Emmys Fugs and Fabs: Women in White


We covered some already, like Tracee Ellis Ross and The Lady Dockers, but in all there were surprisingly few ladies who went the Leia route.

Emmys Well Played: Judith Light in Alexandra Vidal


Judith needed better lipstick, but I can’t suggest that in any kind of real way, because she is the boss.

I love that she’s serving some semi-contorted red-carpet posing drama. She wears it so much better than the pipsqueaks like Lea Michele. You have to earn your diva stripes in the trenches. Speaking of which: We live in a reboot culture. Fuller House is a thing that not only exists but is returning for another season. Whither a new Who’s The Boss? You KNOW Tony Danza is free. Alyssa Milano is around, Leah Remini and Halle Berry will obviously agree to reprise their roles from when they made that Living Dolls spinoff, and Katherine Helmond is still alive to play Mona. NOW IS THE TIME, AMERICA.

Emmys Fugs and Fabs: Women in Black


Pantone colors come and go, but the Little Black Dress — or the Big Black Dress, or the Marginally Sized Black Dress, or the Patterned Dress That’s Predominantly Black — is here to stay.

What the Fug: Liberty Ross at the Emmys


This is basically the Real Housewives Reunion Meltdown Spectacular version of Lady Edith’s dress.

Do not try to unwrap this present. She WILL flip a table. And that’s just her warm-up.

Emmy Fug or Fab: Emily Ratajkowski in Zac Posen


As we wrote for Cosmo, this dress feels very much like Emily taking a note.

Emily Ratajkowski

This could not be more antithetical to the black nipple suspenders. (That dress looks like what Kristen Bell said she had to do to her chest UNDERNEATH her Emmy gown.) It is replete with fabric. And some of it is very pretty. Satin, though, is unforgiving, as we all know. It can pucker at the slightest provocation, and so the closer I peer at the darts and seams in this, the more I frown at them. And the bodice has such an odd shape to it. It makes her chest look like… a pair of purplish pears, tied at the top with a bow. Or one of those 3D honeycomb paper decorations that start flat until you open them out (what are those even called?). It’s such an elegant improvement over her recent games of peekaboo that I WANT to love it unreservedly, but… you know. How often do I ever love a gown unreservedly? I’m PICKY, y’all.

Emmy Weekend Fugs and Fabs: The Modern Family Cast


I may be tired of Modern Family on a general level, at least this gang’s style is always evolving.

Emmys Who Caped It Better: Natasha Lyonne or Kaitlin Doubleday


I suspect that, in an actual ring, Natasha would twist Kaitlin into a pretzel. Let’s see if she can top her in an entirely non-physical poll battle. Oh, the suspense.

Natasha Lyonne

Objectively, for me, this Sally LaPointe dress is wacky. Natasha looks like she chopped up a bedsheet on a dare. But she also looks very pretty with that great hair, and she’s braceleted, and her Noted Kook aura clicks very well with what is essentially one half of a very lazy ghost costume. So while I can’t say I like this, I WILL say that I like HER, and that this outfit may therefore have found its best possible chance of not winning any Worst Dressed awards. That counts as a happy ending, right?

Kaitlin’s version of this is more refined:
