Here Are the Best (And The Worst) Looks From the Emmys Red Carpet This Year

Share on Facebook

Last night’s Emmy awards played host to some of the most incredible moments in TV and film history, with the British invasion continuing across the board for yet another year. Netflix’s The Crown and Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You swept some of the major awards of the night while Kate Winslet and Ewan McGregor also left their mark after taking home awards for Mare of Easttown and Halston. From dramatic speeches to cute collaborations, the 73rd Emmy awards lived up to the hype.

But beyond the award portion of the night, we were also treated to some iconic looks. From Old Hollywood style gowns to modern twists on vintage classics, we got to see some of our favorite actors in all of their glory. And then, some that were just… Meh.

Have a look for yourselves…

Kaley Cuoco.

Kaley stunned us all last night in this neon green gown. The vivid contrast between the sleeveless dress and the red carpet made for a well-deserved highlight of the night. And not to mention the thirst trap she posted on Instagram prior to the event in yet another lime-colored number. That’s what happens when you’re newly divorced, ladies and gentlemen. You glow.

Nicole did not come to play.
Her off-the-shoulder violet dress, designed by Christian Siriano gave us total Dreamgirls vibes. The look is to die for.

Just because Brett snagged an Emmy for “Best Supporting Actor” for his role in Ted Lasso, does not mean I’m going to let him off with this basic tux. Just because you wear a black shirt instead of a white one does not mean you’ve done something here. Congrats on the award though.

Julianne Nicholson is the perfect embodiment of summer and fall combined into one beautiful red carpet dress. Boring color choice though but we can work with it.
Rating: 7/10.

Hannah Waddingham.

​Do you know what’s not a boring color choice though? This. Not only did Hannah Waddingham pick a stunning gown, she also matched it with the perfect, sophisticated hairstyle which helped elevate the look from a solid 7 to an 8. We see you, Hannah.

Channeling Zoe Kravitz at the Met Gala, Issa Rae took a shot at the whole transparent glam look and you know what? It paid off. Kind of.

I don’t care how nice your face is, if you turn up looking this boring at a red carpet, you’re not going to get a good rating from me.

Mindy Kaling.

As gorgeous as Mindy is, this outfit did not bang. Are we in 2002? Stop it.

Amy, go home.

Anya Taylor-Joy.

As always, Anya Taylor-Joy stunned fans at the awards. The star of Netflix’s hit series, The Queen’s Gambit, has been on a roll with her silk gowns recently after she turned up to the Venice Film Festival in a neon pink ensemble. And she did not disappoint. Her backless Dior gown and bright, yellow shawl paired with a classic red lip stole all of our hearts, that’s for sure.

Zach Braff.

Another man wearing another black suit. Yeah, I don’t care if he’s Zach Braff. WTF.
Rating: 2/10.

Jason Sudeikis.

Finally! Some style from a man! Jason Sudeikis turned up in a Chris-Evans style blazer. But you know what? The matching trousers took the outfit to another level. Chris Evans who? I only know Jason Sudeikis.
Rating: 8/10.

Sarah Paulson.

Incredible. That’s all I have to say.
Rating: 9/10.

Elizabeth Olsen.

Wearing an ivory number from her sisters’ clothing collection, “The Row”, the Wandavision star showed us why classy and sophisticated is always a good option.
Rating: 7.5/10.

Mandy Moore.

There have been some pretty nice, red gowns on the Emmys carpet this year and Mandy Moore served some face and body in this stunning Carolina Herrera gown with tulle skirt add-ons. The This Is Us actor also added some Fernando Jorge earrings and a ring to complete the look.
Rating: 8.2/10.

Daniel Levy.

Daniel Levy is really making us forget about everyone else. This entire ‘fit is fire. And he’s the first man on this list to get into the 9s, so congrats!
Rating: 9.1/10.

Allison Janney.

Now, Allison has come through on this list as a dark horse. I really did not see this coming. From the shoulder exposure to the asymmetrical cut on the cape of the gown, I’m very impressed. Stunning.
Rating: 9/10.

Annie Murphy.

This entire look is giving me total Margot Robbie vibes. And Margot Robbie is an absolute A+, so is Annie. The slits at the bottom of the dress is a hate crime, but other than that, it’s a decent effort.
Rating: 6.9/10.

Kate Winslet.

Come on, Kate. This is not what we want to see. At least her hair looks good though.
Rating: 4/10.

Yara Shahidi.

The green and gold combination is magnificent. Yara Shahidi never disappoints me and that’s why I love her.
Rating: 8.9/10.

Billy Porter.

Billy Porter may have chosen black, but he knew exactly how to make that stand out from the crowd. The jewelry over the gloves was a tremendous idea. It’s all about the details guys…
Rating: 8.2/10.

Olivia Coleman.

Oh Olivia. Oh.
Rating: 4/10.

Juno Temple.

Co-ords are simple yet effective. Though the skirt is a little bit outdated, I can still appreciate the beauty and the lace trimming.
Rating: 7/10.

Josh O’Connor.

Even though Josh is wearing a black tux, this one stands out from the rest because of the cropped jacket and silk waistband. The little neck tie is a really good addition to the outfit too. And not to mention how cute he is in general. Okay. We love.

Lucia Aniello.

Is it just me or are you also getting science teacher that turns up to chaperone the high school prom. Yikes.
