Gwen Stefani In Atelier Versace – 2014 Emmy Awards

Gwen Stefani In Atelier Versace - 2014 Emmy Awards

Also back on the red carpet after Sunday’s 2014 MTV VMAs, Gwen Stefani glittered up the scene at the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

One of the presenters, she sparkled in a slinky silver Atelier Versace Fall 2014 two-piece number, embellished with peekaboo metal hardware.

Modified from the runway into a long skirt, perhaps in an effort to be made more appropriate for the Emmys, the ensemble certainly brought Gwen’s signature brand of rock-star edge to the proceedings.

She styled the look with spit-straight locks and a rose-coloured lip, smartly opting for a more subdued shade when bright red would have been far too brash here.

Many of you loved her hot-pink pantsuit last night. How does this flashy piece fare?

Kiernan Shipka In Antonio Berardi – 2014 Emmy Awards

Kiernan Shipka In Antonio Berardi - 2014 Emmy Awards

Kiernan Shipka joined the star-studded set at the 2014 Emmy Awards, hosted at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

The trendsetting young ‘Mad Men’ actress opted for an Antonio Berardi Resort 2015 trapeze-style, tea-length dress with intricately embellished, beaded sash detailing.

Endearingly polished and pretty, she complemented the sweet-chic dress with Kwiat jewels, a loosely swept-back updo and a light pink lip gloss.

Silver Jimmy Choo ‘Jane’ sandals were a safer approach than the lookbook’s colourful footwear but worked beautifully on this occasion. Did you miss the bold shoe?

Julia Roberts In Elie Saab Couture – 2014 Emmy Awards

Julia Roberts In Elie Saab Couture - 2014 Emmy Awards

Julia Roberts made a glorious showing at the 2014 Emmy Awards, hosted at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

Nominated for ‘The Normal Heart,’ the sweetheart actress continued her chic streak in a rather charming yet completely stunning Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture scintillating, dark-blue cocktail frock featuring oversized beading, a riff on a peplum waist, and the perfect plunge neckline.

While many may have expected her to have a mannish moment or go for a simple gown, she took everyone by surprise in this statement mini number.

Sophisticatedly paired with Christian Louboutin ‘Vendome’ peep-toe pumps and Irene Neuwirth jewels, the dress with all its youthful, fun exuberance only reflects Julia’s million-dollar smile.

It certainly put a smile on my face.

Lena Dunham In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2014 Emmy Awards

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Lena Dunham made a grand entrance at the 2014 Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

Forgive my sensory overload, but where to even begin?

The ‘Girls’ star gave a whole new meaning to the word ‘bold’ in her daring Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture finale number that featured a baby-pink blouse with a Peter Pan collar paired with a ballgown skirt… and what a skirt it was.

The voluminous piece was an extravaganza of layered tulle tiers, creating a pink-to-red ombre effect that ran reverse of the runway colours, making it perhaps even more reminiscent of fluffy cotton-candy.

Fred Leighton jewels may have been lost in the sea of froth and frou-frou, but Lena’s new beauty look carved out its own statement. Her white-platinum bob is an edgy new direction for her, but she could have done with less makeup as her dark kohl-outlined eye and red lip were too heavy here.

This is an Emmys ensemble that will be remembered for years to come—for better or worse. What do you make of it?

Laverne Cox In Marc Bouwer – 2014 Emmy Awards

Laverne Cox In Marc Bouwer - 2014 Emmy Awards

After attending the 2014 MTV VMAs on Sunday night, Laverne Cox was back on the red carpet for the 2014 Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

Embodying a completely different style, the ‘Orange is the New Black’ actress went from high-octane shine at the VMAs to sleek Grecian goddess in this white, custom Marc Bouwer plunge gown.

The sleek draping and the diaphanous train that trailed behind her were beautiful, and the effect was one of ultimate sophistication.

Her styling was on point, too, reflecting the more refined classicism of the gown with Stuart Weitzman heels, a few sparkling Fred Leighton jewels and a romantic, rolled updo.

Amy Poehler In Theia – 2014 Emmy Awards

Amy Poehler In Theia - 2014 Emmy Awards
Amy Poehler shone brightly at the 2014 Emmy Awards, hosted at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

The ‘Parks and Recreation’ funny girl and best actress nominee pulled no punches with her Theia Fall 2014 gown.

She has 10 Emmy noms to her name, but has never won. That said, she’s definitely out to shine tonight in this silver sequined dazzler that would certainly be rather appropriate for an acceptance speech.

A careful, well-edited collection of Lorraine Schwartz jewels complemented rather than competed with her dress, which was much like jewelry in its own right. Breezily styled waves and nude makeup tones likewise were the right move here.

I’m already applauding her for elevating her more subdued style to this glittery standard.
