Red was the color of the night so we show no red in our showcase of Emmy 2011 fashion. The fashion was, for the most part, subdued and in good taste. Some fashion choices deserve some comment with just a touch of snark.
The Look Most Like Attending a British Royal Wedding
Phoebe Price, Good Samaritans. What’s with the hat?
Aubrey Plaza, Parks and Recreation
Gwyneth Paltrow, Glee. Even though she can’t sing.
Actress Dressed Looking Most Like Me
Margo Martindale, Justified. Well I didn’t say I was proud of it.
Seriously, Best Dress
Eva La Rue, CSI: Miami
Carrie Ann Inaba, Dancing With The Stars' Carrie Ann is one of my all time fave competitive reality TV judges.
Christine Hendricks, Mad Men. It took some work to get those babies hiked up that high.
Steven Cojocaru, Entertainment Tonight. It’s a guy and he’s a fashion critic. Heh.
Best Male Haircut
David Boreanaz, Bones. Maybe you hadda be there but his haircut was neat, quirky, trend-setting.
Bonnie Bentley, Heroes. It looks like the flag of a South American country.Actress Most Always Looking Sophisticated No Matter Her Age
Christine Baranski,The Good Wife. I always admire Baranski’s style whether she plays the good guy or the bad guy.
Absolute Worst Hair Style
Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation. Dear Lord somebody took an egg beater to her hair then pinned it back.
Most Looking Like a Bridesmaid
Zuhair Murad, Fashion Designer. Fashion Designer?
Worst Fitting Dress That Could Have Been Very Nice
Olivia Munn, The Daily Show. Too loose at the top, too tight around the hips. Looks like a last minute dress grab to me.
Gretchen Mol, Rounders. All around All-American, pretty, stands out.
Best Plus Sized Fit and Style
Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly. Making big beautiful.
Most Looking Like a Dress from Star Wars
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife. I love the show and think Marguiles is smolderingly attractive but this dress is too far out.
The Dress That Only Heidi Klum Could Pull Off
Heidi Klum, Project Runway. Only Heidi could wear that thing and look fashion forward instead of dumb. It’s a project from her fashion reality series as I understand.
Paz de la Huerta, Enter the Void. I know it’s no longer of need to have shoes the same color as the dress but come on, maybe a white pair with the pink? Perhaps a glittering silver? But blue shoes with a very pink dress?
Kathy Griffin, Comedienne. She looks nice enough but somebody tell her to start eating again! She’s way too thin!
