Emmy Awards 2008: Cute Looks Vs. Huh? Looks

The red carpet of the 60th Annual Emmy Awards was a sea of bright colors, flowing gowns, and your favorite primetime television stars.

The Emmys have a reputation for elegance and glamour, and 2008’s show certainly maintained the standard

Hayden Panettiere looked mature and sophisticated in her floor-length, beaded Badgley Mischka gown. Perhaps there was a certain someone beyond the crowds of onlookers and throngs of paparazzi she was trying to impress. 

Mariska Hargitay took the recent bright color trend to a level all her own with her marigold, Carolina Herrera gown. 

Not all Emmy attendees were visions of delight though; some guests went just a bit too far in the outfit department. 

Phoebe Price, in classic Phoebe fashion, combined the hippie/Victoria’s Secret look with her perfectly see-through dress and flower child headband.

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s over-the-top hairdo and snake-patterned dress lost all the points she’d gained with her newly slimmed-down bod.

Check out the stunning and…well…not-so-stunning looks in the gallery of 22 hits and misses.
