Emmys Fashion: The Worst, Most Hideous looks of the evening


There was a tremendous amount of fug fashion last night, even from some repeat offenders. Like January Jones – what the fug is this mess? It’s Versace, by the way. Donatella needs her head examined for making this crap for January. Beyond the hideous (too bright) dress, January hair was hideous, and she looked WAY too thin. Also: seashell boobs!!!

As offensive as January was, the truth is that she’s still young enough to say, “Well, she’s still experimenting with her look.” You cannot say this about Rita Wilson. Rita usually knows what looks good on her figure, and she usually has pretty decent taste. Not last night – Tom Hanks was nominated as executive producer of The Pacific, and this is how Rita showed up:


Hideous, right? Sparkly fisherman’s net. Check out her Prada shoes:


I know Anna Paquin was wearing a dress by the late Alexander McQueen, who was one of her favorite designers. But I think this looks horrible – on her, for this event. Maybe for a different event, with different hair and makeup, I wouldn’t hate this so much. But I just think this does nothing for her.

Sometimes it’s difficult to judge someone as badly dressed because it’s not even that they look terrible, it’s just that in mind, they could have looked spectacular. Sofia Vergara just didn’t bring it – she could have looked amazing, and this dress just seems to be phoning it in. Controversial choice, I know. It just doesn’t do anything for her figure or her coloring.

Dianna Agron (is that her name?) in funky princess styles. Hated it. Next.

I thought Julie Bowen looked like hell too! And the camera kept cutting to her during the Emmy telecast because she was in the front row. She was wearing WAY too much makeup, and her dress makes her look like a mermaid whore.

Now, I don’t know this chick’s name. She’s Ty Burrell’s wife, and I am embarrassed for her. My first thought was “cat toy.” My second thought? “How could she think this looks cute?”

Honestly, Glenn Close looked much prettier in motion, and you can tell that she’s a beautiful woman who is aging naturally, and I applaud that, for real. Plus, she can act the pants off of nearly every woman at the Oscars. So on talent alone, Glenn is awesome. But I didn’t care for this look at all. Something was off, and I still can’t put my finger on it. Like, the color should have either been darker or lighter, and the fit should have been better and her hair should have been different. Eh.

I kind of loved Julia Ormond’s dress, honestly. The fit was awesome, and it looked great on her. The hair just ruined it for me.

Lauren Graham. Hated it. Next.

Jewel. Hated it. She looked like a pale pink doily.

Heidi Klum in Marchesa. Hated it. Too short – it was neither age appropriate nor venue-appropriate. And her styling sucked too – who wears a huge, chunky necklace with a tiny little minidress? Tacky.

I thought Keri Russell looked very pretty, actually. It just wasn’t appropriate for the Emmys. This would have been good for a premiere (with a better fitting bust, right?) – but for the Emmys, she needed another three inches of fabric at the bottom.

I wanted to like Elizabeth Moss’s dress, I really did. I find her adorable, and I want her to have great fashion moments. But the color washed her out, and I hate the crap on her shoulder, and the hair is horrible, like Sally Field in Steel Magnolias helmet hair for a 50-year-old grandmother.

Ever since I saw Rose Byrne in Get Him To The Greek, I’ve been in love with her. But these Bride of Frankenstein styles have got to go.

Speaking of Bride of Frankenstein, Mindy Kaling. I love her, she’s quirky and interesting and a really talented writer, but NO. Honey, just stop.

Kate Gosselin’s dress looked totally WalMart. As did her hair and makeup. As did her bitchface.

Jane Krakowski – always a bad dresser. This doesn’t make her top five worst looks, but she still needs a new stylist.

Emily Deschanel = Bangs trauma.

Padma Lakshmi can’t dress for sh-t. At all.

Is Betty White still being dressed by the Golden Girls costumer? Because she can afford to hire someone better. I still love her though.

Emily Blunt should know better. This is so fug, it hurts my eyes.

I think Toni Collette is one of the best actresses of her generation. I also think she’s one of the worst dressers of her generation. While this is a really, really great look for Toni (it fits and everything), it’s still a fug look overall. It looks like she’s been walking in mud and dung.

