2014 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on August 25, 2014

And last but not least, before we head straight into live-tweeting the Emmys red carpet (like, right this second), one final chance for the attention-deprived to grab some more attention.

Uzo Aduba

Love everything but the top knot.

Super-cute dress, but the styling really lets it down.



Ashley Madekwe in Wes Gordon

 Honestly, we don’t know what the hell she was thinking. She looks like she’s naked, with a creeping neon fungus growing on her.

Straight outta “Taxi Driver.”

YELLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!! RAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Our eyelidss will never stop twitching. Those shoes are hideous.

Wow, this is actually … acceptable. Underwhelming, but acceptable.



Bellamy Young in Pamella Roland

Generic, Part II.

Love the colors and the shape, but we’re not sure she’s pulling off that bustline well.

    After Ariel Winter’s ordeal with her mother, I’m just glad to see her in something that’s age appropriate and that it looks like she enjoys again.

    Joey King doesn’t even look like she’s at the same event as the rest of these women, and Ashley Madekwe’s fungal dress belongs in a horror movie, not on a red carpet.

    • MaryMcClelland

      Who is Joey King? Ugh – what is she wearing? So sad.

      • Anna

        Holy hell, Joey King is only 15 years old! She played Ramona in Romanoa & Beezus! “Taxi Driver” is so right. Ugh, I need to go to bed…

        Edit: Didn’t realize Jen had pointed out Joey’s age already. Apologies for repetition. But yeah….15…shit.

    • demidaemon

      It hurts me to say this, but it looks like Joey wandered into this event out of the Red Light District. NOT GOOD.

      • smayper

        Taking “pole dancing” in TLO speak into ACTUAL pole dancing territory.

        • demidaemon

          That’s the least of her skills list, going off of this look.

    • DesertDweller79

      I looked at Joey King’s and said, “Honey, the VMA’s are that way.”

  • smh4748

    Some women pull off short hair well, but Kaley Cuoco is not one of them. Of course, that particular styling choice on short hair wouldn’t work on anyone, so she’s double-doomed here.

    • Anplica Fiore

      She looks to be about 55 here. That hair cut (& that neckline) aged her DRAMATICALLY!

    • Little_Olive

      But NO ONE pulls off that lover lid (reverse-wing?) eyeliner. Oof.

  • Jen

    I had to google it, but Joey king was born in 1999. Where are your parents??

    • random_poster

      She played Ramona Quimby. I am scandalized.

      • Vegas Girl

        I would never have recognized her without your comment! That gives me the sads.

      • kittentoes

        No, Ramona, no!

    • JasmineAM

      good lord i was born in 1991 and that made me feel soooo old.

      • AthenaJ

        Oh lord I was born in 1982… I guess that makes me the Pyramids.

  • fananafanafophalec

    Really? that neon thing on Anna Chlumsky is “super-cute”? gay uncles, I feel so betrayed. I don’t know how I can trust again

    • fananafanafophalec

      for god’s sake I can sort of see accepting the pink dress (though I think the bust is tragically unflattering) but how on earth did they justify sewing a floofy dishrag onto the damn thing

      • Trent

        …And is the neon green towel fully sewn onto the dress or does it just flap up and down when she walks? Either way that frock is both under and over-designed, IMO. Kaley’s dress, with the wonky bustline, isn’t much better. Not a good showing for Christian…

    • Mr. J.

      Feeling your pain.

    • butterflysunita

      I think they have a soft spot for dear Christian–though that’s definitely not one of his better designs.

    • leahpapa

      Also confused by the hate for the shoes (which I also don’t like), because Kiernan Shipka is wearing almost the same ones at the BAFTA tea party and it’s “perfection”?

      • I don’t think they were complimenting Kiernan’s shoes, there — just the rest of her perfection caused them to forget the shoes.

      • Imasewsure

        Actually the shoes were perfect for that particular dress… but they should still die a thousand times (one for each time we have been forced to look at them!).

    • Jacob Bowen

      She looks like the dinosaur from our imagination…If you turned the green to the front, stuffed it, and gave her the head, she would be BARNEY!

    • DesertDweller79

      Well, I do really like the neon pink color on her. Not sure about the rest of the dress though. Christian’s pieces on tonight’s Emmy red carpet were pretty great, though. Can’t win ’em all, you know.

  • Yoshio

    That might be a personal best for Jennifer Morrison – not a high bar but still so much better than usual.

    • carrie

      BUT THOSE SHOES! Agree on everything else!

      • Yoshio

        Given that we’ve been slogging through a seemingly never ending series of bad shoes for months now, I’ve given up commenting on them unless they are particularly heinous…lol!

