Keri Russell in Zuhair Murad at the Emmys: she was robbed but at least Matthew Rhys won?

It took me years to get into The Americans, but once I did I couldn’t stop. That show will pull you in, it will make you mad and it’s a commitment. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are absolutely amazing. The series and both of its leads have been snubbed in all but the secondary acting categories up until this year. For this, its final and sixth season, The Americans took home Writing for a Drama Series and Lead Actor in a Drama, for Matthew Rhys. Rhys’s partner on screen and off, Keri Russell, did not get Lead Actress, that went to Claire Foy. (Sidenote: Vera Farmiga absolutely should have been nominated for Bates Motel.) During his speech Rhys joked that Keri told him he better not propose, then the camera panned to her and her reaction was priceless.

Keri was in Zuhair Murad. She takes a lot of risks on the red carpet and her looks can veer fug, but I think she’s pulling this off. This is like three different looks in one. it’s a sequin embellished jacket with a short feathered skirt and a chiffon train. In any color other than black this would have been too busy, but I kind of like it. Her shoes are incredible. My only complaint is that she’s not channeling her character Elizabeth Jennings more. The late 70s/early 80s fashion on that show is spot on. Plus the disguises are so much fun. Imagine if she went full on disco queen at the Emmys, with a wig and everything.


Chrissy Teigen also had on Zuhair Murad. I’m not too fond of this dress, it seems basic, but it’s not revealing considering what we’ve seen from her and I’ll admit that I really like her and John Legend together. She bantered with Giuliana about the fact that her name is pronounced Tie-gan, not Tee-gan like we’ve been saying for years. Apparently that’s the original Norwegian pronunciation, similar to what we learned about Ariana Grande’s name, and Chrissy still wants us to pronounce it Tee-gan. Ok then.

    I love this couple! They seem so well suited and in love with each other. Rock on!

  2. SM says:

    I find Keri so hot. I would love to be able to pull of the make up she does.

    • Esmom says:

      She’s just stunning, isn’t she? I’ve always thought she was so beautiful.

      I have got to watch The Americans. I tried a couple times but maybe this time it will stick.

      • bros says:

        Kerri looks like a persian cat, but a great persian cat.

      • Barcelona says:

        Very attractive woman, she was excellent in Upside of Anger, great movie.
        I don’t like the eye make up.

      • Elizabeth Rose says:

        I’ve always thought she was so, so beautiful. It’s weird now, I started to think she looked like someone else and it finally came to me that she has similarities to Michelle Pfeiffer, another actress that I think is absolutely beautiful. Something about the delicate features maybe?…

    • Stubbylove says:

      I love Keri but she always f’s it up on the carpet. I love Chrissy’s dress. Top 5.

  3. Char says:

    She has been robbed for six years straight! Elizabeth Jennings is one of the best drama characters ever and The Americans is great!

    • Jess says:

      Agreed. Superb writing, excellent acting, plus perfect music and costume/set designing to match the era. I’m really going to miss that show.

      • Josephine says:

        + 1 to you both. Keri was incredible, but really every single person acted their tails off on that show.

    • Ladykeller says:

      I think the acting and all the characters on the show are great but IMO Kerri is a better actor and has a better role than Matthew. She was robbed yet again.

      • AnneC says:

        I’m really glad that Matthew won, glad that he gave a shout out to Noah Emmerich, sad that Keri didn’t win and really mad that the show lost to game of thrones.

      • Cranberry says:

        Mathew’s character had more range throughout the series imo. But both characters had complexity and range, and they both did a great job in their roles. I’m glad at least he got some recognition although I didn’t think this season showed his range as well as previous seasons.

  4. Xi Tang says:

    I can’t believe that bland girl won and Keri has been snubbed all these years. I’m happy for Matthew. The both of them are phenomenal in The Americans.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    Keri looks amazing. I wish she had won, her performance on that show, start to finish, was incredible. I hope it leads to more good work for her.
    Chrissy’s dress isn’t flattering, IMO.

  6. Caroline says:

    I loved the Americans. Was committed almost from the very start, very sad to see the series end but lovely to see them go out on top, esp for Matthew Rhys, who really had the juicier role as the conflicted one of the two.

    I have one tiny complaint about costuming though … while the disguises were always spot-on, when she was just regular Elizabeth, her hair was most def 2018, not 1983. I just unearthed some of my pics from that time and it would have been more frizz-and-hairspray than sleek-to-one-side. I’m sure Keri was happy to not have to wear that however!

  7. Anne says:

    I love, LOVE Keri on The Americans but Claire Foy was outstanding as Queen Elizabeth. I don’t mind her winning at all.

  8. Cay says:

    “The Americans” is so awesome. I’m sorry Keri didn’t win.

  9. Lala11_7 says:

    Keri’s look was my FAVORITE of the night…she looked like she came to SLAY….


  10. Abbess Tansy says:

    The Americans became one of my all time favorite TV shows. It didn’t grab me at first, but the middle of season 2 is when I began to really love it. I’m glad they received some awards. Love Keri’s look, dress and shoes.

    • AnneC says:

      So agree. It and Mad Men were shows that I so looked forward to each year. Sad they’re both gone…

  11. Chrissyms says:

    Keri’s legs are amaze balls. She is gorgeous. Age seems to make her even more beautiful rather then cute. Chrissy’s look is a big no for me. Not my style at all.

  12. Spicecake38 says:

    I love her eye makeup,it could have been really bad,doing that color and all,but she really pulled that look off beautifully!

  13. Jem says:

    Keri Russell is sex on a stick.

  14. Michel says:

    I once saw Keri on the subway – just as gorgeous as she appears on the red carpet. I hope she gets her due one day.

  15. Bailie says:

    Lovely looking woman, very attractive.
    Hideous eye make up, looks like a racoon.
    She was great in Upside of Anger.

  16. Jessica says:

    This look to me says, I’m here to party and I will cut you if I have to.

  17. Kalesalad says:

    Celebitchy, totally agree with your assessment of The Americans and Keri’s fashion. She does take risks. But I hope those aren’t real feathers; aren’t feathers just like fur? Keri has a biting humour. I loved that story she told about Cameron Diaz checking out her ex husband. Can’t believe Matthew Rhys used to date Sienna Miller; odd coupling. Keri is in the next Star Wars; she and JJ Abrams go way, way back, including with Felicity and one of the Mission Impossibles.

  18. serena says:

    Absolutely love Keri Russel’s look, too bad she lost the Emmy. I hope to see more of her in tv / movies soon.
