The MusiCares Gala took place on January 24th, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in the West Hall.
Just two night before the actual Grammy Awards, the MusiCares Gala took place in Los Angeles, featuring a special concert that featured artists such as Dixie Chicks, Lady Gaga, Bette Midler, Jason Mraz, and James Taylor. However, the star of the evening was Carole King, who was named the 2014 MusiCares Person of the Year, “in recognition of her extraordinary creative accomplishments as well as her significant charitable work, which has included an impressive range of philanthropic activities over the years.”
For the occasion, Lady Gaga looked appropriate and gorgeous in a white Alexis Mabille dress (which we predicted Cate Blanchett might wear here), with a cutout on the chest, jeweled belt and a knee slit, which she accessorized with silver pumps and round sunglasses. The singer took the time to pose with legends like Ozzy Osbourne and Yoko Ono on the red carpet. LeAnn Rimes arrived with husband Eddie Cibrian, and she wore a flattering purple gown with a deep cleavage.
Ciara attended the event in a striped pant suit, which looked especially cute with her growing baby bump. The singer looked radiant in pink lipstick that contrasted the navy outfit, and black stilettos. Hilary Duff went for a similar approach, donning a one-strap jumpsuit for the event. All of her accessories were gold, contrasting with the black outfit.
Also in attendance were Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Nettles, Gloria Estefan, Kristin Chenoweth, Sara Bareilles, Miguel, Brooke Candy and David Crosby.
