Primetime Emmys 2013: My Best Dressed List

Primetime emmys best dressed Primetime Emmys 2013: My Best Dressed List %tag

It has been a while since I’ve enjoyed an awards red carpet, but on Sunday night the very best in TV donned some gorgeous gowns for the Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. Normally the TV Emmys are a little hit and miss, but this year it seems everyone really upped their game and I fell in love with a lot of looks – from the sophisticated ice-blue J.Mendel that Zooey Deschanel wore to the romantic Marchesa gown that Kerry Washington stunned in.

Trying to decide on my favourite look was hard, these seven looks were easily my favourites, but for me the two minimal-yet-exquisite looks – the sleek and glamorous Calvin Klein dress that Rose Byrne went for and the vibrant statement Ralph Lauren gown worn by Allison Williams were miles ahead of the rest. Normally I would got for dramatic, verging on the side of OTT and usually of the princess variety, but I was blown away by how perfect these two looks were.

If I had to choose between the two, and it is hard, I think I would go with Allison Williams, her strapless corset Ralph Lauren just looked incredible on TV – the bold colour teamed with the minimal structure to the shape of the gown worked perfectly. But it was her gorgeous tousled, wavy hair and flawless face, and those Fred Leighton gold bracelets that narrowly put her head of Rose.

Rose was a very close second though in this custom petal silk crepe Calvin Klein Collection top and skirt – she looks smoulderingly hot in this sexy two-piece. I love how simple and streamlined this look is while being so on trend with the crop top. My favourite bit of this look is the criss-cross detailing as well as the colour it is divine.

Like with Allison, Rose also finishes her look with gorgeous hair and make-up as well as great accessories, I love her silver Jimmy Choo ‘tube’ clutch and her Tiffany & Co earrings.

From minimal chic to two very different white looks, both gorgeous and both looked spectacular on the red carpet. First up we have Scandal actress Kerry Washington wearing a romantic Marchesa gown from the labels spring/summer 2014 collection.

Kerry’s was the closest to a princess dress and I adore the floral appliqués, the ribbon bodice and the tulle train – she looked incredible and it worked with her same colour Edie Larker clutch and delicate jewels by Fred Leighton.

At the other end of the all-white scale we have Kate Mara in a graphic lace embroidered J.Mendel gown featuring a silk crepe asymmetrical wrap skirt. I love the sex appeal of this dress with the peek-a-boo mesh-like lace and the super high thigh-high split. I also have to give her credit for the over-styling that totally paid off with the white-edged clear platform heels and white manicure – simply gorgeous.

Next up we have January Jones, who gave me the biggest surprise, no sexy split, no edgy look, just a gorgeous romantic dress. Custom-made for her by Givenchy, this dusky pink strapless dress really stood out on the red carpet because of the intricate detailing of the floral lace skirt and her flawless make-up.

Another elegant look came from New Girl star Zooey Deschanel wearing an ice-blue J. Mendel column gown from the Resort 2014 collection featuring asymmetrical folded detail at the waist and thigh-high side slit. This is a sophisticated look that looked stunning on her and was perfectly styled with silver accessories – I really love her sequinned Edie Parker clutch.

My final spot in my seven best dressed is for Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery who was dressed for grabbing the headlines in this striking two-tone red Prada halter-style gown with its high-low hem at the front and cute bow detailing at the bow.

With a raised hemline at the front the heels are very important and these double-strap beauties also by Prada are perfect – delicate and glamorous. I also love her red jewelled clutch.

I think out of the seven looks this might be the one that splits opinion.

I know I said my seven best dressed, but there was something about Claire Danes ethereal Giorgio Armani Privè gown that I just couldn’t leave out. The nude flare gown looked gorgeous on TV, the tulle bodice embroidered with sequins and the lace skirt really shined, however all the pictures don’t do it justice. But one thing I can’t love is her faux-bob and vibrant lippy – that comes across whatever the medium!!!

So who gets your best dressed from this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards?

I Give It A Year: Rose Byrne In Erdem

rose byrne erdem I Give It A Year: Rose Byrne In Erdem %tagWho: Actress Rose Byrne

Where: At the New York premiere of her new flick ‘I Give It A Year’

Wearing: A long-sleeve floral embroidered Erdem dress featuring sheer panels from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with metallic Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: There is something about Rose Byrne, she kind of has the Diane Kruger feel for me, she always looks stylish and takes fashion risks. This is a gorgeous dress, sporting a floral design that Erdem is known for, but with a moody edge of the blue, yellow, purple and dark red flowers.

I love how Erdem has made this floral print look modern and sexy with the black sheer panels to the waist, arms, shoulders and hemline – it really adds a different element to the dress, which could have been a little plain without.

Finishing off her ladylike look, the Aussie actress styled her hair with messy loose waves, stunning smoky eyes and great heels – those metallic silver Jimmy Choos are perfection.

I really can’t stress how much I love this look – great job Rose – I can’t wait to see what other looks she brings out for this tour.

Are you a fan of Rose Byrne in this dark floral dress?

Cover Loving: Rose Byrne Looks Gorgeous For Flare

flareaug Cover Loving: Rose Byrne Looks Gorgeous For Flare %tag

I have said it several times before but Flare is a fab magazine and they really do produce gorgeous covers, and the August issue with the stunning Rose Byrne is another example of a great high-fashion cover.

