Last night we watched the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and while I had high hopes the show made me realize a few things: 1. I don’t watch nearly as much TV as I thought I did, 2. the Emmytones was a bad idea.
The real show for me is always on the red carpet, but in any case, my favorite moments were “the Jimmy’s” and the nominating moment for Best Actresses in a Comedy.
Let’s see the best looks of the night:
Red was the color of the evening and I loved the hue, the cut and fit of Martha Plimpton’s Zac Posen gown.
It’s perhaps a little too Miss Universe for some, but Sofia Vergara is also perhaps a little too Miss Universe. The color and fit are beautiful in this Vera Wang gown.
The gown, the fit, the sophistication are all aces in the Zac Posen gown worn by Christine Baranski.
I have been an Elie Saab fan since Halle Berry wore the designer to the Oscars so many years ago. This dress on Evan Rachel Wood has a fabulous Old Hollywood glamor silhouette and there is nothing to complain about with that.
The almost right looks:
I saw this trio and felt a little sad; it’s like the bride’s fashionable best friend, the maid of honor and the mother of the bride. Highest marks for Rachel Taylor in Giorgio Armani, then Annie Ilonzeh in Ramona Keveza, and lastly Minka Kelly in Christian Dior.
Amy Poehler in Peter Som, and Kate Winslet in Elie Saab were both suffering from the same ailment, there dress was just an inch(es) too tight. These women are fabulous and in fabulous shape, and wearing fabulous gowns, but the fit just fell flat.
Cobie Smulders in Alberta Ferretti has the opposite problem, her dress drooped and dragged and felt like it could have been pulled an inch tighter for the perfect fit.
The not quite there…
Gwyneth Paltrow is perhaps one of the most fit actresses in Hollywood, and yet this potentially stunning dress by Emilio Pucci does her and her midriff no favors. If the Indian inspired gown had been beaded through the body with no interruption, I think we find GP in a different Fashion Police category.
Katie Holmes grew up on TV and in some ways I feel like this look is an homage to the 17 year old in us all; the sporty and semi-shapeless dress, and the just from the shower top bun are all a bit high-school, pre stylist.
