Post-Emmy Fashion Picks
So the Daytime Emmy Ratings have hit a new low at 1.6, but the CW had the highest Sunday ratings this year. Make of that what you will. I’ve also heard a rumor that ABC will do the show next year. Maybe the ABC execs got pissed that so many of their stars didn’t come home with the gold this year. Who knows?
As for the style and glamour, I thought it was a pretty interesting year. What I love about the Daytime Emmys is that soap stars don’t really follow the trends and all look alike, the way a lot of the actresses do every Oscar season. So there’s lots of variety and lots to look at.
Here are my Red Carpet Fashion Picks (only consisting of DAYS and ex-DAYS cast)
THE BEST DRESSED PICK
Tamara Braun – She knew how to work that streamlined 1940s-type glamour gown. A winner in more ways than one.
Nadia Bjorlin’s dress - Very Cleopatra. The most attractive awards dress I’ve seen her wear.
Arianne Zucker – Very stylish for a woman about to pop one.
Brandon Beemer – Not one of my favorites, but certainly knows how to dress for an awards show.
Blake Berris – I LOVED his hair!!!
Tracey E. Bregman – She played Don Craig’s daughter a long time ago, so she counts for this list. I’m sure a lot of people will hate her silver body-clinging dress, but I thought she took a risk and rocked it.
Judith Chapman – ex-Anjelica looked very Old Hollywood, but in a good way. Loved it.
Crystal Chappell – I only got a glimpse of her multi-colored dress during the GL tribute, but I liked what I saw.
Kristian Alfonso – At first, this was a winner until I took a closer look at it. I wasn’t crazy about the asymmetrical sleeves and the shapelessness of it. KA could do better.
Peter Reckell – Not at all used to him wearing glasses. Kind of cute and kind of “what the fuck!?”
Shelley Hennig – Simple black dress, classic but boring.
Darin Brooks – I liked the retro hair, but thought his clothes were kind of dorky.
Kyle Lowder, Suzanne Rogers, Molly Burnett, Kirsten Storms, Jay Kenneth Johnson, Casey Deidrick, Mark Hapka, Bryan Datillo, Eric Martsolf, James Reynolds – OK, but no comment.
Lindsay Hartley – Why is such an attractive woman wearing such a shapeless dress?
Felisha Terrell – Her fashion style’s as bad as her acting.
Taylor Sprietler – I think she was going for pretty in pink, but she just looked swallowed up in her big sister’s prom dress.
Rachel Melvin – What was she thinking?! What was that big humpish flower doing completely devouring her ta-tas and making her look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame in reverse? Rachel, Rachel, Rachel…?
James Scott – James, put on a fucking tie! It’s the Daytime Emmys, for the love of God!
Julie Pinson – This woman saved Rachel Melvin from my Worst Dressed pick. The black short dress along with the high pink heels looked silly. And without sounding too bitchy, she didn’t really have the legs to pull off this look either. Thumbs down!
