Well the festivities are over and Hollywood is partying . It was definitely one of the most glamorous Emmy awards of the past few years. In this election year, it was very appropriate to have three Presidents at the ceremony. The nineties seemed to have returned with the two movies about the two biggest news stories of the decade. Add to that two stars that were part of that friendly group of friends that were also nominated tonight.Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer were both present. Schwimmer was a nominee for his role in The People vs OJ Simpson ABC paraded their best and finest tonight in designer gowns and tuxes. (Question, why didn’t we see any other cast of comedies beside Modern Family and Blackish? ) The gal who stole the show on social media tonight was mama to be Kerry Washington. Her Chaka Kahn look rocked the carpet with her Brandon Maxwell and natural curls. The cutouts fit very well around the impending baby embracing her curves. Her hubby was there but the man she was photographed with the most was her leading man and co star Tony Goldwyn. With his Brooks Brothers tux , it looked more like the two were appearing on their hit series than presenting an award.
Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra reminded me of an Indian princess in her fiery Jason Wu gown. It is the perfect introduction to a new season of Quantico since there is bound to be an explosion and fire. Love how it flows and how it spells fun
Black girls rocked tonight and that was obvious . “Empire” star and nominee Taraji P Henson shined in a yellow Vera Wang gown that clung to her well toned body. Her clutch sparkled with her initials and was made by Edie Parker. She became chameleon for the night when she swapped out her curls for a wig that was a black bob. Love how the silver sandals went with the gold of the dress
It was truly a night of celebration for Angela Bassett as her man won and she won raves in this C Siriano gown that shouted class with its flowing cap sleeves . Angela’s husband is Courteney B Vance who won for “The People vs OJ Simpson . The limited series also took the honors for Best Limited Series.
Not since Rachel as Princess Bubble Yum has someone wore something on television so bright and blatant. Viola’s show is called “How to Get Away With Murder” and that is what she did on the carpet last night. Her too bright Marchesa gown reminded me of a bad bridesmaid gown that someone made her wear to make the bride looks gorgeous. The silver brocade that emphasized the v neck and cleavage further made the gown look like it was a left over from a past prom.
Sarah Paulson of “OJ” may have won the prize , but lost the fashion award with her hideous Prada gown. The designer was obviously trying to channel J Lo’s gown from the Oscars but instead made a hideous glittery mess. Her hair made her look like a Claire Underwood wanna be with that bob. The smoky eye also was a mistake and so was showing off the farm. It was just all a mess and not even any of Ru ‘s girls would be caught dead in it. Sashay away!
He may be the most fashionable music mogul but with this combination Terrence Howard looked more like he was getting his school picture taken back in the 70’s. His bow tie is just too distracting and it reminded me of a old time test pattern on a television.
It is one thing to show up at the Emmys dressed looking like your television character if he wears Brooks Brothers and is the President of the United States, but not if you are a hopeless alcoholic and loser. The carpet is not the place to show off your character’s lack of style , so a big boo to William H Macy. and his unironed suit and unshaven face . Felicity had style as always
