Emmys Red Carpet: Who was best dressed?

September 22, 2008

heidiklum.jpgtinafey.jpgBraving blistering afternoon heat and more than a little sweat, the world’s top television stars rolled onto the red carpet at the Emmy Awards in downtown Los Angeles in all their finery.

Once the arrivals wrapped up and the show got started, it was left to us onlookers to decide who looked great and who, well, didn’t.

Supermodel and “Project Runway” host Heidi Klum was no doubt the flashiest star on the carpet in a crystal-studded Armani gown with massive butterfly-shaped earrings.

Yellow was a popular color, donned by both Mariska Hargitay of “Law and Order: SVU” and Teri Hatcher of “Desperate Housewives.”

But once all the stars had strutted their stuff, who looked the absolute best? Or worst, for that matter?

30rock.jpg“30 Rock” actor Judah Friedlander thought he deserved the “best dressed” award, but we’re guessing people may have something to say about that. Sorry, Judah.


By far the best dressed was the glamorous, stunning…Mariska Hargitay! That yellow was her color for sure! Her hair and make-up was also amazing!
I must say though, alot of the women looked fantastic this year, I am impressed!

Mariska Hargitay simply stunning. Moreover Mariska is so beautiful and everything in it any color you fall well. But beyond the dress her hair and accessories were perfect.


As much as I LOVE Mariska Hargitay, this yellow dress was HIDEOUS on her– it would have been great in ANY other color– but yellow’s not for her– as far as I’m concerned the “Best-Dressed” award went to Kate Walsh from “Private Practice”, closely followed by Tina Fey and Brooke Shields– they were PERFECTION!!

Marishka hargitay looked AMAZING in that dress.
her skin and hair color were complemented by that amazing yellow dress
not anyone would look good in that color but she pulled it off.
her nails. shoes and Jewelry completed her stunning look.
