At the Critics’ Choice Television Awards last night, there were a few hits and plenty of misses. Hayden Panettiere dressed down in a Keepsake “Lost Without You” aqua blue dress that showed off a bit of skin. The dress looks great on her figure but is also very dated. I have no idea why she wore nude peep-toed shoes with this dress either. Her hair and makeup look pretty good though even if she does look slightly too tan at this event. Hayden also has a great smile, which makes any outfit look prettier than it really is.
Emmy Rossum fared much better (she was up for Best Actress in a Drama Series) in a Donna Karan gown that had a one-shouldered design and wrapped around her body in a dramatic manner from the back view. The gold, metal-like fabric provided a nice contrast against Emmy’s light skin and dark hair, and the bold pink lipstick is an unexpected touch that also works well. I also love the side-swept hair, which fits the mood of the dress.
Natalie Zea … EGADS. I don’t even know where to begin here, but those of you who watch “Justified” (and this past season of “Californication”) will know that Natalie is a gorgeous woman with tons of sex appeal and (relatively) natural beauty. On last night’s red carpet, she worked very hard to destroy all of that. Is she trying to be Cleopatra? The dress itself isn’t a disaster, but those dramatic, overdone earrings and harsh makeup really complete the transformation into a terrible, terrible look. Poor Natalie.
Lucy Liu won the award for Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series (“Southland”) and looked very feminine yet ravishing at the same time. Lucy wore an Atelier Versace gown in light pink with lots of lace and ruffles. Her loose chignon and soft, girlish makeup set off the look perfectly. I still can’t believe she’s 43 years old.
Kate Walsh looked incredibly bland on the red carpet last night. There’s nothing wrong with this yellow dress, but she could have dressed it up a bit with an updo and more dramatic makeup.
Charlie Hunnam was there too in a black suit and black tie. It’s a bit monochromatic, and I sort of miss his longish hair from way back. Still, the man is adorable.
