    Picking these ladies must have been hard, huh?? :)
    Thanks again for such an amazing coverage, FC!! I imagine you must be tired as ever, but I hope it has also been fun!!

    • Fashion Critic August 30, 2010 at 17:39 #

      thank you xxx

    • kath August 30, 2010 at 18:11 #

      I totally agree with Pablo! I was blown away by the amount of looks you covered FC – far more than I ever expected! I hope you can put your feet up today and take it easy ;D Thanks again FC!

    Claire Danes was perfection, my second was Rose Byrne

    • mm August 31, 2010 at 14:45 #

      Just saw so many votes, is this the largest number for a poll? Evidence to what fabulous coverage you provided of this event!

      • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 15:56 #

        Thanks. I’m really proud of all the work I did if you don’t mind me saying 😉

  3. Hisadora August 30, 2010 at 17:41 #

    where is january jones? :( anyway all them looked fabulous!!!!

    • Mimy August 31, 2010 at 15:10 #

      i was looking for january jones too!! i think she looked fabulous!

  4. Jackie August 30, 2010 at 17:41 #

    Thought Kelly Osbourne, Amber Riley and Angela Kinsley should have been on your list…and January Jones, and possible Jenna Fischer. Anna P looked ridiculous.

    • justme August 30, 2010 at 18:05 #

      Already with the complaints, jeez Louise.

      • moja31 August 30, 2010 at 19:06 #

        i think it’s called an opinion, kind of what comments sections are for.

        • justme August 30, 2010 at 19:28 #

          I’m all for opinions but the shoulda/coulda comments can get annoying.

  5. Coco's Tea Party August 30, 2010 at 17:43 #

    Ah no Christina? I had to vote for Jennifer as she was my second favourite. Liked Emily Blunt’s look too.

    • Jay August 30, 2010 at 20:41 #

      Christina was my fav!

  6. Bárbara August 30, 2010 at 17:45 #

    Great coverage!!
    But oh my god, what a tough choice to make!!!
    On one hand i just love all the sparkling glamour of Claire Danes, Jennifer Carpenter nd maria Menonous. But then I also love the romantic ruffles of Dianna Agron. From each look there is something to love!!So hard…

  7. ber August 30, 2010 at 17:55 #

    Never thought I’d say this, but Jewel was my favorite.

    • shubby doo August 31, 2010 at 19:11 #

      me too closely followed by maria, anna and dianna…this was a hard one for me…all the ladies in this poll look amazing

  8. justme August 30, 2010 at 18:02 #

    Jewel was a close second but I went with Maria. That dress and her body looked amazing.

    • michelle August 30, 2010 at 20:20 #

      agreed, maria looked banging

  9. patti August 30, 2010 at 18:12 #

    where’s olivia wilde? she looked so stunning in an unusual marchesa dress.

  10. Alex August 30, 2010 at 18:14 #

    FC, amazing job! I really appreciate that you didn’t skip anybody and cover them all, great job!

    For me Lea Michele followed by Rose Byrne. And don’t forget January Jones in her beautiful Versace Couture!

  11. kath August 30, 2010 at 18:15 #

    People need to take it easy – so many looks were fabulous, and it must have been so so hard to pick a top 12 when so many were sublime! FC does such a great job – so if your very favourite didn’t make the poll just be happy you got to see it :) Be glass half-full, people :)

    • Fashion Critic August 30, 2010 at 18:34 #


      I’m glad you appreciate how difficult it was

      • kath August 30, 2010 at 18:49 #

        You’re welcome FC! You’re coverage today has been phenomenal! I’ve had a tough day today but every time I refreshed my page there were new emmy looks up on your site – they kept cheering me up :) My favourite look was Rose Byrne – but I thought so many of the women were stunning! Thanks again xx

  12. Elaine August 30, 2010 at 18:18 #

    well done on your terrific coverage of the event.
    so many to choose from!!! I went with Dianna in Carolina Herrera in the end, she looks simply stunning

  13. Virginia August 30, 2010 at 18:22 #

    where’s january jones??? she’s my favourite by far!

  14. Elle August 30, 2010 at 18:27 #

    HOW THE HELL WAS NINA DOBREV NOT ON THIS?? She looked way more elegant than most of the people that made this poll :O

    • Moxie August 30, 2010 at 19:35 #

      Differing opinions are fine, but there’s no need to be rude about it.

    • Kaya August 30, 2010 at 21:07 #

      I agree Nina Dobrev should have been on this poll, as Kelly Osbourne as well.

