Do you see what I’m saying about the strapless dresses? Not only does this one fit tightly under her armpits, but it also rises up and curves OVER her cleavage. There is no danger that it’s going anywhere.   I am more relaxed just by looking at her. This is, of course, because JLD is a big old pro and it’s not her first rodeo, but still. Full Story

Almost, Kate Mara

I thought about giving it to Kate Mara, I did. Her white dress was among the best in a night where best, at best, was B+. And there were so few of those. It’s J Mendel. It’s a good idea, not greatly executed. Take a look at it from the side. You see that sheer pantyhose holding it together? Cheap. Full Story

By Marchesa standards, it wasn’t horrific. You know what horrific Marchesa looks like, right? Here. That should refresh your memory. Or see Malin Akerman. So, again, by Marchesa standards, it could have been worse. But… I don’t want to talk about Kerry Washington, our beloved Kerry Washington, in those terms. Full Story

It has to be daunting by this point. By now, Shipka knows she’s not just having fun with clothes. That is, she may well be, but now she knows very well that it’s becoming a thing, the way she looks and what she chooses to wear and stuff, she’s one of the people people care about. Full Story

Emmys Most Significant Fabric: Connie Britton

Duana Posted by Duana at September 23, 2013 16:19:51 September 23, 2013 16:19:51

It looks like Nashville. Right? Am I right? My girl Connie Britton dressed in Lions red when it was time to celebrate FNL, and now that it’s about Nashville, it’s about the kind of velvet and brocade that might as easily upholster a chaise lounge to celebrate Rayna James.  I did not hate it. Full Story

I like Anna Faris so much, so much, so much. But… I’m worried. I worry that maybe the pressure after baby was too much, what with getting a new show and – gasp! – being almost 37 in Hollywood. Was it too much? There seems to be a lot of stress on her face, you know? Like…is it breaking? I don’t want to say that. Full Story

Jessica Pare’s turquoise taffeta

You combine turquoise with taffeta and there’s only one place you should be: The Enchantment Of The Sea, graduating class 1987. Have your best friend hold your hair back while you puke tequila in this dress. Lose your virginity in this dress. But do not, do not wear this dress to the Emmy’s, for Christ’s sake. Full Story

Emmys Most Insufferable: Allison Williams

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

No one comes close to Zachary Quinto

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’s white jacket

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
