A Few Words on Jaimie Alexander’s Otherworldly Armani Prive


Kerry Washington looked downright flawless. Sofia Vergara, smokin’ hot. Claire Danes? She almost changed my mind about Radiant Orchid. But Jaimie Alexander, an actress whose name I didn’t know before she materialized on my TV screen Sunday night, made it official: I’m suddenly into sequins.

Alexander, who stars on the new NBC show Blindspot, co-presented the Emmy awards for Guest Actor and Guest Actress in a Drama Series to Reg E. Cathey and Margo Martindale wearing a long-sleeved Armani Prive gown with a crew neck, a simple sheath cut, and glittering swaths of crimson and aqua. It may not have been the most widely appreciated dress of the night, but I can’t remember ever seeing another quite like it, and under the bright lights of the Microsoft Theater it sparkled like the galaxy. I’d crawl onto a stage for that.
