2017 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is our roundup from Sunday’s 2017 Emmy Awards.

Shannon Purser: I felt this was quite a magical, fairytale moment for Shannon. Her custom Sachin and Babi gown was simply breath-taking. Not only in colour, but also in design. The look was styled with Swarovski jewels.

Judith Light: Some might say this Christian Siriano gown is dated, but Judith brings so much energy to the look, that one can’t help but be left in awe.

Samira Wiley: Christian Siriano always looks after the ‘OITNB’ crew. Samira looked beautiful her custom gown inspired by the Resort 2018 gown. The look was styled with a Jimmy Choo clutch, Butani diamond drop earrings, Djula diamond ring, and a Hearts on Fire diamond bracelet.

Chrissy Metz: The ‘This Is Us’ actress described her custom Lela Rose dress as a exciting moment saying she felt like a princess. And I couldn’t agree more. I love the petrol blue hue and smattering of embellishments. This is easily her best red carpet look to date.

Padma Lakshmi: I love Padma, she has great style But there was a “seen in, done it” feel about her Christian Siriano gown. Like many stars on the night she wore a blue ribbon as a symbol of solidarity with ACLU.

Sonequa Martin-Green: The actress was on-trend wearing a red Romona Keveža Fall 2017 gown. The necklace feels like an after-thought though.

Leslie Jones: A larger than life character, needed a epic gown, so up stepped Christian Siriano. What I love about his gowns, are that they always embody the spirit of the wearer, as seen by Judith above.

Marsai Martin: The ‘Blackish’ star looked adorable in her Rubin Singer asymmetrical dress. It appears she’s been taking style tips from her on-screen big sister.

Samantha Bee: I think I’m more entranced by the colour rather than the style of her custom Rubin Singer dress.

Alison Wright: I love the glitz and glam imbued by this Maria Lucia Hohan golden goddess look, even if I’m not totally sold on her hair.

Rhea Seehorn: The violet hue of her Romona Keveža gown made me go weak at the knees.

Shannon Woodward: I love the blush-hue of her Maria Lucia Hohan gown which she styled with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch.

Vanessa Bayer: Her infectious smile was just as pretty as her Zac Posen gown.

Kyra Sedgewick: This plum lace Elie Saab Fall 2017 gown oozed both elegance and sensuality.

Susan Kelechi Watson: Serving up a high dose of glam, the actress shimmed onto the red carpet wearing a Cristina Ottaviano Fall 2017 sculptural design.

Rachel Bloom: I wished this Gucci dress had a black rather than nude lining on the bust.

    Chrissy Metz looks gorgeous, I lover her Lela Rose dress, it suits her perfectly.

    Great look for Judith Light too, minus the black pumps, they look dated and “heavy”.

    I know the sheer dresses are played out, but Leslie Jones looks beautiful. One of her best outings. I like the colors on Shannon Purser and Susan Kelechi Watson, but no one else stands out for me. Mostly forgettable, unoffensive looks.

    Nothing spectacular or BDOTW worthy, but everyone looks nice.

    FC can I just tell you how much I appreciate what you do! You and your team have provided the most amazing coverage of one event after another! I can only imagine how much work must go into all of this and I cannot tell you how much joy it brings me. Your critiques are interesting and sometimes hilarious but are never unkind or hurtful and I appreciate that. I am a huge fan and I look forward to every post. I for one, am very thankful that you chose to come back and continue with your blog – it is the best!

      Bless you. It does take a lot of work, but it’s a labour of love.

      I have a wonderful team who share my passion and I am glad you do too.

      I’m pacing myself this around, I used to drive myself crazy if I didn’t get something up first and the love became a chore. The time out helped me rediscover that love.

      Thanks for showing your appreciation. It means a lot.

    Shannon ‘s look is a good surprise, I wish it was a column gown. She looks amazing in it
    Rhea’s dress is simple but the color does the job

    I think you missed Natalia Dyer from stranger Things. I really liked her dress.

    • Ingrid September 18, 2017 at 15:59 #

      Sorry. Just saw her on another post. My bad 😄.

    Shannon – Great color; she looks fab
    Judith – She can do no wrong….LOVE her
    Samira – Elegant
    Chrissy Metz – I can’t so I’ll keep my mouth shut
    Padma – AWFUL
    Sonequa – Simple elegance
    Leslie Jones – NO NO NO NO
    Marsai – too mature
    Samantha & Alison – NO
    Rhea & Sharina – Lovely
    Vanessa & Kyra – NO

    I agree that Rachel Bloom’s dress would have been great with a black lining.

      What’s wrong with Chrissy Metz and Vanessa ???

      • meme September 18, 2017 at 17:15 #

        I just didn’t like Vanessa’s dress, that’s all. I’m keeping my mouth shut about Chrissy.
