Fall is Here...and an Emmy Recap

Happy Fall Ya'll!

Ok, you know I had to go there...if only I was truly southern!  ;)

I feel like we can officially talk about fall, now that it's here.  Bring on the pumpkin spiced lattes, cozy sweaters, changing of the trees, holidays...oh yes, and fall television!  Speaking of TV, did you watch the Emmy's last night?

99.9% of why I tune into the award shows is to see what everyone is wearing...obviously!  But I especially like the Emmy's, since TV is about that only thing I can watch right now {no movies for us since Baby Schue arrived!}.  I love Downton Abbey, Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire though I was bummed that Glee and True Blood were snubbed this year...especially because Lea Michelle and Anna Paquin are two of my favorite actresses.

And apparently we need to get into Modern Family and Homeland since they both won big time this year!

So onto the fashion...I wasn't overly blown away by any of the looks this year.  I mean, I barely recognized January Jones:

Anybody else??
I thought she looked way better back in 2009.

I do love Jessica Pare though...she's just so elegant.  Way to represent for the Mad Men cast!

And I thought Claire Danes was just glowing...gotta give props to her and her baby bump!  ;)

I also loved Zooey Deschanel's dress...it was light and feminine, yet sophisticated, which was nice to see from her.  

Unfortunately, I thought Kristen Wiig was one of the worst dressed of the night.  I actually like the dress on its own, but it completely washed her out and really did nothing for her.  Plus her hair just looked thrown together at the last minute.  Not a fan of the look...love her though!

I will give a special shout-out to Sofia Vergara.  Though her look was a little mermaid-esque, she totally rocked it and of course, she's just radiating inside and out!

Really though...there weren't any big stand outs on the red carpet and I was bummed that more of "my shows" didn't win big last night.  Guess I'll just have to start getting excited for the next season of Downton Abbey to premiere!  ;)

Did you watch last night?  What did you think?

  1. That's January Jones?! I totally missed her last night!

    I love, love, LOVE Modern family so I was happy to see them win but definitely would have loved to see Mad Men up there as well!

  2. I loved all the bright ywllow dresses on Claire, Julianne, and Julie. If you don't watch Modern Family you must! It is Matt and Is favorite tv show. We serisouly look forward to Wednesday nights bc of it! and I heard Homeland is awesome.

  3. I wasn't really crazy impressed with anything that anyone wore last night and I didn't even recognize january jones last night. xo

  4. I agree with kristen! yikes. I watched like 5 minutes of it, but thought Heidi Klum looked AMAZING!!! I want to be her. or you. whichever. ;)

  5. I wasn't blown away by anything either. I loved Zooey and Ginnifer Goodwin. Seacrest's girl friend and her helmet head hair was the worst for me.

  6. I didn't get to watch---but Jessica pare looks gorgeous!

  7. I didn't get to watch it, but I definitely agree with your assessments. I did not know that was January Jones! Crazy. And you have to get into Modern Family. It is awesome!

  8. I honestly just get a kick out of seeing all these fab dresses that I *clearly* will never get a chance to rock, call it living vicariously (c; I thought that from the neck up, Claire looked absolutely lovely, totally glowing, but that poor dress did nothing for her...while she was presenting it was making all sorts of weird lumps around her armpit area, the fit was just wrong for her! Still, I've been in love with her since Romeo and Juliet with Leo...*le sigh* (c:

  9. I'm totally with you on watching award shoes solely to get a look at what al the stars are wearing. January Jones looked beyond - but I wasn't crazy about Claire Danes. She herself looked stunning, but I didnt think the dress did much for her.

  10. jessica pare looked amazing! sofia vergara's dress was one of my favorites, until it ripped open. that is my worst fear.

  11. I totally missed the awards! Oops! Well, from these photos, I do like Claire Danes simply because of that stunning color! Now that is a pop of yellow :)

  12. Ok, so for some reason the Emmy's were not being shown for me last night! It was the weirdest thing! I looked through all the channels and it wasn't on, and then I looked up TV guide for Charter South Lake Tahoe and it said they weren't on...wtf! But of course I looked through all the fashion reviews online this morning and I loved your choices! :) You guys totally need to start watching Modern Family though, it's a favorite for Cam and I and I feel like you'll love it too! xoxo

  13. Love the "Happy Fall Y'all!!" Isn't fun to say, even if you aren't Southern right?! Missed the Emmy's this year, but totally love Jessica Pare's look! So pretty!

  14. I wish I could have watched it last night! I am knee deep in a school event I am co-chairing so I haven't had time for much else! Happy Fall Y'all - I am a southern wanna-be too!

  15. Happy Fall to you and happy Spring to us here in South Africa! I still find it so weird that the seasons are opposite!

    Love Claire Danes dress - she's totally rocking the baby bump :)


  16. Happy Fall to all of y'all!! :) I was a big fan of Gennifer Goodwin's dress, as well as the burgundy number that Ken Dennings wore. My husband & I loooooove Homeland, so I was excited that they swept up several awards! I was loving all of the color happening on the red carpet, but I also really loved the stunning gray dress that Emily VanCamp wore...but I'm a huge Revenge fan, so maybe I'm biased! ;)
