The worst dressed stars of the 2021 Emmys


After last year’s all-virtual Emmys, the stars attending this year’s awards were no doubt excited to bring some primetime glamour, however some may want to reevaluate their post-pandemic fashion. 

Several celebrities at the soirée, held at The Event Deck at L.A. Live, missed the mark with their sartorial choices — while others across the pond at Netflix‘s Emmy party in London made equally off-putting fashion picks.

In fact, while The Crown was a critical favorite with seven nominations this year, its stars led the worst dressed pack, with Emma Corrin making a truly bizarre statement in a yellow bonnet and long, fingerless gloves and Gillian Anderson posing in a burlap and metal number.

SNL‘s Aidy Bryant, The Handmaid’s Tale star Madeline Brewer, and This is Us actor Chris Sullivan have also landed spots on DailyMail.com’s worst dressed list this year for stepping outside the box.

With travel from the UK to the US is still restricted due to the pandemic, many of Hollywood’s biggest stars celebrated the Emmy’s at a second event across the pond.

Netflix hosted an Emmys party at Soho House in London, which is where the stars of their hit show The Crown turned up in red carpet finery — or in some cases, not-so-finery.

Leading the celebrities who made questionable choices was Emma Corrin, 25, who took a turn from classic Princess Diana style with a very experimental ensemble.

The star donned a strapless pale yellow column dress that would have been unremarkable — though shapeless — on its own, but it came paired with bizarre yellow gloves.

The gloves came up to her forearm but were fingerless at the tips, revealing extremely sharp, claw-like black nails.

Most eyebrow-raising of all, though, was the yellow bonnet she wore, which looked like a cross between a swimming cap and the bonnets worn by handmaids in the Handmaid’s Tale. It fastened under her chin. 

Within moments of photos of Emma hitting the internet, the star was already inspiring jokes and memes on Twitter

While plenty of fans were head-over-heels for her bold, experimental choice, not everyone saw the appeal.

Within moments of photos of Emma hitting the internet, the star was already inspiring jokes and memes on Twitter.

Social media users compared her to a newborn baby in a knit cap, the lead character from Where the Wild Things Are, and an Amish sex kitten.

‘I’m getting a sexy Handmaid’s Tale vibe,’ wrote one, while a second commented: ‘It’s like if a stick of butter had a baby with a cat.’

‘Didn’t know the Amish did awards ceremonies,’ penned a third.

‘Emma Corrin is going right from the #Emmys2021 to the swim meet with that fashion bonnet,’ tweeted LA Times Senior Feature Writer Adam Tschorn. 

Meanwhile, Emma's co-star Gillian Anderson also hit the red carpet at the London event

It also featured a cutaway section at the midriff, with the top strung with thin swinging ropes of material decorated with metal odds and ends.

The dress gave the effect of something that Gillian put together at a crafts table in her garage with spare nuts and bolts — which certainly might have been fun at a less formal event but felt like an odd choice for the Emmys.

It was a rough night in general for fashion-loving fans of The Crown who prefer a more classic look. Joining Gillian and Emma in London was co-star Emerald Fennell, who played Camilla Parker Bowles on the series.

Emerald adopted a more whimsical look in a glittering tulle-overlay number with a bright neon green trim at the hem and along the ends of the flowing bell sleeves.

Childlike blue hearts adorned the waist of the Valentino dress, with the motif continuing down the skirt, mingling with the sequined butterflies, bejeweled flowers, and embroidery.

SNL star Aidy Bryant, 34, embraced her inner flower child with a custom embroidered green number by Simone Rocha that was part Woodstock, part Anne of Green Gables.

Though her red floral headband may have been a great pick for another event, combined with the floral dress and red basket bag, it seemed the Shrill actress would have been more comfortable skipping through the woods to grandmother’s house than strutting down the red carpet.

Her Hulu colleague, The Handmaid’s Tale star Madeline Brewer, 29, stepped out in a look may also not have been for everyone.

