Best and Worst Dressed at the 2011 Emmys

Best Dressed

The biggest trend at the 63rd Emmy Awards was the color red, but it was the ‘noir’ ladies who scored higher on the carpet.

Gwyneth Paltrow

It was perhaps Gwyneth Paltrow who took the biggest risk at Sunday’s Emmys by wearing a midriff-baring dress by Emilio Pucci.

The Emmy winner was smart enough to keep her hair and make-up to a minimum, which only complemented her overall look.

Kerry Washington

While many wore red, nobody had more fun with this hue than Kerry Washington, who opted for a design by Zuhair Murad.

The brightness, the sequins and see-through elements combined could’ve been a disaster on someone else, but Washington gives it balance with her poise and elegance.

Naya Rivera

Naya Rivera has never looked better this dress by Lloyd Klein, updo hair and smoky eyes. The bodice was interesting and architectural, yet simple and understated.

Nina Dobrev

Nina Dobrev shines in this dress by Donna Karan. While the bottom part is what makes it special, it’s really how Dobrev fits into this dress what we enjoyed the most.


Evan Rachel Wood

Even though she spent her summer playing with menswear, Evan Rachel Wood chose old Hollywood glamour in this black dress by Elie Saab.


Worst Dressed

Most of the women in this list at least tried to look decent, but there was one whose only goal was to show how tanned she could be.

Julianna Margulies

Some dresses are really just meant for editorials, and this is the case with the Armani Privé number that Julianna Margulies wore to the Emmys.

Besides, white is a very difficult color to wear for women with porcelain skin, especially if they have jet-black hair, like Julianna has.

Heidi Klum

Maybe this would’ve been a hit for a Project Runway challenge, but in the red carpet, this Christian Siriano design doesn’t look good on Heidi Klum.

The volume of the skirt would’ve worked if it was full-length, but midway it just looks like Heidi was going for drama while trying to show off her gams.

Melissa MacCarthy

The sleeves of this dress only made Melissa McCarthy look frumpier and bigger, and even though purple is a great color for her skin it was a tad too dark and sad.


Taraji P. Henson

There’s nothing really bad about this Bluemarine dress, it has more to do with the fit and how it looks on Taraji P. Henson.

 Paz de la Huerta

This pink dress would probably work better at a prom from the 80’s, and it even looks more ridiculous on Paz de la Huerta’s overly tan body and disheveled hair.

      God have mercy on your soul Gwyneth strike you down Paltrow. Kids, what was that hawt bixch thinking when she opted for that bare midrift thing. This isn’t Milan you know? Paris and haute cooky things aside, what’s with the fish scale and doesn’t Gwyneth like know she’s way too fat to be wearing that shit even if it’s black. Ugh what a flop, really G, go back to the UK with that one hit pony boyfriend of yours and stop pretending your a fashion con artist icon or whatever you think you are. Blah!
