Being the fashionista that I am, I am not opposed to the fact that award shows are not actually about who wins the awards but about the wonderful clothes the nominees are wearing! 

So who’s outfits were your favorites at the Emmys this year? 

My personal and completely biased opinion was that Anna Paquin’s Alexander McQueen gown was pure genius. Paquin stole the show completely. Not only did she honor the late designer, but chose something that represented her as a super sophisticated and strong woman.

 

As a die hard True Blood fan, I love everything that has do to with it (no matter how cheesy) I also enjoyed her choice of black…where the rest of the women chose soft feminine colors. I’m curious however if you think it hints towards her love for the dark vampire side? 

 

Above, the ravishing and curvacious Christina Hendricks from Mad Men is wearing Zac Posen, with a Leiber clutch. Next to her Kyra Sedgwick in Monique Lhuillier, with a VBH clutch brings berry inspired colors out into the open for fall.  

 Here Emily Deschanel, in a tiered grape colored Max Azria Atelier gown topped off with Neil Lane jewels looks sweet while still commanding attention. Next to her, above, is the petite Nina Dobrev in a sparkling champagne one shoulder dress by Zuhair Murad that she paired with Brian Atwood shoes and Chopard jewels.
