They say white is the color of innocence and tranquility — well, bad boy hip-hop star Chris Brown certainly tried to channel that at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
In recent weeks, Brown got involved in an alleged brawl with Grammy winner Frank Ocean at a Los Angeles recording studio, while the Los Angeles District Attorney also claimed he skipped community service as part of his probation for assaulting Rihanna four years ago.
Then on Saturday, he crashed his Porsche into a wall on the way to a children’s charity event before attending the Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch. Brown was “ruthlessly pursued by paparazzi,” his rep said.
“It’s cool. I’m fine,” Brown told E!’s Ryan Seacrest before Sunday’s ceremony at Staples Center (You can watch the interview after the jump). “A little bit of bumps. I’m good though.”
And when he stepped out on the red carpet before the world’s press at music’s night of nights, he looked more like ‘an angel’ than ‘a devil’ for the assembled crowds.
“Like most artists, Chris Brown has experienced turmoil both in his personal and professional life,” his stylist, Daver Campbell, told Celebuzz in an exclusive interview.
“White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity and virginity and considered to be the color of perfection.”
Campbell and his styling partner, Ugo Mozie, helped mastermind Brown’s red carpet look which compromised of a white Lanvin suit and shirt matched with Dries Van Noten shoes, plus a David Yurman ring and Rolex watch.
The all-white ensemble got the vote of approval from Brown’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna and perfectly complimented her stunning all red Azzedine Alaia gown. See photos of her flaunt the see-through gown here.
And although he stayed seated to clap Ocean when he beat himout for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Brown’s stylist claims the “Look at Me Now” singer’s outfit reflected how he really felt on the night.
“White represents a successful beginning and only being in the second month of the new year, we wanted to vocalize this with little to no words,” revealed Ugo Mozie.
“I believe Chris wearing white speaks volumes and establish a new journey and peace in his self and rising career in music.”
The two stylists worked closely with Brown to come-up with his Grammy night style and revealed the star was “excited” about attending the event, despite having a tough few weeks.
Campbell and Mozie had three fittings with Brown before he walked the red carpet in a bid to make sure that it was tailored to perfection.
