Emmys Well Played: Lena Headey

It feels like a damn miracle that all this asymmetry works, but it really does

Lena Headey

She has the right touch of bad-ass attitude, skepticism, great posture, and glow. I wonder if it was fun sitting next to her. I imagine, for no informed reason at all, that she’d be full of amusing asides about Julia Roberts needing to Sit Down And Be Quiet, or why Jimmy Kimmel yapped for so long when he wasn’t the host, or whether Sofia Vergara needs to learn to be a slightly worse sport so that she avoids indignities like having to stand on a revolving dais in the name of letting the head of the Emmys be “funny.” And then threatening the seat fillers a la Game of Thrones, just so they can feel like they had a proper Hollywood evening.

Emmys Well Played: Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

This is both TOTALLY predictable, but also relaxingly fab:

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

There is something to be said for knowing what REALLY works on you and just sticking with it. Not everything has to be a statement. Although I guess this technically IS a statement, and that statement is, “I really love Tadashi Shoji.”

Something about this parade is weirdly soothing. I’m so relaxed right now.

Emmys Well Played: Heidi Klum in Zac Posen


This is a nice change of pace for Heidi Klum AND Zac Posen both:

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

It’s so elegant and demure from Heidi — who, as you will recall, tends to go Mostly Naked for awards shows — but also understated and streamlined for Zac. As I believe I said over at The Cut, maybe this is actually a match made in heaven. (Although, frankly, Michael Kors might have been good on her, too, and she didn’t wear him all that much either. The legs want what they want.)

Emmys Well Played: Teyonah Parris in Christian Siriano

She is awesome on Mad Men — with not nearly enough to do, in my opinion — and she is awesome on the red carpet.

This is so cheerful and awesome, like a popsicle on a sweltering day, but without the fear that someone will leave it on your couch and let it melt into a sticky ruinous mess. Kerry Washington really ought to throw out Miuccia Prada’s number and plug in Christian’s instead.

Emmys Weekend Fugs and Fabs: Cat Deeley


Unfortunately, I think the actual Emmys red carpet look was the worst of the bunch.
