Laverne Cox in Mark Bouwer at the Emmys: Grecian goddess or toga toga?

Laverne Cox

At last night’s Emmys, Laverne Cox of OITNB wore a custom Marc Bouwer gown that looked positively gorgeous. She usually wears the same look but mixed it up for last night’s event. Instead of a cocktail dress and heavy bangs, Laverne went for a Grecian-inspired white gown that was tailored beautifully. Laverne looks amazing here! The gown drapes and hugs in all the right places, and she wore the dress with utter confidence. I was also happy to see her style her hair back to let the dress shine.

Uzo Aduba won the category for Guest actress in a comedy series (she’s been upgraded to full cast member for OITNB‘s third season). Uzo brought the glamour in this strapless red Christian Siriano gown that ended in a fury of ruffles. This dress went right to the top of the list without bursting over the waterfall of excess.

Samira Wiley went simple with her styling in this bright yellow, strapless mermaid dress. I think she may have been best dressed last night. Samira always brings it.

Taryn Manning decided to dress like an Emmy statue. This is a bit much, and the bold color somehow washes her out. Her hair and makeup are all wrong. Frosted pink lipstick and (maybe) an attempted smokey eye did her nor favors. Taryn looks very pretty when she goes subtle. Last night was not that type of night.

Natasha Lyonne often sticks to the same type of dress, but she still looked great her in this royal blue custom Opening Ceremony number. She knows what works for her even if she often errs on the side of conservative. Natasha tamed her curls, and her makeup looks fantastic.

    I’m not impressed by any of the dresses, but I love Teyonah’s smile.

  2. Lucy2 says:

    As soon as I saw Lavern on screen, my first thought was goddess. Uzo and Samira looked amazing as well.

  3. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Laverne is GORGEOUS. OMG. I just can’t stop looking at her. She’s up there with Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, and Rachel Weisz for me. Just. so. damn. gorgeous. I’m jealous.

    • Chris says:

      She’s just stupendous. I can do without gowns-with trains but this passes due to its simplicity, and for my money only magnificent physiques such as Laverne’s can carry off anything so dependent on draping…..someone on yesterday’s pics wore a pale green job but there was no flesh underneath to support it!

  4. BangersandMash says:

    yes, yes, yeeeessssss!!

  5. jessica6 says:

    Wow, pretty much all of these gowns and dresses do a thing for me. Samira’s yellow ‘mermaid’ gown reminds me of a bottle of French’s mustard.

    Natasha’s dress IS gorgeous, though; love the lace work on the sleeves and arms – hate the bottom of the dress…it would have looked so much better if it was a straight cut at the bottom. Very pretty dress, though.

  6. Francis says:

    Uzo had ONE of the best dresses of the night. IMO

  7. MonicaQ says:

    That white dress is the first one I’ve seen that I said out loud, “If I wasn’t 5’4, I’d rock the ba-jeebus out of that.” /short-life.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Isn’t it pretty? I love the little silver details at the shoulder.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Monica–I’m JEALOUS. I’m five feet two and a quarter inches…..if it wasn’t for my twelve year old brother, I’d be the shortest one in the house 🙁

      • Chris says:

        Hahaha! Me too, 5’2″……I’m sure that’s why I have cats, just do I have persons to loom over majestically :/

  8. Dani2 says:

    Uzo Aduba keeps slaying me with her fashion choices, love the look here.

    Natasha looks great as well.

  9. Hissyfit says:

    That red dress is fabulous!

  10. Kali says:

    I really love Laverne but dayum, Uzo for the win. I loved when she presented too! The dress moved so beautifully.

  11. in_theory says:

    I’m not feeling Natasha Lyonne’s dress. She looks like an old maid. Maybe without the ruffles or whatever at the bottom?

    Uzo Aduba seems to have risen goddess-like out of the carpet.

  12. Belle Epoch says:

    Taryn’s tattoo looks like an expiration date. Come ON, people! Can we get away from prison tattoos?

  13. Anna says:

    Next year can OITNB be in the drama categories? Or will it still be a “comedy”?

    I like Natasha’s dress except for the bottom. The longsleeved lace reminds me of something Kate Middleton would wear. Laverne was one of the best dressed of the night IMO.

  14. HK9 says:

    Lavern looks like one of the pillars of the Parthenon~gorgeous.

  15. some bitch says:

    Laverne has an amazing body. She looks incredible!

    Really like Uzo’s dress too.

    • deftie says:

      I don’t iike her body. She has some really man-like torso, neck and arms. If it weren’t for boobs I would think it is some guy dressed as a woman for Halloween. I don’t know her at all, this is first time I heard of her, no prejudice.

  16. Sayrah says:

    Uzo looked amazing, but I couldn’t believe she and Hayden pannetiere were the same height! She’s just larger than life as Suzanne but I guess she’s only 5 feet tall.

  17. serena says:

    Natasha Lyonne looked great? Oh please, she is beautiful, but she was wearing a granny outfit!! Oh well, at least from the top on she looked good, the awful part was the bottom (a mid-long skirt ending with a ruffle? that’s granny-ish).

    Loved all the other ones.

  18. QQ says:

    Laverne, Uzo and Samira are 110% Baes!!!

  19. Wallamalooo says:

    Laverne Cox is SO beautiful!!

  20. Ellie66 says:

    Uzo looks just breathtaking that dress is perfect for her. The rest look great but Taryns tattoos look a bit icky with a fancy dress. (Please don’t jump me for the tattoo comment) Lol! 😉

  21. kri says:

    Take it away, Uzo. Another perfect red dress. She looks amazing.

  22. apsutter says:

    I don’t care what Natasha wears because I just adore that freaking girl. Just something about her messy hair and casual persona just makes me love her. Whenever she shows up on screen it just makes me happy.

  23. Observer says:

    Nope and definitely not after the defence of that prisoner..

  24. Lux says:

    I love Samira Wiley but I’d have to disagree, that dress is fug on so many levels.

  25. Hmmm says:

    Laverne and Chiwetel Ejiofor(sp) could be brothers, Laverne looks just like him. There’s Nothing femine about Laverne. She looks like a man with a dress on, so I don’t get the “she looks gorgeous comments”.

    • Sooloo says:

      I’m not understanding the eyebrow game, and I see this all the time on various celebs. It looks like all the hair is shaved off, then a wide brushstroke of some sort of makeup is used to “paint” them back on in a ridiculously high arch? Is that what the process is? From far away it looks ok, but since Laverne has the only real close-up, the eyebrows just really stand out as looking like a schmear of dark brown lipstick across the forehead. What’s wrong with natural hair on the brows, just tweezed into a nice shape? Lol…and yikes if someone ever gets caught off-guard and doesn’t have time to paint them on!

    • Ange says:

      Well aren’t you lovely.
