Yes, I’m supposed to be on vacay but then the Emmy’s were on and I had to at least chime in quickly about my favorites and my least favorites. :)
Hands down best dressed goes to red carpet newcomer Lizzy Caplan (Janis!!!!) in Donna Karan Atelier. Just PERFECT from all angles- modern, glamorous and perfectly accessorized.
Second favorite was Allison Williams- another modern take on a ladylike gown. I feel like if Audrey Hepburn were alive today and this age she would have worn this.
Red was obviously the color of the night. I imagine there were a few stylists being like “Oh sh*t…. everyone is in freaking RED!” The two that nailed the red trend- Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who almost never misses) and CRAZY EYES! You guys, look at Crazy Eyes! So fabulous I almost couldn’t believe it was her!
These gowns looked red on TV, but they are certainly more coral- LOVED Heidi Klum’s Zac Posen and I thought Sarah Hyland’s two-piece ensemble was totally age- appropriate and adorable on her.
When it comes to white and nude I thought Taylor Schilling slayed it- love the neckline and drape of the sides. And I was so happy to see Kristen Wiid not looking like a wet mop finally- she looked simply beautiful (although nipple covers would have been welcome).
You can;t mess with Robin Wright in a white tux jumpsuit, she’s just so bad ass. And Lucy Lui looked lovely as well. And we all know Sofia Vergara looked hot and amazing, but I really wish she’d try something new just ONCE. Just for fun.
Seth Meyers was so funny and his navy tux (another trend of the night) was perfect. His wife looked fabulous in J. Mendel too. But WHAT was Matthew McConaughey wearing???? SO BAD! Camilla looked killer in her gown though.
For sparkly, I loved Amy Poehler and I actually liked Julia Robert’s dress on her- if I saw it hanging on a rack (or on anyone else, probably) I don;t think I would have, but she really pulled it off. Plus, those legs- my God.
Halle Berry just being her perfect self. She really is unbelievable. And Gwen Stefani’s two piece, while looking awkward here, moved so beautifully on stage and was so different and so HER- I think it was a great choice.
Now for the bad. There weren’t many, but those that missed, missed by a mile.
Amanda Peet always looks weird and frumpy. And for such a pretty lady, I don’t understand why. I HATED Kerry Washington’s ensemble- it fit awkward and looked like she was wearing a pair of sequin bike shorts underneath.
Katherine Heigl looked like she borrowed this number from someone’s closet at a Hollywood senior living facility, and there really are no words for Blossom/ Mayim Balik’s 80′s prom mess.
But yet again, Lena Dunham takes the cake. The hair. The makeup. The awkward, awful top with that skirt. It’s by far the worst she’s worn yet.
