The 2009 Emmys Best Dressed


Despite a banging hangover, I have handed over that damn tiny computer to my assistant and we're on the plane back to New York. Praise the Lord and pass the Bloody Marys.

As usual with red carpet award shows, the Emmy Awards were a tremendous yawn. Too many actresses play it safe with their silhouettes, jewelry and hair. I miss Bjorn. Or is it Borg? Whatever, the crazy singer in the swan get-up.

However, some actresses were absolutely top-notch, and herewith I present my personal list of the Emmy Awards Best Dressed.

Christina Hendricks showcases her bombshell figure in L'Wren Scott navy and black lace:

Glenn Close's sexy black ruched dress was even better in the back, with cut-out detail that was sexy without being overdone. Look out, Helen Mirren!

Sigourney Weaver can be counted on to look stunning on the red carpet, and once again she delivers in this red silk David Meister creation

Chandra Wilson celebrated her bounteous beauty in a black Pamela Rolland gown with white crystal beading:

The unfairly overlooked Lisa Edelstein (Dr. Cuddy on House MD) went for old-fashioned sexiness with smoky eyes, tousled hair and a gorgeous navy dress with accents of white on the top and bottom.

Speaking of curves, Vanessa Williams was spectacular in this teal Rafael Cennamo silk bustier dress:

You might have guessed that I preferred the curvy ladies over the younger stick figures who were dressed in quiet good taste. Boldness is beauty!

My Worst Dressed is coming next. After another Bloody Mary and some aspirin.

I second every opinion! You are right on the nose with the best dressed divas! :)

Love those dresses! And these actresses really do look great! :) And you're right, Glenn Close could give stiff competition to Helen Mirren!

And it's interesting that you have included Lisa Edelstein since I just bought season 4 of Felicity last week (bad idea to get a TV show box set during the week!) and she plays a guest-starring role that season. Never made the link with House MD...

Thank you, dahlings! Most actresses opt for the Movie-Star-In-A-Box look and are just too dull to include.
