It’s that time of the year again – one of the biggest nights in television, the Emmy Awards. As you may know, my favorite thing about award shows is the red carpet and seeing what my favorite actors and actresses in television look like all glammed up.
LET’S START WITH MY TOP 5 (in no particular order):
Emilia Clarke – I’m pretty biased here because Emilia will ALWAYS be part of my “best dressed on the red carpet” lists. It’s the way she carries herself on the red carpet. The “Outstanding Supporting Actress” nominee went for a blush colored strapless dress by Atelier Versace. With her hair up in a bun, she accentuated her neckline and kept it minimum with jewelry. She’s so poised and elegant every time, even if she’s one of the biggest dorks in the world (I say that out of love). .
Kristen Bell – Yes, she’s back on our television screens! As I sit here contemplating why Veronica Mars was never nominated for an Emmy, Kristen Bell in her Zuhair Murad dress is definitely a good distraction. The dress entailed a floral design perfect for the end of summer & beginning of fall! She rocked the low plunging neckline, but my absolute favorite part of the dress was the billowing skirt!
Tori Kelly – I know fans of the YouTube start will agree that Tori has come so far! You may know her for her music, but she stepped on the red carpet looking like a classic Hollywood actress.Along with her soft curls, she wore a black mermaid-style gown by Paule Ka. There wasn’t much detail on the dress, but she accessorized well with a silver clutch and jewelry (Norman Silverman Diamonds).
Laverne Cox – She keeps making my best dressed lists! Her maroon dress she wore at this year’s SAG Awards is still my favorite look of hers, but this gold number by Naeem Kahn comes very close. The dress hugs her figure perfectly. She said she was excited of the possibility she may see Beyonce, but I definitely think she slayed the red carpet just like Beyonce would.
Sophie Turner – I still stand by my statement that she is a fashion icon of her generation. Out of this year’s award show red carpets, I noticed she likes to keep it neutral. Just like at the 2016 SAG Awards, she opted for a black dress but this time by Valentino. The spiked gold necklace accompanying this lacy dress gave it more edge ! Does anyone else think her look emulated Jennifer Lawrence? Maybe it’s the blonde hair, but either way, she rocked it!
Kerry Washington – The Scandal star may be pregnant, but she did not let that stop her from walking (read WORKING) the red carpet. She looked fierce in a black Brandon Maxwell dress cut at the sides, accenting her baby bump.
Olivia Culpo – Why was former Miss USA Olivia Culpo at the Emmys? I’ll never know, but she looked beautiful AND fierce in this Zac Posen dress.
Priyanka Chopra – I love red and this dress by Jason Wu was the best looking red dress on the red carpet.
Sarah Paulson – Honestly, I was having J. Lo flashbacks with this embelisshed, emerald green gown.But this Prada gown was far from it and Sarah pulled it off!
Millie Bobby Brown – I haven’t seen Stranger Things, but I do know that this 12-year old in Valentino is capturing the hearts of many. So I’m calling it right now: this girl is going to be rocking many red carpets in the future and will most likely be a style icon.
BEST DRESSED MEN:
Yeah, the men have it easy, but not all of them can rock a good suit. Here’s a few that looked very dapper tonight.
From L to R: Tom Cullen, Rami Malek, Trevor Jackson
and of course my Game of Thrones babes Kit Harington & Pedro Pascal.
And that concludes my best dressed of the 2016 Emmys (photos courtesy of Zimbio)! Who made your list?
