Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey & Michelle Dockery: who looked worse at the Emmys?

Was this Emilia Clarke’s first time at the Emmys? I think it might have been. And Emilia did not really deliver the fashion p0rn that I hoped for. Then again, Emilia is sort of an unknown quantity for fashion – she’s beautiful and she’s petite, but I’m never paying that much attention to what she’s wearing.

For last night’s Emmys, Emilia wore Donna Karan Atelier. This crap looks like it’s from The School of Marchesa, right? I actually had to double-check to make sure the fashion ID wasn’t wrong. This really is Donna Karan. And it’s awful!! WHY, KHALEESI? This is why I hate when “pale colors” are in style for a particular season – because most actresses up for awards are pale white women who look washed-out (if not cracked-out) in pale colors. This Donna Karan might have been slightly better if it was in a rich, flattering color like aubergine or even a bold hot pink. As it is, it just looks like a really cheap wedding gown. And her makeup & hair are terrible too. STOP WITH THE CENTER PARTS.

Holy crap, Lena Headey is NOOOOooo. She wore Alessandra Rich. Giant granny panties and a black lace robe, basically. And then to add insult to fashion injury, she paired this sh-t with WHITE SHOES. Dear Lena: NO. Stop it. You’re beautiful, but you need to find a real stylist.

Michelle Dockery in Prada. Oh, Michelle. This look is horrible! Usually Michelle looks interesting if not fabulous, but I don’t get this at all. The dress is just terrible at every level.

    Whoa, a whole lot of fugly.

    • LadyBird83 says:

      I actually love Lena’s look! She is usually kind of a red carpet train wreck. Now Emilia who is usually stunning looks waxy and over botoxed.

    • Kim says:

      I have no idea who Emilia is but i love her dress. Thats a really hard dress to pull off esp. in white & she wears it very well i think. Softer hair & makeup would be nice to distract from the waxy face.

  2. T.C. says:

    Something must be wrong with me cause I think all three ladies look good in their dresses.

    • Anna says:

      Michelle is my best dressed of the night. My jaw DROPPED when I saw her. In a great way. Love the whole thing top to bottom. Not a single thing I’d tweak.

      • bob says:

        I love Michelle’s dress, it’d look great on a pear shape – gimme gimme.

        Don’t like the shoes, it would have been better if they matched the top part of the dress, peeping out from the skirt.

      • Seattlemomma says:

        LOVE Michelle’s outfit. I think she looks fantastic. Interesting color combination, perfect fit. LOVE!

    • Kristen says:

      agreed. I dislike Lena’s shoes, but other than that I think they all look great.

  3. Laurabb says:

    I thought Emilia looked great! One of my top dresses of the night.

  4. ALG says:

    1. Whoever has been doing Emilia’s eye makeup for the last year needs to be kicked to the curb. She looks like something out of Star Trek.
    2. Lena Headey always looks hideous. Pretty sure she picks the weirdest crap from whatever she’s offered.
    3. Michelle Dockery’s isn’t that bad, it’s just that mom haircut that she has. She’s so boring.

  5. Spooks says:

    Michelle looks great.
    I love Lena’s hair.
    Thank God Emilila didn’t win. I love GoT, but her winning woul be an insult to Lena, Michelle and other amazing actresses on that show.

  6. Dids says:

    I dont know why exactly but I find Lena’s look intriguing AND beautiful…

  7. Chicagogurl says:

    It sucks, they’re all gorgeous and its like they got it 60% right and gave up. The top of Michelle dress, the slit on Lena and her hair, the minimal styling on Amelia (who always looks great in her day to day wardrobe). Yuck to all 3!

  8. T.fanty says:

    I love Lena Headley. Her wardrobe is so insane that she’s always fun to see. And even when she doesn’t pull it off, I find her so beautiful that I don’t care.

  9. Rice says:

    I actually like Michelle’s dress. It’s unusual and different but not obnoxious.

    • emmie_a says:

      I do too. She’s showing up on almost every ‘worst dressed’ list but I like it. Those two colors together are interesting and the shape is classic but with a twist.

    • Nev says:


      she looks like fashion. amazing.

  10. Merman says:

    I liked Lena’s(another underrated actress)dress,hated the shoes.Still beautiful though.

  11. GeeMoney says:

    Lena Headey’s dress is HIDEOUS. Whomever allowed her to leave the house wearing that black see-through dress with ugly white heels should be SHOT IN THE HEAD. And her hair looks bad on top of it. Can’t she afford a decent stylist?

    Emilia Clarke’s dress isn’t that bad… it’s kind of nice, actually (I like the ruffles). I think she’s so pretty.

    Michelle Dockery’s dress gets a resounding “meh”.

  12. QQ says:

    *Temples Rub* it Hurts my heart That My Game Of Thrones ladies look so shitty

    • Caz says:

      I like Emilia’s dress. Yes it pains me too about the GOT ladies. Lena is gorgeous…needs to lighten her hair a bit or put highlights in it to give her a bit of oomph.

  13. blue marie says:

    what is different about Lena, she does not look the same to me. Her dress isn’t horrible but there’s something off.

  14. Gretchen says:

    Wowza, she has always been petite, but it looks like Emilia has lost so much weight, too much weight, eat Khaleesi, eat!! And, while I love full eyebrows on ladies, using brown shadow up to the brow line completely overwhelms her lovely eyes.

