Emmys 2015 – Worst of The Night.

So unlike my prior post on the fashion seen at this year’s Emmys, this post might have just a tad bit of negativity thrown into the mix!

As always, we expect to see the good bad and in-between at all award shows and boy oh boy did the Emmys not disappoint. For all of the dazzling beauts of the evening have a look here at my Best Dressed post, but for some horrendous looks, some of which will curl your toes, then continue on and scroll to find the horror below.

Let’s kick things off with the worst of the worst…

Heidi Klum in Versace dress and shoes with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery:


Where on earth did this canary yellow disaster pop out of?! Heidi is a stunning supermodel with beauty and brains to boot and then she comes out looking like someone made her dress out of some very distressed canaries – this is an absolute disaster. Although it still wouldn’t have been nice, she could have at least taken off that God awful sleeve and lapel combination, I mean it’s not like she trying to cover anything up! From shoulders to toes this is a horrendous and tacky ensemble. Genuinely all that I can think of is that if I was a canary I’d rather be in a coal mine than be associated with this dress. One positive: at least this wasn’t designed by any of her Project Runway designers because that would have been the start and end of their career in one foul swoop! Heidi… get a stylist!


Dascha Polanco:

Dascha Polanco

Following on from our supermodel in distress we have Dascha Polance from Orange Is The New Black. Dascha is a beautiful, curvy woman, but here she is doing herself zero favours. Although the voluptuous form isn’t your usual Hollywood stereotype, you can make the best of your body no matter what shape or size you are and unfortunately, that is exactly the opposite of what Dascha is doing. That sheer skirt and slit just isn’t pretty. The dress as a whole is boring and not that cute, but if Dascha had just lowered the slit a few inches (maybe like 8…) then this would flatter her so  much better. This just isn’t good.

Kathryn Hahn in Vivienne Westwood with Eva Fehren jewels:

Kathryn Hayn

I hate to be mean, but Kathryn’s dress is hideous! This macabre frock is genuinely one of the worst things I have laid my eyes upon. I would say that perhaps this would look good on a model or someone, but being honest, I can’t find any good qualities about it. It looks like someone found two pairs of their nanna’s old curtains, sowed them together, threw on some make-up and hoped that no one would notice… #DIYCinderella!

Julianne Hough in Marchesa with a Jimmy Choo clutch:


Julianne looks like a modern day wicked witch of the west gone wrong in this ensemble. This dress just is not nice on her and 100% is not for an occasion like this. The sad thing is that I do think that the dress could be stunning on someone with model proportions to a different event though (I know I’m obsessed with her, but Sophie Turner perhaps?). One saving glory for Julianne is that although that head-band sucks, her hair is cute from the back!


Amy Schumer in Zac Posen:


Fair play to Amy for her amazing Emmy win, but this look was certainly not worthy. Like Dascha, Amy has some curves, but apparently doesn’t know how to use them. I find this look very surprising because even though Zac Posen isn’t always my favourite designer, he usually sculpts beautifully to the body – something which he didn’t quite get here. This gown hugs Amy in all the wrong places, her hair looks like she just had sex in the limo before hopping out and I can just tell that she had to keep pulling it up at her chest region all night.


Danielle Brooks:


Looking more parrot than canary, it seems like Danielle Brook and Heidi Klum were birds of a feather at last night’s Emmys. Tropical bird puns aside, Danielle certainly wasn’t looking too tasty on the night (sometimes I just can’t help myself). This dress was too tight on the thighs and adding extra fabric to a larger woman is never a good idea. Even twirling couldn’t help her case… next!


Christine Marzano:

This woman is absolutely stunning, but there is no excuse for this dress. Obviously trying to make a name for herself, Marzano walked the carpet in this next to nothing attire. Now, I am never one for this as I just think that it’s tacky, but asides from that, there are literally children at this event and you rock up practically naked – really Christine? If I was on the Emmy committee I wouldn’t have let her in – it’s not like she’s important anyway…

Next we have 3 dresses which, although I don’t like anyway, are here for their terrible fabric choices. This fabric should never be seen on a red carpet:

Elizabeth Moss in Oscar de la Renta:


Uzo Aduba in Jonathan Cohen:


I don’t even know who this woman is…


Carice Van Houten:

Carice Van Houten

Judging from this look, I think that maybe the red lady should stick to her colour. Carice is a beautiful woman and has killed it on the red carpet before, but unfortunately here she just isn’t looking her best. This colour washes her out, it doesn’t fit nicely and when you look at it closely, parts of the dress even look unfinished! For someone who has see in the future she really should have seen this one coming. Not a good look for her at all.

Emma Myles:


Her hair and make-up are pretty, but I honestly can’t even begin to comment on the dress… This are so many things wrong with it that there’s no point in even trying!

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Oscar de la Renta:

Maggie Gyllenhal

A bad night for the Oscar de la Renta brand, this is yet another dress designed with horrific fabric. Maggie is accustomed to donning garments with her own off-beat personal style and I completely encourage that, but not with this fabric. What is up with everyone picking these crinkly, unflattering textiles?

Alan Cumming:

Alan Cumming

The worst male of the night, Alan came with enough spare fabric for a whole other suit! I’m wondering if he’s ever come across the world ‘tailoring’? Quirky tie and pants aside, the weather at the Emmys yesterday was beautiful and really warm, which begs the question – why on earth is he wearing crocs and holding an umbrella?!

Julie Klausner:

Julie Klausner

If January Jones showed us all how to rock a green jumpsuit, Julie Klausner has shown us exactly how not. The general theme of this post so far, Julie is wearing something with both bad fit and bad fabric. This jumpsuit makes Julie look much bigger than she is and then her hair just looks like she’s going to the shop to buy dinner. Overall, this is not a good look and the sleeves don’t certainly don’t help.

