Keri Russell in Monique Lhuillier at the Globes: fabulous or dated?

Last night The Americans won Best TV Drama Series! For such an incredible show it sure took long enough, its sixth and final season, for it to be recognized. It wasn’t even nominated in the category until last year, which is a crime, and it lost at The Emmys to Game of Thrones. So I’m happy The Americans is getting acknowledgement. It’s a slow burn for sure and it took me a while to get into it, but it’s so worth it.

As for fashion, star Keri Russell was in this silver sequin Monique Lhuillier with a plunging v-neck and a floor length skirt. The top of this dress makes it look like she’s slouching. I would slouch in that gown as I wouldn’t trust it. There’s something off about the shoulders too. I like a good retro shoulder pad but the bodice is all wrong. She’s lovely though and I’m so happy for her and her partner, Matthew Rhys. Plus all the talented cast and crew on this show. Especially the costume designers!

Here’s a cute photo of Keri carrying her Louboutins while getting out of limo to go to the WME Golden Globe Party. Now I don’t even care if I ever own a pair of those bloody shoes. I guess those high end designer shoes are typically uncomfortable.


Presenter Kaley Cuoco had on a very cute white and navy Monique Lhuillier gown featuring a velvet strapless top and white structured full skirt with pockets. The black bow at the waist fit perfectly and gave the dress a holiday vibe. She kept sticking her hands in the pockets and it was cute. She looked so good! I really liked her hair, it looked so sleek like that. Her arms are goals.


Linda Cardellini was also in Monique Lhuillier. More women wore that designer than any other, which is rare as Christian Siriano usually takes that honor. Her black chiffon and sequin dress is just ok. We’ve seen that same silhouette, the asymmetric side draped top with the keyhole neckline, on so many gowns. Linda starred in Green Book, the white savior movie which won Best Comedy or Musical for some reason. I really hope that’s the only award it gets this season apart from some technical ones.



Last night there was a weird bit where “doctors” in white lab coats came out giving flu shots. There was no real reason for it and the flu shots must have been fake, but Linda was game. A lot of celebrities said “no,” which would be my default response to random people doing that, and I usually get a flu shot. What if you already had one that season? Here’s that video:

Jameela Jamil had on a salmon-colored Monique Lhuillier featuring floral embroidery and beading. The top is a little too low cut, you can see her strapless bra from the side, but I really like the elegant gathered skirt. Imagine if the top was higher and just a solid color. It’s a good look for her.



Newly engaged lady Heidi Klum was in a fug Lhuillier ballgown with a very low cut bustier top and a full skirt with colorful floral appliques. Her makeup was bad and her face kind of says it all in the full length photo. She does look thrilled to be with her new fiance, Tom Kaulitz. I hope they don’t make it official. That would be a disaster.



Amber Heard over accessorized her Lhuillier with a ton of stacked bracelets and way too many rings. This is a perfectly acceptable gown otherwise. I like the lower skirt and the open back with the bow. Her styling is so pretty too, I don’t remember seeing her hair curly like that before .


When announcing the winner of best Actor in a Mini-Series, Darren Criss, Amber called him “Daniel,” but it wasn’t a glaring mistake. I didn’t even notice.

There are two more people in Lhuillier! I told you they dressed more women than anyone. First here’s Isla Fisher, who seems to have been stuck with the same designer as Heidi Klum. (I mean technically everyone had the same designer but they must have a team of people. Like Amber and Kaley’s dresses look similar to each other too.) This is just bad with those giant stripes in scalloped lace.


Finally, I would say that Emmy Rossum got the best Lhuillier but that’s just because I like her. There’s something off about the bustline and I don’t like that dusty rose color but it would be amazing without the gathered top. The rest of the dress is amazing and I love the criss cross fabric along the waist.

    My wedding dress was like Emmy’s, not pink tho obvs.

  2. Tassiegal says:

    WTF is that flu shot thing? Ok I might be going full tinfoil hat but that was just next level NWO cray cray.

    Amber Heard looks ridiculous. Like Marie Antoinette crossed with Celine Dion.

    Emmy Rossum’s dress is real purdy.

    Heidi Klum looks pregnant.

    Keri Russell looks waaaaaaay too bony and thin.

    That is all.

  3. Snazzy says:

    Jameela wore jeans under her dress because it was cold 🙂

    • Ifeoma says:

      I was about to say that. LOL. I love her. I can’t believe The Good Place didn’t win any award. I literally have never heard of the Kominsky method before and I couldn’t get past episode 1 of the Marvellous Mrs Maisel.

      • ichsi says:

        SAME! I’ve heard people rave about that Mrs Maisle thing but I found it utterly boring.

      • SK says:

        I also could not stand marvellous Mrs Maisel – contrived cliche rubbish not half as charming as it thinks it is

      • Chicken says:

        @SK “contrived cliche rubbish not half as charming as it thinks it is” pretty much sums up Amy Sherman-Palladino’s … everything.

    I just started watching the americans. it’s been on the list for ages. just finished the sopranos repeat and was like, yes, bindge all the way. keri russell is so cute, and i just want to wear everything her character wears in that show. maybe i should do the felicity repeat as well.

