How to put this delicately…the fashion at Sunday night’s 2012 Emmy Awards was mostly not great. A lot of it was fine, if you like sparkly, crowd-pleasing gowns or bright colors, but there were only a few wow moments to be found. Well, guess, what – we found ‘em. And we made a little post out of ‘em, as we are wont to do.
We know you’ve probably seen a few Emmys best-dressed lists now, but we like you guys, and we like talking about fashion with you, even when the photographers who covered the red carpet arrivals didn’t bother to get us any close-up shots of anyone’s handbags. So if you’ll indulge us a bit, we’d like to do a rundown of our favorite Emmy looks, including a few that we’re sure will be controversial. Join us, won’t you?
We’ll start with a crowd-pleaser that I actually quite like – Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi in tangerine Monique Lhuillier. The material is delicate-looking and beautiful, and she wisely resisted the urge to over-accessorize a dress that makes a statement on its own with a wide swath of bright orange.