      But just imagine how difficult it is narrowing down the girls, there were tons of amazing dresses on the red carpet as well.

      I dont even think I can vote on this poll … lol

  15. moja31 August 30, 2010 at 18:32 #

    very few of these looks would have made my top ten, but of this bunch i have no problem giving my vote to diana agron; she looked great.

    • cecelove August 31, 2010 at 09:44 #

      loved her too but rose byrne looked absolutely gorgeous!

  16. Victoria August 30, 2010 at 18:32 #

    Dianna was definitely my best dressed, but I am so glad to see all my favourites in this list! 😀 They include, Claire Danes, Rose Byrne, Maria Menounos and Emily Blunt. :)

    • Victoria August 30, 2010 at 18:34 #

      Oh and thank you for the coverage FC! Appreciate it!

  17. manja August 30, 2010 at 18:33 #

    thx you ,you done a great job,as always.many great looks,it was a well dressed event.

  18. Jasmine August 30, 2010 at 18:40 #

    PHENOMENAL job, FC! take a bow :)

  19. manja August 30, 2010 at 18:40 #

    i do apprecitae it apsolutly,not an easy choice this time.i still can not decide on my fav.i tried few other fashion sites/blogs,but your’s is always and apsolutly the best one.thx again and keep up the good work.regards from Croatia

  20. StylistLiz August 30, 2010 at 18:41 #

    I adore Maria’s dress. Simple yet elegant with just enough sparkle all around. She has my vote!
    Both Jennifer and Lea Michelle dresses look super heavy with the hair and jewels.
    Kim looks plastic in the face doesn’t glow with the dress. I think it was the 3rd greek inspired look on the carpet. Rose Bryne made it clean and simple looking. Sofia should have done something different altogether, hair and dress!

  21. Letícia August 30, 2010 at 18:46 #

    January Jones didn’t make the cut? I mean, I know she managed to completely ruin a dress that was so perfect I thought no one could ruin it, but still! Looking at these pictures together I just found everything so blah…

  22. mol August 30, 2010 at 18:58 #

    Perfect fit played a big part in which of these 12 looks were my favorites. I really thought Claire Danes would be my pick when I went to bed last night, but then I saw Jennifer Carpenter, one of my RC favs, this morning and couldn’t resist voting for her. I also really liked Kyra, Kim K, Rose Byrne and, after repeated viewings, Dianna’s Carolina Herrera. Just to say too, that I thought FC got all the choices right……there were other quite interesting dresses, but always something that didn’t quite work for me (like Kelly Osbourne, for example – i too disliked her hair, and so on….)

  23. joe August 30, 2010 at 19:00 #

    voted for jennifer carpenter (her BODY! wow!) but only because you omitted kelly osbourne =(
    … and because i can’t bring myself to vote for kim kardashian ;-P, who i really think outdid herself, but that wasn’t much of a task..

  24. Dustin August 30, 2010 at 19:00 #

    None of the above. January Jones was my favorite.

  25. Lila H. August 30, 2010 at 19:12 #

    Where is NINA DORBEV?

    • Hannah August 30, 2010 at 21:07 #

      Yeah. :( I loved her whole ensemble. But I understand how hard it is to pick. Thanks as always I love the site I check it everyday sometimes four or five times a day…Though Jayma’s dress was on my worst dressed list. Eeek the bottom looked like she took scissors to it.

  26. joe August 30, 2010 at 19:25 #

    ps. no one can say it enough:


  27. Alice August 30, 2010 at 19:27 #

    My favorite was January, so I voted for Menounous, but i loove Jennifer and Claire too! it was hard

  28. Moxie August 30, 2010 at 19:36 #

    Good job FC, I know it must have been hard to narrow it down to only 12.

    • Moxie August 30, 2010 at 21:31 #

      For me it was a three-way tie with Jewel, Maria Menounos and Kelly Osbourne. Since only two made the poll, I was torn between Jewel and Maria but ultimately went with Maria.

  29. Tabby August 30, 2010 at 19:39 #

    Nina Dobrev for sure, she was stunning. In her absence, I had to go with Maria. I’m not feeling Dianna…I think she belongs on a cake. LOL

  30. Ev August 30, 2010 at 19:40 #

    OMG. This is the hardest BDOTE choice ever (for me, at least)!!!
    I am in love with Anna Paquin, Dianna Agron, Rose Byrne, Maria Menounos and Lea Michele here. There is no way I can choose a winner!
    Thank you so much, FC, for your truly amazing job covering this event!

