We always look forward to the Emmys red carpet for spotting our favorite stars in the most stunning gowns and gems. Here are the most striking looks from this year’s awards ceremony.
Orange is the new Black star Laverne Cox absolutely wowed, in a white Marc Bouwer white gown and Fred Leighton jewels. Brooches were even fitted onto the train of her gown, for extra sparkle. Those dazzling studs are the perfect finish for her elegant up-do and smokey eye makeup.
Laverne wasn’t the only Litchfield inmate dressed to impress, though. Taylor Schilling wore this stunning Zuhair Murad art deco-inspired dress, with Forevermark jewels. Her diamond ear cuff adds the perfect amount of edge to this look.
Christina Hendricks’ yellow gold chandelier earrings and stacked bangles by Neil Lane added yet more classic luxury to her red Marchesa dress. Yellow gold with red hair has a particularly striking effect.
How is this for flawless maternity style? Nashville star Hayden Panettiere announced on the red carpet that she is expecting a baby girl, but that wasn’t the only thing that had us smiling. Her silver Lorena Sarbu dress was perfectly accented by timeless diamond drop earrings and a headband that reminded us of Lupita Ny’ongo at this year’s Oscars.
While it seems somewhat redundant to include Heidi Klum on a best-dressed list – she’s a supermodel, of course she looks stunning – we loved her for wearing emeralds on the red carpet. The green gems were an unexpected, yet delightful addition to a coral Zac Posen gown.
Host Seth Meyers’ wife, Alexi Ashe, wore one of our favorite pairs of earrings to this year’s Emmys. Sliced gems show their natural beauty in a distinctive yet sophisticated way. The simple hue of her J.Mendel dress allowed them to steal a little focus.
Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery was truly elegant in a multi-colored gown by Rosie Assoulin, but we were mostly enamoured with her Ana Khouri thin gold stacking bands, worn on each finger. She also had a yellow gold hairpiece to frame a sweeping bun, and pearl earrings from Love Gold Live.
Sofia Vergara is always a pleasure on the red carpet. Not only are her interviews hilarious, she’s also not afraid to rock some luxurious bling. A double finger emerald ring and platinum mesh tassel bracelet by Lorraine Schwartz complemented her white dress. We realize she wears essentially the same cut every time, but why not when she looks this incredible?
It wasn’t only actresses who were showing off some dazzling jewelry style. Access Hollywood‘s Shaun Robinson was interviewing on the red carpet in these chic vine earrings, by Dena Kemp.
Besides giggling onstage with Octavia Spencer – who was wearing some striking red earrings of her own – Allison Janney also won an Emmy last night, for her role in Mom. These wafer-thin drop earrings in amethyst quartz set off her plum velvet dress beautifully.
