So, how about those Emmys, you guys? Did you watch them? Did you love them? Were you outraged or overjoyed by the results? Or do you not care about all those silly awards, and you’re just here for the fashion?

Man, I sure hope it’s that last one. Because we’re going to talk about dresses right now.

But first of all, before you get too excited, let me just tell you that the fashion last night wasn’t all that spectacular. There were some pretty good dresses, and a few mediocre ones, but I didn’t see any that were like “wow, this is absolutely horrifying,” which is really a shame. I feel like there hasn’t been a gigantic awful mess of a dress at any award shows recently, and I’m starting to get upset about it.

All right, but let’s start with the pretty good dresses, all right? The first one is Zooey Deschanel‘s dress up there, which I realize that not all of you will like, but I liked it way too much to leave it off the list.

Then there’s Ginnifer Goodwin wearing a pretty adorable frock:

And here’s Kat Dennings, who continues to be one of my absolute favorites:

Ok, and here’s Kelly Osbourne. Her face looks kind of … different, I guess, and even though I can’t stand her, you have to give it up for a nice dress when you see one:

And finally, January Jones stepped up and wore what was probably my favorite dress of the night:

See what I mean? None of them were outstanding or anything (though I do really, really like January’s dress), but they were pretty good, right? So let’s go on to the sort of bad ones.

First off, Claire Danes. And I know she’s pregnant, but come on now:

This one hurts, but Melissa McCarthy deserves to be on this list too. There’s such a thing as good plus size fashion, there really, really is, and this just isn’t that:

Last, and probably least for me, is the beautiful Sofia Vergara, who chose to rip her dress off a 17-year-old pageant girl with a thing for mermaids:

So yeah, nothing too phenomenal, nothing too shitty. But what did you guys think?

    Unf, Kat Dennings.

    I’m so totally team Kat Dennings – that woman is FABULOUS! Not a fan of what Ginnifer & Melissa were wearing, and re:Sophia – she’ll look good in a potato sack. She’s got the personality to support it lol.

    Kat Dennings is just so fucking perfect, bloody hell. And I think Sofía Vergara looks good! I also love January Jones’ dress.

  4. snidely says:

    The ones you picked for the best were the ones most picked for the worst.

  5. meh says:

    Kat Dennings needs to go up a size or two in order for that dress to work. She looks stupid.

  6. Kate says:

    I thought Hayden Panettiere’s dress was pretty great. Looked like she was going to the Emmy’s on Mount Olympus…

    I LOVE Kelly Osbourne. From watching Fashion Police. I had never heard of her before that.

  10. J-Kitt says:

    Love Kelly Osbourne’s look, but Dennings and Deschanel both look like their dresses are about to fall off due to their substantial/not so substantial chests.

    Kat Dennings and Kelly Osborne were my favorites!
