Emmy frocks, good and bad.

Filed under: Caesars Through the Fence — marshacanham @ 6:58 pm

We delay the posting of another chapter for Through A Dark Mist by the far more crucial posting of Emmy frocks.  I’m one of the dinosaurs who loves seeing Hollywood go back to being glamorous, so there were a lot of hits and not too many swan-suit misses.  I must say, however, I was hard-pressed to find a true number one because there were so many that tied for the top spot.  By a nose-hair though, I think my vote has to go to ….Sofia Vergara

Red seemed to be the theme, because most of the frocks I liked were in varying shades thereof.  Kate Winslett looked stunning. Martha Plimpton glittered in glam. Glee girl Lea Michele looked gorgeous…love the sleeve caps and the back which wasn’t shown much.


I wasn’t keen on Kerry Washington’s red dud…I’m not a fan of see through skirts on the bottom, just looks like you wrapped your mother’s bedroom sheers around your waist before you dashed out the door.

Clair Danes always looks great, and this blue number stood out bee-youtifully

Unlike this bridesmaid-gone-bad frock Cobie Smulders was wearing.

And while we’re talking bridesmaids…

While I loved the color of Archie Panjabi’s frock, it looked like it was falling off her boobs…what boobs she has.

Same criticism of Cat Deeley’s choice. She’s over six feet tall, you would think she’d go for something stunningly bright, not drab fleshy shades, and again, the top looks like something about to slide off a cutout doll.

Is this really Kelly Osborn?  Did aliens finally snatch the goth girl away for good?  YAY!!!!  She looked gorgeous and all grown up. Finally.

Maria Bello…stunning dress, she could have at least combed her hair.

Jennifer Carpenter…same thing. What’s with the schleppy hair? Sheesh.

As for Katie Holmes, she needs to learn to stand up straight, shoulders back, don’t look so gaunt, don’t try to hide your height just because you’re married to a short-ass, and don’t wear that shade of blue.

Now for the worst of the lot….Heidi Klum…. and I can only guess she wore one of the Project Runway designs, and this was the best of the lot from a bad challenge. Blah.

Picture her beside Alan Cumming and WOWZA.

There were more…good and not so good, but these were my pics.  Come on award season!  We need more red carpets *G*



  1. Hmmmm….can’t believe you left out the worst of the evening, LP . . . and that would be Juliana Margulies Ugh. Awful. Horrible. Looked like she was dressing for Queen Victoria’s coronation, which she was getting ready to crash–having acquired the…ummm…..bones for her dress from some poor soldier who is now without his armor. Or maybe he’s having to use said armor…which is now covered in white fabric (or whatever color it was) and gaudy shiny thingies found at the bottom of some pirate’s chest of not-too-valuable stolen stones and then affixed nefariously to a long skirt. The woman couldn’t even move, it was so stiff and ill-fitting. Hideous. Just my opinion, of course…which, obviously, I’m reluctant to share. ROFL

    • AUGH. I knew there was one I forgot. Probably because I was hoping to scrub it from my mind. Julianna usually dresses so well, it was just a shock. Yes, those globs of plastic looked like a Bedazzler gone nuts. Or a glue gun that misfired. And goodness only knows what you would see if you stood next to her. That stiff bodice stuck straight out and it looked as if her boobs would just be sitting there with nothing to keep them from flopping out if she bent over.

  2. Good job, Marsha. I still think Lea Michelle’s was not good on her. It didn’t fit right from the front. I don’t think Kelly’s dress really fits her right, either. Also, Gwyneth Paltrow, blah. Did love Martha Plimpton.

  4. OMG! You cracked me up!
    I think you need to replace that, what’s her name, you know the one that her face will fall off melting if she goes out in the sun! Yes, Joan Rivers;)

    BTW: Last week I read SWEPT AWAY and I just loved it:)
    My first time with MC books, but not my last!!!
