Emmy Fug or Fab Carpet: Michelle Dockery in Rosie Assoulin


I’m putting this one up to a vote, because although Jessica was not in love with this, I ended up having a fling with it behind the bleachers and I might go wait for it there again because it was kind of a treat.

Please tell Lady Mary how you feel:

Emmys Well Played: Alison Williams in Giambattista Valli


This dress was a good move.

Allison Williams

It’s supremely cool and unusual, like a gift from that friend of yours who always finds the BEST wrapping paper that’s really thick and luxe and striking (for me, that friend is Jessica). Everything about it works on her, and I have to think that floating around in it all night was a pretty spectacular experience. However: I am EXTREMELY NERVOUS about this live Peter Pan she’s undertaking — not because she can’t sing, but because… I don’t know, I almost feel like they should’ve hung up Peter Pan without either Sandy Duncan or Mary Martin. (Although I DO sort of hope it leads her to give herself a dramatic pixie cut, because THAT might look hugely cute on her.) And while I love the story of Peter Pan, I think I enjoy it more in the abstract — that Disney cartoon does not hold up; I tried to watch it with the beans and there are some AWKWARD PARTS INDEED.  But, she can act, she’s got a pretty voice; hopefully it will turn out okay for her. Is it weird that I think they should get Andy Serkis to play Nana the dog? Is it ALSO weird that I almost called him Gary Sinise? It is, and this post has officially gone off the rails. When is Happy Hour?

Peter Pan? Hmm...

Emmys Fug or Fab Weekend: Christina Hendricks


This hair feels a little Low Flow Shower Head — on both of them, actually — but as far as The Wrangle Scale goes, this isn’t terrible from Hendricks:
66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals
It’s appropriately va va voom, and it’s certainly well-accessorized — the bracelet AND the earrings are great, as is her clutch — and the longer I sit with this, the more I feel like I want to give Christina Hendricks the win here. With credit to Marchesa, because god knows they occasionally go off the Ruffled Feathered Deep End, but it might be fun if they were to make a comeback. Why not? It worked for McConaughey.

She looked well-wrangled earlier in the weekend, too:

Emmys Wah-Waaah Played: January Jones in Prabal Gurung


I love this dress. It’s almost as breathtaking to me (if not equally) as the Prabal that Diane Kruger wore. And if Diane Kruger had been in this one, I’d have toasted it with everything in my bar and the neighbors’ besides, because I think she’d have done it every service she has. Conversely, January looks like she’s trying her damndest to make the gown do all the work while she, like, thinks about salad or something. If I were that gown, I would throw a tantrum at her.

Emmy Awards Fug Carpet: Sarah Paulson in Armani Prive


There was a weirdly stale undercurrent to a lot of the Emmy jokes, as if this is 2008 and people are just discovering things like Internet trolls and David Caruso (I mean, CSI: Miami hasn’t been on the air in two years). But I can forgive Seth the latter because perhaps he was inspired by the sight of Sarah:

In about five minutes the cast of CSI: The Only One Left is going to cordon her off and measure the blood spatter.

Over the weekend she trod more familiar territory:

Emmy Awards Unfug It Up Carpet: Kate Walsh in Stephane Rolland


Kate being on a show called Bad Judge is making the puns fly fast and furious in my head. I will keep them to myself.
