Variety and Women in Film Emmy Nominee Celebration Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on August 25, 2014

Darlings, after the neon-colored screamfest known as the VMAs red carpet, we’re ready for a little class, style, and low-key chic. A “Women in Film” celebration should just about do the trick right now. A little style amuse-bouche, if you will.

Hit it, ladies.


Lea Michele in Narciso Rodriguez

Our bouches. They are not amused.

This is ridiculously random and looks like nothing so much as a stack of samples in a fabric store.


Kiernan Shipka in Carven
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (2)

 GORGEOUS. What a pretty little dress. And we love the elegance of the styling.



Laverne Cox in Ports 1961
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (3)

 This would look so much better with a halter neckline, we think. Square-shouldered gals should not fear the halter.

Even so, this is really pretty and feminine. One of the most elegant things we’ve ever seen her in.



Lizzy Caplan in Wes Gordon
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (4)

 We’re not sure about the shoes, but the rest of it works really well. She can get away with a crop top on the RC and have it look somehow appropriate. Maybe it’s the demure quality of the skirt.



Christina Hendricks 
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (5)

 And speaking of demure… we really don’t love it when she goes this “gothy schoolmarm” route. It’s a look she clearly likes, but we never thought it did anything for her.



Darby Stanchfield in Pamella, Pamella Roland
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (6)




Danielle Brooks
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (7)

Love the idea of the short hair, but it’s looking a little ragged. Love the dress too, but she lost us at the pointy shoulders.


Kerry Washington in Michael Kors
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (8)

 Pretty and simple. Nothing wrong with that.



Michelle Dockery in Elie Saab
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (9)

It’s a shame about the hair. While this isn’t exactly head-turning, it’s classically chic and it suits her well.



Samira Wiley 
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (10)

 LOVE. She looks adorable. We’d have wanted a rethink on the makeup and a pair of noticeable earrings, however.


Sarah Paulson in Monique Lhuillier
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (11)

 She’s slowly turning into the post “Baby Jane” version of Bette Davis.



Lena Dunham 
Variety-Wome-In-Film-Emmy-Nominee-Celebration-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO-TLO (12)

 Lena go pee-pee onna wed cawpet.

Please review our Community Guidelines before posting a comment. Thank you!

  • Is Lena Dunham wearing a wig, or is that something she’s done to her real hair?

    • Darcy H

      Thank you for asking the question that desperately needed to be asked.

    • justineyy

      It’s real! She posted about it when she got it cut and…er, “styled.”

      • SugarSnap108

        Was it a post seeking the capture of whoever did that to her?

      • MilaXX

        That’s what hanging around Sia will do for you.

    • Sobaika


    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I’m not sure that’s the right shade of blonde for Lena Dunham. Golden blonde highlights with her natural color would be more flattering, I think.

    • Kent Roby

      I think that Tyra punked her by giving her “the Saleisha”.

  • Verascity

    Ugh, Samira Wiley is so devastatingly attractive to me. I saw her in that dress and my stomach flipped.

    This is easily the best I’ve seen Laverne look, but more and more do I wish she’d change her hair.

    • Darcy H

      I think the problem is that the better her dress/make-up/shoe game becomes, the more the hair sticks out as being “eh”.

      • JimMcC

        I don’t mind her hair. I think it really makes her features pop. The makeup does seem to be working against that here, though. I admit I don’t know a lot about makeup, but…she needs something brighter around the eyes, no? I mean…whatever. The dress is great, and that smile is killer.

        • Darcy H

          That smile makes up for almost anything!

  • Paigealicious

    Are Christina Hendricks and Kiernan Shipka wearing the same shoes?

    • stellavision

      Good eye!

    • MK03

      Betcha they planned it.

    • macaroni

      I noticed that, too! I assumed they planned it and thought it was cute. 🙂

  • stellavision

    Dear Samira Wiley, thank you for wearing color. Love, me.

    • Yes, but it had to be one of those blurry patterns…

      • mapmakerscolors

        I need those blurry patterns to die.

        • Nothing makes my eye twitch like the blurry patterns.

