2009 Primetime Emmy Awards- Arrivals

21Sep09

Yesterday evening the stars came out to the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and while I was looking forward to the glitz and the glam I was sure would take place, I was a tad disappointed. They brought it, but they didn’t bring it all the way home:

The self styled Blake Lively stunned in a sexy red Versace dress, with a plunging neckline and open back. She completed the look with Christian Louboutin shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Blake has stated time & time again that she doesn’t have a stylist, and while she usually misses, leading me to write letters to her fan club begging her to get one, she brought it on this one. HIT

Seal played it safe in a Costume National suit, as usual, letting his wife Heidi Klum own the spotlight in a belly hugging Marchesa dress, Christian Louboutin shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Heidi is my personal red carpet favorite, and her choosing to do a body hugging dress as opposed to the usual maternity dress that covers the belly, was a HIT!

Kim Kardashian and a very pregnant Kourtney Kardashian hit the carpet together, both with completely different looks. Kim rocked an asymmetrical white Ina Soltani dress, Gucci shoes, Swarovski clutch and Siera earrings. Kourtney rocked an extremely boring midnight blue BCBG dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Super Gem jewels. Kim gets a HIT, but for the lack of glam on Kourtney’s part, she gets a MISS.

Our favorite red head Debra Messing did it again, rocking red with the red hair. While the controversial Rachel Zoe is usually her go to stylist, Debra opted to go to Michael Kors to dress her for this event. I’m not a fan of this look, but it wasn’t totally wrong. HIT

Drew Barrymore was one of the few folks the upped the glamour ante! She stunned in this nude Monique Lhuillier gown, Casadei shoes, Raven Kauffman “Drew” clutch and Anna Hu jewels. Love the look, (surprisingly) love the nude color on her, the full skirt with beaded trim, the pulled back hair, and the make-up. HIT

Actress Leighton Meester arrives at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awar

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester brought the future to old Hollywood with this look. The layered white Bottega Veneta dress with knotted shoulders, Roger Vivier shoes, and Cathy Naterman jewels. Love the look! HIT

hayden-panettiere-9209-7

Hayden Panettiere was one of my best dressed picks of the night! Just stunning in this J. Mendel dress, Bally shoes, Judith Leiber cluth, and Fred Leighton jewels. The hair, the make-up, the red lips and dress mixed with gold jewelry, I mean, it’s perfect! HIT

Vanessa Williams was boring and simple in this blue Rafael Cennamo dress. *yawn*. She’s still a stunner though, gorgeous woman! As for the look, MISS.

olivia-wilde-9209-2

Olivia Wilde is another one of my red carpet faves. She wore a Marchesa dress (again!) and clutch, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Kwiat jewels. I actually love the look on her. HIT

emmy-victoria-obamadress

WTF? Victoria Rowell, this isn’t okay. It’s not. MISS

christina-applegate-9209-3

Christina Applegate was indeed one of my favorite looks of the night. She looked gorgeous in this silk blue Basil Soda dress, topped off with Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Love it! HIT

58427812

58427150

The queen of simplicity, Tina Fey, rocked a very simple black Gucci dress and shoes, and Fred Leighton jewels. I didn’t expect any more glam from this Emmy vet, and since it’s not over the top horrible, she gets a HIT.

Grey’s Anatomy star Sandra Oh looked simply lovely in this gold Donna Karan dress with rope belt, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Tacori & David Yurman jewels. The fit was just right, and the dress color against her skin and under the LA sun topped it off. HIT

jennifer-love-hewitt-9209-5

jennifer-love-hewitt-9209-8

Jennifer Love Hewitt is always extremely boring on the red carpet to me. She hit the Emmy’s in this strapless yellow Max Azria number. This isn’t prom, Jen! She pulled this last year. MISS

jamie lynn sigler001

jamie lynn sigler002

Jamie Lynn Sigler was one of my picks for the night. This golden Donna Karan number looks like something J. Lo would wear, doesn’t it? Good look on her, and love how she accessorized the look! HIT

There you have it. My selections from the 61st annual Emmy’s red carpet. I have my best & worst dressed of the night coming up!

  1. What if we take a slower approach to lifestyle changes.
    In the world of organic shopping, is a food budget an oxymoron.
    That is the same amount of calories in a fast food quarter pounder.
