This year was chock-full of stunning red carpet looks. With celebrities dressed to impress at the Golden Globes, Oscars, Cannes, Emmys, and more, there were so many outfits to choose from. From Jennifer Aniston to Scarlett Johansson, we've rounded up our favorite show-stopping looks from 2010 — watch to see 2010's best dressed in review!
For a modern take on the classic bob as seen on Christina Hendricks at the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards, we went to celebrity hairstylist Philip Carreon who created the look for the Mad Men star. Watch our video for his expert tips on how to create this curly bob hairstyle that’s more chic than shriek.
>> The Emmys Awards, which happened this past Sunday, are "the first awards show after the summer blackout," as one publicist points out, "[so] it's a good opportunity for designers." And yet, Cathy Horyn notes, the recent show "was not a risk-taking red carpet or a particularly fashionable one." (See this year's red carpet looks here.) She continued: "Giorgio Armani and Oscar de la Renta were among the big names represented on the Emmys red carpet tonight, but where were Valentino, Dior and Chanel, to name three labels that actresses typically blurt out?"
WWD executive editor Bridget Foley added: "Most of the women given airtime looked — fill in your adjective: lovely, pretty, accessible. There was so much mass appeal in play that the event presented no more glamorously than your last black-tie wedding. Which is to say the women were attractive — good bodies in nice dresses, quietly festive hair and makeup — but nothing special. Surely anyone who longs for a little fantasy with her celebrity dress-up viewing went to bed unsatisfied, at least in the fashion sense."
Celebrities stepped out in gorgeous gowns for the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards, and blue was definitely the color of choice this year! January Jones, Lea Michele, Jayma Mays, and Julie Bowen, to name a few, all opted for different shades of this hue. January went bold in bright blue, while Glee costars Lea and Jayma wore shades of rich navy.
Jennifer Carpenter, Claire Danes, Heather Morris, Connie Britton and Wanda Sykes sparkled in their red carpet gowns at the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards. From Jennifer Carpenter in Oday Shakar and Claire Danes in Armani Privé to Heather Morris in Ina Soltani, Connie Britton in Burberry and Wanda Sykes in Zuhair Murad, there was no shortage of glitz and glamour at this year’s award show.
The Emmy Awards aren't until next Sunday, Aug. 29, but whetting our palate for the big show was last night's Creative Arts Emmys, lovingly called the "Schmemmys" by one of my favorite funny gals, Kathy Griffin.
These awards are passed out for achievements in categories like cinematography, editing, sound, mixing, and the like (you know, geeky stuff), and a few of my favorites took home top honors during the broadcast. From Star Wars, to Jimmy Fallon, to a former Dr. Horrible, to a YouTube sensation, check out all the geeky winners of the Creative Arts Emmys below!
- Best short form picture editing — Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
- Best Short Form Animated Program — Robot Chicken
- Best Voiceover Performance —Anne Hathaway, The Simpsons
See the rest of the geekified winners after the break.
