Vivienne Westwood

2012 Emmy Awards~ Best Dressed

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.

Supermodels are Golden for the Olympics Closing Ceremony

If you were watching the closing ceremony for the Olympics last night you saw these gorgeous familiar faces strut their stuff on the Olympic stage. The closing ceremony theme was all about British culture including music and fashion! Hearing from great groups and entertainers like One Direction, Take That, part of Oasis, Fatboy Slim and The Spice Girls. We were dancing and singing all night long reflecting on days gone by and the era of the 90s. 

The supermodels looked so glamorous in gold celebrating Team GB's 29-gold medals earned over the 17 days the games took place.

Here's a wrap up of what the models wore from left to right:

Lily Cole shimmered in a gold embroidered, lace Erdem cocktail dress paired with gold Charlotte Olympia ankle-strap pumps.

Stella Tennant rocked a Christopher Kane metal mesh and Swarovski crystal pant suit.

Karen Elson donned a gold-lace Burberry evening gown featuring a center split. She added Jimmy Choo gold sandals to complete her look.

Kate Moss was breathtaking in an Alexander McQueen gold-sequined full-length gown with a daring plunging neckline.

Lily Donaldson wore a Vivienne Westwood gold, embroidered gown featuring a baroque pattern detailing.

Naomi Campbell was as fierce as ever in an Alexander McQueen gold metal, embroidered dress with a flowing shimmering train and Alexander McQueen wedges.

Georgia May Jagger wore a gold-metal Victoria Beckham cocktail dress and accessorized with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Jourdan Dunn sported a gold and white Jonathan Saunders leather dress and a fabulous Stephen Jones gold-feather headdress.
