Last night I watched the 65th Annual Emmy Awards on CBS and almost fell asleep, mainly because of the flat fashion, not because of Neil Patrick Harris' amazing choreographed numbers. Many of the prime time television stars played their outfits too safe, which was as sad as the amount of in memoriam speeches the award show had.
Not surprisingly, a supermodel and television host of Project Runway looked the most glamorous at the Emmy's. Wearing a Versace gown, Heidi looked youthful and stunning. I love the construction of the dress that accentuates her natural curves. Even the futuristic high neck piece of the dress looks anything but cheesy. It works for someone as long-necked as Heidi, compared to someone like Lena Dunham.
Continuing the wine color trend, Kaley went all out with this look. The Vera Wang dress is romantic and modern all at the same time. Although I wish her accessories and hair matched the ruffle-embellished dress in detail, her makeup highlighted her features nicely.
I've never been severely disappointed by a Jenny Packham design, but this one is dreadful. Julianne's posture didn't help this dress in any way either. Everything looks saggy, and when you are in your twenties, nothing should look saggy. The fabric looks chintzy, even up close. The only thing to compliment is Julianne's glowing smile.
When you think the Emmy Awards, you think of television actresses in sophisticated gowns. Well, Sarah broke that image with a cheap cocktail dress. This LBD by Deadly Dames costs only $110 but it looks even cheaper than that. There is nothing interesting or captivating about this outfit. The random makeup aged the 42-year old woman even more. She would have looked stunning in the lobby of a Motel 6 in this boring getup, but at the Emmys? It's just blah.
