OK, I’ll say it, since no one else is…..
The Primetime Emmys were SO BORING Sunday night. In a world where everything from Fashion to Food to Business is thinking “ outside the box”, the Emmy’s made me yawn. The fashion ran a close second! With the 20’s 40’s 60’s, 70’s and 80’ influences all over the runway and vintage options everywhere you’d think someone would get a clue. Where’s the gumptiom!?
No where to be found Sunday evening.
Except for the few celebrities who at least dared take a fashion chance, the dresses were Booorrrrrriiiiiiing!
How many ladies wore red or nude…? Too many.
From Sophia Vergada in a GORGEOUS Vera Wang number who almost hit it out of the ball park but absolutely ruined it by hanging chandeliers on her ears, to
Kate Winslet in Ellie Saab who wore it perfectly, I was still bored.
So let’s go over the Cudos and Catastrophes…..
Let’s begin with Gwyneth Paltrow who wore a black lace Emilio Pucci piece.
I’ve heard people saying how she took a chance however the chance didn’t make a Cudos. Unfortunately her figure looks square because of where the top ends and the skirt begins. With a square body , this is what Not to wear. Had this dress been one piece it would have been flawless and her figure would have looked amazing.
Julianna Margulies wears a Giorgio Armani Privé dress and looks like a piece of pop art from the 60’s. The dress is way too long and her hair stylist forgot to style her hair!!
Christina Hendricks wears a Johanna Johnson Couture dress and thought that this was the best she ever looked? Hmmmmm. Truth is, it’s too much length, too much lace and the slit is in the wrong place. It is very unflattering and washes her out. Maybe next year.
Heidi Klum wears a Christian Siriano dancing with the stars dress…need I say more?
oh KKKKKatie..what happened? Looks like she made a pit stop to the Emmy’s on her way to the movies. She threw her hair up and ran out the door.
And the CUDOS go to….
Julia Stiles who for me was the best dressed of the night wearing a Georges Hobeika gown
Perfectly styled from head to toe.
My first runners up:
Kelly Osbourne in J. Mendel, Dianna Agron in Roksanda Ilincic , Gretchen Mol in L’Wren Scott and Evan Rachel Wood in Elie Saab. Unfortunately there was not much color but these dresses are all perfection, worn well, fit well and the designs are spectacular. So thanks Ladies for making my night!! CUDOS!!
