We love award season here, it gives us a chance to see all the styles that will be hot in the up-coming season and see the inspiration that designers find for their famous clients. With the Emmy’s having happened we thought we would give you a re-cap of some of our favorite looks seen on the stars, many of which had some vintage inspirations behind them!
The Emmy’s is a great award show because the stars wear dresses that have glamour but are not so far out of an ordinary person’s scope. When we watch the Oscar red carpet we expect to see high drama and high fashion, dresses us mere mortals will never get a change to wear; but when we have shows like the Emmy’s and the SAG awards, the dresses are more of the fashion trends we can see influencing dresses we see in department stores.
There were so many stars that we loved from Sunday’s red carpet it was hard to pick who it was we wanted to showcase on the blog. We took some of the top contenders from InStyle.com and some of our own and will present them to you! We chose to focus on stars that wore dresses that wore dresses with a vintage inspiration and followed the latest trends.
First up is Drew Barrymore wearing Givenchy. Drew was onstage to present an award with the cast of the TV series Charlie’s Angels. Drew was stunning in her flapper-esk dress. Her hair was pulled in a ponytail, rocking a look we blogged about last week, and minimal jewelry, she allowed the dress to speak for itself. The drama in this look came from the mini length, that was then covered up by the floor length fringe showing off Drew’s rocking legs! We love the cream tone, which is HOT for the season, it pops against Drew’s dark red hair. The detailing of the lace around the the borders of the dress are a great touch, as lace is another trend we will see a lot of this season.
Kate Winslet looked fabulous in this red Eli Saab dress. The way this dress is cut is so flattering, and the neckline of the dress is reminiscent of old Hollywood fashion. Red dresses were seen all over the red carpet and will be a trend for the holiday season. Kate accessorized her dress with a Cartier diamond bracelet and earrings. When wearing a dress that is a solid color and on the brighter end of the spectrum keeping the accessories simple and classic adds for a more uniform look; had Kate gone with something more blinged out it would have detracted from the simple beauty of the red dress.
Another of our favorites was Julie Bowen wearing this sequence dress by Oscar de la Renta with jewelry by Neil Lane. Sequence dresses were another trend we saw on the red carpet that we loved and have already seen transported into everyday looks for the fall/winter collections. This dress was a favorite for a few reasons; we loved the deep neckline on the dress that is sexy and classy, we also liked that this dress did sequence the right way! Sequence can be a hard trend to wear, especially for a dress, but Oscar de la Renta created a dress that uses the sequence to create a pattern and print on an otherwise plain black dress. Other stars that rocked sequenced dresses were Claire Danes, Christina Hendrix and Cat Deeley.
There were so many other styles and dresses that we loved from the red carpet, but these were the top picks to show what trends you will see for the fall/winter collection of dresses. If you had a favorite we didn’t talk about leave us a comment on this post about who your favorite was and why.
