Emmys Worst Dressed
Who went wrong on the red carpet?
Everyone always pines over the dresses and fashion of the Emmys, but when you think about it, it’s the natural beauty of the actresses that can make or break a look. What’s the point of a killer couture gown if your face isn’t equally done up? Well, that’s why Celebuzz has enlisted makeup expert and Vanitymark creator Brett Freedman to take a look back at the 2011 Emmys and pick his favorites and not-so-favorites.

There was a lot of understated elegance this year, and Brett took a liking to some of the subtle looks that television’s leading ladies took. From Julia Stiles to Kate Winslet, the makeup was on point and looking fabulous. As for the two starlets who made Brett’s worst list — or as he said to us, “stinkers” — there’s always next year to mount a major comeback in the makeup category!

Check out Brett’s picks in the gallery above, and also sound off in the comments about whose makeup looked fab and who looked drab!
