2017 Emmy Awards, Part 3

Let’s finish this shit up. 

Best Dressed: DONALD GLOVER

Nothing but respect for MY president. Amidst a sea of basic bros in black tuxedos, Donald Glover was a beacon of hope. If even a handful of other men dared to introduce color into their wardrobes, the red carpet would be a vastly more interesting place.

Runner-Up: NICOLE KIDMAN

This funky-formal aesthetic SCREAMS “Oscar winner at one of those less-important awards shows, I can’t be bothered to remember which one,” and I am here for it. The pink shoes were a bizarre but interesting choice.

Honorable Mention: VIOLA DAVIS
gown by Zac Posen, jewelry by Harry Winston

This tangerine color was MADE for her. She looks so goddamn flawless.

Pretty and understated, but just cool enough to keep me from getting bored. Would have made the top 3 if it were in a bolder color.

LENA WAITHE
tuxedo by Alba

Jacket is stunning; styling is strong. Lena is an absolute delight.

NATALIA DYER
gown by Vera Wang

The skirt’s a bit heavy for such a little slip of a lady, but I love the color and the neckline. And her Bambi eyes are a truly excellent accessory.

The cut-out should be smaller, to avoid proportion issues, but I like the print and texture.

CHRISSY METZ
gown by Lela Rose

Another magnificent color. I wish it were slightly shorter and the ombre effect started a little higher, but otherwise, I approve.

EMMY ROSSUM

The jewelry was a desperately-needed pop of color. Though she looks virtually perfect, I can’t bring myself to get excited over a plain black sparkly gown.

TRACEE ELLIS ROSS

Oh, Tracee. Never change. Except your shoes.

JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS
gown by Carolina Herrera

She’s a superhero. Love the floral embellishment, but I wish this dress had a little more going on.

MICHELLE PFEIFFER
dress by Oscar de la Renta

Okay, I have to know: did Michelle Pfeiffer save a warlock’s life? Does she have a diet solely comprised of kale and unicorn blood? Are her Horcruxes still hidden on the lot where she filmed Grease 2? WHAT IS THIS WOMAN’S SECRET TO ETERNAL YOUTH?!

KATE MCKINNON
gown by Narciso Rodriguez

Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty

The fit isn’t right, but her joy during the entire event was so infectious.

GUGU MBATHA-RAW
gown by Boss, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty

A gorgeous gown, but the styling doesn’t do it justice. The gold peep-toe platforms don’t work here at all.

REESE WITHERSPOON
dress by Stella McCartney, shoes by Christian Louboutin

Like Nicole, this look also says “I’m too famous to be here,” but this just doesn’t feel formal enough for me. And the hair feels very dated.

SAMIRA WILEY
gown by Christian Siriano, purse by Jimmy Choo

Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty

It’s fine, but I can’t get excited about it.

JANE FONDA
gown by Brandon Maxwell, jewelry by Gismondi, purse by Tyler Ellis, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Those clip-on bangs and ponytail are a crime against humanity.

ANNA CHLUMSKY
gown by Sachin & Babi, jewelry by Forevermark

Photo: J. Merritt/Getty

The placement of the different sparkly fabrics doesn’t work for me at all, but Anna Chlumsky gave GREAT gif during the Emmys, so she gets a pass.

TATIANA MASLANY
gown by Reem Acra

Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty

Too ordinary.

ELLIE KEMPER
gown by Jenny Packham, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz, purse by Judith Leiber, shoes by Stuart Weitzman

Photo: J. Merritt/Getty

Everything about this is an adorable mess.

Worst Dressed: JULIE BOWEN
gown by Alberta Ferretti

Photo: Kevin Mazur/WireImage

I’m sure it’s hot out there, but half a dozen fans attached to her leg make her seem just a bit overprepared.
