An eclectic mix of stars were out in force for the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards held on Saturday (September 8) in LA.
Sarah Drew: I love the regal elegance of this SAFiYAA Fall 2017 cape gown, with the petal-pink hue and dimensional floral embroidery offering a layer of delicate femininity to the look. Her Tyler Ellis clutch was perfectly matched.
RuPaul: I don’t know anyone else who could make a double-breasted, bubblegum-pink suit look this good. His was from the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC collection.
Heidi Klum: Also donning a look in the pink family of colours, the supermodel host was lovely in a coral Elie Saab Resort 2018 embellished gown, styled with contrasting Lorraine Schwartz jewels. This was not a typical ‘Heidi’ look, and for that, I think we are all standing in applause.
Padma Lakshmi: Bringing va-va-voom drama to the red carpet, Padma offered a seductive-meet-sophisticated moment in this crimson Ester Abner Fall 2019 gown.
Tiffani Thiessen: I realize that the fall season is around the corner, but this oxblood SemSem Fall 2017 velveteen gown still felt a bit heavy for early September in LA.
Mishel Prada: As pink continued to be a popular hue, this blush-nude Blumarine gown was a delicate design edge up by the black belt, red lip, and Ileana Makri jewels.
Melissa Barrera: Despite its sheer factor, I really like the direction of this flowing, draped Antonio Grimaldi Couture number — even if the caped shoulder and train seemed to flow a tad too long in their proportions.
John Legend: Classic as ever, the singer suited up in an Ermenegildo Zegna Couture tux.
Chrissy Teigen: Chrissy played it safe (by her standards) and matched her hubby in an equally classic Greta Constantine belted gown paired with a Tyler Ellis clutch.
Carrie Brownstein: With Fred Armisen at her side, Carrie impressed in this simple yet effective Sachin & Babi gown and Tyler Ellis clutch. I like how the netted overlay provided a subtle allure and dimensionality to the dress.
Samira Wiley: Who knew such a simple column gown could be so striking. The reverse ombre effect of this midnight-purple Monique Lhuillier design was understatedly beautiful — and Samira’s radiant smile, Anabela Chan jewels, and shiny trophy also amped up the look.
