Grammys: Red Carpet: Esperanza Spalding

Soulful bassist and jazz singer Esperanza Spalding is known for her eclectic fashion sense. The 27-year-old artist rocked the Grammy red carpet in a multi-colored strapless gown that resembled beautiful splashes of watercolor. The “Black Gold” singer finished off the natural look with a bronze vintage belt. We love the bohemian chic look!
