Who wore what (and why?) at last night’s Emmy Awards

YES, I saw what Kerry, Julia, Laverne, Angela, Amy, Hayden and Keke wore, but this is my choice for best dressed at last night’s Emmy Awards. Mad Men’s Teyonah Parris is resplendent in this bold ball gown from Christian Siriano’s Spring 2014 collection worn at last nights primetime Emmy Awards. Love the color, silhouette, hair and makeup; she absolutely glows! This is black-tie at its best, without being stuffy or weird. And it’s a sigh of relief from all the sparkle, fit and flare looks and trumpet skirts.

Which leads me to my worst-dressed choice: Lena Dunham in Giambattista Valli. I love the idea of this confection of a skirt, and I adore the ombré effect, but the fit is way off. This is a daring look that the wearer must OWN. Her posture conveys a feeling of uncertainty. I don’t think Peter Pan collars work on anyone over the age of six, and I wish the bodice had been better fitted to her body. It’s unfortunate.
