I, like most of you, curled up with a beverage and some snacks to watch the 2009 Primetime Emmys red carpet and I have to admit…I was completely underwhelmed for the most part. Have we frightened the Hollywood stars out of taking risks on the red carpet? While we ponder that, let’s look at the best-dressed and some trends spotted from yesterday’s festivities:
I might take some flack for this, but I’m giving it to the one person I thought really went for full-on glamour and gave us a little drama on the carpet last night. For my money, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively in Versace with Lorraine Schwartz and Christian Louboutin shoes just shut it down.
Other well-dressed ladies who displayed some great trends on the red carpet were:
Rhapsody in Blue: I loved the different hues of blue last night that were beautifully executed. Top of the list was Christina Applegate in navy silk charmeuse Basil Soda paired with Coomi white gold with black diamonds rings and Christian Louboutin shoes. An honorable mention in this hue goes to Julia Louis-Dreyfuss in Vera Wang.
Gorgeous in Gold: There was quite a bit of gold on the red carpet last night but I really loved Sandra Oh’s take on the metallic hue in her embroidered strapless Marchesa dress with belt and a Marchesa crocodile handbag with hand-beveled quartz crystal clasp.
Beautiful in Bordeaux: Gorgeous deep shades of red were shown on the carpet this year and no one looked more beautiful than Mila Kunis in her Monique Lhuillier ombre v-neck tea-length dress.
Worst Dressed: I have to ask Shar Jackson what she was thinking with her dress but it pales in comparison to the absolute horror that was Phoebe Price’s dress. Phoebe, a parachute covered in rhinestones is not a dress, it’s an experiment in terror.
