Emmys Best & Worst Dressed

I love watching celebrities walk the red carpet. I’m always looking out for the best dressed, and I enjoy guessing which designer the celebrity is dressed in. As fun as it is to notice the best dressed ladies, I also can’t help but pinpoint the worst dressed. My comments will never be as vulgar as Joan Rivers, but I do like to bring out my inner ‘Fashion Police.’ Below are my favorite and least favorite looks from the Emmys.

Best Dressed List

rose-byrne calvin klein

Rose Byrne in Calvin Klein – I love how effortless and simple this look is. Rose Byrne looks flawless from head to toe. I love her hair, the earthy make-up, and the pink top and skirt.

sofia-vergara vera wang

Sofia Vergara is the bombshell of the red carpet! She always knows how to accentuate her curves. Dressed in Vera Wang, Sofia looks gorgeous.


Zooey Deschanel – Dressed in this silvery pale blue J. Mendel dress, this dress clearly reflects Zooey’s fun and quirky personality. Though this isn’t my favorite dress, I still appreciate that Zooey always dresses true to herself and let’s face it – she’s hilarious! I’m a huge New Girl fan!

julie-bowen zac posen

Julie Bowen – There’s something intriguing and exciting about this dress. I love the silhouette, mainly the ruffles of the bottom part of the dress. The dress is elegant, yet still has a modern edge to it which is shown through the sleeves. I’m not a huge fan of the sleeves though.


Maria Menounos -This navy Zac Posen dress hugs Maria’s body in all the right places. I love the simplicity of the dress and the statement necklace matches it perfectly.

kerry-washington - marchesa

Kerry Washington – It would be a huge shocker if I didn’t include a Marchesa dress in my favorites. I like the dress but I’m not sure if I love it. There’s something intriguing about it, and the flower appliques almost tell a story. The dress definitely mesmerizes me!

Worst Dressed List

zosia-mametZosia Mamet – this is probably the ugliest dress of them all. The print doesn’t look good, and I don’t understand the sheer top part and especially the black leather on the chest.

lena-dunham - prada worst dressedLena Dunham – this Prada dress is unflattering on her and is eye-catching for all the wrong reasons.

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsLena Headey in Alessandra Rich. I didn’t like this dress at all! I like sheer but this sheer dress is really ugly – the print isn’t nice and it would’ve been nicer if it was lace.

carrie-underwood - Ramona Keveza

Carrie Underwood – this Ramona Keveza dress isn’t the worst of the ‘worst dressed’ but I just didn’t like it and was disappointed when I saw it. I think the fabric looks cheap and it’s just a boring dress. However, her hair and make-up are beautiful!


Connie Britton – Did her dress catch on fire? She must’ve turned her curtain into a dress in the last minute.

claire-danes - armani prive

Claire Danes – Dressed in Armani Prive, Claire chose classic and simple as always. However, the plunging neckline does not suit her body shape at all. The color of the dress also washes her out.

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Juiliana Marguiles – this dress was a huge disappointment. It looks really outdated – the print is dull and nothing about this dress excites me.

jessica-pare - oscar de la renta

Jessica Pare – She’s so thin yet this Oscar de la Renta dress is so unflattering on her! I didn’t like it on her at all.

    I totally agree with all of your best dressed list and most of the worst dressed (kinda liked Lena Headey’s).
    A look that I really liked and you didn’t include was Allison Williams, although it’s pretty plain the color is gorgeous and she looks good in it.

    Great blog, keep posting :)

      Thanks for your comment! I liked Allison Williams’ dress to but like you said it was plain and I felt like she could’ve worn something more exciting! She still looked amazing and her hair and make-up was flawless!
      Thank you! I’m glad you’ve been enjoying my blog :D
