Daytime Emmys Recap: Best Dressed
You are all probably observant enough to learn a few things about us over the years, dear readers. We're both bitter, for example. We have foul mouths. And we also have a deep and abiding love for things that are pretty.
The Daytime Emmys, for all of its faults, did give us a whole lot of pretty last night. Below, the Serial Drama Best Dressed List for the 2009 Daytime Emmys.
Do you know how strange it feels to be complimentary of a Tyra Banks outfit, let alone put her at the very top of our Best Dressed list? It feels VERY FOREIGN, let's just say that. Just a short year ago, we deemed her "just the worst" and she was the overwhelming pick for worst dressed. So to see her looking so chic and gorgeous is unsettling, to say the least, but we have to give it to her: she looks spectacular. (Fortunately, later in the evening Emmy voters once again encouraged Tyra's delusion that she is both informative and the next Oprah by giving her another damn award, so overall we had a night of love-hate balance with Ty-Ty.)
Mallory: Maternity adorability!
Becca: She looks adorable, but like she's due yesterday, and possibly with a human/giant hybrid. I worry about her center of gravity. And OMG, the poor thing in that heat! Let's give her an award just for showing up, let alone looking so cute.
She looks cute and comfortable, and the hair and makeup are impeccable.
Gorgeous! She looked like a million bucks from head to toe, and the contrasting earrings were an especially fabulous touch.
She should wear that color at all possible times. It's perfect for her! And even her hair looked cute. (Which is, you know, not the norm.)
Her hair and makeup look divine, and she pulls off this tricky style like whoa. She manages to look beautiful and at ease in what would look like a costume on many people. Also: shoes = want.
Another perfect color choice. We're not huge fans of the asymmetrical sleeves look, but if we had arms like hers we would probably insist that at least one was fully exposed to the world at all times. (She also endeared herself to us with how excited she was for Peter Reckell's nomination in her red carpet interview. 80s supercouples are the cutest evah!)
How does one manage to look so hot in a white tank dress? And her makeup demonstrates yet again that GH ruins everything it touches. They put her cosmetics on a with a trowel and spray gun! (It is also worth noting, in one of those "most improved" moments, that Tony Geary is not wearing anything oddly colored or shiny.)
We're torn on Kirsten Storms. On one hand, she looks adorably modern and the hair is fun. On the other hand, it's uncannily close to what Kim Zimmer wore (this has never in history been a good thing) and the white looks kind of like a first grade craft project.
(There is no such question about Julie Marie Berman. Her hair and makeup are a national tragedy. And the dress would have been better suited to a ceremony in the winter. But mostly it's the hair and lipstick. Eegads. We almost feel sorry for her that she won and therefore that look is going to forever be preserved as a highlight of her career.)
So, what did you think? Who rocked the admittedly small and not that competitive Daytime Emmys fashion world the most?
