DivaDebbi's Red Carpet Report Card: Emmy's 2011

My pretend boyfriend Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfelt
I thought there were some absolutely spectacular dresses at this years 2011 Emmy Awards and a near equal amount of spectacular failures--with very little in between. Red and black ruled the night.  After seeing 13 red dresses on the Red Carpet, I'm already over this trend---how about you???

Basically it was either Heaven or Hell...Here goes:

Nina Dobrov- in a red Donna Karan*Best*

Lea Michele- in a red Marchesa
Evan Rachel Wood- in black Elie Saab
Maria Bello- in an shimmering ivory dress