    I wonder if Michelle’s dress is supposed to be functional? Could you perhaps stuff the neck ruff with cylinder cushions for a handy head-rest?

    • themummy says:

      I love how people take it upon themselves to assume someone needs to eat because they look thin. She looks fine, but even if she was too skinny, eating may not be the whole answer, and even so, saying that, at this point, is just a cliche. Rude.

  15. Sal says:

    All hideous! Michelle Dockery looks like she is posing for the cover of a woman’s magazine circa 1950s.

  16. MeowuiRose says:

    GoT didn’t win anything:( sadness:( 🙁

    • iskra says:

      well, to be honest, they deserved nothing this season. And this comes from a fan.

      Emilia looks boring as always…I like Michelle and Lena could actually wear something other than black and white.

    • Side-Eye says:

      GOT deserved to lose based on that Talisa bullshit alone, and ESPECIALLY after having the characters emphasize respect in Walder’s house and then inviting the very source of that disrespect to the wedding. So yeah.

  17. missmerry says:

    I hope the dark eyeshadow up to the brow stops soon, no matter who wears it, it just looks like your brows have gone unplucked for months and are just growing down into your eyeballs…

  18. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I don’t hate Emilia’s dress. The rest are awful though.

  19. Sachi says:

    I love Emilia’s dress. On E!’s Glam Cam the details stood out well and the fabric looked so soft and smooth, so very delicate.

    Her eye makeup is horrid. Who is the “professional” who does hers? Yellow eyeshadow?!

    Lena is beautiful. I even like the white shoes. So edgy and chic.

    Michelle’s dress doesn’t work. Perhaps if the skirt were a dark pink, it would look better. Red and pink surprisingly go well together.

  20. janie says:

    I have to watch Fashion Police tonite! I think all these ladies scored a big, fat zero!

  21. Amanda says:

    I guess I’m alone here because I like Michelle’s dress. I just think those colors are interesting together and pretty with that purse. However, I don’t like that giant piece of fabric in the back.

  22. moon says:

    Michelle Dockery’s colours are nice, but that dress looks like a cheap bridal gown.

  23. Asdfg says:

    I loved Lena’s look! 🙂

  24. jbear75 says:

    RE: Lena Headey

    Miley Cyrus, LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!!

  25. Allie says:

    The first girl’s make up looks terrible. Guess its not hard to become a make up artist anymore?!

  26. themummy says:

    I like Lena’s look, and it is NOT “giant granny panties.” What you are seeing is some sort of wrapping material that goes around her waist, OVER the panties. I think she looks great.

    Emilia, however, just looks yuck to me as a brunette…and yeah, i know that’s her natural hair color. Blonde suits her. Just like red suits Christina Hendricks and she’s naturally platinum blonde (which looks awful on her).

  27. Ginger says:

    Emilias dress does look like a wedding gown and I dislike Lena’s gown altogether. However I think Michelle looks great! Love her dress!

  28. Grant says:

    I think Lena looks quite good actually, and I like the color blocking on Michelle’s dress. Emilia, however, looks horrid. She needs to tame the eyebrows. I have nothing against thick eyebrows but amidst her pale skin and dark hair, those thick bushes appear quite jarring.

  29. Shelly says:

    I think Michelle looks fab. I have no idea who the other two women are.

  30. Crabcake says:

    I honestly like all of these looks. Emilia shouldn’t have that shade of brown eyeshadow on between her brows and eyes because she has heavy brows. But I still have brow envy, she’s such a doll.

  31. Naddie says:

    I usually think Emilia is drop dead stunning, but somehow she managed to look weird.

  32. Amy says:

    This wasn’t Emilia first time at the Emmys because last year’s show is where she met that douche Seth MacFarland. And last year she wore Chanel couture…how do you go from Chanel to Donna Karen??

  33. LilyRose says:

    I disagree. Michelle looks gorgeous. The proportions are right with enough drama to make the look stand out. She’s one of the best dressed on fashion blogs (the ones I read at least)

  34. DreamyK says:

    I loved Lena’s dress. The shoes? Not so much.

  35. Claudia says:

    I love how people are split on Lena Headey’s dress– that’s how you should do fashion. Inspire radically different opinions! I err on the side of really liking it, although the shoes are a bit off. I think Clarke looks very soft and feminine in her dress, very pretty. Makeup and hair are off, though. I hate the third look for that Michelle chick.

  36. Gigi says:

    Ewww. All, just EWWWWWWWWW

  37. taxi says:

    I like Emilia’s dress. There’s enough contrast between her skin color & the dress so she doesn’t look dead, like Danes, Kidman, Watts, etc. when they go too pale. She does look better as a blond, imo.

    Lena dress? is horrible & even worse with the white shoes. Makes her look like a past-her-prime madam in a scuzzy hick town.

    Michelle is nicely groomed & the dress fits properly, but the color combo is odd. On my monitor, it looks like darkish orange & rosy-rust, which just doesn’t look great.

  38. Caroline says:

    Emilia looks so terrible, from her toilet paper dress to the oily hair to the old-looking face omg terrible terrible terrible.
    Michelle’s dress looks high fashion..and Lena,,,,,,eh

  39. Maum says:

    I thought Michelle Dockery’s dress was the most elegant of the night.
    I clearly am in the (tiny) minority.

    Emilia’s dress is pretty but she looks ills- who did her makeup????

    I don’t like Lena’s dress (hate sheer) but I like her attitude.
