Best and Worst Dressed Emmys 2012

Yay! I get to be a bitch! My favorite thing. Expect the Worst Dress List to be really brutal. Let's get to it.

WORST: Lena Dunham in Prada. Oh Prada must be in crisis mode right now, the least this bitch could have done was stand up straight. Would that take away from her quirk too much? She's like a fat Zooey Deschanel.
BEST: Emily Van Camp in probably my favorite look of the night in this grey J. Mendel gown. It's so simple and so perfectly tailored to her, and grey always always always looks great on blondes.

WORST: This should have an 'absolute worst' catagory unto itself. Leslie Mann in a straight off the runway Naeem Khan dress. Looks great on a 6'2 model, and it is high fashion, but not at all awesome on the red carpet, and the color is gross.
BEST: Kat Jennings in an eye-catching Scarlett O'Hara-esque J. Mendel number. J. Mendel is like award crack. Everyone is obsessed with him, and this was absolutely the right choice for Kat, it accentuated her ahem, assets, and really spoke to her personality.
BEST: Kelly Osbourne is taking the Zac Posen trend and running with it, and why not he looks great on her! That color is fantastic, and she looks incredibly hot in it. Simple and elegant.
WORST: Nicole Kidman in Antonio Berardi. This dress is really strange and more dire as a fashion crime, it's boring, it also makes her look about two sizes bigger than she actually is.
WORST: Sarah Hyland in a custom made Marchesa. And it really does look like something a teenager would put together for their fake Twilight prom. Also looks like something Miley Cyrus would wear and that's never a compliment.
BEST: Amy Poehler looks stop-doing-everything-else-and-look-at-her in this plunging Stella McCartney gown, getting perhaps the best divorce revenge ever on ex-hubby Will Arnett.
WORST: Heidi Klum in an ill-fitting Alexandre Vauthier gown. I don't like this at all, the color is awful pale pastel, and it just doesn't fit her right and the shoes look like they are right out of an 80's fancy dress party. This is how you misfire at divorce revenge.
WORST: Jessica Lange can't find whom she was wearing but it sucked. She is far too old for no sleeves. I had nightmares.
BEST: Lucy Liu in this really cool, fashion risk of a dress by Versace. I know it's the one going to get the most press and I'd just like to throw my hat into the pro pile.
WORST: I love Monique Lhuillier but I hated this dress that Gennifer Goodwin wore. The hemline is strange, and it's just messy, it doesn't look refined and it's just a little too bright. This might be up to par with that other awful Monique Lhuillier dress Sarah Michelle Gellar wore last year to the Golden Globes.
BEST: Hayden Panatierre in this straight off the runway at fashion week Marchesa dress was absolutely stunning. It was a fashion risk, it was beautifully tailored and impeccably draped, interesting color combo. Win all around.
BEST: Mad Men star Jessica Pare in my favorite designer Jason Wu. I love this dress. that's all.
WORST: Jane Levy (who?) in Pamella Roland (again, who?). One word. Snoozefest.
WORST: Ok there was a trend with chartreuse mermaid dresses last year and I said a silent prayer that it would be over after that but Julie Bowen had to bring it back with this awful Monique Lhullier...thing.
BEST: This is how you properly rock chartreuse, and also dress appropriately for your age. Are you listening Jessica Lange and Julie Bowen? Julianne Moore in a classically beautiful Christian Dior. J'adore.
WORST: Lena Headey hurts my eyes in an OMG-what-the-fuck-is-that-that's-an-Armani-Prive??
WORST: Sofia Vergara in Zuhair Murad. I love this designer, but this color is hideous and she looks like she should be flipping letters on Wheel of Fortune slash a living incarnation of the Chryster Building
BEST: Tina Fey in Vivienne Westwood, a departure from her favorite Zac Posen, but she looks fantastic. I could not pick my jaw off the floor the whole time she was talking. It fits her like a glove.
WORST: Zooey Decschanel is no stranger to the worst dressed list, and this Reem Acra number is disastrous. The bottom half looks like set dressing for a middle school play version of The Little Mermaid, and the top half is about 3 sizes too small for her tits.

WORST: And lets finish on the lowest note ever and veteran of the worst dressed list, it's their champion January Jones who has been reading too much of Fifty Shades of Grey and watching too much Black Swan (2011). And it's a Zac Posen, this makes me sad. It's fucking hideous, and I'm not crazy about the goth make up either.
