Celebrity Style: The 67th Emmy Awards 2015 Red Carpet Fashion

The 67th Emmy Awards 2015

It has been years since I have covered a red carpet alone and I almost didn’t today. For one, I don’t really have the time and two, I was not overly impressed by the fashions on last night’s Emmy’s red carpet. In fact, I was fairly horrified. So I am trying to keep this short and dedicated to the looks I liked and just a few I hated. If a person is missing I either just couldn’t go there or they made zero impression. I had to cut it off somewhere! Every Hollywood celebrity on TV and streaming was there – I could go on all night!

Black was a winner! I usually find black copping out on the red carpet, but since most of the fashion was so bad, black was a best-dressed hit last night. I knew it as soon as I saw Lady Gaga. Who knew she could be so stunning? I didn’t know she had it in her. Bravo!

Taraji P. Henson, Alexander Wang

You just knew Cookie would bring it and she did in this stunning Alexander Wang. She looked beautiful.

Amanda Peet

Amanda Peet brought it as well and I usually find her meh on the red carpet, so good for her.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Safiyaa gown

Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Safiyaa gown and Chopard jewels.

You can always count on JLD to look elegant and in something minimalist. She knows her body and what works for her.

 

Julie Bowen

Julie Bowen in Georges Chakra.

Some may not have liked this gown on Julie Bowen, but I loved it. It was simple yet, elegant.

Sarah Paulson, gown, Prabal Gurung, emmys 2015

Sarah Paulson in Prabal Gurung.

I normally don’t love a lot of sparkle but this navy and black gown was stunning on Paulson.

Sophie Turner, Galvan Jumpsuit

OK, now I might be alone here, but as much as I love pants I don’t find them appropriate for a formal red carpet. There were too many women wearing jumpsuits and tux pantsuits for my liking. I love both, and think they work for a formal occasion, just not this formal occasion.

Taryn Manning, Rubin SInger

Taryn Manning in Rubin Singer.

Now here is a black look that did not work. Taryn is young and hot and this dress was too matronly for someone under 50. Sorry. She must have been dying in that heat!

Julianne Hough, Marchesa gown

Julianne Hough in Marchesa.

Here is another black look I hated. As much as I love Marchesa this was a little too sheer. Had there been a little more layers underneath especially in the bodice, it might have been one of my favorites.

Naomi Grossman, Jun Escario gown

Now it took me a few minutes to realize that Naomi Grossman played Pepper in American Horror Story, but sadly was a horror story in this gown by Jun Escario.

No. Just no…

Let’s talk about jumpsuits which I love, but again I don’t feel they belong on a formal red carpet usually.

January Jones, green jumpsuit

January Jones in an Ulyana Sergeenko jumpsuit and Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

I’m sure many loved this 70’s Halston-inspired jumpsuit, but I hated it. I love that January takes risks though. Sadly this one was a miss.

Kiernan Shipka, emmy awards 2015, Dior Haute Couture

Kiernan Shipka in Dior Haute Couture, Dana Rebecca Designs jewelry and Christian Louboutin shoes.

This girl is going to be a fashion force. Mark my words. I loved this whole look, just not for the Emmy’s.

Another hot trend on the red carpet was pink! All shades from bright bubble gum to pale baby hues. Some worked and some did not. Let’s start with the good.

Joanne Froggatt, J. Mendel, pink gown

Joanne Froggatt in J. Mendel pink, Kwiat jewelry carrying an Edie Parker clutch.

Stunning. However, I just noticed the hem looks as if it were cut with scissors. Whoops.

Emma Roberts, Jenny Packham

Emma Roberts in Jenny Packham

Emma looked so elegant. When she walked the movement of this gown was even more stunning.

Christine Baranski

Christine Baranski in Zac Posen.

Now this is another woman who knows how to dress for her body and her age. You go girl!

Other stunning looks:

Kerry Washington, red carpet, Marc Jacobs

Kerry Washington in Marc Jacobs

This just took my breath away, in a good way.

Claire Danes, Prada Gown

Claire Danes stuns in Prada and Cartier jewels.

At first I didn’t really like this Prada gown, but then it grew on me. Now I love it. It’s so different than anything else in the carpet that evening. I did not care for her makeup (you need some lipstick!) and hair, but from the neck down, she looked amazing.

Laverne Cox, Calvin Klein Collection, red carpet

Laverne Cox in Calvin Klein Collection gown and Fred Leighton jewelry

Simple and elegant. Just beautiful.

Sarah Hyland, red carpet, 2015, Zac Posen

Sarah Hyland in Zac Posen

Some might think this dress is a bit matronly for Sarah, but I thought she did it justice. The off-the-shoulder trend is hot now, and I only like it on those under 40.

Ellie Kemper, beaded gown, Naeem Khan

Ellie Kemper in beaded Naeem Khan

I might be alone in liking this beaded number, but since she kept the accessories and jewelry minimal, it let the gown stand on it’s own.

Taylor Schilling, red carpet, Stella McCartney

Taylor Schilling in Stella McCartney

I loved Taylor’s coral lip with this bright yellow gown…which was another big color of the evening. A tough color to wear, she managed to pull it off impeccably. I’m not sure I would have gone with a matching yellow shoe, but of all the Big Bird yellows of the evening, she won.

Lena Headey, Zuhair Murad, Harry Kotlar jewelry

Lena Headey in Zuhair Murad and $1M of Harry Kotlar jewelry.

I can only imagine how heavy and hot this gown must have been, but it was stunning. Thanks for suffering in the name of fashion!

And finally some I didn’t care for.

Elisabeth Moss, emmys 2015, Oscar de la Renta

Elisabeth Moss in Oscar de la Renta

The only reason I did not like this gown on Elisabeth is because it did not fit her properly. It’s quite stunning but it’s too big in the chest and the hips. Had it been tailored to her body, she would have been a best dressed.

Jane Krakowski, red carpet , Tory Burch

Jane Krakowski in Tory Burch

Here is another pink that didn’t work. Maybe it did. I’m not sure. I just can’t take anyone who poses like this seriously and her hair is tragic. Was this pose for real or was she being funny?

Heidi Klum, sheer Versace

Heidi Klum wearing Versace.

Oh Heidi, please give Versace and our eyeballs a rest! This is so tacky I can’t even…oh and please eat something. You are getting too thin! Your face is gorgeous, but your body is starting to scare me.

Nazanin Boniadi, Stephane Rolland

Nazanin Boniadi in Stephane Rolland

Trashy ice skater. There. I said it.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, Oscar de la Renta

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Oscar de la Renta

Apparently Maggie slept in this gown the prior evening. That is the only possible excuse for the wrinkled skirt.

Laura Prepon, Christian Siriano, Forevermark

Laura Prepon in Christian Siriano gown and Forevermark jewelry.

Oh, Laura, honey, you are looking too severe. What happened to your gorgeous red hair? This entire look scares me from head-to-toe.
