Game of Thrones and American Crime Story dominated the actual Emmy awards and there were also plenty of surprise winners. Of course a few grumbles were had and while I was rooting hard for The Americans I can’t be sad when Tatiana Maslany and Rami Malek won in the main acting categories.
This was also a really strong red carpet year and the first of today’s bumper posts showcases the array of bold color frocks and adorable couples.Sarah Paulson in my actual favorite look of the night in an incredible plunging Prada gown that made me full gasp when I first saw her and while girlfriend Holland Taylor was absent (she is currently rehearsing The Front Page on Broadway), she made sure to give plenty of shout-outs on both the red carpet and when she won.
Tatiana Maslany has been crushing it all weekend and this was no exception; Alexander Wang is favoring red (see also Priyanka Chopra) and this is one trend that worked on a numerous occasions last night. Tom Cullen is also serving up great beard and tux.Going Old Hollywood glam is Portia Doubleday in Armani Prive and a season in stunning neutrals on Mr. Robot means this is a very welcome colorful sight.Kate McKinnon’s reaction to winning was an early contender for best surprise face and this is another fabulous lady in red moment. Perfect lip color too.For best twirling; Priyanka Chopra in Jason Wu.Yellow also dominated and Taraji P. Henson crushed it in Vera Wang with the best clutch accessory: a custom made Edie Parker.Forever favorite couple Courtney B. Vance and Angela Bassett are forever looking incredible on the red carpet/in life. A different take on the yellow trend and Ellie Kemper’s Jenny Packham frock has pattern and sparkles; two things that will always draw my eye.Amanda Peet gifs from Togetherness were super helpful in getting across how I felt about some of the awards last night and I’m so glad I get to show off her Altuzarra dress too. Another sequin and yellow treat.Diane von Furstenberg is best known for the iconic wrap dress, but she also makes killer red carpet attire including this super bold Shiri Appleby number.A newly blunted bob gives Constance Zimmer’s look a fun edge against this very pretty Monique Lhuillier gown.Matching the bow tie to Viola Davis’ Marchesa is a nice touch and a fabulous look from the couple.This color is stunning on Tina Fey as does the shape of this Oscar de la Renta; a red carpet best?After dominating at the BAFTA LA Tea Party, there was sadly a lack of great pattern at the Emmys this year. However Jane Krakowski delivered and I am also very much feeling her colorful shoes.I don’t love Keri Russell’s Stephane Rolland dress, but I do love this shot with Matthew Rhys and her Giuseppe Zanotti heels are also amazing.
