The Emmy’s celebrates television, one of the true great loves of my life, making this one of my favorite awards shows. Here are my thoughts on some of the fashions.
Edie Falco, looking the best I’ve ever seen her, in a belted Stella McCartney illusion gown. Plenty of stars have worn the Stella illusion dresses, including Gwenyth, Kate Winslet, and Kate Moss. They all looked amazing and Ms. Falco proves again that this look does not fail. Her long hair pulled back into a chic but simple pony-tail makes her look young and fresh. And her body is better than ever. Edie was nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy for Nurse Jackie.
Emily VanCamp, presenter. This J.Mendel smokey grey gown grew on me the entire night. The color was flawless with her coloring, the subtle cleavage in the middle was was the right amount of sexy. Her hair was so pretty (better than it looks in pictures) and that bow bracelet is to die for. Can’t wait for Revenge to start again Sunday!
Jane Levy from Suburgatory, who presented. I did not even have her on my radar but that gorgeous bright blue Pamela Roland gown was stunning with her red hair and light skin. Classic and conservative but sexy at the same time since it fit like a glove.
Connie Britton, presenter and nominee for Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie, for American Horror Story, one of my favorite new shows. I think Connie is insanely beautiful. This sparkling halter-neck Andrew Gn dress would not have been one of my favorite looks except for how phenomenal she looks in it. It hugs her amazing body perfectly. Her hair was matronly though, I was not a fan.
Yes and No: The Looks I was Torn Over
Juliet Louis-Dreyfus had on a beautiful maroon Vera Wang dress, but the overly light touch of her make up did not do her any favors. A pretty winged or smokey eye would have glammed her face up to match the dress. I was also not a fan of the hair or the blue earrings. She gets bonus points though for a hilarious bit with Amy Poehler during her acceptance speech for Best Actress in a Comedy. Here’s the video: Juliet and Amy Speech Swap
Kat Denning’s J. Mendel dress was so pretty, a brilliant red which matched her red lips, dark hair, and alabaster skin wonderfully. She looked amazing, except that her gigantic boobs look one wrong move away from busting out of her dress. When she presented, they looked as though they were going to go flying out the entire time. I feel like she’s trying to be the next Christina Hendricks, another “actress with the giant boobs.” Classy look but ended up not classy at all.
Heidi Klum, nominee for Best Host for a Reality show, of course looks beautiful here in this turquoise Alexandre Vauthier gown. But I find the slutty, I mean slit-ty style to be inappropriate for any red carpet, let alone the Emmys.
Sofia Vergara’s Zuhair Murad teal dress had me torn. She looks incredible in it, as usual. And I liked the ribbon halter. But I feel like it’s a bit cheesy, no? Like a revamped disco prom dress.
My Least Favorite Looks:
Presenter Hayden Panettiere Marchesa dress is most likely splitting critics. I think it is not young or fresh enough for her, especially since she is really this year’s ingenue because of Nashville premiering soon. I just think it’s pretty bizarre and does not really do anything for her.
The ladies in Yellow. All these women look nice, but this color is just a little too much for a black tie event for my taste. Winner of Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy, Julie Bowen, almost blinded the cameras in her Monique Lhuillier during her acceptance speech. She did look great though overall, I loved her half up ‘do, but this dress was neon lime. Strange. Claire Danes looked pretty too in her strapless Lanvin, which showcased her baby belly. Definitely my least un-favorite of the yellow gang. But sort of casual. Lastly, I thought Julianne Moore’s chartreuse long-sleeved Dior gown was nice until I saw the bottom half. Woof.
This tangerine explosion by Monique Lhuillier is also splitting critics, worn by Ginnifer Goodwin. A little too weird for me but I know she likes to push limits and be adventurous. Her Louis Vuitton shoes are stunning though.
Just no all around, Kristen Wiig, in Balenciaga.
And a big fat no to you too, Julianna Margulies, in Giambattista Valli.
Thanks, hope you enjoyed the show!
