Luxe for Less: 2013 Grammy Awards

The red carpet at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards was a bit more modest than usual, thanks to the strict¬†dress code¬†memo sent out to all the attendees. But luckily for us, there were still some beautiful gowns to be seen! Check out some of our favorite styles below, and how you can get the look for less at Lotus Bridal.

Taylor Swift has really been stepping up her fashion game lately, and Sunday night was no exception. We loved her white gown from J. Mendel.

The Grecian look is super hot in bridal fashion. Look at this stunning gown from designer San Patrick, just one of the many similar styles available at Lotus Bridal:

Another beautiful gown was worn by actress Kat Dennings. She wore a periwinkle Vivianne Westwood gown with a funky asymmetrical neckline.
