It's that time again, Emmy's fashion recap time! Last night at the 64th annual Prime Time Emmy Awards, TV's hottest stars got all dolled up to walk the red carpet and celebrate televisions biggest night of the year. There were some definite statements made and in general the ladies of the small screen looked beautiful. With record high temperatures, bright summery colors dominated the scene!
This might be the first time I've ever not had a "Best Dressed" pick. Many of the stars look gorgeous, but no one really wowed me. What I'm looking for is head-to-toe, on-trend, cutting-edge fashion in my best dressed pick and no one really did that for me this year. However, I will say that my favorite trend of the night was ORANGE, and that Ginnifer Goodwin of Once Upon a Time came closest to fitting the bill for me.
Another color trend on the red carpet last night was seafoam green, which was pulled off beautifully by Heidi Klum and Julianne Hough who looked like a mermaid in her sparkling gown.
I love to see a good print pulled off expertly. When done right prints look fresh and young like Modern Family's Ariel Winter shown below. When done wrong, it looks like the upholstery on your grandma's sofa, as demonstrated by Julianna Margulies.
I can't talk about red carpet fashion without mentioning the worst dressed on the list. Let me just say to all you stars out there, please look in the mirror before trotting down the red carpet. Julianne Moore looks like Big Bird in this giant yellow ball gown. This dress could have been a hit with a few modifications, I do like the high neck and long sleeve; however the corseted middle hits her under the breasts in a very uncomplimentary way and if you're going with the long sleeves it's best to keep the volume on the bottom to a minimum. This would have looked great as a long sheath jersey knit with a sleek pony tail.
I don't have a lot to say about Ashely Judd here, I didn't even see her on the red carpet last night and happened upon this picture this morning. This looks like a southern belle bridesmaid dress. The fabric is awful, even if you removed the horrifying halter bow and flower embellishment it would still be unflattering.
