Unlike this year’s Golden Globes and SAG Awards, the Emmy Awards didn’t inspire me to bestow my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award upon anyone. Too much cement, too many safe looks. But there was one dress that made me think, “I would wear that”: Emilia Clarke’s (Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones) dress from Chanel’s resort collection.
Well, maybe I already wore it.
I adore purple and high/low hemlines (aka mullet dresses). I think my purple and black Tom Ford shoes might have gone better with Emilia’s dress than those conservative nude pumps. And I would have happily loaned out my amethyst Marie Antoinette ring for the evening.
Call me before your next event, Emilia. I’ll get you all decked out.
By the way, Girls was robbed!
UPDATED TO ADD: How could I forget Portia de Rossi’s lace jumpsuit? It was offbeat enough to be deserving of a Wear What You Want award, but the subdued color stops me from giving it my combo award.
Don’t be sad, Portia! You’ve already received the ultimate honor: my stepson named his cat after you.
