Another year another red carpet glitz and glam – this time one to celebrate & award best TV shows & actors/actresses. Yes… last evening The 2012 Emmy Awards too k place in Los Angeles and it was a night of fun, fashion & glamour. For the 1st time in a long time it looked classy but laid back, with most of the looks easily taking home the best dressed award. Claire Danes (Lanvin gown) & Julie Bowen (Monique Lhuillier gown) took home more than best actresses, as both looked stunning in bright yellows.
On a more fierce note, some ladies went for the classic hot red shade and looked gorgeous in different shades of the passionate hue. Ginnifer Goodwin went for a Monique Lhuillier heavily embroidered gown, that wasn’t too bad. In fact it was rather classy and safe. Not one to go for safety, regarding a wardrobe malfunction, Kat Dennings looked so effortlessly hot in her classic deep red J. Mendel strapless dress. Also a fashion winner was Victoria Justice’s bright red classic dress and Padma Lakhsmi‘s orange shade one. Kuddos to the girls going for red on the red carpet!
On the winning team in both awards and fashion wise, Sofia Vergara looked stunning. But that’s no news, right? With a turquoise mermaid sparkling open back Zuhair Murad dress she continues to amaze us. Sure the line and silhouette was the same as always (she does like showing off those curves) but why fix it if it ain’t broken right? I’m curious to see her in something else. Please Sofia… Lots of other Hollywood beauties went for the blue last night. Heidi Klum opted for a blue powdered high slit, flowy dress by Alexander Vauthier (trying to show the ex how hot you are there, Heidi?), Zoey Deschanel thought she was going to the prom in her princess-y Reen Acra blue dress. Jane Levy was absolutely stunning in a darker shade of blue – cobalt. So was Hayden Panattiere in her gold-green-blue-Marchesa dress, and Julianne Hough in Georges Hebeika. Can’t say the same about Julianna Margiulles or Nicole Kidman (Antonio Berardi dress). What is up with these two, especially Kidman – they always seem to end up on worst dressed list? Better luck next time ladies…
And of course you can’t get a red carpet event without the black and white gowns, or the variations of these absence of colors. Christina Hendriks, always a beauty and stunner at such events looked the part in her Christian Siriano dress, though in some photos it looked a bit too tight… I am looking at one that does her a lot of justice. Now about Giuliana Rancic what can I say except 2 things: amazing dress but perhaps a bit too skinny figure. January Jones was OK, though a bit too much makeup. And structured dresses were never my cup of tea… so I can say I’ve seen better. Jessica Pane on the other hand looked flawless in her simple white gown and black details. Lucy Liu went for an amazing all-over-sparkling metallic dress and looked stunning and Kelly Osbourne... well the dress was ok, but I’m not too keen on the hair. And besides it’s a been there done that look for Kelly.
