Shop Cops - The 2006 Emmy Edition.

Sat, 2006-09-02 20:00

The major looks of the evening? Cleavage, purple, lace and huge cocktail rings. If I hear once more about Tyra Banks wearing a stunning black lace Georges Chakra gown (valued at $50,000 and complemented by $3.5 million in Chopard jewelry), I may vomit.

We can’t show everybody so here are some honorable mentions. Runners up for best dressed include; Debra Messing in an Alberta Ferretti white tiered tulle gown, Portia de Rossi in grey Zac Posen, Calista Flockhart in Derek Lam, Katherine Heigl in Escada, and Megan Mullally in Badgley Mischka.

There were some great standouts as both best and worst. Let’s take a look.

Best – Julia Louise Dreyfus looked amazing in her sleek white and black Narciso Rodriguez gown. This was a pleasant surprise. Normally she is on the other list. Kudos.
Worst – Ellen Pompeo I loved the color of her Dior corset gown, but who wears velvet in the summer? Especially when it’s 110 degree outside? “Let’s just say I’m nice and snuggly and warm,â€? she joked. Her hair was too severe and I can’t believe I am going to say this, the dress actually made her look…large.
Best – Evangeline Lily The Lost star was stunning on the red carpet in an aubergine Versace strapless gown and Neil Lane diamonds…
Worst – Cheryl Hines The Curb Your Enthusiasm actress looked stiff and wrapped like a present in her taffeta gown with an over-the-top see-through back. The flesh-tone back netting reminded me of a figure skating outfit.
Best – Sandra Oh Even though some fashion critics have trashed her for wearing too many necklaces, I thought she looked amazing. Have any of these critics even looked at a fall fashion magazine? Piling on the Mr. T gold bling is da thing. Oh, and her lilac Vera Wang gown was spectacular.
Worst – Paula Abdul If there is a red carpet event and Ms. Abdul attends, she is sure to be on the worst-dressed list. She did not fail us this time. She looked gift wrapped in an ill-fitting watercolor floral gown. The pears around her neck and the ribbon in her updo were the icing on the cake.
Best – Mariska Hargitay This brand new mother had an excuse for ample cleavage and she was covered up. She looked phenomenal in a Carolina Herrara gown with cascading flowers.
Worst – Vanessa Minnillo Nick Lachey’s girl-du-jour obviously thought she was going to a beauty pageant. The TRL host flopped in her too-tight and too-sequined aqua cocktail dress. She may have Jessica’s man, but it’s now time for her stylist too.
