The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards kicked off in Los Angeles on Sunday (local time) and as usual, there were dramatic highs and lows on the red carpet.

I've collaborated some of my favourite - and least favourite - looks from this year's celebrities. 

Ariel Winter

I don't know if you know this, but Ariel Winter is all grown up now. Oh wait, you probably did know it, because she seems to make a very strong point about it at every event possible - extreme amounts of skin are her new signature style, as a replacement for actual style I guess. 

What made you think this was a good idea Ariel? We get it, you've got a banging body and you want to show it off. But this is getting ridiculous, it's at least the 18th time we've seen you in the same overly sequined, overly thick dress. 

The high thigh cut, the choker, the sequins, the slicked back hair, the platform heel... I mean, there's so much going on it's hard to know where to begin. But please stop dressing like you're off to a ball in the Capitol in The Hunger Games

Neve Campbell

Remember how when that reprisal of The Great Gatsby came out in 2013 and we were all vibing that style of look? Well apparently so does Neve Campbell - only four years too late, but hey, we all make mistakes. 

One major mistake is this tasselled gown, which is so confused it doesn't even know what it's meant to be. The 1,450,000 tassels (approximately) are all fighting each other to be the tackiest, and they're all winning. And hey, let's chuck a strappy sandal and a backless feature on there! Just for kicks! Neve is known for her role in Scream, which is exactly what I'm doing at this dress. 

Thandie Newton

Thandie Newton has come to the Emmys as a full blown Disney Pricess, and I'm absolutely living for it. This is the dress that five-year-old you thought you would wear at every ball you went to when you grew up. There's pink, there's tulle, there's sequins; but it's also minimal and restrained. I don't know how she's done it but by George, she's done it. Thandie let the skirt do the talking, and it's saying 'Hey! I'm really pretty...fall in love with me'. 

Donald Glover

Remember last year when Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, looked like he was dragged through a hedge and stumbled his way onto the red carpet, making me say he looked like he was dragged through a hedge and stumbled his way onto the red carpet? Well me oh my yes boy he has recovered in SPADES. This purple suit is everything. It's formal but it's also fun, the contrast against the crisp white shirt and with the yellow pocket square he's absolutely KILLED the game. He could've been tempted to go for a whacky shoe, but he's kept it restrained. Donald Glover you have my heart. 

Alessandra Mastronardi

You know when your high school did that musical production of Grease, and everyone wore a weird collaboration of '50s dresses from the wardrobe department, and just chucked on whatever accessories they could find in their allocated five minute fitting? That was apparently the inspiration Allessandra took for this look, but like, it's worse because it's expensive. I assume. WTF is happening with that skirt? And if that wasn't enough, the gal was like; 'hey you know what's a fun addition to a diamond cuff? A pink leather belt. Gold metallic shoes'. Makes sense.