  • Nikko Viquiera

    Kiernan Shipka never fails to impress. She’s always so classy and fierce. “Bow down bitches..” was playing in my head when I saw her. No wonder even Suri loves her! 🙂 I want to send this photo to all those celebrity tweens with a note: This is your peg!

    • FuhUgh

      OK, now mentally switch her outfit with Kerry Washington’s. They still both look great and on point, don’t they. It’s like Emmy paperdolls.

    • mlle

      Another Suri’s Burn Book reader!

    • Herr Meier

      who is her stylist? can’t find info. A+ job

      • Jeremiah Capacillo

        I read in a Teen Vogue interview that she doesn’t use a stylist! She just really loves fashion apparently.

        • MoHub

          And has extraordinary taste.

        • Herr Meier

          don’t believe this one bit. she is no doubt have fashion people helping her.

          found it on vogue site

          We asked stylist Emily Barnes, and fashion directors Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson, both of Rachel Zoe Studio, to give us a behind-the-scenes look at their process when dressing actresses Anna Chlumsky, Kiernan Shipka, and Sofia Vergara

          We have worked with Kiernan for over three years and her fittings are an office favorite! We’d equate it to playing dress up with your coolest 14 year old friend. That is if your coolest 14 year old friend had frocks from Chanel and Valentino to play dress up in.

    • livesarah

      Usually I feel like the worship for her is a bit overdone, although she has a great proportion of hits to misses, outfit-wise. However, she looks flawless here, right down to her hair, which usually looks pretty awful. A WERQ?

    • holla

      Kiernan Shipka is going to join the Council of Fierce at the rate she’s going.

  • Sarah

    Lena Dunham: I revoke your Adult Woman Card.

    Stand up STRAIGHT, get some support garments, and damn your pigeon toes.

    • SayWhaaatNow

      Kiernan looks more like an adult than she does. I had to look up her age and remind myself that she is just 14.

      • Sarah

        Excellent point. It’s shameful as heck.

      • Yeah, but I don’t see anything inappropriate in her appearance here.

        • SayWhaaatNow

          Oh, I don’t think either of them look inappropriate. Kiernan’s style just has this air and sophistication about her that makes her seem more mature than Lena.

          • largishbearishAtlish

            I suspect Kiernan might have something else Lena is lacking…it’s called “class”.

      • random_poster

        Normally, I think a lot of that comes from her poise. In this case, I think her hair has a lot to do with it. It is lovely on her, but I don’t know any 14-year-olds who wear their hair like that.

    • Someone needs to go grab Lena and throw on her one of those shoulder straighteners that horse riders wear, as well as a good bra. Those two things would probably fix most of the issues we see with her.

      • Sarah

        Well, I see your point, but she seems to be fond of standing with her toes pointed at each other, so we need leg braces, too. And perhaps a haircut and some clothes that don’t make her look like “I am Eloise. I am six. I am a city child. I live at the Plaza.”

        • I just want to think that straightening her shoulders would make her feel more like an adult, and so the feet would follow.

        • Imasewsure

          I think you have just saved millions of dollars worth of psychoanalysis for our dear Lena… she has Eloise Syndrome… hopefully there is a pill for that…

          • Sarah

            Well, I haven’t seen her show, but being nekkid and having intercourses on it seem to have not cured her of it, so I suspect it’s chronic.


          • bitchybitchybitchy

            A pill, stern talking to or a bitchslap

          • Imasewsure

            Oh don’t give the Bitter Kittens the option of a good bitchslap… you know we are going to have to go there!!

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I’m weak that way!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      That twee pose weally, weally needs to be wetiwed.

    • LP

      The empire waist is not flattering on her (or many people who aren’t pregnant). I don’t know why she insists upon wearing it so often.

  • Valeria Josy Rivera

    That Lena Dunham caption almost had me spitting water all over my keyboard and monitor. Still trying to not laugh out loud at work.

  • Mothra

    Lea Michele is wearing a swimsuit with a paraeo over it. Laverne Cox is wearing a funereal Little House on the Prairie number. In fact, they all look like they’re going to a memorial service. Except Lea, of course. She’s going to the pool at the Marriott. Oh and Lena, who is … I don’t even know.

    • Sarah

      Attending her BFF’s ninth birthday party?

