- Who wore it best?
Tag Archives: Emmy Red Carpet
Check out the biggest trends from last night’s red carpet. Here’s a breakdown of the big night’s biggest Stars and the Couture that made them shine…Scroll down for who wore what…what worked and what was not so great…
Let’s go Greek…
They came in white, conquered with embellishments and overall they were stunning. Damages’ Rose Byrne, Star of Dexter and No Ordinary Family’s Julie Benz, Glee’s Amber Riley and True Blood’s Anna Paquin all gave a history lesson in Grecian inspired gowns.
So who wore it best? It’s a tie between Anna Paquin’s edgy McQueen and Rose Byrne’s simple but elegant white dress.
Blue is the new Black…
There’s a new color in town and it is absolutely taking over. Navy Blue provides an alternative to all the “black loving” fashionistas out there. The designers are dishing it out and from all the navy blue looks on last night’s red carpet, the celebrities are eating it right up. Ladies like Glee’s Lea Michele & Jayma Mays, Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi and 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski were all singing the blues and looked incredible doing it.
Who takes the crown in the Navy Blue Round? The surprise winner is 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski in a one shoulder Escada. It is pure elegance at it’s peak.
Not so hot in blue was Mad Men’s January Jones. We’ll be the first to say kudos to Ms. Jones for never being afraid to take a fashion risk but even she herself looks displeased with this red carpet choice by Versace. The cobalt blue is an electrifying color but this is a bad case of the dress wearing you. We can’t wait to see her back in something that works better on her with an edge!
You can always go “Black”…
Navy Blue was huge but the go to color for award shows was still very much present. Desperate Housewives’ Eva Longoria Parker stuck to the basics in a textured Robert Rodriguez gown while Project Runway’s Heidi Klum showed off her famous legs in a Marshesa mini.
Not so hot in Black was The Office’s Mindy Kaling. Unfortunately, this looked like a bad prom dress. There’s a right way to do taffeta and tulle and this wasn’t it. The hair didn’t help either.
A Pop of Color…
It’s always great to see shocking colors on the red carpet. It is a sure fire way to stand out and that’s exactly what Bones’ Emily Deschanel did.
Thanks to a trip back to the 80s this season, sequins were huge last night on the red carpet. Stars like Claire Danes, Glee’s Heather Morris, Friday Night Lights’ Connie Britton and Dexter’s Jennifer Carpenter were electrifying in their sequined looks.
And the winner is…Jennifer Carpenter absolutely takes the cake on this one. The one shoulder look is stylish and the gun metal gray sequins elevate her look.
It’s raining Lace…
The biggest trend of the night was lace. It came in so many forms and styles with each Star making this trend her own. From Jewel, who surprised in Zuhair Murad to The Office’s Angela Kinsey who also looked elegant in Romona Keveza, this trend which has been around for a while has never been more prominent.
So who wore it best? The winner in this category is Jewel. Her Zuhair Murad dress is soft and feminine. The nude lace works well with her bronzed skin tone. The dress would probably look even more elegant without the bow but overall, it’s a look that works.
Best Dressed Boys…
Not to forget about the men, we’re splitting the award for best dressed between two very handsome men who brought the old school and the new school.
until next year folks…
