Big blue dress – check. Stacked weird black chunky heels – check. Weird sense of overblown entitlement because you’ve been singled out as the “conventionally pretty one” from Girls? Ohhhh, check. Allison Williams appears to think she is a fashion girl now. I’m not saying she’s not – she may have a great sense of style when she’s stomping through Brooklyn on her days off – and I’m not saying she’s not invited to a ton of fashion shows and the like, because I’m certain she is. Full Story

Stand down other men. You can’t compete with Zachary Quinto. Even though the Emmys tried to disappear him. Please appreciate the satin piping on this jacket that goes all the way around. And the way he didn’t try to exactly match his tie to his handkerchief. It’s OK. You don’t have to. Full Story

Jon Hamm looked like he was in a great mood on the Emmys carpet. Duana would like me to mention that she didn’t mind Jennifer Westfeldt’s dress. I would like to mention that it looks wrinkled. As for his white tuxedo jacket, Duana noted during the live-blog that she’d prefer if it had matched the shirt. Full Story

WOW, this girl.  I’ve been on kind of a renewed crush cycle with her since that video from last spring where she and the other maybe-nominees (sorry, Monica Potter) discussed their lives as actresses, and she had fun and was lively and excited. When I saw her tonight I thought ‘Yeah you are!”  This is what someone who’s nominated for two totally different projects shows up looking like. Full Story

Laura Dern came as Kyra Sedgwick

At the end of it all I asked Duana if she missed Kyra Sedgwick. She did. Then I asked her if Laura Dern filled the Kyra Sedgwick void. It’s the colour. It’s a colour Kyra would have delivered to us, and beautifully. In the absence of Kyra Sedgwick, Laura Dern tried. It was an admirable attempt. Full Story

Sasha and I don’t see each other daily anymore workwise. We did, but it was years ago. However, last fall it so happened that we started to run into each other on the daily again, and the first or second day, she surveyed my outfit and said “Oh right. I forgot you like to mix things up. Full Story

Taffeta at the Emmys: Carrie Underwood

I don’t give a sh-t how you cut it. Taffeta will never be NOT prom to me. And, therefore, to me it should never show up on a red carpet. Unless, of course, it shows up on Carrie Underwood. Like, what else is she going to wear? This woman actively avoids style. Taffeta on Carrie Underwood makes all the sense in the world. Full Story

Give the Best Actress a better dress

It’s Anna Gunn’s time. Now that she’s won a very well deserved Emmy, it’s her time to make the call. They would take her call. Elie Saab would certainly take her call. But she can do even better than Elie Saab. She can do Chanel. She can do Louis Vuitton. She can do Lanvin. Full Story

Worst Emmy Tendrils: Malin Akerman

Okay, so we know there’s a hierarchy to these things, right? All the dresses are chosen in sequence of who gets to wear them, with the best going first, and the last ones going to the guest stars or wives or ladies Of A Certain Age. Malin Akerman isn’t super A-list, but she’s not nobody, either. Full Story

I think I’ve been clear here, before, that I really like the Marg. I spell her name wrong with regularity, of course, but I like her. She’s always kind of got some quiet sass about her, rocking the latter part of her career, and she knows exactly what’s up, I feel, at these events. Full Story
