2011 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Posted on September 12, 2011

Darlings, it was the 2011 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and we don’t have time for his nonsense! We’ve got fashion shows to get to this morning! Hit it, celebrities!

Alison Brie

It’s cute and sparkly and that suits her to a T. Wouldn’t have recommended black pumps, though.

Ariana Grande

Stop that.

Cara Buono

It’s a bit of a standard goddess gown, but that color looks great on her.

Cat Deeley

Another great color, but we REALLY hate the side cutouts.

Chris Colfer

Sigh. Are you sure you’re gay, Chris? Because THAT is NOT how the gays dress. WAY too shiny.

Clare Grant

They’re not THAT perky, honey. Get a bra.

Cloris Leachman

Credit where it’s due: She’s like 106 years old and she can still rock the cleavage.

Idris Elba

You are insanely hot, Idris Elba, but we can’t tell what your suit looks like BECAUSE YOU’VE SHOVED YOUR HANDS IN YOUR POCKETS LIKE AN 8-YEAR-OLD GETTING SCOLDED. RAARH!

Janie Bryant

We don’t normally like such washed-out colors but this looks very pretty on her.

Jeremy Davies

It’s the “Schmemmys,” as Kathy Griffin calls them, so a certain amount of leeway is to be expected, but this is just a bit too quirky for our tastes.

Jesse Spencer

Cute, but the jacket and the pants both look too big on him.

Julie Stiles

White isn’t the best choice for her because she’s naturally pale, but she looks pretty sharp. Or she would if this wasn’t pulling on her. A less bridal shoe would have been nice. And the tight hair isn’t her best friend.

Kathy Griffin

Why, Miss Kathy. This is downright demure for you. But if those are satin peeptoe platforms, we take it all back. NO PLATFORMS WITH GOWNS, LADIES.

Kiernan Shipka

Adorable, sophisticated and age-appropriate. Well done, Sally Draper.

Kristin Chenoweth

Because of her teeny-tiny size, she hasn’t always been successful finding dresses that looked good on her, but she looks adorable here.

Loretta Devine

Sweet Jesus on a Breadstick. It’s kind of an interesting dress (except for the rosary beads hanging off her skirt), and it suits her, but for the love of GOD, Loretta, WEAR A BRA.

Maria Canals-Barrera

Standard.

Mary McDonnell

Standard (but pretty).

Randee Heller

That’s not the greatest dress in the world and it’s certainly not the best way to pose when you’ve got the sun behind you, but we just wanted to point out, in case you didn’t know, that Randee played Don Draper’s secretary, Miss Blankenship, in this past season of Mad Men. Seriously. Now, THAT was some amazing costuming and makeup.

 

Rebecca Romijn

We love it just for being an interesting print. She looks great.

Rich Sommer

Adorable. But get your hands out of your pockets, Dimples.

      Cat Deeley looks AMAZING. Hubba hubba.

        I agree! She is such a stunner, I love her.

        Yes!  I love to catch “SYTYCD” just to see her strut her amazing long legs out in some great little frock.  And she comes off pretty nice and real too.

      Sally Draper FTW.

      • http://twitter.com/ILikeShiny Cindi Williams

        Agreed. She looks more elegant and sophisticated than most of the ladies on the carpet.

        • Hayley Casarotto

          Did anyone see her entry on The Coveteur?  Adorable, sophisticated and age-appropriate is ALL SHE DOES.  I wish I had been like that at her age, instead of idolizing Blossom.

          • Anonymous

            She looks adorable in that blue plaid Pap d’Anjo and I love it that she’s a fan of Peter Pan collars. Love her closets too. And hey, Mayim Bialik has a PhD in neuroscience. You could have idolized a lot worse.

        I know!! How freakin’ cute is she??

      i love that sally draper and kristen chenoweth basically look the same size.

        I think they ARE the same size. Sally might even be taller.

      Idris Elba has totally distracted me from doing any work this morning. 

    • scottyf

      Dear Idris Elba,

      You are hot AND talented.

      If you need to put your hands in some pockets, mine are available.

      Love,
      scottyf

      (and before y’all go off screaming to Bert–he is ALWAYS invited to join in)

      • http://twitter.com/ILikeShiny Cindi Williams

        I don’t normally like sloppy seconds, but I’ll make an exception. Now it’s up for me to decide if I meant Idris Elba, scottyf, or Bert… ;-)

          Be prepared: there may be a small waiting-line about to form. 
          However, I could be legitimately distracted by the Romijn dress. Wouldn’t be the first time that a burst of pure  sundrenched Pretty distracted me. *g*

        You can have your Idris, Scotty…while you’re distracted, I’ll be over in the corner with Shemar Moore.  And his hands.

          Shemar Moore is fine. I love his Eyebrows of Justice. But Idris is a particularly fabulous specimen. And I always thought he was even hotter on The Wire when he’d wear his glasses.

      Jeremy Davies is dressed like a leprechaun.

      “Tlo said: NO PLATFORMS WITH GOWNS, LADIES.”

      LOL, I’m guessing she’s going with the platforms because she is so teeny-tiny, and she figured they wouldn’t show with that dress. I met her once and I think she’s only about 5 feet tall.

