The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards aired tonight on ABC and while hit shows like Homeland, Game Change, and Modern Family picked up the big awards of the night, on the red carpet is where we really judge the actors.
Some of the trends we saw on the red carpet included bold, bright colors like purple, orange, and red. We also saw bold prints, lace, and beautiful draping. So who made our best dressed list? We’ll start off with our favorite gown of the evening, a beautiful nude and red gown by Moniuqe Lhuillier on Once Upon A Time actress Ginnifer Goodwin. Kelly Osbourne has really stepped up in the gown department and we loved this purple gown by Zac Posen. Tina Fey is also one the really stepped up her game this year, after a few misses she hit the bullseye in this beautiful deep purple Vivienne Westwood gown. Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss wowed in a bold foral printed gown by Dolce & Gabbana, while VEEP star Anna Chlumsky looked very chic in a black and lace Christian Siriano gown.
Also in Christian Siriano was Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, who wore a strapless, belted silver gown paired with bold lips did a modern take on the ‘old hollywood’ style. Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi looked a vision in bright orange Monique Lhuillier, the color choice was great against her darker skin. Nashville star Hayden Panettiere wore a stunning blue and gold draped Marchesa gown that looked fabulous both in the front and in the back. Going custom, New Girl start and Emmy nominee Zooey Deschanel wore a custom gown by Reem Acra, the color is said to match her eyes. We also fell in love with Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka’s (who is quite a stylish young women) custom Zac Posen dress. Normally for child-pre-teen girls, stylists will just get a dress off the runway and have the length cut down. In this case Posen actually custom made this dress not only to fit Kiernan but also to be age appropriate.