    • Esmom says:

      Me too, I just stated season 3! It took me 3 or 4 tries to get into it and I’m glad I finally did. Her wardrobe is amazing although I have to say that other than some of her disguises it doesn’t always capture how truly fug the styles of the 80s were.

      I think she’s looked better on the red carpet but she’s always beautiful to me.

      Linda C is also so beautiful to me but her styling here doesn’t do her any favors.

      • Kitten says:

        I think Linda and Emmy Rossum are two of the most beautiful women in television yet somehow they both look terrible here.

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      She looks the only woman ageing naturally on the red carpet
      She should be what Kate Windsor aspires to be
      Love the Americans

  5. BooRadley says:

    I disagree, I like Isla’s dress, really pretty.

  6. onerous says:

    Kaley Cuoco looks like she and Keith Urban got together and flat ironed each other’s hair. Terrible!

  7. Lucy says:

    My 14 year-old past self cannot believe my current self is looking at a non-photoshopped picture of Tom Kaulitz wearing an actual tux!! Lol. I don’t think Heidi and him will last, tbh.

  8. LT says:

    I don’t wear Louboutins, but I have a pair of St Laurent heels that were equally expensive and about 4 inches high. They are actually quite comfortable – usually the more expensive shoes are more comfortable, though certain styles of shoes (like strappy sandals) hurt no matter how well made they are.

  9. Louisa says:

    Keri Russell was my favorite of the night. She is just so pretty and they are such a smokin’ hot couple. I’m binging on the Americans now (just started season 5) so was really happy with their win.

    • ichsi says:

      I was late for the party too, but The Americans is one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time! Also I love Kerri’s dress too. It’s a style I love but that looks cheap on my body (boobs)’ She on the other hand makes it elegant and timeless

  10. Rice says:

    What’s that ribbon on Amber’s hand?

  11. Aerohead21 says:

    No mention of the Time’s Up ribbon, CB?

  12. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Unpopular opinion I really wish Keri or even Julia had won over Sandra Oh (the real mvp of Killing Eve was Jodie Comer how in holy heck wasn’t she nominated?) but anyway… I feel like Keri has worn some version of this dress a few times now, it’s fine, she pretty, but I’m a little bored. She and Matthew are the cutest though and so happy The Americans won.

    Kaley’s dress is like…a bit too banquet wedding table cloth or something. I like that it has pockets though. Jameela’s dress is also kinda napkin-y. I don’t know why but I kinda like Amber Heard’s slighlty more 80s ballgown aesthetic – still not a huge fan of the dark top huge white skirt but the elongated bodice with asymetric top feels fresher somehow than a lot of these ballgown-y dresses. Very Melanie Griffith in Working Girl.

    Isla Fisher is adorable how dare they put her in that Spanish loo roll topper doll dress?

    Emmy Rossum’s dress is kinda extra but pretty but the hair and makeup just don’t go with it, why all the slicked back hair on this carpet? A soft updo, less heavy eye makeup and rosier lip would have been cuter but what do I know. I feel like most of the makeup artists here just all went hard/edgy regardless of what people were wearing? I don’t get it.

    • Kitten says:

      Have you ever seen anyone who looks good with the slicked-back hair? My GOD is it so unflattering and I really just don’t understand it. Hope that hairstyle dies soon.

      • Mrs. Darcy says:

        @Kitten – It is definitely a select few I think! I think it can look ok with a suit or very plain gown maybe on someone like Charlize Theron but it’s unbelievable how many people they sent out looking awful here – they’ve gone for this really ott stiff look with so many on this red carpet regardless of the rest of their looks, it’s like they have treated it more like a runway show by the same designer than a Hollywood red carpet,, v. bizarre! Also it looks especially AWFUL with long hair imo, it’s very mullet-y or something. :-0

  13. abbi says:

    I love Keri! What is going on with Amber Heard, she is still a hot mess and dead-eyed.

  14. Mgsota says:

    Amber is giving me Helena Bonham Carter vibes….which HBC can pull off, Amber can’t. And she was terrible in Aquaman.

  15. Renee says:

    I love Isla’s dress & hair. That hair is incredible!

  16. holly hobby says:

    What is up with the make up? It just looks smeared on and brown? Did everyone use Jamie Lee Curtis’ make up artist – who I think should burn his/her license because the make up sucks here!

  17. Marianne says:

    Amber Heard looks like she came from an 80s prom

  18. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I love Isla’s dress. And heels are heels. It doesn’t matter how expensive they are – if you’re in them for hours your feet will hurt.

  19. CooCooCatchoo says:

    Kaley Cuolo always looks like she’s just smelled a fart. Sorry, but she’s got one red carpet facial expression and it’s that one! Emmy Rossum always comes across as tryhard. She’s boring here to me. I love Isla Fisher, she seems fun and not afraid to be goofy. I just wonder how she can stand to be with Sasha Baron Cohen. Every one of his characters reminds me of grown-up versions of obnoxious, over-indulged childreb. I wonder if he’s like that in real-life, too.
