September 25th, 2005

Sandra Oh in Nina Ricci.
Why it was a poor choice: Spades, anyone? With her pointy-toed shoes, red-and-white background and the harshly geometric lines of her dress, Sandra Oh looks like she belongs on the face of a queen of diamonds playing card.

Tess Smith in L.A. designer Sylvia Danese.
Why it was a poor choice: This dress is missing a lot of things, most notably a touch of class. Truly provocative dressing always leaves some room for the imagination.

Debra Messing

Debra Messing in Elie Saab.
Why it was a poor choice:We think Debra Messing is one of the most naturally beautiful women in Hollywood. But a brown curtain to the Emmys? Even Hollywood’s funniest darling can’t do justice to that.

Charlize Theron in Chanel.
Why it was a poor choice: Ugh. Enough with the 1920s-themed outfits already! We’ve seen you pull it off already, it’s tired and overdone, and that beading adds another 20 pounds to your figure.

Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul in Kevan Hall.
Why it was a poor choice: Paula has made one fashion mistake after another. Quite frankly, we think she resembles a bit of an Elvis impersonator sans chest hair.

    Tess Smith is actually looking pretty modest compared with her previous Emmy getups. Let’s hope this dress serves as a catalyst for more class, less trash on the red carpet. Kudos to the stylist who added those clear stripper-esque heels — nice touch.

    Though arguably on trend with the Grecian draped look, Tess Smith missed on all three counts what we consider to be the point of the red carpet: glamour, beauty, and tastefulness.
