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

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...)

Chrishell Stause

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.)

Julie Pinson

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.

Eden Riegel

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.

Bree Williamson

Maternity chic! The color is, once again, perfection.

Christel Khalil

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".

Eileen Davidson

Would it be gross to say "Yowza"?

"Yabba dabba doo"? 

"Mama like"?

Susan Lucci

La Lucci knows exactly what's expected of her on nights like this--pretty dress, glam accessories and an enormous smile.  She looks fantastic.

Nadia Bjorlin

If this isn't the quintessential soap star gown, we don't know what is. 

Michelle Stafford

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.

Lisa LoCicero

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.

Ronn Moss

Not "Best" as in "fashionable," best as in "Yes, that is exactly what Ronn Moss would wear. He is the best!"

Comments

I still cannot get over how fantastic Eileen Davidson looks. Yowza is way right!! Lisa LoC looks mighty awesome too. I need to go now--to the gym!

I liked Sharon Case's as well...it was a little glitzy but she looked nice in it. And when I saw Michelle Stafford's dress that was my exact reaction..."wow..that's...a lil slutty but damn if I looked like her..."
Lisa LoC looks lovely too.

Wait so Michelle Stafford gets a pass for that? No, cannot endorse that one.

Nice! However, this and the "Worst Dressed" list are inspiring me to redouble my sunscreen, especially on my chest!

West quite good,Davidson quite good (she aged very well by the way),Pinson ok (the hair not so much),Lucci euh..just ok, Williamson quite good (but the hair too blond..i know i know she is not alone..)and Stafford : seyxey..
The others..not good IMO
Ron Moss ?! It is a joke isn't it ? St John was sexy, like some others but not Moss guys...lol

At first, I didn't know how to feel about Michelle Stafford's dress, but given the venue, I have to say it worked for me. She looked very sexy and took a risk....a good one. I feel the same way, ladies, if my body looked like that, I'd probably dress like that everywhere. Ha!

Not that I thought her dress was cute, but Julie Berman looked so much better this year than last year that I had to give her a mention. Plus, her dress had purple in it and purple is awesome!

Bree looked goregeous and Christel's dress worked. I'm not really a fan of feathers but she looked pretty, not to mention the fact that she recently had a baby.

Very nice list. I wonder how Laura Wright looked. I haven't found anything yet.

Chrishell's dress did NOT work. All I kept thinking was, "You're in Vegas, but no need for YOU to LOOK trashy." The top didn't even fit her right and the hair was far too big. It overwhelmed her.

Susan Lucci and Lisa LoCicero looked fantastic - very Hollywood glam, which this awards show needs if it's going to be worth watching, covering or even mentioning in the future. Bree Williamson looked cute, though I'm not sold on that color for her. Maura West looked nice, but I think my mom wore that same dress with a jacket over it as Mother of Bride... and I don't mean that to be bitchy. Mom and Maura both looked great! But Emmy glam? Not so much.

Everyone else - meh.

Oh i didn't see Ari Zucker dress : now i saw it and it is rather classy, i like it. With her body height it fit well, however the back is not good but the front view is good.
So Ari didn't win the emmy but she was well-dressed, so much better than last year where her dress, hair were awful.

My gurl Michelle Stafford was seriously working that dress. You go, gurl!

And oh how you make me laugh, Ronn Moss...

All I can say is Beth Chamberlin look simply gorgeous.

Sorry, can't back Eileen Davidson...looks like "The Mummy Takes Las Vegas."

Lisa LoCicero?? I knew the girl had a rockin' bid, but that is one lean piece of Italian spaghetti. NO WAY does anything that even remotely resembles pasta make it to THOSE lips!

I wholly support the cause, but I had to laugh at the "Feed the Children" sign behind her. Heh.

That should have been "rockin BOD." Yeesh.

I give extra points to Maura West for wearing a J Crew dress because she doesn't wear a dress she can't afford quoth her. =) She looked gorgeous! And her daughter looked adorable.

Ronn Moss deserves his own category...as his awesome time-warped self defies all categorizations!

If by "best" you mean looking better than a ripe, Vegas hooker then yes, these are among the best. But the fashion for the evening was completely UNDERWHELMING. Hair and accessories were especially bad.

Christel Khalil's dress looks like a cheap wedding gown. Also, her hair and makeup leave a lot to be desired - she looks like she just woke up.

Michelle Stafford's dress might not be the classiest little number, but she can pull it off because a)it's Vegas, and b)she has an amazing body. I'm envious.

Maura West DOES look like a bride.

My pick for best dressed is Susan Lucci. I normally don't care for what she's wearing, but her dress was beautiful, classy, and perfect.

I thought you'd pulled some old picture of Ron Moss out, because the last time I was trapped at my mother's house and forced to watch B&B, he'd FINALLY let his hair go gray. Soooo...now we're supposed to ignore his shoe-black hair and eyebrows?

And a ready-made bowtie? Really? Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, hell, Humphrey Bogart, are spinning in their collective graves.

Thank goodness for this blog. It's the only place where I have been able to go to hear good things about Michelle Stafford's dress. I thought she looked amazing, and if I had the body she did, I'd wear something like that all the time. And in terms of little balck dresses, I'll take hers over Vanessa Marcil's boring ensemble any day.

Christel Khalil needs to trim her hair! Are you serious? Best dressed?

Michelle Stafford's hair and makeup are gorgeous! Too bad about the dress...

I thought Christel Khalil looked very beautiful for someone that just had a baby. So did Maura West,Nadia Bjorlin and Bree Williamson.

I don't think I like Eden's belt.

I think Maura West would make a fab Carly on GH. I've never warmed up to LW in the role (not that Carly has much to warm up to!)

Maura looked gorgeous. Michelle Stafford? No, just...no. & I'm not a big fan of feathers from the knee down. Surprised Kelly Monaco didn't make the list, I thought she looked quite soft & lovely.
