    I liked every single look from this poll.

    but I had to give my vote to Julianna Margulies in Giambattista Valli Couture, because she stepped out of her BLACK comfort zone and because I love that gown.

    Leslie Mann is actually my best dressed, too bad that she couldn’t make it to the poll. My best dressed in this poll, however, is the beautiful Emilia Clarke.

    My runner up is Padma Lakshmi. And my other favourites are Nicole Kidman, Jena Malone, Tina Fey, Julianne Moore.

  3. Suz September 25, 2012 at 12:31 #

    My best dressed was definitely Julie Bowen. Sorry she didn’t make the list.

      Agree!

  4. mm September 25, 2012 at 12:33 #

    My vote went to Padma, she looked gorgeous and I love that she didnt over accessorize. I am not a January Jones style fan but she got it so right!

  5. TL September 25, 2012 at 12:36 #

    Jessica Pare, Nicole Kidman, Lucy Liu, Emilia Clarke and January Jones are my top 5 favorites, and my NO.1 goes to January Jones.

    Thank you so much FC for your marvelous coverage.

      thank you for your comments and patience during Milan Fashion Week. I didn’t get this up as quickly as I had hoped.

      • Violetta Parr September 25, 2012 at 12:49 #

        Oh are you still in Milan?? It would be a dream to accidentally come across you while you’re covering FW, although it seems quite impossible ^^ Btw you’re doing this so well, I’m so proud I’ve found you blog! Take care!

        • Fashion Critic September 25, 2012 at 13:07 #

          thank you…I am back in London now, so I’m catching up :D

          thank you xxxxx ;*

    Dont make me choose! What a well dressed event, and such great coverage! Thanks FC!

    • Fashion Critic September 25, 2012 at 13:07 #

      thank you x

  7. Andrea September 25, 2012 at 12:46 #

    So many great looks here! I had to give my vote to adorable Kiernan Shipka. Stunning fabric in her dress! One of my favourites were also Allison Williams, who didnt make it to the final here in the super tough competition. She really nailed that beautiful dark green Oscar de la renta gown.

  8. Noemi September 25, 2012 at 12:50 #

    They’re all beautiful, but I love so much that Chanel dress so I voted for Emilia Clarke, Jessica Pare is my second.

  9. arwa September 25, 2012 at 12:53 #

    I think this is the hardest decision I’ve ever made regarding a best dressed actor for an event. I think most of them got it “very” right.

  10. charlotte September 25, 2012 at 12:57 #

    Julie Bowen! She was amazing, the colour alone!!

  11. Agathe September 25, 2012 at 13:17 #

    These Emmy Awards were far better than the 2012 Oscars in my opinion. I’ve seen only one gown I don’t like (the lace Prada one just like you, FC).
    A round of applause for the designers, stylists and actresses!!!

  12. lila September 25, 2012 at 13:18 #

    Not bad for Tina Fey making it to the best dressed list. But I have to say, you know the red carpet overall style is warm when Tina Fey is one of the best dressed. My vote went to Julianne Moore.

  13. dee September 25, 2012 at 13:22 #

    I loved Ginnifer Goodwin, Julianna Margulies and Lucy Liu.

  14. T from Sydney September 25, 2012 at 13:37 #

    Voted for Emilia Clarke!!

    FC who was your favourite??

    • Fashion Critic September 25, 2012 at 13:39 #

      still deciding

  15. Beta September 25, 2012 at 13:41 #

    mmm, too dificult!
    there are 5 looks here that I love:
    -Julianna Margulies in Giambattista Valli Couture
    Emily VanCamp in J. Mendel
    Padma Lakshmi in Monique Lhuillier
    Tina Fey in Vivienne Westwood
    Kiernan Shipka in Zac Posen

    amongst all the yellow dresses, I wouldn’t have chosen the Dior one

    pff very tough to choose! :P

    thanks FC for the coverage :)

    • Fashion Critic September 25, 2012 at 13:57 #

      you are welcome x

  16. Vicky September 25, 2012 at 15:27 #

    I gave it to Tina Fey. Her dress may not be the flashiest, but that is the best she’s ever looked. Hair, makeup, dress, body, pose. Perfection. That is one confident lady.

  17. Parvati September 25, 2012 at 15:55 #

    I voted for Jessica Pare in Jason Wu, but there are many other looks I also like from this list, like those of Ginnifer Goodwin, Julianne Moore, Padma Lakshmi, Tina Fey, Lucy Liu and January Jones. Overall, it was a very well-dressed event!

  18. Mol September 25, 2012 at 15:59 #

    I’m vacillating between two very different looks – Ginnifer Godwin or Jessica Pare, I love them both and can’t decide…….I’m sorry Kerry Washington didn’t make the list, I thought she looked beautiful on the stage Vs Julianna Moore who looked great standing still but horrible the minute she moved (weird things happened in her chest area). The Emmys produced a nicely varied red carpet, hopefully this bodes well for an upcoming awards season!

  19. argentina September 25, 2012 at 16:16 #

    Hi FC! First of all great job whit the Emmy’s Red Carpet, you were perfect as allways. I voted for Julianna Margulies in Giambattista Valli Couture because this was the best she ever looked on the Red Carpet and also I was a little bit overwhelmed by this incredible poll.
    A few misses for me: Leslie Mann, Julie Bowen and Claire Danes, but as you said on a post (don’t remember which one) picking a best dressed was going to be really hard and it was.
    Kisses and thank you again

    • Fashion Critic September 25, 2012 at 17:34 #

      I’m glad you enjoyed it xxx

  20. Charlotte September 25, 2012 at 16:43 #

    Hmmm, in the end i went for Emilia Clarke! She looks amazing and it’s cool because it’s not just a standard gown! i also really loved allison williams’ oscar de la renta gown, even though it isn’t in this poll.. must just be me!

    thanks for the coverage, FC! you get more looks up and in a faster time than any other site!

