Red Carpet Fashion: 2013 Emmys

So now that I’ve returned in Chicago it’s time to get back to real life (a life sans daily croissants and baguettes, unfortunately) and a regular posting schedule starts once again this week. I hope you didn’t miss me too much but if you did, I sure as hell missed you. I don’t think there’s any better “welcome back” post than some red carpet commentary. I did not watch the Emmys last night because I was enjoying one final hoorah in London but I did look at all the red carpet photos.  The Emmys are by no means the fashion event of the year but I haven’t seen dresses this bad since Facebook stalking my college classmates’ prom photos. Seriously.

Red Carpet Fashion: 2012 Emmys (Part 3)

Although I was less than impressed with the overall fashion on the red carpet last night (see official rant here), I did happen to find 2 more of my best dressed picks in part 2.

Will I choose another? Let’s find out.

Red Carpet Fashion: 2012 Emmys (Part 2)

With part 1 of my Emmys fashion coverage bringing you a red carpet rant, a mermaid in Vegas and my first best dressed pick of the night…I’m hoping you’re all caught up.

Now it’s time for part 2. The judging continues…

Red Carpet Fashion: 2012 Emmys (Part 1)

The first major awards show of the season, the Emmys, were last night. The red carpet was full of bordeux, yellow, some shamefull beaded turquoise numbers and a pleasantly surprising influx of J. Mendel.

Like I tweeted last night, I feel like with the rise of social media, the increasing popularity of red carpet coverage along with things like Fashion Police, celebrities are less willing to take a risk when it comes to these events. You would think it might have the opposite effect but let’s be honest…no one wants to be bashed on national television. So, gone are the days of Bjork’s swan dress and JLo’s extreme low cut Versace caftan….it looks like a red carpet full of ruching, jewel tones and strapless gowns is in our future for the long haul.

Now that my rant is out of the way (thanks for listening), let’s get to the judging.

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 Emmy Awards (Part 3)

I promise I’ll leave you alone with Emmys red carpet fashion after this! Be sure to check out part 1 and part 2 of my red carpet commentary and let me know who your best and worst dressed picks in the comments section below!

PhotobucketCobie Smulers in Alberta Ferretti

Although a very standard Alberta Ferretti awards show dress (mostly with regards to the silhouette), it’s beautiful on Cobie and it was really refreshing to see this color on the red carpet.

PhotobucketClaire Danes in Oscar de la Renta

How many times can we see this woman wear a strapless tube gown? She needs to try a different silhouette. Love the dress (but not on her). Not dying over the hair. Hating the makeup.

PhotobucketChristina Hendricks in Johanna Johnson

I’m just going to say what we’re all thinking…it’s time for a reduction. I feel bad but nothing EVER works for her when it comes to red carpet dresses. It looks like her boobs are trying to escape!

PhotobucketCat Deeley in Monique Lhuillier

Pretty. Standard. And pretty standard for Monique Lhuillier.

PhotobucketHeidi Klum in Christian Siriano

I think it’s great Heidi wore a former Project Runway designer’s dress for the Emmys. This dress is VERY Christian Siriano and I really love it on Heidi. It’s out there but I always appreciate a risk. I would have gone with a different shoe but now I’m just getting picky.


Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang

I like how she did something a little less boobalicious for the Emmys but I’m just not feeling it. The color is great but I’m never a fan of one shoulder dresses and the knotted gathering by the knees seems unnecessary. Also thinking the earrings are just a bit much. And a word of advice…nail your red carpet looks before you launch a clothing line (even if it is for Kmart).

PhotobucketSarah Hyland in Christian Siriano

I thought it was cute she collaborated with Christian on this dress. As I mentioned, I don’t love one shoulder dresses but this looks really great on her and it’s perfectly age appropriate (but I could have definitely done without that bracelet!)

PhotobucketNina Dobrev in Donna Karan

Like I’ve said many times, I am not a fan of red dresses (which sucks for me because it seemed like everyone and their mother was wearing red last night). But Nina was the first to be interviewed on the E! red carpet and my jaw just dropped. It goes to show that fit is EVERYTHING. I also love the ruffles at the bottom. She OWNED this look.

PhotobucketMinka Kelly in Dior

Is it just me or is she identical to Leighton Meester? Anyway, she looks great in the dress. It’s not my absolute favorite of the night but we’ve definitely seen worse. However I do like the lace detail and I appreciate when black and navy is done right.

Until the next red carpet event!
