For any red carpet event, there are always those who are named best dressed and those who are considered worst dressed. But what about a best dressed tribute to the memory of a recently-departed Hollywood legend?

Comedian Fred Armisen will win that category, should it be created. The “Portlandia” star arrived on the Emmys 2015 red carpet looking dapper in a tuxedo, but it is his unique accessory that is drawing the most attention.

Armisen is wearing a Freddy Krueger glove on his right hand and a tie striped like Krueger’s sweater, in what can only be assumed as a tribute to legendary director Wes Craven, who directed the Krueger-centric horror franchise “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and passed away from brain cancer last month.
