Red Carpet

Emmys 2022

I gotta be honest I didn’t know the Emmys were last night until I did my typical dinner-time IG scroll and saw red carpet looks. I’m embarrassed to admit that but I like to always keep it real here and the truth is I think I’m getting too old for this shit?! These days Taylor Swift drops a brand new album announcement at midnight after an awards show that I finally realized I’ve aged out of (VMA’s) and I don’t know about it because I’ve been snug as a bug in a rug fast asleep since 10pm. I am ashamed that I’ve fallen off and I will spend this awards season clinging on for dear life. IT’S NOT MY TIME TO GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT YET.

WORST.

I love mint as much as the next basic bitch but this pastel cupcake gown is TOO MUCH. It’s like when everyone in the 80’s thought it was chic to wear a hat and white gloves on their wedding day. The time has passed, bb.

This hair is unforgivable. Jean Smart looks great and has kept it TOIGHT, but my god is that an old lady updo. I can literally smell the aqua net just looking at this photo.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.27.45 PM

Oh honey, you get that on SHEIN? Use that free shipping code?

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.28.42 PM

I’m gonna be real contradictory when you get to the best dressed and see some white lewks on there but this screamed geekburger to me. I know he’s trying to be chic with his bleached hair and clear framed glasses but it’s all just making me wanna scream NERD. And black loafers to finish it off. Woof.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.26.26 PM

AH MY EYES! MY EYES!!!! This color is loud and puketastic to begin with and then a translucent human being was like lemme give it a try though, bet I can make it work. 

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.27.19 PM

What fresh hell is combining black tights & heels with a cream gown? And the JoAnn Fabrics flowers hot glued to it really are the pièce de résistance.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.30.24 PM

Alright Julia is trolling a fellow Julia here, right? Like this is a perfectly crafted prank for my red carpet blog. Setting up a BELLY BUTTON DIAMOND HOLE IN THE MIDDLE OF A DRESS. I repeat, A DIAMOND CUTOUT WITH THE BELLY BUTTON DEAD CENTER AS THE MAIN EVENT. ARE YA KIDDING ME, HOMEGURL? I literally cannot even begin to break down the rest of this outfit because BeLLy BuTtOn.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.32.01 PM

Oh get the hell out of here ole placemat over your shoulders lookin’ ass.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.32.30 PM

Those hard flares really threw me for a loop, I’m not gonna lie. And the tiny jacket.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.34.18 PM

I hated this when I first saw it and then it caught the light when she was onstage and the top loofah ruffle has a plastic shine to it and that reignited my hate.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.34.47 PM

This is a preschool ballet recital costume and you will never be able to convince me otherwise. Grow up, Kaley.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.18.03 PM

There is a time and a place for this outfit and that time is never and that place is nowhere.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.21.07 PM

It’s the v-neck of feathers for me, dawg.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.21.15 PM

I’ll give a million bucks to the person who can locate this good sir’s legs and/or ankles somewhere in this sea of pantaloon fabric.

Look, if your outfit compels me to google “pink outfit lady from Harry Potter” ya know it’s gonna be on the worst dressed list.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.13.50 PM

Peplum and tiered skirts need to DIE AWAY FROM ME because they are HIDEOUS.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.11.23 PM

No thanks to the pinned and curled hair and her cape/gown situation looks like a vagina. Sorry, not sorry.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.12.40 PM

Connie did us all REAL dirty by pulling those luscious locks out of sight. Gurlfrand, your hair is PERFECTION and you’re gonna hide it from us?! RUDE. Also, the dress and cape look cheap AF and we know Connie is TV royalty and will spare no expense for a red carpet look so this is really an off year for her.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.11.58 PM

Please scroll up and see my fury for peplum and tiered ruffles because THIS DRESS WENT AND DID BOTH. Puke city, population: me.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.49.04 PM

Black and white gowns will not hesitate to liken you to a killer whale even if you’re the skinniest person alive and I don’t know how no one has learned this yet. Also she’s about 4 inches from a belly button cutout and ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WITH THE MIDSECTION PEEPHOLES.

 

Not Worst But Also Not Best

I was conflicted on enough looks to create this fun middle category this time around. (AKA something pissed me off about each look to disqualify from best dressed, but they weren’t diamond belly cutout status.)

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.48.38 PM

This is super boring but she looks good. And LOLZ to the Kristin Cavallari 2004 black choker.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.31.51 PM

I would L-O-V-E this dress if it didn’t have a lumpy butt cape attached to it.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.30.54 PM

She looks good but we can definitely just snip snip that netting at the top because it is supes unnecessary. Also kinda would’ve respected her more if she showed up in a white button down with sloppy hair & red lip and spoke in the Elizabeth Holmes low octave monotone in her acceptance speech. 

