Best Emmy Black: America Ferrera

She’s perfect. And she glowed. And she lost to Tina Fey. Isn’t it an honour to lose to Tina Fey? I’d lose to Tina Fey every day and feel complete. Check out America Ferrera in a black gown she was born to wear. If she’s glowing it might be because she’s happy to be rid of Lindsay Lohan for now. Full Story

Best Emmy Canadian: Sandra Oh

She brought her parents. And she was tiny. Ultra tiny. But at least she wasn’t her usual ultra bitch. Not that that’s a bad thing. That Sandra Oh has a bite. That she is not an easy woman. That she can be testy and irritable and totally unaccommodating. That she is annoyed often and doesn’t hesitate to communicate it. Full Story

Most Emmy Endearing: Jenna Fischer

She’s not a fashion girl. So the dress… it’s obviously not the best. Far from the best. But it was a sweet effort, if not the most fashionable. Let’s focus instead on premiere week. The Office is back on Thursday and do we worry for Jim and Pam? It’s not television if there’s no difficulty. Full Story

Worst Emmy Wrinkle: Nicolette Sheridan

It’s a bold idea. But is bold good? I have a thing about wrinkles. It’s from my mother. She irons everything. And she would say, if she could see this dress… Chow chow. Chow is wrinkly in Cantonese. We like to repeat adjectives twice for added effect. Chow chow may be bold…but chow chow not good. Full Story

Best Emmy Comeback: Debra Messing

She has been underwhelming for a long time. But last night, Debra Messing came roaring back. Love this dress so much. And it’s perfect on her. And she didn’t try too hard the way she normally does. No more Will & Grace can be humbling. She certainly needed humbling too. Word is, by the end of Will & Grace she thought she was Sarah Jessica Parker. Full Story

Most Emmy Disappointing: Mary Louise Parker

Love her. Which is why it’s so sad. That she shopped at a truck stop in Vegas. It’s the ruching down the front. And the bedazzled straps. You know who wears a dress like this? It’s That Girl from your husband’s office who drunk calls him every weekend. The one you’d like to throw down at the Christmas party but end up sparing out of pity when she walks into the venue wearing this dress. Full Story

Worst Emmy Ruffles: Teri Hatcher

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 22, 2008 06:29:23 September 22, 2008 06:29:23

The good news is… her face doesn’t look so terrifying. Amazing how some people put other people into perspective, right? Constant shots of Madonna and Granny Freeze have numbed us all, no pun intended. The bad news… she’s shopping at the mall. You know those ladies’ stores at the mall? They have names like After Six. Full Story

Best Emmy Ruffles: Brooke Shields

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 22, 2008 06:25:29 September 22, 2008 06:25:29

On live tv it was spectacular. Even more so because Brooke Shields is not a weak woman. Not physically at least. Brooke is not a waif. She looks strong but not herm. Feminine but not tarty. And pretty but not frozen. Brooke Shields is younger than Nicole Kidman. Two years. Hard to believe, non? Photos from Wenn.com  Full Story

Worst Emmy Poppins: Heidi Klum

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 22, 2008 06:17:00 September 22, 2008 06:17:00

If you’re Heidi Klum, after squeezing 15 children out of that tiny body, and having it bounce back so enviously quickly, would you dress like half of Mary Poppins? This is what she wore during arrivals. She changed more times than she’s had babies but still… the dress she chose when she’d be most photographed was an Armani. Full Story

Emmy 2008 Wrap Up

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 22, 2008 06:12:00 September 22, 2008 06:12:00

Aside from a few exceptions, every dress came from Tacky Town. Which is good news for us. Impossible to include every photo, every celebrity but hopefully what’s included will suffice? Especially the sucky ones? Style commentary will follow but first a few thoughts: Laura Linney is OVERDUE. When Oscar??? Ricky Gervais to host next year… with Steve Carell? Anything but those five fools. Full Story
