Yay or Nay: Emmy's 2019 Style Recap on Great Day Washington

 

The red carpet was purple for the 2019 Emmy Awards and television royalty definitely rose to the occasion, delivering current style trends as well as returning us to past Hollywood glam. Overall, bright jewel toned colors were the IT factor of the night, as seen on Zendaya.

 
Although the night was full of amazing fashions from some of the top designers, quite a few styles stood out to me as an absolute YASSSSSS, while others missed the mark. Feel free to comment below and let me know if you agree/disagree with my picks.

Valentine's Day Slay
Pink and Red were the color blocking combo of the night at the Emmys and in my opinion, Mandy Moore was the best of the best, followed closely by Taraji P. Henson. I was especially excited to these colors as a fashion do because I picked the combo as a Spring 2018 fashion trend



I was not a fan of Dascha Polanco's pink and white number - as puffy as the sleeves were, they fell flat for me.

Who Wears the Pants
I love love love love dressing up in pants, so the tuxedos, jumpsuits and formal pants were definitely a hit for me! The men got in on the action wearing statement tuxes in bold colors, fabrics and designs. RuPaul's tuxedo was my favorite - I love the abstract floral pattern, the soft but bold pink, and the versatility. I could see this on a woman or a man.

The structure of Angela Bassett's jumpsuit was spot on. She looked amazing and comfy. I love the little cutout above the waist and the bag that looks like a piece of candy. And Kerry Washington proves that simple is far from boring in a tuxedo blouse and seamed sequin pants. Perfection!

Unfortunately, Amy Poehler missed the mark for me, with a jumpsuit that resembled a mechanic's overalls.

Romantic Florals

As I mentioned in my 2019 Fall Fashion trends post, romantic florals are definitely in. While she might not have won the Game of Thrones, Lena Headey definitely was the Queen of the Floral category. 

Kendall Jenner, not so much... the dress was beautiful but the latex top was awful.

As Simple as Black and White
My favorite dress of the night was a tie between Zendaya and Jamie Comer. The "Killing Eve" star slayed us all in her sexy and structured gown by Tom Ford, with cutouts and slits in all the right places.

"Pose" actor, Indya Moore, did not fair as well with her dress choice - I thought it looked a little too "club-wear" for the Emmys - maybe the MTV awards?

And with deepest regret, I must report that I was not a fan of Billy Porter's outfit. I love Billy, think he's a great actor and go crazy each and every time he pushes the style envelope but this was not it for me. I likened him to a certain movie character in my tv recap. NO SHADE!!!

Shiny Things
Metallics are another Fall 2019 trend and Niecy Nash wowed me in this gown by Christian Siriano. That Body!!!!
Others wore the trend as well
 

And while Brienne of Tarth is one of my faves from GoT, I was confused by her Jesus of Nazareth fashion choice. I know it's Gucci Resort - so what. This is the Emmys not cosplay (her earrings were fire though)!
