Emmy Awards 2010

The Emmy Awards were on recently so I decided to select some of the outfits that I liked and disliked for the subject of this post. In my opinion, there were very few beautiful dresses and many looks that I did not like and were not in accordance with my taste. My absolute favourite look of the event was definitely Jewel! I always find these sorts of posts fun and I enjoy browsing through all the photos. I'm sure some people will disagree with my choices but thats ok, I have fairly specific taste when it comes to outfits for the Red Carpet. So let me know what you think.

Good:

-Kelly Osbourne presents a different image from what I usually see of her and I think that is a refreshing change. I haven't seen much of her for the last few years so maybe I am really out of it and I may have missed something but this is probably one of the best looks I have seen from her. I think she looks classy and I love the detailing and shape of the dress as something extra on a black dress.
-I love Jewel's dress and I think she looks very beautiful. The colour of her dress is pretty and the detailing and train make a statement. I love the decorative and fitted top and I think the bow and purse are just so sweet. I adore dresses in nude tones at the moment and Jewel's look was without a doubt my favourite of the event.
-Lea Michele often dresses well for red carpet events and I have seem a lot of popularity centred around some of her looks this year. The colour of her dress is classy but it is the style and fit that make a statement. I think the bottom of it is creative and something different. This look suits her so well.

Bad:

- Lauren Graham. This dress is just so random and I have heard mixed opinions about it. I personally think it is totally wrong and very unflattering. I don't like the random white part against the black and I am not a fan of the shoes or the slit up the side.
-Lo Bosworth. This dress could have been ok for another occassion but I personally don't think it is appropriate for the red carpet. It seems too casual and like the sort of dress someone would wear to the office. I think the length of this dress is wrong and it should have either been longer or shorter. It this dress had some minor adjustments and was a little more glam then it might have been ok.
-Rutina Wesley. I strongly dislike the colours and pattern of this dress and the slit up the side is completely unflattering for her in my opinion. I dislike the shoes and there is just something about this whole look that makes me think that it is totally wrong.

I feel like I scared a lot of you away with my last post but I am very thankful for the people that did comment. I like to be able to share many aspect of my life not just the happiness and fashion related posts but if you are just here for the fashion etc then that is perfectly fine too. It is just unbelievable how many issues and difficult events have arisen in the past few weeks to both myself and some of the important people around me. I feel affected by my own issues and those of others. I know that I have problems with nerves and anxiety but I think that many people would be feeling stressed out and unsure of things if they were in the position that I am in now. Thats all I have to say about it for now and I'll make sure that my next few posts are much more positive.

I'm with U. Jewel!

Rose said...

I loooove jewel's dress too! And also Lea's (although i dont know who she is). Not too keen on Kellys dress, but probably only because I think why wear black when there are so many colours in the rainbow :)
Completely agree with your bad picks.
I also have probs with anxiety and other related things, and I think your right in that more people suffer from these type of problems than you would even imagine. Its just that its not understood by those who havent delt with it, so its not spoken about.
Hope things look up for you soon :)

I didn't read your last post but I just flicked back. I honestly think that blogs are a great outlet about these things, so at least you've voiced your worries and anxieties rather than keep them to yourself. Definitely stay positive (even though I know how difficult that must be).

Take care! x

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Wow I really love Jewel's dress. She's stunning. I didn't watch the Emmy's this year but I usually do...it's nice to see one of the best-dressed wasn't someone you would expect.

I don't think you scared anyone away with your last post. At least, I hope not. You are entitled to discuss whatever you like on your blog and I think it's healthy to do so, if you feel overwhelmed. After all, you never know who out there can help you or offer advice because they are in a similar situation. Plus, all your followers will support you and comfort you in any situation. We love you!! :)

I'm a really big fan of Jewel way back when so I was really thrilled to see her on the red carpet! She's so gorgeous:)

Ariella said...

Yes, Jewel did look gorgeous! I also really liked the dress January Jones was wearing, it was so lovely and blue, but most critics I read didn't like it.

I love Kelly Osbourne's look, but Lea Michele is a bit to much for me. I agree on Lauren Graham, her dress is really unflattering, but I kind of like Lo Bosworth's dress, however you are right, not a red carpet look!

FashionistaSil said...

The second gown is lovely:D

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Kelly Osborne looks fantastic; Lo looks like she's ready to go out to lunch!

C.Elizabeth said...

Jewel's dress was indeed fabulous and I also really liked the dress of Claire Danes!
I just can't believe how much Kelly Osborne has changed... in such a good way!

Georgie said...

Don't feel bad about using your blog as an outlet if it makes you feel better :) Completely agree with your analysis of the dresses, I'm shocked by how much weight Kelly Osbourne has lost!

Becky Regina said...

Agree with you ! I hate Lauren Graham's dress , just awful . I love Lea Michele's dress the most !

Romany said...

Agree about the 'good' - sad to see Lea Michele wasting away...she looks much better when she's not scary skinny.
Ah yes that dress on Lauren Graham is just...so not right. Just a really bad choice.

I loved Jayma Mays and Lea Michele, and Julie Bowen looked stunning! I was so disappointed by Lauren Graham; she's so gorgeous and talented that I wish she'd land on the "Best" list for once!

Hope you're doing better now hon. I think Jewel does look great, Kelly looks fine and everyone else looks terrible! Not sure why there are so many dark colours either, given that it's summer!
Were any Mad Men stars there? I generally like seeing their looks. In general though I find the movie awards have better fashion. I don't trust TV people to dress well!
