If there was one red carpet trend to be found at last night’s fashionably chaotic Grammys, it was some attendees putting the actual pomp in pomp and circumstance. (If only two or three more people had brought Popes. Sorry, Nicki/Roman, but one Pope date does not a trend make.) No less than eight stars hairsprayed their best Conan O’Briens when they arrived at the Grammys rocking sky-high pompadours.
So who wore it best? If we’re judging on height alone, Ledisi would be the undisputed champ as her ‘do could have easily allowed her to double as a Grammy nominee and a guard at Buckingham Palace. Of course, Bruno Mars’ classic take on the pompadour, Katy Perry’s vertical homage to The Smurfs, and Sasha Gradiva’s pouf put up a good fight, too. (Okay, Gradiva’s wasn’t nearly as impressive as Ledisi’s or Perry’s, but she had a gun on her arm, so it’s probably in our best interest not to split hairs on her hair.)
But what do you think, PopWatchers? Nay, PompWatchers. Did the best pompadour belong to Ledisi, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars or Sasha Gradiva? Or should pomp stars Alicia Keys, Tia Carrere, Nancy O’Dell or Joyce DiDonato get the honor? Vote in our poll below and share in the comments section!
