Who I Rated
If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know I have a soft spot for the middle Kardashian sister (verging on obsessed, not gonna lie) and so you'd expect her in any best dressed list of mine. The star of hit E! reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians claimed she’d “overeaten” the day before the awards ceremony and felt bloated in her white Marchesa dress with neck embellishment, but I think she looked simply stunning (as always)! I preferred the dress she posted on her website though, as I like the colour on her and the one shoulder detail as you can see:
25-year-old Kelly attended the awards ceremony on her own after splitting from her fiancée Luke Worrall amid cheating claims. The star has embarked on a major fitness regime since the break-up and it's definitely paid off. The former Dancing With The Stars contestant wore a black, v-neck Tony Ward couture gown and looked better than ever. Loving the blonde do, too, Kel.
Heidi Klum isn't your average 37-year-old mum of four. No, Heidi Klum is the internationally renowned supermodel who still manages to out-do all the twenty-somethings at the Emmy awards - a few years off fourty! The star attended the ceremony with husband Seal (yes, as in Kiss From A Rose Seal - I don't get it either) as she was nominated for a best TV host nod for Project Runway. Sadly she didn't take home the coveted award but hopefully she'll sleep knowing she looked hottest on the catwalk in her Marchesa mini.
Dexter actress Jennifer missed out on an Emmy this year to those crooks at Mad Men, but she certainly didn't lose in the style stakes in this one shouldered gunmetal grey number. According to the St Tropez Twitter team, their experts tanned the star in preparation for her Emmy's appearance last night. I wonder if she had to wear paper panties, too?
Now, I have to admit that I'm torn here. No doubt the Desperate Housewives actress looks breathtaking in her black, strapless Robert Rodriguez gown - but that's the thing, I don't actually like the gown. It's oddly shaped, cinches in at the wrong place and don't even get me started on the bottom half. Eva manages to pull it off because luckily she's naturally beautiful and has hairdresser to the stars Ken Paves on speedial.
Oh my, hasn't she come a long way since playing Leo's love interest in Romeo + Juliet all those years ago? She looks all grown up in her Armani Privé gown encrusted with Swarovski crystals and is alleged to have partied hard at Jimmy Fallon's post-show party after scooping a best actress award for her role in Temple Grandin. Lovely looking lady.
Isn't it nice to see some curves on the red carpet! (Stephanie Pratt, take note). The Mad Men star must be celebrating after the show took home the best drama award, beating True Blood, Dexter and cult fave Lost. She's wearing Zac Posen and looks bloody gorgeous *dribbles*...
Areeeba! The Latin American star of the best comedy 2010 Modern Family looks saucy in a Carolina Herrera number. Love the wavy locks, sexy make-up and chandelier earrings, too. Kudos!
The star of FOX's acclaimed show Glee missed out on an Emmy this year, but her castmate Jane Lynch scooped the best supporting actress award for her role as coach Sue Sylvester (well deserved). I love the colour of her navy gown against her pale complexion, and her auburn locks complete the look. It's a thumbs up from me.
and one for the guys...
Be mine? ♥
Who I Hated
I'm going to start with the worst (in my opinion) ...
I just don't get it. Why would you think wearing a cobalt blue dress with the front section cut out, pointy boob bits and what looks like scales all over it, to the EMMYS? WHY? And more importantly, why would Versace MAKE a dress like this? Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I think it looks revolting. Cute pumps though and edgy blonde bob.
This Alexander McQueen dress just does nothing for the True Blood actress. It makes her look a lot bigger than she probably is, and it doesn't help that I'm generally a devout hater of satin (no, not Satan). Sack the stylist.
OK, so the dress isn't awful - I mean, it's baby-blue, it's one-shouldered, it's Dior; it's fail-safe and it ticks all the boxes. It's just, she looks so bloody grumpy. Cheer up, love, you're at the EMMY'S, remember! Perhaps it's not so wedded bliss with new hubby, The Office star John Krasinski, after all? (Yeah, I went there...)
I feel sorry for Quinn... I mean, Dianna. It's her 1st Emmy awards and she must've thought it was fancy dress. What else explains the Little Bo Peep-esque set-up? All she needs is a sheep, a pair of clogs and her hair in buns and she'll fit right in with Heidi at the top of the Swedish mountains in no time. Sorry, love. Perfect from the neck-up, though!
I'm going to start with a positive. I *love* the colour of this Max Azria Atelier gown on the pretty Emmy presenter. But, unfortunately, it looks like they've cut up a million tassly curtains and tried (and failed) to make a dress out of it. I don't like her fringe and hoop earrings either - aren't they a chav staple?
To be fair to her, she is a mum of 8 (hence the show, Jon + Kate Plus 8 - before the split) and she probably didn't have all day to be pampered like the rest of them, but it's not the make-up that bothers me. It's the dress. I don't like the neckline. Or her hoop earrings (for reasons as aforementioned). Or her dodgy, sweeping fringe. On the plus side, her make-up looks fab and she looks rather slim. Not bad for a reality TV star more famed for changing nappies than walking red carpets.
Now this, I imagine, is something you'll be surprised to see. Glee star Lea Michele has topped all the best-dressed lists since these Emmy pictures emerged, but I'm actually not a fan. I think she looks gaunt, her head looks too big for her body, I don't like the streaks in her hair, nor the blunt fringe on her. I think the dress looks tacky, and cheap, and... I don't know. It just isn't working for me. I wonder if you'll agree, or follow the crowd...
Don't get me wrong, it's a cute dress on The Hills star. I just don't think, personally, it really stands out on the red carpet. A party at Chateau Marmont, perhaps, but not here. Plus, I don't like her peroxide blonde hair and OTT tan. It's a bit try-hard for me, I'm afraid.
Another nice dress, but it doesn't fit the petite star of The Hills and author of lifestyle website The Lo Down properly. It's far too long and makes her look bigger than she actually is. It's a shame, because Lo usually gets it right. But not this time.
That's all for this time. My favourite ensemble of all was Claire Danes'. She looks simply dazzling in her elegant, sparkling Armani Privé gown. Catch the Emmys in the UK 22:00 30/08/10 on FIVE USA.
