>I’d like to tell you I watched the Emmy Awards, but since I was at my sister’s house that was nigh impossible. Of course, I saw bits and pieces, but between the 3 year old’s meltdowns, my Dad’s random bursts of conversation and my brother-in-law’s sudden need to shellac the wine closet next to the couch, it was difficult to concentrate.
Granted missing most of the red carpet event was my fault. I was catching up with my sister in the few precious moments she had without a child demanding her attention. I did notice that the one shoulder strap dress and big earrings look was quite popular this year, but I loved Claire Danes’ strapless dress the best. It was pink, chic, sparkly and her hair was gorgeous. As strange as it was at first glance, I enjoyed the lovely matador/ancient Egyptian look Anna Paquin had going on, but the platform patent leather shoes almost ruined it.
I have to say that there is only so much Jimmy Fallon I can take, so the multitude of distractions might have been a blessing in disguise. We get it. You like to sing, now try to be a little funny. OK, I did appreciate the Boyz II Men outfit. It confused my Mom. “Why is he pouring out that drink?”
