This week we’re talking Emmy’s Fashion. The 2017 Primetime Emmy awards took place on Sunday, Sept. 17, and the stars came out wearing their best looks for the big occasion. Everyone watching got a taste of a variety of fabulous designers, from Calvin Klein to Ralph Lauren and Zac Posen. The following are some of my personal favorites from the star-studded event.
Reese Witherspoon took a very different approach to the “usual” Emmys fashion. Instead of opting for a gown, she chose a short, sapphire Stella McCartney tuxedo dress, which I think that her famous character Elle Woods from “Legally Blonde” would have loved to wear to one of her classes at Harvard. Her soft make-up combined with a red lip pulled the look together completely.
Viola Davis had one of my favorite looks of the night, wearing an orange Zac Posen gown and Stuart Weitzman shoes. The dress looked amazing on her and really highlighted her figure and the color choice could not have been better. I also love how she opted for an updo so that the entire dress could be seen.
Millie Bobby Brown was simply adorable in her strapless Calvin Klein dress. She looked like a ballerina from her tutu shaped dress down to her pulled back hairstyle, and even though she is young, she was able to stand on the carpet and shine just as brightly as any other celebrity out there.
Emmy Rossum hit my soft spot, which is simplicity that is also elegant. Rossum’s Zac Posen gown was exactly that, black from head to toe with subtle sequin detailing was all that she needed to be considered one of the best dressed celebs at the Emmys. Not to mention that her choice of emerald jewelry, especially the emerald ring, gave the look a little something extra, which I loved.
Gabrielle Union’s gown was another black gown that I wish I could wear myself. Though I am not a fan of shawls or caplets, the dress underneath is genuinely perfect. The black-on-black detailing of the Zuhair Murad gown was both meticulous and well placed, and her gown was yet another one of my top favorite looks.
Shailene Woodley glowed in a moss green velvet Ralph Lauren gown, with a gorgeous, strappy open back and a plunging neckline. Her hair also looked great in a low ponytail and she went very subtle on the jewelry. While some people might say that her dress was plain or not as extravagant as some of the other dresses, I think that is what I love most about it. This dress is the one that I would be most likely to wear on a red carpet, which is why it is my favorite look of the night.
I would also be remiss if I did not mention the men who rocked the red carpet. Although men’s fashion on red carpets is pretty much a bunch of tuxedos, the following men really stole the show and looked fantastic: Milo Ventimiglia wearing Ralph Lauren Purple Label looked like the picture of class in this black tux, Donald Glover (in purple!) Gucci really stepped out of the box and chose a color that is not normally seen on red carpets, Liev and Kai Schreiber in matching Isaia were the cutest father/son combination walking the carpet, Justin Hartley in Valentino looked great in his navy blue tuxedo accessorized with a Montblanc watch, and of course designer Zac Posen himself in Brooks Brothers Made to Measure took a break from designing to enjoy the evening in a sleek black tux.
