Daytime Emmys Recap: Worst Dressed

Nearly every aspect of the 2010 Daytime Emmy Awards can be described with the word "Worst." And "horrible." And "Ohmigod, seriously, why is this happening?!" Some of the fashion choices were no exception and we found ourselves briefly grateful that there was no red carpet show, because our exposure to some of these ensembles was therefore limited.  Blinding could have resulted upon more extensive viewing!

(Although, if we had been blinded, we wouldn't have had to sit through the rest of the ceremony, so now we're back to being annoyed at the lack of the pre-show.)

The Emmys featured looks that ranged from the uninspired (a cheap looking prom dress? How chic!) to the ill-fitting to the downright hideola. Below, our picks for Worst Dressed of the 2010 Daytime Emmy Awards.

Melissa Archer

Melissa Archer is a repeat offender when it comes to looking horrendous at the Daytime Emmys. Girl, just because eighteen people watch this broadcast doesn't mean that you can completely disregard things like "taste" and "fit" and have a dress custom designed by Fredericks of Hollywood. Hideous.

Rebecca Budig

It makes us sad to disagree with one of our favorite pocket-sized actresses, but between the eighteen different textures on the dress and the very busy shoes, there is just way too much going on here. And none of it is helped by the helmet hair.

Sharon Case

Speaking of hair that should never exist...

Jeanne Cooper

Jeanne Cooper has earned the right to wear a flowing caftan to the Emmys if she damn well pleases. We just wish she had chosen a caftan that was a little less Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat and a little more "able to look at directly without scorching our eyes".

Bobbie Eakes

BEVERLY HILLS - JUN 24: Bobbie Eakes arrives at the TV Academy

Bobbie Eakes was rhinestones on parade at the Emmys (top photo), and it looked like a unconventional materials challenge on Project Runway. But it was a hundred steps up from the getup she wore at the cocktail reception for the Emmy nominees (bottom photo). That was a bandage dress that mated with ten tons of illusion netting and the resultant offspring was heinous.

Elizabeth Hendrickson

The color is bland, the fabric is cheap-looking, and the fit is off, but the SHINE, people! Why is her face so shiny? Does she not know that Target carries the e.l.f. line of cosmetics and that their blotting paper is only a dollar? Because IT IS, LIZ. A DOLLAR!

Kimberly Matula

Not even thin, adorable, blonde girls can pull off prom dresses from Mandee.

Marie Osmond

She looks like her own drag impersonator.

Rachael Ray

Rachael Ray has not received many of the most basic fashion messages, including 1) if you are pear-shaped, you don't emphasize your hips (say, with a giant gathered bow!), 2) short girls shouldn't wear shoes with ankle straps (especially ones that don't, you know, match your dress), and 3) sometimes stylists are just fucking with you!  Don't listen, Rachael!  Yours has been steering you wrong for years.  Let's do a girls' shopping trip in New York.  We can help with the clothes thing, and you can tell us what Susan Lucci is really like backstage.

Denise Vasi

Fashion Rule #1: If your dress is virtually indistinguishable from the couch in the condo of an elderly woman in Boca, you shouldn't wear it.
Fashion Rule #2: There is no need for you to wear more makeup than Marie Osmond's drag impersonator.

Tonya Lee Williams

We were all set to snark on her for wearing an outfit that would have been fashionable when Eisenhower was in office, but then the show went and had Chubby Checker, and the Spinners, so she obviously knew that the theme of the night was "Things that have not been popular in decades" and chose her outfit appropriately.

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood

We're actually offended.

Comments

omg, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood looked absolutely ghastly. And she's a good looking girl! What's up with that white make-up? TERRIBLE. SIGH.

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood was in Vegas filming 'Showgirls 2'. She looks like Nomi Malone!

As a well-endowed woman myself, I've got no problem with MA's propensity for showing off the tatas. They look good. It's just the faux-snakeskin/alligator/polyester dress holding them up that completely offends my eyes.

I know Melissa Archer is a talented actress and all...but all I'm thinking right now is "Damn...look what your momma gave you Tits McGee!"

That picture came dangerously close to making this site NSFW!

How could you not include Crystal Chappel's absolutely horrible dress? Not only did it look like she grabbed it off the kitchen table, it didn't even come close to actually fitting her.

Melissa Archer a stylist please to help you choose dress flatering to your assets without looking like a porn star.

Not cute atall

Someone please tell Melissa Archer that we all know she has gorgeous boobs and she doesn't have to shove them down our throats. Geez. There are about a million ways to show that chest off - why did she have to go with tacky?

ITA with those who had an issue with MA's dress and her leading ladies being front and center. Her dress left nothing to the imagination.

And everything about Jacqueline McInnes Woods appearance was wrong, from her hair being slicked back to the makeup to the ugly dress.

I completely agree about Elizabeth Hendrickson being on the worst dress list. I thought her dress looked very bland and it looked cheap. Then again I didn't care too much for her outfit from last years Emmy Awards.

Holy boobage Melissa Archer!!!

My complaint with Melissa Archer's dress wasn't that it was revealing. I've seen others that were equally so in the past. I think it should have either been longer or shorter and the cut of skirt should have been more fitted. She does have an awesome body. I'm so jealous.

Melissa Archer the cut of the dress is just too much, doesn't fit and makes her look hookerish, she needs to know how to show off her breast size the right way beside the entire thing is just down right fugly.

Rebecca - I have no idea what was going through her head when she said yes to that thing.

Kimberly Matula - that dress is just ugly and awkward

Jacqueline Macinnes Wood - all wrong, just all wrong from the head to the toe.

MA rack is amazing. I'm a bit jealousy actually, but the dress doesn't do her justice. You want to look sexy not sleazy the red carpet.

I didn't think Rebecca Budig looked bad, but I don't think she was appropriate for the Daytime Emmy's.

I adore KMc but I didn't like her look.
Her dress didn't flatter, her accessories were a bit off and while I liked her hair, I thought it overpowered everything else. It's a shame because she is a very pretty.

In general, the daytime actors really need stylist for this big event. Many of them are too old for their looks or if it was age appropriate, it was just scary.

I have find out college students linked different styles a variety of internet site before you,to dropping was gday to provide for which have the majority of blograisers word count peruse like being worthless tabs,simply joining your downline have always been always, i comparable to learn your individual search engines site,and thus gano coffee feel completely happy in addition can potentially find out an endeavor fresh,and therefore ganoderma regard your fun sites while

What, you all get random spam here now, too? Is no site sacred?!

I agree that Natalie looks like a porn star in one of the ugliest dresses I've ever seen!!! Why didn't she just come topless altogether - at least I wouldn't have to look at the rest of that hideous dress...

And at least Greenme's AWFUL wardrobe on AMC is starting to make some sense - plenty have been blaming it on the wardrobe dept - but I'm pretty sure RB has just been picking it out herself....LOL!

I too didn't see anything wrong with KM - she looks pretty and I actually like the dress.

Agree that Sharon Case's dress wasn't the best, but far from the worst...

And whoever that bottom actress is, WHY is she wearing a banana skin?

I love the outfit of Kimberly Matula. She is so beautiful
