Emmy Dresses: What Worked and Didn’t

It was another evening of excitement and glamour.  Not only was everyone curious who would win the most honorable awards at the 2010 Emmy, but fashionistas everywhere looked forward to seeing all their favorite celebrities in designer gowns.  To most of us ladies, it was more like a celebrity catwalk.   And of course, I was highly anticipating dresses that would take me away and inspire me.  But occasionally, my heart would skip a beat and I gasped.  “What happened?  Why that dress?”

Erin Andrew’s Provocative Outfit in DWTS

DWTS Logo

As a big fan of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars (DWTS), I couldn’t possibly miss episode 9 the semi final on Monday, May 17, 2010.  This was one of the most exciting episodes of the entire competition where they select the final three couples for the season finale next week.  We all know that Pussycat Dolls Nicole Scherzinger and 2010 Winter Olympic Figure Skating Champion Evan Lysacek would make it to the final (how could they not?!)  So the competition really came down to either Erin Andrews with Maks Chmerkovskiy or Chad Ochocinco with Cheryl Burke.

Poofy and Comfy Get Kudos from Project Runway Judges

If you have been religiously watching season 6 Project Runway, you’ll realize a very prominent trend – the judges like super voluminous and slouchy outfits.  From episode 11 of Project Runway, Althea’s oversized cocoon sweater with pleated tapered black pants won that week’s challenge.  Irina’s outfit, voluminous chunky sweater with large fur trim sleeve cuffs over a fitted brocade short cocktail dress, was the runner-up look.  This episode’s main judges were Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia with guest judges Nick Verreos and Kerry Washington.

The Reality Side of the Fashion Industry

As I am catching with my daily updates of the WWD fashion news, I came across a very interesting article “Is Fashion’s Mystique Gone?” about the changing trend towards revealing the behind-the-scene works of many designers and the fashion industry.  Shows like Project Runway and America’s Next Top Model have been sweeping viewers off their feet by revealing the good, bad, and ugly side of the fashion industry.  The statistics speak for themselves – there is an average of 3.3 million viewers for Project Runway and 3.1 million viewers for American’s Next Top Model.  I’m a regular viewer of Project Runway not only because fashion is what I do for living but also because the show is entertaining.  “Let see what kind of out of this world challenge are they going to make the Designers do this week!”  The drama is what keeps the viewer hungering for more.  Let’s face it – we enjoy seeing aspiring designers and models being emotionally tortured on national TV by Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks.
