Just like the rest of the Emmy viewers, I watch the show to see the best dressed and the best coifed. I will admit that the "Desperate Housewives" stole the show with their strapless dresses. Wait until you see what they are going to wear on Wisterial Lane this season.
From Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria to Nicollette Sheridan, these women reigned over th red carpet. The fashionistas were abuzz. Felicity donned a sleek strawberry bias-cut silk satin gown by Kevan Hall with Swaroski crystals on the waist and wide straps.
Teri Hatcher looked fabulous in a deep purple strapless gown by J. Mendel. Marcia Cross had an deep emerald taffeta gown on. It's designed by Elie Saab.
Nicollette Sheridan wore an icy pink strapless satin Armani gown. Eva Longoria was dressed in a coral crepe column designed by Angel Sanchez.
Portia de Rossi wore an orange chiffon gown by Ungaro. Jennifer Love Hewitt wore a full-skirted black strapless tea-length gown. Halle Berry had a purple, strapless dress tucked and wrapped around her body. Glen Close had on a black velvet Armani strapless gown.
Dresses that turned head in a dangerous way were the glittering nude slip dress and naked strapless dresses worn by Mischa Barton and Kyra Sedgwick.
In case you are wondering, the magnolia pins which almost everybody wore -men and women to show support for Katrina evacuees- were designed by Los Angeles jewelry designer Michelle Roy. The color orange was in.
For sure, the awards have become the staple of the fashion industry. Designers take huge bets on such nights. Actresses bet that fans will adore them more. Viewers are happy to get new knock-off ideas. Seriously, any of the above-named dresses and gowns can be made into a knock-off for homecoming queens, prom and quinceanera fashion-savvy young women.
Let's wait to see which one of those dresses and gowns is going to be the favorite at 2006 prom and Quinceanera ceremonies.
