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 ChristieĀ 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.

 

 

 

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Split

-The big news of the weekend was thatĀ Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are splitting after less than a year of marriage. The announcement came afterĀ came after Cyrus was photographed kissing Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jennerā€™s ex, while on holiday in Italy.

Hemsworth was approached this morning by The Daily Mail Australia while out in Byron Bay. “You don’t understand what it’s like,” the actor told the outlet. “I don’t want to talk about it, mate.”Ā šŸ˜¢

-The Morning Show, Apple’s new show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, released its first teaser. (It’ll be available via Apple TV but the cost still hasn’t been announced, which seems nuts since this streaming service is set to launch in like a month.)

Josh Kloss, the actor who played Katy Perry’s love interest in her 2010 “Teenage Dream” video (aka the best pop song of the last 10 years), shared a lengthy Instagram post detailing the alleged humiliation he suffered at the hands of the pop star. He said she was “cool and kind” in private but “cold as ice” whenever other people were around, and claims she once pants’d him in public.

Priyanka Chopra was at BeautyCon this past weekend and was asked about her previous tweet on theĀ Indiaā€“Pakistan conflict. Her response was not great, bob.

Kim Cattrall won’t stop talking about another Sex and the City movie — even if we wish she would. “It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie Iā€™d had enough. I couldnā€™t understand why they wouldnā€™t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”

Lady Gaga is donating school supplies to the communities of El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy.

-The Teen Choice Awards always make me feel old, but last night’s was especially a doozy. So many YouTube stars I don’t care about!

Chris Evans tweet-flirting with Yvette Nicole Brown on her birthday is very cute.

Olivia Colman is my queen — and now she’s everyone’s. Netflix released the first look at the actress as Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown, out Nov 17.

Sarah Silverman says she was recently fired from new movie after a photo of her in blackface from her show resurfaced. (She’s talked about it before, calling it her most “regrettable joke” back in 2015). “There’s a still of me on Twitter in blackface and it’s totally out of context and I tweeted it when Twitter was new and the people who followed me watched that show and it was from that show. Now it’s forever there and it looks…it’s totally racist out of context and I regret that.”

-Alanis Morissette‘s third child, Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway, was born last week.

-Based on a Trump remark and someĀ conservative faux-paranoia around a movie no one has even seen yet,Ā Universal has cancelled The Hunt release. This makes no sense — not only have movies like The Purge franchise existed for years, if anything right-wingers should love a film about poor people rising up to defeat rich elites. What’s it gonna take for us to get Betty Gilpin: action star?!

-In happier news, The Farewell continues to be the lil’ movie that could. ItĀ has boosted its domestic haul to $10.2 million.

-Netflix dropped the first trailer for My Name Is Dolemite starring Eddie Murphy as comedy and rap pioneerĀ Rudy Ray Moore.