Naya Rivera, no one knows who you are, and no one cares. Settle down.

Speaking of no one caring, Eva Longoria. Zzzz….

A dude made it on the worst-dressed list – Mr. Alan Cumming. Now, I love Alan. I love his funky style, because I think it’s genuine and not some hipster affectation, you know? He really is this strange. So I love to hate this look – women’s palazzo pants, loafers, and an ascot. Bless his funky heart.

    You have to admit, January Jones was an interesting mess. I don’t know, but I love her little bit of crazy going on…LOVE IT!

    Rita Wilson: THe Pacific Garbage Patch HAD to be the inspiration for her look.

    Sookeh: Look like one of Princess Leia’s castoffs… or at least a guest spot on Star Trek as the Grand Empress of Planet Zabababa

    Sofia Vergara’s dress looks like a surgery scar.

  2. Marjalane says:

    I know it’s mean to be happy that an actress is on a downward spiral, but it would be totally O.K. if I never saw Eva Longoria on a red carpet again! She SO thinks she’s all that- and why was Kate, “Dress Barn” Gosselin even there? And someone needs to introduce Heidi Klum to Michelle Pfeiffer’s stylist; She can still be hot, but with (please) a little bit more dignity. She just looked pathetic in that scrap of material with her giant necklace.

    Pretty confident January Jones pissed off someone and that someone sent her out in public looking like a cartoon.

  3. meme says:

    Didn’t even recognize Rita Wilson – she’s had mucho work done.

  4. Rachel says:

    I know I am totally out-numbered here but I actually liked January Jones’ dress and her hair didn’t bother me all that much.

  5. Keen says:

    ok what the hell was Kate Gosselin doing at the emmys in the first place? and her dress looks like a prom reject. but seriously WHY was she there?

  6. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    OMG The fug the fug the fug THE FUG!!!!! January Jones looked terrible but goodness gracious she wasn’t the worst I see. OMG Mindy Kaling what were you smoking baby? I agree Heidi Klum’s dress is way to short but its cute. Ok WTF was Rita Wilson smoking?!?! Rita looked awful.

    I loved Anna’s dress. It was stunning. So chic and so now. Loves it. Anna was also glowing.

    I thought Padma’s dress was adorable but I wish she hadn’t wore that necklace, she has been into some fug neck pieces these season on Top Chef and she took it with her to the Emmys. Padma must be friends with the person makes this mess or hell designing it herself.

    I think some people would have looked ok if they had been styled properly.

    I love Alan Cumming and I can’t ever hate him in the stuff he wears. I love him to much.

  7. Jessi says:

    I know where you were going with Keri Russell, but she can do no wrong imo, the whole look is very her. At least she knows who she is.

  8. Kirsten says:

    Woh I LOVED Sofia’s dress. I thought it looked great with her skin tone… I also loved Julie Benz and Ana Paquin. The dress is dark and so is True Blood… she fit her show!

  9. julie says:

    I agree w/ every one except Jewel, loved her dress but then I’m a lace knitter

  10. texasmom says:

    I think January Jones could have pulled it off it she just didn’t look so darn. . .glum. Sell it, girl, sell it!!!

    I liked the fug girls comment about January Jones AND Kate Gosselin, all rolled into one. From their live blog:

    “6:51 p.m.: First glimpse of January Jones. Her hair is down and mussed, and her blue dress is either really pretty and unique, or a lampshade at a relatively cheerful brothel. Meanwhile, we also just mistook Kate Gosselin for Lisa Kudrow. We owe Lisa Kudrow a fruit basket and perhaps a ham for that one. For the record, Kate’s sparkly black halter dress makes her boobs look enormous, and yet also, as if they are smiling.”

  11. Spunky says:

    I agree with all the picks with the exception of two:

    Heidi Klum – She is a supermodel and could wear a napkin and still look amazing. I think she looks fresh and young. She’s a mom and can still pull it off. Good for her! She doesn’t belong on this list.

    Sofia Velwhatever – I agree that she could have taken it to another level and looked more amazing but she looks rather good still, especially compared to the other bad dressed people. She has no business being on this list.

