Specs ‘n Shades Spice Up the Grammys

Music’s biggest night was a star-studded event filled with extravagant fashion, crazy performances and emotional wins. The evening began on a somber note as everyone paid tribute to the untimely death of singing sensation, Whitney Houston, while Jennifer Hudson belted out a heart-felt rendition of “I Will Always Love You.” The rest of the show had popstars tearing up the Grammy’s stage, Adele sweeping up awards and plenty of endearing and awkward acceptance speeches.

While the Grammys are all about the music, it’s also one of the best award shows for daring red carpet looks and awesome eyewear. It was hard to choose our top picks of the night with so many celebs decked out in specs and sunnies, but somehow we managed. Geek chic and retro shapes were all the buzz, especially with the fellas, including L.A. Reid, Skrillex, Darren Criss and Sean Parker. Cut/Copy and The Smeezingtons favored wayfarers and vintage rounds while Katy Perry chose edgy blue shields for her first post-divorce performance.
