“Parks and Recreation” actress Amy Poehler attends the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held in the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.
In retrospect, we probably should have reconsidered how we ordered these posts, because it seems like we saved all the looks we don’t like for Day Two of our Emmy coverage. Sorry so nasty, darlings. We’ll put up something we unreservedly love at some point.
As for THIS…
Oh, GIRL. What the hell happened to you? You were on such a style upswing these past few years! You’d really come into your own and it seemed like you or someone you were paying figured out what works best for you in red carpet situations. But this looks like a picture from eight years ago, when you were a red carpet disaster on the regular. This is the look of someone who’s never even met a stylist.
And we can’t even say she’s not trying. That’s a high-end designer gown and a metric shit-tonne of borrowed jewelry. It’s just that the dress really doesn’t work for her at all (Oh, AMY. How did you let yourself get talked into those cut-outs?) and that many stacked bracelets are for gals with much longer arms. Besides, we hate how symmetrical they are. She appears to have two of each bracelet, one on each arm. That’s a bit much.
But the worst part is the hair. We hate to be so dogmatic about it, but ladies? Flicking your hair behind your ears is for when you’re
1) Doing dishes or writing or some other task with your head bent down, or
2) When you’re talking to someone and want to make a devastatingly cute gesture while doing so.
It is NOT to be done with a gown at an event where pictures are being taken. We have spoken. Harrumph.
