Television’s biggest night returns as the 65th annual Emmy Awards took place on Sunday, Sept 22. Emmy Awards, which is a ceremony that recognizes the talents in the television industry, has brought in our favorite TV stars all-together in a night full of glamour. Even though some of the results might have had TV fans toss away their remote controls out of anger, it’s the fashion that really got us excited! We have handpicked our Top 10 best dressed of the night; check out who made it to our list.
Ever since the Mad Men star ditched her long brunette for a shorter and blonde hairdo, Elisabeth Moss possessed another kind of persona and it certainly reflected in her style. Ms. Moss nailed it in the black and white Andrew Gn dress. She had accessorized the dress with vintage Neil Lane Jewelry and completed the look with red lips for a hint of color.
Zooey Deschanel finally ditched her “adorkable” style and opted for something more mature and sexy. The silver-blue J. Mendel gown is certainly a departure from what she had always worn on the red carpet. The thigh-high slit on the dress gave Zooey more sex appeal which perfectly showcased her matching silver platform pumps. She accessorized the look with an Edie Parker clutch and a massive Chanel gemstone ring, perfectly placed on her right hand.
That’s right! Kit Harington is the only guy from the Emmys that made into our best dressed list. Kit looked dapper in the three-piece getup where he matched it with a black skinny tie and David Yurman cufflinks. His long hair was slicked back and it sort of complimented the bad boy persona that he seemed to carry out.
Linda Cardellini who is nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her work on Mad Men is certainly outstanding on the red carpet. She looks stunning in the fuchsia silk gown by Donna Karan Atelier. Not everyone can pull off the busy rose shaped and crepe details of the dress but she managed to. The side-swept waves and triangle earrings from Irene Neuwirth are just the right amount of perfect as it let the gown take the spotlight.
Lena Dunham, please take note. This is how you show-off your curves at the red carpet! Christina Hendricks’ famously hourglass shape is perfectly accentuated in the black dress by Christian Siriano. She finished the look with a sparkling Edie Parker clutch. The 30’s inspired hair together with the emerald earrings and red lips complemented the whole look and Christina has never looked better!
In the mix of embellishment and sparkling dresses on the red carpet, Girls’ Allison Williams stands out in a simple deep blue gown by Ralph Lauren which debuted on the New York Fashion Week runway just weeks ago. Adding just a few of Fred Leighton jewelry together with her long wavy hair and nude lips, Allison looks effortlessly chic.
The winner of Lead Actress in a Drama Series is dazzling in a nude Armani Prive gown. What makes the whole look more interesting is that she paired the sexy plunging neckline dress with a shorter hair, which she then revealed to Lena Dunham that it’s a faux bob. Faux or not, we love the bob and it certainly gave her some edge. Maybe it’s time for a new haircut?
Oh we wanted you to win Kerry Washington! Although our favorite Scandal star did not take home the Emmy award, she certainly made it onto our best dressed list. The cream and white gown embellished with flower appliqués and hints of gold is from the Marchesa Spring 2014 collection. Kerry kept the accessories simple with just a touch of Fred Leighton Jewelry and Edie Parker clutch. Her hair was also styled into a simple wave. And the result, she looks like a princess from a fairytale world.
Our favorite teen style icon wowed us again in a beautiful dress by Delponzo. The 13 year old actress is the 4th Mad Men actress who made it into our list! Kiernan always looked pulled-together and managed to blow us away every time she steps out during an event. The colorful floral detail on the dress plus her cute ponytail is very age appropriate. It is refreshing to see Kiernan dressing her age especially when most of the teenagers out there are trying really hard to look mature.
Our Emmy’s best dressed go to none other than Rachel Byrne! We at Culture Vulture applaud those who take fashion risk. While this pale pink gown from Calvin Klein Collection is simple, the plain design is what makes it risky to grace at the red carpet. It is modern and has a lot of sex appeal to it. The two piece dress shows off the actress’ midriff, and the silver Jimmy Choo clutch perfectly matched the color of her dress. She styled her noticeably lighter hair into polished waves and finished the look with dark pink lips.
