Emmys 2017 Fashion: The Red Carpet Roundup


The 2017 Emmys red carpet was packed with lots of beautiful people in beautiful designer gowns.  Although there were a lot of red carpet hits (and quite a few misses) this year, there were a few stars that stood out from the pack.  Here’s an exhaustive list of the stars who lit up the red carpet along with our picks for best dressed and uhhh, not-quite-so-best-dressed.

Zoe Kravitz

A lot of people liked this Dior dress on her, but this look was not one of my favorites.  She’s gorgeous though, so she pretty much makes anything look good

Samantha Bee

I really wanted to like this Rubin Singer gown on her, but it just doesn’t do it for me….but I still love Samantha Bee.

Yvette Nicole Brown

It’s a clean and elegant look, and this dress looks great on her.

Yara Shahidi

Yara is beautiful in this Prada gown

Viola Davis

BEST DRESSED CONTENDER – Viola Davis is just so classic.  Her look was one of the best ones on the Emmys red carpet this year

Vanessa Kirby

I mean, I like it.  I wish she had added more va-voom to the outfit with some classy accessories, but she still looks good.

Vanessa Bayer

This SNL star is one of my favorites, but this dress is not…

Uzo Abuba

When you got some thick arms, a spaghetti strap isn’t always the way to go.  I like this Salla LaPointe dress, just not on her.  It kinda looks like it’s squeezing her on top.

Tracee Ellis Ross

WTF Tracee, just WFT?!?  I don’t know what stylist told you to wear this dress, but they should be fired….then shot….then fired again.

Thandie Newton

BEST DRESSED CONTENDER – a beautiful classy Jason Wu gown for a beautiful classy woman!

Tessa Thompson

I think this dress was one of those that you either love or hate and I happen to love it.  She’s a beautiful woman and this Rosie Assoulin dress accentuates her well.

Tanika Ray

Sexy red gown on the red carpet, love it!

Susan Sarandon

This is a dress that is appropriate for her look.  It’s beautiful and classy without trying to do too much.

Susan Kelechi Watson

I really like this dress on her.  This look was very close to being one of the Best Dressed Contenders, but some of the others just beat her out.

Sofia Vergara

BEST DRESSED CONTENDER – THIS is what a star looks like!

Shannon Purser

I’m still trying to figure out if I like those embellishments on this gown or not…

Shailene Woodley

Clean, classy, beautiful.

Sarah Hyland

Unfortunately for her, half of her red carpet photos had her Spanx showing, but she still looked amazing in this Zac Posen gown

Sandra Lee

This was a beautiful look for her but this shimmery white gown may have been a little to shiny for the red carpet

Samira Wiley

The actress from The Handmaid’s Tale looked great in this elegant ivory Christian Siriano gown, but is almost looked “too old” for the young star

Ryan Michelle Bathe

I probably would’ve like this a lot more in a different color, but it was cute on her

Robin Wright

I love Robin Wright, and I love House Of Cards, and I love black gowns on the red carpet, but this look….I’m still trying to love……still trying…

Renee Bargh

Doesn’t this looks like one of those bridesmaid dresses from David’s Bridal?

Regina King

Yes Regina, bring it!!

Renee Witherspoon

Sometimes less is more and I love this Stella McCartney blazer dress on Reese

Rashida Jones

She’s a beautiful actress, but this dress just isn’t for her

Priyanka Chopra

BEST DRESSED CONTENDER – When you want to bring some DRAMA to the red carpet, this is what you wear.  This Balmain gown puts here right up there on the best dressed list!

Padma Lakshmi

Ok, nice dress…

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman looked very elegant in this Calvin Klein By Appointment gown

Natalie Morales

It’s a nice dress…I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either

Natalia Dyer

This Vera Wang gown was just a little too much dress for the young star

Nancy O’Dell


Millie Bobby Brown

Yeah, this ballerina look was not my cup of tea

Mandy Moore

This Carolina Herrera gown might have been nice for the prom…….in 1985…..but not for a beauty like Mandy Moore at the 2017 Emmys

Madeline Brewer

A classic and beautiful look!

Louise Roe

Not many people could pull of this dress, but I think it looks great on her

Lilliana Vazquez

This beaded gown looks nice on Lilliana, but probably would have had a bit more “wow” factor in another color

Leslie Jones

Now I loooove me some Leslie Jones, but I really didn’t like this Christian Siriano dress on her. I get it that she’s trying to go sexy to counter the crazy tomboyish persona she’s gotten for herself, but this was just a little too much for her.

