Emmy 2009 Rundown: The Faux-pas Failures

The Emmy's were not all fun and games. There was a whole ton of FAIL going on there.

These are my biggest disappointments of the night:

Leighton Meester in Bottega Veneta

I wanted to like this dress. I love Leighton and I think she hits more than she missed with award shows... But honey... Two knots of toilet paper on the shoulders? That is not okay. Neither is wearing a dress that doesn't fit.

There is a whole lot of Fail going on here.

This dress had too much skin showing. Period. Too much with the boobs, too much with the legs (not in this shot, but the skirt is barely held together with a single string and the wind was threatening to blow it open the entire time she was on the red carpet), and way too much with the entirely open back.

Fail, Blake. Big time Fail.

Mila, Mila, Milaaaaa... What are you doing? You are such a stunningly beautiful girl... What in the world could possibly make you wear this ankle length ballerina dress?

Okay, from the waist up, it's actually kind of pretty... But the bottom? I just... Ugh.

No words, Mila. I have no words.

Sarah Silverman in... I have no idea.

Nobody seems to be able to stop talking about atrocious this dress was to figure out who designed it.

Why, why, WHY would you ever want to triple the size of your hips?

She looks like she's being swallowed alive by this monstrosity.


Major FAIL.

Kyra, you are an old pro at this whole red carpet thing... Why in the world did you think it was okay to show up in a bridesmaid dress in a color that resembles Pepto Bismo?

Hop onto the Fail-train. This is a wreck.

This does nothing for her. It's too tight across the chest and makes her look much bigger than she is. Normally I love layers and flowy draping but this is just... Bleh.

And the one shoulder? It kind of just looks like they forgot to put the second shoulder on.


Pheobe Price in... I don't care.

Is this a joke?

No, seriously... Is it?

Haha I was going to use your headline until I realized the post would be seventy-two miles long so I had to split it up!

But you were totally the inspiration! :)

And the ballerina dress was the first thing to pop into my mind so I stuck with it!
