The 2018 Emmy's - A Lackluster Red Carpet
Is it just me or were the 2018 Emmy Awards a snooze fest?! From the Red Carpet to the hosts and the presenters, I was left feeling quite bored to be honest. It was a struggle to even find enough Red Carpet looks worthy of making my favorites list. Talk about disappointing!
You know who didn't leave the evening disappointed? Amy Sherman-Palladino. Is there an award she didn't win?! While I wasn't a fan of her outfit per say (she does have her quirks), I managed to find a handful of looks I did like from last night.
Here are my favorites from the 2018 Emmys Red Carpet.
Sadie Sink in Hiraeth Collective.
Talk about little fashion icon! She looks so polished and sweet, just as a sixteen-year-old should look on the red carpet. I love the contrast of this pure white up against her red hair and that bold red lip. Yes girl you work that carpet!

Sarah Paulson in Oscar de la Renta.
I will never turn down my nose at feathers - I mean look at this masterpiece! Slicked back hair was very big on the carpet this Emmys season with clean, minimalist makeup which in this case really allowed this dress to shine. This particular neckline is quite unique too and beautifully shows off her decolletage.

Sandra Oh in Ralph and Russo.
In addition to the slicked back hair and minimalist makeup as seen on many celebs this Red Carpet go around, necklines were also a major trend. Shoutout to all my smaller chested ladies out there who can pull off these necklines - you go Sandra Oh! This color is stunning against her alabaster skin and the cutout detailing around the midsection as well as her arms is a simple but beautiful addition. I could have done without the red platforms but I'll still give this one to her.

Keri Russell in Zuhair Murad Couture.
Is this real life?! I don't even remember the first movie I saw Keri Russell in but I've loved her ever since. There's something about her that's so classically beautiful. I love that she took a different approach to hair and makeup, accentuating her eyes with a beautiful smokey eye and leaving her hair a little tousled. Again with the feathers and the stunning neckline - are you seeing a pattern here?? Even the wrap up detailing in her sandals has me absolutely D-E-A-D. I wouldn't change a single thing about this dress. There's a LOT going on but I love every single thing happening. From the plunging neckline to the beading to the cinched in waist to the feathers to the slits, it's ALLLLL working for you girl. Okay, maybe except for the earrings. I could have done without those.

Zuri Hall in Fouad Sarkis Couture.
This color is like butter on Zuri's skin tone, stunning! I'm very invested in the color and the detailing around the bust both of which go a long way to make her stand out from the crowd with this number. I will admit it looks a little messy around the bottom and could have used some tailoring in the length department but otherwise I am here for it.

Jessica Biel in Ralph and Russo.
White after Labor Day?! You go on with your bad self you rule breaker you! Jessica Biel looks effortlessly chic here. From her tossed waves and fuchsia lip to her cascading train, this dress is perfectly tailored to her teeny tiny body (God damn her). It has just the right amount of interest with the pattern running throughout as well as the extra fabric around her midsection and it beautifully trails behind her as she glided across the carpet. I will say, no one had a better accessory than Biel last night - that of course being her husband, Justin Timberlake. UGH. It doesn't get much better than that.
Angela Sarafyan in Christian Siriano.
In case you didn't hear, Siriano dressed at least eight celebs for the red carpet last night and while each looked incredible Angela was by far my favorite. Again we see slicked back hair allowing for this grand dress to have its grand moment. The crystal detailing is absolutely incredible. She looks like a walking galaxy. I love that the dress was really given its moment to shine (literally, LOL) as she chose to accessorize with just earrings and a winged liner. This look took the cake for me.

Well, there you have it. I think that may have been the most lackluster and certainly the fastest Red Carpet fashion favorites I've ever done. I'm not sure what it was about this year but the show ended and left me feeling less than inspired both by the fashion as well as Colin Jost and Michael Che's hosting abilities. (Don't they do Weekend Update on SNL though?!)
Major props to Christian Siriano for OWNING the Red Carpet. Not to age myself but I honestly remember watching him on Project Runway with my mom when I was younger so it's so incredible to see how far he's come and the incredible reputation and network of loyal followers he's built for himself.
Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Fab 5 from Queer Eye who owned the stage while presenting an award last evening. I love that they each came with their own unique look and owned it. Most of the people on the Red Carpet could probably learn a thing or two from them tbh...
