Against all odds, the Emmys happened. And against all odds, there was fashion! Sort of! Mostly! Sometimes overwhelmingly so! Many of our stars had to figure out their looks with a slightly smaller team than usual so we are not only grading on a curve, we are also changing one of the piles this time around. That's right! I am eliminating The Bad this time (even though... you know there definitely were) and instead instituting a temporary pile: Doing A Bit. Alex Borstein should be excited to have finally found her place on WTS. We're going to cover (in this order): The Good, The Meh, The WTF, and Doing A Bit. We shall start, as we always do, with our queen.
Regina King!Who but Regina King could serve us High Fashion On The Roof Of My Building But OMG This Wind and then turn around and put on the fuchsia blazer that I have only seen in my dreams and a Breonna Taylor shirt to accept her incredibly well-deserved award. Regina King is the best actor of her generation and I'm glad she is getting many prizes. Who else could deliver all the best lines in Jerry Maguire, captivate as Sister Night, and perhaps most importantly be Riley AND Huey. If you're thinking that maybe it didn't matter what Regina King wore, you might be right. But I love the color saturated updated 80s silhouettes she gave us and whatever, like 12 people read this so I am basically just writing in my diary. Dear Diary, I love Regina King. Gotta go, bye.
Regina was not the only person to bring multiple looks to the Distant Emmys! I do not typically agree with Kerry Washington's clothes but I am on board for both of these dresses. I have a quibble about those earrings with the beaded gown but it's small - I'd do posts and then throw some black diamonds on the clavicle - yes, yes, CUAN but in a way that is not terribly offensive to me. Well done, Kerry! For once I didn't hate it!
Continuing the trend of beautiful humans sitting on cushions that don't know how lucky they are, here is Billy Porter giving us Lenny Kravitz's Scarf But Make It Fashion. I am extremely impressed by this outfit because I know when I'm home waiting to appear on awards shows I am typically snacking and I definitely would have spilled.
