Emmy Fashion - Blue, Indigo, and Violet

Let's dive into the end the spectrum.  Here we go!


Mayim Bialik
Nominee, Mayim Bialik, from The Big Bang Theory (love her character!) opted for a very matronly Oliver Tolentino gown. There are some good things going on here. The color is beautiful, and I don't mind the bodice and lace sleeves either. The skirt is just too voluminous though. It's just too much dress. Her hair, make-up, and accessories are lovely though.


Keke Palmer
Keke Palmer from Masters of Sex wore a bold blue Rubin Singer gown. I liked this dress a lot. The fabric looks gorgeous, and the mermaid silhouette is dramatic. The plunging V neckline makes it a real show stopper. Well done!


Viola Davis
The lovely Viola Davis wore an Escada column dress with embellished bust and sleeves. She looks fantastic. Another bold blue color, and the embellishments take it from boring to beautiful. Her hair and make-up perfectly compliment the look. Great job!


Rose Leslie
Rose Leslie from Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey wore J. Mendel. The dress is pretty, but doesn't really flatter her figure. I think it would be better suited to someone a little bustier. She looked okay, but not great.

Edie Falco
Edie Falco, also donned Escada for the occasion. I was under impressed.  As a nominee, it was a little boring. I feel like I've seen this dress everywhere - aka it's ordinary. Her hair and make-up look very everyday as well. I thought the whole thing was just "meh."


Melissa Rauch
Melissa Rauch from The Big Bang Theory knocked it out of the park with this Pamella Roland stunner of a gown. I would wear this gown in a heartbeat. I love the simple lines and small train. The black belt and clutch accent it well, and her hair and jewelry are perfect. Beautiful job!!


Natasha Lyonne
I've been a fan of Natasha Lyonne for years, so it was nice to see the Orange is the New Black star bring her quirky style to the red carpet in this tea-length Opening Ceremony dress. I didn't love the dress. I found the little flounce at the bottom distracting, but it still seems very "Natasha". I would have loved to see her wild mane in a cool up-do as well.

Christine Baranski
The Good Wife nominee, Christine Baranski, looked both sophisticated and statuesque in this gorgeous navy blue column gown (couldn't find the designer). It fits her perfect, is age appropriate, and sexy in a womanly sort of way. Her hair and make-up compliment the look perfect. Wonderful job!! 

Halle Berry
Halle Berry stepped out in this lavendar J. Mendel grecian gown. It's very pretty, but there's nothing really spectacular about her look at all. The color is not great on her, and I feel like she has not changed her look since...well, ever. There's never any surprise with Halle anymore. She looked just okay.

AND FINALLY...

Julia Roberts
Surprisingly, nominee Julia Roberts, was both my favorite blue dress and my overall favorite look of the night. I loved the short, beaded Elie Saab dress so much. Maybe because this is a dress that us in the real world could actually wear. I haven't worn a gown since my wedding, but you never know when you'll need a great cocktail dress. The beading, plunging neckline, and tiered skirt help up the fanciness factor. Her legs look a mile long, and the shoes are super cute too. Her fresh faced make-up and pretty blonde waves complete the look. She looks very much the movie star mingling with those common TV folks. I loved it!!!