  12. a says:

    moss: the shoulder of her dress looked like a used hanky.

    rita: poor, sweet rita.

    plus, mermaid whore? awesome! i’ll file that one away for the future!

  13. Zelda says:

    I only disagree on 2 points–Diana Agron (whoever she is) and Emily Blunt.
    And I actually think Jane Krakowski looks pretty good.

  14. ViktoryGin says:

    OMG. Did Jewel finally fix her grill? Christmas come late.

    Versace: otherwise known as gaudy vomit masquerading as fashion. I hate that I don’t hate January Jones’ dress. I do think that this kind of dress with the metal blue coloring is more appropriate for the Grammys or the VMAs. Music entertainers are able to take more risks and get away with it.

    I’ll take a crack at Glenn Close. Here’s my theory: that metallic gold does not suit a middle-aged fair-complexioned woman. Period. If she were younger or darker she could get away with it. Plus, she doesn’t have enough support in her bust. Her tits somehow disappear into her waist.

    Okay, never mind the dress, how could you not call Padma Lakshmi out for that ratchet hair? Damn, brushes are our friends, we pay hairdressers to be our friends, and it looks like Lasksmi needs one.

    I really wish Toni Collette would go back to her natural hair colour.

    Rita Wilson’s styling reminds of how Joan Crawford looked in the seventies…you know, near the end of her career…and life.

  15. Spunky says:

    Also, I don’t think January Jones looks as bad as people are making her out to be. Her hair isn’t that bad and the dress has a nice silhouette and color. The problem was the material that was used for the dress. Other than that, the dress is being harshly criticized. Well, at least she’s getting attention.

  16. KatC says:

    I kind of like January Jones’ dress, not with the train thing, and the bust is kind of a mess, but I love the color. If it was short and had something other than seashell boobs I would dig it.

    I also think that Dianna Agron looks fantastic, the color is almost doing bad things to her, but it’s totally working for me. Very pretty and a little gothic, much more mature than what you would usually see on someone her age.

    Julia Ormond looks fantastic and so so sexy.

    I also like Jewel’s dress, I kind of hate it when actresses wear the bodice so far down their chests (respect your breasts please)but it’s actually really really pretty, I just think the color isn’t as good for her as it could be.

    Padma Lakshmi looks fantastic, so natural. She’s so beautiful she doesn’t really need a bunch of styling (though just a little bit would have been nice)and that color is nice.

    Keri Russel, I have never really liked her. EVER. That dress is wrong, why does she want her nonexistent breasts to look like deflated water balloons What a terrible fit.

  17. Lisa says:

    Where is the photo of Chrisitina Hendricks, she wore a horrible dress and her cleavage looked like water balloons.

  18. Isabel says:

    Sofia Vergara – I thought she was stunning. Absolutely stunning! Rocking her natural beauty without trying to overpower it with an over-the-top dress. Perfectly done.

    The rest, I pretty much agree. Especially Rita Wilson. Girl, hookers would pass on those shoes. YIKES.

  19. melina says:

    My God, Kaiser, we couldn’t have more different taste. lol
    January Jones (minus the shoes) and Diana Agron was my favorites for the night! And I hate (Christina Hendricks, Maura Tierney) or find really boring (Julia Dreyfus, Lea Michele) some of the looks you loved!

  20. Eileen says:

    Wow-I see I didn’t miss much while at my neighborhood pool party last night!
    But I do like Anna’s dress. Alexander McQueen can do no wrong in my eyes-his designs are so frickin fantastic. One day I will own one…one day. I might be 85, and homeless….but it will happen!

  21. petalfrog says:

    Rita Wilson looks like she’s wearing one of those beaded wine covers that Pier 1 was selling a while back.

    I like Jewel’s dress and for the most part Jane Krakowki’s.

    Padma looks terrible (hair and dress). I like that she still has some baby weight on her… she looks very womanly.

    I saw January Jones and gasped out loud. That thing is disgusting. It reminds me of the dress from Project Runway Season 1 that someone made out of blue lawn chairs… except theirs was cuter. If her hair had been different it could be argued she was going for “edgy” or “avant garde” but this is just lazy.

