Emmy Awards 2016: Red Carpet Glamour

The Emmy Awards are the Oscars of America’s TV industry. But with so many gripping  and addictive dramas on television at the moment, the competition is really tough. Anyone could have won!

Therefore, all the actors and actresses dressed like they were winners as they didn’t want to go on stage to accept an award looking anything less than their best. There were sequins, there were metallic colours and there were gorgeous deep reds and blues – they were full on party dresses. With the Christmas party season just two months away, it’s a great time to start thinking about party dresses and the TV stars are the perfect inspiration.

Let’s have a closer look:

Emilia Clarke

Game of Thrones won Best Drama for the second year running and now has the world-record for the most amount of Emmy wins ever. Emilia looks ready for the podium in a strapless beige maxi dress that gives her a lovely hourglass shape. It’s not complicated but it’s very pretty.

Olivia Culpo

The beauty paegant veteran has a wardrobe of beautiful dresses and she picked a fabulous one for the Emmy’s. Her strapless dress is super flattering as it has a tight bodice top that slims her waist before she enhances her hips with a prom style skirt. The barely there sandals complete the look and she even matches her nail polish to the dress. It’s all about the detail!

Sofia Vergara

The Modern Family actress is feminine and fabulous and she always dresses to show that off. She wears dresses that show off her gym-honed body and it’s hardly surprising as she’s worked hard on that bod. Her one shoulder maxi dress shows it off perfectly and the cream colour gets her noticed.

Emily Ratajowski

The blurred lines model is the third celeb so far wearing a strapless maxi dress – is there a trend going on here? I love the rich blue colour of her dress as it looks luxurious and it contrasts perfectly with her dark complexion. What do you think?

Priyanka Chopra

The Quantico actress had one of the most attention-grabbing outfits of the night in a red maxi dress. The loose, floaty material meant she could twirl it around. That would be so much fun on the dancefloor! There are rumours that she got close to Taylor Swift’s ex Tom Hiddleston at the Emmy’s after-party – watch this space! They’d certainly make a beautiful couple.

Claire Danes

The Homeland actress was a golden goddess on the red carpet! The gold dress enhances the golden colour of her skin and she looks radiant. Gold is always a big one during Awards season.

America Ferrera

The Ugly Betty actress certainly wasn’t ugly in a sequinned navy dress with red stripes. She’s got the beaming smile that you only get from feeling confident with what you’re wearing. Sequin dresses always get me in the mood to party!

Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten also wore a sequin dress, but hers also had a plunging V-neck to show off her chest. She knows what she likes about her body and so she dresses to show that off. Notice that she’s following the rule of covering her legs if she’s showing off her cleavage.

Heidi Klum

The America’s Got Talent host showed off her supermodel credentials in a white maxi dress. It’s a bold outfit with all the slits, but she pulls it off as she’s holding her head high, daring people to challenge her. She’s a great example of what you can get away with if you wear it with attitude!

Joanne Froggatt

Downton Abbey actress Joanne Froggatt showed that the Brits are just as good as the Americans at dressing for award ceremonies. She’s also gone strapless in a strapless black maxi dress. She looks chic and sophisticated and you can tell that she’s going to do well in America now that Downton is over. Not only is she a top actress, but she really dresses the part.

Which party dress do you like most?
