As compared to years past, those who believe fashion should move forward, this year’s red carpet at the Emmy’s may have taken a step backwards. If this is the kick off for awards season, we’re in for major disappointment. If the red carpet was a tv show, the ratings would have been so low it would’ve been cancelled. While some attire did stand out, I expected more from the event. Check out the terrible gowns.
Mandy Moore’s gown from Carolina Herrera was a tulle tiered disaster. Having the white layer resembled that of an Oreo to me.
The ostrich feathers completely take away from this otherwise streamlined and incredibly chic Chanel dress worn by Tracee Ellis Ross. Why they are also in a contrast color is beyond me.
Another feathered fiasco from Balmain worn by Priyanka Chopra. Though they are at least color coordinated, the dress in so intricate with the jeweled pattern and all of a sudden it disappears. The line is completely disrupted. Hold your hand up to cover the bottom half of the dress. It’s stunning! The feathers are way too much and saturate the dress.
This collared cape Zuhair Murad is stunning…but immediately becomes obscene by this unlined skirt. At least Gabrielle Union wore a bodysuit underneath and not just her underwear.
One thigh high slit is bad enough, but Ariel Winter went with two. That fabric piece that was left looks useless. Why not opt for a high-low hemline next time if you’re so intent on showing off your legs?
Debra Messing’s gown by Romona Keveza was confusing. The plastic material for one, is it recycled? Or just a spectacle? The shape also seemed wrong for her and those bracelets look like she’s wearing two watches. Someone please tell me she was not wearing two watches.
This hybrid pantsuit was a complete fail with the singular piece of fabric haphazardly attached at the front hip and why does the top look like a bodysuit worn on the outside? It just looks like Ajiona Alexus didn’t know how to get dressed.
Heidi Klum looked underdressed with those clunky stacks of wooden jewelry, like she was headed to the beach and not an award show.
This Vera Wang worn by Issa Rae has great color and shape, but I really wish the sleeves matched! That frilly accent looks out of place without a pair.
Tessa Thompson’s Rosie Assoulin metallic rainbow dress was also great in shape, but maybe a little overboard on the color. I would have loved this dress with a simple black skirt to balance out its colorful bodice.
This Ralph & Russo gown Jessica Biel wore was so delicate and I liked the mix of fabrics and how beautifully it was draped, but I would have chosen extra sequins over the higher slit.
I did like this blazer dress Reese Witherspoon wore by Prabal Gurung. I thought the length was tasteful and the velvet shoes elevated the look. Viola Davis is always so sophisticated and refined and I love that she chooses bold colors.
Sarah Paulson’s gown from the Spring 2018 Collection by Carolina Herrera was definitely a stunner. I loved the sequins and back details!
