2015 Emmy Awards: After Nyne’s Best Dressed

Everyone seems to be talking about last night’s Emmy Award winners and record-breakers… but, laudable though they may be, let’s not allow all that to lead us astray from careful consideration of that other crucial component of any event incorporating open-air carpeting – the outfits. Our Fashion Editor picks her top 5…

5. Taylor Schilling

Taylor won the OITNB frock-off by a mile (soz, Laverne) in this sunny Stella number – set off to perfection by that tousled bob.

4. Zoe Kazan

Was Zoe attempting to hypnotise onlookers with this magic eye-esque Miu Miu gown? Well, if so, I think it worked on me. Canny accessorising has transformed it from beachy to red-carpet-ready with applause-worthy aplomb.

3. Lady Gaga

Gaga in an LBD? Surely one of the biggest frock-shocks of the night! But she looked sleek, chic and Old Hollywood perfect, with that mega hip detail adding just enough Ga to reassure us that she hadn’t, in fact, been replaced by a body snatcher.

2. Claire Danes

A refreshingly risk-taking choice from Claire, and one which paid off big time. This super-luxe take on the vest dress showed off her toned torso (and those arms!) to perfection, whilst obviating the need to go down that oh-so-overdone cutout route.

  1. Christina Hendricks

But After Nyne’s Best Dressed Emmy-Goer 2015 Award has to go to… Christina, for this studded stunner. Combining classic silhouette with bad gal embellishment, it quite simply rocked.