  22. JulieM says:

    I agree with the other posters who liked Jewel’s dress. Then again, I kind of like the lacy, vintage look.

  23. kiki says:

    january looks gorgeous

  24. aenflex says:

    I’ll just say NICE WORK on the Emmy’s stuff ladies, thanks!!!

  25. lucy2 says:

    Totally agree, except I didn’t mind Jane Krakowski’s, and though Elisabeth Moss’ was pretty except the color did wash her out. Like the blue color on January, but hate the dress itself.
    Heidi’s – way too short. Jewel – don’t like the bow.
    Lauren Graham, why? So pretty and talented, such a horrible dress.
    Dianna Agron – I used to love Caroline Herrera gowns, but have hated them in recent years. Dianna is really pretty but I hate that gown, it looks like it belongs on a weird doll. And it’s actually better in photos than live on TV.
    Anna Paquin’s – I would never choose it, but on TV it actually was maybe OK on her. Different, at least.
    Sofia – like the color and fit, just don’t like the line down the middle, but she herself looks great.

  26. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I think Betty White looked just fine.

  27. California Surfer says:

    Most of these dudettes, even the older ones, in their boxy dresses totally look like they are hiding baby bumps.

  28. Mandy says:

    I love what annaloo said about Sofia Vergara’s dress. I had surgery for a perforated ulcer back in April, and I have a scar like that. Maybe I should add sequins?

    I think Heidi and Anna should have switched dresses. Anna is too petite for a high-low hem, you have to be tall or at least have long legs to pull that off.

    Diana Agron’s lacy dress would have been super-cute if it were shorter (remove the lower layer, please).

    I thought Jewel’s dress was lovely, but I love lace.

  29. MymaJane says:

    Anna’s dress looks like a Spanish Matadors outfit…just the female version. Whatever. I’m tired.

  30. Kbomb says:

    Agree with everything except Betty White. She’s so great, and like, 100 – I’d like to cut her some slack 🙂 As for Julie Bowen, chick needs to eat a f&^%ing sandwich!! HAHA “Mermaid Whore”. I would only add the word “Hungry” to that.

  31. crazymary says:

    Did I miss something? Is Rita Wilson pregnant? Sure looks it…

  32. mel says:

    Those were some of the hideous dresses I’ve seen!!!

  33. k says:

    Lauren Graham’s dress is cool.

  34. k says:

    Anna’s dress is cute too

  35. Jasmin says:

    I think with better hair, JJ would have looked a lot nicer….

    Re ty burell’s wife: All I could see on the front of her dress was a big vagoo…. anyone else?

  36. allyson says:

    Julia Ormond, Padma, and January were misjudged on this list. Julia was perfect all the way and Padma and January both looked stunning.

  37. Cinderella says:

    I don’t know who the hell Naya Rivera is either, but nice dress!

  38. kelbear says:

    Heidi Klum should not have worn that at all. Just so not appropriate. And Glenn Close looked horrible. That Dianne girl from glee looked bad too.

  39. Anna says:

    I also loved Jewel, Julie and Lauren’s dresses..

    Rita Wilson was pretty horrible.. and I agree on Heidi Klum.. wrong place!

  40. Megan says:

    I think January’s dress was absolutely stunning! I disagree with a few of them here as well, the ‘doily’ dress is beautiful too.

  41. jc126 says:

    Isn’t Sofia Vergara’s boyfriend in the ICU from an accident the other day? I’d have skipped the Emmys.
    That dress with the brown bottom – appalling!
    Betty White – lovely.
    The one you said “get over yourself, no one knows who you are” – thank you! I hate how at every awards ceremony, a completely unfamous and/or un-nominated actress wears an over-the-top dress. It’s tacky and inappropriate. Like a guest at a wedding trying to outshine the bride or something. I think Elizabeth Banks did it at the Oscars this year.

  42. Fae says:

    I thought January Jones looked incredible- nice to see someone going for a bold statement dress rather than yet another boring plain satin number. I love the fabulous cerulean silk, love that the texture detailing hasn’t overcome the overall form, love that she kept the bling minimal.

