Update-I Loved the Primetime Emmys…I Hated a Lot of the Dresses

August 29, 2010

Okay, I am just going to give it all to you…  

Jimmy Fallon did an alright job as host of the Primetime Emmys. The opening could have been better. I should have known they would do a play off of Glee. Not all that great, though. And the weird guitar and singing bits after each commercial break. Jeez, I was done with it.  

Let me start with the Love’s, of course. There unfortunately weren’t all that many to be Lovin’ this year. Very disappointing, but the ones that were great-were great!  

Kyra Sedgwick & Kevin Bacon


Julia Louis-Dreyfus


Mariska Hargitay


These lead actresses all looked wonderful in their uncomplicated gowns. Kyra Sedgwick looked beautiful in her very simple wine colored dress. It flowed nicely around her, though it had an odd look to it like it wanted to be velvet but was more broomstick-style fabric. Mariska Hargitay was amazing as always. It was probably the simplest dress she had ever worn, and she looked wonderful in it. It was a corset style top, of course, with an uncomplicated train in a pale pink color. It was just gorgeous on her.  Julia Louis-Dreyfus showed some skin in a black dress that had a stomach cut-out covered in black mesh. It was a sophisticated style that had a little flash, and looked just amazing on her.  

Lea Michele


Eva Longoria-Parker


Lea Michele, in Oscar de la Renta, looked great in her age appropriate dress. It was navy blue and looked great against her skin color-and you know I am not frou-frou, but I didn’t mind the bottom of her dress, it was actually kind of cute. The other frou-frou I didn’t mind was Eva Longoria’s. Her Robert Rodriguez dress was a tight corset type on top, and covered in roses all over the bottom. It was a little weird, I do admit that, but on her it looked amazing.  

Claire Danes  

Kelly Osbourne


Claire Danes in Armani Prive looked amazing. The dress looked like a crystallized dream, and I would recommend not drinking anything because it would be hard to go to the bathroom! Kelly Osbourne looked fabulous in her black Tony Ward Couture gown. In her new slimmed down frame, the kimono-esque top and skinny bottom with a diamond pattern could do nothing for her but flatter.  

The Hates…were ugly, and abnormal, and really, really Hate worthy.  

Lauren Graham




Oh Lauren Graham. She can be pretty random with her dresses, but dang did she miss the mark big time this year. Her Yigal Azrouel black and white ensemble, because you can’t really call it a dress, looked terrible-it was more like an unfinished dress with the white part just tossed there and then stitched quickly in place. Jewel also looked terrible in her Zuhair Murad pink dress which looked like it could be from the 1800’s and not in a good way. The color completely washed her out, the bow was too young for her and it was really just a wedding-dress-tiered-mess.  

Emily Deshanel


Jane Krakowski


Emily Deschanel looked beautiful, but her dress had weird fans all over it. The color though against her skin and her hair looked fabulous, but thank goodness I didn’t know her designer because it was probably someone who should have done a better job. Jane Krakowski looked weird in her Escada gown that had a droopy flower looking thing on the shoulder-and she had one huge hip, with like extra fabric just laying there. It was like she pulled the plug on the oomph of the dress, leaving just blah.  

January Jones


Christina Hendricks


Okay what was with the Mad Men women dressing like birds? January Jones-oh man, that dress was just plain ugly. Her poor Versace, it looked like a blue-peacock and it wasn’t a cute one either. Um, tiny cups much? Why do women who have small busts accentuate that by putting small cones on them? Really, there was no way to save that dress. Side note-what was with her hair? She couldn’t have combed it?  And jeez, Christina Hendricks missed the mark completely. Her feathery Zac Posen gown was just wrongly weird. She looked like she was trying to be a lilacish bird, with the feathers on the shoulders. I don’t even know if the dress could have been saved by taking the feathers off.  

Anna Paquin


Carrie Preston


Rutina Wesley


The True Blood female cast all looked terrible. Anna Paquin in Alexander McQueen, looked like a gladiator also-another bomb for this poor designer. Carrie Preston looked terrible also, in a weird red and blue leopard print gown. And then there is Rutina Wesley. Really, if this was one of your first Emmy Awards, why would you come in a silver-zebra-type gown? It seemed that they cast got together and decided to try and be weird-at least I hope so because the only alternative is that they just have horrible style…
