celeb style: 2010 emmys

note: this is not a collection of best/worst dressed at the emmys.  although i do love those articles [and have attached links to many of them at the end of this post], i would rather use this opportunity to just highlight the dresses worn which i personally find the most beautiful, interesting, & all-in-all pretty.  i am also withholding judgement in regards to hair/makeup choices, as well as the so-called appropriateness of the dress for this occasion.  instead, i invite you to just revel in the beauty that is formalwear fashion.  let's begin! :

all-around faves:
so many of my fave TV actresses really rocked the red carpet!
 jenna fischer [versace], jessalyn gilsig [nicole miller]
emily deschanel [max azria atelier], mariska hargitay [vera wang]

i would give the best look award to:
jayma mays
her navy blue burberry prorsum dress not only hugs her body perfectly, but also compliments her gorgeous red hair -- it's also great to see her hair down & with body, considering her TV alter-ego always has it pinned back or stick-straight with just a flip on the end!  aside from the color, the dress is honestly just stunning.

zac posen lovelies:
cheryl hines & olivia munn

black beauties:
kelly osbourne [tony ward], angela kinsey [romona keveza],
eva longoria parker [robert rodriguez],  heidi klum [marchesa]

sexy & sparkly:
claire danes [armani prive], heather morris [ina soltani]
maria menounos [ralph & russo custom couture]

grecian godesses:
amber riley [melissa masse], sarah hyland [pamella roland]
rose byrne [gucci], kim kardashian [marchesa resort 2011]

 it was also great to see dianna aragon rocking the carolina herrara resort 2011 again :
