Best Emmy Dresses 2012

_
with 0 Comments

I'm proud to report that I watched the 64th Annual Emmy Awards ceremony in its entirety last night, so I have all of the dish on who won what, what the stars wore, and all of the trends that lit up the red carpet.

As for the winners, Homeland, Modern Family and Game Change swept up the majority of the statues, leaving former Emmy darlings like the cast of Mad Men, Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey in the dust.

As for the fashions, the color palettes were far from safe this year with bright pops of color turning every corner with vibrant oranges, yellows and blues making bold post-spring statements, plus a handful of metallic gowns thrown in for good measure. Here are my favorite looks that were all good and the worst looks that were breaking bad.

Best:

Ginnifer Goodwin made the good list this year in a showstopping orange embroidered gown by Monique Lhuillier that was anything but average and ordinary. I love that you refuse to play it safe Snow White, and this time your risk earns you a big happily ever after, at least in my book.

Citron was the lucky color of the night with a trio of the Best Actress winners sporting the shade, including a pregnant and glowing Claire Danes and Game Change's Julianne Moore, but in my opinion Modern Family's Julie Bowen pulled it off best in a gorgeous citron Monique Lhuillier column gown that complemented her hair, her tan, and her body to perfection. If they had it in white I'd want to wear it at my wedding.

Zou Bisou Bisou songstress, Jessica Paré (aka Megan from Mad Men) wore an elegant white, asymmetrical, custom-made Jason Wu gown that was simple in silhouette, stunning in its styling, earning my last top spot.

Worst:

Allow me to introduce the newest cast member of Dancing with the Stars All Stars, Mad Men's very own January Jones, who appears ready to tackle the paso doble leg of the competition in her sheer, flamenco like Zac Posen showdress. All she needs is a red rose between her teeth and Maksim Chmerkovskiy there to drag her across the floor.

Lena Dunham. I love your show (Girls). I love that you were nominated in three brilliant categories. I love that you're never afraid to show your tatas to the general public. The only thing I hate more than your not taking an Emmy statue (or two, or three) home was this sad, matronly wallflower of a Prada dress. This was your night baby, people are fighting to dress you. Fire Betty White's stylist and wear something a little more "Fun" next time, taking a cue from your boyfriends' band.
