Red Carpet Fashion Awards


Allison Williams added some major interest to the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘Girls’ star wore a dramatic Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture gown that featured several points of interest.

I can’t say enough about how much I love this look. It is such a dramatic gown while remaining understated–no crazy colors or designs, but still so visually intriguing.

To accompany the gown, she wore Brian Atwood ‘Tribeca’ sandals and subtle Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.

A simple updo, and classic makeup complete the look.

And can I just give a shout-out to Allison’s impeccable posture? She looks regal!

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?

The actress may have been on pins and needles about her chances of winning an Emmy award for her performance in “Breaking Bad,” but her effortless style make it look like she didn’t have a care in the world. Her summery dress, from Jenny Packham Resort 2015, consisted of a long blue skirt with thigh high slit and a single-shoulder white print top.

Accessories include the Edie Parker ‘Lara’ clutch and gold ankle-strap sandals. Anna’s long flowing locks and drop earrings from Irene Neuwirth make this look sexier than it was on the runway.

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 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?
