It had been a very long time I didn’t work on a red-carpet round up… so I was really looking forward to the Emmy’s! As usual, let me start by the best dressed of the night!
1- Rose Byrne in Calvin Klein
I’m flabbergasted by the simplicity of this look and the beauty of Rose Byrne. The exposed waist, the blush shade, the column skirt… I just love everything about this Calvin Klein number!
2- Julie Bowen in Zac Posen
Just as I was starting to get tired of THE Zac Posen mermaid dress, I find myself falling in love with this more delicate version of the designer’s signature gown. I guess it’s the subtle blush colour that makes it less harsh and just pretty…
3- Kiernan Shipka
I don’t know if Kiernan Shipka has impeccable taste or just an incredible stylist, but she’s always perfect on the red carpet. When other young stars try to grow up too fast, she always manages to be chic and age appropriate…which is sooo refreshing!
4- Kate Mara in J. Mendel
It’s not easy to bring an edgier look on the Emmy’s red carpet, but Kate Mara does a really good job with this J. Mendel stunner. I don’t know what I love more… the cool textured top or the double-slit skirt?
5- Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang
I heard a lot of people complaining about Sofia Vergara’s usual mermaid sex bomb dress… but when she looks like this, how can we criticize. I personally think she looks STUN-NING!
Other good dresses…
Of course, there were many other good dresses on the red carpet (starting by Mindy Kaling in Georges Chakra!) Here’s a few of my favourites…
Best Colour: Cobalt blue
Even though I think Allison Williams Ralph Lauren gown was a little too simple and Edie Falco‘s Escada’s dress could’ve been more fitted… cobalt blue was definitely the stand-out colour!
Worst colour: Green (in every shade)
Unfortunately, green didn’t have the same effect on me… Is it me or it ages the 3 stars?
The trends: Black & white
With all the buzz it’s been getting on the runways , I wasn’t surprised to see a lot of black & white at the Emmys…
The trends: Transparency
In my eyes, transparency was the best trend on the red carpet last night. I love all these looks, and especially Leslie Mann’s daring J.Mendel dress!
The trends: Mermaid dresses
Mermaid dresses are an obvious choice for an award show… but last night’s selections were actually interesting because of the colours and textures. Here’s the proof…
The trends: Ball gowns
If transparency was the best trend at the Emmys, ball gowns were definitely the worst…. starting by Carrie Underwood’s horrible Romona Keveza prom dress!
1-Lena Dunham in Prada
Whoa! Not only is that silhouette sooo unflattering on Lena Dunham, but that print reminds me of a table cloth I use to have. And is that matching eye make-up?
2- Amanda Peet
I said transparency was my favourite trend of the night… but I was totally excluding this dreadful dress from the list. Seriously Amanda Peet?!
3- Zosia Mamet in Honor
This dress could’ve been really pretty if… a) it didn’t feature a leather bra inspired by Minnie Mouse’s ears b) if it was worn by someone else. Sorry Zosia.
4- Lily Rabe in Vionnet
I don’t think she could have found a cheaper looking dress if she tried… Enough said!
5- Emily Deschanel in Houghton
Talking about cheap looking dresses… here’s another excellent example! Not only is the fit awful, but the lace would look much better as a drape.
Other bad choices…
Once again, these 5 worst dressed weren’t the only bad choices of the night. Here’s a selection of looks that almost made it on my list.
So that’s it! I can’t wait to know who were YOUR best & worst dressed!
