A Case in Favor and Against Sarah Paulson’s Divisive Emmys Dress—What’s Your Verdict?

Gut reaction: Sarah Paulson‘s emerald-green Emmys dress—go!

The actress just spurred one of those conflicts that could split up a marriage…or, at least here at E! HQ, a newsroom. Was her sequined Prada gown couture garb or high-fashion garbage?The People v. O.J. Simpson star ultimately landed on our worst dressed list at the end of the night, but tensions lingered, side-eyes remained and fighting words were exchanged—so, now we need you to call it.

Before you share your verdict, let us think: WWMCD (what would Marcia Clark do)? Let’s hear both sides of the case.

Pro: The vibrant color of the dress and her skin tone were a perfect match. Her fair complexion laid the ideal, neutral foundation that her show-stopping gown needed.

Con: Although the color caught our attention, it exuded major mermaid vibes. With the metallic fringe, she looked like a walking, living bed of kelp.

Pro: Look up impeccable tailoring in the dictionary and find a photo of Sarah—it fit her to a T. The plunging neckline hit her exactly where it should have—keeping this look age-appropriate and elegant yet still with a little edge. Not many people know this (or even notice), but three-quarter sleeves are universally flattering, as they emphasize the daintiest part of the arm. It’s not conservative at all—it’s regal, bringing us back to the days of white gloves and old Hollywood glamour.
