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 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.

Christina Hendricks In Marchesa – 2014 Emmy Awards

Christina Hendricks In Marchesa - 2014 Emmy Awards

Christina Hendricks made a traffic-stopping entrance at the 2014 Emmy Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

Echoing the colour of the red carpet, the ‘Mad Men’ actress slinked out a fiery crimson Marchesa Fall 2013 satin one-shoulder gown.

Opulence was this dress’s middle name with gold leaf filigree embroidery that likewise delivered a sense of romantic 18th century drama. It’s also what took the look to near costume-level proportions.

She kept the Midas moment alive and well with her metallic Lee Savage ‘Space’ clutch along with golden Neil Lane chandelier earrings and accompanying rows of bangles outfitting each wrist.

Factor in her own flame-red waves and ruby lip, and the effect was all a bit overly elaborate for my liking, and the excessive draping didn’t flatter her figure as well as I would have preferred.

Do you agree?

Julie Bowen took to the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards, hosted on Monday (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Modern Family’ actress wore a Peter Som Fall 2014 black halter gown with an exploded keyhole cutout and an abstractly blurred, blue and white recurring floral print.

The free-floating, breezy silhouette was a departure for Julie who normally selects far more structured looks. But it was nice to see her tap into her more bohemian side.

A Rauwolf black clutch and Jacob & Co. black gemstone pendant earrings rounded out her look, with her crimped bob adding a fun, flirty finish.

Debra Messing In Angel Sanchez – 2014 Emmy Awards

Debra Messing In Angel Sanchez - 2014 Emmy Awards

Debra Messing attended the 2014 Emmy Awards, held on Monday (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

One of the evening’s presenters, the actress was dressed as such in a statement design from the Angel Sanchez Spring 2014 collection that was just dramatic enough with its graphic sensibility and variations on the midnight blue hue.

The sheer slices that tracked throughout the gown created an abstract, pavestone-like design that I actually preferred from a distance. That said, up close is where the intricate detail of the colorations and geometry could be seen.

Echoing the dark palette in her smoky eye and grey manicure, she ushered in a bolt of lighter sparkle with a silver Judith Leiber clutch and Chopard jewels—a stunning sapphire-hued cocktail ring among them.

Of course, those red locks always liven up any look.
