2017 Emmy Awards: The Good Stuff

This was a really good red carpet– take a look at my best dressed picks below.

Best Dressed: Emmy Rossum in Zac Posen

Emmy (fittingly) takes the prize for Best Dressed of the night. I love everything about this- it’s glamorous and well styled, with flawless makeup and stunning jewels. It’s the gown I would wear given the opportunity.

Best Dressed, Runner Up: Tessa Thompson in Rosie Assoulin

Easy choice for Best Dressed runner up. This dress is a joy- fun, unique, shiny, and twirl-able. Absolutely stellar.

Whoever is styling these kids is doing A+ work. How adorable are they!?

Lea Michele in Elie Saab

This is the best she’s ever looked. Gorgeous color, detail, and fit.

I love the iridescence of this otherwise simple look.

Shannon Purser in Sachin and Babi

Not surprised this is custom—it’s youthful, lovely and fits her personality beautifully.

Jaimie Alexander in Naeem Khan

My favorite Naeem of the night. This is interesting in a really beautiful way and well styled.

Hilaria Baldwin in Badgley Miscka

I’m a sucker for a good flora ballgown, and this one is lovely.

Julianne Hough in Marchesa

Perhaps the best she’s ever looked, and one of the best Marchesa’s on the red carpet in a long time. This one came straight off the runway from NYFW.

Chrissy Metz in Lela Rose

This is proof positive that designers can and should reach outside their comfort zone and design looks for people who aren’t a sample size. This is her most successful look to date, and a win for Lela Rose.

Julie Bowen in Alberta Ferretti

This is another designer I would like to see more on red carpets. Very elegant.

Gillian Anderson in Sophia Kah

I’d never heard of this designer before, but I love the burgundy velvet and there’s some really lovely lace detailing over an open back.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Armani Prive

Simply glamorous, with lovely little details to make it interesting.

Anna Chlumsky in Sachin and Babi

Embed from Getty Images

What a revelation! This is by far the best she’s ever looked on a red carpet. Hard to believe this is the same woman who wore a brocade sack to last years’ ceremony.

Yara Shahidi in Prada

Yara takes a lot of risks, but sometimes you need a simple princess moment. One of the better Prada’s I’ve seen in a while

Mandy Moore in Carolina Herrera

Always love seeing one of my favorite designers on the red carpet! Mandy has had some misses lately, but this is solidly great.

Thandie Newton in Jason Wu

Sometimes less is more. This is simple and lovely.

Laura Dern in Proenza Schuler

Embed from Getty Images

This was one was polarizing, but I really like it. The runway version had a lot more cutouts in the bodice, which I’m glad she chose to modify.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Custom Carolina Herrera

Gorgeous dress to make well deserved history in.

Nicole Kidman in Calvin Klein

Embed from Getty Images

I love everything here except for the pink shoes, and the fact that she refuses to dye her hair back to Moulin Rouge red.

Zoe Kravitz in Dior

Embed from Getty Images

This rainbow gown suffers by comparison with Tessa’s but the feathering is a lovely effect and this is a lot better than many of the other Dior’s we’ve seen recently.

Alexis Bledel in Armani Prive

Unfortunately, this is so much better than what she wore to win her statue at the Creative Arts Emmy’s. Better late than never. Love this!
