I think it's fair to say that the 2012

Emmy Awards

had no significant hits or misses on the red carpet, though, as always, some do it better than others. Here are my Emmy favs and my "needs improvement."

[caption id="attachment_17105" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Claire Danes ~ LANVIN ~ I'll be kind because she's pregnant and showing, plus I love Lanvin. BUT this was not the most flattering dress. She also could have used a large cuff."]



[caption id="attachment_17106" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman ~ ANTONIO BERADI ~ Nicole always hits it on the mark for me. She knows her body and knows how to dress it. Keith, your shirt sleeves are too long."]



[caption id="attachment_17107" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Hayden Panettiere ~ MARCHESA ~ A stunning gown. Hayden looks beautiful though the gown is a little "senior" for her. That doesn't bother me too much. However, I would have liked to get a peek at her shoes, so maybe raise the hem about an inch or two??"]



[caption id="attachment_17108" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Zooey Deschanel ~ REEM ACRA ~ Gorgeous dress but not on her! This is a case where the dress is wearing the person. Zooey can't or doesn't know/have what it takes to handle that style of a dress. It's wearing her. AND to make matters worse - that's hairstyle doesn't work. Too much bang, too forced. "]



[caption id="attachment_17109" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Julianne Moore ~ DIOR ~ She's been criticized for this look BUT not by me. I love the yellow and the style. It's a new approach for Dior Couture and Julianne is wearing it right. I love the diamond bracelet too."]



[caption id="attachment_17110" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Johnny Galecki ~ Everything is right except for the ill-fitted trouser. They should have been slimmer and they have too much break. The blazer, I'd wear in a NY minute!!"]



[caption id="attachment_17111" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="January Jones ~ ZAC POSEN ~ This dress proves why January is always a red carpet favorite. She's perfect from head-to-toe."]



[caption id="attachment_17112" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Kevin Costner ~ Oh Kevin, only Tom Ford can pull this off. Put a tie on!!!"]



[caption id="attachment_17113" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Emily VanCamp ~ J. MENDEL ~ So beautiful and flowy. This is the more youthful, yet sophisticated look that Hayden Panettiere should have done."]



[caption id="attachment_17114" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Zosia Mamet ~ BIBHU MOHAPATRA ~ Its modern and edgy. Perhaps the reasons why Zosia is making the worst dressed list, BUT not here! "]



[caption id="attachment_17115" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Lucy Liu ~ VERSACE ~ It wasn't sequin. It's metal! Fabulous (and heavy she said)."]



[caption id="attachment_17116" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Giuliana Rancic ~ ROMONA KEVEZA ~ The Fashion Police co-star did it right. She better or Joan would let her have it."]



[caption id="attachment_17117" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Edie Falco ~ STELLA McCARTNEY ~ I love the edgy style of the dress. I love that its more about design and being modern rather that "pretty" "flowy" blah blah blah. The one thing, just a minor one... the gold metallic belt gives a funny visual perception to the waist."]



[caption id="attachment_17118" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Lena Dunham ~ PRADA ~ I'm on the fence here. I feel it's too much dress, though I like the juxtaposition of the short short hair with the matronly gown. Lena's slouchy posture is a part of the problem."]



[caption id="attachment_17119" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Carson Daly ~ Did Carson rent his tux? Its too boxy, the sleeves are too long and the tie too loose."]



[caption id="attachment_17120" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Adam Driver ~ I'm a fan of HBO's Girls where Adam is almost always naked. Well, he looks good with clothes on too as you can see. The only tiny improvement would be to raise the jacket sleeve up to the wrist so the white shirt cuff can peek through."]



[caption id="attachment_17121" align="aligncenter" width="478" caption="Elisabeth Moss ~ DOLCE & GABBANA ~ Again, on trend with florals which, in this case, reinterpret old Hollywood style. I think Elisabeth looks great."]
