I was totally blown away by the fashion that came down the red carpet last night at the 2012 Primetime Emmy’s Awards. Color! Prints! Sequins! There was barely a plain black dress in sight.
Honestly, I don’t think choosing the best-dressed starlets has ever been this hard. But after a lot of time and consideration, I was eventually able to narrow down my favorite gowns.
There appears to be some sorta unspoken rule about wearing a printed dress to an award show so I was really happy to see a few actresses rocking florals this year. This one was by far the best (looks almost like a mosaic). I don’t even know who Ariel Winter is, but props to her for taking a risk opting for a unique dress by lesser known designer (Katharine Kidd from L.A). I would have gone with a slightly fancier, not so matchy-matchy shoe, but this girl is only 14-years-old so I’ll cut her some slack.
Who knew blue would be so popular this year? This aqua, sequin-covered Georges Hobeika gown is so damn pretty that I’m willing to overlook her inappropriately dramatic makeup and hair (seriously, why would you do a smoky eye with this dress?). I also feel like the shape isn’t the most flattering on her body since it only makes her breasts look smaller and her hips look wider. Nevertheless, Julianne looks like a beautiful couture mermaid. She also gets additional points for being the only actress to wear a sweetheart neckline last night that her boobs didn’t spill out of.
Holy cannoli. As stunning as I thought this sari-inspired Marchsa gown looked in photos, when Hayden came out to present an award, it literally made me gasp. I proceeded to leer at the dress with my mouth open every second she remained on camera. I didn’t even notice the gold leaf detailing until seeing it up close. It may be one of my favorite red-carpet dresses of all time. And while Hayden has a tendency to go overboard with the self-tanner, I feel like she’s perfectly golden this time around. The simple tight bun was also a great choice. Doing anything that detracts from this gown would be an absolute crime.
