Emmys 2022: Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on September 14, 2022

Let’s wrap up our 2022 Emmys coverage together, like a family. A really bitchy, judgmental family with a lot of opinions. Darlings, is there any other kind of family? Come with us, on a journey of exploration, discovery, and poor choices.



Alexandra Daddario in Dior Couture

We’re old fashioned sorts, which means we feel that if you’re going to pick a tits-out Dior Couture piece for the red carpet, it should at least be an interesting tits-out Dior Couture piece. This is deadly dull, which is not the sort of thing you want people saying when you go to the trouble of putting your girls out there.




Amy Poehler in Halston

This is really great. She’s at her best when she keeps things really simple.




Angela Bassett in Dolce & Gabbana

Simply spectacular. D&G really reined in their maximalist instincts for this one and they wound up doing right by her. LOVELOVELOVE the bag.




Ariana DeBose in Prabal Gurung

Oof. No, girl. The color, shape and style are all looking stale and unsuited to you.



Ayo Edebiri in Giambattista Valli Couture

This is really cute and we love the she opted to come out in as pure an ingenue look as you’ll find anywhere. We wish it had a more defined waist and we don’t love the cape, but we like that she went in this direction.




Britt Lower in Cucculelli Shaheen

The gloves are way too much. We don’t love cutouts, but this would look so much better if she just ditched the oven mitts.




Chrissy Teigen (in Naeem Kahn) and John Legend (in Gucci)

Those colors look gorgeous on her and we love the subtle pattern of his suit.




Connie Britton in Monique Lhuillier

Way too “mother of the bride.” Sorry, Connie, but you deserved better.




Emily V. Gordon (in Theia) and Kumail Nanjiani

As always, they look adorable. This time, they also look chic and hot. His jacket is a weensy bit snug but he looks fantastic. We love the sort of tie-dye print of her dress combined with the precise pleating. The colors look great on her and we love the mani.



Geena Davis in Rani Zakhem Couture

This is lovely and we’re surprised by how well she’s working that color. The bodice design feels a little unresolved, though.




Hannah Einbinder in Rodarte

We were surprised to see her in a gown, since she’s been killing it on the suit front for a while now. This is unexpectedly stark and minimalist, which really works for her. There’s a quiet drama to it.




HoYeon Jung in Louis Vuitton

We loved this. The color combination is unusual enough to be really eye-catching and the hair flower was a fun touch.




Issa Rae in Sergio Hudson

The shape and style are fantastic and we love the jewelry and coordinating manicure. We don’t love the color-blocking of the dress.




Kaitlyn Dever in Naeem Khan

There’s nothing wrong with this but she always tends towards minimalist pieces with low-key styling and we don’t think it serves her well for promotional purposes. Even in a slinky red gown that looks objectively great on her, she doesn’t stand out. We’d have rec’d some more intense styling for this one.




Kaley Cuoco in Dolce & Gabbana

Horrible. We’re sorry, Kaley, but your dress is a joke. D&G did you wrong.




Kerry Washington in Elie Saab Couture

For such a little dress, it serves up a ton of drama. We don’t think the black hose really add much to it except to ensure that it doesn’t look bridal.




Lily James in Atelier Versace

There was definitely a bronze trend on this red carpet and we’re here for it. This looks amazing on her. The fit is so good it looks like it was poured on her.



Lisa Ann Walter in Perry Meek

We suspect this is a pure fantasy fashion moment for her. It’s not entirely to our tastes, but it’s pretty and photogenic and she’s loving it.




Markella Kavenagh in Vintage Vivienne Westwood

It’s kind of just okay. The shape is simple and the style doesn’t have a lot of impact except for the color. We think she needed some more aggressive styling for this one.



Natasha Rothwell in Safiyaa

We loved this. She looks like a queen. We wish she had a big honking jewel on a pendant.




Rachel Brosnahan in Pamella Roland

This is gorgeous. It’s really well suited to her and no one else is wearing anything that comes close to looking like it. Perfect pendant and manicure.




Reese Witherspoon in Armani Privé

It’s okay. The colors don’t necessarily pop for her and we think the hem is kind of awful.




Rhea Seehorn in Georges Chakra Couture

Once we noted that the top looked like bacon, this dress was all over for us.




RuPaul and Michelle Visage (in Michael Costello)

We hate to say it, but they both could tone it down just a little.




Sandra Oh in Rodarte

LOVED this. What a gorgeous color. What a drop-dead sexy suit. She’s perfect for it. Those earrings are insane.
