I’ll be honest, I don’t really watch the Emmy Awards. I don’t care about the nominations and who walks away with an award. For me, it’s just about the fashion. I love to look at who wore what! I love watching the Fashion Police after the awards show to hear the fashion critiques. I finally got a chance to watch the Fashion Police and now I’d like to share my style critique along with the trends found on the red carpet!
If you missed the Fashion Police, be sure to watch the video below to see their nominees for the BEST and the WORST dressed!
Emmy Fashion Trends 2010:
- Bold colors (lots of red especially)
- Extra volume/poofiness
- Solid black
Emmy Fashion BEST Dressed (the looks I loved most):
Emmy Awards 2010 - Claire Danes
I really LOVED the overall look. She just sparkles from head to toe. I liked that she didn’t really follow any of the major trends, she did her own thing!
She also had the BEST makeup! Props to her makeup artist! Her skin looks GREAT and the makeup has a soft glow to match the dress.
I love that the hair is down with soft wavy curls. I don’t think it would have been the same if she put her hair in an updo with this look.
The silhouette is a little too simple for my taste but it WORKS being that the embellishments are so intricate and bling bling.
Emmy Awards 2010 - Eva Longoria
I am a little bias when it comes to Eva Longoria because I think she is one of the most stunning women in Hollywood. Everything about her is beautiful. She always looks great and really knows how to dress her petite frame to perfection.
I really like the texture on the bottom (looks like a rose pattern) contrasted with the simple top. If it was textured completely, it would not be as visually interesting.
The silhouette is looks great! I like that it highlights her waist and then flares on the bottom. So elegant and chic.
Emmy Awards 2010 - Maria Menounos
Although this is borderline over-styled, it still peaks my interest. For one, the dress is totally unique and cannot be compared to anyone else.
I love when there are cut-outs somehow incorporated into a dress. It’s harder to pull off but when done right, it’s spectacular!
I love the embellishments being that there is a lot going on with this dress, it’s appropriate for the hair to be up.
However, I don’t think the red lip was necessary with this look. Although she looks pretty with red lips, it’s a little TOO much with this dress. I would have suggested a light lip color, such as a sheer baby pink.
Emmy Awards 2010 - Jewel
I really LOVE this gown! The dress is gorgeous and fits amazing on her. I like everything about this dress from the lace to the tiers to the cream color.
It’s a really feminine, soft look which works great for her voluptuous body. It would not look the on someone with less curves in my opinion.
I like her choice of jewelry along with her hair and makeup. It looks like she is wearing a deep red lipstick. It works with this look being the color of the dress is so soft.
She didn’t get a lot of recognition for this dress but this was definitely one of my personal favorites!
My Emmy 2010 Best Dressed Award goes to….
Emmy Awards 2010 - Lea Michele
I totally agree with the Fashion Police’s pick for the Emmy Awards 2010 Best Dressed.
Why this look won my vote for BEST DRESSED:
- Lea Michelle looks FANTASTIC from head to toe. Meaning all the styling involved is perfect! The hair, makeup, and jewelry. The NECKLACE is not only beautiful, but PERFECT with this dress! Love, love, love!!!
- The dress color is very interesting. At first I was not sure how I felt because this not a color I am normally drawn to. However, being that the style of the dress is already so dramatic, the color NEEDS to be muted. It would be way too over the top if this dress was hot pink or red. This dresses commands attention with elegance and without being too in your face.
- The dress is just stunning with high style! Best of all, she looks great in it! At the end of the day, a dress can be beautiful but if it doesn’t accentuate the body, it’s not worth it!
