2011 Emmy's Fashion

This year host  for the 2011 Emmy's is Jane Lynch. Throughout the show she changed into numerous outfit's which is usual for a hostess. She looked really comfortable on and off stage. The show had a live-feed for backstage with multiple cameras. There was interaction between former and new Two and a Half Men, Ashton Kutcher and Charlie Sheen. Also, the backstage camera caught Kaley Cuoco and David Spade interacting while they watched her co-star from The Big Bang Theory accept an award. Before the show began, the actors and actresses arrived in their Hollywood best. There were some hits and misses on the Red Carpet. Here are the top styles that caught my eye on the Red Carpet!

Ladies

Amber Riley and Aubrey Plaza

Cara Buono and Evan Rachel Woods

Jane Lynch and Kerry Washington

Lea Michele and Maria Menounos

Naya Rivera and Nina Dobrev

Olivia Munn and Rashida Jones

 Gentlemen

 Ian Somerhalder and Kevin Frazier

L.L. Cool J and Wilmer Valderrama

Emmy's Backstage Live was a great way to experience the actors and actresses in a relaxed, sociable way. The celebrities above look great with simple designs and color choices that complemented them. Well these are some style ideas for anyone that is attending a important event. As always, there will be designer look-a-likes for a fraction of the cost of the celebrities outfits.

Hope you enjoyed,

Until Next Time...
