Olivia Wilde seems to have become Marchesa’s unofficial brand ambassador. The actress wore a beautiful strapless rose gown from the Fall 2009 collection which had floral embroideries and feathers going across the entire dress. Brian Atwood’s Maniac pumps in nude completed Olivia’s ultra feminine look.
Kate Bosworth was my favorite last night. She was a vision in her dove grey strapless Alexander McQueen column gown. Simple and elegant. Perfection!
Red is definitely Jessica Alba‘s color. The hot mama opted for a red flirty strapless mini dress which she accessorized with a gorgeous statement necklace, a black satin clutch and matching black peep-toe heels. So chic!
Jamie King strut the red carpet in one of Burberry Prorsum’s uber-gorgeous draped dresses. Her baby blue mini dress was worn without the belt and shoes as shown on the runway. Feminine yet quirky!
After a few brief flirts with contemporary lines Nicole Richie reverted back to her boho chic attire. Her multi-coloured paisley printed long sleeve wrap dress from Etro’s Spring 2010 collection had Nicole’s name all over it. I’m usually not a fan of busy prints, but Nicole makes it work for her. Lovely choice!
Ashley Olsen brought on the drama in her nude lace-covered Alexander McQueen mermaid gown. I know many of you will hate Ashley’s dark berry lipstick, but I just love that she chose such a dark lip to wear with her ethereal dress. It’s a bold choice and Ashley carries it off with ease.

Christian Ricci is always so confident and easy on the red carpet, it’s unbelievable. Her black Prada Spring 2010 dress might not have been the most eye-catching number, but she managed to make a lasting impact on me nonetheless.
Kate Beckinsale was the impersonation of perfection in her teal Andrew Gn Fall one-shoulder gown. Her make-up and accessories were flawless as usual. We are not worthy.
The lovely Marisa Tomei. She is such a dare devil on the red carpet. I don’t think anyone but her could’ve pulled off a poufy barbie pink floral brocade dress without looking ridiculous in it. On others this dress would’ve been too girly, but on Marisa it looks just feminine and elegant.
After a disastrous outing in Miu Miu at the Prada Book Launch Cocktail Party on Friday, Zoe Saldana completely redeemed herself by looking spectacular in a sparkling black tulle gown from Marchesa’s Fall 2009 collection. It’s all about forget and forgive.
Rose McGowan went for drama in her scarlet red Donna Karan strapless gown which had a beautiful draped bodice. She’s proof that there’s no such thing as looking “too glamourous“.
While most women opted for bold gowns Kate Bosworth chose to dress up in a short and sexy leopard printed dress by Proenza Schouler. Rawrr!
As I already said earlier Rose Byrne was my absolute favorite at the Emmy Awards yesterday. The stunning nude Valentino tulle gown was the perfect choice for the Australian actress. Perfection!
Chloé Sevigny was a close runner-up for best dressed. Her delicate Isaac Mizrahi Resort 2010 polka dot one shoulder dress was an unexpected choice, but I adore it on Chloé. Her signature red lips were the perfect finishing touch to her elegant look.
Olivia Wilde looked like an ice princess from a fairy tale in her exquisite embroidered Marchesa gown. The open back and the intricate embroideries fascinated me and Olivia worked the red carpet like a pro. Gotta love her!
I think I’ve never mentioned Sandra Oh on this blog before, but now that I’ve seen her in gold embroidered Marchesa Resort 2010 strapless column gown, it was about time. Such a great look for her!
A redhead wearing red on a red carpet? That coul’ve gone horribly wrong, but luckily it played out well in Debra Messing‘s case. Her asymmetrical red Michael Kors gown was beaded with Swarovski crystals and Debra completed her sparkling dress with stunning Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
January Jones, like Blake Lively, tends to turn to Versace when it comes to big events. And who can blame her when it works so, so well? I love the geometric bodice of the dress.
Kyra Sedgwick‘s tea rose L’Wren Scott dress wasn’t working at all for the actress. The embellishments and the extra draped fabric on the shoulder cheapened the dress in my opinion and made Kyra look like a third class beauty pagent contestant. Me no likey.
Chandra Wilson wore a black strapless taffeta gown by Pamella Roland. The boring color, the enormous, tacky floral print and the strange bunny ear-shaped bodice were what brought Chandra here on this list.
At first glance you may be surprised to see Sarah Silverman on this list as the cobalt blue color of her dress looks stunning against her pale skin. But upon closer inspection you’ll realize how the gown makes Sarah look extra wide by adding inches of fabric to her hips. Not flattering at all.
I could’ve lived with Padma Lakshmi‘s eggplant dress if it wasn’t for that hideous red floral detail on her hips. What was she thinking?
Toni Collette is a great actress, but she has yet to learn a lot in the style department. Her barbie pink Monique Lhuillier Resort 2010 gown was too sickeningly sweet for me. The dress may have worked on her with either just the color OR all the frills. Both together make Toni look like a prom queen gone overboard.
Mary-Louise Parker wouldn’t look so bad if it wasn’t for the ginormous, absolutely unneccessary bow on the hips.
Blake Lively opted for Versace as she usually does for the big events. The Gossip Girl actress wore a sexy ravishing red dress from Versace’s Fall 2009 collection which had a dangerously low plunging neckline and a front slit going up to the hip. A pair of nude Louboutin peep-toes and braided hair completed Blake’s ensemble. There is no denying that Blake looks amazing, but I wish she’d tone down the sexy kitten and go for more edgier looks. What do you think of Blake’s Emmy look?
