Here Are The Grammy’s Best And Most Boring Fashion Moments

Last night was “Music’s Biggest Night!” —aka. the Grammys. All the pop stars came out to perform and take home awards for the music we’ve been listening on repeat over the last year. And while this night isn’t quite as elegant and frothy as the Oscars, Grammy attendees still serve fancy, theatrical and tbh, kind of whacky fashion. The award ceremony allows for an “Anything Goes” policy when it comes to dressing up —so we rounded up the most exciting, and most yawn-inducing fashion moments of the night.  

Best: Billy Porter’s shady fringe

Porter, who hands down won the award for just the most, served us a whole moment on the red carpet when the rhinestones that hung from his hat started to open up, revealing the actor’s face.“Get on my nerves, and the curtain closes!” Billy Porter explained of the motorized fringe curtain lining his glitter-encrusted wide-brimmed hat. Turns out the look was a moment of appreciation for the other Billie [Eilish]. He once told his stylist Sammy Ratelle that he loved Eilish’s face nets. So here it is; face nets, but make it Billy Porter. 

Best: Demi Lovato

Among the many performances at the Grammys last night, perhaps one of the most anticipated was that of Demi Lovato. After a year and a half since her overdose, Demi returned to the stage singing a new song that brought the audience to tears—and to their feet for a standing ovation. The singer stood onstage in a white gown that featured a studded corset belt and puffy floor-length skirt. The look was simple, angelic and simply perfect. The Christian Siriano gown was a perfect way to highlight Demi’s return to the stage. 

Best: Alicia Keys’ shimmering armor

Alicia Keys started the night by paying respect to the late NBA star, Kobe Bryant, who sadly passed away yesterday during a helicopter crash. “To be honest with you, we’re all feeling crazy sadness right now,” said the host for the night. “We’re literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built.” Boyz II Men joined Keys on stage to sing “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye to Yesterday”. Standing in the middle of the trio, Keys looked statuesque in a shimmering Atelier Versace gown that accentuated her figure. 

Best: Lizzo’s Old Hollywood style

Lizzo’s look for the Grammys last night was glam and fabulous like the performer herself. The  Old Hollywood silhouette of her Atelier Versace gown was brought back straight to modern day with glittery embellishments, extra AF nails and an actual fur stole. No tiny handbag on sight this time but I mean… the Jessica Rabbit realness was next level. 

Best: Cardi B serving #bodyconfidence

Cardi had us all fooled thinking she wouldn’t be attending the award show after she was nowhere to be seen during the red carpet. But thankfully, our Latina queen showed up and showed out in a dreamy see-through Mugler look. The nude, sheer gown with floor-length sleeves had crystal detailing covering the singer’s entire body in glimmering stripes. Cardi was not up for any Grammy nominations this year but took home the award for Best Rap Album at last year’s ceremony

Worst: Camila Cabello

Camila walked the red carpet, sans boyfriend Shawn Mendes, in a strapless black gown. Decked out in Versace she looked beautiful but we missed her bf.

Worst of the Worst: Joy Villa

“If I’m not known for my music, I might as well be known for my ridiculous fashion choices” —Joy Villa, probably, every time she decides what to wear to a red carpet. The Pro-Trump singer has taken it upon herself to flaunt her pro-conservative politics at the annual music event —we’ll say it again for the people in the back: Annual. Music. Event. The red, white and blue ensemble however, showed off Villa’s belief that Donald Trump should be voted back into office featuring the words “Impeached & Re-elected.” After using the Grammys as a political stunt for the past six years, we’re left wondering if she’ll ever make music as memorable as her statement dressing. 

Worst: Gwen Stefani’s weird performance and dress

So during Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s performance of “Nobody But You,” both singers were off-key and awkward —but that’tsnot even all of it. Stefani inexplicably wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress that felt vaguely culturally appropriative with its iconography and headdress (this wouldn’t be the first time for her). Idk about you, but I think, maybe they should just stick to flirting on The Voice and releasing holiday singles.

She Moved Up The Ranks From Janitor To Nurse Practitioner, Now She’s Viral

She Moved Up The Ranks From Janitor To Nurse Practitioner, Now She’s Viral

Talk about a dream fulfilled.

For ten years, Jaines Andrades harbored her desire to move up from her custodial position at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts to nurse. Now, ten years later, as an RN she’s excelled well past her drams.

Andrades worked her way through nursing school while working at Baystate Medical in Springfield, Massachusetts, as a janitor.

Ten years ago, Andrades accepted a position as a custodial staff member at Baystate Medical Center with big dreams of being a nurse. Born to Puerto Rican parents Andrades moved from her family home in Springfield, MA in 2005 when she was 14 years old. From there she and enrolled as a student at Putnam Technical-Vocational Academy with hopes of moving up the ranks as a nurse.

“As I got older and approached graduation I just didn’t see how a little girl like me could ever become a lawyer. I didn’t see it as something that was possible for me, so I got discouraged from the idea,” Andrades explained according to Masslive.com.

That all changed after she struck up a conversation with a nurse during a doctor’s visit for her mother. According to Andrades, the nurse tipped her off on the benefits of nursing. “He told me about the program to become a nurse, and, the more he talked, I just thought, ‘Yeah, I can do this.’ It’s a respectable profession, and I could provide for myself financially, so the idea grew from there.”

Soon after she enrolled at Holyoke Community College, ticked off all of her pre-requisites and a handful of introductory nursing classes. Then, in 2010, she transferred to Elms College.

The same year she transferred, Andrades applied for a job in Baystate’s Environmental Services Department and became a custodian at the hospital.

“It’s tough to be the person that cleans. If I had to go back and do it again, I would. It’s so worth it,” Andrades explained in an interview with WBZ-TV.

In a Facebook post, Andrades wrote about her journey from hospital custodian to nurse practitioner and posted a picture of all three of her IDs.

Andrades’ story went viral after she shared her experience to Facebook.

Speaking about her journey from custodian to nurse practitioner, Andrades shared a picture of all three of her IDs.

“Even if it was cleaning, as long as I was near patient care I’d be able to observe things. I thought it was a good idea,” the RN explained in her interview before sharing that her favorite part of being a nurse has been her ability to provide patients with comfort. “I just really love the intimacy with people.”

“Nurses and providers, we get the credit more often but people in environmental and phlebotomy and dietary all of them have such a huge role. I couldn’t do my job without them,” she went onto explain. “I’m so appreciative and like in awe that my story can inspire people,” Andrades told WBZ-TV. “I’m so glad. If I can inspire anyone, that in itself made the journey worth it.”