    • demidaemon

      It is. The bar is set tragically low and probably will never be reached again.

    • Rhonda Shore

      THat dress begged for a marvelous mouth. LIPSTICK dammit!

  • Kitten Mittons

    UZO FTW!

    Anna Chlumsky’s makeup looks nice.

    Jennifer Morrison doesn’t look crazy.

    The end.

    • Sarah

      I like Jennifer’s dress. Her shoes are mehhhh.

      • Kitten Mittons

        Yes, I consider that a win for her.

        • Lori

          Exactly. I think this is the best she’s ever looked. Boring shoes are much less of a problem than her usual habit of looking like she got dressed during a bout of hysterical blindness.

          • Imasewsure

            And her hair and makeup look nice… no cray cray in sight except for the boring shoes…

    • SugarSnap108

      “Jennifer Morrison doesn’t look crazy” was my exact reaction when I scrolled down. “Not crazy” has to be a personal best for her.

  • Sherilyne Cox

    Is Joey King wearing Dr. Scholles with those hideous hot pants? Oh baby, baby it’s a wild world.

    • smayper

      Points for the Cat Stevens reference!!

  • MilaXX

    Joey King looks like she thought she was at the VMAs. Greer Graham was doing okay until she put those hiddy shoes on. Jennifer Morrison looks kinda bland, but it’s a huge step up from her usual RC appearances.

  • jif

    Fire your make-up people, Kaley. If it’s the one thing you do this week…

    • kerryev

      I don’t think I have once understood her red carpet/event makeup. It’s a Huh?, every time.

      • BLauDGaspode

        I agree. I’ve never looked at her face on the RC and thought, “They nailed it. Perfect.” It’s always, “Uhhh… well, that’s some makeup you’ve got there.”

    • decormaven

      With the per-episode salary bump she just got, there’s money in her budget for a premiere stylist. Dear, you hit the million mark- time to elevate your look.

    • PinkyAndNoBrain

      Okay, so I have this Irrational Hate Response to Kaley whenever I see her. Is it the makeup that’s making her face look all pinched and weird? Because she always looks ridiculously arrogant and it makes me want to hit things, but I don’t know enough about makeup to know if that’s her fault or her stylist’s.

      Seriously, does she always look like she’s sucking on a lemon drop while a stick’s being shoved up her butt?

      • jif

        Hmmmm. She could be sucking on actual lemons the whole time. Digestion aid, good for the skin…

  • marlie

    My favorites: Uzo Aduba, and Jennifer Morrison (except I don’t like the shoes). Ashley Madekwe and Joey King win the WTF award this round.

    • carrie

      Love Uzo’s the best, wish her makeup was better (a visible lip color).

  • Sarah

    Mismatched yellows but matched lips (and full on clown makeup) plus clutch. Nay.

  • Man, you guys are machines today! Thanks!

  • PinkyK

    Joey King! Oh no… Anyone who told her this is OK should be flogged! It reeks of preppy girl going to a goth bar & trying SOO SOO SOOOO hard to fit in.

  • papillon

    I like Miss Uzo’s dress. I know Ashley considers herself stylish but I never like anything she’s wearing. Ever!
    Bellamy Young is such a pretty woman. That make-up on Kaley is terrible, terrible, terrible.

    • carrie

      Agree on Kaley’s makeup – it looks like the time I got stoned in college and then tried applying metallic eye shadow. It was so funny, I took pics, but NEVER WORE IT OUT IN PUBLIC.

  • alyce1213

    Uzo’s dress is very smart and chic. Joey King’s getup is scandalous — Taxi Driver is not a look girls should emulate.
    I really like the simplicity and elegance of Kaley Cuoco’s dress. It’s much nicer than what she usually wears, but her posture is not affirmative enough to work the bustline (chest out!). Makeup is awful.

  • Noah

    Jesus, what grownup let Joey King leave the house like that?

  • quiltrx

    I think it is time for the Bitter Kittens to RISE UP AS ONE and, once and for all, DESTROY THE NAKED SANDAL.
    All we need is a bunch of (manual) hedge clippers. We sneak into various RC venues around the country and we clip that strap on every blessed one of them. Ruined. You can never wear them again.
    Then we just have to find the warehouse…

    • DesertDweller79

      You know what is crazy? Last March I was attending a garden wedding. I had a beautiful white sheath dress with an abstract floral print on it. Every pair of white sandals I found were too heavy for the look. I started praying to find a pair of white naked sandals. Couldn’t find a pair anywhere. At least, anywhere that was within my price range. It drove me bonkers to come here and see the naked sandal everywhere. Is this a high end thing? Like, the naked sandal is somehow obscenely expensive?

