Emmys Red Carpet: Best and Worst Dressed

 

Red and pink dresses, pale blue gowns and side boob were the biggest fashion trends at the 2019 Emmy Awards red carpet. Here are my picks for the best and worst dressed of the night:

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2019 EMMYS:

Zendaya SLAYED the red carpet. She was one of the last stars to arrive and girl shut it down with this Poison Ivy-inspired corseted Vera Wang. She could, as the kids say, step on my neck.

 

Russian Doll’s Natasha Lyonne was dripping in gold Gucci. Impeccable styling, impeccable posing, impeccable attitude.

 

I feel like I’ve seen a version of Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s Monique Lhuillier multiple times before but I don’t care. I still love her in it. If she isn’t going to wear the jumpsuit, this is a close second.

 

Regina King jumped on the baby blue bandwagon but added some extra flair with the straps on her Jason Wu dress.

 

GLOW star Betty Gilpin glowed in this sparkly Jason Wu dress paired with simple hair. I wish she’d had a bold lip but otherwise this is stellar.

 

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2019 EMMYS:

Look, I worship at the alter of Gwendoline Christie¬†and I fully admit that she’s my personal Jesus. But that doesn’t mean I want her to dress like it.

 

The ladies of Game of Thrones should be taking a victory lap, as this is the last season the show is qualified for an Emmy. But they were uniformly underwhelming, especially Sophie Turner. She blended into her pale in Louis Vuitton — a dress that somehow managed to look both wrinkled and stiff.

 

There was a lot of weird bows or folds over boobs on this red carpet. There was also a lot of pale blue. Jameela Jamil in Monique Lhullier was my least fave in both these trends. It looked off-centered and awkward (though she gets points for admitting she did her own makeup).

 

It takes talent for a dress to look both too sheer and too heavy, but Amy Adams‘ dowdy Fendi managed to do just that.

 

Red and pink colour blocked dresses were a huge theme on the red carpet, worn by Marisa Tomei, Taraji P. Henson, Susan Kelechi Watson, and more. For my money (and I know I’m in the minority here), Mandy Moore was the most awkward in a droopy Brandon Maxwell dress that looked like it was always on the verge of falling off. The vampy hair and makeup were on point, though.
