Judging from the shiny surface, this 65th Emmy’s Red Carpet seemed to lack true show-stopping fashion. It appeared to be just a sea of carbohydrate deprived starlets stitched up in couture with up-dos. But, having scratched the surface, I found there were more than a few noteworthy frocks.
Here is a smattering of gowns that caught my eye:
Ladies in Red
50 Shades of Red was the colour du jour, and no one wears the colour better than the sexy siren herself – Sofia Vergara. She sizzled in this red red Vera Wang. Does she have a license for that body or what? Criminal. That’s what I call it – criminal.
Kelly Osbourne looked the best I’ve seen her in a beautiful red Jenny Packham gown. I loved everything about this one and would’ve worn this EXACT dress had I been invited to the ball (just saying). Do love myself a Packham – so feminie.
Heidi Klum made a statement in a sequined, sci-fi number by Atelier Versace. It was indeed very striking, and I adored the slinky, multi red-hued sequins but the neckpiece? Not sold on that. Her pared down hair and make-up, however, was spot on for this showy extravaganza.
Michelle Dockery from Downton Abby (LOVE that show) looked regal in a beautiful red and burgundy ensemble by Prada. A really lovely colour combination against her creamy complexion.
Blue Also Seemed a Popular Choice for the Ladies of the RC.
Tina Fey looked hot in this uber flattering cobalt blue gown by Narcisco Rodriguez. What it did to her body – amazing (that and the daily stints with the trainer and juice fast). Its simplicity teamed with chic hair and make-up really suited her to a tee.
Zooey Dechanel also wore a gown that really suited her quirkiness yet was still very glamorous with a 60’s edge. An Ice blue J Mendel, accesorised with stunning Chanel cocktail rings, cool patterned nails and Charlotte Olympia clutch.
Work Your Assets
Rose Byrne was pretty in pink in a two piece Calvin Klein that only someone THAT tiny could pull off. The simplicity of this style and the gorgeous colour really showcased our Rose’s beauty.
Let it be said: The stunning Christina Hendricks wears black like no other. With her flawless, creamy complexion, those killer curves, chic red locks and plump red lips – she certainly shone in a black Christian Siriano.
When Bad Fashion Happens to Good People
There has to be one hasn’t there? I think it’s safe to say that the worse dressed person on the RC, possibly ever, was Lena Dunham in Prada. Yes, Prada made that floral catastrophe. Teamed with the bad tats, the bad hair and the bad 80’s inspired make-up – this was a train-wreck.
Connie Britton also looked awful in that gold embroidered velvet curtain by Naeem Khan. And way too much fake tan and body glow girlfriend. Put the brakes on already.
There also seemed to be a trend with some of the young girls wearing old lady dresses like Mayim Bialik in an emerald green Olivier Tolentino. Boring! This would have been more appropriate on Betty White. It seems to be one extreme or another with these young starlets! I can’t keep up…
Stay tuned for my favourite make-up and hair-styles of The Emmys.
