You may know her as Glee’s lean mean killing machine Sue Sylvester, but last night, Jane Lynch was the star of the Emmy’s. She didn’t make too many offensive jokes, she wasn’t rude and her welcome to the Emmys song was just fab. Lynch’s fashion was just as awesome, she changed her dress four times, and all four dresses were specially made for her for the Emmys by designer David Meister.
Lynch arrived on the red carpet in a strapless evening gown in aubergine chiffon with a ruched bodice. After her hilarious opening number, Lynch changed into a pewter tissue lame keyhole frock, supported by what she claimed were “triple Spanx”. Halfway through the three-hour show, the hostess with the mostess decided on a rose jacquard ball gown, complete with really cute crystal beaded pockets. To cap off the eventful night, Lynch wore a metallic sage jacquard halter.
All four gown were perfect for her slender and tall frame, softening up her often manly appearance. I have to say that she looks much better in lady suit jacket but the dresses were a hit. Lynch told People mag in August that she had been working with Meister to create her gowns, and Meister had nothing but great things to say about her.
“The reason I really love her is that she is so organized,” Meister told People at the Pacific Design Center. “We started working on this nine weeks ago. We had finished our fittings by the end of August and this past week we just did little tweaks. That never happens!”
The two were very adamant on making Lynch look more glam and less Sue Sylvester “We both, at the beginning, were like, ‘No pantsuit’. I wanted to keep it simple, yet glamorous and sexy, because everyone expects a pantsuit. She was so cool to work with, Very laid-back and very funny and very open.” Successful night Mrs. Lynch!
