Television’s biggest award ceremony made for a stylish red carpet event last night. To my surprise, most of the dresses were long and colourful. From fuchsia to watermelon, aqua to teal, and crimson to eggplant, neutrals were not the order of the evening.

Yet my favourite looks were neutrally toned. These were my top 4:

  • Portia De Rossi glistened in a long midnight blue strapless number that was “held up” at the neck (halter style) by a bejeweled snake. The gown was amazing and unique and my absolute best.
  • Kyra Sedgwick wore a long black work of art that looked sculptured both from the front and from the back. The gothic and dramatic appeal of this dress might have been an over the top choice for the Emmy’s, but I loved it all the same.
  • Eva Longoria was a perfect little princess in her sparkly short, gold cut-away sheath. Sassy, smart and immaculate as only ultra petite Eva Longoria could pull off.
  • Ali Larter wore a long red voluminous strapless gown and makes my list not because I thought the dress was particularly fabulous, but because it looked so comfortable.

If you managed to catch a glimpse of the show, I’d love to hear about your favourites.
