Daytime Emmys Recap: Best Dressed
You had to travel over the river (of HORRORS) and through the woods (of "SERIOUSLY, DID THAT JUST HAPPEN AND IF SO WHY?") to find it, but there was some good nestled in the 2010 Daytime Emmy Awards. Not good production values, or good hosting, or good recognition of daytime dramas, or a good red carpet pre-show, because none of those things existed last night. But good fashion did!
The Daytime Emmys gave us a few (literally, a few. See above, re: no red carpet pre-show) glimpses of pretty people looking gorgeous. Which, as we're sure you're all aware, is what we're looking for from our soap-related bashes. Below, our picks for the Serial Drama Best Dressed List for the 2010 Daytime Emmys.
Maura West easily could have looked like a bride in this gown, but the fit, the pop of color in her hair, and her hair and makeup ensured no bridal implications whatsoever. We don't know how a blond looks so good in white -- repeatedly! -- but we commend her. (And also want her to join one of our shows...)
FLAWLESS. As in, "SHE HAS NO FLAWS". And we can't even hate her because she seems so utterly sweet. So we'll settle for just gazing at her pretty and sighing. (Yes, the dress is a bit "dinner with Captain Steubing on the Love Boat," but in a GOOD way. ....Alright, it's possible we can't see past her gorgeousness.)
We're Julie Pinson fans from way back, so we're delighted that she hit it out of the park on the night she won her Emmy! The color is perfect for her, the dress is gorgeous and her hair and makeup are divine. And it doesn't look like she tried super hard -- she gives the impression that she could roll out of the house after 20 minutes of prep looking like this. Which, maybe she is just that awesome and does, and if so then that's yet another amazing thing that we hope Billy Warlock had some involvement with.
Another gorgeous color choice. It has a slight "Scarlett O'Hara takes a tapestry off of the wall and goes to impress Rhett at a toga party" vibe to it, but the overall look is lovely.
Maternity chic! The color is, once again, perfection.
The bodice looks like a figure skating costume, and the bottom is Swan Lake Barbie, but the overall look is rather gorg. Either that, or that show has made us completely redefine the term "best".
Would it be gross to say "Yowza"?
"Yabba dabba doo"?
La Lucci knows exactly what's expected of her on nights like this--pretty dress, glam accessories and an enormous smile. She looks fantastic.
If this isn't the quintessential soap star gown, we don't know what is.
Is it kind of trashy? Yes. But if we had Michelle Stafford's body, that's the kind of dress we'd wear at all times. Trips to the post office, running to the grocery store, whatever. "Yeah," we'd be saying. "We're hot as fire," which is exactly what Stafford is saying here.
Gold was a bit overdone at this year's show (oh, the irony of so much gold at such a sub-bronze event), but the fit on this dress is just ridiculous--it looks like it's painted on but without looking sleazy. She looks amazing.
Not "Best" as in "fashionable," best as in "Yes, that is exactly what Ronn Moss would wear. He is the best!"