      Randee Heller: woah. my first thought was: ‘heh, that is one funky grandma.’ but i would have never guessed that she played miss blankenship!

      Nice to see Mad Men folks. Janie Bryant looked especially nice. I usually dislike the pales too, but with her rich brown hair it works.

      Jeremy Davies is made of quirk. I would expect nothing less from him! Still, I hope he took the hat off when he got inside.

    • Jennifer Coleman

      Thanks for the Mad Men a-palooza, guys, I’ve been experiencing some serious withdrawal for a month.
      You think Loretta Devine’s dress is interesting? She looks like she’s off to somebody’s family reunion fundraiser cabaret, not the freekin’ award show. And she’d still get flack for the wonky boobs. No excuse for that look.

      • Anonymous

        I agree!  That dress isn’t interesting, it’s ugly.

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Breda Smith

      These photos were taken from the wrong side of the red carpet. I mean, yeah, they’re not all squinty, but I can’t recognize ANYONE. Not Jesse Spencer (seriously, had to look about 4 times, and I used to LOVE House), not Julia Stiles, Rebecca Romijn was just a guess, and I definitely thought Cara Buono was Laura Bell Bundy and Clare Grant was Olivia Wilde with some REALLY poor decisions made.

      • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

        Ohhhhhhhh. That’s who Jesse Spencer is. OUCH. Yeah, I never would have known.

        • Anonymous

          Yeah, don’t like the short hair on Chase.

      Kiernan Shipka – I could not tell whether this was a serious compliment – I assumed “Sally Draper” was a 40 year old woman when you said age appropriate.

    • Anonymous

      I like seeing short dresses show up.  And for God’s sake…will someone take Baby Gay Chris under their wing and teach him how to dress?

    • Anonymous

      A lot of standard but pretty.  i disagree with you on Cat Deely – she rocks those side cutouts just fine.  I actually know very few of these people but that Marie Canals Barrera is working some big ass hair.

    • http://www.facebook.com/cruz.alejandra Alejandra Cruz

      love you guys…but why you gotta make everyone wear a bra?  freedom from bras is a wonderful thing!

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        Well sure, in real life, but not when you’re being photographed on the red carpet and your saggy boobs are the only thing people can concentrate on!!  ;)

    • Terence Ng

      Ugh, getting flashes of Idris Elba…How is a bitch supposed to work while fanning himself?

    • http://profiles.google.com/dchockeyguy Trevor Burroughs

      I don’t know who about 75% of these people are!  I’m so out of touch.  However, I guess this is the bra-less event.

    • Margot Brose

      Kristin Chenoweth needs to investigate bangs and less-bleached hair. Otherwise she looks like an alien wearing a Jessica Simpson wig.

        She also appears to be wearing jelly shoes.

      On first (and second) glance, I thought Ariana Grande was Brittney Murphy. Eek.

        Me too! In Clueless, before the makeover.

          Yup, that’s who I saw, too. So strange, and sad.

      I don’t love Kathy’s gown. It looks too big and like she’s wearing a big old nightgown. I’ve always like Randee Heller, but feel this dress ages her dreadfully.

      Rebecca Romijn just owned it. I thought she looked stunning.

      I love Loretta Divine as an actress and singer, but good mugly googly, she cannot dress to save her life.

      Cat Deeley. Beautiful. Gorgeous color and love the side cutouts.

      Holy Cleavage Phyllis!  Cloris Leachman has some cojones to wear this low-cut at her age. Congrats to you if you’ve been rubbing your chest with sunscreen and baby oil all these years just so you could do this!

      Ohh, Kiernan Shipka is growing up. Please stay this adorable and appropriate just a few years longer.

      Rebecca Romijn, interesting print? I’ve backed quilts with that print. Just saying’.

      Would never have known Randee Heller was Miss Blankenship. Amazing!

    • xadie other

      Ahem, weren’t you just bemoaning the fact that tie-dye never looks high-end? That Rebecca Romijn dress kind of looks tie-dye to me… and also very pretty!

    • Hayley Riemer

      Ariana Grande looks like Ty in Clueless before they give her the make-over.

      Ariana Grande…yeah, I’d bang her.

      I agree on most points except:
      1. Mary McDonnell looked awesome! Come on – that dress is way beyond standard. Fits her to a T!
      2. Julia Stiles looks horror-able! All I could think of is that she decided to get married that afternoon and that’s all she could find to wear.  Hate it all and she is such a beautiful girl. The horror. The horror.

      Jeremy Davies is practically an icon of ‘quirky,’ so I think he looks pretty adorable.  Either get rid of the hat or change shoes, and you’re pretty near the JD version of perfect.

      it’s been so hot here the past couple weeks i cant even imagine wearing most of those things in the evening for fifteen minutes, much less in the afternoon. an uncomfortable outing for all of these people, certainly, in at least that one special way.

      “We don’t normally like such washed-out colors but this looks very pretty on her.”….the gown is by Elizabeth Mason Couture, and in fact it is the image that is washed out, not the gown which is actually shimmering Gold and Platinum chiffon. We think she looks FABULOUS.
