Can you believe it's Emmy Season again? I'm so excited!!!
I'm doing something very different this year. Rather than wait until all the pics are out online I'm going to compose some very quick thoughts about each look while I watch the Main Event, er, I mean Red Carpet, and then plug the pics in afterward.
I'm worried if I wait until I have time to compose thoughtful diatribes about each we'll still be waiting on Friday. And I would never do that to you.
I've got my laptop, a glass of whiskey and a very cool hubs who's giving up prime couch time for you.
Sexy as hell from the torso up, boring as hell from the torso down
Chains can be sexy; clavicles aren't usually. In fact, this dress looks more like a sequined potato sack than anything else.
I hate this dress almost as much as I love The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Maybe more.
I like the color and I like the black edging above but I'm not in love the overall look. It's missing something but I'm not sure what. Softer hair maybe. Seriously, she's so blond now it looks crispy.
I love the straps but the rest of it's kind of boring.
This has so much potential and I just can't get past the giant pink fabric rose dead center. It's distracting me.
From the waist up I'm loving it, particularly the starfish pin. It's gorgeous. From the waist down I want I want to shake her and scream that this isn't a remake of an old Love Boat episode!
Nice color, good cut; not sure what the appliques are up on the straps and her rib cage but I'll go with it.
From the waist up I thought this looked way too heavy but then the camera panned out and I'm loving it. The tea-length is perfect and the slip up her leg is excellent. And for once someone listened and did a three-quarter sleeve. Kudos to Kerry.
No one ever accused her a being subtle did they? Still, this is pretty awesome. I really like the diamond pattern and the sequins and even the color, which is great. She looks like maybe she could have borrowed a comb from a friend but other than that I'm happy with this.
This is a really tough color to pull off and she's doing it perfectly. It would have been ever so slightly boring if it weren't for the belt and train, luckily someone thought to add them on.
Love this. The tea length is so feminine and pretty and the dress itself is delicate and beautiful.
Fabulous hair, love the red lip, and while the dress could have been a more distinctive color I don't actively hate it.
I really like the boldness of this look. If only her pants had been hemmed.
How many strapless mermaid tail dresses will she wear before even SHE is bored of them?
I really like this form the waist up and from the waist down it looks like something from Little House. That bottom ruffle is really awful.
This looks like something Lady Mary gave one second of consideration to before tossing it aside as both too twee and to too smutty.
This is okay. I like that it's midnight blue as opposed to the ubiquitous black but if it weren't for the appliques this would be so dull.
From the fringe up this is boring, from the fringe down it's awful.
I like the color and I like the heavy fabric and I like the cut and the straps but I am having a really hard time with the weird gray patch.
I want to like this so much but it's just too noisy or busy or awful or something like that.
Finally Amanda has stopped not giving a shit! I mean, it's black so it's kinda dull but it all matches! And there's some interested depth to the fabric and there's a cut-out! Praise be!
How incredibly adult and feminine she looks. I don't even care that it's black. She looks completely gorgeous.
I adore her on OITNB but I'm not loving this kindergarten concoction. I love primary colors as much as the next lady but I'm not feeling this.
You can so tell just how tall this woman is by noting how tiny her head looks atop her body. Not that there's anything wrong with that...and she looks great. But it's sort of distracting.
Loving the midnight blue, loving the train, loving the strapless look. I wish her necklace was either bigger or a choker. But I'm not picky or anything.
WTF, young lady? Did Betty Draper fire your stylist? Go to your room and think about this travesty.
Great color, love the green, fabulous shoes (not that you can see them but trust me).
I think I made myself perfectly on the subject of shoulder crowns when Kristen Bell pulled this shit two years ago.
There are so few women who can wear this color and it makes me sooo happy. She's freaking gorgeous, as always.
Sarah HighlandWow, the straps are so fun and different (you can't see it here but instead of attaching to the back of the bodice they wrap around and meet each other, seemingly seamlessly). Also, I love the color and minimal jewelry.
Taraji P. Henson
I really wanna like this but the skirt is see-through and the cut-out is a little boring.
I know I should give her the same crap I gave Taraji but there's something about this look that's really awesome. Maybe it's the yellow? I know that doesn't make sense because you KNOW how I feel about two-tone dresses.
Tatiana MaslanyAt first I was bummed with the pants (what would Allison Hendricks say?) but on the other hand it's a very sexy suit and she looks amazing. Also, love the shoes.
WORST IN SHOW
What in the ever-loving gawd is this supposed to be? A joke? A circus performer's costume?
BEST IN SHOW
Fabulous color, amazing cut, love the shark fin up top. In fact, the shark fin puts it over the top. She looks completely stunning.
And that's it, lovies! I had a bunch more but couldn't find pics fast enough. C'est la vie.
Until next time! Mwah!!!
