The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly of Emmys Fashion

I have been neglecting this blog for a little while, but as I was perusing the fashion websites to see who wore whom for the Emmys, I found a dress that compelled me to write.  This is the dress that I call "The Ugly".  

But first, let's start with "The Good"

If I had actually watched the show, I could say Sophia Vergara stole the show in her crepe coral custom Vera Wang creation.   She may not have taken home a statue, but she is the fashion winner of the night!

Coral is a flattering color, especially for those of us who can use a little color to liven up our skin tones.  

Sophia is a women that allows us to breathe a collective sigh of relief.  She proves that curves are sexy, and here to stay.  We can all enjoy half-a-cookie to celebrate!


While we are on the topic of women with curves, another spokeswomen for glamorous and not undernourished is Kate Winslet looking glamorous in an Elie Saab gown.  

Some other looks that fall into the category of "The Good" and are worth mentioning (from left to right) include:  (Left)   I have never heard of Nena Dobrev, but I love the Donna Karen mermaid cut gown.  (Middle)  Evan Rachel Wood may not as curvy as Sophia and Kate, but so glad to see you had a meal this week, and the Elie Saab gown is stunning.  (Right)  Katie Holmes looks good for a brainwashed manikin in a royal blue Calvin Klein gown. 

Now onto "The Bad".

Heidi Klume, famous international model, star of Project Runway, fashion icon.  Really?  Where to start... 

That tired out shade of pink/lavender does not flatter.  If you are 5 minutes over 35, forget about this color.  

Heidi Klume is known for regaining her knock-out figure soon after the birth of her children.  This cut does nothing to prove that.  Instead of elongating her torso, it shortens it.  

And what is going on with the skirt.  Coral is in style, not coral reefs attached to your dress. 

Some other "Bad" dresses include:

This look is not funny.  Amy Poehler in a Peter Som gown is a perfect example of why spanx are worth their weight in gold, even at the price of gold these days.  

I am not sure if I should call this a failed attempt at a goth look, or somebody sadly not dressing their age.  Either way, Gwyneth Paltrow in a  Pucci Crop top and skirt that is not certainly not her finest fashion hour. 


And now for "The Ugly"
Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, and now Lena Headey is bringing Amish back.  The only thing missing from this outfit is the bonnett.  Did she arrive in a horse drawn buggy?

Lena Headey may star in the Terminator, The Sarah Connor Chronicles,  but this dress should be terminated.
