For every star in a stunning gown at Sunday's Emmy Awards (Nina Dobrev!), there was one who missed the mark. From over-the-top designs to strange adornments, these dresses turned heads for the wrong reasons.
Heidi Klum might be a judge on Project Runway, but that didn't make her immune to a fashion fail. The supermodel wore a grayish-beige dress by show alum Christian Siriano. The strapless look featured a major ruffled asymmetrical hem. "I'm very proud to support Christian, who won our fourth season," she said. "I know he will be designing for a long time!"
Glee actress Jayma Mays channeled a ballerina in a pink tiered Zuhair Murad tulle gown with a satin ribbon around the waist. She accessorized with a matching Swarovski clutch, Brian Atwood shoes and Neil Lane jewelry, including a diamond brooch in her hair. While pretty, the overall look was a bit to "prom" and "fairy princess," according to some critics on Twitter.
Julianna Margulies, who admitted that she chose her Armani Prive gown the night before, got slammed on Twitter for the look. The structured white strapless dress featured large clear jewels attached to the bodice. Hey, at least she took home an Emmy!
