Now that baby girl is not a baby anymore, mom gets to watch the Emmy’s uninterrupted (sort of). Wooohooo! Such was the case last night – for the first time in years, Ivan and I could watch the entire ceremony (and enjoy a glass of red) laughing at how clueless we are about current shows (not a bad thing). House of Cards is the only one we have watched but I’m pretty curious about Big Little Lies so will try that one soon. Our preference and time availability have changed so much over the years that we’ve become more careful about what and how much we watch. Many nights we’d rather spend our time laughing and having a good time, so vintage sitcoms are a current favorite. Hubby has been watching Walking Dead behind my back and I can’t say I mind! Give me Frasier any day…
Fortunately, there were plenty of beautiful gowns to keep things interesting last night. There was color like never before, different styles and shapes. I’m very much over the mermaid dress so was happy to see a variety in cuts. I loved Elizabeth Moss in custom Pragal Gurung, although I can’t help but thinking a darker hue would have been even better on her. I adored Robin Wright’s choice of a black strapless sequin, Mrs. Underwood would certainly approve!
Reese Witherspoon looked fabulous as always, Viola Davis is enchanting in an orange silk dress. Jessica Biel, Laverne Cox, Debra Messing and Nicole Kidman were all stunning as usual. As for Jane Fonda, if that is what being 80 looks like, then I’ll have what she’s having!!! She looks incredible!
So here’s my best dressed list of this year’s Emmy, saving the best for last. Let me know what you think!
12 / Jessica Biel in Ralph & Russo
11/ Issa Rae in Vera Wang
10 / Debra Messing in Romona Keveza
I love her so much and couldn’t be more excited about a Will & Grace revival! This dress, while still pretty, is not her best. It provides no contrast to her wonderful hair and I can’t help reminiscing about two past looks that worked better for her:
Anyway… these next two ladies Jessica Lange (69) and Jane Fonda(79) defy aging. Period.
9/ Jessica Lange
8/ Jane Fonda in Brandon Maxwell
7/ Laverne Cox
6/ Viola Davis
5/ Rashida Jones in J Mendel
4/ Nicole Kidman in Calvin Klein Appointment
3/ Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney
2/ Elizabeth Moss in custom Prabal Gurung
and best dressed of them all (in my opinion of course):
1/ Robin Wright in Mugler
