The Oscars of television was held on Sunday and as I like to do with most award shows, this is the Emmys Best and Worst dressed list. There was no shortage of text book strapless gowns, but who brought the drama and who should have stayed at home?
The Emmys Best Dressed
Taraji P Henson
YESS BITCH. Cookie slayed the carpet in her custom Alexander Wang. The chains as straps gave the dress a hard edge, whilst the triangle cut out and sheer skirt of the dress gave the sexy side. It was perfect for her. I’m obsessed.
Oh, Olivia Pope you stunning POTUS mistress you. Bringing the gladiator to the red carpet I love this super embellished slightly transparent midi dress on her with strong shoulders giving her the power angle. The thigh split also makes it super sexy, but toned down with the simple sandals.
I’m pretty sure this dress is Atelier Versace and it’s amazing. It channels lingerie/corsetry very strongly but isn’t overly sexy, helped by the soft, feminine skirt, her demure hairstyle and simple make up. Wrong bag tho.
This woman can do no wrong. Ok it didn’t sparkle from miles away and yes it was a simple dress but it fell so well on her and complemented her hair colour so amazingly. The double cut outs on the side of the dress plus the low scooped neck revealing the titties gave the sex appeal that we want from Laverne. Werk.
I don’t now who this woman is but I do know that her dress is fire and she’s killing it. The strategically filled in triangles covering her dignity, she shimmered like a geometrical goddess down that red carpet. Yes girl!
Jamie Lee Curtis
How wonderfully appropriate yet subtly sexy for her age, she cast a shadow over a lot of the younger attendees. *snaps for Jamie Lee*
I mean the hair suited everything so well and she looked amazing and the accessories matched perfectly, but the dress itself wasn’t anything too exciting – it’s hard for a simple strapless dress to slay and this was no exception.
This made me upset. I know Gaga has toned down a lot these days, she’s no longer the meat-dress wearing character we used to know, and I love this new Gaga. But, this dress was just ok. I get the asymmetrical structure with the interesting pocket thing on the side but I was hoping she’d wear something was was tailored to perfection and that was so powerful that the seed of envy would have been planted in everyone else on the carpet. Especially due to her new character on American Horror Story but no. *sigh* please next time Gaga leave some snatched weaves laying bloody on the red carpet.
She would only have been put in best dressed for her genetic superiority and although I love the colour of the dress and it’s embellishments, it’s nothing special. It’s a safe dress, and it makes me a little sad.
Shout out to the worst tailored trousers of the night..
The Emmys Worst Dressed
I never thought I would say this but her dress is Versace and I hate it. The left of her looks like a flamenco dancer whilst the right looks like some sort of showgirl gown…well I’m not sure. I’m not sure if the dress would have been great minus the flamenco side. It was like a female trying to be sexy Big Bird. OMG I’m so sorry.
Tracee Ellis Ross
This woman is wearing a 5-tiered cake and I hate it.
The dress was way too embellished for her – this would have suited someone with dark hair much better. It was underwhelming.
It was boring, the main colour of the dress washed her out, I’m not sure what’s going on with the pattern/colours on the top of the dress (unnecessary) and its structure was…crap. Sorry not sorry.
A horrible taffeta mess.
Looks like she borrowed the dress from the Angel that sits on top of your Christmas tree. The structure is saddening.
To be very honest with you, everything freaked me the hell out.
Somewhere an old brothel’s drapes are missing…
