Worst Dressed

James Van Der Beek definitely stood out, going above and beyond in his crushed velvet rose jacket. Bonus points for thinking outside the black tie, but he might have strayed from the box a bit too much.

Kathryn Newton made a splash in her vibrant yellow dress that included a shredded skirt and a shirtless vest.

Dascha Polanco 2019 Emmys

Dascha Polanco was striking on the carpet, with her beautiful strapless and form-fitting gown, but the oversized pink bows on the arms were a little over the top. Her hair and makeup was stunning, however.

Jenny McCarthy took a risk and it didn’t pay off — her belt and shoes were so wrong.

Greta Lee 2019 Emmys

Greta Lee went very green with her look, which included a bunchy and confusing top. Bonus points for the pockets, though!

Natasha Lyonne 2019 Emmys

Natasha Lyonne had a bit too much gold going on with her look — perhaps ditching the droopy bow could have saved it?

Amy Poehler 2019 Emmys

Amy Poehler’s gold pantsuit was underwhelming and way too long but looked majorly comfortable, at least.
