EMMYS 2015: RECOVERY

Ok. Ok. I think I can come back to this one now.

Last week I posted about the plethora of WTFs on the Emmys red carpet – a fashion-induced wound that has taken longer to heal than my hangover from Sunday’s junkboat. And that was bad.

But I have found it in my heart to forgive and forget and focus on the positives – those shining lights that waltzed their way down what must have been an eyesore of a red carpet looking nothing short of sensational. Because let’s face it; there were some winners that night.

So without anymore pomp and ceremony and general babbling on; I present to you my best dressed nominees for the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards. You might be totally on my side with these choices and you might also think that all the rice and noodles have gone to my brain and caused it to short-circuit; either way we’re having a conversation here. And I would love to hear your opinion on the matter! So drop me a comment at the end of this post and let me know what you thought about the stylish successes from the awards show filled with has-beens, been-there’s and why-are-you-even-still-here’s.

Happy Tuesday.

Black and White Beauties

Taraji-PHenson_glamour_21sep15_rexfeatures_b_426x639_1
SLAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.  Taraji P. Henson (Cookie from the hit-show Empire) looked absolutely incredible in this black Alexander Wang couture cut-out. this look is just the right mixture of vamp, sex appeal and class. get it girl! without a doubt one of my top 5 best dressed from the night.

Lady Gaga wore a stunningly simplistic gown by her former stylist-turned-designer Brandon Maxwell and looked so chic and glamorous. which, compared to her meat dress moment of the past; is something to be noted and applauded.

Viola-Davis_glamour_21sep15_getty__426x639_1
Viola Davis was a MASSIVE winner at the Emmys; making history as the first black woman to win lead actress in a TV series drama for her role in How To Get Away With Murder. she also won in the style stakes (because like, where can I buy those arms?). I love that she kept it classy and simple, with natural hair and a beautiful coral lip. she is literally glowing and that, my friends, is what gets you onto a list like this. the woman is radiating happiness and confidence.
I do not know who you are but you are the cutest person i have never met and the only human being to wear polka dots on the red carpet and WIN.

Kerry-Washington_glamour_21sep15_rexfeatures_b_426x639_1
another one of my top 5 favourites. Kerry Washington can pretty much do no wrong in my world and this Marc Jacobs, straight-off-the-runway three quarter piece of sequined sophistication is just one more reason to OBSESS. done. finished. dead.

I TOTALLY WOULD.
I TOTALLY WOULD.
Alan Cummings has always been a little odd and a little quirky in his style choices and considering how boring menswear can be; I have to give it to him for lightening up the mood with an umbrella and crocs on the red carpet. because if anyone is going to pull of such a stunt it's the guy that looks like the birthchild of Mr. Bean and Pee Wee Herman.

And that’s that for the Emmys 2015. Let me know what you think and who you wish would just stop it already.

Until next time xxx
