This year’s Emmys were basically one big lesson in disappointment. The show was boring, the speeches were awkward (Michael Douglas, I’m looking at you), and were it not for the incomparable Neil Patrick Harris and that badass dance number, I probably would have given up and switched back to football. But of all of the disappointing aspects of the show, I have to say, the fashion took the boring cake. From ridiculous potato sacks, to steam-punk monstrosities, it was honestly hard for me to compile a best-dressed list. That list is so sparse; I almost just scrapped it all together. But, alas, I was able to patch together a rather unbalanced list of winners and losers (fashion-wise, of course) from the 65th Emmys. I found that for this show, I disagree quite a bit with the crew at E!’s Fashion Police. This is really quite rare for me, as our opinions typically coincide. First on our list of mismatched opinions is Anna Gunn. Anna Gunn:

I thought she looked beautiful. I liked her dress and the contrasting fabric and pattern. The form of the Romona Keveza gown made her look even more statuesque than usual, and her makeup and hair were flawless. I was so happy to see her hair in a slightly mussed up-do, as opposed to the side-swept, half-bob that was so very popular that night.     Sarah Hyland:

Last month, PopWrapped wrote about who we were excited to see walk the red carpet at this year's Emmys. One of the starlets mentioned was Sarah Hyland. My exact words about Hyland were: “…I would like to see her leave her comfort zone a little bit. She loves the earthy, nude flowing look; and while I am normally a firm believer in the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality, that doesn’t apply to fashion.” Obviously Sarah is a huge fan of PopWrapped, because she took my wise advice to heart! She completely changed her look and really went for a more mature, severe look than her typical goddess personification. She looks gorgeous and fierce in this forest and black CH Carolina Herrera gown. Her dark lips and smokey eyes pull the look together perfectly. I have no critiques! Edie Falco:

I love when a veteran actress steps on to the red carpet and shames women half her age. This is exactly what Edie did in this cobalt Escada gown. While I may have cut that halter a little bit straighter to emphasize Edie’s beautiful figure and broad shoulders, and maybe put the slit a bit more to the side, the gorgeous color completely cancels those gripes out. When she was up on stage memorializing James Gandolfini, I could not take my eyes off her. And while, yes, it was partly because she gave a moving speech about one of my favorite actors; it was mostly due to the fact that she looked so beautiful in that blue that I could not turn away. Her soft hair and makeup were the perfect additions to this look, and those sparkling jewels at her wrists and ears gave it an air of class. Brava, Edie! You were stunning!    Kaley Cuoco:

I’m a little strange, and am not normally a big fan of Kaley Cuoco. There is just something about the way she talks that grates on me. Not to mention, I’m possibly the only person in the world who just straight up does not like The Big Bang Theory. But I give credit where credit is due, and Kaley is due for some credit for this gorgeous Vera Wang creation. The maroon color goes perfectly with Kaley’s sun kissed skin, and that sheer panel is just enough sex appeal to give it a bit of a punch. She is not showing any leg or any cleavage, and she still looks sexy. THIS is how you do it, people! She pulls the look together with soft beach waves and minimal makeup and accessories. She looks flawless. WINNER: Tina Fey!

Who saw this one coming? I could weep with joy over how far Tina has come fashion-wise. She looks smoking hot. I mean not just beautiful, classy, stunning, but HOT! Her body in this dress is unreal. Seriously, Liz Lemon; you need not don expensive denim ever again to get your butt looking good. Instead, I demand that you wear gowns every single day that fit you like this Narciso Rodriguez stunner. That cobalt is the perfect color on you. (I’ve realized that cobalt is a great color on EVERYONE, so stars: take note!). The soft, flowing hair lets the dress do the talking and the gold jewelry brings the entire look together. This is minimalism at its very finest, people. Tina, we are not worthy. And, now, we go to the extensive worst dressed list. I hope you’re ready for this; it’s going to be a long road… Heidi Klum:

This is another instance where I disagree with Fashion Police. They hailed Heidi for taking a risk and for her constant ability to rock high-fashion pieces. And while I do give it to the golden goddess for always taking risks, I feel that this one did not pay off. That ridiculous choker portion of the gown gives Heidi a Trekkie feel. I’m just waiting for her to ask Tim Gunn to “beam her up.” This color does nothing for her, and her slicked back hair is too severe for that gorgeous face. All in all, I say “fail.” Claire Danes:

Yet another example of FP and I not seeing eye-to-eye. I thought she looked terrible. First of all: somebody PLEASE get this girl a cheeseburger. I mean, seriously. One should not be able to see one’s bones protruding from their chest. And speaking of chest…Claire: you do not have the bust to pull a dress like this off. There is nothing wrong with being flat-chested, but why flaunt it? She looked sickly. Her makeup was too heavy, and her hair is, well. It’s bad. That is not a flattering look on her. I believe that high-definition televisions are an actress’ worst nightmare. You can’t hide anything, and Claire needed some serious t-zone attention. For shame, Claire. For shame. Connie Britton:

Ew. Just. Ew. This gown is hideous. But, again, Fashion Police thought it was killer. The only explanation I can come up with is that George went temporarily blind. This dress looks like drapes that somebody unearthed from a plantation attic. The heavy greenish velour material is inappropriate for a September awards show, and that gold inlay looks uncomfortable and tacky. Scarlett O’Hara is rolling over in her grave right now. If you’re going to take a cue from the queen of the Southern Bells, at least pick a nice set of drapes for Mammy to turn into a gown. After all, a girl has to have her standards. Oh, and, Connie? We get that you have beautiful blonde flowing locks, but how about mixing it up? You’re getting a little too old for all that hair. Maybe a change would do you good. January Jones:

Dear January: You look like a doily. That is all. Amanda Peet:

I have only one question for Amanda Peet: WHAT IN THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?! You just. You look. Well. You look ridiculous. You look disheveled, uncomfortable, mad, hot, and just all around, a mess. Or, as my lovely friend Ben said: "She looks like she attended the three day affair with the cast of American Horror Story: Coven in an underground lair and forgot to change."  Not cool, Amanda. Not. Cool. Betsy Brandt:

Betsy, you knew your show had a pretty solid chance of winning. Ergo, you knew you had a pretty solid chance of getting on stage. And still you chose THIS?! This is a dress that would befit somebody…wait. Scratch that. This is a gown that would befit a trash heap. Terrible. The hair, the dress, all of it. Epic fail. Lena Dunham:

In an effort to save space, I am going to take this straight to my pick for worst dressed. I could honestly continue this list and add about six more people to the worst-dressed club, but I feel like it’s time to wrap this party up. My choice is no surprise. Lena Dunham, you look a fool. I mean, literally, you look like a circus clown. Your makeup is stupid, your hair is stupid, and that…is that a dress? Are we REALLY going to qualify that as a dress? Perhaps some flocked wallpaper would be a better description. I get that you like to distinguish yourself as “not your typical Hollywood starlet,” but what I don’t get is why that has to translate to ugly. It’s like she’s flat-out trying to look ridiculous. Well, if that’s the case…congratulations! Mission accomplished! Honorable Mentions: I’m giving this year’s honorable mentions to Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in their adorable matching Burberry suits. I mean, really. Could these besties be any more precious? I don’t think so.
