Red Rules as Black & Nude Drools at the 2011 Emmy’s

19 Sep

Sofia Vergara could rock a red burlap sack and make it look like couture – but as a star on the Emmy winning show Modern Family, she certainly doesn’t have to.  Here she shows off her signature curves in a very flattering mermaid style Vera Wang.

Nina Dobrev looked drop dead gorgeous in this form fitting Donna Karan gown.  Honestly, I had to google who she was.  For the other non-vampire loving people (like myself) she is one of the “vampires” in one of the vampire shows. I am pretty sure she is already quite famous, but this lady-in-red moment is a fashion turning point for her.  I believe she will now become one-to-watch on the red carpet.   Agree?

This is not Kerry Washington’s first time in Zuhair Murad…but it may be her best yet.  Her simple hair, make-up, and accessories really let the dress shine.

While red ruled on the red carpet…a few black & nude looks left much to be desired.  I am a huge Gwyneth fan, and I am also a big fan of Emilio Pucci…but this look just isn’t working. How can someone this svelte look like she has a flabby belly and saggy boobs? The ruffles and the pattern design on the chest are not doing her any favors.  In her case, I think a red burlap sack would be an improvement.

One of the absolute worst looks of the day was worn by a fairly newcomer to the red carpet, Vanessa Marano.  I would say that she deserves a pass, but these young actors are surrounded by helpers.  I wish she would have asked one of them to be brutally honest with her.   Someone should have told her that this dress is a mess.  Do you think her stylist hates her?  Vanessa…you are so pretty!  Fire your stylist.
