Overall, I was pretty impressed by the Emmy red carpet. Maybe it was because the VMA fashions were so underwhelming, but I loved more Emmy looks than I hated. Of course, there were still some misses. Here are my five favourite and least favourite looks, and check out all the fashions in my MSN gallery.
Amy Poehler: This slinky Theia gown might be Amy’s career best to date. Eat your heart out, Will Arnett!
Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Simple and sleek, the Veep star was the picture of elegance in this Carolina Herrera pink dress (although the cameras made it look red).
Lizzy Caplan: There’s been a lot of chatter about how thin the Masters of Sex star looks lately, but that all disappeared the second she stepped onto the red carpet, looking like a goddess in this black Donna Karan Atelier gown with a flowing white back.
Julie Bowen: This Peter Som dress is pretty, but on her it’s a revelation when you consider all of her past fashion missteps.
Samira Wiley: It was a mixed bag for the Orange Is The New Black stars, but no one did it better than Poussey in this stunning yellow Christian Siriano dress.
Laura Prepon: Was this supposed to be ironic? Seriously, no one puts on this Gustavo Cadile dress and thinks “Yeah, I’m totally nailing it!”
Kerry Washington: I’m glad she was one of the few stars to not wear red, but this orange Prada was…not good. And the sparkly underwear beneath it wasn’t doing her any favours, either.
Mayim Bialik: It’s almost too easy to make fun of The Big Bang Theory’s style, but she was on a bit of a roll the past few red carpets, which makes this matronly look all the more heartbreaking.
Katherine Heigl: As I mentioned in my MSN gallery, this would have been a wonderful dress for someone like Glenn Close or Stockard Channing. But she’s 35! I guess she was trying to look presidential in honour of her new TV show, but this was a fail.
Michelle Monaghan: I’m a big fan of the True Detective star, but why did this Giambattista Valli Couture silk gown have sleeves?
