Since I already revealed my Top 10 picks for Best Dressed at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy awards, I figured it was time to share the women who didn’t impress me on the red carpet. As mentioned in that post, fashion is highly subjective and there will never be a unanimous winner or loser. That said, it’s still fun to playfully mock some of the fashion choices made by well-paid stylists. And more importantly, the stars who agreed to their suggestions.

While there were no real trainwrecks (well a couple were), all the following ladies could’ve used an extra minute during their fittings to rethink their options. Without further ado, check out my Top 10 least favorite looks from this year’s Emmys below.

2012 Emmys 10 Worst Dressed

Glenn Close

Is Disney planning a 101 Dalmatians sequel with the Damages star? How else can you explain this odd black matronly bondage-like dress.

Elisabeth Moss

Ever wonder what the Mad Men cast do on their show hiatus? In Moss’ case it’s moonlighting as a can-can dancer on a Caribbean cruise. Isn’t that the first thing that comes to mind when you see this strapless floral-print Dolce & Gabbana.

Zooey Deschanel

I get that being a quirky vintage-loving hipster is part of the New Girl star’s brand, but this custom pale blue Reem Acra gown is too prom-ish. Don’t you think?

Portia de Rossi

Ever wonder who wears the pants in Ellen and Portia’s relationship? The answer is both. Well, in de Rossi’s case it’s a lace Valentino pantsuit. Her outfit looks like a Project Runway challenge gone wrong.

Lena Dunham

I never thought I’d say this, but I wish Lena was naked. Boobs, twat and all. We all know the Girls actress is a very funny lady. But did she purposely pick this navy lace Prada gown as a huge joke on us? Not flattering whatsoever.

Ginnifer Goodwin

This red on pale Monique L’Hullier creation looks like something her Once Upon A Time character would wear in the fairy tale universe.

Mayim Bialik

Given this gown was custom-made by Pamella Roland, you’d think it would’ve flattered the Big Bang Theory star better. It’s so shapeless. Is it wrong to wish she wore her Blossom flower hat instead to the Emmys?

Nicole Kidman

This Antonio Berardi gown isn’t completely heinous. What lands Mrs. Keith Urban here is all the fillers in her face. Someone needs to have a Botox intervention with the Aussie actress. That said, doesn’t she look oddly like Victoria Grayson (Revenge) here?

Emily VanCamp

Speaking of Revenge, Emily VanCamp should exact some on her stylist. She’s far too pretty and sexy for this dowdy J. Mendel gown. I know I’m in the minority here, but it doesn’t complement her skin tone and don’t even get me started on that hair.

Ashley Judd

Whatever happened to Ashley Judd? She used to be such a consistent winner on the red carpet. She looks like extremely dated in this custom-made Carolina Herrera gown. She’s 44 going on 64, especially with that extremely high bouffant hair.

On The Fence – 2012 Emmys

I’m on the fence with all three of these ladies. I can’t figure out if I love or hate their fashion choices. Julianne Moore’s chartreuse long-sleeved Dior gown is a great alternative, but the waistband is a little to wide and too high. It’s not at all flattering to her bust line.

The fabric on Julianna Marguiles’ green brocade, couture-style Giambattista Valli gown is stunning. That said, is it better suited for accent pillows than a red carpet look?

I like the concept of Hayden Panettiere’s Bollywood-esque dress, but the blue fabric on her Marchesa gown seems to conflict with the gold one underneath. She looks like an early prototype of the Miss Universe logo. Don’t you think?
