To be frank, the 66th Prime Time Emmy Awards was kind of a snooze-fest. As anticipated, Breaking Bad and Modern Family took home most of the awards, the jokes were meh, the speeches were predictable, and it lasted for three hours. It wasn’t all bad though. The host of the evening, Seth Myers, had a funny bit about HBO and Bryan Cranston unexpectedly laid a heeby-geeby inducing wet one of Julia-Louise Dreyfus.
Per usual, my favorite part of the evening was the fashion. After watching the show, I am of the belief that every man in attendance was given a mandatory black, satin lapel memo. I’m also quite certain that Warby Parker and whoever is famous for making bow ties was thrilled that the George Burns look made a come back. The women however, were much less organized in their attire. There was lots of fabric –particularly in the form of mermaid gowns–mostly shiny, some in red, some in shades of blue, or green…sigh. Wasn’t great people, wasn’t great.
And because I could think of only one way to entertain myself during yet another one of Jim Parsons’ acceptance speeches, I put together a list of totally made up – I mean, totally legit — fashion superlatives ranging from the Best to the Best of the Worst at this year’s Emmys Awards.
