Ashley Judd In Carolina Herrera – 2012 Emmy Awards

Ashley Judd took to the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards on Sunday evening with a rather comical hairdo.

Dressed in a custom Carolina Herrera raspberry halter gown with a fishtail hem, the bow detail at the back reminded me of Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga gown at the 2007 Oscars.

Now that we’ve covered the dress, on to the hair.

Actually, I have no words. That over-poufed pompadour must be some kind of very bad joke, which would explain why she’s laughing in every picture.

Silver satin Sergio Rossi ‘Chloris’ Swarovski crystal-embellished sandals and Martin Katz jewels completed her look.

Are you laughing with her or at her?

    Ashley Judd would be the most attractive US Senate in Kentucky.

    I feel like the combination of the hair and the dress makes her look like she stepped out of a children’s cartoon. One of those ones that is set in the sort of future, but everything also looks like the 50’s except for the robots…

    She looks like from the 80s! Prom queen. Horrible look…

    She is, without any doubt, the worst dressed of the night.

    Best thing about Ashley last night was her husband. Dario looked amazing. Can’t believe her hair and the dress isn’t much better.

    looking at this dress makes me think of some washed up singer in some drag bar. TR-AG-IC!

    She seems like such a nice person and she is beautiful. I feel bad about commenting – but this is HORID.

    I think that the silhouette is good, and the sandals are amazing, btu everythign else is bad. The hair I have no words for, the fabric of the dress is too stiff, an the colours remind me of Charlize’s 2010 Oscar dress.

    Bad …

  14. Moxie September 24, 2012 at 15:36 #

    I love Ashley, but one of the worst dressed of the night and possibly the year. She looks like a bridesmaid.

  15. Jones19 September 24, 2012 at 14:54 #

    She looks terrible. The over posing, awful hair and tacky gown this is just one hot mess.

  16. andrea September 24, 2012 at 14:49 #

    This is a head to toe atrocity. The hair, the brooch, the giant seams, the color, the fabric, the bow, the shoes, the matchy-matchy belt, the fit. Oh I get it, she is going as Paula Abdul for Halloween!! 😉

  17. Christine September 24, 2012 at 14:08 #

    LOL the hair is crazy but she looks nice in the dress. Not a fan of the material or or the color though.

  18. Jess2 September 24, 2012 at 13:56 #

    I cannot believe that this is custom Carolina Herrera!! The dress is so ill fitting and looks a bit cheap. The whole look is a joke!

  19. Yeliz September 24, 2012 at 13:54 #

    At her. The only thing I like about the gown is the colour. She’s probably one of the worst of the night.

  20. Badaboum September 24, 2012 at 13:49 #

    I don’t find it comical, but very very dated, the dress, the hair, the broch… it screams end 80’s, beginning of 90’s….

    • Mary Gatto September 24, 2012 at 14:26 #


      It looks like a Barbie doll from around that time.

    • Nat September 24, 2012 at 14:57 #

      Yep, it looks very dated. And very cheap. Like a bad bridesmaid dress you would buy from a wholesaler.
      Easily the worst dressed of the night for me.

      • Parvati September 24, 2012 at 19:24 #

        I agree.

      • Cindy September 25, 2012 at 03:28 #

        Ditto! Such a travesty to such a beautiful woman!

    • dee September 25, 2012 at 13:26 #

      I totally agree.

  21. J September 24, 2012 at 13:46 #

    she looks like the mother of a very, very tacky bride. who let her out like that?

    • Leti September 24, 2012 at 14:00 #

      LOL, you hit the nail on the head.

    • Noemi September 24, 2012 at 14:02 #

      I agree with you. When I read “Ashley Judd… ” I clicked immediately, but this is very comical, really. She also looks older and wider than she is. Terrible.

    • EmmaWoodhouse September 24, 2012 at 14:14 #

      LOL you are so right. What the what is this mess?

    • manja September 24, 2012 at 14:46 #

  22. Ade September 24, 2012 at 13:45 #