    • 3boysful

      I had the same tankini with sarong thought re Lea. And Danielle Brooks’ dress is scarily like the wicked witch (or whatever she was) in the Little Mermaid.

      • demidaemon

        That would be Ursula. And yes, she does resemble her in this outfit, especially with that hair.

      • MoHub

        But I bet Danielle had Daniel Esquivel salivating.

  • Le_Sigh

    Snerked my peppermint tea through my nose at Lena. Though your commentary (and the burning tea) was way more refreshing than whatever is going on…her.

    • Alyssa

      Probably good for your sinuses! 😉

  • Dangerfield5

    Lea Michele’s bosom looks unhappy.

  • I can’t see Samira’s smile without bursting into a grin myself. So joyous! And I love her dress, too.

    Kiernan looks FABULOUS!

  • deelup

    Lena is bringing back bad fashion memories of the 1990s.

  • Violentcello

    I don’t know why I love Lizzy Caplan’s outfit so much, but I do. I think it’s her abs. Makes me happy I’m going to barre tonight. Must not wimp out on the core blasts.

    • Gatto Nero

      It really suits her. The crop top works because the proportions are perfect; the length of the skirt balances out the bare skin, and the fabric looks luxe.
      (Plus the abs.)

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I could work up an irrational hatred for Lizzy’s abs, but why bother? She has them, and the crop top shows them off, and it’s working with that skirt.

  • ErmengardeGreen

    Kiernan Shipka is serving up circa-“Big” Elizabeth Perkins realness, and I love it.


    • kerryev

      So great!

  • Wink

    Kiernan Shipka looks great! And it’s so refreshing to see Laverne Cox in a different silhouette.

  • BendinIntheWind

    My eyes might deceive me, but it looks like Kiernan and Christina are wearing THE SAME SHOES. I’m imagining them picking them out together on purpose.

    • Christine1900

      I had the same thoughts.

  • deathandthestrawberry

    Lena Dunham bugs me so hard. The slouchy, scabby, knocked-kneed posing she is doing in that photo is making me stubby. UGH!

  • JulieTy

    Lea Michele looks like she’s wearing a swimsuit and a sarong.

  • Alyssa

    Kiernan is putting everyone else to shame on this carpet!

  • Cloveradams

    It’s hard not to want the WIF next to Dunham to read WTF. Leave it to her to (a) pick a hair color that doesn’t suit her skin tone in the slightest, and (b) accentuate the bad choice with overwrought eye makeup.

  • queeniethebold

    Lena Dunham is unbearable. If it were just one thing, perhaps she wouldn’t be so all-encompassingly insufferable. But the relentlessly bad posture. The insistently pigeon-toed stance. The unrelentingly bad hair. The epically bad choices, always, in color and style of her frocks. It’s just too much.

    Kiernan Shipka is one class act. So lovely.

  • Jennifer Bober

    I know I’ve asked this before, but does Lena Dunham own a full length mirror? Seriously, she can’t if she keeps going out in these horrific on her silhouettes. Otherwise, she’s got some severe body dysmorphia going on.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      She might be deliberately picking these silhouettes to demonstrate that she doesn’t care, but I cannot imagine why a successful young woman wouldn’t want to avail herself of a stylist or personal shopper who could help her present herself in a more flattering way.

      • mlle

        Some of it may just be the effects of 20something artsy Brooklyn. There are a lot of unflattering outfits in that scene. It was bizarre, yesterday, to watch (based on the crowd around me) as my outfit went from okay for walking the dog to sloppy to chic over the course of a train ride from my apartment in Harlem to my sister’s studio in Greenpoint.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Thanks for the insight-I hadn’t considered that being a possible factor in Dunham’s clothing choices.

  • Elle E Dee

    The only thing I can ever think when I see the type of shoes Lizzy Caplan is wearing is “foot tacos”.

