Amy Poehler & the other funny ladies at the Emmys: lovely & elegant?

Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler made her live-television debut without Will Arnett last night, and he surely must have been crying into his beer at home. Or at least, that’s how we’d all prefer to think of him last night. Who knows. Oddly enough, Amy wore a black Stella McCartney dress, and she looks fantastic. How did that happen in Stella? The shape of the dress is very flattering, and Amy wears it well while also losing a bit of her goofiness. She’s a very underrated hottie, you know.

Kristen Wiig was a standout in Balenciaga, and she said that she had told her stylist she wanted a dress that was “ghostly.” Kristen scores a few points for creativity in not choosing a floor-length gown, and this pale-colored (is it champagne or nude?) chiffon, tea-length dress was a little bit rock and roll too. Fabrezio Moretti has been a great influence on her style.

Tina Fey looked very pretty in her bordeaux-colored Vivienne Westwood dress. I think the shape of the dress is very flattering to Tina’s figure, but I would have opted to remove the gold trim in the boob area. A solid color would have made this an even sleeker look. Poor Tina always looks so uncomforable on the red carpet — she’s a perfect example of grinning and bearing it.

Jane Krakowski wore a Kaufman Franco gown, and her hair was a bit too beachy for the overall look. Then again, perhaps Jane wore her hair like that to distract from the OMG botox look that she was sharing with Nicole Kidman. Ladies, less is more.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore a merlot Vera Wang gown, and she looked very beautiful and elegant with this relatively simple dress and a center-parted chignon. If I could change anything, it would be the color because she’s clashing a bit too much with the red carpet. Black would have been a great option, as would royal blue.

    Love Amy’s look and thought she and Julia’s schtick was awesome.

    • Eve says:

      I loved Julia too. It’s a shame Brazilian (super shitty, botched) simultaneous “translation” ruined the entire show for me.

      • Lily says:

        Eve, if you have “Net” you can always switch to English (green button).

      • Eve says:

        Here we have Sky :cry:

        I don’t know about you, but the one I watched was aired by Warner Channel — they even announced “it would be available in its original audio as well”. I tried that “+” button (Sky’s option to switch languages), but to no avail.

        Atrocious translation (I could hear the original audio in the background, and sometimes the presenters were saying something COMPLETELY different). Especially infuriating was missing the jokes by Ricky Gervais and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s schtick with Poehler.

        P.S.: it was so annoying that it one point I put it on mute.

      • Eve says:

        *AT one point I had to put it on mute (or my teeth would have exploded).

  2. Lem says:

    The two pictures of Tina really emphasize how photos can really change a color of a dress. I love the first dark dress and dislike that second plum shade. Even though it is the same dress.

  3. Marianne says:

    Tina was one of my favourites. She looked so sexy in that dress. complimented her very well.

  4. dcypher1 says:

    Love amy shes is hot. She looks the best out of all these funny ladies.

  5. kibbles says:

    I’ve never seen Amy Poehler look this good. Maybe we are going to see a sexier Amy now that she’s single again? The ring Amy is wearing a $2 ring from her son’s toy box.

    I also like Kristen Wiig’s dress. Her fashion sense has proved immensely in the last several years. She used to look absolutely awful on the red carpet.

    Tina Fey looks really uncomfortable and I think she looked better when she was a few pounds heavier. She looked more comfortable than she does now. She looks like she is sucking it in and can barely breathe in that bodice.

  6. DreamyK says:

    Tina looks fabulous and it’s about damn time. Whoever was dressing her before did her a major disservice for years.

    Way to represent Fey :)

  7. The Original Tiffany says:

    I thought Tina and Amy and Julia all looked great. Kristen too. Their faces move! They have wrinkles. Is it because in their line of the biz they need to show expression to play their parts? I liked the top of Tina’s dress, liked the whole thing, but I have a Westwood love.

    Take note other toxed and filled actresses!

    • kibbles says:

      Amen. See Jennifer Westfeldt (Jon Hamm’s partner) and Nicole Kidman. I’d much rather have a few wrinkles than look like a chipmunk.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Totally agree, Tiff. I think they all look pretty awesome. I always forget what an awesome figure Tina Fey has….

  8. Jen says:

    I don’t get the love for Kristen’s dress. She looks like she doesn’t know how to dress for the Emmy’s. Would aspire to trashy 8th grade formal if it were a COLOR.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      I know. It’s kind of the same thing she always wears, but washed out instead of overly-enthusiastic brown brigade.

  9. Happy21 says:

    I didn’t know Amy Poehler could look so good. I was pretty surprised at what she was wearing. She looked great!

    Tiny Fey looked very nice but she always seems uncomfortable in the dress up clothes.

    Jane K WTF! Her face!! OMG Her face!

    I love, love, love Kristen Wiig as a brunette. Absolutely gorgeous! Oh and her dress was nice too.

    Julia LD looked really good too. She’s really come into her own since Seinfeld.

    • apsutter says:

      Amy looked really good in last weeks episode of Parks and Rec. Especially during the opening her hair and makeup made her look so pretty!

  10. april says:

    I thought Kristen W. looked terrible in that photo. I really like Jane K’s. hair and dress. Tina F. looks good.

  11. judyjudy says:

    Kristen Wiig’s dress is gorgeous.

    Amy P looks good but I think the dress maybe made her look a little frumpy in the middle? Maybe a little?

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      Agreed on Amy.

      Now that I think of it, she did yellow FAR better in her interview than did any of the Emmy ladies last night.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I really like that dress on her a LOT. It’s the only dress I’ve seen from these Emmys that I would actually like for myself, except in a different color.

  12. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Dang, Jane K. got SKINNY! She can barely hold her head up. Pretty dress, though.

  13. apsutter says:

    Amy was robbed!

  14. bea says:

    Amy has never looked better – unusual, as she’s going thru a divorce, but maybe it’s making her happy!

    JLD does not look good in that dress, IMO. The color is dull and the cut is not flattering. Her hair is super bad.

    I am not feeling Kristin Wiig’s dress at all.

  15. apsutter says:

    Also, Tina has an awesome body!! She looks great in that dress.

  16. Lisa says:

    Amy looks super cute, but I don’t like the halter style on her.

  17. A Fan says:

    They all look good!

  18. lucy2 says:

    I like all of these, except Kristen’s looks a little drab. I wish she’d find something fabulous for a change.
    Amy looks amazing.
    Love Tina’s dress.
    Love Jane’s dress.
    Love Julia’s too, except I didn’t like her hair.

  19. B says:

    Julia looked great. She has barely aged. I was happy to see her win.

  20. Jes says:

    Long time reader, first time poster!

    I feel this is a hit and miss bunch – Amy’s hair and makeup is very pretty on her but the dress itself is meh – it’s not flattering her all that much.

    I thought Kristen’s dress was AWFUL. It reminded me of a table runner, and the halterneck cut on her wasn’t flattering. The shoes and the hair were boring also. Not understanding the love for that dress/look at all.

    Love Tina’s figure in that dress! Fits her like a glove!

  21. Aqua says:

    Tina was simply stunning.It’s the best I’ve seen her look in a very long time.