Tracee Ellis Ross and Jane Krakowski:

Neithr Tracee nor Jane chose the right looks this time round. Both stars are wearing gowns which are uncomfortably tight to the extent that they can’t even stand how they normally do. Tracee’s is sucking her in in the torso and flattening her chest while Jane’s just looks uncomfortable all round.



Helen McCrory:

Helen McCrory

I’m sorry Helen, but you’re at a celebrity award ceremony, I don’t care if it’s sunny – take off the God damn glasses. Oh, and your dress isn’t nice either.

Chelsea Peretti in Gabriela Cadena:

Chelsea Perretti

Finishing off our fashion failures is Chelsea Peretti in a gown which just isn’t right. I don’t particularly like this dress anyway, but asides from that it just doesn’t suit her, and you can tell by her face that she thinks the same thing! At the end of the day, you can get the most stunning dress in all of existence, but if it doesn’t suit you then I’m afraid you just need to let it be and that’s what Chelsea should have done here. Two positives though – her leg looks amazing and I really like her shoes too!

Well that’s that folks! If you made it to the end of this post then congratulations because I’m sure you’re as tired as I am after looking at all of those looks 😛

Emmys 2014, Best Dressed.

Unlike the VMAs, this year’s Emmys did not disappoint in the fashion stakes. Numerous stars not only walked the red carpet, but absolutely owned it. From edgy, modern looks to classic and chic, the multitude of styles shown was amazing and it was certainly a difficult task to whittle down the list and decide who was the best of the night. Due to this troublesome task I not only have a top 3, but also some other ladies who grabbed the spotlight in their stylish ensembles. So, without further adieu, I am going to kick things off, not with my best of the best, but with some stylish starlets who certainly showed their fashion gusto.


Heidi Klum in Zac Posen:


Heidi was stunning in this red, floor-length gown which not only highlighted the supermodel’s gorgeous figure, but also introduced us to a new, softer, more flowing direction for Zac Posen.


Gwen Stefani in Versace:


Gwen had to be added into the fold for this, edgy, chic design. The red carpet veteran is one of the few stars who took a fashion risk and it certainly paid off.


Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli Couture 5:


Allison looked every inch the perfect, polished princess and there is nothing that I would change about this outfit, especially the belt – the yellow is amazing!



Amanda Crew in Max Azria Atelier:


Amanda kept it classy in this elegant, lady-like gown. She has sparked interest in me and I’m definitely going to keep an eye on this emerging star’s flawless fashion.


Michelle Monaghan in Giambattista Valli Couture 5:


Sleek, paired back and  modern in this Giambattista Valli gown Michelle Monaghan looked beautiful. I have to say that I am not a fan of her shoes though, but I’ll let her off this once.


Julie Bowen in Peter Som:


Perhaps a tad polarizing, but this look is perfect for the Modern Family star and Julie looks edgy and fun all in one.


Julia Roberts in Elie Saab:


Julia took a fashion risk in this short, sparkly number, but I definitely think it paid off. The bejeweled Elie Saab creation was unlike anything else worn on the carpet and showed off the 46-year-old’s sensational legs amazingly.


Sofia Vergara in Roberto Cavalli:


With regards to Sofia, if it ain’t broke, why fix it? She can rock a mermaid gown like no other and here she is staying true to herself whilst looking like a stylish sex bomb – exactly the way we like her!


Enough of ladies who did really well, now it’s time for the créme of the crop and to discuss the stars who were undoubtedly the best of the night. I can tell that you’re obviously very excited at this stage, so to add even more suspense into the fold, I’m going to show you my top 3 beginning with number 3. Working my way to the highly coveted top spot on my list let’s start here.

3: Camila Alves in Zuhair Murad’s Resort 2015:

Camilla Alves

Not only is Camila the envy of every woman in the world with Matthew McConaughey on her arm, but she also oozes sex appeal and sophistication both of which are highlighted in this look. The model and designer personified perfection in this stunning Zuhair Murad’s Resort 2015 floor-length gown with an unfathomable number of cut-outs. Stylish, sexy and striking are only 3 of the words that come to mind when describing this look.


2: Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier:


Yes, this gown is so amazing that it deserves a wide-shot. The talented actress looks every inch a movie star in this utterly ravishly Donna Karan gown. The simple black gown is made especially interesting with the gorgeous white train trailing behind. What makes this look a knock-out, however, are the perfectly placed and sized cut-outs which paired with criss-crossed straps leads to striking geometrics. She was so, so close to achieving the number 1 spot and it is very easy to see why.


1: Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano:


And here we have it, my undoubted number 1 – Sarah Hyland. The 23 year old Modern Family starlet epitomized class, style, elegance and edge, all whilst remaining youthful. This girl has had a fashion revelation and it was so refreshing to see that one can dress graceful and elegant whilst retaining a youthful flare! Wearing a top and skirt to the Emmys is a risky thing to do, especially when it’s a crop-top. The stylish youth pulled it off sensationally, however, and showed everyone that it is OK to dress young, fun and pretty whilst still making a fashion statement. I love everything about this look, from the crisp white and bold coral, to the sliver of skin shown on her mid-drift. The cherry on top has to be her accessorizing though with her hair, make-up and earrings polishing the outfit off perfectly and elevating it to that untouchable level. Have a closer look at her hair and make-up here:




So there you have it, my best ladies of the 2014 Emmy Awards. I have to say that the fashion was outstanding!
