It’s Emmys time! I just ate hot chips and I’m wearing jeggings so there’s never been a better time to pass fashion judgement.
First – a three way tie for the winner:
I frickin’ love Julia Robert’s short flippy dress and how shiny it is. Everything about it – hair, shoes, legs, big Julia Roberts smile. A+.
Allison Williams looked like an impossibly stylish present. And Lizzy Caplan (or Janis Ian as she will always be to me) inspired big lesbian crushes everywhere with a stunning black and white frock. So elegant. Love.
A tick for the contrast and structure of Natalie Dormer’s dress. I watched the live coverage of the red carpet and this girl was really working her poses. It was very America’s Next Top Model, and it made me feel awkward and I don’t know why.
Hooray for Melissa McCarthy – her dress is flattering and I heart her.
Sarah Silverman bravely didn’t wear red or white and but went with bottle green. She and Giuliana Rancic had a strangely passive aggressive red carpet interview which left me unsure if they’re actually friends or really just hate each other legitimately and with passion.
Christine Baranski in Zac Posen. Have cape. Can fly. I like it.
Delightful Sarah Hyland combined this year’s top colours of red and white into one look so that makes her the ultimate Emmys trend champion. She’s kinda Sarah Michelle Gellar-ish in this get up. Like, if there was (and there should never be) a remake of Buffy she maybe, possibly, could get away with being Buffy 2.0.
So before the Emmys everyone got together and decided this year’s colour theme would be red and white. Here’s a selection of the red:
Favourites: Heidi Klum in coral and Claire Danes because of the lace and belt but everything else is a bit meh. Elaine’s dress is pretty but a bit safe and January’s hair looked like it needed washing. Everyone else: eh.
Onto the white:
Anna Chulmsky is my pick of this lot. And Taylor Schilling! I am obsessed with OITNB and she looks amazing. Sparkle is the new everything.
Heigl’s raided her grandma’s cupboard. I’m not a fan. I do enjoy the other white frocks and also if Kristen Wiig can be my new best friend now I’m available.
Grace’s hair looks so pretty! But I don’t like the couch/curtain vibe I’m getting from her blue column dress.
Kerry Washington deserves better than an unfinished orange dress.
What Lena Dunham is wearing is bad. She knows its bad, that’s why she’s wearing it. It’s all just part of the Lena Dunham fun and how she subverts usual expectations and standards. But it doesn’t stop it from being bad.
Anna and Kiernan should go shopping with Kerry. They can all pick out better dresses together.
A special mention for Cat who has redeemed her sparkly saggy 2013 mess this year with a floaty, romantic number.
And the best dressed men:
Slater, still breaking hearts. Matt Bomer, yes. Yes, hello Matt Bomer. A dream that’s out of reach, but he’s still a dream.
