Julianna Margulies in Reed Krakoff at the Emmys: best look of the night?

When Julianna Margulies first came on the red carpet, I could only see her dress from the waist up and I hated it. I thought she was wearing yet another wedding gown-y white dress, of which there were many hideous gowns to choose from last night. But when I saw the whole Reed Krakoff gown… I kind of loved it. It was interesting and high-quality. From a distance, you can see that the black is some kind of minimalist floral, but in the close-ups of the gown, it looked like an avant-garde Rorschach Test. I think Julianna is one my favorite looks of the evening. Could her hairstyle be better? Sure. Did I think the gown was the most flattering thing she’s ever worn? Of course not. But it was interesting, it was thoughtful and I think she looks beautiful.

More ladies from The Good Wife… here’s Christine Baranski, who I LOVE. She wore Zac Posen and she looked fabulous too.

Carrie Preston in Romona Keveza. I hate this dress but I love Carrie. If you’ve never seen her on The Good Wife, you need to take a look. Her recurring character is one of the best parts of a good show.

And Amanda Peet in Erdem. I’m sorry, but this is AWFUL. God, I feel like I’m just allergic to lace at this point. This looks like widow garb mixed with doily chic. Terrible.

    Margulies is so gorgeous. I know she’s had a ton of work done in the past 5-6 years but she looks amazing anyway. That second photo of her with her husband is so cute-she looks like she’s having fun with it. She might even be a little bit lit up ;)

    Love that dress on her-so polished.

    Rose Byrne or Zoey Deschanel were the best of the night.
    Julianna looked fine. Was she always this thin?

      I think it’s interesting how much opinions vary. I wasn’t wild about JM’s look (especially when she was presenting and her hair covered her eye), or Zoey. I thought Rose looked really rough and hung over, and that the blond hair is terrible for her.

    Love Julianna and love her in the good wife. The dress is classic and beautiful. The details make it so interesting.

    Those aren’t flowers, that is ivy.

    I like all their looks except for Amanda’s.
    Julianna, and Julia Louis Dreyfus, always do elegant modern very well.

    I love her dress, but I am a big fan of black and white. I agree she looks really thin, maybe a bit too thin. Amanda Peete’s dress is making me question her sanity. It is HIDEOUS.

  7. Amory says:

    I like Julianna’s dress a ton, but it looks like it needs to be hiked up an inch or so. It should fit perfectly, but it doesn’t.

  8. snark says:

    Ohhh, Amanda. Can we just let this black lace, sheer-skirted trend die? SO tired.

  9. Madriani's Girl says:

    Hate Julia’s hair. I think it takes away from her unusual looks and like her better long and curly.

  10. Diana says:

    Christine Baranski, always a win. I love that woman.

  11. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Amanda’s dress is so wretched it should be illegal.

    I don’t personally care for Julianna’s dress but I like it on her. Agree that Christine also looks great. I would love Carrie’s dress in a different color-that shade is washing her out too much. Wtf is Amanda even doing? It looks like she just rolled through the scraps on a seamstress’s floor and this is what came out!

  13. Aurelia says:

    Christine Baranski always looks spectacular. She gives the younger phillies a run for their money. Colour is perfect on her.

  14. tokeberry says:

    They all looked great but the winning look of the Emmys is:

    Carla Gugino! She looked superb in a gown that was a flattering fit, color, style and hue. Perfect hair, perfect makeup, perfect accesories. Her best accessory was her happy smile.
    My girl.

    I’m completely over the strapless look. It’s under whelmimg, completely blah, and hard to differentiate. JM is a gorgeous lady true, but the dress doesn’t do much for me.

    Christine Baranski on the other hand totally rocked her look. Kudos.

    Cover Amanda’s mouth and bangs and she could be Daniel Radcliffe
