The music crowd got their chance, and now it’s TVs night of nights. That’s right, the Emmys have come around again, with the big winners all of the dramatic variety…as was the fashion. Summer brights, full silhouettes, and dramatic straight from the runway looks dominated the Emmys red carpet, and we’ll let you know who was best dressed!
Indie darling turned prime time’s most adorkable leading lady, Zooey Deschanel looked every part the Hollywood glamour girl in a fuchsia Oscar de la Renta column gown. Playing against her favourite look of knee length A line skirts with black tights, she looked both event appropriate and youthful. Simple make up and her trademark bangs completed her look.
Also opting for brights was Mad Men actress Teyonah Parris in a sobert hued gown by Christian Siriano. The silhouette was super glamorous, but the colours were completely playful. A high bun and winged eyeliner completed her look.
Rounding out the brights on the carpet was Private Practice actress Kate Walsh. Opting for a radiant chartreuse peplum gown by Stephanie Rolland, she looked fashion forward, but age appropriate. Hollywood waves and a bold lip completed her look.
FRESH FROM THE RUNWAY
After any fashion week, a look is bound to find itself on the red carpet, and the Emmys were no exception. Fashionista and TV presenter Louise Roe looked amazing in a Monique Lhuillier printed gown, complete with exaggerated peplum. The print and colouring was perfect on her, and the simple make up and slicked back bun perfectly complemented the look.
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland took a fun and flirty approach to her red carpet look in a two piece set from Christian Siriano. The crop was perfectly on trend and the full princess skirt was event appropriate. Her messy bun and strong make up completed the look, and also started a few trends!
Sarah Paulson wore a look straight of the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week from Armani Priveé. The drama from the netting served as a perfect moment on the red carpet, and the simple hair and make up made sure the dress took centre stage.
Veteran actress, and current American Horror Story actress, Angela Bassett looked regal in her white Elisabetta Franchi gown. Taking a detour from the runway presentation, she accessorised the Grecian gown with a thick waist band, cinching her waist to give her an enviable hourglass silhouette. Loose curls and natural make up completed her look.
Orange is the New Black star Taylor Schilling showed that shimmer is the new black in a sparkling ivory column gown by Thakoon. The shape was completely flattering, and showed that out of prison fatigues, Taylor is every part of the television goddess. A sleek side bun and smoky eye completed the look.
Everyones favourite funny girl, Kristen Wiig showed that she can be as glam as she is talented in a sleek Vera Wang gown. The low cut v neck and side slit showed a sexier side to the star and with minimal styling, looked completely effortless and stylish.
LADIES IN RED
While the classic white and black gowns walked the red carpet predictably, several crimson hued gowns walked the carpet. Homeland star Claire Danes looked stunning in a lace cut out gown by Givenchy. A variation of Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress, the belt across the cut outs added a high fashion edge to the otherwise classic shape. A messy bun and bold red lip completed her look.
Mad Men actress January Jones stood out in a bold silhouette by Prabal Gurung. The textured fabrication made it a pint of difference, and the raised hem showed off her caged heels. Loose bangs, a low bun, and a red lip completed her look.
While her Creative Emmys dress got more jeers than cheers, Heidi Klum redeemed herself in a sleek and sophisticated Zac Posen design. “For the Primetime Emmys, [Project Runway co-judge] Zac and I found a look that was a little more sophisticated, with a pop of colour”, said Heidi of the look. She completed her styling with loose waves and a nude lip.
What’s a red carpet without a little sparkle? Stylish tweener, Kiernan Shipka looked stunning in Antonio Beradi. The midi dress with a thick embroidered mid section was both event and age appropriate. Sleek hair and a smoky eye completed the look.
Allison Williams of Girls continued her streak of winning on the red carpet in a show stopping Giambattista Valli Couture 5 princess gown. The thick black bow against the cream was dramatic on the carpet, and the pop of chartreuse kept the look fashion forward and youthful.
Gwen Stefani backed up her powerful VMA look with another great look, this time courtesy of Versace. The relaxed fit spoke to Gwen’s sense of style, and the fabrication offered a little glam for the event. Forgoing her signature bold lip, she settled on a natural pink lip, sleek straight hair, and a smoky eye to complete her look.
One of the world’s most enviable couples, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves easily took out best dressed couple, with her in a stunning illusion lace gown by Zuhair Murad (reminiscent of Beyoncé’s Grammy dress) and he in a three piece navy Dolce&Gabbana suit. Both looks conveyed their personal style, but shone together.
Newlyweds Adam Levine and Bahati Prinsloo took a less rock’n’roll approach than their VMA look for the Emmys. Both clad in Prada, her sheer overlaid dress was understated glamour, and his tuxedo sans tie treaded the lines between evening wear and his personal style.
Winner on the night, Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren Parsekian took a very Hollywood glam approach to their look. Aaron opted for a tradtitional tuxedo, while Lauren looked stunning in a white Lorena Sarbu gown and a slightly textured ponytail.