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.30.45 PM

Very into the color of this dress and the way her boobs stand at attention perfectly as if she’s got a wax figurine rack. Very not into the slicked back bun and whatever jingle jangles were glued all over this dress.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.30.36 PM

This is kind of a bitchy post (what’s new) but if everyone is going to SLOBBER all over Zendaya and her fashion sense, wearing a plain black gown with a high pony is a real low-risk snoozeroni. Naturally she looks beautiful and you can’t go wrong with a classic black ball gown but also not impressed and I better not see ONE SINGLE think piece on Zendaya’s high brow fashion choices here.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.21.27 PM

She’s not posing at a great angle here but I’ve always had a “that’s enough” attitude toward unnaturally high slits. A rhinestone pony though? Hell yea, chick! My humble opinion on her look went right into the trash when she won and got up onstage and BELTED. Queen owned the stage and she can wear whatever the hell she wants.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.20.40 PM

I’m obsessed with a Barbie pink as much as the next Elle Woods but haven’t been a fan of the variations of matronly blazer dress that we’ve seen in this shade so far this year.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.17.46 PM

A Jessica Rabbit moment that would’ve KILLED with soft waves and WHY IS EVERYONE PULLING THEIR HAIR BACK HONESTLY MIDAS WHALE JUST WEAR A BASEBALL CAP IF WE’RE GOING TO KEEP SLICKIN IT UP.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.25.53 PM

SEE ABOVE HAIR RANT.

 

BEST

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.23.28 PM

God I hope this material is like shapewear and slurps it all in because I can’t even imagine having a midsection that cinched. Lily probably doesn’t eat cheese.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.23.56 PM

S’cute for Chris to bring his daughter and for that daughter to not ruin this special moment by dressing like a hooch. Supes heartwarming in this day and age.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.25.39 PM

Purple is having a moment right now ever since Miss Flo blew up Venice with a sassy poutfit so let’s all get down with this sparkle suit.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.27.10 PM

Obviously we need to address the areola(s) in the room first. I can really only see one, but I imagine both are peeking out. I encourage nipple coverage when there is flash photography involved but I’d be a real a*hole to throw this one away over a little highbeam situation. Dress, hair and red lip are stunning but maybe slap on some pasties next time.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.28.32 PM

Amy wears a basic primary color dress pretty much every year (much like Reese) and still looks like a babe soda so I accept.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.29.05 PM

Ooh YES I live for a coordinated handbag moment.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.26.43 PM

Chessie is an American Treasure and she could’ve worn a curtain from the parlor of the East Wing with a bejeweled belt and a seashell clutch and I’d still bow down. Cause that’s what she did. But damnit if she’s PULLING IT OFF.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.30.17 PM

Love the colors of this dress and the longsleeve curveball. Plus ever since I unfollowed Chrissy on all social media, I’ve become much less hostile toward her. 

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.29.21 PM

Don’t know what the hell this side tie is but it’s working for him.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.32.44 PM

I mean, come on. It’s actually unfair how hot she looks. DAYUMMNNNNNNN.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.33.58 PM

This is a restitution pick. For the almost 8 years (yoikes) that I’ve had this blog, I’ve ripped apart Maggie Gyllenhaal on the red carpet each and every time. And it’s time for me to throw her a frickin bone. She looks good here. Her brother is still a butthole and I’ll remember it all too well forever, but Maggie, good job.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.34.37 PM

Reese kills it every time but I’m loving this little spice in the dress pattern. Get down with your bad self, Reese, branching out from the plain gown.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.35.01 PM

I am mesmerized by this dress. It’s not the most flattering shape but I can’t stop staring at it. Really wish I could get my digits on it for a pet cause I gotta know what the texture is like. What it looks like is a hard shell that she’s clunking around and we really should be allowed to just show up to the red carpet and get a grab in for research purposes.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.35.37 PM

Can’t explain it. Don’t know why. But this look is doing it for me. He’s essentially wearing the black version of the outfit that I roasted on Seth Rogen but WHAT A DIFFERENCE color and a cool sexy stare with tousled hair makes. Oh yeah you put that hand in your pocket, Adam.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.16.45 PM

Equally as into the nude and black combo. Basically the next portion of this list is just me horning it up over men’s fash.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.21.55 PM

Andrew’s giving off real Malibu Barbie hits Hollywood vibes in this casj cream suit.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.11.30 PM

Host of the show got the purple memo.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.11.49 PM

Sexy lil snakeskin coat.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.11.39 PM

Again, TOTAL CONTRADICTION cause Seth in this trend is yucky, but Cousin Greg looks suave as hell and I don’t even care that he tossed on black shoes with a whoutfit. 

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.13.06 PM

SERVING that pattern.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.12.56 PM

Bob was literally at death’s door like 4 months ago and he’s really lookin chic here.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.12.24 PM

GORGE.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.12.15 PM

This man wears a classic black tux like nobody’s biz.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.12.08 PM

Wooooo buddy, the cast of Ted Lasso sure knows how to dress.

Screen Shot 2022-09-12 at 9.13.14 PM

V. flattering style and just enough pizazz not to make it boring. The queen of TV really nailed it.

BEST LOOK OF THE NIGHT:

I guess I’ve matured out of the days when my sister and I would see a brown outfit and call it a poop suit because Quinta was the clear winner of the night for me. Not only am I a fan of Abbott Elementary and was excited when she won, but my girl ate that. (For those of you OLDS, that’s what the kids these days say when someone looks good, according to my sources.) Makeup and hair on point, coordinated shoes and jewels, plus a leg moment and I’m very captivated by that candy wrapper shiny texture on the bodice. Top to bottom beaut.
