Laverne Cox in Donna Karan at the Creative Arts Emmys: stunning & perfect?


Here are some photos from this weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys, which are just the awards for all of the technical, behind-the-scenes people in television for the most part. The Creative Arts Emmys have added categories to bait some bigger-name celebrities to show up, which is why I’m covering some of the photos. If you’d like to see the full list of winners, go here to E!. Lots of wins for True Detective, lots of writing awards for HBO and The Colbert Report. Anthony Bourdain won something. Uzo Aduba won “Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series” for her work as Crazy Eyes in Orange Is the New Black. Allison Janner won “Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series” for Masters of Sex, which if you’ve seen the first season, you know why. Janney was AMAZING in MoS.

Here is Laverne Cox, who looks like a goddess! Laverne wore this glittery Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2014. Great color, great fit, great look overall. But Laverne usually has great styling – she really knows how to pull a look together.


Heidi Klum in Sean Kelly. Don’t yell at me, but I actually like this. I get tired of Heidi’s architectural looks, so it’s nice to see her in something fun and loose.



Uzo Aduba is wearing a Costume National dress. She really decked out and she looks really great. When she won her Emmy, she broke down and cried on stage too.


Allison Janney is perfect. She’s a tall, lanky woman who knows how to dress her proportions. Plus, she’s just one of the greatest actresses around.


Kate Mara in Dior. The white looks like a repurposed LL Bean quilt and the yellow looks like stiff apron material. Just because the label says “Dior” doesn’t make it a great design.


Jenny McCarthy in Stella McCartney. This dress is so budget-looking and Jenny looks like Vanna White.


Cat Deeley in Sachin + Babi. I’m sure some people will love this, but I don’t. I think it’s that peculiar kind of look that Sarah Jessica Parker popularized – like, the overgrown ballerina. Blah.


Nikki Reed in a boring Versace. The fit is awful too. Maybe is it was tailored correctly, I might actually like it.


Bellamy Young in Naeem Khan. This would have been so much better with any other neckline. This halter/t-neck is not working. Imagine it as a strapless with a sweatheart neckline, or even with a straight neckline and spaghetti straps. It would have been so much better.

    Laverne looks amazing here, probably my favourite here tbh.
    Nikki Reed looks so budget here, I don’t know how someone thought it was a good look for a red carpet.

    • JennySerenity says:

      Laverne is stunning and wonderful!! <3 her so much, along w/ Uzo Aduba. Allison Janney is also perfection. She could wear a sack and I would forgive her. I want to love Bellamy so much, but…I just *can’t* The rest of them- meh. Heidi, you are so try hard. Please sit down, already.

  2. Abbott says:

    Heidi looks like she wants to power wash your mini van.

  3. Lucy2 says:

    Laverne’s dress is perfection! Uzo and Allison look great too, very happy for their well-deserved wins.
    Jenny’s dress is awful.

  4. Petrichor says:

    Something about Kate Mara just rubs me the wrong way lately. Maybe it’s because I can’t stand her character on House of Cards.

    Looks like her sister’s emo facial expressions are rubbing off on her.

    Oh, and Allison Janney is wonderful. Love her.

  5. poppy says:

    that yellow thing is awful. AWFUL.

  6. in_theory says:

    Jenny McCarthy’s dress looks like it’s underwear, and cheap underwear at that. Kate Mara’s dress is hideous, and Bellamy Young looks like she is getting strangled by her own gown. And the colour seems to age her.

    Laverne looks great.

  7. Adrien says:

    Laverne looked really great but I’m not really a fan of Donna Karan. Kate Mara’s dress looks unfinished. It looks like it’s still on the pattern stage.

  8. Maria says:

    I always feel so bad for Kate.

    She spent years trying to break out only to have her sister swoop in out of nowhere…

    Lavern looks nice but has on too much makeup for my looking, it’s so thick.

  9. FLORC says:

    Kate’s dress is awful. If the white was it’s own and the yellow was it’s own i’d still hate both dresses.