Laverne Cox

BEST DRESSED CONTENDER – This is what you wear to the Emmys!  Elegant, flattering, and just beautiful.

Keri Russell

This J. Mendel dress was beautiful on her, just a little too feathery for my taste

Julie Bowen

Those ruffles on the side are not doing it for me

Kate McKinnon

BEST DRESSED CONTENDER – She was a winner at the awards show and she was a winner in this dress!

Julianna Hough

Julianna is a STAR is this gown by Marchesa

Julia Louis Dreyfus

I’m a big fan of black dresses on the red carpet and Julia Louis Dreyfus looks like a winner (6-time winner to be exact) in this strapless black and gold Carolina Herrera gown

Judith Light

Not the most awe-inspiring dress, but I like her confidence in it!

Jessica Biel

BEST DRESSED CONTESTANT – Jessica Biel knows how to bring it on the red carpet!

Jennifer Nettles

An elegant dress that complimented her frame well

Jane Fonda

The Grace and Frankie star looked like a diva in this Brandon Maxwell gown

Issa Rae

This was a beautiful Vera Wang gown worn well by Issa Rae

Heidi Klum

Heidi always looks amazing and this look was no different.  Although some may not like it, I loved the oversized wooden bracelets that accentuated her look.

Giuliana Rancic

Isn’t she a host on Fashion Police?  You would think she’d find herself a better gown since she spends her time judging other people’s fashions…

Gina Rodriguez

Gina is a stunner in this plunging scarlet Naeem Khan gown

Gabrielle Union

BEST DRESSED CONTESTANT – I think we have a winner!! Gabrielle Union f—ing rocked this black sheer lace gown by Zuhair Murad and was easily one of the best looks of the night (if not THE best)

Felicity Huffman

BEST DRESSED CONTESTANT – I love it when stars wear clothes that don’t just look good, but look good on them! Felicity Huffman looked amazing in this form-fitting Tony Ward gown

Evan Rachel Wood

BEST DRESSED CONTESTANT – I love it when stars take fashions risks and this ensemble featuring a Moschino 3-piece wide-legged suit, Neil Lane Jewelry, and Jimmy Choo clutch was a definite winner

Emmy Rossum

Emmy Rossum is the picture of beauty in this strapless black gown

Erin Lim

I’m not quite sure what the concept was behind this dress, but it was not a good one….especially not for the Emmys!

Ellie Kemper

Ok, I like it but I don’t love it, that’s all I can say

Edie Falco

Edie looks fabulous in this gorgeous red gown

Debra Messing

Just a little too much dress for you Debra

Claire Foy

This Oscar de La Renta is not my cup of tea on Claire Foy

Chrissy Metz

This is a nice embroidered Lela Rose gown, but not the most flattering on Chrissy Metz

Chrishell Stause

Simple, strapless, nice.

Cara Buono

I like the idea of this Cristina Ottaviano dress, just not how it looks on her.  It just doesn’t seem to drape very well and looked kinda limp on the red carpet.

Ashley Nicole Black

Uuummmm, no!

Ariel Winter

Ariel is bringing sexy back.  I love everything about this Zuhair Muhad dress except for the fact that I can see her bra through the embellished top.  It takes some of the appeal away from an otherwise amazing gown.

Anna Chlumsky

Anna was a stunner in this silver sequined gown by Sachin & Babi

Anika Noni Rose

BEST DRESSED CONTESTANT – Anika looked like a goddess in this flowing nude gown by Thai Nguyen Atelier

Angela Sarafyan

This is one of those colors that is very risky on the red carpet but Angela Sarafyan wears it oh so well in this Elizabeth Kennedy gown!

Amanda Crew

BEST DRESSED CONTESTANT – Amanda is gorgeous in this sheer form-fitting Michael Cinco gown

Amanda Brugel

Amanda Brugel looks like she was wearing an emmy on her dress – she was a star on the red carpet in this Stephane Rolland Couture gown

Allison Janney

Kinda looks like she wore someone’s wedding dress to the Emmys, doesn’t it

Ajiona Alexus

BEST DRESSED CONTESTANT – Call me crazy, but I absolutely LOVED this white jumpsuit.  The red carpet isn’t always accepting of fashion risk-takers but Ajiona Alexus absolutely nailed it with this one!
