The top trends of the night and what we can expect on red carpets this season.
For people in television, the Emmys are all about awards, but for us, it’s a chance to see the stars either shining or missing the mark on the red carpet. This year there were more hits than misses. Thank goodness: is there anything worse than seeing a celebrity flop on the red carpet? All that money spent on stylists only to end up being charged for gown fail by the ever-present Fashion Police.
For the most part, the women were dripping with class. As were the men; how can you go wrong in a tuxedo, really?
Anna Faris proved that blondes can look stunning in yellow. (It’s normally a no-no).
Sarah Silverman stuck to a simple black dress that flattered her curves. She told reporters that she paid only $60 for the sexy number! Who says you have to wear couture?
Tina Fey also chose a simple dress, but in a striking cobalt blue. Not only did she steal the show on the red carpet but in the audience as well. We love a beautiful woman with a wicked sense of humour.
Menswear is huge for women right now and two celebs clearly got the memo. Jane Lynch stunned in a sleek, clean-cut black Badgley Mischka tuxedo with gold necklace and striped clutch.
However, Melissa Leo took this minimalist trend over the edge. Way over the edge and straight into a lion-tamer’s ring. The tails on the coat and the busy printed pants made her outfit look as if she belonged in a circus.
Another undeniable miss was two of the women from Girls. For a show that is such a success, it’s a shame their red carpet looks weren’t. Lena Dunham’s Prada dress was plain awful and what was with Zosia Marnet’s leather boobs? Sorry girls, maybe next year…
Her red Vera Wang gown was a showstopper in itself! Sophia gets an A+ for this one.
So what trends will continue on to the next star-studded event? Clean lines, solid colours, and curve-hugging fabrics are sure to make the cut. See you at the Oscars! – Melina Morry
