Leslie Mann in Naeem Khan

I may not watch TV, but I’ll enjoy the Emmys. This year’s parade of dresses at the Nokia Theatre were all good. From chic to daring, everyone’s choice had redeeming qualities, but I didn’t see greatness. There was no look that made my fashion heart beat faster. Nonetheless, I still have some favorites. The first of which would be Leslie’s Mann’s frock for it’s stand out qualities in a sea of understated, yet over-the-top glamour.

When choosing my best dressed folks, I always take into account the outfit from head to toe. If I judged solely on the dress or other aspect of the look, there would be a lot more women up here, but it’s easy to chose a beautiful gown or have the perfect make-up. The hard part is creating a look the flows perfectly from hair to dress to shoes. Had I been less picky, I would have Julianne Moore up here for her fabulous hair and color palette. Tina Fey would be up here for her personal best dressed moment. A handful of actresses would be up here for their daring prints and Kelly Osbourne would be up here for three quarters of her dress.

Who were your best dressed choices and why?
