Jodie Comer wins in white Tom Ford at the Emmys: stunning or plain?

Jodie Comer attends The 71st Emmy Awards - Arrivals  in Los Angeles

Did Tom Ford know that Jodie Comer would win the Emmy, and that’s why he only dressed her? Perhaps. Or maybe Tom Ford is just a big Killing Eve fan and he wanted to do something special for Jodie. In any case, Jodie Comer got it all – she was the only woman at the Emmys in Tom Ford and she won an Emmy for Drama Actress. The dress looks suspiciously comfortable, and I do like the design – I think I probably would have preferred it in a strong color though, like a dark green or a rich purple. Comer has the most charming accent too:

Oh, and before I forget: Jodie told a story on the red carpet about how she heard that Prince William is a big Killing Eve fan and she expressed surprise that he has time to watch the series. It was funny because… of course William binge-watches Netflix shows. Of course.

Sandra Oh is Jodie’s costar in Killing Eve (they’re co-leads) and Sandra seemed genuinely thrilled for Jodie, giving her a big hug as Jodie walked to the stage. Sandra wore this pretty pink Zac Posen gown which was very cute and only a little bit cloying. I thought it looked better in motion.

And here’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the star of Fleabag. She writes the show, she produced it, she created it and she stars in it, and people absolutely love her and the show. She won a slew of Emmys last night for it, for Comedy Actress, Comedy Writing and the show took home Best Comedy. She wore this simple Monique Lhuillier look – I think that was a smart choice. She wasn’t looking to be the biggest fashionista there, she just wanted to look cute and pulled-together and it worked. She’s adorable too!

    Love the white dress on her and how she looked. Not sure about the shoes though. Looks like they were an after thought and she just grabbed a pair out of her closet.

    • Obvious is Obvious says:

      Totally agree! A metallic or sparkly pair of shoes would have sealed the look.

      I would have even chosen nude over black.

      • Seraphina says:

        A beautiful rhinestone encrusted and delicate shoe. Nothing in your face, just delicate enough to be icing on the cake.

    Yeeeahhhh, The Priest in da house!! Argh the pic of Sian, Phoebe and Andrew together is just everything! Dapper talented bringers of joy!! So glad the show did so well and Phoebe looked like the queen she is.

  3. Ement says:

    Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a genius, fleabag season 2 is a masterpiece. she deserves every single award

    • minx says:

      When Fleabag looks at the camera a few minutes into episode 1 and says “This is a love story” I thought WTF? But it really was. Six perfect episodes.

      • ichsi says:

        Love story on so many levels too, but I’m not over how much the most obvious one between her and [spoiler] grabbed me. I’m usually so not into romance on film or TV but this was so so good!

      • tealily says:

        That whole episode was one of my favorite things ever on television. I could watch it over and over.

    • crummycake says:

      Absolutely agree! I adored the first season and was really worried that the second season would be disappointing only to be absolutely blown away by it! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show with every bit of my heart and soul. And although I am sad, I do think that it is probably right for Phoebe to leave Fleabag where it ended. . . at least for now. It is really the most perfect show I have ever watched. <3

    Jodie Comer is exceptionally talented, gorgeous and humble.. Absolutely mesmerising as Villenelle. I hope fame doesn’t change her

  5. N says:

    ALL of them are awesome!

  6. Carol says:

    I thought Jodie Comer looked perfect at the Emmy’s and I was so glad she won. She is amazing in Killing Eve.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      She’s so good in Killing Eve. I’m so happy for her. Sandra was very sweet when Jodie won! She looked very supportive and comforting.

  7. Alexandria says:

    Haha why wouldn’t William have time? He has an army of help, Kate and Carol also help with the kids and he doesn’t have a 9 to 5 job. He’s not studying for another degree either.

    • My3cents says:

      Hmmmm….wonder if we should recommend a little series called “The Crown “to him?
      Maybe he’ll get an idea what the life of a working royal looks like..

  8. Lucy2 says:

    They all look beautiful! Very happy that fleabag won, it was a great show, and Jodie too, she is awesome on Killing Eve.

  9. CROWHOOD says:

    Killing Eve and Fleabag are two EXCELLENT shows. Fleabag is maybe the best show I have Seen in years.

    • minx says:

      Same, Fleabag is perfection.

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      Fleabag is my favorite and to think I passed it up so many times…. I only watched it after I saw Killing Eve (which is not a netflix show, but it is available–the first season–on hulu), because I’d seen the same person (PWB) wrote both. She is my total girl and writer crush. I have to watch Crashing sometime, which was just added to netflix.

      • K says:

        I saw Phoebe first on Crashing before the other (far more popular shows) and have a soft spot for that series. I get the crush, she’s funny, weird, beautiful, biting, a heart-breaker. Will watch everything she works on from now on.

  10. Chaine says:

    The fit of Sandra’s dress is perfection but I really don’t like the color.

  11. Lala11_7 says:

    I’m STILL amazed at how good “Fleabag” is…

    • Sarah B says:

      I spent my birthday soaking in a tub with a glass of wine while watching Fleabag on an iPad that was perched on the toilet seat. Best birthday in ages.

