The Primetime Emmy Awards 2012: Best Dressed and Top Trends
Almost as an ode to the waning summer, sunny hues made a splash at the 2012 Emmy Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. last night when breath-taking gowns took to the red carpet. Here is a look at my favourite looks and key trends from arguably one of the most well-dressed events of 2012.
Claire Danes walked away with top honours for Homeland and glowed in a draped silk Lanvin dress in canary yellow that looked divine against her tumbling golden locks. The fit was just right for the pregnant actress.
Julie Bowen looked glamorous in a draped, strapless column gown from Monique Lhuillier in bright yellow. She accessorized with a Swarovski gold clutch.
Leslie Mann wowed in a beautiful Naeem Khan Spring 2013 creation which has a striking marigold billowing skirt and a nude beaded top. She added contrasting turquoise jewels.
Padma Lakshmi stunned in a tangerine draped Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 strapless trumpet gown. She let her dress shine by adding simple jewels and minimal makeup.
Ginnifer Goodwin looked super chic in a Monique Lhuillier nude gown with orange appliques and on-trend high-low-hem. She added orange Christian Louboutin’s Bis Un Bout pumps to complete the look.
Here is a look at some other lovely coloured gowns that took to the red carpet.
Allison Williams donned a glamorous emerald-green Oscar de la Renta gown and Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara looked statuesque in a sexy teal halter necked Zuhair Murad gown. Hayden Panettiere got the first dibs into Marchesa’s India inspired Spring 2013 collection. She wore a sari-inspired gold column gown with draped blue tulle overlay.
In a sea of colour, there were some black, nude and white gowns that also stood out. Prominent among those was January Jones’ dramatic show-stopping Zac Posen gown with architectural details styled with a striking Cartier bracelet. Emilia Clarke, wore a chic white Chanel dress with purple embroidery and Jessica Pare looked like a million bucks in a one-shouldered Jason Wu white gown.
The Top Trends that came out of the Emmys include strapless gowns in striking colours predominantly citrusy hues of yellow and orange and barely there, natural make-up (as seen at NYFW Spring Summer 2013 runways) and glossy blown out locks.
