Emmys Part 2

So! Let’s start round 2. I’m just getting started. I love this. I really wish there were more of these just so I could just do this all year. So let’s cut to the chase and judge these celebrities!

Kerry Washington
Very pretty. Fairy princess pretty, but subtle–not Barbie fairy princess realness. This is elegant. I like it.

Tina Fey
Way to work it Tina! Love this so much. Everyone take notes, because this is a grade A example of red carpet dressing. Bravo!

Julianne Hough
I’d like to call this piece “wardrobe malfunction in progress”. Really do not like this. The top itself is a train wreck but paired with the triumphant duo of the sheer skirt and granny panties. Why? No, really, how does this in any way shape or form sound like a good idea? Really. I vote there be a “yank” patrol at these sorts of events to make sure such incidents don’t happen. They would be stationed before the actresses got to the photographers. They’d also hand out fashion tape. Lots of it. In short, girl, yank up your dress and buy yourself a slip. There are other ways to show off your legs.

Elisabeth Moss
Love this Andrew Gn dress. She looks so fabulous. This is another favorite. Definitely in my top 5.

I really like this too. The color’s gorgeous and I love the details.

The Emmys: part one!

Sorry I kind of dropped the ball on fashion week. To be honest, I was hating a whole lot of what I was seeing, but that’s in the past now. It’s Emmy time! I must say the Emmys were pretty good this year as was the red carpet. Not too many fashion disasters surprisingly enough. Just like the Emmys had a few snags (cough cough Carrie Underwood cough cough) so did the red carpet but it’s not much that people will be taking about the next day. So let’s start talking about what these people wore!

The clear winner of the night as far as dressing goes. I love it, I love it, I love it. It’s great because it’s got balance to it. A bold color combo paired with a very simple elegant silhouette. This is such a leap up from that wrinkly sad satin mess she wore last year.

Claire Danes in Armani Privé
It’s pretty, but I absolutely hate it. Let me explain: the dress is gorgeous, the details are sublime. However this is so terribly wrong for her I can’t even get started. It’s the wrong color for her. She looks like a shiny pale blob. The waist should be at least two or three inches higher. The straps need to be raised about the same amount. Oh and I understand the need for it, but that is an icky modesty panel right there.

Rose Byrne in Calvin Klein
Very pretty. Not a fan of the midriff dresses, but this might convert me.

Julianna Margulies in Reed Krakoff
I think I like this. The dress is very pretty, and I am very happy to see that she decided to not do the super severe DIY facelift hair. However, I think I might have a “I’m beginning to sound look my mother” moment. She has pretty eyes, and it would be nice to see them both. Otherwise, it looks great. Very elegant.

John Hamm
The whole time he was presenting I wanted him to yell, “We need to get back to the island!!!” Seriously though. Why spoil such marvelous facial features with the Crazy Jack beard? Also, his suit looks a teensy bit too tight.

Lena Dunham in Prada
I really don’t like this dress. I’m actually really close to hating it, but I can’t because she looks so happy and comfortable in it. I’ll start off by saying that I like the color. It’s very flattering to her complexion and her hair. I hated the matchy eye make up. Isn’t obvious from the photos but I was cringing the whole red carpet interview. It just looked juvenile. I really like the top half. That’s a really good style for her. The bottom is where we run into issues. The fabric is much too heavy. It looks like it’s just standing on its own which just doesn’t flatter anyone. Speaking of, that print is awful on so many levels.

Alrighty that’s it for part one! Please switch to side B for part 2. Actually part 2 will be coming later so keep your eyes peeled!

Red Carpet Rundown: The Emmy’s

Alrighty! So the Emmy’s were last night and sadly I didn’t watch. I had homework and Doctor Who to catch up on. Oh and laundry. Anyhow, the fact that I didn’t watch the Emmy’s will not stop me from giving my two cents. So let’s roll!

Heidi Klum

Fabulous. Color, cut, and styling are marvelous. Only Heidi could make me turn back on my extreme hate of double slit dresses. Bravo.

Zooey Deschanel

I want to like this dress (color is fabulous) however

A) It looks like her limo drove off with the front of the skirt caught in the door

B) The bodice needs a good yanking up. Either the dress needed to be better fitted to her or she needs some good ol’ double sided tape, because it looks proportionately wrong.

Julianne Moore

This was terribly underwhelming for me. That’s a whole lot of yellow and the fit of the bust is strange. I had read that it was a two piece look (Dior couture) and in that case it looks like the skirt starts right under the bust which looks good on very few people and doesn’t seem to be doing so here.

Claire Danes

At first I wasn’t all that crazy about this look. It appeared way too casual and the top was a bit too drapey for my tastes. Note that the first time I saw this it was a straight on shot and I had no idea she was pregnant. So for that I give Lanvin a high five. From this view, it’s nice, and those shoes are just downright loco. My one issue is the super heavy liner. Way too much. Can’t even see her eyes.

Juliana Marguiles

Wonderful silhouette and I love the print, but on a ball gown it looks sort of like a granny’s couch sort of print. On a day dress it’d look fabulous, but red carpet? No. Her hair is also way way way too pulled back.

So that’s it for now, have to go and get some food and then drape some stuff. Yipee! Tune in for more!
