Back by popular demand, M and J are sharing their thoughts on Emmy fashion with all of you. They are 6.5 and 4.5 years old, respectively.
Ellie Kemper, in custom Naeem Khan:
M: She looks like a daylight rainbow. She could win a first place award.
J: That one looks kind of….cool!
Gina Rodriguez, in Lorena Sarbu:
M: Her dress looks very very fluffy, like a pink, pink cloud.
J: Aw! That one looks so cute! Because, I like the sparkles right there (points to bodice).
Heidi Klum, in Atelier Versace couture:
M: I don’t know what to say!
J: WHOA! That one looks like a giant banana! A giant banana that is EATING YOU!
Christina Hendricks, in Naeem Khan, & Geoffrey Arend, in Brooks Brothers:
M: Her dress looks like waterfalls of beads.
J: That’s going to be the hardest one! The man and the dress….I have to do both! There’s too many beads. His hair is cute. I LOVE the purple coat!
Taraji P. Henson, in custom Alexander Wang:
M: Most of the dress looks like a dark night but where she pulls it up it looks like stars, so I think it looks like a starry dark, dark night.
J: The dress looks like a giant monster of spiders!
Kathryn Hahn, in Vivienne Westwood:
M: Wow. Wow wow wow wow wow. Her dress looks like a garden full of flowers. I like it.
J: Not cute at all.
Uzo Aduba, in Jonathan Cohen:
M: It looks like spilled paint on the floor.
J: I like the pink and blue on her dress. (Me: I think that’s gray, J.) No, it’s definitely dark blue.
Joanne Froggatt, in J. Mendel:
M: She looks like a superhero with that black cape on her.
J: I like the cape and her hair, too.
Naomi Grossman, in Jun Escario:
M: HUH?!?! I bet the Odd Squad can’t solve THIS case!
J: Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…..why is her body wrapping around her dress?
M: Looks like tomorrow he is going to bloom up into a flower!
J: That looks too cute on him! I love his jeans the best because I love the color black.
Me: Johnny. You don’t wear jeans to the Emmys. I do love the purple though!
Teyonah Parris, in Francesca Miranda:
M: It kinda looks like my bed sheet. It has polka dots just like this dress, but with different colors.
J: I like it a lot! It looks like a checkerboard.
Me: Her hair is perfection!
Laura Prepon, in Christian Siriano:
M: Looks like today she’s going to be queen! And her dress matches the red carpet.
J: Better than the checkerboard dress.
Me: Ahhhhh! A fungus is attacking her shoulders!
Jaime Alexander, in Armani Prive:
M: Her dress looks like the outer space.
J: Better than that other one.
Claire Danes, in Prada:
M: Her dress looks like grape jelly.
J: Cool! I like the purple and black stripes on it. The chains are so cool!
Danielle Brooks, in Christian Siriano:
M: Those colors make her dress look like a butterfly!
J: I LOVE THAT ONE! I love the blue and the yellow. She looks like a Fashion!
Jill Soloway, in Bottega Veneta:
M: She kinda looks like a frisco ball! (Pretty sure he means a disco ball!)
J: Wow! I love the white polka dots and I like her hair.
Viola Davis, in Carmen Marc Valvo:
M: Her whole dress looks like a snowy storm and the middle looks like a tree with leaves falling from it.
J: I love everything! I like her lipstick, I like her hair, I like that she’s holding a trophy. And her hair is too cute!
Kerry Washington, in Marc Jacobs:
M: The middle park looks like sand close up to the waves.
J: I usually like her hair but not now. I do like her shoes. The dress looks fashiony. Yuck that you can see her underwear.
Me: Futuristic pioneer chic?
Allison Janney, in LaBourjoisie:
M: This dress is hard to explain but it looks really good!
J: I like the flowers on her dress and I like the little sparkles on her dress and I like the bracelets on her skin too.
Joanna Newsom, in Delpozo:
M: Hahahahahaha! It looks like a red waterfall inside of a castle.
J: Whooooaaaa I love this one! I like the circle thing.
Me: It’s a complete bathroom set from the 70s! Bright ugly curtain and weird toilet seat cover!
Maggie Gyllenhaal, in Oscar de la Renta:
M: Aaaaahhhhh! It’s TOO GOOD! Really, I mean it! It’s actually good. AWESOME.
J: It reminds me of a swamp, because I love swamps. I think swamps are so cute.
And last but not least…..
January Jones, in Ulyana Sergeenko:
M: It looks like a plant with a flower on it. It’s good and bad.
J: Her feet are, like, invisible! I like the starfish in the middle. It looks like a disaster. I love it, even though it’s a DISASTER!
M: Joanne Fogget (Uzo Aduba gets honorable mention)
J: Heidi Klum
Me: I can’t choose just one. Loving Ellie Kemper, Joanne Froggatt, Allison Janney, and Sarah Hyland
M: Naomi Grossman (“Mommy, don’t write that she’s the ugliest because I don’t want her feelings to be hurt. It just looks kind of weird. No…interesting.”)
J: Naomi Grossman
Me: I think Heidi Klum is a given here. Also on my list, Joanna Newsom and Kathryn Hahn.
