Anna Gunn in Romona Keveza at the 2013 Emmy Awards

Posted on September 23, 2013

We said earlier in the day that color seems to have been a theme for the night, but that’s only half the story. There seems to be a color war going on among the stylists of Hollywood. Half the ladies showed up in saturated blues, reds, yellows, purples, and greens, while the other half showed up in blush tones or black-and-whites. We’re not prone to the latter, but of that group, this was one of our favorites:

 

“Breaking Bad” star Anna Gunn attends the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California in a Romona Keveza dress.

We don’t think we’ve ever seen her look quite so glamorous. Well done.

      She has done a lot of Things to her face recently, and I’m not loving how it’s contorted now, but I can’t hate on how nice the rest of her looks in the dress.

      • Fred Vaughn

        You saw the telltale signs by the lips, too?

    • formerlyAnon

      The dress is lovely, saved from tedium by the asymmetry. The fact that the hair is as formal/elegant as the dress adds a great deal to the overall impression.

    • marlie

      I’m not really in love with the dress… there’s nothing wrong with it, but it just didn’t do it for me. HOWEVER, she looks lovely from the neck up; her hair is very pretty, and her makeup is pretty too, but a teensy bit too understated. And I’ll take the earrings, please and thank you.

    • Mariah J

      She could not WAIT to lose that Skyler White weight, could she? 5 pounds away from scary.

    • Cheryl

      Stunning – straight up glamour! She has a real star quality that elevates this dress from the way it looked on the model.

    • quiltrx

      The gown is much prettier here than in other pictures I saw previously–I like it. I kind of miss the sash, though.

    • giddypony

      Perfection! I thought the skirt was pink though.

    • ItsDicey

      Such a gorgeous look for her. Love it!

    • GTrain

      She looks amazing! Very glamorous indeed.

    • Kristobel

      I wish she had kept the belt, but otherwise, she looks fantastic! She deserved that Emmy.

      Did anyone else think she looked so much like Meg Ryan in thumbnail?

      I’m also only just now watching Season 4 of BB and can I say, JESUS, did her weight change throughout. She’s really worked hard to get where she is now.

    • pippitypup

      The assymetrical lace bodice gives an impression of movement even when she is still. Well done.

    • berlinmama

      LOOOVVVE!

    • Alana

      Thanks for that link. I just finished watching the series, so having put my internet blinders on for all things “Breaking Bad” related, I had not known this had happened. I am so glad she won–and now doubly so.

    • marlie

      I’ll take the earrings. The rest, she can keep.

    • marlie

      I’ve never watched Breaking Bad, but I’ve been following the degree of internet hatred for her character (and by extension, HER), and it’s astounding. From what I understand, the minute the writers started writing her as a strong character with her own agenda (as opposed to just “the wife”), people started to hate on her. So in that respect, I think this was the perfect opportunity so say “bite me” to the haters (NOT “critics,” since it doesn’t seem as though there’s much critical thought involved with the majority of them).

    • fursa_saida

      Removing the belt helps it seem less bridal, I think.

    • Dorothy & Michael n/a

      I have to try to work the word ‘syncopation’ into my vocabulary more often. Well done!

    • Alexander Peterhans

      That’s not entirely fair. As someone who has watched the series, I’d say it took the writers a long time to actually give her her own agenda (halfway season 4, I’d estimate). Before that she seemed to written as a typical ‘wife of the male brooding anti hero’, which is a problem a lot of these anti hero dramas seem to have (see also: Betty Draper, Margaret Thompson) – she seemed to mostly exist as an obstacle to be overcome, only really existing in reference to the main character.

      I did dislike the character until later on in the series, when the writers finally seemed to get a grip on her., and then she became of one of the characters I like most. This is all completely beside the point of Anna Gunns performance, btw, she’s always been great.

      (And it is ofcourse certainly true that there is a large group of typical internet creeps that hates her purely for being a woman.)

    • marlie

      That was sort of what I was trying to say… seems like the nastiness that has come out about her character/her in the last year or two is *because* the writers started giving her her own agenda where she sometimes challenged Walter’s character. Seems like some fans (the internet creeps, largely) are practically hero-worshipping Walter, and by extension vilifying Skyler.

      There was an op-ed that Anna Gunn wrote for the NYT on 8/23 that explains it far better than I could. I’ll try to link to it…
