The Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences held something called a performers peer group cocktail reception, which makes it sounds like a particularly dreary management conference when it’s really just a pre-Emmys party. But surprisingly – and we mean really surprisingly – pretty much everyone showed up looking good to great. What’s THAT all about?
Amy Poehler in Veronica Beard
She’s always had a problem picking dresses that flatter, which always struck us as odd because she’s got a great little bod. This dress is perfect for her, and while we think the shoes are just a bit too much, they make us smile so we’re willing to overlook them.
We always feel bad critiquing him because he’s always got the most adorably sweet smile on the red carpet. There’s no “too cool for school” attitude with this one, which is notable because he grew up with a very famous father and Hollywood Brats are not known for growing into likeable adults.
So we say this with love: hem those damn pants and ditch the square-toed shoes, Jason.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson
Oh, Jesse Tyler, those are NOT your frames. Leave them to the 20-something to wear ironically. On you, they just make you look like a dorky algebra teacher. The rest of the outfit’s cute, though.
Julie Bowen in Christophe Josse
Nothing earth-shattering, but she looks cute. She tends toward very severe looks, so its nice to see her getting in touch with her softer side (which sounds really dirty when we word it that way).
The pants are a little too full and we’re not in love with the boots, but this is a great outfit for her.
Very cute. But GET YOUR DAMN HANDS OUT OF YOUR POCKETS. Otherwise, we’re just gonna call you “LadyHips” from now on.
Mayim Bialik in Tadashi Shoji
Give it up for Blossom, folks. She just barely managed to hold on to all 5 fingers after a bad car accident and here she is, showing up on the RC looking pretty damn good. The sash is a little sad, though.
Sarah Paulson in Isabel Marant
Cute dress, and her hair looks awesome, but those shoes make us wince.
This is fine, but we think another inch on the hem would have made this look a little better, from a proportions perspective.
Zoeey Deschanel in Dolce&Gabbana
Very cute, but we hate the pumps. We wonder if she just doesn’t like the way her legs look in pictures because she’s constantly wearing tights and hose with outfits that don’t really need them. Or maybe she only shaves once a week.
