The GRAMMYs: the Most Interesting Choices

Word got out that the GRAMMYs imposed strict wardrobe rules for anyone attending this year's award show, which meant one thing for those of us watching from home: snooze fest.

The main difference between the GRAMMYs and every other award show is that, as one friend put it, "musicians just don't care and express themselves as they see fit." I couldn't agree more, in the history of red carpets the most interesting outfit choices have been brought to us by those attending the show that celebrates music; hence the strict wardrobe policy.

Yes there were some winners on the red carpet this year, ahem Kelly Roland and her amazing bod, but I'd really like to showcase the individuals that I felt took a creative risk.

First up we have Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine in a custom Givenchy creation:

Next we have Rihanna in an Alaia:

Rihanna won with Calvin Harris for Best Short Form Music Video for "We Found Love".

And last but not least, one of the most fitting looks of the night went to Kimbra who wore a Jamie Lee custom gown complete with Miu Miu shoes:

Kimbra won with Gotye for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance

I also want to take a moment to mention FUN. because their ability to match their personality with their wardrobe choices is always spot on, and I'm going to assume it almost unintentional on their part, but they look great doing it.

DEBUT: Rebecca & Fiona - Taken Over (ft. Style of Eye)

This year I was lucky to catch a film at TIFF entitled, Call Girl. The film, awarded with the FIPRESCI (international film critics) Award for Best Film in the Discovery programme, centres around the 1970s prostitution scandal involving the Swedish government.

The film follows two troubled young teen girls who find themselves as somewhat of "It girls" thank to the help of their Madame after they become prostitutes. The girls who are constantly struggling between their morals and self respect, learn just how hard it is to escape their new lives. Luckily, two detectives are hot on the trail of uncovering the elaborate prostitution ring involving some of the most revered government officials, and by the end no one is safe.

What does this have to do with the much anticipated new single from Rebecca & Fiona?

Well, after I watched the video for the first time, posted on the girls' Facebook page, I felt a certain uncanny familiarity wash over me: I knew I had seen it before.

Its rumoured the Swedish singers were inspired by the event, one of the greatest scandals in Swedish history and decided to make it the theme of the video. I'm not sure if Mikael Marcimain, the director of Call Girl has seen the new music video but I personally think both Rebecca and Fiona have made quite the artistic statement with it, once again making them artists to watch for 2013!
