'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington on the art of male grooming

The New York Times recently profiled Diana Schmidtke, a celebrity groomer who specializes in getting male stars ready for the red carpet.

Ms. Schmidtke has coiffed hair, plucked eyebrows, and applied makeup — just a little concealer! — for the likes of George Clooney, Seth MacFarlane, and Mad Men star Jon Hamm, for whom, she told the Times, “it’s always about making him not look too Don Draper.”

Despite having Schmidtke at his disposal for Sunday night’s Emmys, Hamm’s hiatus beard made him appear scruffier than usual. Another actor who looked artfully disheveled thanks to a groomer? Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, who told EW why he needed a professional primper to help him get ready.


Emmys Fashion: Battle of the tuxedos -- POLL

Even to those of us who appreciate the difference between a shawl collar and a peaked lapel, on the red carpet most of the male stars become a blur of black and white amid the parade of gowns. Unless they’ve got the cojones to wear a lace jacket, that is.

So let’s take a moment to look back at the guy style — both good and not-so-good — at last night’s Emmys.

Who was worst dressed at the Emmys? -- POLL

At last night’s Emmys, there were a few looks that were memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Amanda Peet’s goth dress got a unanimous thumbs down, Connie Britton looked like a walking tapestry, Julianne Hough’s underwear was on display for all to see, and Lena Dunham came a long way, but not far enough. And then there was Paula Abdul.

Emmys: Toast the nominees with these TV-inspired cocktails

Nominees like Julie Bowen, Tony Goldwyn, and Anna Chlumsky started warming up for Sunday at Entertainment Weekly‘s pre-Emmy bash in L.A. last night.

“We have a routine,” Gail Simmons told EW of her Emmy night plans with Top Chef co-stars Padma Lakshmi and Tom Colocchio, insisting that the trio will keep their spirits up even if they don’t get the trophy for Best Reality-Competition Program. “We party whether we win or lose!”

Speaking of spirits, we’ve rounded up five cocktails to help you kick off your Emmy celebration.

Click on to learn how to mix up libations inspired by Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Girls, Scandal, and Downton Abbey.


The most revealing Emmy dress of all time is... POLL


From plunging necklines to waist-high slits and see-through gowns, celebrities have found all sorts of ways to walk the Emmys red carpet partially nude. (Though side butt is fairly common, to date there have been no documented cases of exposed butt cleavage at the ceremony, though both Eva Longoria and Felicity Huffman almost went there in 2007.)

If you do it right, showing a little — or a lot — of skin at the Emmys can raise your profile in Hollywood, but take it too far and you could land on an all-time worst dressed list that will come back to haunt you every September for the rest of your life.

We’ve rounded up the 20 most revealing Emmy dresses in the history of the TV awards ceremony, but there are five that stand out from the pack. Who wins the award for most revealing Emmy dress of all time? Click on for the full fashion rundown and cast your vote. READ FULL STORY

Emmy winner Dan Bucatinsky on his 'Scandal' costumes and his naked fight scene

At last night’s Creative Arts Emmys, Dan Bucatinsky won an Emmy for his guest role as James Novak in Scandal. The show’s costume design department can take part of the credit for that win; Bucatinsky said his Scandal wardrobe played a part in helping him get into character.

“I love what I get to wear on that show. [Costume designer Lyn Paolo] has an unbelievable eye and has managed to create an aspirational quality with great clothes,” Bucatinsky — who looked dapper in the Dogtooth Jacquard tuxedo from Alexander McQueen — told EW on the red carpet. “I think we’re the best dressed actors on television.” (EW agrees — the ABC series made our list of the 20 most stylish TV shows of all-time.)

Who was best dressed at the Creative Arts Emmys? -- POLL

Red carpet season officially kicks off this Sunday at the Primetime Emmys, but last night’s Creative Arts Emmys was a dress rehearsal of sorts for stars like Heidi Klum, Cat Deeley, and Carrie Preston.

How did they do? It was all there in black and white (and a little red).

Natalie Dormer on her 'Game of Thrones' costumes: 'My breasts don't naturally sit in that position.'

The medieval costumes on Game of Thrones are as epic as the story lines. And while visions of the bloody red wedding episode are still fresh in viewers’ heads, each characters’ intricate gowns and steel suits of armor are just as memorable. So it’s no surprise that the show racked up 16 Emmy nominations in categories like Outstanding Costumes, Outstanding Hairstyling, Outstanding Make-Up, Outstanding Prosthetic Make-up, and Outstanding Art Direction, which will be handed out at tonight’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

EW caught up with Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell, to find out what it’s like working with costume designer Michele Clapton and head hairstylist Kevin Alexander.

“There’s so much infrastructure in Margaery’s costumes because my breasts don’t naturally sit in that position,” said Dormer. “They’re incredibly made.” READ FULL STORY

The Emmy for best costume design should go to... POLL

From Lady Mary’s embroidered dresses to Jon Snow’s fur-trimmed capes and Snow White’s fairytale gowns, this year’s crop of Emmy-nominated wardrobe designs are a telling example of Emmy history — the Academy loves period and fantasy costumes.

The 2013 Emmy nominees in the category of Outstanding Costumes for a Series are Boardwalk Empire, The Borgias, Once Upon a Time, Downton Abbey, and Game of Thrones, all shows that are set in the past, or, in the case of Once Upon a Time, in another world. In fact, this year’s nominees is the same group that went head-to-head for the costume Emmy last year. (GoT costume designer Michelle Clapton took home the award in 2012.)

Why are costumes from shows set in modern times often left out of the running?

“[It’s] really hard for people to understand how intricate, precise and detailed [contemporary designs] can be because we wear them every day,” Tom Broecker — the longtime costume designer for Saturday Night Live who also worked wardrobe magic on season one of House of Cards — told EW at the opening of the FIDM Museum & Galleries’ Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibit in July. “Contemporary costumes are seen as more mundane because they lack the majesty of period clothes.”

Which costume designer should win the prize for Outstanding Costumes for a Series at the Creative Arts Emmys this Sunday? Cast your vote in the poll below.