    • Fashion Critic September 25, 2012 at 17:34 #

      my pleasure xxx thank you

  21. Anita September 25, 2012 at 17:05 #

    The whole bothem row is simply amazing (bar Nicole) but my top pics would be:
    1. Emilia in Chanel
    2. January Jones
    3. Kiernan Shipka

    Loved Tina (YES!) & Lucy too but the others were a bit more interesting.

  22. Alina September 25, 2012 at 17:33 #

    Padma Lakshmi in Monique Lhuillier
    Lucy Liu in Versace
    Emilia Clarke in Chanel

    I can’t decide!

  23. Nat39 September 25, 2012 at 17:34 #

    I have no problem deciding – NICOLE KIDMAN. The Antonio Berardi dress is something special. As far as the hair issue is concerned, Nicole’s straight blond(ish) hair is perfect for this sleek white-crisp column gown, and her blue sandals are a delight. This is the look I’ll remember.
    Padma – runner-up.

  24. Marybeth September 25, 2012 at 17:51 #

    One thing I enjoyed about this event was that so many of the looks were more creative than usual. And the comments here were great fun because there was so much (pleasant) disagreement.

    It’s a difficult choice but I finally decided to vote for Lucy Liu. Yes, I know she practically had to wear stilts to pull this off, but IMO she succeeded.

    My runners-up — also a tough choice — would be Nicole Kidman and Emily VanCamp.

    I can’t make up my mind about January Jones. I think her shoe choice is throwing me off. In any case, there were several looks (like January’s) that I may not have personally loved but that I appreciated.

  25. Aline September 25, 2012 at 18:19 #

    My top 5

    1. Nicole Kidman
    2. Lucy Liu
    3. Leslie Mann
    4. Rooney Mara
    5. Padma Lakshmi

    And still, there are others that I really liked as well. This was such a great red carpet *le sigh*

    Thanks so much for the coverage, FC xD

    • Fashion Critic September 25, 2012 at 18:40 #

      you’re welcome…don’t you mean Kate Mara :)

      • Aline September 25, 2012 at 21:50 #

        Huahuahauahuhua, yes! LOL! That’s even funnier because I’m not into Rooney’s style at all. So yeah, definitely, Kate.

  26. e September 25, 2012 at 20:58 #

    It’s a tie between Ginnifer Goodwin and Emilia Clarke. Both looked gorgeous!

  27. Dhppy September 25, 2012 at 21:11 #

    Out of this crew, I went with JJ, but I would have chosen Julianne Hough. I know it was costumey but I liked her fresh-from-the-sea mermaid. Award shows and costumes go well together.

  28. Amy September 25, 2012 at 21:31 #

    tough decision! my fave were :
    -Emilia Clarke (how amazing and fashionable does she look in that Chanel dress?)
    -Nicole Kidman (the blue details are just perfection)
    -Ginnifer Goodwin (the color, the details,shoes all perfect)
    - January Jones ( she’s daring on the RC, i like that)
    Padma gets a special mention for the great color of her dress

  29. Kiwi September 25, 2012 at 21:47 #

    Padma…..awesome colour and she owns the look

  30. Allie407 September 25, 2012 at 22:48 #

    Tina Fey definitely has come in to her own and looks phenomenal. My best dressed and also think Emilia Clarke looks the most fashion forward out of anyway at the event, definitely one to watch. Thank you so much for all the fabulous coverage always, my go to fashion website :)

    • Fashion Critic September 25, 2012 at 23:29 #

      Thank u x

  31. Tori September 25, 2012 at 23:12 #

    The colours all look so pretty side by side – like an ice cream shop! I voted Zooey because I think it’s her personal best

  32. Jones19 September 26, 2012 at 00:09 #

    Thanks for the great coverage! My best dressed were Padma Laksmhi, Julie Bowen, Leslie Mann and Ginnifer Goodwin. Ginnifer gets my vote :)

    • Fashion Critic September 26, 2012 at 09:44 #

      my pleasure…glad you enjoyed it. x

  33. Mana September 26, 2012 at 02:45 #

    WHERES SOFIA VERGARA? she was the best dressed, this is not fair.

  34. EmmaWoodhouse September 26, 2012 at 02:47 #

    Wow, a great event! My favorites were Ginnifer Goodwin, Sarah Hyland (featured later), Kiernan, Julianna, and honorable mention to Tina and January.
    Thank you so very much, FC, for this amazing coverage. You are a marvel–doing so much of this (along with the help of your great assistant bloggers!) from Fashion Week, and I just wanted to let you know that it is MUCH appreciated. Your blog is the best on the internet not only for its content but for how generous you are to your readers. Thanks again, and I look forward to seeing your Round-up (if and when you do one–if you don’t have time I totally understand!)

      Best Catherine x

  35. Susan September 26, 2012 at 06:37 #

    I’m biased because I love Emilia, but I thought Emilia Clarke in Chanel was perfection. Stunning from head to toe!

    Jessica Pare was beautiful as well.

    As always, thank you so much for all of the coverage!

  36. TeaAtTwo September 26, 2012 at 14:04 #
