2011 Emmy Awards Red Carpet – Part 3
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.
This could have gone generic on us, but that midnight blue and the cap sleeves take it to fabulous.
Cobie Smulders in Alberta Ferretti
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.
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.
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.
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.
Girl, that is just too much dress for you.
It’s a standard dress, but the glasses bring the look up to adorable. Or they would if they weren’t crooked.
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?
