Amy Schumer's 2015 Emmys Dress Should Be One Of These Glam But Sophisticated Runway Picks
She's been funny since at least 2008, but 2015 is, without a doubt, Amy Schumer's year. The comedian, who was just nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series for her role in Inside Amy Schumer, has been a household name since hosting the MTV Movie Awards last Spring. And with Trainwreck coming out this Friday (I'm already camped out in front of the theater as we speak) it's nearly impossible to navigate even the remotest corners of the interwebs without seeing Schumer quaffing wine from a paper bag in ubiquitous promotional banners on every site, from IMDB to Perez. (Yes, my research runs deep.)
When she's not busy starring in major summer blockbusters or getting Ellen DeGeneres one step closer to a Depends endorsement deal with her side-splitting, off-the-cuff humor, she's also got an impressive roster of on-point, feminist-leaning sketches, tweets and Instagram posts that even the burliest of men can't ignore.
But, all of her massive accomplishments aside, this is still Hollywood and Schumer better ba-ring it to the Emmy's Red Carpet. After all, if she doesn't make it onto every Best-Dressed List (and at least one "Worst-Dressed" list) was she really even nominated at all?
So in anticipation of the career-making "Who are you wearing?" moments on the red carpet, I think Schumer should rock a look from a designer like Donatella Versace, Stella McCartney, or DVF - fellow feminists - to the awards in September.
And yes, if she goes with any of these I will 100% be changing my twitter profile to say "Style Adviser to Emmy-Nominated Star @AmySchumer." (Actually, Amy, if you could just win, that would really solidify me as a style influencer. No presh though).
This look from Versace will be a perfect nod to her naughty dress from the "Milk Milk Lemonade" video, and Schumer seems to like highlighting her legs on the red carpet, which this dress will definitely lend itself to.
2. Stella McCartney
Again, it's all about a little leg, and the asymmetrical hemline is cheeky and uber-theatrical. Bonus points for wearing it with the pearl necklace that is definitely McCartney's F-U to pearl necklaces. Bonus-bonus points for peal-necklace double-entendres possibilities during red carpet interviews.
3. Diane von Furstenberg
Business up front, party on the sides.
4. Tom Ford
OK, so he's not a female designer, but he is definitely guilty of designing strong and sexy silhouettes for women who know that being powerful and feminine are not mutually exclusive. This casual silver number will match the award she's sure to receive. (Just saying.)
Whatever you choose, Amy, just be sure to take lots of selfies!