  31. Z FASHION BLOG August 30, 2010 at 19:52 #

    My favourite was January Jones In Atelier Versace.

    From this list I’d vote Dianna Agron in Carolina Herrera. I loved her dress too.

    • Fashion Critic August 30, 2010 at 21:34 #

      I’m really surprised everyone is now saying they loved January when every comment panned her on her post.

  32. Laura August 30, 2010 at 20:12 #

    Lea for look elegant, timeless, and still edgy. I love her whole look. Estee Stanley and Mark Townsend did a fab job.

  33. Brooke August 30, 2010 at 20:14 #

    Though not the best dress on its own merits, I had to choose Jennifer Carpenter as I thought she just looked smashing; she really sold it to me.

    I was dismayed at Emily Blunt’s Dior – such a let down. So many beauties this was a hard choice.

    And can we automatically assign all of the votes for the Kardashian’s dress to Rose Byrne, since her Gucci is what Kim’s Marchesa wants to be when it grows up?

    Thanks for terrific coverage as always, FC!

    • Fashion Critic August 30, 2010 at 21:32 #

      thanks Brook 😀

  34. María August 30, 2010 at 20:15 #

    And waht about Nina Dibrev?? She was my fav!

  35. marian August 30, 2010 at 20:24 #

    tough to choose between dianna and maria, but my vote went to maria.

    thanks for the terrific coverage. this wasn’t my top 12 looks – but then again, this could have been a list of 30! well played, emmys, well played.

  36. Elise August 30, 2010 at 20:25 #

    So many great looks! Jewel, Claire Danes looks stunning, but my favorite was Maria Menounos !

  37. Talita August 30, 2010 at 20:35 #

    Where is January Jones? She was one of my favorites.

  38. Chiara August 30, 2010 at 20:40 #

    OMG!Miss Kallon you are phenomenal !

    • Fashion Critic August 30, 2010 at 21:31 #

      thanks Chiara xx

  39. pipsqueak August 30, 2010 at 20:44 #

    Rose Byrne in Gucci! Forgot to comment on your post about her – too many gorgeous looks to keep track of. I was torn between Rose (Hugh Dancy’s love interest in “Adam”) and Claire (Hugh Dancy’s wife in reality), but this Gucci dress looked a bit more sexy and playful, so it wins for me.

  40. ben August 30, 2010 at 21:12 #

    are you going to do any coverage on the venice film festival

    • Fashion Critic August 30, 2010 at 21:30 #


  41. erik August 30, 2010 at 21:45 #

    Such a shame not to see Mariska Hargitay on this list. In my opinion, Diana Argon, Kyra Sedgwick and Anna Paquin look ridiculous. If I had to choose one person I’d go with Claire Danes but I’m not voting as Mariska is my Best Dressed. What a shame.. Thanks for covering the event though.

    • Brooke August 30, 2010 at 22:31 #

      Mariska’s dress wasn’t that outstanding – it wasn’t very flattering to her hips or waist; she looked lumpy where normally she looks so svelte.

      • erik August 31, 2010 at 06:09 #

        I’m sorry, I wsa just showing my opnionin as everyone else does.

        • Brooke August 31, 2010 at 14:49 #

          No problem, Erik – she is without question a beautiful woman. Your statement regarding abstaining from the vote implied a mild censure of FC, of whom we are all fiercely protective. I apologize if I came off rabid :)

          • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 15:56 #

            ooh you are so sweet being protective of me 😀

        • erik August 31, 2010 at 17:14 #

          Ah okay (: Ofcourse I wasn’t mad or anything, I’m sorry if thats what it looked like!

  42. Dirk August 30, 2010 at 22:18 #

    I pretty much loved Christina Hendricks purely because it takes alot of effort to control the voluptousity (ooh, a new word) but i went with Claire Danes. Simple, sparkly, and elegant. She dressed like a winner.

  43. HM August 30, 2010 at 22:34 #

    OMG! Thanks FC for the amazing coverage! This year’s Emmys is such an improvement…everyone was bringing their A game onto the red carpet. You must have had one tough time deciding the top 10. Hopefully future red carpets will be as good as this one (of not much much better..hehe).

  44. hally August 30, 2010 at 23:00 #

    oh gosh, i can’t imagine trying to narrow this bunch down, there were so many great looks this year!

    i would have voted nina dobrev, but in her absence i vote for claire danes. i never thought i would ever say that, but credit where credit is due, perhaps marriage suits her?

    i also realllllly loved rose byrne’s gucci, but her styling was lacking in my eyes, just like when she wore the stunning valentino ball gown with office/schoolteacher hair.

    also, am i the only one who dislikes maria menunos’ dress? i only like her, she looks good in anything.

