Emmys 2011: Fashion misses of Margulies, Paltrow and Wiig

Kristen Wiig at the Emmys Julianna Margulies at the Emmys Gwyneth Paltrow at the Emmys Julianna Margulies, usually the picture of red carpet elegance, missed with a cream Armani Prive gown with a stiff bodice and transparent oval stone details. My mother compared it to the Guggenheim. Well said.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Emilio Pucci gown was a hot mess — too much going on with the baroque swirls, the transparent skirt and the open midriff. We know you have a smokin' bod Gwyneth, we don't need to see it all the time!

I didn't even recognize Kristen Wiig, that's how unlike herself she looked. And what's festive about a brown ombre gown?  She should be putting herself forth like the movie star she is -- as of this summer.  Zac Posen strikes again.

Julianne Hough's Carolina Herrera  resembled an Ace bandage, and Zooey Deschanel was a bit too "Pretty In Pink" prom in her Monique Lhuillier. It was like something she'd wear on a promo for her new show, "New Girl."

At first glance, I thought Heidi Klum's Christian Siriano pouf ball dress was going to be a catastrophe. But once I got a better look,  the short, uneven hem and explosion of ruffles were fun.
