The 2012 Emmy Awards brought out some unforgettable and regrettable fashions. Some of the biggest names in television came out to celebrate their fellow actors in breathtaking, floor-sweeping and sexy ensembles. There were so many fabulous frocks it was hard to narrow it down to only five spectacular best dressed celebrities.
A few standouts included 30 Rock star, Tina Fey in a strapless, burgundy Vivienne Westwood curve-hugging gown. This is probably the best the funny lady has looked to date. Winner for Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in Homeland, Claire Danes looked radiant in a strapless, marigold Lanvin column gown. Another notable mention, Girls star Allison Williams in an structured, emerald green Oscar de la Renta silk faille gown with peplum details.
I never like doing worst dressed lists just because I know in Hollywood, more often than not, celebrities do not actually pick the dresses they are wearing for red carpet events, they are at the mercy of their stylists and publicists. In order for one to truly look bad on a red carpet the star in question would ultimately have put no effort at all into the look or appeared to be a hot mess such Ke$ha wearing a trash bag or Helena Bonham Carter wearing mismatched shoes picked out by a child. All others we will just call a missed opportunity.
Here are a few missteps from the Emmy's-- Nicole Kidman in Antonio Berardi, this look was blah by many accounts. To sum up -- it was forgettable. Nicole was one of the few glamorous movie stars at the Emmy Awards and she was wearing such an amazing dress, but it falls flat due to not having that "wow" factor in the styling or hair and make-up. Another celebrity I personally love on the red carpet is Mad Men star, January Jones. January wore a dramatic, black Zac Posen structured gown, everything from the neck down was impeccable, however her eye-make up was too much and her hair was unflattering.
Here are our choices for the best dressed celebrities at the 2012 Emmy Awards.
