Emmys 2018: Red Carpet Closeout

Time to (belatedly of course…) finish up our coverage of the 2018 Emmys!

Mandy Moore in custom Rodarte

Ugh, Rodarte. This is so much better than most of what they throw down the runway, but I’m still not on board. I find this ridiculously unflattering around her stomach for something that was custom.

So boring. But SO much better than past years.

Madeline Brewer in Brock Collection

I really want to like Brock Collection – they’re stuff is very romantic and proper, but I find it also comes off incredibly stuffy. This black gown in particular is aging her back to the Victorian Era.

I have Cruz-Chanel Fatigue. Or maybe I just have Chanel Fatigue…

Hard pass on this Kardashian Kleenex Koncoction.

Classically lovely.

Taraji P. Henson in Giambattista Valli and Samantha Bee in Ronald Van Der Kemp

I couldn’t find a picture of Taraji from the red carpet, so Samantha Bee is tagging along here as well. Katers gonna hate (and a lot of folks did) but I love Taraji’s Giambattista Valli! It has two of my all-time favorite elements: florals and capes. Sadly, next to her, Samantha looks like the snazziest lady day trader straight out of 1983.

I could definitely see this as a nod to the 1980’s leotards on “Glow”, but I could also be giving it too much credit. The only thing it definitely is, is ugly.

Samira Wiley in Jenny Packham

This is spectacular and was my pick for Allison Janney at the Oscars earlier this year!

Judith Light in Christian Siriano

Sassy AF. Also, #NeverForget.

Our little Paige is all grown up! I love the color and fabric, but wish the neckline had one less element to it. When i put my finger over her left arm and imagine it as a simple long-sleeved v-neck I like it 100% more.

Gwendoline Christie in Giles Deacon

Great color, but boy did that fabric suffer from the car ride over.

Connie Britton in Sachin and Babi

Fabulous, like her hair.

Gina Rodriguez in Zuhair Murad

This dress came down the runway with a cape. It is heresy to me that anyone would remove it.

Sophie Hunter in Emilia Wickstead

Seems like yellow was the color of the night, which I am all for. I think I like Sophie’s the best – the emerald earrings really clinch it for me.
