2017 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on September 19, 2017

Time to wrap this rascal up, wouldn’t you say, darlings? We’ve still got a ton of pre- and post-Emmys party looks to get to, so don’t you worry your pretty little heads. We may be saying goodbye to the main event, but the Emmys will live on in our hearts forever. Or at least until we’re done wringing every post out of them that we can.

Onward!

 

Alexis Bledel in Armani Privé

Simple, elegant and understated. We’d have rec’d something with a bit more oomph, but we suspect that’s not her way at all.

 

 

Alison Wright in Maria Lucia Hohan

The straps are odd and the color really doesn’t flatter her. Plus it kind of shortens her waist.

 

 

Allison Janney in Tony Ward Couture

That’s too much illusion netting across the bust, but the rest of it is lovely.

 

 

Aziz Ansari in Salvatore Ferragamo

No arguments here, but he looks like he’s about to tip over.

 

 

Chrissy Metz in Lela Rose

Fabulous color and neckline. She clearly prefers these lacy dresses with floaty sleeves, and while we remain unconvinced that they’re the best choice for her, this is probably the best one she’s ever worn. Not so sure about the pearl beading, though.

 

 

Gugu Mbatha-Raw in BOSS

Just stunning. And that color is nearly impossible to pull off.

 

 

Joel Kinnaman in Ralph Lauren

Boy, that’s not your hair. Too much forehead. Great from the neck down, though.

 

 

Justin Hartley in Valentino

This is going to sound incredibly back-handed and there’s no real way for us to avoid that (except keeping our mouths shut and you KNOW that’s not an option) but he makes “generic blond hunk” look hotter and more interesting than most men of that type. We really appreciate how quietly committed to impeccable style he’s become. He could be resting on pretty for the next decade but he’s putting the work in. Respect.

 

 

Kate McKinnon in Narciso Rodriguez

Geez. We really want to, because we love her, but we can’t. This is just an okay dress at best.

 

 

Kiernan Shipka in Miu Miu

Absolutely perfect. And this is coming from two queens who hate garments that are too close to the wearer’s skin tone. But the soft neutral really works for the style and the trim (which is underplayed for a Miu Miu) bumps it up to princess-lite. She looks beautiful and sophisticated. And now she needs to mentor Millie Bobby Brown.

 

 

Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani

They’re a really cute couple. We usually hate chokers, but she’s got the look for it. Something about the bangs make it work. The dress is a gorgeous color but we kind of want to move the shoulders up. He looks pretty much perfect.

 

Mandy Moore in Carolina Herrera

It’s a little too Dr. Seuss for us, but we respect her for finding a way to indulge her taste for style oddness while still looking appropriately chic for the occasion.

 

 

Matt Bomer in Giorgio Armani

No problems here.

 

 

Milo Ventimiglia in Ralph Lauren

DID ANYONE SEE HIS RED CARPET INTERVIEW WITH GIULIANA?  Because WOW. It’s a good thing he has a career where someone writes his words for him. And also that he’s pretty. That’s all we’ll say about that.

Style-wise, this all works fine.

 

 

Rashida Jones in J. Mendel

Love every single thing about this except … wait for it … the cutout. It doesn’t ruin the design, but like so many of them lately, it distracts from the better parts of it. And it turns her bust angular.

 

 

Sofia Vergara in Mark Zunino

Whatever.

 

 

Sterling K. Brown (in Valentino) and Ryan Michelle Bathe

What a stunning couple.

 

 

Yara Shahidi in Prada

Another skin-toned dress that tends to work more than we would have expected. Once again, the sparkle really helps. Still, the placement of the sequins is a little weird.

 

 

Zoë Kravitz in Dior

We don’t love this as much as we probably should, mainly because the one trend on the Emmys red carpet this year that we disliked the most was the overuse of feathers. This is pretty and dramatic, but it just happens to have come off a little like one in a line of looks using the same or similar elements.
