I know it's not the Oscars, but come on actors, it's still Hollywood and it's still a red carpet! This is an opportunity to get dressed to the nines, to wear something spectacular. I was truly hoping that somebody would be bold and step out of the box a little a la Cher/Bob Mackie circa 1986, but the carpet was a homogenized sea overloaded with Leiber, Leighton and Louboutin. Okay, but that's just the accessories, right? What about the dresses? Nice. That's all I can say. Nice. Nothing daring or spectacular. Nothing memorable. So, I'm not even going to bother with a best-dressed/worst-dressed list. Instead, I'll just touch on one of the trends that showed up on the red carpet -- red. The color is always classic so it's a safe bet when in doubt, but naysayers and annoying "fashion police" might argue that it's not a good idea to wear red on the red carpet, but I disagree (as I do with most of what they say).
Maybe I'm biased, but I think the best example of a red dress on a red carpet is jewelry designer Wendy Brandes wearing her custom piece (by STACY LOMMAN : NEW YORK of course!)
Here are some other lovey ladies wearing red to the 2012 Emmy's...
