tulle