    Cat’s feet look like they’re screaming. It’s all I could stare at. I think her dress is cute, but on a tween at the kids choice awards. And she’s so tall, but this dress makes her look shortened.

    Is Bellamy pregnant? Because that dress makes me think so.

    Jenny’s spanx is showing.

    And Tim Gunn and Laverne Cox for best dressed! Adore them both!

  10. SpookySpooks says:

    Heidi Klum looks decent. I am really surprised.
    Allison Janney is amazing, I love her so much.
    I really like Kate Mara’s dress.
    Nikki Reed and Bellamy Young look the worst.

  11. Lee says:

    Poor Kate Mara looks just dreadful. Harsh makeup, and her dress is every kind of ugly. It’s not even a Stella design, though perhaps Stella will copy it for another season.

  12. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Kate Mara is the dividing line between good and evil. Everyone before her looks great. After her, just awful.

    I love Tim Gunn. So much.

  13. Nosy says:

    Does anyone remember kate Mara from shooter w/ mark walberg? She was stunning. A redhead Jess Simps. Beautiful. I was obsessed with her and she was so amazing in American horror. What happened? Why the slick backed hair? I do not get? Plz explain!

    • BadAssCompass says:

      I’ve known her from some show where she was a nanny or something? she was cute and then The Sister happened. In my opinion, the overrated sister, still like Kate, but her character on HoC was forced in every way and now she’s trying to do the badass fashion girl thing. Ugh.

    • lucy2 says:

      I remember her from Brokeback Mountain, she played Heath’s character’s daughter, and I thought she was very pretty then. She’s pretty now too, and I really like her as an actress, but she always has an odd expression and fashion choices on the red carpet.

  14. Belle Epoch says:

    Bellamy Young = trash bag! It’s even tied at the top!

    Jenny McCarthy should grow up, but I guess her boobs made her what she is today.

    Nikki Reed went shopping in a dark room.

    Cat Deeley – pretty fabric used badly. Please make crop tops go away!

    Tim Gunn has good manners.

  15. kri says:

    Allison and Uzo for the winners! Heidi Glum gets on the last nerve I have. WTF, Nikki Reed? ALL those zippers and the dress still doesn’t fit you correctly? GRRRRR.

  16. BadAssCompass says:

    I don’t get it, since when do Creative Emmys host actor roles? is that now just for those guest spots, which is ridic in OITNB case because everyone is pretty much regular on that show.
    Happy for Uzo and Allison, great work and great shows, Bellamy deserves a stylist and an award for her role in that godawful Scandal. Laverne is just fierce.

    • Mia4S says:

      The guest actor Emmys have been given out at the Creative Arts for years. Also they are in the guest catagory because, get this, none of them are contracted as regulars! Lead/supporting is a “character” issue. Guest actor is a contractual thing. No matter how big the role is, a guest is a guest. It’s very odd and I would imagine a move to save money.

  17. pnichols says:

    I don’t know who Laverne Cox is. Transgender? Some bod on that one. Wow!

  18. T.C. says:

    Nominating Laverne Cox, Tim Gunn and Uzo for best dressed. Love that Orange is the New Black is giving some very talented Black women an opportunity to shine. It’s a shame that Uzo was about to quit acting altogether due to lack of roles before OITNB. Well deserved Emmy winner.

  19. Lorelei says:

    Oh dear God what happened to Cat Deeley’s feet???? They look like she’s 80.

  20. Chris says:

    God, Laverne Cox is so very lovely….she just radiates grace.
    (I saw a pic of Anthony Bourdain at this bash looking edible in a tux)

  21. I Choose Me says:

    Laverne Cox and Allison Janey. <3

    I prefer Rooney Mara to Kate Mara. There, I said it.

  22. Sumodo1 says:

    Isn’t Tim Gunn the perfect date for a red carpet? I like Cat Deeley’s on trend blue and white.

  23. Mikeyangel says:

    Laverne is beautiful! Love her!

  24. Hi mates, good piece of writing and fastidious urging commented here, I am actually enjoying by these.
