There were a few women who sort of blended into each other on the Emmys red carpet. Maybe it was because so many ladies were SO BLONDE and so melty from the heat, but I kept confusing Claire Danes for January Jones. Also, it was really funny to me that Claire was the second major actress on the red carpet to have chain details on her dress, and when Ryan Seacrest told her that Taraji Henson had chains too, Claire had a moment, just a flash, where she looked slightly pissed. She thought she was going to be the only one with chains!
Anyway, Claire’s dress was Prada. I’ve gotten to the point where I really, really do not like Prada’s gowns (unless Lupita Nyong’o is wearing them). This dress is sort of a study in how to f—k up a perfectly simple and classic design. If this had just been a simple, sequined slipdress, it would have been lovely and Claire might even be one of my favorites. But the chains just take this to a really fug level. First of all, the chains are GIANT. They’re, like, industrial chains. Second of all… I just hate her hair. It ruins the look. Celebitchy called this “Republican spouse hair” and she’s right. Also: Hugh Dancy’s haircut is awful.
Here’s Morena Baccarin (who isn’t on Homeland anymore but whatever) in Reem Acra. This is… bad. It looks cheap.
Nazanin Boniadi from Homeland… beautiful girl, horrible dress. She was on the red carpet really early too, and people were like “WTF?” to this Stephane Rolland boob-drape dress. Why would you do this to a young woman going to the Emmys?!
