Kate Mara In J. Mendel – 2014 Emmy Awards

KateMaraInJMendel2014EmmyAwards

Kate Mara had some fashion fun on the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘House of Cards’ star wore a stunning layered and pleated J. Mendel gown from the designer’s Fall 2014 collection.

Kate is never one to shy away from something different fashion-wise, and while that doesn’t always work for her, this gown is divine.

I love all the different length layers, the peeks of skin and of course the dramatic beaded floral accents on the décolletage. Such a dream of a dress.

Black and white Charlotte Olympia ‘Pomeline’ platforms and a black and white Thalé Blanc’s ‘Gisele Deux’ clutch are the perfect accessories, and a black mani and dark smokey eyes give it that edgy flare Kate does so well.

    Not to them stripper heels

    Ooh I love the dress and the hair!

    Gorgeous, but I completely agree with Christine about the shoes. Love everything else, though! The dress is really different and totally my cup of tea.

    The gown is overworked – the skirt is quite lovely and flowy with all the layers but the top could’ve been simpler/cleaner, those cutouts are a bit of mess. Not a fan of the hair or platforms.

      I agree. I love the bottom parts of the dress. Hate the top!

    This reminds me of the red j Mendel dress that Anna Kendrick’s wore earlier in the year to I belive the Oscars

    Love the gown on Kate, don’t like her accessories.

    It’s not an easy dress to wear but she pull it off nicely

    Does anyone realize that it is an edgy version of her J. Mendel white dress from last year? And a white version of Anna Kendrick’s Oscar dress? Step & REPEAT, seriously.

    Love this! Edgy, but somehow romantic and so true to Kate’s style.

    It’s such a convoluted mess. I couldn’t believe this is J Mendel. He usually makes such sleeker gowns, and I guess now I see why.

  11. Yeliz August 26, 2014 at 06:47 #

    I like it except for the hideous shoes.

  12. Peony August 26, 2014 at 07:40 #

    There’s a lot going on with this dress, but she carries it off with elegance.

    • Kate August 26, 2014 at 16:43 #

      +1. I totally agree. I like this look despite the shoes.

  13. Hermoine August 26, 2014 at 12:55 #

    I guess I am in the fashion corner because I hate everything about this look. The mess of a dress, the limp hairstyle, the dark eyes and the hideous shoes are all a huge no for me.

  14. dee August 26, 2014 at 13:36 #

    I like this look.

  15. marie August 26, 2014 at 17:48 #

    This is really cool and lovely h2t. I know platforms are utterly unpopular and I’m not fond of them too, but here, they work just right.
    Love this.

  16. elle August 26, 2014 at 17:57 #

    This is a slightly improved version of Anna Kendrick’s j Mendel dress from awards season but I still find it too worked over.

  17. mattison August 26, 2014 at 18:13 #

    I like it a lot, but Kate rarely does wrong in my eyes. I’d prefer the runway shoes, but it’s not enough to put me off the look entirely.

    FC, is she wearing last year shoes?
