I felt like I had to comment on some of the dresses I didn’t expect to see tonight.
Gwyneth Paltrow surprised viewers wearing this spring 2012 embroidered Emilio Pucci midriff top and skirt. I like it. I felt like GP was channeling a little vintage Cher and it was so unconventional for the Emmys that it made it stand out — and not in a bad way. Of course Gwyneth would not only feel the need to make mouths drop, but she also got an advanced gown! Pucci won’t reveal their spring collection until later this month during Milan Fashion Week.
Gwyneth accessorized with Neil Lane jewelry and Roger Vivier sandals.
I love that Heidi Klum was supporting Christian Siriano in this one-of-a-kind dress and it looks great…from the waist up. The pleated, ruffle, mullet bottom is just bizarre. I don’t get it…I don’t want to get it. Heidi accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and Christian Louboutin pumps.
Olivia Munn arrived wearing a gorgeous shade of green but when I got a better look I noticed it was another spring 2012 gown! Olivia wore a creation from Carolina Herrera‘s collection that just debuted at New York Fashion Week earlier this month. There’s nothing wrong with her look, I guess I just didn’t understand the rush to jump through the fall and resort collections to wear this.
Now this is what I’m talking about. Kristen Wiig has made her move into my “one to watch” category with this downright amazing ombré gown by Zac Posen. The shades of chocolate and caramel running through this gown just took my breath away. I never knew my favorite “Saturday Night Live” Target lady could raise the bar this high on the red carpet.
I didn’t see Drew Barrymore until she took the stage with the ladies of “Charlie’s Angels” (Drew is producing the re-vamped series for ABC). I noticed right away that Drew was wearing a gown from Givenchy‘s fall 2011 haute couture collection, but I’m wondering why she did. The light beige color blended too much with her skin and the sheer skirt and sleeveless high neck top portion just didn’t translate well on-stage. You gotta love Drew for taking a risk with fashion.
