Emmys Fashion Report

Red dominated the red carpet at the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards as it did the Academy Awards last year and most Indian weddings. Tell me of a bride who doesn't wear red, and I'll be at her doorstep tomorrow with a bouquet of black roses! OK digressing.....although many starlets opted to chili out in red and blend in with the red carpet, none of those dresses um stood out. Take Lea Michele for instance, for all her posing and preening - her red Marchesa dress was no stand out number. This is what it looks like, nice? kinda ordinary in my opinion.

So I wasn't loving the reds, but I found plenty of eye candy and fashion inspiration from these starlets. Here they are: *Drum Roll*!!


Sarah Hyland collaborated with Christian Siriano on this one-shouldered Grecian dress with the bejeweled belt. Such fashion savvy in one so young is to be admired!




















Evan Rachel Wood channeled old Hollywood glamour in this Elie Saab gown. When in doubt, opt for the classic look.


Cobie Smulders stood out simply for wearing aquamarine. Don't recall seeing anyone else donning this shade. Why aren't we seeing more fresh colours like this on the red carpet?

















Kaley Cuoco's was the only ballerina dress I saw at the Emmys. Her Romona Keveza tea-length dress stood out amongst a sea of slinky floor length gowns. I kinda like that she accessorised her black outfit with a red clutch and shoes. Nice!

















I love this bright canary yellow vintage Helena Barbieri dress worn by Jennifer Westfeldt. Very feminine and summery.


















Christina Hendricks amped up the glam factor in this shimmery Johana Johansson gown.



















Martha Plimpton certainly got it right with this sequined dress the colour of berries!


Some loved it, some didn't. Either way Gwyneth Paltrow's two piece Pucci outfit certainly made an impression and got people talking. We'll be hearing more of this outfit in years to come I'm sure.
















 
Julie Bowen wore Oscar de la Renta. I like the deep V-cut and metallic shimmer of her gown.
Amber Riley has been on my style radar for sometime now. This isn't her first outing on the red carpet, and she hasn't failed to dazzle each time. I like the colour and the jeweled detailing on the shoulders.
                                                    
Cat Deeley was radiant in a gold and tulle Monique Lhuillier gown.
Claire Danes was glamorous and edgy in this sparkly geometric print Oscar de la Renta dress in blue and black hues.

Love the color red. It's one of my favourite colors. But i have to agree that that dress of Lea is indeed... BORING!

Love the Sarah Hyland and Julie Bowen's though :D
