The Emmy Awards (aka outlet for distraction during the countdown to Breaking Bad) were on Sunday, and while many are calling the fashion “boring”, I think it was all actually quite “classy”. Call me crazy, but I’m over the nude color plastic bikinis twerking all over the internet lately, ya know? Here are some of the best and worst of the night:
First up: YUCK. Daring? No. Just kinda slutty for slutty’s sake? Yes. I actually love the color and beading, but I think the bikini bottom and sheer skirt make this look like a Pam Anderson trainwreck kind of dress. Pass.
Love the color and overall style here, with her retro hair and makeup. Love the dress, really, but it seems about 4 sizes too big with that dropped waist. Amazing. Love it all.So when I first saw this dress, I thought, ok! Awesome! At least she isn’t wearing what she wore to the Oscars… and it’s kinda cute and hipsterish, I get it. But then I started to hate it. It looks like it was designed by Roxy Quiksilver circa 2000. The best review of her hair that I’ve read came from D-Listed: “That hair looks like it was cut with safety scissors by a pre-schooler with severe ADHD.” Preach.
I still don’t know what this chick’s name is, only that it’s a weird one, but I LOVE THIS DRESS! Gorgeous color on her, fits like a glove, great hair and make-up… A+ to you, (insert name here)! Looking age appropriate and stylish… Redheads can wear so many great colors. This is not one of them. I am obsessed with Leslie Mann. For some reason people say that I remind them of her, or her characters from movies. Not sure where that comes from, but moving on… I really like this dress and her messy, sexy style, which definitely stood out from all of the “safe” dresses without being the Pam Anderson bikini sheer dress…It looks a LITTLE dirty, but overall is chic, so kudos to Leslie. I like this, and do you know why? Because it is what Carrie Underwood (keep reading) was trying to do, but it is contemporary and not prom-ish. Michelle pulls off the classic awards show “ballgown” in a modern way, and I think it’s cool and really works. Love this dress, HATE the straps that make her look like a puffy linebacker. So close, so close. So that’s where all of the fabric from the Borgias set went after the show was cancelled… Gag. Even her hair can’t save her from that velvet. Best dressed. So age-appropriate, simple, clean, classic and beautiful. Plus her shoes were totally killer (couldn’t find a picture). I love Aubrey Plaza, and I think this dress is so HER that I am into it. It’s different but not offensive, and it communicates her quirkiness. Complicated name girl from Girls…. Your face says it all. Adorable. I think she totally nailed it. Perfect for her age, fun, and pretty. I don’t know about this picture, but when I was watching the red carpet, this dress looked totally amazing, so I threw it on here. I like the classic Hollywood glam factor, and you can’t tell in this photo, but her hair is pulled back in an awesome, thick, simple ponytail, which kept the whole thing looking fresh.
This dress, Amanda, is appropriate to wear during two occasions. ONE: You are the looney toon from Jane Eyre, who Mr. Rochester locks up in Thornfield because you one CRAZY b*tch (and his WIFE, dum-dum-DUM) or TWO: You are the looney toon from any Lifetime movie that probably does at least one of the following: stalks an ex-lover, gazes at a wall mural of pictures of your best friend…. that you’re stalking, talks to a family member that has been dead for ten years and you keep stuffed in your bedroom, or thinks they can communicate with ghosts. Tina- nailed it. Great color, cut, and overall style!Malin totally slays it with this amazing dress.
Like WHO ON EARTH TOLD YOU THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? Color- barf. Black belt with that color- barf. That necklace with that color- barf. That hair with that color- barf. It just looks so 80’s and dead to me, I can’t even look at it anymore. L-o-v-e how this dress flatters her figure! A+.
January Jones, starring as the looney toon from Jane Eyre… Just kidding. She seems like a total psycho, but her dress is beautiful. Ok, so this girl won an Emmy, and I’ve seen her on Nurse Jackie. She’s good. She’s great. She’s spunky and quirky, and you can tell that from her body language in this photo. Now ignore that, and focus on how well she dresses her body. She looks so chic, and is accessorized well to boot. If she was posed like a pro, she would look like a million bucks. Take a hint, Lena Dunham. LOVE. THIS. Also, she’s in Breaking Bad, so she’s automatically awesome. So beautiful, Zooey! Great color! Are you freaking kidding me? If I look 1/8 this good when I’m her age, I will consider my life a total win. Love it, love it, LOVE IT! Again- Lena, take note. I think this dress is amazing, and I love how she styled it. It’s very contemporary yet still appropriate for this event. Well done.
That wraps it up, folks! What did you think about the fashion?!
