IUC Fashion: The Emmys, Stars Outfits Cost More Than Your House

annapaquin61434742Watching the Emmys last night was quite disheartening. While the world is sunk in a deep recession we had to watch stars stroll the red carpet wearing the most lavish outfits, some costing more than a million bucks. And a number of the stars looked horrid. For instance, Anna Paquin would have looked better in a Forever 21 outfit than the horrid black Alexander McQueen gown she wore that had an asymmetrical hemline and a tacky gold neckline. (Gawker)

    You know whats worse? All these political ads putting down their opponets. Within 15 minutes I saw 3 commericials putting down a dem. Isn’t commericial time expensive? Who is the Chamber of Commerce?

    I always knew you were a vicious queen, Ian.

    Oh, come on, Ian, are you trying to turn us into a bunch of angry socialists now? Who cares how much their outfits cost – that’s their problem, not ours in any way! The truth is I can buy myself a much better dress, at a much lower price, from a much less high-end place and I will still look more stunning than most of those women at the Emmys.

    The only thing that raised my eyebrows, though, was the presence of Kim Kardashian. This woman is so vacuous, so overrated in the hotness department and such a waste of space on television that I really don’t know what she did there and who invited her – and for what?! Anyway, most of these dresses are probably not even sold but lended to the stars by the designers, so nothing outrageous happened at all.

    What’s really outrageous is that those dresses aren’t even beautiful enough to justify their price tags.

    The large corporations are now free to spend! spend! spend! for the candidates of their choice, courtesy the U.S. Supreme Court.
    Vincent Bugliosi put out a must read book about The Supreme Court, several years ago.

    Yes, Ian, the outfits were taking precious time to view. It’s not my thing, but far be it from me to put down anyone who enjoys it. And there is a business there, which provides income for those involved.
    I’t’s their money. I choose to not view it because there is so much more interesting things to watch.
    I partly watched the Emmys, while I was busy researching on the internet. I put it on mute when their speeches went on too long.
    It seems everybody was saying, “I wouldn’t be here, if it wasn’t for….”
    I waited for someone to say, “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my limousine, and my healthy feet!”
    That’s how exciting it was for me!

    @Reality Check:
    I could not agree more Alif. Great comment!

    I tried to watch it, but I passed out quite quickly. I loved the opening number though. Bruce Springsteen’s born to run. I thought they made it really fun. and it was a good start. Sadly, I didn’t see much more.

    Post awards: the comments are all over the news about who wore what, and if they pass muster. It’s my ignorance, I know, that makes me think all the dresses look all right, so why the fuss?

    So totally in agreement with you on that alif. I loved watching the older Academy Awards with the stars looking like stars.