  • Just Me

    Time for some tough love: Lena needs an intervention. I would love Iman and Helen to swoop in like fierce fairy godmothers of style, but as they are too busy being fabulous to come down from on high for such a simple problem, I will take Clint and Stacy to come in, thrust aside this baby doll- whatever-happened-to-Baby-Jane thing she has going and get her some real clothes that will work on her body. And they need to dig out a heavy book, put it on her head and break her of the appalling habit of standing around like she is not sure she deserves to be there. Damn, woman! You’ve got your own show! You’re a multi-threat entertainment badass! Channel Tina Fey and own it!

  • Anna

    POISE BITCHES!!! With Professor Samira Wiley and Junior Professor Kiernan Shipka.

  • Terri Terri

    Oh dear, Danielle Brooks deserves better.

  • tpalgal

    I agree, Uncles – Laverne’s dress would be that much better as a halter dress. And while we’re redesigning, let’s lose the 12″ of black flounce at the bottom that is cutting off her gorgeous statuesqueness.

  • Tanya Wade

    More toddler fashion, care of Lena Dunham. Danielle Brooks’body is set to “Fierce.” Lose the shoulders and it would be perfect.

  • SugarSnap108

    The bodice on Laverne’s dress is not flattering, but I love that she’s mixing up her style with some soft, flow-y looks.

    Kiernan continues to show the over-18 crowd how it’s done.

    Lena and Sarah should just stay home at this point.

  • Pterodactyl111

    Did it say to wear black on the invitation? It’s AUGUST, people.

  • barbarasingleterry

    Christina Hendricks looks like a picture of my Great-Aunts (all sisters and very stylish) circa 1945 – 1949 down to the exact placement of her feet and the length of her dress. Not so good…..

  • MilaXX

    It’s really a shame that Lena has no concept of what works on her body. She could look so much better than this. I wish someone would throw a few designer frock Samira’s way. She has the figure for them. It’s nice to see Laverne moving away from the body cone dresses and more into fashion. I agree a halter would have worked or just open up the neckline on this dress. Love Michelle’s lady pants.

    • KinoEye

      I don’t know how tall she is, but I’ve often thought Samira could be a fantastic model, even if it’s just editorial work. She absolutely has the build, and amazing bone structure. Fierce, a la Grace Jones or Alek Wek.

  • Vegas Girl

    Samira Wiley’s smile makes me smile!

  • alyce1213

    Kiernan wins again, from her more grown-up, but not inappropriately sexy, hairdo down to the beautiful shoes. She makes it all look so easy and natural — why do so many others flounder? I also love what’s on Samira, Kerry, Michelle. You set up Lena Dunham for a good last laugh, which I appreciate.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    For somebody who champions positive body image, Lena Dunham dresses and poses as somebody who doesn’t like their body. If she feels awkward in feminine or mature clothing, then there are plenty of other options to explore

    • Beardslee

      Well put. And isn’t it too bad that she doesn’t employ a stylist who is thoughtful and helpful and who has a sophisticated eye.

  • jilly_d

    I wish Lea’s dress had been made fully out of the purple print. Lizzy: OMG DAT WAIST. I’ve never seen anyone look more chic or fabulous in a jumpsuit as Michelle is looking in that one. #class

  • fitzg

    Is Christina Hendricks wearing velvet?

    Also, I think Darby Stanchfield’s dress suits her.

  • semirose

    I feel like Daniel Brooks’ dress needs to be in anything other than black. White or red or green or anything and she’d look amazing, shoulder points and all. Can I have a Samira Wiley of my own? How has Lena Dunham not figured out makeup yet? I think Lea Michele in particular needs to take lessons from Kiernan Shipka. It’s so obvious when their pics are next to each other.

    • mlle

      Seeing their 90s-inspired makeup just a scroll apart is what did it for me. Kiernan looks like she’s echoing looks from 1994. Lea looks like she just stepped off the set of Melrose Place in 1994.

  • OffToSeeHim

    Laverne Cox looks like she’s trying out for Little House on the Prairie. Big fail.

  • Imasewsure

    Big YES to Kiernan and Samira who both look fantastic from head to toe… a yes to the dress for Kerry but maybe no to everything and everyone else here… better than the VMAs for sure but….

