Emmys 2012 Part One: Hemlines & Heels

Award show red carpets have become such an integral part of the celebrations themselves that they've warranted their own pre-show 2-3 hour time slots!  You'll hear no complaints about that from this fashionista!  In part one of our exploration into Emmys fashion, we'll look at the  attention-getting hemlines & heels.  

Though many of the gowns paraded down the paparazzi-filled line are unattainable to the everyday woman, elements of each look can easily be integrated into your own style.  This year, I couldn't help but notice the repeated trend of framing gorgeous heels with a ladylike cascading high-low hem.  The high-low trend is not new, however to see it on the red carpet is unexpected in a sea of long, more formal, floor-length gowns.  These dresses gave a more youthful feel and showed off complementing shoes beautifully.  Here are a few examples of this look:

What are your thoughts on the continued high-low hemline and coordinating heels for formal events? For Fall/Winter, is this Fashion Fabulous or Forget It?
