Emmys 2018 Red Carpet Trends: A Basket of Sunshine

Posted on September 18, 2018

Ranging in shades from lemony to goldenrods to chartreusey neons, the hottest color trend of fall 2018 was also, unsurprisingly, a rather unlikely red carpet trend for this year’s Emmys. Clearly, we’re only talking about a fairly small number of notable attendees sporting it, but given how infamously difficult a color it is to wear, not to mention how un-photogenic it can be on the wrong skin tones, BOLD YELLOWS made a fairly strong showing this year. And we’re sorry to say, the idea that it’s incredibly hard to pull off was not challenged in any significant way.



Adina Porter in Rubin & Chapelle

A lot of these ladies just didn’t land on the shade that flatters them, but Miss Adina’s one of the few who did. We love the color on her, love the hair and makeup. Do not love the shape, the textile or the shoes, though.



Alison Brie in Miu Miu

Ooof, no. Sorry, girl. The design is kind of tacky and the color is jaundice-y.



Gwendoline Christie in Giles Deacon Couture

We love that she takes risks with her fashion and that she has a love of going big and bold in her choices. And this is a great shade of yellow for her. This concludes the complimentary portion because this looks like sexy choir robe or graduation gown. It’s costume-y and a little cheap-looking.



Judith Light in Christian Siriano

A gorgeous shade of yellow that does most of the work for a simple and elegant design that suits her perfectly. We’re not in love with the cape, but it’s still a fantastic look for her.



Regina King in Christian Siriano

This color looked a lot better on stage – or maybe we were just thrilled that she won and our good feeling spilled over to the dress. Not that this is bad. It’s simple and elegant. We’re just not fans of neon yellows, for the most part.



Tatiana Maslany in Christian Siriano

We think it’s a color that works better cut with some black. The drama of this look is really appealing, and the vaguely sporty undertone suits her personality. We appreciate Christian’s attempt to make it more dramatically formal, but it just looks like an odd mashup of elements, and the right side of the bodice seems really unresolved as a design.
