Awards Season kicked off on Monday with the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. I was glued to my TV screen for a few hours watching the live coverage from the red carpet. The abundance of style and glamour was enough to keep me hooked – not to mention the amazing host of designers who dressed the stars. There were so many gorgeous gowns on the red carpet that it was a hard task deciding on my top three favorites. Here are my favorites and the reasons why I love them!
Number One – Julie Bowen (Modern Family) in Monique Lhuillier.
I love the striking yellowy-lime colour of this fabulous Monquie Lhuillier bodycon dress. The gown fits Julie perfectly and I love how she kept her hair, make up and accessories simple to allow the gown to shine fully.
Number Two – Allison Williams in Oscar de la Renta.
I love the on-trend peplum detail of this gown and I think that the colour and style of the gown suits Allison and her complexion perfectly. Her simple and fresh make up and hair compliment the dress and I just love her jewellery.
Number Three – Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) in Dolce & Gabbana.
Elisabeth came up against some criticism for this Dolce & Gabbana number, but I personally love it on her. I love that she went for a pattern, as this wasn’t a trend widely seen on this year’s Emmys red carpet. The colour, pattern, shape and length all compliment her complexion fabulously and I love her quirky haircut and simple make up, as its such a change from the way I’m used to seeing her on screen in Mad Men. She took a risk and I think that it paid off for her!
