The red carpet was dazzling with stars on Sunday night for the 63rd Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. The women of television dressed to the nines, with many sticking to classic gowns with clean lines paired with statement making jewels. In traditional post-awards show fashion, several fashion commentators have expressed their approval, disdain, and utter confusion over select ensembles of the night.
Hits: Christina Hendricks, Jayma Mays.
Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks (pictured above) looked absolutely stunning in her curve-hugging Johanna Johnson gown. The vintage air of the gown suits Hendricks’ persona perfectly, both on-screen and off. Ivory tones are usually iffy for the red carpet, but Hendricks pulls the shade off perfectly, looking both ethereal and sophisticated.
Actress Jayma Mays also followed suit in the vintage-inspired department, rocking a sugary-sweet baby pink Zuhair Murad frock. Although the choice felt more Pretty In Pink than Hollywood glam, Mays’ sweet demeanor shone through the gown.
Misses: Gwyneth Paltrow, Dianna Agron.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s two-piece beaded, Indian-inspired creation by Emilio Pucci looked more fit for the hookah bar than the red carpet. Although her midriff is unequivocally ripped, critics agree that Paltrow should save the belly for the beach next time.
Glee‘s Dianna Agron (below) looked wise beyond her years in a modest Roksanda gown, but not in a good way. Fashion critics collectively agree that, although the gown was gorgeous, the high neckline and covered up feel of the dress made Agron look matronly.
Overall, the fashion forecast for the 63rd Emmy Awards was decidedly bright, with the red carpet shining with rich jewel tones, luxe fabrics, and jewels fit to envy. Other notable standouts of the night include Zoe Deschanel, Minka Kelly, and Heidi Klum.
