Emmy Awards 2017 Trend Watch: Ladies of the Night

Posted on September 18, 2017

Ooooh, SUCH an important and fresh new trend, you guys!

Okay, maybe “trend” isn’t the word here, since black dresses are classics in any situation and tend to be the go-to option for most ladystars, either because she can’t be bothered thinking about it or because she happens to look good in it. Then again, no one truly looks bad in black – especially when there’s lots of glitter and feathers involved.

Shall we, darlings?


Ann Dowd

An incredibly well-deserved win and outrageously charming and sweet acceptance speech have left us without any bitchery to spew at her outfit. She had a great night and we doubt very much there were a ton of high-end designers throwing free dresses at her beforehand. She’s fine. More than fine.



Emmy Rossum in Zac Posen

A classic look. There’s not much more to say than that; other than “She looks good.”



Gabrielle Union in Zuhair Murad

Sigh. Miss Gabrielle, we would love this so much more if the skirt was lined. Still, she looks gorgeous.



Jane Krakowski in Badgley Mischka

Here’s a shocker: We think that neckline actually works this time. The proportions (hers and the dress’s) are just right for it. Love the belt. The earrings are stunners.



Julie Bowen in Alberta Ferretti

We could do without all that foofaraw on the skirt, but she can pull off these starkly, simply chic looks very well. The cuff makes it.



Keri Russell (with Matthew Rhys) in J. Mendel

Too damn many feathers on this red carpet. This is fine, but it tends to give off a whiff of cray. You have to figure every time she made the slightest movie, those feathers were all set aflutter.



Leslie Jones in Christian Siriano

We don’t know… the sheer panels on the sleeves are a little odd. The hair, earrings and legs all look fantastic. If that slit was only a little more demure, we’d have been pretty okay with the sheer skirt.



Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Armani Privé

It looks a little like she’s got an armadillo or trilobite shuffling up her arm, but despite that somewhat horrifying description, we think this is pretty eye-catching.



Michelle Pfeiffer in Oscar de la Renta

We’ve seen this dress a million times, but she’s a goddess who can’t look bad in anything – and someone who spends as little time on red carpets as she can get away with -so we’re willing to cut a diva some slack.



Neve Campbell in Celia Kritharioti Couture

Shrug. Kind of forgettable.



Rachel Bloom in Gucci

This looks great on her. She mentioned on the red carpet that she bought this dress because designers won’t lend her anything, but we suspect it was more about her not liking the options she was given and taking matters into her own hands. Good for her.


Tatiana Maslany in Reem Acra

Believe it or not, we sniped at each other over this. Lorenzo thought it was too underplayed and Tom thought it looked chic and simple, which is the most you can expect from this dork.
