Grammys: Katy Perry, Taylor Swift Top Red Carpet Chatter on Social Media
Valentino and Gucci dominated the designer conversation on the micro-blogging platform, while Paris Hilton's Haus of Milani gown triggered noteworthy tweets.
Whose Grammy red-carpet looks set social media ablaze?
According to social media analytics firm TLL, which tracked fashion-related tweets from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 26, Valentino was the most mentioned designer on Twitter, thanks to Katy Perry's melodic white dress. The embroidered tulle ensemble from the spring 2014 couture runway featured musical notes on its ball gown skirt (designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were inspired by the opera La Traviata). "It’s musical for music’s biggest night," said Perry, who added Ivy diamond earrings and rings.
The second hottest fashion name on Twitter was Gucci, who dressed Taylor Swift in what she called a "chain mail" gown. "I think it's bulletproof," she told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. "It's really heavy. It's all of the things you would expect it to be, like a suit of armor." Gucci also dressed best new artist nominee Ed Sheeran.
Rounding out the top five designers was Ralph Lauren for suiting Madonna and her son David, Emilio Pucci for helping an expectant Ciara dazzle, and Giorgio Armani, who outfitted Robin Thicke in a slick suit and Alicia Keys in an Armani Prive cobalt silk jersey column, finished with a Swarovski-crystal-beaded belt.
Also a noteworthy red-carpet topic was Paris Hilton, who trended for a sheer, backless Haus of Milani gown. Unfortunately, users weren't familiar enough with the Italian design label to help it break into the top five. And of course, Pharrell Williams' hat was a hot topic on Twitter -- for better or worse.
Best-dressed looks ranked a bit differently on Facebook, who conducted a poll in conjunction with Good Morning America. Users' top Grammy red-carpet pick was Pink, who rocked a strapless Joanna Johansson gown. "I’ve never worn red, I’ve never been a red girl," she said of her crimson gown with vintage Neil Lane diamond jewels. The "Just Give Me a Reason" singer was then followed by Swift, Madonna, Perry and Keys.
The social media platform also collected users' favorite red carpet accessories in partnership with InStyle. Swift topped that poll with her Lorraine Schwartz earrings, followed by Perry's Ivy teardrop earrings, Sara Bareilles' bright red Louise et Cie shoes and Thale Blanc clutch, Madonna's jeweled glove and Rita Ora's cocktail rings, including a Cartier ring and multiple Lorraine Schwartz pieces.
