Red Carpet: Emmy Awards 2011

Y'all. It's been a long, long day. I was at church from 7:15am till 6:00pm. I had several rehearsals, meetings, performances and such, but all day I have been looking forward to the Emmy's! Y'all know how much I love the television. And y'all know how much I love the red carpet. 

As soon as I got home from church, I changed clothes, cooked dinner, got my laptop, pen, paper, dinner, and Diet Coke and got to work on the red carpet specials that I DVR'd.  I will finish my evening with a slice of italian cream cake. Life is good. Here's what I've got for you tonight:

(I did something a little different tonight. On some of the photos I wrote my comments directly on the photo so I could pinpoint the actual objects I'm discussing)

This is Angela from The Office. On the show her character is very plain so this is a WOW moment for her. LOVE the dress. Beautiful, classy, timeless. 

JUST ONCE I want to hang out with them. Amy Poehler always looks good in blue and her husband Will Arnett cracks me up. He's so goofy. 

Cat Deeley from SYTYCD wore a GORGEOUS Monique Lhullier dress. Monique is one of my faves.

Christine Baranski looks fantastic. Great dress. So flattering on her....

Claire Danes' dress is a great cut but the color scheme reminds me of something I could've gotten at Gadzooks in the 9th grade. 

Cobie Smulders (aka Robin Scherbatzsky) looks AMAZING. That color is divine on her!

I give Dianna Agron two thumbs up for modesty but felt that the cut wasn't doing anything for her. Color is beautiful, I love blue on the red carpet. 

Elizabeth Moss chose something very elegant by Marchesa. She looks stunning. 

1. This color does nothing for her. 2. The dress is a bit too froo-froo for me. 

I am not sure what is going on with the top of her dress. 

Well, well, well, if it isn't Julia Stiles?! Welcome back! Where've you been? 

Why this length?! Seriously? Why? You were so close to a great dress if you were to add 16 inches!

She actually looks pretty stinkin' cute. 

Everyone is ranting and raving about Lea Michele. I liked the back better than the front. 

Marchesa does make a great gown. The structure of the back really is amazing. She may be trying too hard with her sexy face pose, though. 

Maria's earrings are beaaaauuuuutiful!!!

For as gorgeous as she is, I found this dress underwhelming and an odd choice. She looked like she could be going to a funeral. Very lovely, but just not a WOW moment for her. But she would look good in a clown suit. 

I am generally not a fan of dresses that are the color of mustard. I just don't think it's flattering on anyone. 

Hey! It's the office gang!

Does anyone else feel like this doesn't fit her!? It's just odd. Not so sure about this one. 

I loooooved this dress. Jewel tones are great for red carpets, and that belt is MAJOR (to quote Rachel Zoe)

Sarah Hyland from Modern Family looked pretty and youthful. Such a fun color. 

I was so excited for Modern Family. They won so many awards and I love that show. I was EXTREMELY disappointed that Steve Carell didn't win for his final season of The Office. He never won an Emmy for his performance as Michael Scott. :( 

That's my Emmy post, people! If you've missed years past, check out my Emmy award posts from 2010, 2009, and 2008


  1. you and nina dobrev are totally twins! :)

  2. The Carpeting Specials is produced on a loom
    quite similar to woven fabric. The pile can be plush or berber. Plush Carpeting Specials
    is a cut pile and Berber carpet is a loop pile. There are new styles of carpet
    combining the two styles called cut and loop Laminate Wood Flooring.
    Normally many coloured yarns are used and this process is capable of producing intricate patterns from pre-determined designs.
