Mandy Moore, Marisa Tomei and so many women were in pink and red at the Emmys

I’m going to attempt to include as many pink and red looks from last night as I can find but I’ll surely miss a few. We’ll have full Emmys fashion coverage this morning and our method is somewhat haphazard. First off here’s Mandy Moore in Brandon Maxwell. She combined the trends of giant dresses with reams of fabric with the other big trend, pink and red. This was a color combination I never anticipated and I don’t hate it, I just don’t think I could pull it off. That doesn’t mean I won’t try though. Mandy’s styling was a bit “Valley of The Dolls,” as my girl @Kaiser wrote on twitter, but it goes with this dress.


Everyone is talking about how Mandy was twinning with her co-star Susan Kelechi Watson, who was in Rubin Singer. Mandy even posted to Instagram about it. Her gown is just a column dress with puff sleeves, but her styling is lovely. This is Us was nominated in several categories but didn’t win in any.

Zoe Kazan was in Gucci and this dress is ridiculous but after she defended The Fug Girls I love her. She is so cute and she always dresses quirky like this. Please don’t let her and Paul Dano ever split.



Marisa Tomei, who was one of the last presenters of the night alongside Norman Lear (he’s 97!), was in Ralph & Russo. This was one of my favorite pink and red looks. I like how the fabric at the shoulder mirrors the sash at the waist. She’s one of those actresses whose age I look up every time I cover her. She’s 54!



Taraji P. Henson’s chiffon Vera Wang was probably my least favorite pink and red gown (apart from Zoe Kazan’s Gucci but she gets a pass). Maybe I would like this better if the bodice was cut differently. It might work without the deep v neck and if the skirt wasn’t sheer with a miniskirt under it.

    I’m loving this color combo.

    • Seraphina says:

      Me too, I think they look great. Except for the Gucci dress

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      Me too, because intense childhood memories! I had some kind of dolls, maybe barbies, wearing that combo. Something similar happens to me on the Kardashian threads when they wear bright neon colours: instant happy early 90es flashback (european childhood, your mileage may vary). That’s probably the only positive emotion the Kardashians will ever spark in me LOL

  2. ichsi says:

    Oh I love Kazan’s dress! Yes, never a fan of big bows, but this is quirky and fun and she really is suited for the lightly gothic look of this. It’s great! Susan’s boobs look in pain, but the earrings are excellent.

    • Sara says:

      I really love her quirky style. Contrary to Zoey Deschanel, who seems to be buried under the twee, Zoe Kazan looks always very much herself, never in costume.

    • Erinn says:

      I do too! And I normally would hate everything about it. But the black kind of grounds it, I guess. She’s definitely pulling it off.

  3. grabbyhands says:

    HAHA!! When I saw Mandy Moore’s gown I thought it looked like she was channeling Jacqueline Susann. Glad it wasn’t just me.

  4. BayTampaBay says:

    Does anyone else thinks that Cathy Cambridge resembles Mandy Moore in the picture posted or have I just not had enough coffee to see straight?

    • Escondista says:

      Cathy doesn’t even come close to Mandy. Cathy’s skin always looks at bit ravaged by dehydration, smoking (past or present), sun, and rapid weight loss.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    I like the color combination, but don’t really care for any of these dresses. Taraji’s in particular has some odd lines in the bust, and Mandy’s is way too low cut.

  6. Pixie says:

    Mandy Moore looks like a Madame Tussauds wax figure of herself, but I am into it. I think she is going for a timeless look with her hair/look in keeping with her character on This is Us. Which, btw, is my absolute favourite show at the moment. The acting, writing and pacing are phenomenal and it has genuinely made me cry and laugh and cry again, numerous times. Mandy and Milo Ventimiglia’s chemistry is unbelievable. Should have won last night!

  7. Some chick says:

    Ha! I have been wearing pink and red together for years! Of course, this means it’s probably going to be played before too long… bah.

    TBH I love all of these looks! Especially Marisa. The first one is Siriano. He does such great red carpet work!

    The last one, I get the critique, but I also can see what they were trying for with it. I can totally imagine going for it. I do love a good caftan… especially in pink and red. It just needs to be less sheer (double layer of fabric perhaps) and a better underlayer. IDK, I think it can be fixed tho!

  8. Marianne says:

    I actually really like the retro feel of Mandy’s dress.

    • livealot says:

      Yes her entire look is stunning to me. She looks great. Taraji looks “current” but i adore Mandy’s retro feel.

  9. Valiantly Varnished says:

    This was such a random color combo to see so many times last night. Mandy’s dress and entire look was my fave. Loved the 60’s hair and makeup. Taraji’s was my least favorite. The bodice of that dress looks super tight and uncomfortable- especially right at her stomach. It looks painful.

  10. Case says:

    I don’t really like the pink and red color combo. Looks like Valentine’s Day to me.

  11. Jessie says:

    I hate pink and red together. it’s physically painful.

  12. Jessica says:

    This dress makes Taraji’s midriff look like a 3rd boob. Or something.

  13. Faithmobile says:

    I love pink and red color blocking almost as much as purple and red. It’s about time.

  14. Grant says:

    I love, love, love Mandy’s dress!

  15. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Out of all those dresses that are the same colors, Mandy’s looks the best. She also looked really great in it.

  16. Valerie says:

    I love all of these. And Zoe Kazan! I saw her mom, Robin Swicord, speak at a TIFF talk a few months ago and she was fantastic. She talked (among other things) about how they raised their daughters on classic movies and how it was part of family time for them,

  17. Yes Doubtful says:

    Tomei looks lovely. Usually I love Taraji’s style, but that was a miss. Moore’s dress looked too “old” for her.
