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.
<!–I am finally coming out and admitting that I am a HUGE fan of the television show True Blood. I had not grasped the “cool factor” of the vampire trend until I started watching this show. Now however, I have become enthralled with vampires and True Blood.
In this show, the charming Anna Paquin plays Sookie Stackhouse who is, among other things, a true Southern belle. Sookie is a barmaid at a local restaurant (who happens to be able to read minds) and she falls in love with Vampire Bill when he stops into the restaurant for some “True Blood” (synthetic vampire blood).
Soon enough, the darling and naive Sookie finds herself smack dab in the middle of a human vs. vampire war. Sookie finds herself in a difficult position as a mortal in a war of immortals! However, Sookie manages to stay alive through the second season without becoming a vampire.
I recommend this show for anyone who likes a little bit of action (fighting), a little bit of drama, and of course vampires!! Season three of True Blood premiers June 13th, so remember to watch out for it or for vampires on the loose!
Sookie is not only pretty but she also wears the cutest floral dresses I’ve yet to see. Here she sits with Bill at a vampire bar in a red and pink floral halter dress. Sookie doesn’t seem to mind that she is the only one that hangs out with vampires that doesn’t wear all black!
