Darlings, it occurred to us recently during an editorial meeting that we are perhaps getting a bit too used to color on the red carpet and that we should praise its appearance more, lest it disappear from the backs of our starlets again, leaving us only with a weepy trail of dresses the color of wadded-up pantyhose. We spent so much time in the earlier years of our red carpet blogging (Jesus Christ, that sounds weird) bemoaning the lack of color in the dresses, that we fear our 2009 selves will get wind of how blasé we’ve become in the face of one brilliantly colored starlet after another and time-travel here to slap us righteously across our faces.
So as Miss Emmy steps out in some brightly colored spring frocks, we felt she deserved the spotlight, just for… well, stepping out in some brightly colored spring frocks. Cute ones, too.

We don’t trust the colors in these pics because they look pretty washed out all over, but our first response was that this wasn’t her color, cute as the dress is. We’d need to see it in person to get a ruling on that one, we think. Either way, it’s an adorable dress. A little Betty Draper-ish (that skirt doesn’t need to be quite so full), but she’s pulling it off. She’s got the conjunctivitis eye makeup, though.

Sorry. Felt it had to be said, is all.

Darlings, let’s all head to Studio 54 with Liza and Halston for Easter dinner! We love it. She looks fresh, elegant, and ready to party all at the same time. And it’s a great color on her. And she doesn’t look like she was punched in both eyes by a baby, so there’s that.
