The Emmy's Fashion Hits and Misses

The Emmy's are not only the best award show for our favorite television stars and programs. It is also one of the best nights for Hollywood Fashion! The red carpet pre-show is seriously one of my favorite things to watch!  Reds were seen the most on the red carpet this year.

Here are some of our favorites looks of the night and fashion bombs as well.

Our Favorites

Kate Winslet, She was one of the red beauties and she looked stunning in this dress.

Sofia Vergara, the Modern Family actress looked gorgeous  from head to toe.

Julie Bowen from Modern Family as well looked great! Loved it!

 Christina Hendricks from Mad Men, I really liked this. She didn't have her girls out as much as she sometimes does. Loved the dress color with her hair too.

Misses of the Night

Gwyneth Paltrow, She usually looks fabulous but I am not a fan of this dress and the whole bare mid-riff section.

Heidi Klum, She may produce and judge Project Runway but her dress was a miss this year.

Jayma Mays from Glee, Not a fan of this ballerina-ish/cake-topper look.

Julianna Margulies, So glad this Good Wife won the Emmy but I wasn't a fan of this boxy top of her dress.

Who were your Emmy favorites and faux-pas' this year?

2011 Emmy's, Our Favorite Moments

The 2011 Emmy's were last night. The best night for all our favorite television shows, actors and actresses.

Here are our top 5 favorite moments of last night!

5- The queens of comedy in a beauty pageant.

For the best actress in a comedy category, the actresses one by one joined each other on the stage, as their name was called. They were holding hands as if in a beauty pageant before the winner was announced. And the hilarious hometown girl, Melissa McCarthy (from Bridesmaids) won for Mike and Molly. Love all these funny ladies!

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series nominees Tina Fey, Martha Plimpton, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Poehler, Edie Falco, Laura Linney

4- Mark Walberg

I had to throw my boy in here. He looked good last night! He also received a couple shout outs, from Boardwalk Empire's Martin Scorcese and as the producer of anything HBO (He's the producer of both hits Entourage and Boardwalk Empire).

3- Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon fight. I love anything my boy Jimmy Fallon does. The two Jimmy's were hilariously picking a fight and then rolling around on the floor before presenting their award. I just wish their mikes were working a little better to hear what all went down.

Boys will be boys: Presenters Jimmy Kimmel (L) and Jimmy Fallon fight over an acceptance speech in Fallon's pocket

2- Jersey Shore Skit, where Jane Lynch got all Jersey-ed up as Donatella the creator of anything Jersey on Television: Jersey Shore, Real Housewives of New Jersey. She was hilariously dipping her make-up brush in a bag of Cheetos before applying to get her Jersey glow!

1- Lonely Island Performance

In case you don't know who The Lonely Island is, its a musical trio made up of SNL digital-short writers, Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Toccone. They had a star-studded performance featuring Akon, Michael Bolton, John Stamos, Maya Rudolph and Ed Helms.
