The Emmys; Boobs and Dresses

September 24, 2012 § 8 Comments

It wasn’t until I met my biological sister that I realized my boobs were a genetic component to the makeup of me. Before then I’d assumed they were a terrible mistake meant to be placed above someone else’s heart.

But within the last year (or so) I’ve come to grips with what God gave me (thanks to my sister and the way she wears hers gorgeously) and I’m starting to kind of like them. I wish they’d stand up without help, but I don’t hate them like I did.

Last night’s Emmys red carpet was a bosom baring display.

One after another busty girls allowed their flesh to peek out from the beneath most dazzling dresses.

I felt a kinship.

Femininity in fashion never looked prettier.

But many on Twitter didn’t feel the same.

A barrage of nasty tweets proclaimed the look tacky and cheap, trying too hard and pathetic. The disdain for what I viewed as fashion risk taking (I do consider it a risk) combined with body acceptance was a disappointment.

So why all the fuss?

There were plenty of legs showing, too. And backs. And shoulders. And low cut dresses on flatter chested girls.

I don’t have an answer on this. I can’t explain why there was so much backlash, though I bet it has something to do with the new female empowerment or some sort of hatred toward women or the whole mother prostitute thingy. I don’t write about that stuff. I don’t think I’m deep enough.

I liked all the boobs.

I liked Heidi showing all that leg, though I wasn’t crazy about the dress.

I liked Ginnifer Goodwin’s choice not to show very much at all in that unbelievable red and nude flowered Monique Lhullier.

I liked that each woman chose the image that she wanted to project for the night.

As for the girls who put their girls on display.

I think you looked lovely (and not in a sexy vroom vroom kind of way).

Just plain lovely.

What did you think about the dresses? Did the boobs bother you? Have a favorite I didn’t mention?

XOM

Kat Dennings. I didn’t even know who this girl was before last night. She has received the most press for the bosom baring. I’m sure it’s because the boobs look so great, but even if the dress covered them,  she’s still stunning!

Zooey Deschanel. Everyone talked about her Reem Acra Princess dress, because she really did look like a princess. The top, if you’ll notice, was just as low cut as Kat’s, but no one spoke about her cleavage.

Christina Hendrikcks in Christian Siriano. This girl is my hero.

Heidi Klum. The legs could not be denied and the sea-foam green is lovely against her skin. Again, the top is very revealing, but the press went wild (in a good way as opposed to the nasty twerps) over the legs.

Ginny Goodwin in Monique Lhullier. I loved loved loved this dress. The pixie hair and the shoes (clear Laboutins’s); epitome of chic. Even though I’ve embraced the boobs, I still love a good high neck. After to Zosia Mamet from Girls, this wins second place for most fashion forward of the night.

Sofia Vergara. Not one of my favorites, still my Emmys post wouldn’t be complete without the addition of Sofia in this Zuhair Murad. When the camera panned down the dress my daughters’ eyes got huge. “Look mom! A real mermaid!” So for that, thank you Sofia!

    I LOVED the boobs! But I must admit! I don’t have any! So it’s that vicarious, envious kind of love. I WISH I looked that way in a low cut dress!

      You wouldn’t have believed the twitter hate. It was so mean! I thought every single one of those girls in those dresses were beautiful. Wouldn’t it be fun to dress up like that for a night. Maybe we’ll have to create a fancy blogger conference :).

    LOVE Ginnifer’s dress and the SHOES! But I always love Monique Lullier 🙂

    I didn’t watch the Emmy’s or hear any of the backlash. Still, that mean-spiritedness is disappointing. What’s wrong with dressing up and showcasing your best assets? All the women, dresses and boobs are amazing!

    I am so sad that I missed the Emmys or rather missed the red carpet. I can’t believe there was so much backlash! I saw some things about Kat Dennings but she looks gorgeous. Loved all the pictures you posted tho’ not crazy about Sofia either. Sigh. I’m jealous. It would be nice to have some boobs. Just a little. Not asking for much.

      It was funny.. I watched half of the red carpet and then had to put the kids to bed. I ended up staying in their room and watching my Twitter feed, which I think was more exciting than the actual show (so I hear)! I fall more in love wit Twitter ever day!

    I love all the boobs! Va va voom! I’m also lacking in that department so perhaps that’s why I admire these ladies so much. They are all classy and gorgeous!
