You asked and so here I am…. with an Emmy’s red carpet review.  I have to admit, I did not watch any of it (proof that this baby has eaten my brain) but I of course ate up the images yesterday of all the fashion. So here we go….

Best dressed? EASY. Priyanka Chopra. So good.

68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Runner up is Kristen Bell. It’s a daring choice, and not for everyone, but I LOVE it on her.  It’s fun but elegant and yet sexy.

Kristen Bell

I think  Felicity Huffman is an under-rated red carpet star. She always looks great and I loved this dress on her (plus her accessories, hair and makeup were spot on!)


Ok, Emily Raja-whatshername-owski really bugs me in a Kardashian kinda way. BUT, she killed it in this Zac Posen.  Sculptural and cool and that color is amazing.  Not totally in love with the hair, but no one is looking at her hair- OBVS.


I LOOOOOOOVED Sarah Paulson’s Prada dress- the cut, the amazing texture, the color. So fierce and SUCH a tricky dress to pull off but she really did.

Also on team green was Tina Fey, my hero.  Proof that this color looks good on brunettes AND blondes (see: above).  However, someone get this woman a cuff or a clutch. Something. A tad too plain (but her genius and personality are hard to compete with, so perhaps all said accessories were like, Tina girl- you got this. You don’t need us.)

Totally random, but I also loved this deep green number on Natalie Morales!  The clutch has GOTS to go- but that dress looks like it was made for her (obviously, it probably was).


OMG, someone find me Claire Danes spray tanner so I can have a word with her.  This dress is SO amazing, but the orange face just ruins it.

Emmy Awards 2016 - Arrivals

This is EXACTLY how I feel about the tan.


I was totally feeling this coral column on Regina King.  It’s so Old Hollywood and yet modern. Simple, sleek and classy.

I can’t tell if this is a jumpsuit or a really tight dress (too tight?) but I do love America Ferrera’s whole look. The red earrings are unexpected but awesome and her hair and makeup have never looked better!

I could not find any good full length pics of Molly McNearney, Jimmy Kimmel’s wife, but she looked so great.  I typically HATE the sheer skirt trend, but she looks edgy and yet adorable in this look.


Talk about embracing your pregnancy body… Kerry Washington brought the house down in this black number.


The kids from Stranger Things win everything! They are so damn cute and that show was so oddly addicting (I HATE sci-fi and I was so into it!)


Yellow I love (Angela Bassett- chic, understated, radiant) and yellow I don’t (Taraji P. Henson- looks inexpensive/ prom-like, trying a bit too hard).

Okay, whose ready for the bad?

Now, the fact that Anna Chlumsky took on the red carpet seven weeks after giving birth is a feat. And I totally get that she didn’t want to wear anything fitted (I still don’t want to and I’m 10 months post-partum). But this dress is just BIZARRE. Like a flesh colored matelasse coverlet that caught some kind of infectious disease and then swallowed her whole.  The gathered hem is really the killer.  There are many more ways to style a post-partum body comfortably, this is not one of them.


This Oscar de la Renta would have been so fun and sweet and she could have worn a bra (so important after having a baby!) and loose enough to not have to worry about lumps and bumps but the bow waist would have given a little definition.


It pains me to put Amy on another worst dress list as I worship her, but her current stylist needs to be canned.  She is such a glowing, wonderfully talented woman and this sparkly pea green sack does her no favors.


I would love something feisty and fun (but still loose and comfy) in a print on her like this Alberta Ferretti (plus POCKETS Y’ALL).


Gwendonline Christie is so statuesque and would look so amazing in a jewel toned column gown and yet she ended up in this goth Lisa Frank 1991 middle school dance ensemble. :(


I think this Givenchy dress is both different and yet elegant and I think this color would be pretty amazing on her pale complexion.


Sofia is funny and charming but I am tired of these booby-licious Versace dresses on her. I want someone to update her look to something more elegant and interesting.


I would have preferred something sexy but so unique and gorgeous like this Elie Saab


Another one who needs a stylist change is Heidi Klum.  Fresh from the “I’m dating a 28 year old” playbook, this dress looks cheap and a tad desperate.  Don;t get me wrong, she is a gorgeous woman, but this dress made me feel sad.


I think this silver Marchesa is still overtly sexy but also a tad more grown up and classy (the tassel belt is everything).


Kerri Russel chose this odd gown out of all the gowns in the world? WHY?


She is SO beautiful and would have slayed int his amazing buffalo check Carolina Herrera!


Who were your faves and not faves?
