2012 Emmy Awards: Julianne Hough in Georges Hobeika Couture

 

 

Celeb:  Julianne Hough

Designer:  Georges Hobeika Couture

Event:  2012 Emmy Awards, Los Angeles

Verdict:  I think this sparkly turquoise and silver Georges Hobeika Couture dress is gorgeous.  I love the sweetheart neckline and the mermaid shape is super sexy!  Buuuut, what I don’t understand about this look?  Her hair!  It is absolutely horrendous!  When I saw her on the red carpet I couldn’t even concentrate on the loveliness of this dress….all I could think about was how much I hated her hair.  I mean, it is awful.  Obviously.  Unfortunately for Julianne, this look is ruined with this hairstyle.  For me anyway.  Great dress, pretty makeup….but the hair….ugh.

What do you think?  Do you like this Georges Hobeika Couture gown on Julianne?  Do you like her retro-ish pinned-up hairstyle?  Love this look or loathe it?  Yay or nay?

LA Dance Project Dinner: Jaime King in Jason Wu

 

Celeb:  Jaime King

Designer:  Jason Wu (dress and heels), Van Cleef & Arpels (jewels)

Event:  Van Cleef & Arpels Dinner for LA Dance Project, Los Angeles

Verdict:  I LOVE THIS!!  Jaime looks absolutely stunning in this sheer black chiffon Jason Wu gown!  I love everything about this:  the halter-style neck, the lace, the double peplum….it is all fantastic!  SO GORGEOUS!  This look is ultra glamorous!  Jaime looks chic and sexy.  Dramatic eyes and a slicked-back ‘do completed this beautiful look.

*Side note*  When I first saw this, I immediately thought “WOW, Lindsay Lohan finally cleaned herself up!”  Then I realized.  That’s not Lindsay.  That’s Jaime.  So, there’s that.  Extremely good for Lindsay.  Not so good for Jaime.  Even so, though, Jaime looks hot!

What do you think?  Do you like Jaime in this sheer black Jason Wu creation?  Love it or loathe it?  Yay or nay?

2012 Emmy Awards: Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vauthier

Celeb:  Heidi Klum

Designer:   Alexandre Vauthier (gown), Lorraine Schwartz (jewels)

Event:  2012 Emmy Awards, Los Angeles

Verdict:  Well, I know many of you may not agree, but I think Heidi looks really lovely!  I am not bored with this in the slightest!  I mean, because of Heidi’s recent divorce drama, I think a lot of people expected her to hit the red carpet in something super tight and ultra-sexy, something that screams “in your face, Seal!”  But with this look, I feel like she did the exact opposite.  This light bluish-teal Alexandre Vauthier gown is light and airy, very feminine and pretty.  It has a very ethereal feel to it.  And I really think she looks great!  Her body looks fantastic and this color looks great against her tan skin.  This look is simple:  romantic.  And I like it.  I do have to admit, though, her accessories are a bit too matchy-matchy for my taste.  They, too, are pretty, but everything is all one color.  I think this might have been a bit improved (in the styling/accessories department) had she worn jewels and heels that were not the exact same color as her dress.  Other than that, though, I’m sold on this.  I give Heidi an A+ for her Emmy style!

What do you think?  Do you like Heidi in this Alexandre Vauthier gown?  Love it or loathe it?  Yay or nay?

Newly Blonde: Natalie Portman

Soooo, word on the street is that Natalie Portman has gone blonde.  Well, not really word on the street….more like every news outlet reported it, like, last week, so it would seem that I am a bit late to the party.  Oh wells.  Natty is now a blonde.

See for yourself….

blondes do have more fun….

I like it.  I think Natalie is quite pretty, so she looks good blonde or brunette….or whatever.  I do think I prefer her with darker hair, but the blonde looks nice for a change.  Let’s face it people….Natalie shaved her head (remember V for Vendetta?) and still looked hot.  Yeah.  That’s right.   A bald hottie.  So, obviously blonde is no biggie.

What do you think?  Do you like Natalie with blonde hair?  Or do you prefer her brunette?

2012 Emmy Awards: Ashley Judd in Carolina Herrera

Oh my….

 

 

 

Celeb:  Ashley Judd

Designer:  Carolina Herrera (gown), Sergio Rossi (heels)

Event:  2012 Emmy Awards, Los Angeles

Verdict:  Well, the only thing I can really say about this is: yuck.  I don’t really like anything about this.  And it makes me very sad to see such a beautiful lady in such a hideous get-up.  Ashley is gorgeous.  Clearly she needs to ditch her stylist (or hire one if she picked this out herself!).   First of all, the dress is not cute.  At all.  I don’t care for the color, I hate the big, jeweled flower and I hate the ginormous bow around her neck.  Secondly, it looks like it doesn’t fit her properly.  I feel like the dress almost looks loose through her chest and in the bodice and hips.  And I am all for a mermaid silhouette, but this mermaid-style bottom looks awkward.  Aaaaand…..let us not forget the hairdo.  Oh good God, Ashley!  How could you leave your house (or salon….whatever) with a GIANT BEEHIVE.  This hair, this dress…it’s just bad.  All of it.  If I were grading Ashley on her Emmy attire, she would most certainly flunk.  F!

What do you think?  Do you like this Carolina Herrera gown on Ashley?  Am I being too harsh?  Yay or nay?
