Emmys 2018 Red Carpet Fashion: Best & Worst

This Monday, SNL comedians Colin Jost and Michael Che hosted the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Award Show. After reading headlines declaring their performance the unfunniest and least-watched in Emmys’ history, I decided to see if the red carpet fashion was any better. Fortunately, the majority of men and women attending the ceremony dressed in a way that did not make me want to stab out my eyes with a fork and cut them up into tiny pieces. However, there were some stomach-churning looks that did make me wish the Fashion Police was a real institution with real, hard consequences. For your entertainment, I have compiled what I believe to be the best and worst looks of the night below. I have also attempted to add amusing comments which are only meant in good fun. Let’s begin!

Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee Ellis Ross – NO! It looks like she got stuck in a parachute on her way out of the plane carrying Rihanna’s hand-me-downs. Unoriginal & therefore unacceptable.

Alison Brie

Alison Brie – Cheap & tawdry. I know you act on a show that takes place during the 80s, but you don’t need to dress like it.

Joey King

Joey King – Only 19 years old, yet Joey King is almost unmatched in poise & elegance. The gown is exquisitely crafted and colored; a true masterpiece for designer Zac Posen.

Leslie Jones


Laura Dern

Laura Dern – I never knew someone could make so many objectively wrong decisions…I would feel bad for her, but I know she is responsible for this utter catastrophe.

Aidy Bryant

Aidy Bryant – When I was 11, I owned a nightgown that looked exactly like this, except it actually fit me.

Thandie Newton

Thandie Newton – Amazing! Thandie Newton killed it. Look at her face! She knows she killed it. The color, the fit, the design. It’s somehow both classic yet unique. I love it.

Connie Britton

Connie Britton – You’re going to the Emmys, not a barbecue, Connie. Dress like it.

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen – Is she wearing gravel? Icky!

Antoni Rowski

Antoni Porowski – Oh no! Mr. Popper left all his penguins at home…yet he remembered his 80s go-go boots?

Emilia Clarke

Emilia Clarke – This looks like cheap lingerie mixed with a Morticia Addams costume mixed with Hell on Earth.  

Rachel Brosnahan

Rachel Brosnahan – Ugh, too beautiful. She looks absolutely effortless, and her hair and accessories are phenomenal.

Tiffany HaddishTiffany Haddish – It looks like one of those giant rainbow parachutes everyone plays with in 3rd grade…except uglier.

Allison Janney

Allison Janney – Her Oscar should be rescinded for this absolute atrocity! How was she even allowed into the event?! No no no no no!!

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel – Damnnnn, Jessica! She looks incredible. This dress showcases her most attractive features, and she knows it. Pay attention, ladies – this is how you wear clothing. Also, the structured nature of her gown is a welcome contrast to the flowy, soft looks that most women opted for.

Kristin cavallari

Kristin Cavallari – Not even Satan himself could craft an outfit as heinous as this. Kristin, you exemplify the fact that money cannot buy class…or taste…or style….

Michelle Dockery

Michelle Dockery – I love this. It is soft & romantic, and her styling is perfect.

Constance Wu

Constance Wu – Constance, what? It looks like you got in a fight with duct tape, lost, then rolled around in a pile of glitter to console yourself.

TIna Fey

Tina Fey – The lace, the belt, the sparkle…it’s all WRONG! She looks like a misshapen clown, except no one is laughing. Also, did she do her hair 3 minutes before she walked the red carpet???

Joe Keery

Joe Keery – Ew! Is this an actual human being? I am wildly uncomfortable at the thought of sharing a species with this beast.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum – Take this dress back to 2004, where it belongs. You can stay there while you’re at it, Heidi, because that’s also the last time you were relevant.

Carol Kane

Carol Kane – More like Carol Co-Kane because that is definitely what she must have been on when she chose this outfit.

Alexis bledel

Alexis Bledel – At first, I thought this dress was weird-looking, kind of like Alexis Bledel’s husband. Upon closer inspection, however, I think I find it fairly beautiful. The colors and appliqué create a sort of whimsy, and enhance the softness of Bledel’s own features.

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson – ScarJo’s hair and makeup are beautiful, but the dress looks like it’s made of terrycloth. Did she forget to pick a dress so she cut up the nearest bathrobe instead?

Kate Mckinnon

Kate McKinnon – Did she use a slinky as a belt? WTF

Yvonna Orji

Yvonne Orji – Well fitting, classy, and a bit sassy! Bravo, Yvonne.

Sterling K. Brown

Sterling K. Brown – This is sharp as all hell. Sterling is wearin’ that tux, not the other way around.

Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell – Congratulations, Kristen Bell, you made yourself look approximately 1000 years old. I thought this was Susan Sarandon at first, but then I realized even she would know better.

Angela Saragyan

Angela Sarafyan – Divine, ethereal, magical. I don’t know who this woman is, but now I want to. She looks flawless.

Mario Lopez

Mario Lopez – Not even a cast can justify a suit with shorts. I wish he had broken both his legs and stayed home instead.

Best Dressed: Angela Sarafyan

Worst Dressed: Joe Keery