  • Yoshio

    Lea – just out of the pool, tied on a sarong
    Keirnan – perfect, the square neck is flattering
    Lizzy – don’t agree that crop tops have a place on the RC especially with an outfit that looks like nothing so much as a pencil skirt/turtleneck combo favored by hot librarians
    CH – not even close to her best, inoffensive at least
    Darcy – skater costume gone wrong
    Danielle – I really like it but I have a well documented fondness for odd shoulder treatments this would have worked better if the placement had been more thoughtful
    Kerry – boring, boring
    Michelle – charming, inoffensive
    Samira – her dazzling smile makes me forget that print which looks like the creature from Predator
    Sarah Paulson – she scares me and that dress heightens my fear…
    Lena – i love purple and that’s the only positive I have for her

    • Clash D

      Danielle looks SCARY AS.

  • Frank_821

    Kieran looks up to expectation

    Lena looks up to expectation

    okay putting aside her annoyingly infantile posture and posing, I cannot believe Lena actually thought she looks good here. This could have been cute and stylish. The dress is actually pretty nice in terms of color, fabric texture and shape. It would have looked fine with her NATURAL HAIR COLOR instead of this bad dye job.

    Shoes don’t go and she really needed some real jewelry. a jazzier bracelet or a necklace. SOMETHING that doesn’t fail to register to the human eye

    • mlle

      Lena needs to get her money back from the salon that did that to her head so she can buy herself a big, sparkly, multicoloured cuff and a pair of shoes that fit and that she can stand like a grown-up in. She also needs a new stylist and perhaps the good sense to know that people whose aesthetic is “I give a limit quantity of fucks about upkeep and presentation” should not go platinum blonde.

  • lunchcoma

    I’m liking the soft and flowy look on Laverne. This isn’t perfect, but I’d like to see her try more dresses along the lines of this.

    Christina Hendricks has a boob window. That’s never a good thing, and it’s especially bad when you know everyone will be looking at your boobs.

    • MoHub

      I wondered whether I was the only one with an issue with Hendricks’ boob window. And a screen window at that. The view of the babyheads through the black mesh is more disturbing than if they were uncovered.

  • MK03

    Whoever is dressing/styling Kiernan deserves a gold medal.

  • greymain

    would it kill Kerry Washington to put some color on that face????

  • nannypoo

    Kiernan Shipka is always the best-dressed and most dignified person on the red carpet. If she goes nuts when she gets older like so many of the young celebrities do it will break my heart.

  • Freynika

    I’m just happy to see Lena Dunham wearing straps.
    Why have all the ladycelebs eschewed jewelry?

  • Samira Wiley’s dress is giving me Tinkerbell but I don’t hate it. Instead, I really want there to be a reimagining of Peter Pan that’s all about Tinkerbell, her backstory and perspective (and none of this disneyfied/Tim Burton crap).

  • GemFemme

    Loved the description of Lena Dunham!
    Sarah Paulson has a forehead the size of a Buick, which is only emphasized by that hairstyle.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    whoever the second one is, is pure perfection. Stylists in training should carry that picture of what it SHOULD be. wow. (gee, I might even have to google her now)

    • marlie

      She’s the daughter on Mad Men. Look at her archives here… it’s a lesson in how to dress a teenager in stylish AND age-appropriate clothing.

  • marlie

    My favorites: Kiernan Shipka, Darby Stanchfield, Michelle Dockery, Kerry Washington. I’d like Laverne’s dress better if it was a different color. Samira Wiley wins for best smile (even though I don’t like her dress).

    And… this isn’t the worst thing that Lena Dunham has worn. So there’s that.

  • Sherilyne Cox

    Oh, Uncles…..Laverne’s frock reminds me of one of my mom’s “fancy” nightgowns back in the 60’s. Not quite Fredericks of Hollywood, more like Blair fashions.

  • Chattygal

    So Lena Dunham went to her hair stylist and said, “Give me the Elroy Jetson”?

    • Or possibly the He-Man.

  • papillon

    That shade of blonde does nothing for Lena. I like Kiernan’s hair.
    Sarah Paulson’s dress is quite pretty but better suited to someone younger than her.
    Lol, Lea’s outfit is the epitome of frankendress.
    Thee are a lot of cute looks here – Kerry’s, Michelle’s, Lizzy’s and Kiernan’s, namely.

