2016 Emmys: Constance Zimmer in Monique Lhuillier

Posted on September 20, 2016

“Unreal” actress Constance Zimmer attends the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

 

In a way, it’s a shame she didn’t win her category. Partially because she’s fabulous in the role and partially because we wanted this dress to get more of a spotlight:

Now, we will stipulate up front that a pink lace dress can go OUTRAGEOUSLY cloying and twee at the drop of a hat. We will also stipulate that the matching pink clutch was not at all a good idea. And we will go one step further and stipulate that this exact dress could very easily come in for some bitching and whining on our parts if someone else – someone less suited to it – was wearing it.

But this was honestly one of our favorite looks of the night. Maybe it helps that the pink is used rather sparingly and on a stark white background, instead of something tea-stained and overly romanticized. It definitely helps that the shape and style are very simple, letting the pink lace carry all the visual interest. And it helps that she’s got a somewhat wry, sardonic quality that helps the dress tremendously. You put this on a Mariah Carey or even a Taylor Swift and we’d hate it with the passion of a white-hot sun. Probably. But you put it on someone with just the right attitude; someone sporting a severe Ramona Quimby haircut that tends to eradicate any chance of this look being too romanticized, and we love it. The right dress on the right lady at the right time.
