2011 Emmy Awards Red Carpet – Part 3

Posted on September 19, 2011

One last time, celebs! Hit it!

Archie Panjabi in Angel Sanchez

Is it us or were a lot of the strapless gowns riding pretty low last night? Gorgeous color, though.

 

Cat Deeley in Monique Lhuillier

Enh. We don’t think it does much with her coloring.

Christine Baranski

This could have gone generic on us, but that midnight blue and the cap sleeves take it to fabulous.

Cobie Smulders in Alberta Ferretti

Gorgeous.

Connie Britton

It’s a pretty dress, but the color, the slit, the big hair, and the metallic shoe are all a bit much together. An up ‘do, less leg, and a black shoe would have made this more chic.

 

Drew Barrymore in Givenchy

We never saw her on the red carpet and we can’t find any pictures of her walking it, so apparently the rest of the world was as surprised as we were when she walked out in this. Did the rest of the world shout, “WHAT THE FUCK?” like we did? Because Drew, what the fuck. That is a “shit or get off the pot” dress if ever we saw one. It’s a bath mat up top, a furry mini-skirt, and then a sheer pleated skirt. Make up your mind which dress you want, Drew, BECAUSE YOU CAN’T WEAR THEM ALL AT ONCE.

Elisabeth Moss in Marchesa

It’s a pretty dress. We’re not even going to complain about the lack of color.

But we will complain about the Pat Nixon hair.

Elizabeth McGovern

It’s pretty and understated. It suits her. Hate the almost-matching clutch and really hate the lacquered hair, which is not at all flattering.

Heidi Klum in Christian Siriano

We thought this looked great when she was talking to Seacrest, but that’s because you couldn’t see the whole thing at once on the screen. Looking at it now, that ruffle is just too ridiculous.

Jenna Ushkowitz in Ghadah Paris

Upholding the Glee Girl tradition of dressing ten to fifteen years older than her age. It’s a sharp dress, though.

Julia Stiles in Georges Hobeika

Pretty color, but another one that sits too low on the bust. Her hair could have used some oomph.

Katie Holmes in Calvin Klein

This was the other WHAT THE FUCK of the night. That’s crazy girl hair. And the neckline on that dress is insanely unattractive to us. It looks like a tank top worn backwards. The rest of the dress is weirdly limp and shapeless on her. SO WHY THE HELL IS SHE SMIRKING LIKE SHE SHITS ICE CREAM?

Kerry Washington in Zuhair Murad

For yet another red dress, it’s got some interest to it. We think the skirt reads like fringe at first glance, but it’s an interesting way to do a sheer skirt.

Kristen Wiig in Zac Posen

This will be the illustration in our rule book on the page that reads, “T Lo says brunettes and redheads should never wear a dress that matches their hair exactly.” We don’t like the ombre effect and how it all points to her midsection, either.

Lena Headey

Yes, it all looks a little Puritan, especially with the clutch that looks like a Bible, but we gasped a little when we saw her. It’s so strange and starkly beautiful that we have to give her props. Very eye-catching.

Louise Roe

Neither the drape nor the color are setting us on fire. It’s a bit shapeless.

 

Martha Plimpton in Zac Posen

A total knockout of a dress in a red that no one else was wearing.

Melissa Rauch

Girl, that is just too much dress for you.

Rachel Harris

It’s a standard dress, but the glasses bring the look up to adorable. Or they would if they weren’t crooked.

Randee Heller

Don’t love the shoe, but the dress looks great on her.

Taraji P. Henson in Blumarine

Not loving it. Instead of looking sheer, it looks worn. And doesn’t her face look a little underdone?

      Was wondering if there was a shot of Randy. she looks lovely. Moss’ dress is lovely but why is she so allergic to color

      • MilaXX

        The funny thing is Kelly said she called Marchesa to request a dress and they told her they were only dressing 1 person this year, (Lea Michelle) Then Moss comes out and says her dress is Marchesa as well. Moss looks great, but her hair is horrible. Oddly 3 of the  Mad Men ladies, wore this non color.

          Almost all of the women have bad hair.  I was wondering if there’s some sort of virus that is infecting the coiffure community which causes all the stylists to give women really bad hair styles.  If so, it started first in the Garnier Hair Salon on PR.

          Elizabeth, very few people call pull off 8″ foreheads. The last one was Queen Elizabeth, the first.

          That hairdo on Katie Holmes makes her look like a pinhead.

          Kerry Washington needs a sandwhich.  Christine Baranski: class. Jenna is wearing a giant letter opener for a top.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jude-Brown/1350939326 Jude Brown

            A giant ’80s letter opener, that is.

          • http://masquedbunny.tumblr.com masquedbunny

            Louise Roe is another one with a forehead issue. Both she and Elizabeth could use some fringe or something. (And I say this as a woman who also happens to have a large forehead.)

          • MilaXX

            That hair Moss was wearing wouldn’t work on anyone under 70 no matter what shape head they might have.
            I also didn’t like Jenna’s purple smokey eye. It made her eyes look small.

      Heidi’s dress looks like it’s made of bleached coral reef.

        Or as MK might say: “It looks like a vacuum cleaner bag exploded!”

          Yes, he really was cringe-inducing wasn’t he? 

        • MilaXX

          Heidi must be a talent sucking succubus! I used to adore Seal. His made great music and his live performances were great. Now he rarely tours and his albums are just so-so. To make matter worse he’s always dressed like a lounge lizard. I want my sexy Seal back!

        She looks absolutely amazing!  I don’t think anyone else comes close.

        Also lookin’ good: Kerry Washington, Lena Headey (not everyone could do that look, but she did!), and the ever-fabulous Christine Baranski.

        I also thought the bodices were in fall-off mode.

        Christian must hate Heidi. She looks ridiculous.