      Sigh. Baffling.

    • Raspberry2012

      We could do that. Next Tuesday at 3 PM work for everyone?

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Jennifer Morrison’s dress, I like, but her hair… needs help.

    Hate the green apron on the pink and green Siriano. And uh-oh, don’t tell Heidi, but a PR winner has put Kaley Cuoco in the very green she declared off limits!

  • DollyMadisonWI

    After seeing the Emmy red carpet pics, I’m convinced that everyone got dressed in the dark or all the stylists in LA have gone blind. There was so much bad that I’ll have to come back tomorrow after I’ve recovered a bit. Man, stinky, stinky, stinky.

  • DollyMadisonWI

    Kaley Cuoco always looks like she was ridden hard and put away wet.

  • megohd

    The good news is … the illusion netting on Bellamy Young’s dress helped me figure out who she reminds me of. Nancy Kerrigan! #whyyyyyyyyy

  • demidaemon

    It’ sad when acceptable is a feat for a starlet. So very sad.

  • evave2

    So that three Christian Siriano’s (I kept count) in this Monday wrap up. I liked the first one and I like Anna Chlumsky’s more than Kaley Cuoco (her name always gives me the agida); I don’t know if Kaley just didn’t stand up straight or maybe she was worried about the bosom? Because the bosom does not fit her. But hey, Anna Chlumsky wore some pretty colors there.

    But I agree I hate the shoe, it is the end of the season and I hope that shoe gets buried.

  • PestoPhile

    Claire Danes is such a Fùcking whöre I hope she gets her Fùcking throat slit

  • PestoPhile

    The amount of blacks we hold as celebrities is disgusting and serving as the degradation of society. Blacks are animals which is evident from their behaviour in Ferguson over a shooting that was justified and quite frankly the way that police should deal with all blacks.

  • SRQkitten


    Yes, please! You know it’s pretty bad when the nude shoes pass unnoticed because of all the naked sandals on display. Did someone shoenap all other styles of high end shoes in LA recently?

  • RescueMe23

    Jesus! Who is Joey King and why did they allow her on the RC?

  • Sophie

    Love Uzo Aduba’s dress. It looks fantastic.

  • Sam Smith

    I don’t know who half these people are, I like the pink of Anna’s dress and I think her make-up is lovely.

  • Shorts????? To a pre-Emmy party?????

  • MarissaLG

    Mellie dresses so impeccably on Scandal, but Bellamy rarely gets it right on the RC. I can understand that she wouldn’t want to dress like a constantly–on-the-verge-of-breakdown First Lady, but she really should hire her stylist on that show for some freelance work.

  • Raspberry2012

    Ehhhh.. I’m underwhelmed by all of them, which is rare. There’s at least one or two good ones whenever you do a post of a “batch o’ dresses”, but this group needed to try harder.

  • Fred Vaughn

    You call Ariel and Bellamy generic, I’ll call them Tastefully Done (esp. Ariel – looks mature and better than some of what I’ve seen from the babies lately)

  • NBG

    What is with all this illusion mesh on the RC lately? Did someone break into US Figure Skating’s costume vault?

  • LibKat

    Uzo Aduba – Disagree about the top knot. It’s the pale and nude lip colors she needs to stay away from.
    Anna Chlumsky – Your dress is growing a fungus.
    Ashley Madekwe – You’re a beautiful woman. Why are you wearing a gunny sack and your Grandma’s doilies?
    Joey King – Smacked ass.
    Ariel Winter – Not bad. She is still learning to dress her curvier body. I hope she gets more confident.
    Greer Grammer – Also mismatched rose pinks (bag and lip.) So much eye twitching.
    Jennifer Morrison – Personal best for her? Which indicates how low the bar is set.
    Bellamy Young – Almost. If you skip the sheer and put fabric there instead, you would be able to wear a bra and fight the shlumpies you’ve got going on. And maybe the bodice would fit.
    Kaley Cuoco – The bodice is all wrong and the crazy eyes are scaring me.

  • stonecoldcuddlewhore

    I don’t get the Uzo love here. She looks like a lawyer or executive out for dinner with clients. She wore a blazer to the office during the day and just added a cute clutch and some lipstick for night.
    Burn the Herve Leger.
    Does Kaley Cuoco’s face normally rest like that or is she purposely making a half duck lip? I do like how green her eyes look in the picture.

  • amanda lynn

    I bought those awful shoes about 10 years ago for a wedding. I threw them away the night of the wedding, they were so uncomfortable.

  • Columbinia

    The endless repeat of THOSE SHOES gets pretty funny.
