Emmys Recap

This may be a few days too late, but I did want to share with you all my top three favorite dresses from the Emmys this past weekend. I have to be honest; I was not quite as impressed as I wanted to be with the stars' outfits. Most seemed to be almost there, but not quite perfect in my opinion. Below are the three that stood out the most for me.

Diana Agron: I love her get-up for a few reasons. The color of her dress is not only beautiful on its own, but it compliments her skin, hair and features beautifully. The cut of the dress is also unique, and while some critics thought it to be unflattering, I think it balanced her shape out quite well since she is actually a bit bottom heavy. She accessorized in a very smart manner with statement earrings (I love them), a diamond bracelet, and fun clutch. What pulls it all together is her hair and makeup. Her hair is pulled up in a modern take on a retro up-do and her makeup is clean with a clear focus on her eyes. The teal eye-liner was the perfect touch!

Clare Danes: This look is a bit similar to Diana's outfit, though much edgier. First off I would like to point out that the fit of this dress is absolutely fantastic on Clare. She has always been a more daring person to watch on the red carpet, and this is no exception. Some people thought this dress was too busy, and I can see where they are coming from, however, since she kept accessories to a minimum (just a fun pair of earrings), and her hair simple, the focus is all on the dress, where it should be. Her make-up just adds to the over all edginess of the look.

Julia Stiles: What caught my eye most about this look is the detailing and fit of the dress. I wish the color was a bit richer, but Julia pulls this dress off with her fair skin and blond hair. If she were fair with darker hair it may have washed her out. The side swept waves add to the overall ethereal look, making this a very cohesive outfit. If she had her hair up I would have liked to see a statement necklace, but the way it is is just perfect.
And there you have it, my three favorite looks from the night. Like I said before, I wish there was more that I could have been impressed with. I would have liked to see some daring dresses, or super funky accessories, but it seems as though the girls played it safe this time around. What dresses were your favorites? Do you agree with my top three or do you think I missed someone?