  43. mommyesq says:

    Maybe we should cut Sofia Vergara a break (besides the fact she looked GREAT) for not “bringing it,” since her boyfriend has been in ICU and i’m sure styling for the Emmys wasn’t the top of her priority list this week….and i’m sure she was bummed he couldn’t be there with her…….

  44. JuiceinLA says:

    Never saw Duchampals bangs- that dress looked like my 3 year old niece made it out of purple tissue paper in Montessori school.. FUG!@!!

  45. K says:

    Alan Cumming FTW! Love him.

    As for The Emily, yeesh, those bangs have to go. Love her, but ick.

  46. LolaBella says:

    Am not impressed with January Jones. At.All.

    The dress wasn’t completely horrible (I liked the color) but the concept (Oceanlife? Fish scales, Sea-shell neckline) and the 90’s look and feel were not a good choice. Her hair was sloppy and she just looked unpolished.

    Oh Rita, now we know where those crystals from my Grandma’s chandelier have disappeared to. Fug shoes and you really could have made an effort with your dress; your hubby’s work was nominated and he looked handsome in his tux, FFS,

    The top of Anna Paquin’s dress looks like a Matador’s bolero, not a good look for the red carpet.

    Sofia’s dress would look so much better without that stripe down the middle.

    Julia Ormond’s dress was my favorite of the night; beautiful color, perfect fit and so flattering and I actually like the hair as well.

    Dear Lauren Graham: FIRE YOUR STYLIST!

    Dear Heidi Klum: We get it, you’re young, you’re hot, your husband is hot, your body is still rocking after having a bajillion babies, but that dress was totally inappropriate for the Emmys and it looked tacky.

    Loved Kerri Russell’s dress.

    I actually liked Kate Gosslein’s dress. *hangs head in shame*

    Padma’s dress was actually beautiful and fit her well, it’s the fug neckpiece that makes it look like shit.

    Oh Naya, I wore that same look to my cousin’s wedding…in 1994, but I had no choice. What the hell was your excuse?

    Love Eva Longoria’s dress; one of my favorites of the night.

  47. hellen says:

    Can’t add much to what’s already been said, aside from: Holy crap, Glenn Close, you have the worst posture. Straighten up, woman! (Tip: See Heidi Klum.)

    And….KERI RUSSELL PLEASE BUY YOURSELF A BRA!! The girls are not so perky anymore! Although maybe Lindsay would lend you her pink bra – ew.

  48. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Ha, analoo’s on a roll.

    Gee, did Padma even wash her hair?

    I don’t watch awards shows, so I don’t know what Elizabeth Banks wore to the Oscars, but the intent sounds plausible. She’s funny sometimes, but I’ve been slowly souring on her for one too many ‘It’s awful and alienating being so beautiful, that’s why people don’t just assume that I’m an Ivy League alumna (I’m an ivy league alumna). And it’s such a drag being the most talented and well-educated and beautiful peron wherever I go, there’s no one to talk to!’ Ugh, stop.

    I think we have some differences in opinion on these dresses too. They’re close in colour, but there’s no way that Emily Blunt’s dress is uglier than Christina Hendricks’ London Fug conveyer belt malfuntion monstrosity in lilac.

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ dress was like Jennifer Garner to me: too frigging boring to give two damp shits.

    Agree with whoever it was who said that Toni Collette needs to return to her original hair colour. That’s what happens when a lot of ex-pat actors make it big in Hollywood: tan, thin, bleach, standard part in the middle mullet-looking triangle hair. I’d take the Cold Comfort Farm Kate Beckinsale any day over the one who was in Click. Toni’s dress, mercy. Maybe her older sister is holed up with Mr. Bingley and his sniping sister Caroline, so she walked two miles in the rain and mud to go care for her.

    Mindy, I don’t get it. I don’t remember what function is was, but last year she showed up to an event wearing this vibrant yellow or chartreuse dress with simple hair and a dark red lip. She looked so fabulous, I couldn’t for the life of me understand why she didn’t get more attention. Well, now she’s got it…

    Even in the solid black, Eva Longoria’s dress seemed kind of abrupt. If it were a skin suit, it would be composed with the hides of two persons who were fifth cousins, at best.

