2011 Emmy Awards, best & worst dressed

best dressed:

Nina Dobrev the 22 year old star of The Vampire Diaries looked exquisite on Sunday’s 63rd primetime emmy awards. She wore an incredible perfectly fitted gown by Donna Karan that really showed off her jaw dropping physique. Something I really love about this outfit is the choker piece she wore from Neil Lane. Chokers are a regular jewellery piece on red carpets but she really wore it well. I did watch the Fashion Police Emmy Special yesterday and Kelly Osborne seemed to disagree greatly. However like the choker or not there is no denying she looks outstanding from head to toe. She topped it all off with some Brian Atwood shoes and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Having never watched Modern Family before I was unfamiliar with Sarah Hyland until I saw her Lea Michelle impersonation on Fashion Police (seems I watch this show a lot haha). I think she is a beautiful young girl and these photos do not do her justice. She wore a beautiful custom made Christian Siriano dress, Lorraine Schwartz jewellery and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. I think the dress is perfect for her and being 20 years old completely age appropriate which I always personally look out for on the Red Carpet.

Games of Thrones star Lena Headley was definitely the dark horse of the night. In an all black Alexander McQueen long-sleeved gown, a Judith Leiber clutch, Wilfredo Rosado earrings and florescent pink Brian Atwood shoes i feel Lena really took a risk. In all black she could have easily looked gothic however I think she hit the classic look perfectly. The black nail may have been a little too much however.

worst dressed:

Julianna Margulies, Heidi Klum & Zooey Deschanel were my worst dressed of the night. Zoeey Deschanel was my ultimate disappointment, in my opinion she is one of the coolest women in Hollywood and I always look forward to her looks but this Monique Lhuillier pink floor length strapless did not do anything for me, I do not like the red and pink together and it seems too long. It might have been ok as a shorter dress with a different colour ribbon but even then I would expect more from Zooey Deschanel at the Emmys. I liked the original concept of Julianna’s Giorgio Armani Privé gown however I hated the length and the material was really thick and seemed like a blanket and she ended up looking a bit like a strange mermaid. Heidi Klum always looks stunning and I am in love with her Christian Louboutins. however her Christian Siriano one of a kind dress was too much.

I loved Nina's dress. She is a beautiful young woman. However, no red on the red carpet! And if you're going to violate the cardinal rule then you better bring it and just showing up as Barbie won't cut it.

Oh, gosh. Nina's look is definitely my favourite out of these - her figure is AMAZING and totally accentuated by that incredible dress!

JeanneS said...

Yeah I do kinda agree with the queen of hearts, no red on the red carpet.. :/ I wasn't excited with her appearance but I was excited with the black appearance, she was wonderful! Zoey Deschanel? Well it's her style so I am not going to blame her for that *hideous* dress... :/

I agree with all your picks. Esp Zooey. She is one of my favorites but she NEVER takes a risk on the red carpet. I have seen her be a "jackie" for years 00 but now I would love to see her as a "Marilyn" :)

Danielle said...

You definitely chose the best and the worst! I am really disappointed with Zoey as well, she is definitely one of my favourite Hollywood stars!
