Creative Emmy Awards Secretly Awesome Carpet: Alan Cumming


Sometimes, you have to just give someone thumbs up for COMMITTING TO A LOOK:

If you decide to wear a plaid suit to the (Creative Arts) Emmys, then WEAR A PLAID SUIT TO THE (Creative Arts) EMMYS, I say, and Alan Cumming is nothing if not goofily delightful in his. I so prefer this kind of thing to the “I’m Kind of Wearing a Tux But Not Really I Decided to Get CRAZY And Wear Something That’s Sort of Traditional Except in VELVET Don’t Judge Me Please Think I’m Special But Not TOO Special” that we so often see from the dudes who want to splash out but don’t want to splash out, you know, QUITE this far. Go big or go home, I always say, and ergo this pleases me. Also pleasing:

The fact that the genius ad folks behind the Old Spice “Man Your Man Could Smell Like” ads won an Emmy makes me feel like at last all is right in the world, not the least because we all got this picture out of it. If only he were on a horse.
