Celeb Saturday - The Emmy's Best Dressed

I love a good Red Carpet and the Emmy's didn't disappoint! There were definitely more risks here that really paid off, and I couldn't be more excited about it! Here is my top 10 list from Sunday night's show!


10. Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier

I love a risk, and I think orange is a really hard color to pull off, but Ginnifer did! I think the nude backing of the orange accents works well with her skin and it just looks fun! 

(I'm not just saying that because I watched season 1 of Once Upon a Time on Netflix in 2 days. ;) )

9. Amy Poehler in Stella McCartney

I don't remember her ever looking better! This sequin gown just hugs the body, and almost looks like it's melting off of her! It works! 

8. Jane Krakowski in Kaufmanfranco

Also crusted in beads/sequins, Jane looks great! I love how the sequins starts small at the top and gradually grow as the dress continues. It gives a gorgeous effect, and it too looks like liquid on her body!

7. Hayden Panettiere in Marchesa

When I first saw Hayden, I was unsure what I thought on this gown. But after I stared at it, I loved it! I love that idea, though... Something that's different can make you uncomfortable, and you're not sure if you like it or hate it; that usually means it's a good design! I think it's an interesting idea with the crinkled metallics peaking through a dark blue tulle. It's really interesting and pretty!

6. Julie Bowen in Monique Lhuillier

Of all of the bright colors of the night, Julie was my favorite! This dress is really classic with a little twist in the skirt and the pop of color. I saw some people were iffy about this one, but I love it! I think she looks modern and sophisticated! Work that chartreuse! ;)

5. Lucy Liu in Versace

I'm a sucker for metal and reflection, and I think Lucy looks amazing in this structured beauty! It's definitely a risk, some people will hate it, but I love how bright and futuristic it looks among a lot of classic dresses and silhouettes!

4. Emily VanCamp in J. Mendel

Instantly I fell in LOVE with the muddy color of this J. Mendel dress. I think it can definitely work on a lot of skin tones, and Emily is really rocking it. It's great for the body and the sheer effects layered in make it interesting while still being classic.

3. Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Vera Wang

I have a soft spot for Julia, and I think she looks really pretty in this gown! The sheer draped straps are really cool and this hugs her body in all of the right places!

2. Edie Falco in Stella McCartney

I'm in love with this dress, and Edie in it... Like a lot! I love the illusion on the side which makes you think how that dress is hugging her body like that without a side panel! Aha, it's there, it just blends perfectly with Edie's skin! The color looks great on her, and the belt takes it to a whole new level! Her hair, too, it is all flawless.

1. January Jones in Zac Posen

And the winner is, January! I love this dress! Black on a red carpet seems iffy to me, but I think that it really works here! She's popping off the page! The fun lines, the gorgeous shape, the sheer sophistication... It's really great.


A great red carpet, right?

  1. I'm partial to Julianne Moore's dress... although I might be grading on a bit of a curve, given her typical HTM red carpet choices. Ha, also, after seeing the comment made on another site, I can't look at Julia Louise-Dreyfus' dress without seeing a "suspension bridge for her tits."

    You should do a worst-dressed list!

    1. For some reason, in my mind, I knew you would love Julianne Moore's dress! And I do like it! It's a great color... Haha. It is a suspension bridge! I love it!!!

      I hated Christina Hendricks' boobs, Zooey Deschanel, Lena Dunham, Elizabeth Moss, Ashley Judd, and, of course, Glenn Close!

  2. Ha, I was so perplexed by Lena Dunham that I had to contact Ms. Hazen about it... what the HELL was she wearing?! HER BODY MADE NO SENSE!!!!!

  3. A great red carpet! I love that Zac Posen - and the one that Kelly Osbourne was wearing too. Now I gotta check out poor old Lena Dunham haha.


    1. OK - I've seen it now. OH DEAR! Do you suppose she made it herself???

    2. LOL, it does look that way, doesn't it?? Really confused.
