LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The country shined on September 13 as Hollywood stars donned their best outfits for the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards. For the past two years, the awards shows have had to adapt to the new protocol due to Covid, but the Emmys looked much more normal than last year. The red carpet was back in full swing, whereas last year it was limited. The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles was packed with presenter Kenan Thompson.

Once again, Zendaya rocked the ceremony when she won the Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role as troubled teenager Rue Bennett in 'Euphoria'. Lee Jung-jae won the Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his starring role in the popular Netflix survival drama 'Squid Game.' But just as we got to see some beautifully dressed people, we also got to see some really confusing clothes. Let us take a look at some of the worst-dressed celebrities.

The famous 'Big Bang Theory' star was recently seen alongside Kevin Hart in 'The Man from Toronto'. Over the years, she has managed to keep her career to keep at a pedestal, but her outfit at the 2022 Emmys defined a new level of low in fashion. The over-used barbie pink color was rendered obsolete and the rose embellishments on the top seem like they belong to another dress.

After appearing in movies like 'Candy' and 'Don't Look Up', Lynskey is primarily known for the drama television series 'Yellowjackets'. Lynskey chose to wear seafoam green which has hardly looked good on anyone. Her outfit is further ruined by the gigantic tiers of tulle ruffles. The dress could have looked better as a tone-down gown.

Laverne Cox turned heads with 'Orange Is the New Black' and 'Inventing Anna', but she failed to do so with her outfit at the Emmys this year. While it's bold of her to wear something so unique, it failed to drop under the category of good. The overall hypnotizing look with the add-on of cloth on each side of the dress was unsettling.

From 'Perks of Being a Wallflower' to 'Ozark', Garner has had ten strong years of spot-on performances but her Emmys outfit seemed vague as she wore what seems to be a brown velvet material with shabby embroidery on the upper half of the dress. The cutout at the naval part seems necessary.

The 'Bird Box' and 'Grey's Anatomy' star wore an outfit that was almost beautiful but was ruined by the upper half. Wearing a soothing color, Paulson wore a daring and indescribable thing to cover her torso which threw the entire outfit off its scent.

Nicole Byer missed the mark big time with her Emmys outfit. The color scheme seemed placid, her footwear did not single out, and the idea of wearing pants did not look the same upon visualizing. She is known for 'Wipeout' and 'Nailed It!'

Scott is a well-known face in Hollywood with some critically acclaimed movies and shows under his name, such as 'Parks and Recreation,' 'Step Brothers,' and 'Severance.' While there is nothing majorly wrong with his outfit, it just seems like he is going to a wedding and not an award show. The shirt is outdated and the footwear is questionable as well.

Teigen is expecting her third child with John Legend and she did not hesitate in flaunting her baby bump. The good news broke out and their fans are happy for them But the dress that the model wore was slightly disappointing. She sported a long-sleeve patchwork gown with sequins. The patchwork seemed sloppy.

Kerry Washington

Washington is known for 'Scandal,' the 'Fantastic Four' franchise, and will be seen in the upcoming movie 'The School for Good and Evil'. Her outfit for the 2022 Emmys was highly disappointing as she wore something that had slight finesse and no splash of color.

Brown is famously known for her role in 'Yellowjackets', 'Scream', and is getting ready for the untitled 'Scream' sequel as well. Her dress was in no way, shape, or form, interesting or suitable. Brown has previously donned good outfits but this leathery waist-cut dress ended up looking cheap.
