Emmy Awards 2020: Catherine O’Hara in Valentino

Posted on September 21, 2020

What else is there to say but “FINALLY!” Also: “YAAAAAAS QUEEEEEN!!!!!!”




We don’t know about you guys, but we breathed a sigh of relief when Catherine O’Hara’s first Emmy win kicked off the night. If she lost this category, we’d have spent the entire night in a bad mood. As far as we’re concerned, the wedding scene in the Schitt’s Creek finale was the one that sealed the deal for her. Just an absolute master class in her idiosyncratic brand of comedy. The show’s rise to critical prominence (and the ensuing awards nominations that come with it) gave us the opportunity to assess her approach to red carpet style. This gown checks off all her preferences. She actually does prefer black or black-prominent looks a la Moira Rose and Delia Deetz. Maybe those roles convinced her how good she looks in it, because we feel like they’re both represented here. She also prefers full coverage and a relative lack of fuss. She likes to get a lot of bang for her buck, fashion-wise; opting for looks that don’t ask much of her but still provide a high-impact moment.


We can’t say we’re a hundred percent in love with the design (looks like a sequined turtleneck shoved into a strapless dress), but we do think it suits her well and reflects her own preferences. Besides, you can’t really assess it until you get the full picture:


And that is just perfectly fabulous and totally on-point for a lady who started in the underground comic scene of the punk era.
