i'm back from jury duty! nothing makes you more grateful to return to work than a day of jury duty. blech.
the emmy's came and went and overall i found myself rather bored with the award show. i wasn't bored however, by the fashion! i loved the bright colors, daring necklines and body hugging dresses.
below are my winners and my one major loser of the night.
i loved the abundence of sweetheart necklines that appeared on the red carpet. whether it was zooey's beautiful periwinkle reem acra dress, padma's incredible fiery orange monique lhuillier or julianne hough's george hobeika mermaid gown the laides have never looked prettier! i am still not 100% sure but i think, padma was my favorite look of the night.
another ever present guest on the red carpet were some plunging necklines. kat dennings really wowed me in her j mendel gown - i mean she looks just gorgeous! while i still don't know who moreno baccarin is, she definitely made me take notice in this basil soda gown. the color, the neckline the bodice, just incredible. and then came miss heidi klum, either a hit or miss often in my book was most definitely a hit in this seafoam gown that left little to the imagination.
i am always a sucker for glimmer, shimmer and gold on the red carpet. i mean talk about the event to sport all of those trends. kerry washington is always flawless and this vivienne westwood did not disappoint. when guilana interviewed her she was just radiant and oh so lovely. my shocker of the evening...edie falco in stella mccartney. the girl has never looked better and the gold belt just made her look so tiny! i just think lucy liu is about the cutest and i loved her mirrored, metal versace gown which must have been so heavy to wear on her little frame. when she presented on stage she looked like liquid metal and i loved it!
i didn't have too many absolute hate looks for the night but i did feel real bad for lena dunham and whomever let her walk out the door in this prada number...
i literally cringed at the screen when i saw her in this as i makes her look so big and dumpy. i mean the dress does NOTHING for her figure and for such a bright star and her first emmy debut, this look just really failed big time for me. here's hoping she speaks to a stylist stat (might i recommend brad goreski) and wows us all on the golden globes red carpet!
