Emmys 2018 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on September 19, 2018

Kittens, we’d say it’s definitely time to put this one to bed, yes? If you missed any of our Emmys 2018 red carpet coverage (shame on you), you can catch up on all of it by doing the clicky thing. We, for our parts, are ready to declare the post-event assessing period to be officially CLOSED. Right after we’re done judging all of these stragglers, of course. Put your judgin’ skirt on and let’s get to it.



Alexis Bleder in Delpozo

We loved this for being unique and eye-catching, but the color story is a bit tough to take.



Amy Sedaris

Bless her heart.



Ann Dowd in Christian Siriano

This is just gorgeous. Beautiful colors and a wonderfully dramatic sweep to it.



Betty Gilpin in Vera Wang

Luvya lady, but no. The color’s not all that great, the style is too sporty and your Gwyneth hair needs to be rethought.



Chrissy Teigen (Zuhair Murad Couture) and John Legend (in Gucci)

This all appears to be in order.



Connie Britton in Sachin & Babi

Love the textile, just for being a breath of fresh air on a solid-color-heavy red carpet. The neckline could be just a little smaller.



Ellie Kemper in J. Mendel

It’s a pretty if unremarkable dress in a color she should absolutely never wear.



Ilana Glazer (in Bibhu Mohapatra) and Abbi Jacobson (in Antonio Berardi)

On the one hand, we feel like these looks really suit their personalities. On the other hand, that’s a tough shade of yellow and the last thing either of them needed was boob fringe. We like Ilana’s a bit more, just for having a little modernity to it, but that red panel is kind of irritating.



Letitia Wright in Pamella Roland

It’s pretty and delicate, but we don’t love the hem length or the non-color. Her hair does a lot to elevate the look.



Madelaine Petsch in Prada

She’s really well suited for ’50s styles. We especially love the unusual color story here, which looks great on her.



Mandy Moore in Rodarte

This is all pretty great until you get to the bottom of the skirt. That mermaid flare was absolutely unnecessary.



Marsai Martin in Viktor&Rolf

Super-cute high-fashion for a 14-year-old. Well done. She looks lovely and sophisticated.



Megan Mullaly in Carolina Herrera

Love the colors and pattern, love the relatively simple design. The placket looks awfully puckery and we don’t think that hairstyle really suits her, though.



Padma Lakshmi in J. Mendel

It’s fine. A little … not so fresh, shall we say.



Penélope Cruz in Chanel Couture

Loved this on her. It’s unusually fussy and romantic for her, but the dove gray color does a lot to keep it sophisticated and plays down the frilly and frivolous parts.



Samira Wiley in Jenny Packham

Nothing wrong with this.



Vanessa Kirby in Tom Ford

We hate the way the cups are outlined, but after a lot of harrumphing over this, we have to admit it really suits her well.



Yara Shahidi in Gucci

That flower is a LOT. She can handle it fairly well but we’d still rather see it at roughly half that size.
