Ashley Judd took to the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards on Sunday evening with a rather comical hairdo.

Dressed in a custom Carolina Herrera raspberry halter gown with a fishtail hem, the bow detail at the back reminded me of Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga gown at the 2007 Oscars.

Now that we’ve covered the dress, on to the hair.

Actually, I have no words. That over-poufed pompadour must be some kind of very bad joke, which would explain why she’s laughing in every picture.

Silver satin Sergio Rossi ‘Chloris’ Swarovski crystal-embellished sandals and Martin Katz jewels completed her look.

Are you laughing with her or at her?
