Red Carpet Trend at the 2015 Emmys? Trying to Stay Cool

Emmys 2015 Heat Wave: Olivia Culpo Nearly Passes Out, and More Suffering, Sweating Stars.

It was hot, 100-plus degrees hot, on some of the processional stops on the Emmys red carpet. Yes, we counted over a dozen bobs on the carpet, and while some of them were faux—á la Kerry Washington and Claire Danes—the chin-length effect is clearly the hairstyle of the moment.

It might be 100 degrees on the red carpet, but nothing will stop E! red carpet hosts Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic from chatting with/harassing celebrities. To watch the two hours of coverage on E! — as grueling to observe as it must have been to sweat through — was to come away not with any single trend or theme, no runaway winner of the red-carpet lottery, but one simple message: It’s brutal out here. Still, Amy Schumer (a multiple nominee for “Inside Amy Schumer”) had to pat Seacrest’s face to stop the beads of sweat rolling down his eyebrows. Henson rocked a sassy, sleek asymmetrical version, Sarah Hyland and Taylor Schilling went with tousled ‘dos while Jaimie Alexander tried out a slicked back style. Seacrest’s tuxedo, from his own Ryan Seacrest Distinction line, was a notable exception.) “I have to tell you who I’m wearing!” Laverne Cox, the “Orange Is the New Black” actress, reminded Mr.

It was a pretty teal gown by Calvin Klein Collection, propitiously air-conditioned by zippy cutouts in the back. “Let’s just say it: We’re both really hot,” said the no-nonsense Allison Janney, who would go on to win her seventh Emmy for best supporting actress in a comedy, for “Mom.” “It’s just a cruel joke to make us get dressed up and walk down like this. Tatiana Maslany looked sexy as hell in her white pantsuit with very low-cut front, but even with all that exposed skin she was still willing to alter her entire ensemble to get a little relief. “By the end of the show I will have rolled these pants all the way up… I wish they were cut off shorts!” she said. And when Giuliana told Jane Krakowski that she couldn’t complain about the heat because of her strapless dress, the 30 Rock alum was ready to show off the girls just to get some cold air. She posted a photo of herself getting pushed by an EMT and sitting across from a stretcher. “@GiulianaRancic @helloross @mrbradgoreski its ok I know u would have caught me,” she added.

The voluminous princess gowns that the stars flock to for award shows like the Oscars were less in evidence here, and though many were elaborately and no doubt expensively beaded, sequined or spangled, there were plenty of streamlined styles, including several in basic black. Henson of “Empire.” She tells Seacrest that she was originally hesitant to take the part of Cookie because she was so polarizing — but eventually came to love the character. “Cookie represents the American dream,” she says. “She came from nothing and she built an empire.” Rancic seems really confused when Jaimie Alexander talks about her long-sleeved dress covering her residual tattoos.

Heidi Klum’s canary-yellow Atelier Versace gown — an asymmetrical outlier that left her looking half-draped in the poached pelt of Big Bird — was the exception that proved the rule. Blindspot actress Jaimie Alexander kept a fan handy, Homeland’s Mandy Patinkin took off his jacket, Mario Lopez perspired through his shirt, and Game of Thrones hunk Alfie Allen looked like he was in need of a handkerchief to wipe the sweat away. “It’s terrible. Amy Poehler (nominated for “Parks and Rec”) confirms to Seacrest it was great to hang out with those “weird and wonderful” people when she filmed “Wet Hot American Summer” for Netflix. She also teases a bit with Andy Samberg that may or may not happen tonight, but is mostly looking forward to getting drunk and having no responsibilities since she’s not the host.

Anthony Anderson (nominated for “Black-ish”) says he didn’t bring his mom to the Emmys because she would make it all about her, but then his 15-year-old son joins him during the interview and totally steals the show by being charmingly adorable. Seacrest asks Sofia Vergara (“Modern Family”) about this picture of Joe Manganiello, who says he saw the cover “Sofia in Love” and was curious — naturally, because he’s her fiance. Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story: Freak Show”) has no patience for Rancic reminding her that she’s been nominated multiple times… because that means she’s lost multiple times. Kerry Washington, a presenter and fashion standout, wore an embroidered metallic-lace dress by Marc Jacobs that had been on the New York Fashion Week runway about 72 hours prior. (What’s more, she added, through the lace “I feel the breeze in all the right places.”) The most coveted red-carpet get is a custom gown, which is what Taraji P. Kerry Washington (“Scandal”) and Seacrest have a sort of awkward but also endearing interview where she compliments him on his tux (of the Ryan Seacrest label, of course) and he tries to get her to spoil “Scandal.”

It may have been the evening’s best look, its elegant micropleated lace toughened up by bike-chain straps. (Oddly, they were not the only ones of their kind: Claire Danes’s sequin-stripe Prada dress, too, was chained to her frame.) As for the men, they mostly looked smart and innocuous in their tuxes, as they tend to at these events. (A good rule of thumb for men’s red-carpet dressing: Nothing ventured, everything gained.) They had some competition in the tux department from a few suited ladies, including Jill Soloway of “Transparent,” Lisa Kudrow of “The Comeback,” Carrie Brownstein of “Portlandia” (in Stella McCartney) and Tatiana Maslany of “Orphan Black” (in a gorgeous ivory tux by the lesser-known French designer Bouchra Jarrar).
