After Parties Are Where It’s At

Typically, I only do a couple of red carpet posts when it comes to the Oscars (which if you haven’t checked it out yet, parts one and two are waiting for you) but because this year was pretty disappointing, I thought I’d take a look at the after party dresses. And good thing I did because they are a million times better than what most people wore to the actual ceremony. Whether it’s Elton John’s or Vanity Fair, there’s a ton of parties that go on after the Oscars and thankfully this year, celebs really brought it. Well, most of them…

Let’s wrap things up now…

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.

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.

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).

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!

QVC’s Live from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Runway Show

This weekend, I attended the QVC runway show and after party in NYC. I have been so impressed with the branding initiatives QVC has implemented within the last few years so I was very excited for this event. The runway show displayed various looks from several QVC designers, with a front row including Matthew Settle and Kelly Rutherford (AKA Rufus and Lilly) along with AnnaLynne McCord.

The after party was cool because we got to watch live broadcasts of Heidi Klum, Isaac Mizrahi and the Kardashian’s collections. I had a really great time and I can’t wait to share with you more New York Fashion Week updates!
