You know that snapchat filter where you open your mouth and it looks like you’re puking rainbows? That’s how I feel about this dress. Like I’m trying to think of words but I’m just vomiting up flowers and sparkles and happiness and joy and spewing them in your faces because the English language doesn’t have enough words to describe how wonderful this is.

Runner-Up: CLAIRE DANES
gown by Schiaparelli, jewelry by Forevermark

Well, isn’t she just gilded to perfection. It’s hard to go wrong when you dress up as an actual Emmy.

Honorable Mention: PRIYANKA CHOPRA
gown by Jason Wu, jewelry by Neil Lane

Gorgeous color, perfect pleating, and a completely bizarre tit carve-out that I’m kind of obsessed with.

MICHELLE DOCKERY
gown by Oscar de la Renta, jewelry by Harry Winston, shoes by Stuart Weitzman

Delicate and lovely, and it only gives her a mild case of droopy boobs. (Droopy boobs is a common side effect of wearing ruffles on your bodice.)

I just came.

TARAJI P. HENSON
gown by Vera Wang, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz, purse by Edie Parker, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Taraji is a queen. I adore this color on her.

KIRSTEN DUNST
gown by Givenchy, jewelry by Fred Leighton

Kirsten Dunst has recently been dressing like she wants to make sure she can hit up a burlesque club at the end of the night without looking too out of place. And honestly, I think I support that.

ELLIE KEMPER
gown by Jenny Packham, jewelry by Neil Lane

Perfect hair, great jewelry. Not sure the dress is quite right for her.

TINA FEY
gown by Oscar de la Renta, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz

It’s too much skirt for her, and the matching earrings are a little bit cheesy, but she’s working an effortless West Coast chic that we usually don’t see on Tina. I dig it.

CONSTANCE ZIMMER
gown by Monique Lhuillier

The only person allowed to have that haircut is Sutton Foster if she happens to reprise her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie. Love the cap sleeves, though.

ALLISON JANNEY
gown by Badgley Mischka

It’s a little overdesigned – the draped bodice and the bow are nice, but what the hell is happening on the edges there? But Allison Janney could punch me in the face and I would probably still bow down to her.

FELICITY HUFFMAN
gown by Tony Ward, jewelry by Pippa Small

A beautiful gown, though maybe better-suited for a wedding than a red carpet. Also, no to the earrings.

JULIE BOWEN
gown by Lela Rose, purse by Lee Savage

I thought this was fine, if a little underwhelming. Then I caught a glimpse of the back:

I really want to like this, but HOW MANY RUFFLES DO YOU NEED ON SUCH A TINY LITTLE HUMAN.

TERRENCE HOWARD and MIRA PAK

Lighten the fuck up, you two.

PADMA LAKSHMI
gown by Naeem Khan, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz

Pretty but basic.

MINNIE DRIVER
gown by Versace

There’s a fine line between illusion dresses and looking like you got slashed en route to the Emmys.

JULIANNE HOUGH
gown by Armani

Honestly, I hate her so much, she could show up in the most perfect outfit on the planet and I would still be like, “remember when Julianne Hough wore blackface for Halloween a couple of years ago? She’s the worst.”

AMERICA FERRERA
gown by Jenny Packham, jewelry by Neil Lane

Underwhelming and ill-fitting.

JOANNE FROGGATT
gown by Stella McCartney

She’s not even trying, so neither will I.

Worst Dressed: ANNA CHLUMSKY
gown by Christian Siriano
