Television Academy’s Performers Peer Group Celebration Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on August 23, 2017

Oh, a Peer Group Celebration, is it? Goodness, celebrities never cease to amaze us with their ability to find new ways to pat themselves on the back. Well, ladystars, we’re not your peers, but we’re gonna judge you anyway.

But we’ll be nice because we honestly have no preconceptions about how one is supposed to dress for a Peer Group Celebration. Honestly, it sounds like a birthday party for an android.

Anyway:

 

Alison Wright

Simple and unprepossessing. Which means it’s terrible as a method of self-promotion. There’s nothing terribly wrong with the look, but like so much of what we’ve seen her in public, it’s blandly generic and does little for her. Sweetie, you need some Miu Miu in your life.

 

Allison Janney

Like so much of Miss Allison’s less formal red carpet-wear, this is pure “gets the job done.” It’s a basic and simple style made just photogenic enough by the color and the shoes. Well done, if perhaps not excitingly done.

 

 

Chrissy Metz

She seems to be getting just a teeny bit better with each successive public appearance. We still don’t think flowy lace dresses are where it’s at for her, but there’s nothing objectionable about the look. And she looks more polished here than she usually does.

 

 

Kathryn Hahn in Monique Lhuillier

Another one who seems to slowly be learning that a little pizazz and personality do a lot for a red carpet look. Not that she’s setting us on fire here. This is certainly not a dress we haven’t seen before. But the colors and pattern look good on her (she used to default to some pretty dreary blacks and browns) and the pink pumps are fun. Nothing’s particularly on trend, but she’s not that girl.

 

 

Meg Donnelly

Meh. Totally forgettable. A big honkin’ pendant would’ve done a lot of good here.

 

 

Susan Kelechi Watson in Tadashi Shoji

Love the print and basic style, which has a 1930s feel to it, but that trim around the bust makes no sort of sense to us at all. It’s a shame, because with a more conventional bust, this probably could’ve looked amazing on her.
