I just finished watching the 2011 Emmy Awards, and I gotta say that it was a pretty good show.
But, I have one question: Why didn't Steve Carell win?! Seriously?!
Besides that disappointing fact though, I was really happy to see a lot of beautiful dresses and gorgeous looks from the many stars that attended the annual awards show.
Let's start with:
Kate Winslet -
She looked beautiful in her plunging, red Elie Saab gown and Cartier jewels.
And she won an Emmy for Mildred Pierce!
Did you guys know that she is one award away from being an EGOT winner? Yup, all she needs is a Tony Award, and I'm pretty sure Kate Winslet can do it! ;)
Evan Rachel Wood -
One of my favorite looks - she looked absolutely gorgeous! Her Elie Saab gown is a perfect fit. Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, Judith Lieber pewter clutch, and Art Deco-inspired Fred Leighton jewels completed her look.
Katie Holmes -
Some fashion critics think this look is way too casual and boring, but I think Katie looked beautiful. I like how she kept it simple, while standing out at the same time.
Plus, I love the color of her custom Calvin Klein Collection silk crepe cinched waist dress designed by Francisco Costa.
Jayma Mays -
She looks so pretty! And her Zuhair Murad dress is pretty too!
I think it is perfect for her. :)
The hem of the dress looks a little crooked and long though (probably from when it was altered), but that's okay, it didn't do anything to hurt her whole ensemble anyway.
Sofia Vergara -
When does she not look gorgeous on the red carpet?!
She looked stunning in this coral Vera Wang mermaid gown with exposed tulle. Sofia also wore Casadei heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Aren't her emerald earrings just gorgeous?!
Emily Blunt -
I loooove Emily Blunt! I think her look is flawless!
She looked beautiful in her midnight blue Elie Saab dress.
Her hair + makeup = absolute perfection!
Julia Stiles -
Yay!!! I am so happy to see Julia wear this lavender lace Georges Hobeika gown with delicate ruching and a trumpet hem. She looked polished and beautiful!
Martha Plimpton -
I didn't get the details of her ensemble, but I think her dress fit her perfectly. Her hair and makeup are also just right.
Julie Bowen -
She looked fantastic in her low-cut Oscar de la Renta dress!
Christine Baranski -
I loved how stylish, classic, and age-appropriate this look is! She looked perfect in her custom Zac Posen midnight blue silk faille double lapel gown. I hope I look that amazing when I am her age!
Lea Michele -
There isn't anything new about this look. Lea Michele looks good, but she's had better red carpet days. I do like the cowl back of this red Marchesa dress, though. The layered sleeves and mermaid silhouette give this look a romantic touch.
I wish she put her hair up to emphasize the details of her beautiful dress.
Gwyneth Paltrow -
This is definitely a love it or hate it look. Some people hated it a lot -- one even said Gwyneth looked like she's wearing a lamp! I kinda see that, haha. ;)
But I do think that only Gwyneth can pull off this exotic two-piece Emilio Pucci dress. Even though the dress isn't a big winner, I still think she's fantastic, and I love her!
Kristen Wiig -
I wasn't sure if I liked this look or not when I first saw it. It's kinda growing on me, though. I think she is rocking this Zac Posen earth tone ombre gown. The plunging neckline and Grecian draping add to the dress' charm.
Minka Kelly -
I am not sure about this lace Dior gown either... there's just something kinda off with it, but I don't know what it is. Nevertheless, I think Minka looks beautiful, and I love how she wore simple diamond drop earrings.
Juliana Margulies -
Ummm, this Armani Prive gown with a crystal-adorned bodice is not my favorite. And I also think the hem is a bit too long.
Heather Morris -
Okay, I don't get what's up with this gown. Too many ruffles! I feel like the designer didn't finish sewing it or something. :/
Rachael Taylor -
I couldn't find the details of this look either, but I do know that it is not the best Emmy's look. The color of the dress plus her skin tone plus the white background plus her platinum hair ended up washing her out. And I think she looks considerably different from how she looked like as a doctor on Grey's Anatomy -- she's lost quite a lot of weight, I think.
Kerry Washington -
A lot of fashion critics loved this look, but I am not loving the bottom part of this red sequined Zuhair Murad gown. I like how she went daring with the dress' sheer skirt, but somehow it doesn't work for me. And the hem of the dress kinda scares me. :/
Heidi Klum -
She is usually a red carpet favorite of mine, but not this time. :/
I like the top part of this custom Christian Siriano dress, but not the bottom part!
It kinda looks like fungi or a mushroom or algae of some sort grew on the dress or something... sorry, I don't know how else to explain it. ;P
That's about it for my 2011 Emmy Awards fashion recap! :)
