Emmy Fashion 2010

Cupcake Chowder presents:
2nd annual best-dressed at the Emmy's

Our best-dressed winner also won an Emmy for "Lead Actress". Congratulations Claire Danes! She looked golden and gorgeous in her Armani Prive crystal gown (which needed no jewelry). Her skin and make-up were fresh and flawless...I thought she totally nailed it tonight!

First runner-up
award belongs to Glee star Jayma Mays. I loved the striking navy color and seamless fit of her Burberry Prorsum strapless dress. The gold jewelry was a perfect accent, and I also liked the beautiful ruffles on the train (which gives the dress a nice, softening look). Perfection!
Second runner-up goes to reality star Kim Kardashian. I was pleasantly surprised to see her looking so chic and elegant in white Marchesa. My favorite part of the dress was the Egyptian-style neckline and chiffon train. Beautiful! I know many of you will disagree with my on this one, but I'm going to go out on a limb and give Emmy presenter Anna Paquin the Miss Congeniality Award. Unfortunately, this Alexander McQueen dress does not photograph well, but it looked awesome on the red carpet and Emmy stage. I love that Paquin consistently takes risks, and I think this dress was a lot of fun (it's also fairly modest too).I had a really hard time choosing my Honorable Mention this year. In the end I decided to change my original vote of Jane Lynch and go with Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev. I thought she looked stunning and timeless in a lace Zuhair Murad dress.
Who was your favorite red carpet diva?

I love Claire Danes dress!! She looks gorgeous! I looked through the pics and I think January Jones' dress was probably the worst for me followed up by Kris Kardashian. It was very unflattering on her. Yikes. I loved the opening number with the Glee cast. Hilarious!
