Our PicksBest & Worst Dressed Stars of the Week, Lady Gaga to BeyoncéIsabel Wilkinson09.28.12Our PicksBest & Worst Dressed Stars of the Week, Lady Gaga to BeyoncéWho really shined at the Emmys? From beaded beauty Kerry Washington to a stunning-in-a bad-way Kim Kardashian, a look at this week’s fashion highs and lows.Isabel Wilkinson09.28.12 8:45 AM ETYou’d think, on a week with a major awards show, our Best Dressed list would be overflowing with talent. But we have to admit, it was slim pickings. It’s not that the Emmys served up bombs (though there were a few), it was more just blah—the red-carpet fashion that seemed pieced together by stylists, and lacking much spontaneity or verve. Still, it was a week where fashion communicated a strong message: Beyonce definitely wore a dress that made everyone think she was pregnant, Lady Gaga’s brave choice of a giant Comme des Garçons dress hailed her introduction of the “Body Revolution,” and Kim Kardashian wore a head-scratching combination of dress, shorts, and a straitjacket all in one. We give you the best and worst dressed awards of the week.

So when Kerry Washington showed up, we breathed a sigh of relief: here was someone, in a Vivienne Westwood sparkling cowl neck, who just looked great. Robyn Beck / Getty ImagesBest Dressed, Allison WilliamsIt felt like the Girls star was playing to her crowd with this Oscar de la Renta strapless dress at the Emmy Awards: a little bit youthful, a little bit WASPy, just like Marnie.

You can’t really wear, say, Versace or Rick Owens, without throwing everyone for a loop. Somehow, people subliminally want you to look like your Edwardian counterpart. But when Michelle Dockery dresses up, she does so in a way that feels exactly like what Lady Mary would wear if she were brought to life. Here she is in a silk duchess dress from British designer Erdem (extra points for supporting homegrown talent) at a pre-Emmy event in Beverly Hills. Frazer Harrison / Getty ImagesBest Dressed, Emmys Dark Horse: Leslie MannShe was by no means the focus of the red-carpet brouhaha at the Emmys: no, she just glided into the theater with Judd Apatow on her arm, looking fantastic in an orange beaded dress by Naeem Khan. Stephen Lovekin / Getty ImagesBest Dressed, All Grown Up: Ashley GreeneThe Twilight actress looked pretty in pink in a blush-colored dress from Donna Karan’s Spring 2013 collection at the New York premiere of Butter on Thursday night. Alberto E. Rodriguez / Getty ImagesBest Dressed, Despite the Color: Claire Danes’ Pregnancy Lemon DropAs soon as Claire Danes showed up on the red carpet, Twitter practically split in half. Some people loved the dress; some thought it looked like a giant potato sack cinched slightly at the waist. But she wore it well—and she’s pregnant!—so we thought it was a hit. Marc Piasecki / Getty ImagesBest Dressed, For Igniting a Conversation About Body Image: Lady GagaWe’ll admit: this isn’t the first thing we’d reach for in our closet (or ever, in a million years, think to buy) but we loved Lady Gaga’s Commes de Garçons dress for the message it sent. After weeks of media attention for gaining 25 pounds, Gaga wore this dirigible as a kind of “fuck you” to the world. A few days later, she launched a “Body Revolution:” admitting to being plagued by eating disorders since age 15, and pleading with fans to “triumph over insecurities.” Johnny Nunez / Getty ImagesBest Dressed, For Tricking the World Into Thinking You’re Pregnant: Beyoncé KnowlesPoor Beyoncé. This week, she put on a Roberto Cavalli animal-print dress, Nicholas Kirkwood heels, and thought she was just going out for a stroll. But little did she know, a small ripple around the stomach area set off a massive rumor that she was pregnant with Blue Ivy #2. Not so, it turns out! Ian Gavan / Getty ImagesYou Decide: Emma Watson’s Dress-Over-Pants MomentIt’s business on the bottom, party on top. When Emma Watson wore this single-piece thing that was pants on the bottom, dress on the top to a screening, we thought: what in the world? It turned out to be from Jil Sander’s much-praised first collection for Dior, but does that make it OK? Rob Kim / Getty ImagesYou Decide: Maggie Gylenhaal’s Split-Personality DressTo the New York premiere of her film Won’t Back Down, Maggie Gylenhaal went with this—The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of formalwear. It was simultaneously daytime and evening—but paired with flat, open-toed sandals—it seemed better suited for a walk in the park. Michael Buckner / Getty ImagesWorst Dressed, For Obvious Reasons: Olivia MunnEvery guy reading this will probably disagree. Valerie Macon / Getty ImagesWorst Dressed, For Not Matching Her Skivvies to Her Dress: Krysten RitterIt’s hard to tell from this photo, but Krysten Ritter is wearing a sheer pink skirt with black underwear underneath. Why black, you ask, since that is the color the world will obviously see? Great question! Jason Merritt / Getty ImagesWorst Dressed, ‘80s Prom Edition: Brittany SnowOn the red carpet for Pitch Perfect in LA, Brittany Snow looked like one of the popular mean girls from Pretty in Pink. JCFL / Splash News Worst Dressed, Identity Crisis: Kim KardashianIs this: a flamboyant young corporal, reporting for duty? A seamstress racing to finish her dress in time for the big night? A Tour de France biker sponsored by DASH? Why, no, it’s just Kim Kardashian out for a stroll around Miami Beach.
