2 In Style

What was your favorite?

I wrestled Russ for the remote last night as I had to hear what dresses were making reporter’s best and worst list after Sunday night’s Emmy Award’s show.

It’s so funny because one person’s favorite is on the top of another person’s worst dressed list.

I was enthralled by Sofia Vergara in her red gown designed by Vera Wang. The way the designer wrapped fabric, twisted and arranged it to follow the amazing curves of Sofia’s body was pure genius. Many people may wish for a body like that but I know dressing lots of curves has its challenges. Vera Wang adorned those curves masterfully. It was just right.

In a structured white gown by Giorgio Armani, Julianna Marguiles was at the top of some lists for best dressed. Although it wouldn’t have been on my best dressed list, it was a great study in a completely different kind of design. The bodice had its own definition — which had basically nothing to do with her body and its shape. The dress called the shots. Of course, her body shape lent itself to this display of talent. You couldn’t have put that dress on a curvy body and gotten the same results.

Can you imagine how fun it must be to have masters of design creating something for you to wear to a special event? Of course, the stakes are high. Here we are talking about best and worst afterall!

What dresses stood out for you — whether in a good way or a bad way?

    My favorite was Rachel Wood in that gorgeous black sweeping train dress. I loved her chic hair style as well.

      Now I want to go back and look at her outfit! Yes, getting the hair to work with the dress is another piece of the puzzle. Connie Britton’s hair was styled much like the skirt of her dress — flowing and wild. I kind of liked that!
