Pretty in Pink on the Emmys Red Carpet
Everyone unanimously agrees that last night’s Emmy Awards Show was flat out weird. Head scratching and nodding off aside, a few red carpet moments really delivered on the fashion front. Now for the good, the bad, and the should-have-stayed-homes.
We give you “PRETTY IN PINK: Red Carpet Edition!” All of our favsies were outfitted in feminine pastel silhouettes. Of all the ladies in pink, Anna Gunn won us over from every angle: this gorgeous Ohio native had an EMMY win (for Breaking Bad) and a fashion win in this perfect mermaid gown by Romona Keveza. The lines fit her form like a glove, and textured black lace gives pink exactly what it needs to be elegant and memorable. If you saw Anna on stage, you could see the top half of her gown shine bright like black diamonds. Stunning and just enough drama to earn a red carpet BEST DRESSED.
Team Romona Keveza should pop the Veuve and toast to a stunning red carpet presence!
Everyone anticipated Kerry Washington’s arrival, our favorite of-the-moment starlet. As much as we live and die for Marchesa on the RC, this gown missed the mark. A little too garden party. The floral accents and embellishments were distracting and inconsistent with Kerry’s usual A-list style. The gown accentuated her hips in the wrong way. Gorgeous as ever, but the dress was the night’s biggest RC let down. Disappointed: in Marchesa for making it, in Kerry for wearing it, in ourselves for saying it.
Are you still cringing? We are. What is this custom In Honor gown trying to achieve? The black fabric says “look at the boobs.” The sheer neckline says “we had extra sheer fabric; let’s put it here.” Watercolor hues have a redeeming quality but in a “this would make a great rug in the parlour” kind of way. We hate being mean but the truth is the dress was one of the worst.
EVEN WORSE – WORST DRESSED
There are no words for this look. But there are questions. Is this dress serious? Is Prada serious? Is anyone involved in the outfitting of this talented young woman SER-I-OUS? The designers at Prada were served a very sour reality check of “happy to be on the red carpet… just not like this.” Lena Dunham could have and should have selected from a number of other gowns to flatter and highlight her body. Now we are left wondering, what were the other options? Black was invented for a reason.
