Fashion Favorites: The 2010 Emmy Awards

I am so glad that I decided to forgo my usual Sunday night line-up (True Blood, Mad Men, Hung, Entourage…don’t worry, they’re on my DVR) in favor of the Emmys. Jimmy Fallon did such a great job hosting. He was so funny and engaging and I absolutely loved the intro that he did with the cast of Glee, Tina Fey, Jon Hamm, Betty White, and Tim Gunn. It was a thoroughly entertaining show and I was so glad to see so many of my favorite shows represented. Mad Men, Modern Family, Glee, Nurse Jackie, and Top Chef all walked away with awards last night.

But now on to more pressing matters, like red carpet fashion! Did anyone else think there weren’t very many stars on the red carpet? Anyhow, my favorite look of the night goes to Glee star, Lea Michele who wore an elegant Oscar de la Renta gown in navy, which happened to be the color of the night. I thought her hair and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry complemented the dress beautifully and kept the look youthful. She looked so lovely!

emmy claire {Claire Danes had my second favorite look of the evening. She looked stunning in this perfectly-fitted Armani PrivĂ© gown in a shimmering gold color. She has just enough of a tan to complement the dress and her hair and make-up look great. Angela from My So Called Life has come rather far, hasn’t she?}

emmy jayma {Jayma Mays, the actress who plays the conservative Emma Pilsbury on Glee had one of my favorite looks of the evening in this ruched, navy Burberry gown. I love the gold jewelry she paired with it. The sexy look is quite a departure from her character!}

{Oscar de la Renta was well-represented at the Emmys this year. I thought this Oscar gown looked fantastic on Tina and I love her hair this way.}

{I was so glad that Top Chef won for Outstanding Reality Show! I have followed it since it’s first season and it is still my favorite reality competition. Padma Lakshmi looked stunning in this navy Carolina Herrera gown. I love the ethnic-looking necklace she paired with it. Does this woman ever look bad? She’s so gorgeous!}

{I’m not Kristen Wiig’s biggest fan. She seems to do the same annoying character over and over on SNL, just in different costumes. Having said that, I really liked her gown last night. The print is beautiful, as is the shape, and I don’t mind the shoulder detail. Does anyone know who designed this dress?}

emmy january {So, on to the leading ladies from Mad Men. I must confess, I didn’t love January Jones’ or Christina Hendricks’ looks last night. I appreciate January’s gusto for making such a big statement in her electric blue Versace gown, but I didn’t like it. For such a pretty girl, I feel like she seldom gets it right on the red carpet.}

{Christina Hendricks opted for a dusty lavender Zac Posen gown. Again, I don’t really like the look. The color is sad and the fit looks a lot more flattering here than it did on camera. Did you like January’s or Christina’s red carpet looks last night?}
