The Best And Worst Dressed At Last Night's Emmy Awards 2021

It's officially award season! With the VMAs and the Met Gala only last week, we’re inundated with new celebrity looks.

But just because they’re new, doesn’t mean they’re always good. We’re listing the best and worst dressed from last night’s Emmys.

The Best Dressed

Anya Taylor-Joy

Anya Taylor-Joy took over the red carpet in a breathtaking Dior haute couture gown. The white backless dress was paired with an extravagant gold opera coat and accessorized with Tiffany jewelry. This was probably the most show-stopping look of the night.

Yara Shahidi

Black-ish star Yara Shahidi has become a red carpet darling as of late. Not to be outshone by her Met Gala look from last week, Shahidi donned an emerald green gown (also by Dior) for last night’s awards. The tea-length gown took inspiration from the old Hollywood glamour of stars like Grace Kelly.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

Catherine Zeta-Jones proves that style has no age in a stunning burgundy gown and matching Christian Louboutin heels. The thigh-high split is a classic for Zeta-Jones, and it doesn’t seem to be a style she’s ready to give up quite yet. 

Mandy Moore

Mandy Moore kept the red carpet fresh in a Carolina Herrera gown. But the real star of her look? The clip-in curtain bangs styled by her hairdresser Ashley Streicher. With red lips that matched her dress, this look is fresh, modern, and sweet.

Keri Russell

Keri Russell took a chance on this extravagant Zuhair Murad gown, and it did not disappoint. With simple hair and makeup, she lets the dress do all the talking.

Beth Behrs

Beth Behrs looked like a princess walking down the red carpet in a blush pink Georges Hobeika gown. The faded rhinestones and flowing cape are straight out of a fairytale. 

Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling’s black dress may not be the most ostentatious of the evening, but it wins a top look nonetheless. This is her first time attending the Emmys since 2016, and she chose this Carolina Herrera gown for her grand re-entrance. We applaud.

The Worst Dressed

Emma Corrin

Do we need an explanation? Yes. Do we want one? No.

Angela Bassett

The bright magenta caterpillar is eating Angela Bassett up, instead of letting her gorgeous face shine through. Dresses should not overtake the wearer, and this one is practically hiding her face.

Ellen Pompeo 

Ellen Pompeo’s jumpsuit just doesn’t look fancy enough for an evening event. Paired with a severe hairstyle (and facial expression), Pompeo looks more ready to star in The Matrix than walk the red carpet.

Kathryn Hahn

I have one word for the enormous belt buckle on Kathryn Hahn’s Lanvin ensemble: tacky. Let’s save the belt buckles as big as our faces for the clown shows.

Elizabeth Olsen

We appreciate that Elizabeth Olsen’s white gown was designed by her sisters, we do. But the look is so drab and matronly and ages her significantly. Let’s say, she could have done better and leave it at that. 

Kaley Cuoco

Apparently neon is back this season, and we are not here for it. Unfortunately, Kaley Cuoco’s highlighter yellow dress left a lot to be desired.

Michaela Coel Web

Another offense of the neon color trend. We’re also not a fan of the crop top/gown combo look. Sorry!
