Tiffany Haddish in Prabal Gurung at the Emmys: rainbow realness?

Tiffany Haddish attends The 70th Emmy Awards-Arrivals in Los Angeles

You know why Tiffany Haddish goes to every awards show now? Because A) she’s invited, B) she’s usually nominated for something and C) she’s a ray of sunshine wherever she goes, so of course every awards show asks her to present an award. Tiffany was actually at this year’s Emmys to pick up her guest-actress Emmy AND present. She decided to go with this custom-made Prabal Gurung gown. At first, I thought it seemed like a Pride Flag, or that Tiffany just wanted to look like a rainbow because she’s so sunny. But she had another reason for getting this custom dress: “I asked them to make a dress that represents my father’s land.” So Prabal Gurung made her dress based off the colors of the Eritrean flag. I honestly don’t hate it. The silhouette is good, it’s flattering and I enjoy the fact that she’s so colorful.

Allison Janney also wore Prabal Gurung – I love Allison, but sometimes I feel like her style is sliding into “game show hostess.” This dress is giving me Vanna White vibes.

Kate McKinnon shocked me by not wearing a tuxedo or a suit to the Emmys! She wore this Alexander Wang dress on the carpet, and then she changed into a suit for the opening song, then she changed back into this Wang dress. It’s pretty and serviceable – simple, no-nonsense, flattering. I hope she bought it so she can wear it again.

    You can tell she LOVES it. Her face in the photo where she’s twirling her skirt makes me smile back at her, it’s so sweet. Love Tiffany.

    Kate Mckinnon is so frigging gorgeous, gah!

    Why no love for this post? I think she looks great!!! I love the colors! She honored her father’s heritage at another awards show, didn’t she? I wonder if that will be her thing from now on

  5. Nev says:

    Yayyy Tiffany!!!

  6. Millenial says:

    I like Tiffany, but I can’t be the only person who thinks this looks like the parachute little kids use in gym class? That it’s symbolic for the Eritrean flag is nice, but that was the first image this dress conjured for me.

    • SunshineShay says:

      I had the same thought. I love the inspiration behind it, and that helped the look grow on me, but the colours are so… Elementary. Like literally remind me of an elementary school. That’s distracting from the beautiful cut, to me.

    • Trillian says:

      Now you pointed it out. I can’t unsee it.

  7. Murphy says:

    I love Tiffany’s gown.
    And it reminded me of Fruit Stripe gum.

  8. Renee says:

    Tiffany’s & Kate’s were my favorite dresses of the night.

  9. Yes Doubtful says:

    I would hate that dress on anyone else, but on Tiffany…she makes it work! She’s clearly having fun with it!

  10. Parigo says:

    I think they all look great. Hard dresses to pull off for Tiffany and Alison, but I think they do. Safe choice for McKinnon and it’s nice.

  11. K says:

    Kate McKinnon should be encouraged to embrace color more. She’s such a fun person that styling her in black just seems lazy. I think she and Amy Poehler may have the same difficulty feeling totally comfortable and beautiful in dressy event clothes, (so they look kind of cautious) even though both are pretty and beloved.
