Emmys 2022 was one of the first star-studded, power-packed nights since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, which put a myriad of award shows on hold.
As stars put their best foot forward, celebrities including the likes of Zendaya, Sandra Oh and Elle Fanning, dazzled on the red carpet. But the evening, unfortunately, witnessed a plethora of fashion faux pas too, with some celebrities not getting the memo and turning up in disastrous ensembles.
Compiled from Daily Mail, here is a lowdown of the stars who missed the mark at this year’s event.
1. Julia Garner
She is undeniably a stellar actor and winning the best supporting actor award is proof of the same, however, Garner’s outfit for the Emmys was one big fashion fail! Flaunting her belly in a black velvet dress, the cut-out design was positioned over her stomach in the shape of a large diamond and did not appearing flattering at all.
The dress featured shoulder pads with dull floral sequin appliques dominating the neck and hemline. Garner rounded out the look with a pair of nude sky-high heels and her bright blonde hair was swept up in wild curls.
2. Sydney Sweeney
While the world was surprised with her flawless performance in Euphoria, it was as astonished by her custom Oscar de la Renta dress. Despite being known for her petite hourglass frame, the outfit’s pleated design and weighted taffeta fabric created a clunky silhouette. It was covered in beaded floral appliques and looked nothing like a luxury designer gown.
3. Kaley Cuoco
She arrived in a bubblegum pink tulle dress that looked straight out of Katy Perry’s stage costume look. The Big Bang theory alum’s bizarre getup was asymmetrical with an A-line skirt in the front and a floor-length tulle train. Plastered across the front were an array of fuchsia, hot pink and baby pink flowers – many of which were doused in glitter or decked out in sequins. Sorry to say but she really did not dress for her age!
4. Laura Linney
Linney was a big disappointment as she graced the event in an unflattering black and white gown.
There were layers of ruffles around the neck and on the hips that distorted her otherwise slender physique. Each layer of ruffling was lined with black piping that matched a bizarre two-dimensional belt high up on Linney’s midsection. The only thing that worked for her was that messy updo and minimal diamond studs.
