The 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards took place this weekend, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. In typical fashion, I didn’t watch the show (which didn’t get rave reviews anyway) but of course I tuned in to watch the red carpet. Overall I was pretty underwhelmed. There were a few standouts that I really enjoyed but most stars played it safe or missed the mark.
The red carpet looks I enjoyed:
Rose Byrne in Calvin Klein Collection.
This is what I’m talking about. Crop-top on the red carpet, done right. I love this two-piece look from Rose Byrne. The color is perfect, accessories simple, skirt length just right, and body on point. I love this look from head-to-toe. Understated, effortless, and still chic. She was easily my favorite of the night.
Kate Mara in J. Mendel.
Kate Mara was an (edgy) vision in white. I love her in this J. Mendel dress right off the runway from the Spring 2014 collection. She is working that high slit and the hair and makeup are right on. The straight bob with the deep part and the nude smokey eye pull this all together.
Lena Headey in Alessandra Rich.
I’m not super familiar with ‘Game of Thrones’ star Lena Headey but I really like her look for this event. Black often reads boring on the red carpet but I like this lace creation from London-based designer Alessandra Rich. This see-thru lace number is a risk, one that I think paid off. L.A.M.B. white pumps and a cool ring from Tina Thor complete the look.
Tina Fey in Narcisco Rodriguez.
My first thought when I saw Tina Fey on the red carpet? “Tina Fey has found her sexy!”. Gone are the boring black tea-length dresses and stuffy up-do’s. Kudos to Tina and her stylist for stepping outside the box and showing those curves (that we should have seen awhile ago). This cobalt blue is perfection and the halter neckline is so great on her. The loose waves and Fred Leighton jewelry are great compliments to the dress.
