The good, the bad and the ugly of the Emmys red carpet

Monday was not just the first day of classes. It was television’s biggest award night of the year as well.

All the stars came out, fingers crossed in hopes that they’d walk home with one of the coveted statues. Fan favorites “Modern Family” and “Breaking Bad” walked away happy with their award sweeps. Our very own Meadows alumna, Kathy Bates, walked away with an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries for her role in “American Horror Story: Coven.”

Even bigger than the shows and the people in them was the fashion of the red carpet. There were those who played it safe and those who dressed to impress. “Masters of Sex” star Lizzy Caplan channeled old Hollywood in her sophisticated and stunning black and white Donna Karan Atelier gown. My favorite of the night, though, was Gwen Stefani’s Swarovski Versace sleek silver skirt and shirt combo with a plunging caged neckline.

Unfortunately, not all chose as wisely as Stefani did. Bless Lena Dunham’s heart, but her Giambattista Valli dress, if one can call it that, was nothing shy of a tragedy. And Katherine Heigl, the fact that your gown was a vintage John Hayles didn’t make it any less horrendous.