    Smile Rose, you’re on sad sack camera. You’re getting out-grinned by Elisabeth Moss. Maybe Rose incurred Xenu’s wrath somehow. I don’t know how the guy spends his weekends, cocktails with Pazuzu, probably.

  49. L says:

    Betty white is 88 years old. For a 88 year old-she looks kick ass.

    Also, I love Glenn Close, but that dress was way to young for her. On the pre-show she was with her daughter who was pretty much wearing the same thing. The fabric was off to, it just needed cap sleeves or something.

  50. original kate says:

    first: “mermaid whore” is brilliant. OK, onward:

    january jones: meh.

    heidi: did seal rip off the rest of her dress in the limo on the ride over? maybe their 5th child was conceived moments earlier. that’s what i’m telling myself.

    emily blunt: without the cheeZy sparkles it would have been gorg.

    toni collette: love her. do not love the bottom of that dress. no.

    glenn close can wear whatever the hell she wants. why? because she’s glenn close, that’s why.

    note to elizabeth moss: never wear a dress the color of kitty litter.

    rita wilson: WTF is this shit? hideous. may be one of the worst dresses ever worn by anyone, anywhere. ever.

    julia ormond’s dress is fabulous. hair looks like a windtunnel.

    jewel: i hate pink, but whatever.

    maybe i am in the minority here, but i adored eva longoria’s dress. she bores me to tears, but that dress is very edward gorey.

    betty white: lovely. not a fan of the pastels, but she is lovely.

    lauren graham’s dress reminded me of a piece of modern art that is supposed to represent the psychotic’s dream state within a rational self awareness caused by the unhumanity of man vs. machine in a state of fetid rapture. in other words, i didn’t understand it.

    kerri russell: ugh. bad color, bad fit, bad styling – is that a scrunchy in her hair? and has she stopped eating altogether? kerri, get thee to an in N out burger, pronto!

  51. Amanda says:

    Kate Gosselin would have to be one of the worst ones there. I would call that dress “T*ts in a sling”. The only things that prevents her from being worst dressed is that she isn’t important enough. There’s biggers starts worth bashing.

  52. Catherine says:

    Looks like Rita gained a bit of weight…or maybe it is the dress. Hideous shoes though.
    Padma doesn’t look all that bad as the style fits her. I love her gorgeous dark hair.

  53. LindaR says:

    Diana Agron looks like she is standing on the shoulders of a midget (sorry, LITTLE PERSON)that is wearing the same dress. Just an awful look. Rita Wilson should know better, plus she should have worn nylons, her legs are looking old. (so are mine, that’s why I am saying this)

  54. Amy says:

    Love him, but Ty Burrell’s tux is as atrocious as his wife’s dress. Ugh.

  55. KsGirl says:

    I think that colour looks really, really good on JJones. Perfect for her. Not in love with the style of the dress but the colour combined with her colouring, is fab.

  56. xxodettexx says:

    agree wtih most of the list, with the exceptions of:

    -paquin’s dress, i loved it and her makeup looked good… maybe just me but i would totally wear it!
    -vergara loved sooo lovely without being too hoochy! i loved her and would also wear her dress!

  57. anoneemouse says:

    If only January Jones realized she could look so much better with a $5 hair brush…use it girl!

  58. Sassy says:

    The f*ck? Rita Wilson’s shoes??????? OMG. Did she go basement shopping at Shauna Sand’s house?

  59. daisy says:

    kate gosslins dress looks like it has a urinal on top, lmao

  60. Marjalane says:

    Anyway to check and see if one person is posting under multiple names?! January Jones’ “frock” was HIDEOUS, and it was only outshown by her rats nest hairdon’t. Maybe Bobby Flay’s wife helped her pick it all out. heh.

  61. didn’t watch the Emmys, but man was ANYONE dressed nicely??

  62. sandra says:

    what are you talking about? some of dem dresses were pretty awful but some were gorgeous especially eva longoria. it was nicely fitted, perfect shapefor her just the colour was a little safe!!

  63. malachais says:

    Rita’s shoes are pretty awesome. It takes a bold woman to wear something like that.

