I always enjoy seeing how YAHOO grades celebrities on their fashion. I rarely agree with what they say and I think "Is it me or is it them?". So I'm comparing their grades for last night's Grammys to my own. Read along and let me know what you think.

Beyonce in Michael Costello
Yahoo A+  
Simply Chic B The dress is a work of art but the hair is too beachy and the make up is too heavy.

Madonna in Ralph Lauren 
Yahoo C
Simply Chic B+ I love it. It's so simply chic!The only reason she doesn't get an A is b/c she has gold grills in her mouth :-/

Pharrell in Vivienne Westwood (hat)

Chrissy Teigen in Johanna Johnson
Yahoo A-
Simply Chic D And this how NOT to do metallic folks. I love Chrissy but I hate this dress and her hair. It's so tacky. Not sure what Yahoo was looking at.

Kelly Osbourne in Badgley Mischka
Yahoo B-
Simply Chic C Kelly is part of the Fashion Police and this is NOT fashion. It looks like a costume.

Paula Patton

The Queen in Carmen Marc Valvo
Yahoo A+
Simply Chic A+ Finally Yahoo and I agree. From hair to makeup and outfit choices, the Queen always gets it right. Take a cue from her Paula. 

So what do you think? I'd love to see some of your letter grades for these and other celebrities last night.

I typically go with more conservative, smaller, plain black frames, since I primarily wear my glasses at work, but 2014 seemed like a good year to do something different and I'm glad I did. I love these frames, and ordering/picking the right glasses online was easy breezy! There's a Virtual Try-On System so you can see exactly how you will look in the frames and it was also really helpful to see everyday people, like you and me, wearing FIRMOO glasses all over their site.

FIRMOO gives away a limited number of complimentary frames each day HERE and Simply Chic readers can also use the code IAMBLOGS4 for a $30 voucher towards any of  THESE FRAMES.
