in every way is captured in this photo. Claire Danes looks stunning in this sparkling champagne-colored Armani Privé gown, with her golden tanned skin and holding the golden Emmy statue for her role in Temple Grandin. I’ve always thought that Claire had a unique beauty about her (even from the days of My So-Called Life), but she has really become an elegant young woman with a beautiful smile. This dress fit her perfectly and the hair and makeup were outstanding. She wins top honors as my favorite of the night.
With so many pretty dresses at the 2010 Emmy Awards, it was hard to pick my top five favorites – really hard – so I picked seven.
Number two on my list was this navy Oscar de la Renta gown worn by Glee’s Lea Michele.
This young beauty wore the sophisticated dress so well and you can see in her face how much she loved it. Everyone knows I love ruffles – and coupled with this rich navy color – I was speechless.
Number three goes to Brooke Burke in Mark Zunino. She was breathtaking in this gown that was clearly made for her and showed off every asset to a tee while still being very ladylike.
Her side swept hair was feminine and soft and brought attention to the amazing Chopard piece around her neck.
The shoes and the small sparkling handbag top it off.
Next up – Heidi Klum. Let’s face it, this dress is just sexy. Marchesa was represented well on the Red Carpet this year (as they should be), but this was my favorite of the pack. I love everything Marchesa designs, but I’m always amazed by what they do with the minidress - and for leggy gals like Heidi they create showstoppers. I appreciate that Heidi always honors her personal style and gives a dress like this the life it deserves.
Side note – Congrats to Marchesa’s, Georgina Chapman, who had a little baby girl named India Pearl right after the Emmy’s.
Coming in at #5, Glee’s Heather Morris wearing a chic metallic gold dress by Ina Soltani.
She looks glamorous and dare-I-say “old Hollywood."
The pretty black ribbon belt really made this dress modern and a stand out from all the other glitzy dresses in the crowd. Carrying a vintage style black evening bag tied in with the belt perfectly.
I love that Heather chose a lesser-known designer, that she honored the glamour and sophistication of award show fashion and she did it in a way that was youthful and appropriate to current trends. Well done.
While the next two dresses fall outside of my top five, I couldn’t leave them out of my report.
Glee’s Dianna Agron looks radiant in this tiered lace gown by Carolina Herrera. Mrs. Herrera always creates the most ethereal, feminine gowns that are befitting of a princess. Dianna sure looks like one here.
I love the combination of nude lace with black in this gown. There is something very elegant about the combination.
I was glad that she wore her hair back so the detail of the dress was really able to shine.
Kelly rocked a stunning black Tony Ward Couture dress with a deep v-neck and vintage style draping. I loved the interesting jewels at the top of the shoulders and the geometric detail along the skirt. The black color against her pale skin and blond hair was a stunning contrast that also was fitting of her personal style.
And where did this gorgeous body come from? She has been working hard, looks amazing and you can tell through that smile that she feels beautiful.
So who were the big winners at the 2010 Emmy’s. Well aside from those who took home the gold statues for their work, the Glee girls really took home the fashion gold. I don’t watch the show (but feel I should start with all the accolades they’re getting), but they sure have access to great stylists.
