Let’s finish this goddamn thing.
Best Dressed: KERRY WASHINGTON
dress by Marc Jacobs
It’s cool and tough and sexy and weird. Also, Olivia Pope sprouted wings:
I love it all.
Runner-Up: SARAH PAULSON
gown by Prabal Gurung, purse by Rauwolf
Pretend the hair isn’t happening, and this is one of my favorite red carpet looks of all time. Slam motherfucking dunk.
Honorable Mention: TATIANA MASLANY
suit by Bouchra Jarrar, shoes by Sophia Webster
I can’t tell if the relaxed fit is perfect, or it’s a regular-fit tuxedo that just doesn’t actually fit her. But, screw it, you know I’m a complete sucker for formal ladypants, so I love this anyway.
gown by Brandon Maxwell
God bless the person on Gaga’s staff who said, “Listen, Stef, could you just calm down maybe for one night, since the Emmys are SERIOUSLY not about you?” She looks breathtaking, and shockingly appropriate. It would have been a diva move – and not the good kind – to show up to the Emmys in a dress made of human fingernails or whatever.
jumpsuit by Ulyana Sergeenko
Sure, maybe she looks like she’s not all the way finished transitioning from mermaid to human, and also I think she slept on her hair wrong. But is it wrong that I like this? Maybe I’m just sick of seeing the same goddamn dress over and over again. Maybe I’ve finally snapped. Or maybe I just firmly believe in a starlet’s right to Gumby.
gown by Jenny Packham, purse by Lee Savage
I usually find her incredibly basic, and I’ll never really buy her as a blonde, but I’ll admit it, Emma Roberts turned it the fuck out. But like, in a quietly pretty way.
gown by Zuhair Murad
Serving up murderous incestuous regal realness with this gown. In Cersei’s case, that’s a good thing. But her makeup artist was clearly hired by the Tyrells to destroy her.
gown by Romona Keveza
Ok, I won’t pretend I’ve never seen this gown before, but this is some sophisticated-ass shit for a 17-year-old.
gown by Jonathan Cohen, purse by Rauwolf
Great colors, but it seems boxy and strangely baggy around Uzo’s waist.
gown and purse by Miu Miu
Careful! If you scroll up and down this dress too quickly, your eyeballs will literally explode.
gown by Giles
Brienne of Tarth, man. Even a snooze of a dress takes on this whole dramatic, ancient, glorious goddess vibe when she puts it on. It’s just awesome.
gown by Zac Posen
Good color, decent silhouette, terrible fit. Love the shoes.
Listen, Robin Wright, I’m happy for you that your body simply refuses to age, but this just looks like futuristic underwear.
gown by Safiyaa
Ambien in dress form.
gown by Prada
What is she, a child bride?
gown by Gabriela Cadena
An Urban Outfitters sale rack in the mid-aughts.
jumpsuit by Galvan
NO, SANSA. NO. Ladypants are wonderful, but if they don’t fit, there is no excuse for that bullshit. Get it together.
gown by Rubin Singer
Taryn, I generally don’t condone violence, but I want you to go find your hairstylist and punch him in the face.
Worst Dressed: HEIDI KLUM
gown by Atelier Versace
THIS IS THE WOMAN WHOM WE HAVE LET JUDGE A FASHION COMPETITION FOR ELEVEN YEARS. For the love of God. No wonder Trump is still up in the polls. I would blame this dress on all of us, for letting such a monstrosity occur, for not intervening in Heidi Klum’s wardrobe sooner. But it’s so horrific that I cannot in good faith take credit for it. Even we are not this talented at fucking things up.