  45. Emma August 30, 2010 at 23:48 #

    Jennifer Carpenter’s dress is by Oday Shakar, I believe! She and Claire Danes are my best dressed!

    • Fashion Critic August 30, 2010 at 23:51 #

      I know, have left an update on the post in which she feattures

  46. elena August 31, 2010 at 00:46 #

    i love jennifer carpenter and claire danes… oooh shiny!

  47. Amy August 31, 2010 at 01:25 #

    January Jones was by far my favourite but out of that list I chose Lea Michelle for the wow factor!

  48. Nick August 31, 2010 at 01:53 #

    I voted for Rose Byrne she looked simple, sleek elegant and sexy.. but they all looked exceptional and Jennifer Chapman WOW!!

    Well done FC on a GREAT job

    • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 07:44 #

      thanks…it was fun.

      So many great looks.

      It can become tiresome when the looks are boring so I’m glad that wasnt the case

  49. joe August 31, 2010 at 02:13 #

    FC! I did some research and idk if it has already been posted, but Jennifer Carpenter is wearing Oday Shakar Fall/Winter 2010 =]
    You inspired me to do the research =]

    • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 07:43 #

      thanks, but I had already found out and added an update note to this post

  50. Bebe August 31, 2010 at 04:43 #

    Maria Menounos wins it for me. Glamorous, beautiful, and classy.

  51. Sharon August 31, 2010 at 07:18 #

    I’ve got to admit that Kelly Osbourne was really my favorite — she looked so Marilyn Monroe — but my second choice was Kyra Sedgwick, so she gets my vote.

  52. Alina August 31, 2010 at 07:27 #

    Claire Danes …LOVE IT!

    Thank you for your hard work! Amazing coverage.

    • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 07:38 #

      you are welcome 😀

  53. maria August 31, 2010 at 07:32 #

    January was my favorite too. Or actually I had a whole bunch of favorites probably like so many of you.
    I could have voted for Dianna, Lea, Claire, Maria or Jayma. But since I am sucker for lace and romance I had to choose Jewel.

    FC, thank you thank you thank you for the amazing coverage!!! It is much appreciated!

    • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 07:38 #

      you are very welcome Maria

  54. healy August 31, 2010 at 08:02 #

    My stomach hurts. THey looks so great that I cannot digest it.

  55. Linda August 31, 2010 at 13:15 #

    Awesome coverage, FC. This red carpet has been the best in – I don’t know how long! Almost everyone looked unique, beautiful, and gorgeous. I gave my vote to Jewel because she just looked so sweet, sexy and perfect in that gorgeous dress.

    • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 13:23 #

      thanks. It was a good one. The girls did us proud 😀

  56. sara August 31, 2010 at 13:24 #

    From this poll I liked Diana Agron, Maria Menounos, Jewel and Lea Michele. I gave it to Maria – that dress + the red lip combo = winner

  57. kiwi August 31, 2010 at 13:35 #

    Lea is my favourite. You covered all my top 10 looks. Thanks FC :) and boo to the couldhaves and should haves and the rude folks

    • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 13:44 #

      you are very welcome

  58. Marvel August 31, 2010 at 14:05 #

    You know my girl Lea is getting my vote. AMAZING coverage FC, your best one yet.

  59. Kim August 31, 2010 at 16:06 #

    My vote would have been for Kelly Osbourne or Nicole Ari Parker. I didn’t see her on here at all. Maybe I missed it???

    • Fashion Critic August 31, 2010 at 16:13 #

      Kelly Osbourne was featured please use the search engine to check.

      With regards to Nicole Ari Parker I just had to google her to find out who she was and I’m still none the wiser.

      Considering I featured 7 pages full of looks from the Emmys I’m sure you’ll forgive me for not featuring whoever this Nicole person is.

  60. Jones19 August 31, 2010 at 19:24 #

    So hard to choose a favorite but Tina Fey, Nina Dobrev and Lea Michele were my top 3 of the night. Since Tina and Nina are not in the poll I had to go with Lea. Thanks for the coverage!

  61. Isi Lautner September 2, 2010 at 02:22 #

    Voted for Lea Michele, but only becase there is no Nina Dobrev, she had the best dress, or maybe Eva Longoria, but they are not on the list…
