This year the Emmy's were the day after the MTV Video Music Awards, and the two could not have been more different. I loved the contrast in fashion between the two awards ceremonies. The VMA's allowed stars to be a little quirkier and fun, and then the Emmy's brought the glamour and class. I always have fun watching the red carpet arrivals and judging each person on their looks as I sit at home make-up-less in a comfy and frumpy outfit from my couch. Oh the hilarity!
Here's my list of the best and worst:
Best Dressed (Female): Lizzy Caplan
I never want to pick a black dress as my favorite because it seems so safe, but Lizzy stole the show for me. When I first saw her the camera showed the look head on, and I thought, "Wow! She's come a long way from playing a goth girl on the hit movie, Mean Girls, to become an elegant Hollywood Showstopper!". The cut-outs and neckline on this Donna Karen gown were extremely flattering, and then . . . she started to walk away and I caught a glimpse of the back of the dress with the long white train . . . PERFECTION! Even her make-up and classic up-do were spot on.
Best Dressed Runner Up (Female): Sarah Hyland
Sarah also wowed from head-to-toe in Christian Siriano. Her top knot was perfect for her fun, summery look. She was right on trend in an age appropriate midriff top, and the ballgown skirt helped to keep the look more formal.
Worst Dressed (Female): Lena Dunham
Well, my first two ladies were perfect from head-to-toe, but Lena was a disaster from head-to-toe. Her little boy bleach blonde haircut, to the school uniform looking blouse, to the can-can dancer looking skirt . . . all absolutely terrible. In fact, it honestly baffles me how nobody stopped her before she left her house to let her know that look wasn't right.
Worst Dressed Runner Up (Female): Sarah Polson
Sarah's hair and skin look wonderful, but that tulle monstrosity of a dress looks like she raided my wreath making supplies.
Best Dressed (Male): Matt Bomer
Matt's classic Tom Ford tuxedo made him a standout.
Worst Dressed (Male): Jonathan Silver Scott
Let's just say I wasn't impressed with his underwear flashing. Moving on . . .
Best Dressed Couple: Matthew McConaughey and Camilla Alves
I loved both Camilla and Matthew's look. My only complaint is that I wish the lining on Camilla's dress was full length, and I wish their looks complimented each other better. Camilla was wearing a Zuhair Murad gown and Matthew is in Dolce & Gabbana.
Best Maternity Look: Hayden Panettiere
Everyone is always talking about that maternity glow, and Hayden definitely had it. She looked radiant in her Lorena Sarbu gown.
Best Hair: Debra Messing
Her gorgeous red locks are an unfair advantage in this category, but aside from her genetic gift the styling was perfect as well. I loved the dramatic side part and how all her hair was swept to one side. Debra won best hair, but her overall look was beautiful as well.
Worst Hair: January Jones
January Jones is a classic beauty, but her hair was a hot mess. It looked like she just hopped out of the shower and had her hairdresser throw something together in the car on the way there. Her hair appeared wet, greasy, or over hair sprayed. I hardly noticed her gown because I couldn't take my eyes off her terrible hair.
My Favorite Color of the Night: Kate Walsh
I loved Kate's pop of yellow on the contrasting red carpet. The yellow gown suited her red hair, and was a welcomed bright hue to the evening.
