2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards Red Carpet Round Up

Here are the rest of the looks which hit the red carpet on Saturday evening at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

Jennifer Morrison: The actress would have stood out more than most wearing a vibrant red Romona Keveza Spring 2012 silk/chiffon gown with a plunging neckline. A black Daniel Swarovski ‘Gala’ clutch with silver crystal border and a hot red lip colour to match her dress completed her look.

Brenda Strong: The ‘Dallas’ actress shimmered down the red carpet looking sensational wearing a Marc Bouwer gown with bold shoulders and silver sequin details throughout. Slightly surprised by the nude sandals and the contrasting gold clutch, but it’s a stunning look nonetheless.

Padma Lakshmi: The TV host looked stunning wearing a Zuhair Murad Spring 2012 sheer black gown with an embroidered floral detail and a corseted back. She wisely let the gown do all the talking.

Julia Ormond: The ‘Mad Men’ actress opted for a red David Meister signature gown with a cowl-neckline which she styled with a gold python Devi Kroell large Mercer clutch and matching strappy sandals. I love the statement earrings and the side-swept wavy locks.

Padma Lakshmi In Naeem Khan – 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Padma Lakshmi attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City last night.

The TV host was seated directly opposite me during the Naeem Khan Fall 2012 presentation, so I’m not surprised she snapped up this stunning gown.

I also had my eye on this navy-and-black abstract-beaded georgette trumpet gown with a jet fringe beaded bodice, but it was on my wish list for Emily Blunt.

Padma more than does justice to this gown, so the sighting of it on the red carpet fills me with joy.

A braided updo and barely-there makeup provided the finishing touches.

More From The Sex And The City 2 New York Premiere Red Carpet

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall blew everyone away on the red carpet for the New York premiere of Sex And The City 2 last night.

Here is a look at the rest of the celebs who attended.

Becki Newton looked adorable wearing a Celine Resort 2010 blazer with cute black leather shorts.

Brian Atwood heels and a Chanel clutch completed her look.

Cute, yet chic.

Jessica Szohr opted for a tougher look wearing a black Willow Fall 2010 tuxedo jumpsuit with a twisted front.

I do like the jumpsuit but the pants are too long on Jessica.  Her black bandage wedges which are also from the Willow Fall 2010 collection didn’t excite me.

Jennifer Love Hewitt decided to be original opting for a Herve Leger crystal-embellished bandage dress from the Resort 2010 collection which she paired with Christian Louboutin Studio 120 peep-toe pumps.

As much as I prefer the runway Herve Leger dresses, she does look smokin’ hot in her signature dress.

Becki’s Celine jacket is my favourite out of these looks.

Whitney Port wore a black georgette Moschino Spring 2010 dress with front twist detail and a poufy skirt.

Writer Candace Bushnell opted for a crystal embellished look from the Miu Miu Spring 2010 collection with Miu Miu glitter-embellished platform sandals.

Padma Lakshmi wore a Naeem Khan Fall 2008 sleeveless white peony-embroidered flared dress.

This was originally presented as a dress with fur cuffed sleeves.

Lebanese actress Raya Meddine – who appears in the SATC 2 movie – wore a black Rami Kashou Spring 2010 silk organza pleated rose gown.

Keri Hilson wore this same dress to the NAACP Image Awards earlier this year.

I love how Raya let her dress do all the talking.

Michelle Trachtenberg wore a red hot Notte by Marchesa strapless lace dress with draped chiffon overlay.

Amanda Peet opted for a very casual “I’m just popping down to the Mall look”, wearing an Isabel Marant printed dress and khaki jacket. Prada heels completed her look.

Vanessa Williams was gorgeous in a purple draped dress, whilst Melania Trump wore a Catherine Malandrino ruffled mini dress with nude Louboutin’s.

21.09.09 Worst Dressed

2009 Emmy Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
The second I saw Elizabeth Moss I wondered why she would wear an asymmetrical gown with that stunning necklace.

But it appears that the jeweled neckline is built into her Grecian inspired Reem Acra taupe gown.

Between the creases and the draping I just couldn’t love this gown.

Tried To Love It, But Couldn’t Award
I loved this Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 gown on the runway, but I don’t think it works on Leighton Meester at all.

She’s normally edgy on the red carpet, and I agree this is not the place to go edgy but I was just bored by her look, and she looked really bored on the red carpet too.

The only thing I like here is her Bottega Veneta clutch, as her hair and make-up is pretty awful too.

Most Disappointing Award
Kyra Sedgwick is always stunning on the red carpet, but I found it very difficult to love this L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 pink dress.

Kyra and L’Wren Scott often work very well together, but I really didn’t like the pink, nor the embellishments.

It felt too cutesy for a grown woman.

Should’ve Worn A Gown Award
Nothing appealed to me with regards to Mary Louise Parker dress.

Firstly I would’ve preferred her in a gown. Secondly I don’t like the bow on the hip and lastly the two-tone purple is hideous.

Worst Dressed Runner-Up Award
Padma Lakshmi was so close to being voted worst dressed. I just hated that red floral detail on the hip.

It was so unnecessary. Despite that it was a pretty boring Badgley Mischka gown anyway.

Least Flattering Award
I would be surprised if Sarah Silverman ever makes it onto the Best Dressed list, but this gown had great potential.

It’s a great colour on her, but the gown adds at least 15ins to each side of her hips.

How is this a good thing?

Pukey Pink Award
What’s with all the pukey pink gowns on the red carpet.

I know it’s a fresh summer time colour, but I really didn’t think it looked good on Toni Collette.

She is usually one to watch on the red carpet, but the look fails to impress me.

Who Wore Halston Better? Eva Longoria or Padma Lakshmi

Eva Longoria was the first to wear this mauve Halston Spring 2009 strapless jumpsuit to “The Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup’s” in Beverly Hills.

She accessorized with gold bangles and had slicked back her hair for this charitable occasion.

Padma Lakshmi attended the “6th Annual Wayuu Taya Foundation Gala”, and made an appearance on the “Letterman” show wearing the same jumpsuit with a lariat necklace and gold bracelets from her own jewelry line.

The jumpsuit looked too long for the petite Eva, highlighting the fact that she needed to take a few inches off the pants to stop them dragging on the floor, so Padma wins for me.
