My Favorite Looks from the Emmys 2012

Monday, September 24, 2012

Another awards show, another red carpet. It really is the perfect excuse for our favorite entertainers to get dressed up and show us their style. This year at the Emmys, the stars turned out in the most color to walk a red carpet in...ever!!, and despite the sweltering heat, everyone was able to hold it together and strut down the red carpet in the most extravagant I have seen the Emmys in a very long time. Could it be because so many of our present day television stars are from the world of film and have gotten major practice doing the same awards show runway work on the Oscars red carpet, or has the style quotient for Awards season come to a fashion apex and is culminating in the higher echelons of what it really means to "dress up", or is the Emmys red carpet benefiting heavily because the show is taking place during Fashion Month and the access to hot & fresh-off-the-runway-looks is easier? Perhaps its a broad mix of all of these things, with style being the most important ingredient of all.
It is refreshing to see color and prints on the red carpet, as well as the variety of texture (sequins, lace, and tulle), and shimmer and shine. Here is a look at my favorite looks from this year's show, (in no particular order):

Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier

Julie Bowen in Monique Lhuillier

Zooey Deschanel in Reem Acra

Ariel Winter in Katherine Kidd and shoes by Brian Atwood

Claire Danes in Lanvin with husband (and best dressed man of the night) Hugh Dancy in Burberry

Edie Falco in Stella McCartney

Hayden Panetierre in Marchesa

Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Vera Wang

January Jones in Zac Posen

Kat Dennings in J. Mendel

Kerry Washington in Vivienne Westwood

Morena Baccarin in Basil Soda

Juliana Marguilies in Giambattista Valli Couture
Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen

It will be interesting to see how, as the Awards season comes to a virtual close now, red carpet dressing will plateau to the next level when the season gears up into high gear again in the next few months. Will the fashion sense stay as high as it is now or just reach further into the stratosphere? I can't wait to see!
