The Best and Worst Dressed of the Emmy’s 2016 Red Carpet

In case you missed it, the 68th Annual Emmy’s were on ABC Sunday night. Although I do enjoy awards season, I basically just watch for the dreamy designer clothes. For those of you who did not tune into the festivities, I have highlighted my best dressed, worst dressed and biggest trends we saw on the red carpet. Now you won’t miss out on a minute of the couture.




 Like the runways this season at Fashion Week, yellow was all over the red carpet at the Emmy’s. These are some of my favorite daisy hued gowns. Yellow is always a risky color, but I really like that these women took a chance.



These red sirens really brought the heat to the Emmy’s this year. Red is a difficult color to pull off without looking overtly sexy. These women struck the perfect balance of elegance and sex appeal.



Probably my favorite trend this year at the Emmy’s were the black gowns with gothic detailing. Lace, beading, velvet, silk and tight bodices bring this classic color to the next level of chic.



Nothing looks better against the red carpet then some shimmer. These stars took the tricky metallic trend in the correct direction by keeping the colors rich and the makeup minimal.



I love a romantic gown. When you get the chance to wear a red carpet dress you should feel like a princess. That is why I love these ethereal looks. Incorporating ruffles, tulle and creamy colors makes these gowns a dream come true.



For men and women, navy is a big trend for the Fall/Winter season. I love men in blue suits, especially navy, and they were in abundance last night. It is such a great way to update a sometimes unexciting classic tux.

My picks for best dressed will undoubtedly cause some debate. Then again, not many critics have agreed on any dresses this year. That makes this red carpet exciting. I love when a dress causes such a division in taste. That is a sure sign that it was a fashion forward hit.

This year my favorite of the Emmy’s are a combination of classic silhouettes like Laverne Cox and Emmie Rossum, combined with bold risk takers like Sarah Paulson and Michelle Dockery. The only thing better than taking a fashion risk, is when it pays off.



Fortunately, this year the Emmy’s did not have an overwhelming amount of terrible ensembles. That being said, these dresses could not be rationalized. There is a common theme of unflattering and unnecessary silhouettes here. Ill fitting gowns, with too much material or not enough material, can wreak havoc on anyone. These dresses were not on trend and made these beautiful women look drab. However, I have hope that they will knock it out of the park next time.