  64. jean says:

    Anna Paquin looks like an insane female matador!

  65. jane16 says:

    Agree with all of them. Hilarious post!

  66. Jeri says:

    Good assessment. The only excuse for Rita’s dress & shoes was if a very deserving charity was receiving a HUGE DONATION if she dared to wear that crap.

  67. Cam says:

    Rita Wilson, WTF WERE YOU THINKING? Someone should burn those shoes, seriously. And Dianna’s dress would have look OK if it only had one layer, not my style anyway, but loved her hair and make up, she’s just so beautiful!

    I actually liked Heidi Klum’s dress, maybe not for the Emmys, but I love short dresses, she should have saved it for another occasion … maybe? without the necklace though.

  68. Cheyenne says:

    I thought Vergara, Agron, and Betty White looked great. Longoria was so-so. The rest were godawful.

  69. GatsbyGal says:

    Okay, all of those are fugly as hell, EXCEPT PADMA LAKSHMI are you kidding me?!

    I think she’s gorgeous, and that dress was gorgeous, and her hair was gorgeous!

  70. Stephanie says:

    I think Diana Agron is beautiful but the dress was hideous.

  71. mollination says:

    I don’t know what’s going on right now, but I seriously want to do Alan Cumming after looking at that picture. I cannot explain what this reaction is, but I have a GINORMOUS crush now. haha

  72. daisy says:

    Oh and kaiser. that thing that was wrong with Glenns dress that you couldn’t put your finger on is that shes in a gold sleeping bag with a torn piece of sos pad over one boob.

  73. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    OMG Mollination I was trying think of a polite way to say I wish he wasn’t gay so I could bone him in my fantasies but I don’t think there is a polite way. However I am on the same page as you. I just like want Alan Cummings to ravish me right now.

  74. Manda3 says:

    Wow, ugly dresses, ugly shoes, You’d think they would look in the mirror before they wore the dress out. Like ask anyone, How does this dress look on me? Well hideous. You should not wear it or those plastic diamond shoes. And as far as Kate and her wal mart look, why is she even there? I am so tired of this woman. C’MON kids 18 birthday… She won’t matter. They need to stop that bitch face anyways.

  75. Camille says:

    I agree with with pretty much everything you said Kaiser. Some terrible red carpet fashion here. The Fashion Police show is going to be amusing this week. 😆

    A few of my thoughts:

    January Jones is such a pretty woman, but god that dress was hideous!! Hated it.

    And OMG @ Rita Wilson! Yikes.

    I actually liked Anna Paquin’s styling, and her dress looked better in movement than in still photos. I think her hair and makeup/face looked gorgeous. Everyone seemed to have that similar hair style though.

    Sofia Vergara looked super cheap, such a nasty, cheap looking dress, I don’t think it did anything for her at all. And can’t she wear her hair any other way?

    Lauren Graham is such a pretty woman, but her hair and that dress, uggo.

    Heidi Klum = So Tacky, indeed.

    Toni Collette, holy hell, that was a scroll down dress if ever I saw one. We shall call that one the Mud & Poo Disaster from now on. Just awful.

    I will give Better While a pass, simply because she is awesome and at her age I think comfort should come before anything else. LOVE her.

  76. LondonLady says:

    thought lauren graham and jane krasowski were really on trend, sorry. What was Heidi Klum thinking though- you are right, looks like someone mistakenly hacked the last two inches off her dress.

  77. coup de grazia says:

    it honestly blows my mind every time i read some fashion coverage on this site – EVERY time – half of the best looks on are on the “hideous looks” page. amazing. kaiser, seriously.

    while some of the looks on this page did suck, january jones, diane argon (sp?), sofia vergara, the one with the space cadet white/silver dress, eva longoria (and i hate her), were all among the best dressed, easily.

    my top picks: january jones, diane argon, kim kardashian, claire danes, JLD,

    cb bites it for fashion coverage.

  78. Mistral says:

    Well, I disagree on January Jone’s dress. I love it, and I love her hair/makeup.

  79. di butler says:

    I am loving the niceness of you calling Glenn Close “au naturel.” It made me lol. Obviously you never watched Damages. I love her, but her face doesn’t move. It was one of the most talked about things on all the tvblogs.

