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.

 

 

 

Miley Cyrus’ Sad House Party

Miley Cyrus‘ walks through the depressing remains of a house party that’s winding down in the new “Slide Away” video.

-Twitter can’t stop talking about Timothee Chalamet and Lily Rose Depp‘s incredibly awkward kiss.

Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to play the lead role opposite Jeremy Renner in Disney+’s upcoming Hawkeye series. I’m surprised by how well this news seems to be going over on Twitter (especially among critics). Is she a lowkey Hollywood darling?

-I secretly love Medieval Times, so I’m got a lot of secondhand delight from watching Post Malone and Jimmy Fallon battle at one.

Prince Andrew continues to implode before our eyes — but apparently we’re only supposed to care that Meghan Markle went to the US Open.

Hayley Atwell joining Tom Cruise in next Mission: Impossible movie is fantasy casting for me.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Hot Priest gave out gin in a tin to people in line outside the Fleabag theatre this weekend.

-I’m not sure about Joker based on all the reviews. Do we really need a sympathetic origin story about a nice-guy-turned-mas- murderer right now? This tweet nails where my head’s at.

Joaquin Phoenix, who is in town for TIFF with Joker, made an appearance at St. George subway station today in support of an animal justice campaign “BeFairBeVegan.” He wouldn’t comment to reporters, though.

-Weird. Variety dubbed a video of Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria talking about how Fiona Apple is donating the money she earns from her song appearing in the film to refugees (the video Variety initially posted replaced the word “refugees” with “the movie”). After being called out, they reposted the video and called it a “glitch.”

-I really like this interview clip with Kristen Stewart on what sort of reactions she’s gotten since saying she was warned that she’d never get a Marvel movie if she came out. (I spotted her in the audience on Friday night with her gf at Jason Segel‘s film The Friend, which I don’t think she has a connection to.)

-I’m having a ridiculously good TIFF. Seven movies so far and none that I’ve hated. And I haven’t seen them yet, but people are losing their crap about how good Hustlers and Knives Out are. The only obvious flop so far: Nicole Kidman’s The Goldfinch.

-People also really loved The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. The compliment I keep hearing is that it’s endlessly quotable (which you wouldn’t know from this trailer).

 

Jennifer Lopez Is a Hustler

jennifer-lopez-variety-cover

Jennifer Lopez is on the cover of Variety, in which she talks about American Idol (“Everybody was like, ‘Don’t do this. Your career will be over, and they won’t offer you any movies.’ I was like, ‘The truth is, I’m not getting offered a whole bunch of movies, so what are they not going to offer me?'”), how Alex Rodriguez supports her (“He loves being at every show that he can be at. I go to all his baseball games”), and what she’s like as a boss (“I’m firm. I’m not a yeller or a screamer. I think nobody likes to disappoint me, because I get very quiet. I’m also relentless. I don’t have hours”).

-Also, this is a great clip of JLo talking about accidentally making Constance Wu bleed on the Hustlers set. (I love that Cardi B interrupts her costars with “Wait a minute, actresses!”)

-This is a good Taylor Swift interview (though I’m bummed that the writer describes her Nashville apartment ans “an Etsy fever dream” and there’s no photos).

-This weekend’s D23 Expo dumped a ton of new Disney news, including footage from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Dark Rey!), our first look at Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil, Black Panther II will come out on May 6, 2022 and Kit Harington has joined the cast of The Eternals.

Tom Holland addressed the Sony-Marvel split at the event, saying “It’s been a crazy week, but I want you to know I am grateful from the bottom of my heart and I love you 3,000.”

-Some of the most exciting announcements came from Disney+, the new streaming service (launching in Canada for $8.99/month). News of their shows — which will drop weekly instead of all at once — included announcements of a Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight live-action series, confirmation that Kat Dennings and Randall Park will reprise their previous MCU roles in WandaVision alongside Kathryn Hahn, news that Hilary Duff reprise her role as Lizzie McGuire, a new High School Musical series is coming, and the reveal that Jeff Goldbum (who I met this weekend and will never stop giggling about) is getting his own show.

-The first round of SNL hosts have been announced. That Phoebe Waller-Bridge / Taylor Swift night should be something else.

Kaitlynn Carter attended Miley Cyrus’ VMAs rehearsal on Monday.

-This is a lovely Kirsten Dunst cover story.

-I cannot believe that E!Online ran their annual TV’s Top Leading Man poll and Can Yaman (the guy from the Turkish soap I’m obsessed with) beat out everyone else. I didn’t know so many other people watched it?! I feel so seen!! (Here it is if you want to also be obsessed.)

-This article about a writer who spent several months of my life and over $1,000 on Goop products is worth your time. It goes beyond the surface to examine how Goop uses health anxiety to attract aspirational customers. And it’s really funny.

-A teaser trailer and poster dropped over the weekend for the upcoming Breaking Bad film, dubbed El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. It will bow on Netflix Oct. 11, air on AMC later on, and focus on Aaron Paul‘s Jesse Pinkman. “It’s a chapter of Breaking Bad that I didn’t realize that I wanted,” Paul told The NY Times.

Natalie Portman plays an astronaut who has a tough time re-adjusting when she returns to Earth in Lucy in the Sky, which costars Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman and Dan Stevens.