Shot by Max Abadian, Rose is a picture of elegance wearing a stunning red lace Marchesa dress from the autumn/winter 2012, which if you are thinking it looks familiar it is probably because it is the same one that Jennifer Lawrence wore on her Hunger Games promo tour, and it is quite similar to the one that Blake Lively wore last year at CinemaCon.

The accompanying editorial spread is just as stunning, Rose looks incredible in a variety of autumn looks from labels such as Christopher Kane, Marc Jacobs, and Balenciaga, styled by Elizabeth Cabral. I am also loving her make-up, her Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in shade 01 on the cover is perfection.FlareRose2 Cover Loving: Rose Byrne Looks Gorgeous For Flare %tag

In the interview, Rose discusses her off-duty style, red carpet preparation, as well as talking about that gorgeous Elie Saab jumpsuit that she wore to the 2012 SAG Awards, which I think kind of started a red carpet trend on Elie Saab jumpsuits, and her sparkly Vivienne Westwood Oscar dress.

On her Elie Saab jumpsuit at the 2012 SAG Awards: “When I wore that jumpsuit, Penny [her stylist] and I fully discussed that you can’t please everybody, that it will probably be loved by Vogue and hated by People. It’s just clothes, it should be fun. It’s been good, to take risks knowing that’s the reality of it.”

On her Vivienne Westwood dress at the 2012 Academy Awards: 
“[Vivienne Westwood] worked so well with us altering it, it ended up totally different from the original dress.”

On preparing for red carpet: “You’ve got to get your stamina ready. Particularly for an awards ceremony, that’s a different league. But I have my group around me, and it’s fun. I think for the red carpet in general it’s important to keep it youthful. A lot of people can look very dressed up and old and severe. That’s sort of my worst fear, is erring on that side.”

On her pre-red carpet ritual: “Try to get a good night’s sleep, don’t go out at all the night before. In the morning, get some exercise, for mental health. Then it’s just fun.”

On her off-duty style: “I go through phases. But I mostly dress in high street clothing, like Urban Outfitters. Every day, really.” FlareRose1 Cover Loving: Rose Byrne Looks Gorgeous For Flare %tag

LFW AW12: Pringle Of Scotland – Classy Knitwear

Pringle8 LFW AW12: Pringle Of Scotland   Classy Knitwear %tag

This was one of my favourite shows, not only was the front row glamorous, but the collection had a modern-yet-contemporary feel about it that made me want every single piece that came down the runway especially all the coats.

Inspired by Alistair Carr’s return to the UK and his memories of youth, there is a Clueless-meets-school girl vibe to the collection in the twin-sets, box pleats and flashes of neon pink. Carr delved into the Pringle archives and produced a very classy line of knitwear staples with everything from polo necks, twin-sets, ribbed knitted dresses.

There seemed to be a lot more focus on outerwear this season, which I adored, I loved all the coats from the voluminous cocoon shapes in contrasting autumnal orange and navy, to the military inspired tailored, pocketed coats in cobalt blue and grey,  and the gorgeous short bombers with high-collars – all teamed with flattering trousers, skirts, and dresses.

Top of my wishlist has to be the navy coat with the giant pink lapels – I adore this. One thing I wish would go away however has to be the dip-dye hair, I am still just not feeling it.

The front row at Pringle was one of my best shows I attended this season, and my first LFW sighting of Olivia Palermo. But who I was most excited about seeing was the gorgeous Rose Byrne, who just looked incredible in her autumn/winter 2012 Pringle dress, and I have to say she is more beautiful up close.

84th Oscars: Rose Byrne In Vivienne Westwood

RoseByrne 84th Oscars: Rose Byrne In Vivienne Westwood %tag

Who: Bridesmaids’ star Rose Byrne

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A one-shoulder midnight-blue sequinned Vivienne Westwood slinky gown, teamed with her blunt bob, Chanel drop earrings and Jimmy Choo ‘New Linda’ heels

Verdict: I have to admit I was a little surprised that this was Vivienne Westwood, and I don’t think I would have believed it except Rose told Ryan Seacrest on E! News. After being wowed at the SAG Awards when Rose wore a jumpsuit and getting up close and personal to her at the Pringle of Scotland LFW show and seeing how gorgeous she is in real life, I think I have a little crush on her. I love the glamour of this gown, with its all-over sequins and draping detailing to the front, and it fits her perfectly. I think on anyone else this could have been a boring look but on her it looks modern and fresh. I like it.

SAG Awards: Rose Byrne Best Dressed In Elie Saab

RoseByrneElieSaab SAG Awards: Rose Byrne Best Dressed In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Rose Byrne

Where: At the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony in Los Angeles

Wearing: A white, deep v-neck fully embroidered Elie Saab jumpsuit with structured shoulders, from the Elie Saab Haute Couture archive collection, accessorised with Chanel fine jewellery, a Lena Erziak clutch and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: Rose takes my best dressed crown for this year’s SAG Awards mainly because her daring risk totally paid off with this exquisite sparkling jumpsuit. Totally unconventional, but worked perfectly with her fabulous sleek bob, I loved the Seventies vibe of the outfit, and she completely out-shined all the floor-skimming gowns. I do love it when actresses take risks on the red carpet and this was the perfect award ceremony among her peers to do just that and I am so glad that it paid off. LOVE it!!!
