WEIRD EMMY OUTFITS ...

Dear readers, back again and thank you everyone for all the comments to my last post - Your Lola Lifeline - and all your requests for advice which I’m already attending to and will pass to my PA for typing. But heaven knows when she’ll get around to it (you’d think it’d be easier to get good staff in a recession, wouldn’t you?). Oh, I could on at length about this so, take a break, dear readers, put on the kettle, talk among yourselves for a few minutes and I’ll be right back … It’s going to be a minute or two before I’m good to go again!

Now, where was I? Oh, yes, participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘W’ IS FOR *W*EIRD (AND SOME *W*ONDERFUL) … 2011 EMMY OUTFITS!
First of all, some of the *W*onderful ones:
1. Lea Michele (above)
2. Zooey Deschanel (below)
3. Michelle Dochery

4. Christina Hendricks -Mad Men
5. Minka Kelly 6. Joanne Froggat






7. Julie Bowen 8. Elizabeth McGovern And now, some of the *W*eird ones:
9. Elisabeth Moss (a tad overall pallid in this outfit?) 10. Gwyneth Paltrow (is the sari the new LBD?)


11. Julianne Margulies – The Good Wife (but that bodice feature!)




12. Phoebe Price (channelling Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid?)
13. Padma Lakshmi (those streaks!) And finally a pic of my PA in one of her gowns: Oops! Sorry! Wrong pic, similar images! No offence, Miss Piggy!
WHICH OUTFITS DO YOU FIND THE WEIRDEST/ LEAST WEIRD?
Do tell me! And do check out other posts @ Sue loves Cherries, Work of the Poet and Jenny Matlock!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers who have visited or commented. And to new followers too. Have a great weekend!
Enjoy!
XOXO LOLA:)

I like te sari on Gwyneth . Not weird in my opinion. Nice post. I love most of the dresses.

Heavenly Housewife said...

Oh Lola, you are funny :)
I find Gweneth's dress particularly odd. She is so beautiful and usually so stylish, but sometimes she really gets it wrong.
*kisses* HH

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

I actually like the top one! Not that I could or would wear it, but it looks good on her...

Jo said...

Pretty is as pretty does,that's and old sayin'..I don't know how some of them make thier decision.I know it must be difficult,and probable when they look back on it,they say."why did I choose that"....
Enjoyed!

I agree with you on these dresses, I thought the Emmys was rather boring. I don't want to spend any more for my ridiculously overpriced cable bill so I don't get HBO, so I hadn't a clue about a lot of the shows! xo

Hi Hon,
Thanks for stoping by and it is good to be back.
I think the last two ladies on the bottom are wearing the worst. The last one needs to go home and take a shower.She looks plum nasty.She's all greasy and shiny.I don't like that.
You know me Lola...I Calls them as I sees Them.
Bye Dear,
Marie Antionette

Just what I would wear as I head out to the garden with hoe in hand...must stop shopping at Land's End and LL Bean...my wardrobe needs sprucing up!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I loved all the jewel colored dress ladies wore this year.

Karen S. said...

All I can say is way way to much money goes out for those outfits that mostly are often not so pretty!

Jann Olson said...

I missed it so not sure, darn. I always love to see the dresses. It never seems to amaze me. Some are so gorgeous, other-out there. Hopped over for a visit from Alpha Thurs. Fun post.

Stacia said...

Loved Zooey Deschanel's. It's always the simple, classic ones that draw me in.

Pondside said...

Some of them are just strange!....but it's hard to put anything on Gwenyth that would look bad.

bichonpawz said...

I must agree with HH on Gwyneth! And Julianne Margulies...WHAT was she thinking? The top of her dress was soooooo weird!!! I didn't particularly like the Emmy's. I just wasn't that impressed. I do love Modern Family though...that show is hilarious!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug, and the mama

Tracey said...

Oh.. the emmy's...Julianne's dress was the wierdest of them all!!! Was that a mummy dress???? You made me laugh as always..love it!! have a great day!!

Keri said...

I like Phoebe Price's dress. She just over did it in the accessory department!

JennieB said...

Oh my goodness, why is Padma so shiny?!!

EG Wow said...

Ha! I must say they are all so different from anything I wear. :)

Ames said...

Well #13 looks like she came straight from the swifter commercial. Is she dirt, mud, or residue??~

Z said...

I thought that Gwyneth would have been better to go closer to the sari, if that's the effect she wanted, by replicating the pallu draped over the shoulder too. As it is, midriff displayed at a formal event is tacky.

Nothing can equal Padma's mud-wrestle look, just horrible.

I thought that Zooey Deschanel looked enchanting, and about 17 years old - in a good way.

Morning said...

fun collection of interesting shots.

fancy fashion.

Judie said...

I'm with Riet! I like the sari look the best of all. Of course, one must have the figure to go with the look!!!

Jenny said...

You know what? If I looked like any of those women I'd pretty much wear anything. And be proud of it!

I always have to laugh that their 'stylists' even let them attend wearing some of those things!

Thanks for a wonderful link.

I am always intriqued by what you come up with!

A+

LV said...

Some of these are very pretty gowns. Then again, some are not worth what they pay for them.

chubskulit said...

I like Joanne Frogat's dress.

I actually like Gwyneth Paltrow's dress, especially since she can pull it off with her body :) But then again, it is a bit weird for an award show!