  • Darby’s dress looks like those zig zaggy floaters I get at the beginning of a migraine that turn to blind spots as the pain starts to pound through my eyeballs. As for Laverne, she looks absolutely gorgeous. I love the soft elegant look on her. Keirnan is perfection for days (but is she wearing the same shoes as Christina Hendricks?) . Lea’s dress is bi-polar.

  • Clash D

    Kiernan looks like a mini-Scarlet Johansen in that dress and styling. Meanwhile, Lena is channelling Britney.

  • Little_Olive

    Daniella Brooks= Ursula
    I can’t unsee it.

  • demidaemon

    I don’t know. Danielle doesn’t look like herself. In fact, she kind of looks like Latrice Royale’s drag daughter, and not in a good way. 🙁

    Lena Dunham: whatever.

  • PestoPhile

    I unloaded in my girlfriend again last night and she’s forced to have a morning after pull, my question to all you old saggy bags that read this awful blog is “what if the child is born?, will it be a rètàrd or something”? Thanks slûts. ….

  • Glammie

    What’s with all the pigeon-toed posing?

    If Kiernan Shipka gives up acting, she has a career as a stylist. She clearly has an eye. Interesting to see her as her natural brunette self.

    Lena Dunham loves getting it wrong. She doesn’t have the easiest proportions, but they’re not impossible either. Lena, go study your Vogue lay-out or prostrate yourself in front of Grace Coddington and beg her for assistance. Or at least consult Kiernan, but enough of this.

    Of course Samira Wiley looks adorable. She looks adorable in prison khaki. She is adorable. It’s just one of those things.

  • Sophie

    I want Michelle Dockery’s clothes. If only the top.
    Not in love with Laverne Cox’s dress, what with the ruffle on the bottom and the way the black fabric is bunching in between her breasts. Love her clutch though.

  • NBG

    Kiernan Shipka for the win. It’s just getting scary to see how often she just nails it.

    Laverne Cox is the runner up. Lady Mary, the runner up place could have been yours. Your suit is awesome but you should have been nicer to your hairstylist. He/she screwed you on this one.

  • KinoEye

    Kiernan, Laverne and Samira are my everything. I’m always so confused by Sarah Paulson. She’s lovely, and I’ve seen her dressed and styled beautifully before. But always, ALWAYS with the batshit getups for public appearances. Why, dear?

    Lizzy Caplan has impressive abs.

  • Dreamwr8tr

    I like that dress on Lena but the posing bugs and I’m not a fan of her dye job.

  • LibKat

    Lea Michelle – Just out of the pool and figured her fancy sarong would work for the night. She is wrong.
    Kiernan Shipka – Perfect, if a bit too mature for one so young.
    Laverne Cox – Dingy drapes. She should kick the ass of whoever is responsible. That face deserves better.
    Lizzy Caplan – Hot secretary. Has Virginia worn that outfit to seduce Bill?
    Christina Hendricks – It makes me sad that someone so beautiful looks so bad so often.
    Darby Stanchfield – Dress has a nice shape but the material looks like the design your own print challenge.
    Danielle Brooks – Bad hair will not distract us from the dress fail. Go home and try again. Maybe talk to whoever styles Octavia Spencer.
    Kerry Washington – Nice dress. Go home and put on some makeup and then we’ll talk.
    Michelle Dockery – There’s this new American invention called hair spray. I’m sure it will get over to England soon.
    Samira Wiley – Agree with the uncles. Stronger lip and better earrings and it’s a WERQ,
    Sarah Paulson – Being out doesn’t mean you can’t look pretty anymore. Go talk to whoever styled you for Studio 60.
    Lean Dunham – Dress is pretty good (for you). Since you are wearing straps you might want to investigate these things called bras. They lift those puppies up off your chest and then your shoulders don’t have to slump from the weight. Also if you can’t make it down the red carpet without having to pee, think about Depends.

  • Ashleigh

    Lena looks 100000000000000 times better here, except, as you hysterically pointed out, the way she’s standing.

    Lea looks like a pareo over a bathing suit. Except, as if!, she’d ever wear a 1-piece suit. Lena’s dress could actually work if she wore a bra and stood like an adult.
