Vera Farmiga In Theyskens’ Theory – 2013 Emmy Awards

Vera Farmiga In Theyskens' Theory - 2013 Emmy Awards

Vera Farmiga was one of the few who wore black at the 2013 Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Sunday.

The actress donned a custom Theyskens’ Theory gown that had plenty of drama and volume – dare I say too much volume.

I was fascinated by the detailing, which included a leather-and-metal belt, leather panels, and a sexy open back that she styled with Fred Leighton jewels and a metallic box clutch. Under that skirt, she wore Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina Strass’ black satin pumps.

Yet more volume via her bouffant and a matte pink lip colour completed her look.

Is there too much going on or does she make it work?

    Not liking the sheer sleeves. But something about this look is very daring. I kinda like this.

      Her eyes are drop dead gorgeous. I might add.

    The back is tacky. The front is…off-kilter. I appreciate the effort but am not thrilled.

      Agreed. The front is ill-fitted and too voluminous and the back is over-styled. She does look great, though.

    Her face is lovely – the dress is a mess!

    Had she worn this to the Met gala this year, it would have worked. I love her and the hairstyle is killer, but the whole look and the volume of the dress is just not appealing.

    Vera I adore you. But honey, I just can’t. Not a good choice.

    seems to be a lot of sleeves lately… not really diggin’ this look…

  7. Aline September 23, 2013 at 06:05 #

    There’s just too much fabric.

    • kane September 23, 2013 at 07:10 #

      Agreed. One of the lesser black dresses of the night.

    bad fit, frumpy… am disappointed Theyskens is my favourite designer. The ruching on the waist and the anelling on the bust and the sleeves and all details do not flow together… no harmony in the design… it is a mess.

    It should have been sleeveless and the skirt less voluminous.

    I LOVE THIS LOOK! She totally pulls it off for me.

    This might be my first comment, but I have been visiting your site for years!

    Quick, someone call for help, this dress is eating Vera alive!! She’s swimming in this huge black truly awful dress. She’s so beautiful and this is so fugly. One of my worst dressed along with Amanda Peet.

  12. Rebecca Z September 23, 2013 at 16:27 #

    Another beautiful woman who just can’t get it right. She and Amanda Peet need to get together an hire a stylist that can find interesting and rich looks to compliment their beauty.

    Take away the belt (that does nothing but bunch up the dress), give her loose, sexy waves and younger, slightly more casual accessories (or none), add some glow to her skin and this might just work.
