2010 Emmy Awards Frock Round-Up

Pretty much every red carpet award event is primarily about the frocks. The awards themselves come a distant second (or perhaps fourth, after shoes second, and then hairstyles). Or is that awfully shallow? Oh who cares - the 2010 Emmy's were a frock extravaganza of the highest order! And I think Mad Men and Modern Family might have won some statues. Or something. Anyway:

Phwoar! Susan Sarandon is, what, 64? The lovely lass next to her is her daughter Eva - but she obv looks less than pleased about being shown up by her smokin' hot mother, looking splendid in Donna Karan.

Toni Collette in Valentino looks magical in her floating printed skirt. Or, it could look like she's waded through mud to get there. But I prefer the former.

Apparently Lo Bosworth went for a 60's Mad Men style makeover for the occassion. Unfortunately she also looks a bit like a secretary, with porn star shoes.

I always assume Anna Paquin is still 11. And I still think it, cos she looks a little...lost...amongst McQueen's glam warrior frock. Maybe it's just this pic, but you need a whole lotta attitude - and different shoes - to pull this one off.

Sofia Vergara from Modern Family would be hard-pressed to look bad in anything, but the first two words that popped into my head when I saw this were "tiger" and then "lemon". Um?

This is Claire Danes. Love the dress, she looks radiant - but also alot older than the last time I remember noticing her. Which was in that movie she was on with Leo di Caprio. When they played star crossed teenagers. Which was nearly 15 years ago. Bloody hell.

Here's Jewel, looking a bit like a doily. Or a slimline toilet dolly. Nice clutch though.

Sue Sylvester looks far better when she's not in an adidas tracksuit. I mean, Jane Lynch, looks far better in an eggplant Ali Rahimi gown then she does in an adidas tracksuit.

What's the first thing you notice in this pic? Christina Hendrick's amazing Zac Posen gown? Thought not.

Eva Longoria Parker looks amazing in Robert Rodriguez. But she kinda always looks like this. Almost too perfect, all the time. Perhaps she's more of a Stepford Wife and not a Desperate Housewife. Creepy.

Gone With the Wind is my favourite ever movie. However as far as I know, southern belle fashions are yet to make a fully-fledged comeback. Such a shame, says Glee's Dianna Argon.

Not sure about Kim Kardashian's hair, but her Marchesa gown is stunning!

Who was your fave?
