I was a bit underwhelmed and unimpressed by the looks at yesterday’s Emmy Awards show, which is why it’s taken me all day to muster the energy to write about it. (Must I? Sigh. Okay.) What I did like were the soft, artfully messy, feminine updos that abounded; what I don’t like is the “red lipstick” trend, which feels too harsh and forced.
Debra Messing‘s hair looked pretty and modern, not to mention amazingly healthy and shiny (it’s all about the shine, people!)
Sandra Oh‘s hair could have benefitted from a little anti-frizz serum, but worked from far away, and her makeup is lovely
Christina Applegate shines in every way; with her bold makeup and pulled back hair, she could be a classic Hitchcock heroine à la Grace Kelly
Honestly, while I love her, America Ferrera‘s hair confused me last night; I assume there was some sort of backstory (the power in the hotel room went out! She was running late and only had half an hour to get ready!) but I am not on board with the frizzy, unevenly curled look
Heidi Klum had countless costume changes (and seemed a bit uncomfortable hosting, no?), but this is one of the my favorite looks of the night; she is a true genetic freak and I mean that in the best possible way! Meanwhile, Marcia Cross looks
waxen perfect, as always
Lauren Conrad keeps trying to make braids happen. It does actually look cute on her…but would look indescribably silly on me
