Fashion hits and misses at the Emmys
A-list television stars walk the red carpet in Los Angeles, some with more style than others
A-listers came out in numbers to walk the red carpet for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Monday (Tuesday morning South African time).
Most of them looked stylish, but a few stood out for, well, good and bad reasons.
Here are our best and worst dressed celebs at the 2018 Emmy Awards:
TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
Drama, drama, drama! The Black-ish actress turned heads in a fuschia pink, bishop-sleeve gown by Valentino. The pleated waist detail added an exciting contrast to the volume of the dress. So what’s not to love about this outfit? Absolutely nothing.
Thandi Newton’s application to become part of the British royal family has been approved. The Westworld star went for a minimal, elegant Brandon Maxwell piece. Her poise and demure manner reminded us of the new Duchess of Sussex.
As one of the first celebs to step on to the red carpet, the Westworld star set the fashion bar high. She looked like a real-life Cinderella in black, crystal-encrusted ball gown by Christian Siriano.
It's touching that the comedian payed homage to her late father by wearing the colours of the Eritrean flag. That said, there certainly more stylish ways to do that than this rainbow mess of dress.
MILLIE BOBBY BROWN
Sorry Millie, but puff-balls went out in the 1980s. Actually, they weren't in style for long even then. Despite the sweet pink patterned fabric this dress does nothing for you, it belongs on a child not an adult actress.
In three words: too much material. The thigh-high boots could be great with a sleeker and simpler dress but here are dwarfed by a voluminous gown that can't quite decide if it is a drape or a dress.
HIT OR MISS?
Was this asymmetrical yellow and black trouser-cum-dress a hit or a miss? The jury is out.
