Emmy Awards and wow, those dresses!

Sadly, I missed the Emmy Awards the other night but there was no escaping the recap of the dresses the next day! I have been stunned and amazed by the beautiful gowns (and the not so beautiful) and thought I’d share some of my favs with you all today.

This first one is Glee’s Lea Michele in a navy blue Oscar de la Renta flamenco dress. Love Glee. Love Lea and LOVE that dress.

On some lists Mad Men‘s January Jones took the prize for the evening’s best dressed but on others, it was all about, “what was she thinking?” What are YOU thinking about this bright blue Versace gown, which was shorter in the front and longer in the back with snow cone cups? Oh – and she’s sporting a million-dollars Cartier diamonds just for fun.

Kelly Osbourne is all grown up and looking fine in a chic black Tony Ward gown. What happened to the punk hair and baby fat? I think she looks great!

I’m a HUGE Kyra Sedgwick fan. The Closer is at the top of my list for all time fav shows and I was so glad to see her get the Emmy, BUT, I’m not so sure about this dress. Love the rich wine color and even the fabric but the styling? Eh. She looks a little lost in that dress, don’t ya think?

I wouldn’t have recognized Emily Deschanel, everyone’s favorite forensic anthropologist on Bones, had her name not been posted beneath this photo. Crepe and purple. Hummm

There were mixed reviews on Tina Fey’s patterned silver gown. I thought she looked great but others, not so much

Modern Family’s latin bombshell, Sofia Vergara looked hot, hot hot in this Carolina Herrera gown – but once again, the dress was on at least one ‘worst dress’ list

The general consensus is that Mindy Kaling (The OFFICE) could have ditched the 1950’s style prom dress. Maybe the comedienne was attempting to make a funny statement not a fashion statement?

I must admit I have NO beef with Rita Wilson’s appearance on the worst dressed list. The Austin Powers-esque Prada features dangling shells and crystals and Lucite heels. And that hair? In a word: UG.

How about Anna Paquin, everyone’s favorite vampire lovin’ Sokie Stackhouse from True Blood in the roman soldier-esque Alexander McQueen gown. I think she looks pretty hot!

Okay. So that was fun, right? But even more fun is this video of the opening number where, in a parody of Glee, Jimmy Falon (and several Glee cast members and special guests) raise the roof with this fun and funny production.


Enjoy and tell me what you think about both the video and the dresses!
