Emmys 2011: Fashion misses of Margulies, Paltrow and Wiig

September 18, 2011 |  6:10 pm

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.
