Hey guys! So as usual, I do not have a TV to watch award shows but I DO have Twitter that gives me every little detail the second it happens so it feels like I’m watching it in real time – except there are so many tweets to go through, I’m actually about an hour or so behind so not really. I still got to experience all the ups and down of watching Claire Danes and Modern Family win their respective categories AGAIN (not that it’s undeserved or anything, I just like to share the love), Merritt Weaver’s hilarious blink and miss it acceptance speech, and overwhelming satisfying feeling of seeing Breaking Bad take home Best Drama (this show is nearly flawless television and in my opinion should win everything).
However, this post is about fashion and that’s what we’re going to talk about. I usually do a Top 10 Best, sometimes Worst, Dressed List, but this year I found myself commenting on the looks as the pictures showed up on my Twitter feed so I thought I would go ahead and just post my thoughts on a handful of these looks – Parts 2 and 3 will follow. Maybe later I’ll round it up for a Top 5 Best and Worst Dressed.
Anna Faris – Monique Lhuillier
Oh Monique (she’s my dream wedding dress designer), you make the prettiest gowns. Anna reminds me a little of Emma Stone here (not a bad thing), and I do like the bold yellow color on her but I am not feeling the blunt bangs.
Zooey Deschanel – J. Mendel
Zooey’s hair looks so perfect and bouncy (and does anyone else see Alexis Bledel or am I just imagining celebs as other celebs today?), but she can do better than this dress. It’s boring, the wrong color, and that thing on the side is so random and tacky. Plus the slit on the side which is supposed to give the conservative-looking dress some sexiness, just looks awkward and unflattering from the side.
Sofia Vergara – Vera Wang
The curve-hugging, plunging neckline, mermaid-flaired silhouette is pretty much Sofia’s staple and something we’ve all seen from her before but she works it SO well so why stop? I do like the added all-over lace detailing and the multi-colored earrings. I usually prefer wavy hair in front of the ears not behind, but I can understand when you’re rocking that kind of bling you want to show it off.
Anna Gunn – Romona Keveza
YES YES YES!!! This is what I’m talking about!! STUH-NING!!! Who even knew Skyler White could look this good?! Love love love!! Hair, makeup, gown, accessories – all a big fat WIN in my book!!
Rose Byrne – Calvin Klein
Woah, someone’s gone blonde! I loved her dark locks, but I’m kinda digging this whole look. It’s so…fresh and soft and girly (although can we please a smile? you’re so much prettier when you smile, Rose). Although this dress totally looks like something out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s closet – except she would’ve gone with stick straight hair instead – I really like it. It’s polished and sleek with just the right amount of sexiness with the cropped top.
Melissa Rauch – Rubin Singer
Melissa, you are looking so Taylor here with your cute bangs and pretty smile (I swear I’m not doing this on purpose)…except much more miniature and…and I kinda like it. The teal earrings paired with the royal purple are actually really awesome. And while I don’t quite like the mesh on the torso, the color is gorgeous against her lovely pale skin and she just looks so put together and pretty.
What is this?? Okay, okay, I will admit, I love the color, but EVERYTHING else about this gown… Actually, everything else below the shoulders – those shoes?? WHAT THE–??? No. Top too low, sides too wide, too much crinkled wrinkly-looking material, I don’t know what’s going on with the torso, and again why those black shoes??
Carrie Underwood – Romona Keveza
Carrie!! You are usually at the top of my Best Dressed list!!! Yes, you do look pretty…but you can do SO much better!! It looks like a prom gown or the dress on your Holiday Barbie! Your hair and makeup are flawless and you look good in this color along with every other color of the rainbow but that still does not excuse this decision…but I guess I’ll just let you make it up to me next time.
Elisabeth Moss – Andrew Gn
Beautiful! So simple, chic, and classy, and I love the bright red lips and super blonde hair – probably the best she’s ever looked. I guess I’m feeling the black and white trend tonight.
Heidi Klum – Versace
NO. WHY??? #IHateIt It looks like a blood-covered praying mantis/velociraptor is staring at me on your chest/torso and it’s creeping me out. Also, that cannot be comfortable.
What did you think of the Emmys Fashion? Part 2 coming soon!