  12. Lizzie says:

    they all look very beautiful. i loved jodie comer’s dress. it was both unusual and familiar. tom ford just really knows what he’s doing.

  13. Some chick says:

    I’m pretty sure I’ve read that Tom Ford usually only does one red carpet look per event. Wasn’t there some huge fuss around this at the met gala, Amal wore his dress to the afterparty but not on the carpet? Or was that last year? IDK. It was one of those “fractured mirrorball” dresses. They’re cool but Jennifer Lawrence debuted it at the VF oscars party like four years ago!

    LOL! I’m such a fashion geek.

  14. Jess says:

    So happy for all of them. I love both Fleabag and Killing Eve. The looks are all good but I wish Sandra’s dress was a different shade of pink.

  15. Louisa says:

    Fleabag is amazing and I’m glad for Phoebe and the rest of the cast. Great dress too, though I wish they’d tuck in the waistline of the dress.

  16. MellyMel says:

    Jodie is so pretty & that Emmy is well deserved! Her character in Killing Eve is seriously one of the best I’ve seen in years. Still making my way through Fleabag, but it’s also great.

  17. Sarah B says:

    Best post of the day! These two shows have enthralled me and made me a fan for life. So much talent and it’s wonderful to see it recognized.

  18. Case says:

    Jodie is a phenomenal actress. I actually threw my phone across the couch in excitement when her name was called, lol! So happy for her.

    • Ms Single Malt says:

      I love love love Jodie Comer on Killing Eve. So nice to see her work recognized. Looking forward to season 3.

  19. NessaBee says:

    I love Jodie Comer and I didn’t realize she had this particular UK accent. I was listening to a podcast on which they hosts and guest were talking about distinguishing English accents and apparently there’s a E-W geographic line basically across the country called the Foot-Strut Convergence. Apparently if you/your family are from north of that line you pronounce the OO sound in foot and the U sound in strut identically whereas if you’re from south of that line you pronounce them and OO and UH (ie c-uh-t instead of coooot and stroooot instead of str-uh-t.)
    Anyway, yay Jodie and she looks grand!

  20. chlo says:

    I didn’t like Fleabag season 1 that much (I was in the mood for something a smidge less dark?). But oh my god, Season 2 is everything, I love it, I love all of those actors, they deserve all the accolades, they are all so talented, and whew Andrew Scott.

  21. Jessie says:

    I don’t like the sleeves. It’s like a casual slouchy cardigan (matches her bad hair) tossed over and evening gown

  22. Amelie says:

    No one here has made the connection that Phoebe Waller-Bridge was head writer of Killing Eve for season 1? She is also executive producer. I recently saw the first few episodes of Killing Eve season 2 and her name is all over the credits!

  23. Elizabeth says:

    I thought the shoulders were weird on Jodie’s dress.

  24. Grant says:

    I am SO glad that Jodie Comer won. I think most people expected Sandra Oh to take the award, but I think Jodie gives a much more nuanced performance. Love me some Sandra, but I think she tends to play the same character in every role–a little sass, a little spunk, slightly manic.

  25. laura-j says:

    I was in London and was lucky enough to get a ticket to Fleabag on stage performed by PWB in one of her last performances of it. (I read she is not going to perform it anymore after this last run)… It was everything I hoped it would be.

    PWB is supremely talented and funny. I love her.

  26. tealily says:

    Don’t forget Phoebe Waller-Bridge is also the creator of Killing Eve (which is NOT on Netflix)!

    • Amelie says:

      Yeah it’s not! The first season is on Hulu but not the second season. I got to see the first four episodes of season 2 on a flight recently but waiting for all of season 2 to become available so I can watch the rest. It’s a great show! I have not tried Fleabag yet but will probably now that I keep hearing rave reviews about it.

      • tealily says:

        Fleabag is wonderful for many reasons, but it’s an absolute triumph of structure and form, which probably sounds like a super boring review but it’s really what makes the show so exciting!

    • grumpy says:

      She didn’t create it, she adapted the book for tv. Killing Eve is a book series starting with one called ‘Codename Villanelle’, by Luke Jennings.

  27. Sidewithkids says:

    Does anybody think she’s lying about her age? She seems older than 26 right?

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      She’s been an actress since she was a young teenager, so I don’t think she’s lying about her age.

    • Erinn says:

      I just assumed she was younger than I am, and I’m creeping up to 30 next spring. I’m going to guess she’s mainly just someone who’s been around in the biz for a while, and who can hold their own confidence/skill wise. But to me, she looks 26.

  28. Doglas23 says:

    Jodie looked incredible last night and I’m so happy for her win! I’ve seen every project she’s done since she’s a teenager and she continues to get more incredible. Villanelle is a role of a lifetime! Sandra looked gorgeous too. I’m glad she was genuinely happy for Jodie. Jodie’s natural Liverpudlian accent must have shocked most people thinking she was from London. But like NYC and the USA, England and the UK has different regional accents. I can’t wait to see what projects she gets next!
