2014 Emmy's

Did anyone watch last night? I watched the beginning and the end -- the middle is all fluff anyway right?  The show was good (Not the "Ellen hosted the Oscar's" good) and had some great parts to it.  The tribute to Robin Williams from Billy Crystal was touching and made me cry.  The jokes from Seth Myers were OK but still enough to make you lol....not LMAO...just lol.  But I'm not here to talk about who won awards, I'm here to talk about who looked the best and of course who looked the worst!

So here are my nominees for best dressed....

Julia is 53 and looks UHMAZING! I thought the neckline on this dress was perfect for her. And I love the color!
I don't even know who this is but I LOVE this dress. It's simple yet elegant and I just love it!

I don't watch Modern Family so I don't really "know" Sarah Hyland but I thought this was lovely. It's young enough but not "too young" and I thought the color was divine on her.
I LOVE Orange is the New Black so I was REALLY hoping that Taylor Schilling didn't disappoint and she did NOT! I'm not usually a fan of flesh toned dresses on white girls but she pulled this one off. I LOVE the sparkle on it -- not too much to make it look gaudy. And I love the neckline and the way it shows off her back. This might be my favorite of the night.
I was on the fence on this one when I initially saw it on tv. I'm not a fan of the velvet but the color is great on her. And when she won her award for "Mom", she looked fabulous on the screen.  Her make-up was perfect and her hair was great too.  And because I LOVE her, she's on the good list. :)

Ok now for the ones I HATED!!!!!  

What was this girl thinking? I mean seriously??? First of all, she isn't even smiling -- if you're going to dress like that, at least act like it was on purpose! Try to make me think it was your idea to wear this awful thing.  I can't.  It's just so bad!!!

I like her (not enough to know her name) but I remember seeing her on something I've seen before.  Anyway, this was so ugly. What the heck are those red things? And why is there so much tulle on the OUTSIDE of the dress?!?!  It's just bad.

I used to really like Kathering Heigl but then she just kind of fell off the planet for a while.  Anyway, this dress is so matronly and it looks like an old silk bed cover I saw in a magazine 25 years ago.  And remember how I said earlier that I HATE flesh toned dresses on white girls -- this is a perfect example. It doesn't nothing for her skin and her almost matches. Hated it!

I'm torn over this one. I absolutely am obsessed with this color.  I would wear this color every single day if I could. BUT the top of this dress bothers me. A lot.  If the neckline was different I think it would almost be perfect.  A sweetheart neckline...even a modified sweetheart...anyway, I don't HATE this dress but I'm mad because it had so much potential!!!!!!

Anyway, those are just a few. I may do a follow-up post on some that I see that should have been mentioned.  



  1. Girl...I watch the Emmy's for the fashion and the laughs! :)

    You have some great choices above for best dressed and I agree with all of them. I love Allison Janey and always thinks she looks amazing. JLD is also probably my #1 best dressed - she looked amazing!

    And...there were so many bad choices on the carpet. Mayim Bialik, Kate Walsh, Lena...I am mostly talking about you!

    1. OMG MAYIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ADM!! Why did she choose that awful dress? It looked like it weighed 100 lbs and it was sooooooooooooo matronly. I adored the color but it even made her look "Big" and she's note even close to it!

      I really wish they would let me dress everyone. :D
