Here's the red carpet at the beginning of the night... The awards are sitting in cases, draperies sweep over the carpet, the walls are lit up with fabric and strings of gold beads. There were big vases of flowers behind the facades that kept getting tipped over. By the way, notice how there's two rows. The foreground is the actual red carpet. The back is where regular folks enter & also where stars can sneak by & avoid questions from the media.
The best detail! Chandeliers that ran the entire length of the carpet. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Grammy Awards.
Check out Kermit the Frog interviewing Wolfgang Puck! Kermie was there for the Craig Ferguson show.
Below is Colbie Caillat. She sings that song Bubbly.... I love the flower in her hair & her little canary yellow Cynthia Vincent dress. Fergie chose canary yellow too, but I didn't get a shot of her or other huge stars. Too busy scoring interviews with them!
I wore a short bright orange DVF... quite apropo with all of the color happening. Welcoming the warmth back to Cali!
The end of the night. We were there til the end. The last crew to leave. It was so much fun.
Best moment: Interviewing Ringo Starr !!! Ahhh!!!!! A BEATLE!
Runner Up: Feist. She was so cute & breezed down the carpet while security was yelling, "The carpet is closed!" I asked her if it was her first Grammy's red carpet. She said yes! I said what's it like for her? Manic! It's unbelievable! Did you see her acapella version of 1,2,3,4? Fab.
