65th Primetime Emmys

One of the most fascinating things about red-carpet events is that opinions on what’s great and what’s not vary dramatically. One fashion critic or stylist loves a dress, while another hates it. It’s all subjective, folks, and there are no criteria to make one person’s opinion more valid than another.

In my case, style is a lot like art and wine: I know what I like and what I don’t. With that in mind, here are my thoughts on the dresses at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.

HITS
