FASHION REVIEW: 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards   Leave a comment

Wow, TV’s biggest night is officially over. As we say hello the the new TV season (and goodbye to the previous one), the Emmys are the perfect transition from the former to the latter. I managed to do well with my predictions (15/25, then 20/25 if you count spoilers). I also won the Goldderby Emmy Prediction game! Yay for me! Anyway, here is my mandatory annual fashion recap. Last year, Dianna Agron was my top choice for Best Dressed. Let’s take a look at those who stand out from the red carpet for this year!

16. Kristin Wiig in Zac Posen

Wiig’s chocolate brown dress with a very plunging neckline is a very big improvement from her past two Emmy dresses. For once, she finally dresses like a movie star.

15. Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano

Hyland who’s inside a brawling controversy (with Lea Michele’s fans) still looked awesome in this coral ensemble reminiscent of her “older sister”‘ Mila Kunis’s SAG dress.

14. Kate Winslet in Elie Saab

Winslet’s dress has a been-there-done-that feel and is reminiscent of her blue SAG dress in 2009. However, she still looks every inch a movie star in this red Elie Saab ensemble.

13. Cat Deeley in Monique Lhuillier

The Emmy nominee matches her dress with a messy do which compliments the patterns of this beautiful Monique Lhuillier creation.

12. Jennifer Carpenter in Tony Ward

First year after her divorce with co-star Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter sizzles the red carpet with a Tony Ward dress that highlight that leg of hers.

11. Aubrey Plaza in Juan Carlos Obando

Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza channels old school Hollywood in this white Juan Carlos Obando dress that is something that April Ludgate will never wear.

10. Christine Baranski in Zac Posen

After wearing a tux last year, Baranski plays more with her feminine side wearing this elegant Zac Posen outfit that is fit for an Emmy winner.

9. Gwyneth Paltrow in Pucci

This year’s winner of the love-it-ot-jhate-it award, I’m impressed by Gwyneth’s Pucci choice that works well in a laid back ceremony such as the Emmys.

8. Mireille Enos in Zuhair Murad

Enos took the time to change her sweaters and move on with this red Zuhair Murad ensemble that made her look like a TV star of her own rights.

7. Lea Michele in Marchesa

Sporting a new bangs and looking slick as ever, Lea Michele actually looks a lot better if she stays away from the train dresses she love to wear. This red Marchesa dress is a good example.

6. Connie Britton in Maria Lucia Hohan

Best Actress nominee Connie Britton shies away from her housewife role and is vavavoom in this red gown that impressively shows all her assets.

5. Anna Torv in Vera Wang

Looking like a combination of Cate Blanchett and Kate Hudson, Anna Torv’s black Vera Wang outfit looks very good on her. She could have chosen a better shoes, but I wouldn’t complain much.

4. Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan

Dobrev’s dress might be too busy for others but I guess that the overall aim of the dress is to highlight her figures, which it successfully showed.

3. Evan Rachel Wood in Elie Saab

Another one channeling old school Hollywood is Evan Rachel Wood who’s sporting a shorter do and is literally a glowing figure in this Elie Saab ensemble.

2. Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang

For once, Sofia did not resort to showing her cleavage and still looked every inch sexy in this coral Vera Wang dress.

1. Martha Plimpton in Zac Posen

And my choice for this year’s Best Dressed is Martha Plimpton. This shining shimmering red Zac Posen gown she wore will not give you any hint that she plays a white trash on a Greg Garcia show. LOL.

Now, who are your choices? I’d love to hear it. 🙂
