Samira Wiley in Genny at the 2021 Emmys: best suit look?

One of my favorite looks last night was Handmaid’s Tale’s Samira Wiley’s Genny suit, complete with a white shirt and a tie. She commanded that carpet and I loved her hair and makeup too. At first I thought that the gold accents on the suit were little stars but they spell out Genny, the designer. Samira was nominated for Supporting Actress, which went to Gillian Anderson. She’s been nominated two other times in this category and she won an Emmy in 2018 for Guest Actress for this role.

Kathryn Hahn was in a strapless black Lanvin suit with a giant belt and a kind of short built in cape. She complemented the look with a gorgeous emerald necklace. That belt is so 80s and on point for Kathryn. (It seems to be a signature for the line, as Kerry Washington just wore a little Lanvin dress with the same giant belt.) Kathryn was nominated for Wandavision, which got shut out. I think that the Emmy voters just don’t watch or understand shows that aren’t strict comedy or drama.

Samira’s costar Madeline Brewer was in a scoop neck metallic bronze Tom Ford. Her styling is gorgeous but this is a miss for me, especially with those shoes. This was Madeline’s first nomination for an Emmy, which is hard to believe. I could have sworn she’d already won one.

    I was scrolling and stopped to look at Samira Wiley’s outfit and it grew on me and then more I took it in, the more I liked it. She owned the looked and the entire look was cohesive and worked together – from head to toe.

    I want Samira’s suit. And I want to not have seen those blue satin mule/slides.

    Samira Wiley’s look, styling included, is great, but the fit could be better.

    Love Kathryn Hahn and Jen Barkley is one of my favorite Parks and Rec recurring characters of all-time – poncho! – which is saying a lot because there were so many of them (any scene with Dr. Harris stands out too), but this look is not great. Her shoes, however, are amazing. Not with this look, as the hem of the pants and the straps cut her leg off awkwardly, but with a dress perhaps? I need them and I don’t often think that about things I see on the red carpet. They’re probably worth more than my car, but a girl can dream.

    I have but one question for Madeline Brewer: Why, why, why the blue shoes? The dress is so sexy, but this is a scroll down fug if ever there has been one.

      I think PONCHO! every time I see Kathryn Hahn too, LOL! I love this look on her, but think it’s too casual for the Emmys.

      Samira looks great. She’s a fantastic actress.

    Samir’s looked great The Handmaids Tale was so good and deserved some recognition. Tired of the Crown getting everything.

  5. Sof says:

    Not a big fan of Samira’s suit per se, the trousers are not diong it for me. But the styling, her face, the attitude are a 10 for me.

    Great looks. The top two are outstanding. But those blue shoes are quite sad.
