Many celebrities could not miss out on the 71st year of the Emmy Awards. How did they look on the red carpet, who surprised us and who simply can't dress well at all? The uncompromising Fashion Upstream rates the celebrity outfits!
The American singer, actress, model and dancer Zendaya bet on a sexy gown by Vera Wang, which made her one of the best dressed stars that night. Even though the emerald-colored model revealed a lot, it remained shrouded in exciting mystery. We must praise the hairdo, the choice of jewelry and the beautiful shoes. This simply works from head to toe!
A dark blue dress by Valentino worn by one of the lead stars of the series Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke, was a no less dazzling affair. The beautiful brunette definitely proves that even if you aren't endowed with voluptuous C-cups, you can pull off a plunging neckline down to the navel too - you just have to know how to go about it!
The charming Dutch actress Carice van Houten, who starred as the Red Priestess Melisandre of Asshai on Game of Thrones, put on a cheerful piece by Roland van der Kemp. It's not a typical red carpet dress, but it's got some spice, we're into it and Carrie van Houten really stood out in it.
A luxurious gown worthy of the Oscars, Emmys or any other prestigious award ceremony. That's the impression given by the purple dress by Cong Tri, worn by the young American actress Julia Garner. We see nothing wrong with the beautiful dress, though Julia could have passed on the black sandals on platforms that are a bit too high, which do not go well with the romantic dress at all.
The second youngest Kardashian dressed in a floral dress decorated with latex by the British designer Richard Quinn. It's daring, and while such a dress couldn't be pulled off by just anyone, the sexy model Kendall Jenner definitely did so.
We expected a lot from the provocateur Kim Kardashian. So she surprised us with her minimalistic black dress with a train. The dress by Vivienne Westwood is a gorgeous thing, but Kim got a little lost this time among the plethora of spectacular gowns.
The American actor Justin Hartley literally swept us off our feet! A suit by the Italian brand ISAIA fits him perfectly and we must compliment the choice of shoes too. Everything is right here.
He didn't impress us years ago when he was breaking ladies' hearts as Dawson Leery, and he didn't impress us at the Emmy Awards either. Actor James Van Der Beek has either decided to experiment, or has hired a really terribly drunk stylist for the Emmys. We cannot explain his choice of outfit in any other way.
When two people do the same thing, it might not yield the same result. The American actress wore a beautiful Dior dress, but unfortunately for her it would look better on a hanger than it did on her. Unlike Emilia Clarke, Kristen Bell looked like she'd left her breasts at home - pity!
Many celebrities bet on a combination of pink and red on the night of the the Emmy Awards ceremony. Actress Mandy Moore was no exception, wearing a dress designed by Brandon Maxwell. But she didn't really blow us away with her choice. The top of the dress looks like a silk dressing gown that Mandy had just decided to toss onto the floor...
British actress Gwendoline Christie, who portrayed Brienne of Tarth in the Game of Thrones series, arrived at the Emmys in a model by Gucci inspired by Jesus. It may not be our cup of tea, but it looks good on Gwendoline. Do you think she'd look better in a model with a sexy slit, or a mini dress? We don't!
When you have a body like Chrissy Metz, you have to really put a lot of thought into what you wear in order not to look like a square paper box of cereal. The dress by Christian Siriano might be a chic thing, but it doesn't look good on the American actress. It emphasizes the extra weight, especially where it shouldn't...
What I like about the United States is that they know how to praise themselves. Sure, we know how to do that too, but they pat themselves on the back several times a year. The Emmys are an example of that. The producers, directors and actors at least have a reason to go to work over there. Because the image of the red carpet is right around the corner at any given time.
Another thing that I like is the thorough preparation for the red carpet event. I don't want to say that our starlets never made any preparations for Karlovy Vary or the Czech Lion, but over there it's a bit more... pompous.
The designers that are fighting over the chance to dress the prime candidate for the award have really well-known names and the prices of their products could feed the entirety of Africa. Moreover, the movies that the stars promote there are really nice to watch. You can't always say that about the Czech productions...
Kim Kardashian is making me laugh once again. Like, sorry, but I think this chick shouldn't be there. I never understood why the US loves her or hates her so much. As far as I know, she never starred in anything that you could play on television before 10 pm, because you aren't supposed to air porn before then, or in anything that she didn't earn a Golden Raspberry for. This girl might have her place on the red carpet, but at a completely different event.
I think Vivienne Westwood is a a great woman with beautiful ideas, and if I were her I wouldn't even lend anything to this plastic doll, let alone sell her something. Somebody may have hinted to Kim that her size is a little more substantial, and that black is slimming, and I thank them for that. Those giant swing ride chains on her throat that were fashionable around here in the 80s, and that cross on her throat, I rather won't even comment on that. If she's found God, I'm genuinely sorry to whatever church she goes to, they should burn it down.
Purple has always looked cheap. Not all shades of purple of course, but this one does. Julia Garner's got a really unhealthy complexion on top, so that missing sleeve really is a problem. I had to put on sunglasses when looking at this picture, otherwise I'd go blind. I feel like her stylist must have recently undergone a botched eye surgery, I cannot explain this combination any other way.
The person I really have to applaud is Zendaya, though. Of course I feel incredible resentment towards her too, because this girl with golden skin and the body of a goddess drives me mad every morning at the gym. Not everyone can afford to wear a gown by Vera Wang. Even though she must have at least C-cups herself, I say no! These AA's are simply gorgeous and Vera Wang makes even nothing look like a lot.
I find Chrissy Metz hilarious. Whatever she wears, it's going to be a tragedy. She's simply so huge that she'll always look like a Christmas bauble, just with a different pattern. Somebody would say that it's this outfit specifically that makes her fat rolls more noticeable. Excuse me, what outfit would cover all that fat up? It doesn't matter anyway, because she's herself and her smile seems sincere at least... Thumbs up for the bravery.
This year's Emmy Awards ceremony was a success, be it in the choice of winners, or the fashion. There are much fewer disasters than there would be on the red carpet over here. I hope that our celebrities were watching, learned something and will demonstrate it at the Czech Lion Awards.
