Emmys Worst Dressed List: The 2014 Award Show Saw Some Pretty Disappointing Looks

Don't get us wrong, there were tons of amazing dresses at the 2014 Emmy Awards -- but there were also quite a few doozies. From the overly frouffy gowns (we're looking at you Lena Dunham and Sarah Paulson), to the outfits that looked like prom dresses gone wrong (ahem, Zooey Deschanel), there were a few ensembles we wish we could unsee.

Check out the worst dressed stars of the night and let us know if you agree.

Lena Dunham in Giambattista Valli

This looks like a tutu gone wrong -- or like something an angsty teenager might wear to piss off her parents. Either way, it has no place on the red carpet.

Laura Prepon in Gustavo Cadile


Between the long train, the emerald and teal color palette and the peplum style top, this is just too much.

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting in Monique Lhuillier

The "Big Bang Theory" star is wearing a whole lot of tulle. It feels more like a prom dress when combined with a red and pink color palette.

Mayim Bialik in Oliver Tolentino


Bialik's dress belongs in the Renaissance era. The actress is getting lost in the voluminous skirt and those long sleeves. We also think the cobalt color is too harsh head-to-toe. We wish she had gone for a more modern silhouette.

Christina Hendricks in Marchesa

Hendricks usually hits it out of the park, but this satin one-shoulder gown looks an item purchased off the rack at her local mall. The gold embellishment isn't helping matters.

Sarah Paulson in Armani

Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta


Does this not look like a bad bridesmaid dress? Deschanel's quirky personality calls for something much more dynamic.

Katherine Heigl

And this looks like something the mother of the bride would wear. Heigl is such a babe, but this gown is a tad mature for her.

Mindy Kaling in Kenzo

The knotted halter neckline is so elegant on Kaling, but the silver trim cheapens the gown. This ensemble would have been far more successful had she stuck to a solid red dress.
