The 2015 Grammys were about as interesting to me as watching paint dry. I like music that isn't usually part of award shows. Bands like Tool, A Perfect Circle, Rammstein, and Metallica don't usually make it up to the big stage. Plus, I am hopelessly stuck in the 1990's as far as music goes. I could listen to Alice In Chains, Sound Garden and Rage Against The Machine all day and be quite content. But I realize that people like popular music and I caught a glimpse of Rihanna and Kanye and Sir Paul McCartney signing on The Grammys and was awestruck at how stunning Rihanna looked. She wore this smart woman's tuxedo with a sparkly diamond choker necklace. The simple smokey eye along with nude lips and glistening skin was all that her look needed to seal the deal. The next morning I heard people joking about what Rihanna wore and I thought, "What's the big deal about a woman wearing a tux?" It wasn't until I saw a picture of Rihanna in her pink Giambattista Valli couture silk and tulle gown that I understood.
So here we are again with Who Wore it Best. I'll let you all vote. Below you can see my suggestions for her simple nude makeup look.
1. Rihanna or Barbie Doll Cake
2. Rihanna or Hostess Sno Balls
3. Rihanna or Pinky the Ghost from Pacman video game
4. Rihanna or Pink Pygmy Puff from Harry Potter
I think Rihanna wore it best, but those Hostess Sno Balls are a pretty close second.
As for her loveliness' makeup...Her makeup was bronzy and shimmery. She wore a shimmery bronze shadow on her eyelids and lots of lengthening mascara. Her skin was highlighted and her lips were kept neutral. She looked simply stunning!

Oh and lest you think I am exclusively making fun of women, I'm not. I have one of the Jonas Brothers here and I believe Pee-Wee Herman wore it better
