Best and worst dressed from the Emmys 2017

By Melissa.

The red carpet drought we've been going through these past few months has been hard, but the Emmys arrived to entertain us. We can always count on them to recharge us with a balanced share of dresses. This year we saw an equal ammount of beautiful, glamorous looks and outfits that should have never left the atelier.

Best dressed

Nicole Kidman in Calvin Klein

Jen didn't fall in love as deeply as I did with this dress, but I was completely stunned by its beauty. A classic silhouette with interesting details and a winner color. The playful detail in the shoes —beautifuly evident to all— gave it a memorable touch.

It is worth noticing that this ankle length is not easy to carry: a few inches can make a difference between appropriate and inappropriate for a gala (more on this when we see Michelle Pfiffer).

Viola Davis in Zac Posen

Again with the color theme, nothing makes Viola Davis' skin look more beautiful than this dreamy orange. Flattering silhouette and structure bring out her figure and best attributes. We love it!

Shailene Woodley in Ralph Lauren

More rich colors to make me happy. This gorgeous dark green made everyone look at Woodley (also the plunging neckline, very well executed). We would like a more polished hairstyle and a bit more color on the lips to make this a perfect look.

Michelle Pfeiffer in Oscar de la Renta

She needed just a few more centimeters in the skirt to get this dress to the correct length, because this looks way too casual for a gala. HOWEVER, it is so beautiful we HAD to have it on this list.

Felicity Huffmnan in Tony Ward

I already lost count on the times I've wished to enter my fifties with her grace. Not only does she have a killer body, but she also knows how to dress it. It is such a pleasure to see her on every red carpet.

Millie Bobby Brown in Calvin Klein

Just like Kiernan Shipka back in the day, we love seeing this little girl on the red carpet. Whoever is in charge of her outfits is doing an excellent job choosing elegant and age-appropriate looks. We are excited to see how her style will evolve through the years.

Worst dressed

Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney

Nice color, good silhouette, strong and flattering structure. Everything is fine, except for the fact that it's A MINISKIRT ON A BLACK TIE EVENT. It is so wrong for the occasion that I almost didn't notice the lame hairdo.

Ariel Winter in Zuhair Murad

This is probably the last time we feature her on a red carpet post. Not because we have any hopes she will improve (that ship sailed a long time ago) but because she makes the same mistakes over and over again (just like Heidi Klum). Too tight, too naked: elegance left the building as soon as she put on that dress. Actually, with her, elegance has never really entered the building.

Tessa Thompson in Rosie Assoulin

Welcome to a new episode of 'Frankendress': pleats, metallic finish, rainbow, color-block and cut-outs. The only thing missing in this outfit is a hem made of LED lights.

Ajiona Alexus

Welcome to yet ANOTHER episode of 'Frankendress: Bridal Edition', starring Ajiona Alexus as the bride, the groom and the cake at the same time.

Tracee Ellis Ross in Chanel

Jeniffer says: "It may be Chanel, but it is still WRONG".

Claire Foy In Oscar de la Renta

The main reason she is on this list is not the design of the dress per se, but the fit. It is a beautiful jumpsuit, but it does nothing for her body. The proportions are all wrong and she ends up looking short, with a short torso, daddy longlegs, and a huge head.

Special mentions

Debra Messing in Romona Keveza

So close, yet so far away. We are incredibly sad that a dress with such a classic and beautiful design, goes to red carpet hell for having the most hedious fabric on the planet. Just looking at it, all shiny, loud and scandalous, gives me a headache.

Lea Michele in Elie Saab

Never underestimate hair. For example: her do is so incredibly lame, I almost didn't realize she has a truly gorgeous gown in a marvelous color.

Jessica Biel in Ralph and Russo

Even though is a little... too "mature" for someone like her, the dress is, without a doubt, lovely. However, it needs to loose the train and the 80's hairstyle.

Mandy Moore in Carolina Herrara

She may not be in the best dressed list because the outfit is not that memorable, but we are glad to see a dress in black and white that does something interesting in terms of silhouette.

Angela Sarafyan in Elizabeth Kennedy

Excellent color choice and good use of volume, although the detail in the sleeves is not as well executed as it could be.

Evan Rachel Wood in Moschino

Absolutely wonderful. She really knows how to wear a suit to the red carpet (not the first time she does it). Altough there are a few minor details that bother us: for me, the extreme width of the legs of the pants, and for Jen, the "excess of buttons". Still, it is a winning look.

Zoe Kravitz in Dior Haute Couture

Jen loved it, I didn't. And not because of the dress itself, but because I think it is not right for her. I feel they are incompatible and she would look ten times better in something more edgy.