Her slinky copper dress — worn without any foundational garments — was certainly a very sexy head-turner (and her matching copper eyeshadow was all bedroom eyes), but the dress felt more like a sexy bedroom slip than an award show fashion moment, particularly given its ultra-low-cut neckline.

The actress also made a strange choice of clashing cobalt show sandals to finish the look.  

Kathryn Hahn is a rare actress that seems to be universally beloved, but her red carpet look was a bit more controversial

The actress added an element confusion with a very oversized black belt

Kathryn Hahn, 48, is a rare actress that seems to be universally beloved, but her red carpet look was a bit more controversial.

The actress — who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Disney+’s Wandavision — donned a black peplum jumpsuit by Lanvin. 

‘I like a jumpsuit, so I’m enjoying it,’ she told Queer Eye star Karamo on the E! red carpet.

That would have been simple enough on its own, but they were finished off with a large — very large — black belt that spanned nearly the entire length of her torso.

While it might be impossible to look away from the belt long enough to notice the rest of her look, the star did add a pretty Briony Raymond Estate necklace.  

This Is Us star Chris Sullivan may as well have been representing Tiger King in his tiger-striped suit

Men have it very easy for award shows: They just need to throw on a black tux or suit and show up.

But with all the women having fun with their most head-turning couture, it’s unsurprising that some guys would want to get a bit more experimental, too.

Unfortunately, that means some of their choices aren’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea. 

Chris Sullivan, 41, was at the event for his NBC show, This Is Us, but he may as well have been representing Tiger King in his tiger-striped suit. The very bold brown and black ensemble featured a shiny finish, ensuring that absolutely no one could miss him. 

He and his wife, actress Rachel, coordinated in custom suits by Courtney Mays, Rachel sporting a blue geomtric-patterned one.

‘We’ve literally never felt better on a red carpet,’ Chris told told Access Hollywood. ‘There’s nothing hidden in these outfits. Everything you need to know, you can see.’ 

Schitt's Creek star and creator Dan Levy (pictured), 38, picked an exciting blue hue for his red carpet look — but oddly, he topped off dress pants and a shirt with a garment that looks like a cross between a tuxedo jacket and a silk bath robe

Meanwhile, Schitt’s Creek star and creator Dan Levy, 38, picked an exciting blue hue for his red carpet look — but oddly, he topped off dress pants and a shirt with a garment that looks like a cross between a tuxedo jacket and a silk bath robe. 

‘Dan Levy apparently came to the #Emmys directly from Ebenezer Scrooge’s house,’ quipped one Twitter user. 

But despite the cozy robe inspiration for the Valentino Couture look raising eyebrows, it does have quite a lot of fan.

‘Dan Levy looks like he DIYed his robe into an expensive suit and i’m kinda here for it,’ wrote another Twitter user. 

Insecure star Issa Rae looked nearly naked in a glittering see-through mesh dress worn with just a pair of underwear underneath

The heavy pink floral embroidery on late-night talk show host Amber Ruffin's dress made it look a bit like repurposed curtains taken from an ornately-decorated home

Then there were some of the funniest ladies in the business, who certainly always bring the laughs — but didn’t necessarily bring best dressed material this time around (pictured left to right: Issa Rae and Amber Ruffin)

Then there were some of the funniest ladies in the business, who certainly always bring the laughs — but didn’t necessarily bring best dressed material this time around.

Amy Poehler, 50, started off strong with a dazzling skirt or dress, but looks like she got chilly heading out the door and topped it with a satin blazer from another outfit. 

Insecure star Issa Rae, 26, who is nominated for HBO’s A Black Lady Sketch Show, looked nearly naked in a glittering see-through mesh dress by Aliétte worn with just a pair of underwear underneath.

Late-night talk show host Amber Ruffin’s hair and makeup looked stunning for the glam event, and it was clear that she was going for a classic, feminine vibe with her pale blue one-shoulder gown.

But the 42-year-old’s heavy pink floral embroidery made the dress look a bit like repurposed curtains taken from an ornately-decorated home.
