Emmy Awards Been There, Fugged That Carpet: Edie Falco

I’ve gone on record before as liking this dress.

The problem is, though, that I’ve already seen this dress. And this is the EMMYs, not some random cocktail party or premiere, and that is multiple statuette-snagger Edie Falco — who is one of those people who could show up on an HBO stage and sneeze for ten minutes and get nominated. It doesn’t matter how good her dress is; somebody should be giving her a fresh outfit, not a dress that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the Grammys back in February and then Brooklyn Decker trotted out at a Battleship event. BATTLESHIP, y’all. Edie Falco is better than sloppy Battleship seconds, no matter how tasty they seem.

Also, her face is better than whatever that hair is doing to it. The end.

    The host of the British equivalent of Dancing With The Stars wore this exact dress on the launch show, which probably says it all really.

    • Neil

      Yep, any dress Tess Daly wears is a pretty definite fug. If she worked in the US, I guarantee she’d be on this site all the time.

  2. McLisa

    It’s official. I hate this dress no matter who’s wearing it.

    • Leah

      Me too. I think it looks comic-book-ish.

      • anny

        Me three. Everyone knows who designed it, right? She Who Hates Everyone, the Butcher of the Runway: Ms. Stella McCartney.

    • AmandaD

      Me four. Instead of slimming, I think it just makes the wearer look wide, which should be a nigh impossible feat with these wearers.

      • Emma

        Agreed. I think these optical illusion dresses always make the wearer blockish and athletic, even the curvy and feminine Kate Winslet. I wouldn’t be sorry if I never saw one again.

    I get what you’re saying about Edie Falco being the bomb and she deserves an original dress. But strikes me as someone who’s not a fussy, high maintenance person, and if she really likes this dress, why not wear it? I’ll even go out on a limb and guess that she bought this dress herself in a regular store and didn’t get it through a stylist.

  4. Big Noise

    That hair –ugh. She looks like she went to yoga or pilates and had to choose what hygiene step to skip so that she could make it to the ceremony on time. And the dress is meh.

  5. Shiitake

    Great fit for an ugly dress.

  6. Helen

    The sad part is, I think Edie wore it best!

    But it’s a little late…

    And I agree, the hairstyle is doing nothing for her.

  7. Nancy

    There’s too much Gimmick with this dress for it to be classic or stand any test of time. It’s like a one hit wonder.

  8. Brooke

    I want to reach through the computer screen and yank those toothpick-looking bangs out of her pretty face. Why, Edie? Why??? For crying out loud, if the hair isn’t cooperating, just slick that business back, spray it down and call it done. I can’t even see the dress.

    The more times I see this dress, the firmer my conviction that it’s an abomination becomes. It looks like a cheap, silly, little-kid halloween costume, a la “I’m going to stick my head throught the space between the top of this dress and the hanger, and then put on my Buck Rogers belt and run around with it flapping around my front! It’s so funny!!”

    If I actually liked the dress on her (of those wearing it I only liked it on Goop) I’d say good for her! I hate all this “everybody must wear a brand new dress to every award show” crap, if you like something then wear it!

  11. Sajorina

    This is a Badly Played! I liked the other versions of this dress on Gwyneth & Brooklyn, but I have to FUG Edie!

  12. Luz

    i hate this dress with the fire of a thousand burning suns. One of the fugliest EVER.

  13. Vandalfan

    It’s the best of the three iterations, but that does not make it any less McCart-fug.

  14. cc

    I’m not really into this dress. Its too simple in its conception, wear this to look skinnier. Like there’s no concept or thought behind it so it just looks boring and unimaginative.
    Also that hair. What.

  15. horsefeathery

    i can’t believe people are still wearing this ugly-ass dress. Stella McCartney needs to be banned. She has completely lost all sense of style.

  16. Megan

    Hair: Terrible.

    Dress: She is killing it. I love the dress on her. Too bad it’s been done before.

  17. Lily1214

    I’ve noticed Stella McCartney Does make mistakes from time to time. This gown is really unflattering on anyone.

  18. Michael

    and what is with the wonder woman belt. It does not work with this dress at all. It reminds me of Diana Prince’s scuba suit from the late 70′s…
