There were at least twelve looks I adored at the Emmys last night, but I am pretty set on picking a top three. So here they are, in no particular order:
Kelly Osbourne. There is so much about this look that I loved (including the matching hair!). I loved the dark lavender hue of her Zac Posen gown, which nicely represented a transition from summer to fall. I loved that she didn’t totally bling out, which would have been expected for an awards show; those few understated items in black and silver gave this dress her own spin and were completely in line with this season’s gothic trend.
Tina Fey. Whoa. This Vivienne Westwood gown was everything good: chic, glamorous, and hottt—I could go on. Plus, it was very much on-trend, which, in my book, always bumps up a red carpet look; both the burgundy color of the gown and the baroque details are supremely fashionable right now. Nicely done, Ms. Fey.
Ginnifer Goodwin. Wow, what a showstopper. Her tangerine Monique Lhuillier gown was unlike anything else on the red carpet, and I love her for it. How perfect were her Christian Louboutin pumps? And her super-simple adornment—costume earrings, boxy clutch, mod makeup—made her one of the most successfully styled looks last night.
Some honorable mentions:
Emily VanCamp. She looked great in this J.Mendel gown, but as much as I love an undone look, this was a little too undone for me. I didn’t mind the casual hair and natural makeup, but it left something to be desired—sparkly earrings, perhaps?—so that it didn’t look like she went surfing in the morning and then just managed to make it to the show on time.
Jane Levy. I almost put her in my top three, but Kelly Osbourne beat her out only because this could have been last year’s dress. Don’t get me wrong, the Pamella Roland gown was gorge and total perfection next to Jane’s skin and hair, but when it came down to choosing one over the other, I chose the look that felt more right this minute.
Lily Rabe. Amazing, amazing Tadashi Shoji gown, sad, sad hair. This dress could have easily made it into my top three had it been styled better. But she got my attention and I’ll be looking to see what she does next time.
