My Emmy Favorites

I am a sucker for awards shows. They usually air when I'm super emotional so I cry at just about every acceptance speech and REALLY cry at every shot of proud spouse/friend/coworker in the audience. Tonight's show was no different, obviously. Many are calling it the "saddest Emmys ever" and I literally lost it during Edie Falco's tribute to James Gandolfini- which is odd because I don't think I've ever watched a movie or TV show starring either of them. That's just how attached I get to awards shows. 

I also really love the fashion- duh. Here's my favorites from the evening [in no particular order]: 

1. Anna Gunn, AKA Skyler White, in Romona Kevesa. I literally gasped when I saw her walk onstage. Her hair and makeup were on point and she looked absolutely radiant. This was particularly pleasing to me because I spent most of Breaking Bad saying "UGH Skyler is the WORST!!" or "UGH Skyler, get a new robe!!" Needless to say, she [Anna AND Skyler] really redeemed herself with this dress. PS... I'm a few episodes behind SO NO SPOILERS PLEASE. 
2. Laura Dern in Naeem Khan. The color, the sleeves, the neckline, and the embellishments. I would wear this to the grocery store if I could. Perfect. 
3. Aubrey Plaza in Marios Schwab. This look may land her on the "Worst Dressed" list, but maybe that's why I love it so?? I'm also crushing on her minimal makeup. She looks fresh and unique- although I could have done without the clutch.

4. Allison Williams in Ralph Lauren. Um, shout out to Allison for having such a simple gown but making such a huge impact. Her hair, makeup, jewelry- all looks so effortless. It's as if this is the exact outfit she'd wear to brunch and no one would question why she was so dressed up- and then at the Emmys, she holds her own in a sea of sequins. Good job.
5. Lena Dunham in Prada. It's no secret I love a bold print. This one caught my eye in a good way. It's very pretty and really reflective of Lena's bright, quirky personality. A lot of women matched their eyeshadow to their gowns this year- while that typically looks horrifying and actually makes me cringe, I think Lena made it work. 
6. Julie Bowen in Zac Posen. This photo doesn't do this dress justice. I saw it on E's "Glam Cam" [something else that makes me cringe, why do you have to have so many camera names?] and you guys, the detailing and fit = absolute perfection. The layers at the bottom were truly beyond. I wish everything I owned had such a perfect ruffle. 

Sorry I'm such a loser and blogged about this moments after the show aired. I just had my laptop out and knew I'd never get to it tomorrow. Did you watch the show? Any loves/hates/surprises? Let's chat in the comments:


  1. Never apologize on this blog again! You are anything but a loser and I enjoyed this post (also while watching the show), I would expect you, a fashion blogger, to share your faves!

    1. You're so sweet!! Thank you for always reading/supporting :)

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one that watches awards shoes as if I personally knew all of them! The girls of "Girls" really knocked it out of the park.

    1. They really did! What did you think of Zosia's?

  3. Holy wow you arent joking with that first dress! Anna Gunn. I dont watch the show so I had no clue who she was (I know, Im the only person in the universe not watching). She as well as the dress are STUNNING!

    1. It took me a few years to get into- but am glad I finally watched!


Thank you for reading! xoKelli
