Alison Brie in cutout Miu Miu at the Emmys: not that great but cute anyway?

Glow did not win anything at the Emmys last night, but it was nominated for comedy and did pick up a creative arts Emmy for Outstanding Stunt Coordination. Glow is going to be like Jenji Kohan’s other show, Orange is The New Black, it will air forever because it’s on Netflix and it will probably start winning Emmys in the third season. Star Alison Brie wasn’t nominated for anything this year, only her costar Betty Gilpin was nominated for supporting actress, but that will surely change. I like the subtle nod to wrestling in Brie’s yellow Miu Miu dress with the side cutouts and leotard-like straps. The rhinestones are a little much and the argument can be made that this looks cheap, but I see what she’s going for and I appreciate it. Also she’s gorgeous and versatile, I really like her.


Ellie Kemper was in J. Mendel and I also have mixed feelings about this dress. The scalloped tiers are bizarre but they don’t overwhelm the dress, which has a simple silhouette and subtle enough print to balance them out. The color is underwhelming, but sherbet colors were big last night. So I don’t know. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was also up for comedy series, but Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won that.

Padma Lakshmi was in a complicated red cutout J. Mendel gown that she’s worn before. People points out that Padma wore that gown about a year ago to the Vogue India Women of the Year Awards. I would recycle the hell out of that dress it looks great on her. Padma was wearing a blue ribbon in support of the ACLU.


I need to watch more Youtube makeup tutorials. She’s stunning.

    Not a fan of Alison’s dress, beautiful as she is, but I think Ellie’s is perfection. Padma’s, too.

  3. CharliePenn says:

    Alison’s face reminds me of my sister in that her beauty is so so delicate, if you add too much makeup it just overwhelms her features and makes her look tired or something. I love her dress and hair here.

    • Murphy says:

      Yeah and the makeup is giving me serious Courtney Cox vibes here too.

    • Tootsie45 says:

      I had the same thought…there’s something off about it. And to me the dress is kinda tacky. She’s so beautiful, it seems like it would be hard to mess that up.

    • Natalie S says:

      Yeah, she’s naturally so beautiful but her makeup choice takes away from that and makes her look like she’s getting over the flu.

    • Ange says:

      I agree. The under eye makeup looks kind of wonky, she didn’t need as much as she had.

  4. Jessica says:

    I don’t like Alison’s dress. Looks like Vegas showgirl wannabe. I like Ellie’s dress – it’s interesting and I love that shade.

  5. Murphy says:

    Trudy Campbell can do no wrong.

  6. Tootsie45 says:

    Holy crap Padma Lakshmi is a gorgeous woman. That face is insane.

  7. Faithmobile says:

    Love Padma’s Dress especially the Star Trek cut outs, which reminded me of the one episode she was in(horrible actress), but she really is an absolutely stunning woman. I love Glow so much that Allison Brie can do no wrong in my book. #70’s baby

    I think Brie’s dress would have been cute with smaller cut-outs. It’s a little too much skin… it looks too casual to me. Ellie Kemper looks great!

  9. Renee says:

    Padma looks incredible. That color was made for her.

  10. Happy21 says:

    Kimmy 4EVA!
    Ellie looks great!

  11. Anastasia says:

    I’m a huge fan of Ellie’s. I love this dress, her hair, everything. I just had no idea she was this thin.

  12. bella says:

    Padma looks so beautiful!!! I think Alison is gorgeous and yellow is one of my favorites, but she is so delicate that even this dress seems heavy on her. It’s probably the makeup as everyone else is saying.
