I tend not to give too much thought to red carpet fashion, and to be honest the show Fashion Police on E! makes me want to throw up in my mouth a little bit, but something about the dresses Emmys last Sunday really caught my attention. Maybe it was all the obscenely bright colors. Whatever it was, I found myself looking at photos after the fact and picking out favorites, so I’ll post them here.
#1. Tina Fey (Vivienne Westwood)
I don’t love the hairstyle on its own, but altogether I thought this was gorgeous.
#2. Kat Dennings (J. Mendel)
To me this one was much less about the dress and more about the makeup. I loved loved loved her makeup.
#3. January Jones (Zac Posen)
For reasons I can’t even explain, January Jones bugs me. A lot. But I love how dramatic this dress is, especially on the model.
#4: Padma Lakshmi (Monique Lhuillier)
Also: Rico Rodriguez
He’s adorable and you know it.
Things I didn’t like:
#1. Lena Dunham (Prada)
Her makeup is good, and then the rest of her looks like one of my mother’s couch cushions.
#2. Sofia Vergara (Zuhair Murad)
This is a pageant gown. I very rarely see a pageant gown that I like.
#3. Zooey Deschanel (Reem Acra)
I have no idea why but I just don’t like it. I can’t say much more than that.
