10 Best Dressed of the Emmys Red Carpet

To kick off Awards Season I have picked my favorite looks from the 2013 Emmys Red Carpet.  As always, the fashions of the red carpet did not disappoint and in fact it was a full on glam fest!  After compiling my list I realized that there are some serious trends that define my 10 best: nudes/neutrals, sheer, laser cuts, open backs, and cut outs.  None of this comes as a surprise, because I love these trends in ready-to-wear so why wouldn’t I love them as red carpet looks, but it is wonderful seeing the translation.  So how does your list stack up next to mine?  Who were your favorites from the red carpet?

CFDA Fashion Awards

I know this is a little late, but I couldn’t resist putting together a best dressed list from this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards.  The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards are the fashion equivalent to the Oscar’s, except more fabulous and adventurous.  Designers pull out all the stops and rock the red carpet with the “it” model of the moment on their arm.  Epic duos are debuted and fashion history is made.  This year the CFDA Awards were as glamorous as ever with incredible highs like Erin Wasson in Alexander Wang and Karolina Kurkova redefining the red carpet dress code in shorts designed by Michael Kors.  Sadly, there were some lows, most notably (and upsetting) Rachel Roy, who I normally love, but she just missed the mark this year in a white unflattering jumpsuit.  Between the highs and lows was glitz and glamour at its finest.  The boys of Proenza Schouler came away with the coveted womenswear designer of the year award and the always inspiring Vera Wang, who looked gorgeous, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

So what did you think of the red carpet?  Who were your favs?  Which looks have you pinned and can’t get enough of and which looks do you wish would just disappear?

Oscars 2013 Best Dressed

The magical night that we have all been waiting for has finally arrived!  Dresses are snatched fresh off the runways of fashion weeks worldwide and placed onto Hollywood’s ultimate runway, the Academy Awards Red Carpet.  The real excitement for me is the red carpet, obviously I care about the big awards and I always root for my favorite movies, but the red carpet is really where it’s at.  Similar to the awards, I have my fashion favorites and I root for their red carpet success and my must sees this year did not disappoint. In the spirit of true glitz and glamour sheer, sequins, sparkle, tulle, and texture dominated the carpet this year!  I hope you enjoy my favorites from this years Oscars Red Carpet and feel inspired to embrace some of this glamour into your every day life.

Emmy’s Best Dressed

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love awards season!  There is just something so magical about the glitz and glamour of the evening making it is easy to forget the hours/days of preparation the lovely starts endure just to make it on a best dressed list–Garden of Glam’s obviously being the most coveted.  The 2012 Emmy’s did not disappoint with very clear (and somewhat contradicting) trends emerging.  From mermaid to structure to neutral to neon this year’s red carpet delivered!

Julie Bowen simply glowed in this neon Monique Lhullier show stopper. She looked fresh and fabulous!

Jessica Pare looked fantastic in Jason Wu’s straightforward and classic silhouette. And as you know, black and white is the perfect combination.

Morena Baccarin is stunning in this demur Basil Soda pewter gown. The plunging neckline is perfectly complemented by the structural pleats.

Padma Lakshmi oozes confidence in this ultra feminine Monique Lhullier gown. I also commend her on the bold choice of color.

Kat Dennings looks incredible in this red J. Mendel gown that perfectly highlights her voluptuous figure.

Allison Williams dominates her first Emmy appearance in this structural peplum Oscar de la Renta stunner!

Favorite look of the night! January Jones is awe inspiring with her bold sartorial choices! She is looks modern and feminine in this edgy Zac Posen gown.
