Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2010
It was standing room only at The 62nd Annual Emmy Awards, where international stylists and identical twin sisters Sara and Ruth Levy weighed in on the top 10 Emmy fashion contenders. “The Hollywood starlets separated themselves into two fashion corners. In one corner, chic and elegant, and in the other - those who needed more training before getting into the ring with Hollywood's fashion heavyweights,” reported the Levy sisters.
“There were several impressive knockouts on the red carpet tonight. Of course, it wouldn’t be television if they didn’t show a few below-the-belt style hits as well,” said the twins, who have appeared on TV’s “Rachael Ray” Show as well as NBC's Cracking The Fashion Code and provide fashion styling and consulting for a variety of clients in the U.S. and Europe.
“With the teams of fashion stylists and designers (not to mention the avalanche of gorgeous clothes and jewelry) literally thrown at these stars, everyone should be in top fashion form on the red carpet,” says Ruth. “However, how many times do we all ask ourselves during award ceremonies - WHAT was she thinking?!”
“But tonight it wasn’t all left hooks. Although some outfits, like Heidi Klum’s uber-mini dress would have made Rocky blush, others were definitely destined for The Emmy’s Fashion Hall of Fame.”
According to the Twins, the top five “Fashion Knockouts" of the night were:
1. "Maria Menounos, who reigned champion in her $35,000 beaded Ralph and Russo gown. Her dress’s secret weapon? 15,000 hand-sewn crystals. She brought old Hollywood glamour back with a vengeance thereby earning her the heavyweight fashion crown of the evening (Swarovski-studded, of course)."
2. "Julie Benz clinched the win, looking long and lean in Pamella Roland. She obviously worked on her cardio to sizzle in this form-fitting, elegant white number. Kudos to Julie for just saying no to this year's obsession with extra feathers, fluff and lace. Keeping it simple was her best game plan."
3. "Jane Lynch shed her beloved Adidas track suit and was in plum form in a gorgeous off the shoulder purple silk gown."
4. "Claire Danes came out on top in Armani Prive. She was in her best form yet and the gold beading seduced us - Tinseltown style. Her 2 million dollar ring had us seeing stars -and security working overtime."
5. "Rose Byrne gave a polished delivery in her Greek-Goddess Gucci gown. Although a little un-orthodox, we applaud her for stepping away from the basic prom-dress theme of the evening and daring to go for the gold - literally."
Sara and Ruth's picks for the five worst “Knock-downs” were:
1. "Christina Hendricks came up throwing wild purple punches in this feathery ensemble. With her plunging neckline she was just one deep breath away from a wardrobe malfunction - and a bonding moment with Janet Jackson. Who knew double-faced tape came in industrial strength?"
2. "January Jones. Looks like she sparred with a Smurf and a mermaid... and lost. A fashion intervention was then called by the referee. The towel was thrown in - which unfortunately landed on the next contender..."
3." ...Lauren Graham, who had to then pull out with a dress injury. Not sure if she felt the pain, but we sure did."
4. "Mindy Kaling looked like she was about to float away in this goth, Adam’s Family-inspired prom dress. Made us want to call for a commercial break."
5. "Anna Paquin looked more like a bullfighter than a style prizefighter with her golden epaulette adorned shoulders. The only thing that was missing was the bull. Too bad, with her looks she could have been a contender..."
"Another year of Emmys. You win some. You lose some... and we all have a great time seeing, once again, which styles and stars made the cut. To the good the bad and the (dare we say) ugly - we applaud your courage, your sense of style, and your ability, as always, to knock us out."

The Fashion Code has been applauded for it's dedication to eradicating fashion's myths and helping women dress for their unique bodies - rather than being a slave to unrealistic fashion trends. They are known for their eye opening use of before and after fashion photos which expose how women are misled by the fashion industry on how to dress for their bodies, rather than a model's in a magazine.