        And Drew, Drew, my girl.  What on earth were you thinking???  For once, she’s in the OUT group.

      Oh my god, in 1973 my sister wore a bridesmaid dress almost EXACTLY like Cloris Leachman’s dress.

      My winners for this round: Martha Plimpton, Lena Heady, Elizabeth Moss,  Cobie Smulders, and Christine Baranski.

      I irrationally take Katie Holmes’s smirk personally. Although, maybe she does shit ice cream. I’d cut her smirk some slack if that were the case. I’d need proof, though.

        OK, why am I not seeing a photo of Cloris Leaachman? I have scrolled up and down twice and I can’t find her.  Was her photo removed for some reason?  The woman is 85 and now doing a one-woman show. On the road. Mad props to her, even if she showed up in a Snuggie.

      Lena Headey! Holy wow!  I think she looks amazing. (Can’t get over how different she looks on Game of Thrones with blond hair). She’s really selling that look.

      Martha Plimpton looked flawless. That dress was perfect on her, and it was nice to see her looking so polished.

      Julia Stiles — ok, the hair wasn’t oomphy, but you have to admit it’s a HUGE improvement over the tightly pulled back ponytail/bun she usually does. I actually thought, “Oh, pretty soft hair!” when I saw her.

      If Lucy Liu had been wearing Jenna Ushkowitz’s dress, it would have gotten a huge WERQ! from me. You know how she loves that black and white, but this would have made her so sleek instead of cutesy. As it was, though, Jenna just looked too old.

      Drew Barrymore? WTF indeed!

    • http://twitter.com/A_SmallFry AC

      Pity to see that dress on Ms. Taraji. She is such a beautiful woman and that dress does her NO favors. It just looks shapeless and boring.

        I agree..she used to look great on the red carpet. This look is way too frumpy.

      I saw Goonies last week with my kids for the first time in 20 or so years, and I was telling my kids that all those people are my age or older and they wouldn’t recognize them. And I showed my kids the photo of Martha this morning and they were all confused. They said she looks better now than she did then. And she does!

        OMG, that’s Stef from the Goonies!?! I never realized they were the same person (I haven’t seen any of Raising Hope, but I see the commercials enough to recognizer her from the show).

          I love those moments when I realize an actor I’ve been watching for umpteen months is THAT PERSON from THAT SHOW/MOVIE 10-20 years ago.  Kinda like when I realized that Knox from Dead Poets Society is the lawyer on the Good Wife.

              She was nominated for her role in Downton Abbey ( where she looks much softer than here ) but she married an Englishman and has been living and working in the UK.  In an interview she said  - I’m paraphrasing – that it was a more civilized place to age as an actress.  She’s great in Downton, rent it!

      Martha Plimpton is easily best dressed and should have gotten the WERQ over Nina Dobrov… I GASPED when she went on stage and immediately posted on FB about how I wanted the dress and boobs. She’s a strange looking woman facially and this dress brought a glamour effect we’ve never seen on her. LOVED it.

      Also, are you SURE that’s Cloris Leachman? That lady looks like a rough 50-something year old… not a young 80-something.

        They were mine, too, although now having seen Cobie Smulders I think I’m going to have to make it a three-way. Smulders’ dress isn’t quite as great as the other two, but the colour is so unusual for the red carpet and it fits her flawlessly. Maybe Plimpton and ERW share the gold and Smulders gets the silver?

      Elisabeth Moss – the dress is beautiful – but she is another example of what I keep saying about some women needing volume at the hips. 

      she appears “top heavy” , like her top half does not match her bottom half.  (both halfs look fine but together it looks :”off”

      You boys seem say that women’s hair needs more “oomph” pretty frequently in blissful ignorance of exactly how much work and product it takes to make it so. Whatever you’re imagining, it’s about three times that, and volumized hairdos usually deflate like perforated balloons after about 15 minutes, regardless of precautionary measures.

I know that Suri probably picked out this dress, and I know she’s five, but if she wants ANY respect as a stylist and fashion oracle, I hope you took her little gold high heels away from her when you got back home, and sent her to her room to sit in a corner and contemplate how nasty she made Mommy look.

      Just want to say a huge ‘thank you’ for giving me the opportunity to see all these dresses.  I didn’t get to watch the Emmys (and only would have to see the dresses anyway) so this is wonderful!  I haven’t found any other place that shows so many.  And the commentary make it all the better.

      And for my money – the dress Elizabeth Moss is wearing is the only ‘dress-the-same-color-as-her-skin-tone’ dress I’ve ever seen that actually works.  Is it because it is soooo close to her own skin tone?

      That givenchy gown was a stretch on the runway and it just didn’t work for Drew, at all.  The bodice gets very boxy on her and really disguises her figure.  I think this is a dress for more serious woman, like Tilda or Florence.

      Could one of the minions who have technical knowledge of all things dress-making explain how the shoulders and sleeves of Elizabeth Moss’ dress are made? I think the effect is so beautiful – but I don’t understand how you do it. Is it incredibly ultra sheer material with the beadwork attached?  Where does it stop and start on her arms and chest? If I look at the picture very closely, I see a couple of crinkly lines around her right elbow, and maybe one around her left – is that the material? ‘Splain please.

      “Is it us or were a lot of the strapless gowns riding pretty low last night?”. Hate to say it, but I think it’s you. I noticed you were calling gowns low that were quite appropriate. Having the girls supported but not lifted up to the armpits is appropriate. The general rule is to ensure the midpoint on the breasts are located midway between the elbow and the shoulder, except if you’re smaller, in which case they get lifted a bit higher, but again, armpits are too high.

        I also think they were too low…. For me the general rule is: If it makes your breasts look like they are not as young and high as they used to be, it’s too low!
