A curated sample of the crazy good (i.e. anything that didn’t remind us of a bridesmaid dress) and the simply crazy (no explanation needed).
L-A: Everything about this makes me feel better about getting older. Not that I have her arms or legs, but I still feel better.
Amanda: Allison Janney is doing the leg slit better than Angelina Jolie, proving yet again that Allison Janney should be running the world.
Ritchie: Well wasn’t CJ Cregg eventually White House Chief of Staff? That’s almost the same, in my fantasy world.
L-A: I….This….I don’t even know. Is it a formal pillow case with a cape?
Amanda: Poor Anna was so distracted that she accidentally wore her hotel bed’s duvet instead of her gown.
Ritchie: It’s a practical choice. I’d want something to keep me warm when the air conditioning goes on full blast for three solid hours.
L-A: Judging by her face, she is full of regret.
Ritchie: The Power Rangers reboot is doing ComicCon, but they gave her the wrong date.
Carla: She’s a magnificent hipster Cinderella. Well done!
L-A: This looks like very elaborate and expensive wallpaper and I am here for it as a dress.
Jen: My thoughts exactly. I want this on my wall and in my closet.
Carla: This is giving me severe Jessica Chastain vibes, in a “not quite 10/10” kind of way.
Ritchie: More like Laurie just chided Meg March for wearing something daring to her coming-out ball.
L-A: She seems confused. Like she’s not sure why she’s at the Emmys. But since Mandy Moore movies are my guilty pleasure, I’m happy to see her back and I enjoy this dress. It’s not spectacular, but it looks like a gown that doesn’t hurt you.
Amanda: The dress itself looks like someone deflated Belle’s ball gown, but I do like the color.
Jen: Really? I didn’t know “Kraft Macaroni & Cheese” was a couture color option.
Amanda: Maybe this dress was Mandy Moore’s quiet nod to Beyoncé that she voted for Lemonade? Does she have hot sauce in her clutch?
Ritchie: It’s Lily Allen!
L-A: It’s not, but Zoe Deschanel probably wants her dress back.
Carla: Next week on New Girl, Jessica Day tries a top bun and pulls out a formal floral dress.
L-A: She could be an Emmy in that dress.
Jen: That’s not a bad thing. I would turn in for The Lavernes.
Amanda: Forget remaking Rocky Horror. I want her to remake Metropolis.
Jen: I like this in theory. Like, if you showed me the fabric and the sketch, I’d be 100% on board. But then it comes to life…
Carla: …and we have shower curtain meets hula hoop.
Ritchie: Remove the hula hoop, and this would be ready for ice dancing.
Amanda: How did she fit the bustle into her seat?
L-A: Yeah, everything about this looks uncomfortable. I feel bad for her boobs. They look like they deserve better.
L-A: I don’t know where she ends and the dress begins.
Ritchie: I like this, although I can see why some might think it’s napkins layered over top of one another.
Amanda: The bottom half of the dress is fabulous. The top half is macrame.
L-A: This is another set of sad boobs. They don’t deserve to be flattened like that.
Bella: Victoria’s Secret remains, for now, a secret.