    January Jones, just shagged and forced to wear someone else’s really ugly dress because she got spooge on hers.

  80. Maritza says:

    I agree completely with every work Kaiser wrote.

  81. Lisa Turtle says:

    I disagree with a lot of your picks on this list… but I especially disagree about Miss January Jones. I think thats a high fashion dress that is hard to wear and she really pulled it off. She looked beautiful.

  82. la chica says:

    loved the January Jones dress.

    loved Diane Agron’s dress. it was just the wrong color for her skin tone.

  83. canadianchick says:

    I’m sorry that Sophia’s guy is in icu, but that dress looked like she rode a unicycle in the rain without fenders-mud stripe city. Her stylists fault, I think, as Vergara’s mind would’ve been on other things

    I kind of liked Julie Bowen’s dress-but I like assymetrical fluffy things.

    January Jones-I got insomnia just looking at it.

  84. excuse me says:

    Kaiser~ I agree with you about the dresses, hair, and makeup all the way. Except for Eva Longoria. I love her and she is always classy and beautiful. Otherwise, you were very accurate in your assessments.

  85. Mouse says:

    Elizabeth Moss reminds me of Mena Suvari.

  86. SammyHammy says:

    Rita looks like a stoned pregnant woman. What a weird look for her…! She usually does so much better.

    Betty White looked absolutely perfect and there was no reason to be critical of her in the least.

  87. Twez says:

    A few people seem to like January Jones’s dress, but all I could think was that the bodice of it looked like bright blue taffeta coffee filters made into a bra.

    Speaking of taffeta or taffeta-like fabric, what the hell was up with the prom dress looks on a lot of these women? It was like a late-eighties wedding in Vegas.

  88. Kat says:

    Emily Blunt and Jewel both look divine. The cut and colour of Emily’s dress, with the embellishments: adore it.

  89. daisy says:

    jewel does look awesome

  90. I Choose Me says:

    Agree with everything you said except the Padme dress. I really liked that one. Her hair though, that’s a different thing.

  91. Aqua says:

    O.K. I’m going to disagree with some of your choices 1 Sofia Vergara looks great in everything she wears,she could do no wrong in my book. 2 Dianna Agron looks absolutely lovely, love everything about it.3 Emily Blunt, it does look just a little off, but I like it anyways I think the top just needs adjusting.4 Keri Russel I don’t like anything about it.As for Betty White I just love her no matter what she wears! she’s untouchable and unstoppable as far as I’m concerned.

  92. Pia says:

    I could not possibly disagree more on Emily Blunt and Alan Cumming. Her dress is lovely, and Alan Cumming is…ALAN CUMMING! He cannot by judged by conservative standards. He is fantastic!

  93. bb says:

    The cone bra is a bit much but January Jones’s dress was my favourite of the evening. Not many people could pull off a dress like that but January did I think – yes, she’s very thin, but a more voluptuous woman would have looked like a blue wedding cake.

    I also like Anna Paquin’s dress, but not on her. She’s too short for it and it swamps her. It needs someone with a smaller head and a longer body!

    Hated: Elizabeth Moss – ugh, it looked like Granny’s bedsheets. She’s a pretty girl but she keeps fugging herself over. Heidi Klum – just vulgur and inappropriate. Rita Wilson – waaay to busy and makes her look fat.

  94. jayem says:

    I mostly agree with you, but I think Jewel’s dress and styling (hair, makeup, earrings) were so pretty. And Heidi gets a pass cause she’s a supermodel and they can wear whatever. I actually like her necklace.

    Elizabeth Moss’s dress was pretty, but it needed to be in a color. Any color.

    Emily Blunt’s dress is a pretty color, but it looks like it has barnacles on it.

    Forget Padma’s dress (which wasn’t SO bad) and focus on her hair. What the hell happened to it?

    Now I’m off to go see what everyone else thought…

  95. anna says:

    eva longoria looked nice!! Dianna agron and lauren graham didn’t bother me much either..

  96. Can I simply say what a relief to find someone who truly knows what they’re talking about on the internet.
