It was all about honouring the greats of the silver screen last night at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards held in Downtown Los Angeles.
The show may have started late and had its up and downs, but there was plenty of couture eye candy to keep us occupied, with some of the best dressed celebrities we’ve seen in a long time!
The leading ladies sauntered down the red carpet in a host of dusty pastel and jewel tones making the best dressed an almost impossible feat. Strapless was the trend of the evening with January Jones in lacy Givenchy, Malin Akerman in Marchesa and Mad Men star Linda Cardellini in a deep berry Donna Karan Atelier dress anchoring the lime light towards them.
Not letting January blush on her own, Bridesmaids star Rose Byrne rocked her new blonde look in Calvin Klein whilst there was nothing funny about Modern Family’s Julie Bowen who looked stunning in a ruffled mermaid dress. The Zac Posen number rightfully deserved the lfty ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ it received.
Colour was a big theme of the night. In the light corner was Zooey Deschanel, who wowed in a soft blue J Mendel gown and Julianne Hough who sparkled in a sheer minty green beaded Jenny Peckham gown, which left little to the imagination. Their darker counterparts included Girls star Allison Williams, proving classic is often best in cobalt blue Ralph Lauren, and Sarah Hyland who looked all grown up in an emerald CH by Carolina Herrera dress.
It this wasn’t enough of a red carpet fashion extravaganza, Claire Danes in a barley there Armani Prive backless creation and Kerry Washington in floral Marchesa showed how embellished dresses can be demure and not over the top. But last but not least, the smouldering Sofia Vergara celebrated her curves in a stunning lace Vera Wang gown topped off with Lorraine Schwartz’s gems.
