The most talented actresses of the small screen were celebrated at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. The hottest trend on the red carpet? Bright glittering angels in platinum and white.
As a curvy girl myself, I love seeing gowns that sculpt and highlight great curves in an unusual way. Kate Mara's J. Mendel gown had multi-directional shirring along with shaped, semi-sheer layers to reveal the leg in a soft way. Also loved the chunky beading on the top. Sofia Vergara's hourglass figure is always epic on the red carpet. Roberto Cavalli's gown not only hugged her body, but the silver embroidered lines traced each sexy shape even more. Danielle Brooks of Orange is the New Black wore a Nathaniel Paul gown with a great circle lace bodice. It contrasted beautifully against her skin. The asymmetrical skirt with high leg slit was incredibly flattering.
I loved these shimmering dresses. Amy Poehler was stunning in THEIA's silver beaded gown. Hayden Pannetiere made every Mom I know jealous in a starburst embroidered gown by Lorena Sarbu. Taylor Schilling's halter gown had beautiful beaded lines by Zuhair Murad.
Lucy Liu's gown from Zac Posen pulled shirring details in several directions to frame her body. Julianna Hough's strapless dress was a contemporary take on the retro big bow dress by DSquared. Dascha Polanco was in full diva mode in a ballgown by Johanna Johnson.
