To be honest, the after-party fashions for this year’s Emmy’s weren’t as interesting or notable as we’d have hoped; mainly because so many of the attendees didn’t bother changing after the ceremony. Damn them and their practical ways. Let’s judge the piddling remainders, yes?
Alexander Skarsgard in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture
We could’ve put this in our regular Emmys coverage, but this was a better shot than any of his earlier red carpet pics. He looks great. We’re not convinced on the win. We’re totally convinced on the value of that lip warmer: it has none. Lose it, son. If it’s not grand enough to provide a wild ride (if you know what we mean), then what’s the point of it?
Oof. She’s such a lovable kind of celeb, but she never gets the style part right. We suppose that might be part of the appeal. Anyway, this is too greige and too ruffled.
Jaime King in Oscar de la Renta
It’s an easy gown to pull off, which is why we don’t understand the hair and makeup. Just a little bit more effort or oomph was required.
James Marsden in Valentino
Meh. He’s still cute, but this isn’t working. The shirt/tie/jacket color story is too close. And the brown shoes aren’t quite the right shade. And that’s kind of a goofy tie. Take it all off, James. Right this instant.
Julianne Hough in Monique Lhuillier
Kathryn Hahn in Vintage Courrèges
She rarely gets it right, but this looks pretty good on her. We’re assuming she switched into the Vans just for the after-party, in which case, brava.
Laverne Cox in Tadashi Shoji
DAMN, girl. She looks fierce and we totally cop to missing the point by noting that we wish this was lined.
Cute middle management. You’re a Hemsworth, for God’s sake. Do better.
