Happy Emmy Awards night. I wish I could say the red carpet fashion bored me because everyone looked so good, but I can't. The stars took chances, wore bold looks and still all looked gorgeous. Of course, being partial to embellishment design, I am only giving my shout-outs to the best embroidered gowns of the evening.
It's pretty much a given that anyone who wears Zuhair Murad wins the red carpet game. The silhouettes are sculpted to make you look like an Amazon Goddess. The beading is always engineered to enhance that. Game of Throne's Lena Headey wore a dramatic oxblood gown that looked fierce like Queen Cersei of Hollywood 2015. Bam! Meanwhile, Joanna Newsom wore a softer sweet Delpozo dress that took the art of embroidery literally. Her bodice actually looked like a luxe needlepoint frame with embroidery being worked on. The pretty peach pink fit her sweet smile.
Based on my Twitter feed, Kerry Washington won the red carpet with her stunning platinum dress pulled straight from Marc Jacob's spring 2016 runway. It looks like sculpted, jeweled chainmail (though I hope it was more comfortable than that.) Jamie Alexander wore a gorgeous Armani Prive gown that looked like a waterfall of shimmering beads and sequins. I love how the colors look like they are spilling into each other along the curves of her body. Of course, Sofia Vergara always knows how to knock out the crowd with a gown that emphasizes her hourglass shape. The gold St. John dress was tailored perfectly to her body with waves of jeweled beading that echoed her curves.
The Emmy Awards red carpet fashion was the best show of the night! Ok, now who actually won the trophies?
