Wacky, Wondrous Fashion Wins On Grammys Red Carpet

Stop The Presses!

While the Grammys are ostensibly about honoring the greatest musical achievements of the past year, sometimes the real achievements--for better or worse--take place in the hours before the show begins. This year's red carpet fashion was of course no exception--with pop stars like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Britney Spears, and Taylor Swift all turning heads, albeit for very different reasons.

The predictably unpredictable Lady Gaga arrived looking like a space-age Tinkerbell with sunflower-yellow, shoulder-length locks. In her right hand Gaga held a giant, chrome-spiked star. She wore an Armani-designed sheer, pink dress ringed with Saturn-like circles.

Winning the evening's unofficial award for "Best And Craziest Use Of Social Media," singer and songwriter Imogen Heap walked the red carpet in a custom-designed "Twitter Dress." The tea-length garment--which has its own Twitter feed, of course--displays images sent in real-time by fans using the hashtag #twitdress.

According to Heap, the dress was conceived as a way for fans to "accompany [her] on the red carpet."

This isn't Heap's first foray into social media fashion. At the 2007 Grammy Awards, Heap wore a black-and-green bustled dress designed for her by a MySpace fan. Perhaps not coincidentally, 2007's outfit also involved a parasol:
