Primetime Emmy Awards: The Trends – Citrus Hues, A Sea Of Blue, and Shades Of Grey

trend1 Primetime Emmy Awards: The Trends   Citrus Hues, A Sea Of Blue, and Shades Of Grey %tagI am a lover of the red carpet, I love seeing my favourite actresses, singers, and TV personalities looking all glamorous in designer couture gowns, and last night I was blown away by the standard of the Primetime Emmy Awards.

As well as spotting which designers they are wearing I also like to see the trends taking form, last award season there was a lot of open backs, and this Emmy Awards was all about a hint of colour, the various shades of blue and grey, with a little oxblood and floral mixed in for good measure.

I have already blogged some of my best dressed looks from January Jones’ statement Zac Posen gown to  Ginnifer Goodwin in Monique Lhuillier, to the shimmering beauty that was Lucy Liu in Versace, and the bombshell that is Sofia Vegara.

But with so many good looks I thought it best to do a trend post – so here are some more of my favourites.

Citrus Hues:

Normally there is a lot of black on award ceremony red carpet, that isn’t to say there wasn’t any last night – did you see January Jones, but what I was pleased about was all the citrus hues – ranging from vibrant oranges to canary yellow – maybe it was the California heat but the red carpet was sizzling.

Leading the orange pack was definitely Monique Lhuiller she dressed Ginnifer Goodwin in an orange floral embroidered beauty and Padma Lakshmi looked radiant in her strapless trumpet gown – the colour was perfection on her.

Then there was Leslie Mann in Naeem Khan, I love the contrast of the marigold coloured skirt with the embroidered ivory halter-neck bodice – seriously beautiful.

Finishing up the orange hues is Lindsay Pulsipher in Bibhu Mohapatra – everything about the colour to the Grecian styling of her hairstyle this is a gorgeous look.

Yellow was another key trend, which I was a little on the fence with as I am not sure about yellow on the red carpet, but I loved Julianne Moore’s canary yellow Christian Dior Couture gown – the full silk skirt looks stunning on her.

A pregnant and Emmy award-winning Claire Danes went for Lanvin, she said “it’s very bump friendly”, which is very true the draping was flattering and the colour really complemented her skin-tone.

But my favourite of the yellow gowns had to be ‘New Girl’ star Hannah Simone in a sunny yellow custom one-shoulder Emilio Pucci gown. I love the shade, I love the sexy thigh-high split, and the Lorraine Schwartz leaf earrings. One thing I can’t cope with though is her visible tan marks!!!

A Sea of Blue:

The blue tones ranged from aqua to midnight blue and each really stood out on the red carpet. Leading the pack were the darker shades, it is hard to choose my favourite but the two that really stood out were Sarah Paulson in Reem Acra, the embroidery was exquisite, and I adored the Louis Vuitton gown that British actress Michelle Dockery wore, it was simple but elegant.

I also added in Hayden Panettiere into the mix, I have to be honest I kind of like the dress the gold-embroidered Marchesa gown with blue tulle overlay works well, but I worry that it is a little too mature for her.

The aqua and pale blue hues were a little more playful and sexy. From the neck down I adored Julianne Hough’s Georges Hobeika Couture, I just don’t understand what she did with her hair. Heidi Klum showed off her sexy side in in Alexandre Vauthier - showing Angelina Jolie how to work a thigh-high slit.

But the gown that caught my attention had to be Zooey Deschanel’s princess gown designed by Reem Acra, it was whimsical, quirky and cute and she looked amazing, but why in all the pictures is she not smiling???

Shades Of Grey:

There is always something nice about grey and silver tones on the red carpet, always makes me think of Old-Hollywood glamour, and there were some elegant gowns last night.

Emily VanCamp from my new favourite show Revenge looked gorgeous in a delicate pleated J. Mendel gown, I adore the dove grey shade and the sheer bodice. But what makes this outfit has to be her bow tie Van Cleef bracelet – the best jewellery of the night!!!

With grey comes shimmery silvers and Lucy Lui in Versace and Kerry Washington in Vivienne Westwood Couture both dazzled at the Emmy’s, Kerry’s gown just looked effortless and sexy. I am going to call it tie between these two.

There were a number of Vivienne Westwood Couture gowns on the red carpet last night, with Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt leading the charge in this incredible corseted gown, which had a belt to nip in her tiny waist, and a split to add a touch of sexy – this dress had it all!

But my favourite shade of grey goes to Homeland’s actress Morena Baccarin who wore a sexy Basil Soda gown with a plunging neckline. I love the daring flash of cleavage, hey if you looked like Morena wouldn’t you flash them, and the David Webb drop earrings – this is a statement gown that totally floored me I love it!!!

Golden Globes: Heidi Klum In Custom Calvin Klein

HeidiKlum Golden Globes: Heidi Klum In Custom Calvin Klein %tag

Who: Heidi Klum

Where: At the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A custom nude silk crepe Calvin Klein Collection dress with plunging back, designed by Francisco Costa, teamed with a bold Lorraine Schwartz turquoise necklace and ring

Verdict: The supermodel looks amazing and I think it is all to do with that OMG necklace, which on first glance I thought was part of the dress. What makes this look one of the best is that it is simple-but-beautiful – just proofing that you don’t always have to go for the OTT look. I also think the blush tone helps – how gorgeous is that colour.

Great look – even better necklace!!!

Happy Halloween: It Seems J-Lo Was A Popular Choice!

It seems that everyone in La La land went crazy for Halloween this year, and over the weekend I saw that my Twitter-stream went crazy for Heidi Klum as a dead body, and Kim Kardashian as Poison Ivy, but for me it was all about Jennifer Lopez!!!

heidiklumhalloween Happy Halloween: It Seems J Lo Was A Popular Choice! %tagkimkhalloween Happy Halloween: It Seems J Lo Was A Popular Choice! %tag

My favourite of the two very different J-Lo costumes has to be Nicole Richie doing her her best J-Lo diva pout circa 2002!!! I love how Nicole completely goes for it with the fake tan, oversized sunglasses, huge hoop earrings, laced booties, and to top it off a hot pink Juicy Couture tracksuit showing off her cleavage, finished off with a Louis Vuitton handbag on her shoulder!!! Seriously classy!!!

I have to admit I was kind of hoping that Nicole Richie would do a dance-off style video as well to one of J-Lo’s famous tunes, Love Don’t Cost  a Thing, you know like she did to Britney Spears back in June. That would have just top off the whole thing for me.

Kelly Osbourne took a different approach and went for a sparkly mini-dress, similar to what Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammy’s. What is super disturbing about this picture though has to be Joan Rivers as – wait for it – Suri Cruise!!!

What was your favourite celeb Halloween costume?

I don’t know why but I already thought that Vivienne Westwood had stores in America, apparently not, so this week the Dame herself opened her first LA flagship store and showroom with a glamorous, starstudded evening. Which of course means gorgeous celebrities draped in the amazing wares of Vivienne Westwood.

Above with Vivienne Westwood is the face of her Palladium jewellery line Christina Hendricks; wearing a Vivienne Westwood couture pleated corset in black silk cotton, teamed with skinny trouser and fierce red lippy. But this pic is all about Viv herself, this knockout white floor-skimming gown with intricate cut-out detailing is exquisite.

Easily my best dressed of the night had to be the ever-glamorous Dita Von Teese, after see her this week in CSI as a murderer, it was nice to see her strutting her stuff on the red carpet. I love this black taffeta gown that she is wearing from the spring/summer 2011 Vivienne Westwood Gold label collection, it looks amazing teamed with a striking black fascinator and fish net gloves, oh and course her signature red lippy.

Who: Zoe Saldana

Wearing: A silver draped Vivienne Westwood Gold Label dress, paired with Vivienne Westwood red floral heels

Verdict: Wow, this dress really does show off her model proportions to the max, I love the contrast of the silver dress with the red floral heels. This look from head-to-toe is sexy!!!

Who: Actress Anna Kendrick

Wearing: A gold print dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection, teamed with black round toe Miu Miu heels

Verdict: The thing I love about Vivienne Westwood’s designs has to be the exquiste sihouettes, and this dress looks amazing on Anna. I am completely drawn to the draping detailing on the neckline and the gorgeous autumn print

Who: Malin Akerman

Wearing: A black printed dress from the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania pre-fall 2011 collection, teamed with silver peep-toe heels and an oversized black clutch

Verdict: This dress is sexy and so perfect for Malin. I really do like her presence on the red carpet, she has an attitude that I think a lot of actress are lacking, as always gorgeous and stunning.

Who: Kristin Davis

Wearing: A blue taffeta corset dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection, paired with black patent peep-toe platforms and a black clutch

Verdict: Nice to see someone going for a spot of colour. I love this corseted dress on Kristin, it nips in at her waist and adds drama with the draping, great choice.

Who: Heidi Klum

Wearing: A black sequinned dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection

Verdict: I love that it sparkles, it looks amazing on her, but it just doesn’t wow me like I think it should.

Sadly, to have a best dressed there has to be a worst dressed of the night, and that for me has to be Mischa Barton in this silver dress from the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania pre-fall 2011 collection. Out of all the celebs and dresses that were on offer, this was by far the worst, I just feel that everything from the colour to the draping, to her hair and the ribbon belt, nothing I am afraid works for me.
