While I didn't actually get to watch the award show or the red carpet, I'm still really excited about the looks from the Emmys this weekend (mostly because I watch too much TV so I love all the people wearing the looks). Because I'm so excited, I'm just going to focus on the gowns that worked rather than even think about those that didn't.
First off, Cobie Smulders in J. Mendel. How I Met Your Mother is definitely up there in my top 5 favorite shows so I know that Cobie looks phenomenal almost constantly. But this gown/hair/makeup/accessorizing combo is simply drop dead gorgeous.
January Jones in Givenchy. I always love Givenchy, the gowns are typically ethereal and incredibly detailed, always making the person wearing them look like some kind of princess from the future. But this dress has a really nice simplicity and traditional shape to it that compliment the details of the lace quite well.
Kerry Washington in Marchesa. I mean talk about princesses. Kerry Washington looks like what I can only hope my fairy godmother would look like were I lucky enough to have one.
Kaley Cuoco in Vera Wang. I love Kaley Cuoco. I want Kaley Cuoco to be my best friend and then I want her to let me borrow this dress.
Rose Byrne in Calvin Klein Collection. I absolutely love Calvin Klein for the red carpet. There's something about the simplicity of this style of gown that makes it so much more interesting than nearly everything else I saw from the Emmys.
Laura Dem in Naeem Kan. I know I literally just said I love the simplicity of a Calvin Klein gown, but Naeem Kan just does the intricately detailed, beaded gown so well.
Kiernan Shipka in Delpozo. Little Kiernan, always age appropriate as well as overwhelmingly beautiful. I love the floral theme, especially in the metallic 3D flowers on the skirt.
Side note: It wasn't until I'd run through a compilation of red carpet photos looking for my favorites that I realized I nearly entirely picked blush toned gowns. Apparently I'm really into blush right now.
