Emmy's 2012

Yesterday night I watched the Red Carpet and the live show of the Emmy's. This morning I was chatting about it with my friend Paola in the Netherlands, and I was relived by the fact that I was not the only one a bit disappointed by the fashion on the red carpet. Quite boring gowns. Predictable choices. What do you think? Were celebrities already looking ahead into next summer with all the summery colored gowns? Or a bit of a fall back, looking back to this past summer?
I could not see any sharp line between the 2 seasons frankly. And I really like to knnow your thoughts on this!

A part from my personal comments, I believe we can draw some trends out of the red carpet. Here a few that I believe are worth to be highlighted:

Yellow: I did not enjoy at all this trend. A way to summery for the start of the Fall season. Julianne Moore in Dior (maybe a bit inappropriate for the 90° in LA), Kaley Cuoco in Angel Sanchez, Claire Danes in Lanvin and Hannah Simone in Emilio Pucci Couture.,,20304925_20632577,00.html?stitched#21217447

Burgundy: Tina Fey's Vivianne Westwood gown was a bit daring, but still nothing overwhelming.  At least here we are peeping into one of the trends of the Fall season. Jena Malone in J. Mendel, Mayim Bialik in custom Pamella Rolland and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in custom Vera Wang.,,20304925_20632577,00.html?stitched#21217417
Pastel Blue and Acqua Green: Even though a bit too summery for my taste, I believe these 3 gowns were the most daring in the bunch. Zooey Deschanel in Reem Acra, Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vauthier and Julianne Hough in Georges Hobeika Couture.,,20304925_20632577,00.html?stitched#21217422

Sparkle: To me, this choice is a bit predictable for a red carpet, no? Jane Krakowski in KaufmanFranco gown, Sofia Vergara in Zuhair Murad, Lucy Liu in Versace and Kerry Washington in Vivienne Westwood.,,20304925_20632577,00.html?stitched#21217437

Orange: Tangerine in Fall? Again? End of Summer flavor? Or SS2013 anticipation? Lindsay Pulsipher, Padma Lakshmi and Ginnifer Goodwin, the latter two in Monique Lhuillier.,,20304925_20632577,00.html?stitched#21217443

Grey: and finally the trend I enjoyed the most. Even though a neutral, funny enough I believe it was the most interesting and less predictable. Sarah Hyland in Notte by Marchesa, Emily VanCamp in J. Mendel,  Morena Baccarin in Basil Soda and Kate Mara in Badgley Mischka.,,20304925_20632577,00.html?stitched#21217432

  1. Reading this post one week later but still, I wanted to give you my opinion :)
    Like you and our dear friend Paola I didn't find the red carpet for the Emmys to be very exciting. Grey and burgundy were actually nice colors for fall (I also spotted one green dress) but the dresses didn't really amaze in the end.

    Maybe it's the proof that TV stars don't live up to movie stars just quite yet?
