Best of the Emmy Red Carpet 2014: Metallics, Nudes and Everything Else

26 Aug

Completing the trilogy of Emmy red carpet posts and while there are unifying themes for the first two parts (black/white and bold color) this is a best of the rest with sparkly silver delights, capes and a variety of lengths just to mix it up.

Christine BaranskiThere’s a reason why this post on Diane Lockhart’s style is the most viewed on TV Ate My Wardrobe and Christine Baranski’s navy and caped (!) gown is giving me chills. I am in awe of this magnificent woman. During the ceremony when Josh Charles didn’t win she leaned forward and gave his shoulder a squeeze; making me sad all over again that there will be no more whiskey drinking or dancing on screen.

Amy PoehlerLooking like an Art Deco dream is Amy Poehler in Theia and while she might never receive an Emmy for Parks and Rec (come on guys you have one more chance, ditto Jon Hamm) this is a winner.

Hayden+Panettiere+Arrivals+66th+Annual+Primetime+eNZynLTBooPlKeeping on the silver streak is Hayden Panettiere in a plunging fitted sequined chiffon Lorena Sarbu gown and the silhouette here is incredible. Sometimes the best red carpet shots are the unposed kind like this one.

Kiernan Shipka emmysThe color is maybe a bit too muted, however Kiernan Shipka continues her excellent sartorial choices with a tea-length Antonio Berardi dress and the sash beading is what really tips this into sublime territory. During the red carpet I found a photo of Shipka from the 2010 Emmys giving me a whole lot of protective feelings about what Shipka is going to do next and how we’ve watched her grow up during her time on Mad Men.

Jessica WilliamsA few days ago Jessica Williams gave a sneak peek of her gold embellished knee length Angela Dean dress on Instagram and it looked fantastic paired with Nike sneakers and even better on the red carpet.

Sarah SilvermanE! are not satisfied with just mani-cam, GlamCam 360, shoe cam so this year they decided to take a more invasive look with clutch cam to showcase the bags and their contents. While most just  had their phones, Sarah Silverman showed off her contents including her vape pen (Ilana approves) taking over the role of Elisabeth Moss mischief maker. Silverman also ditched her shoes when she went dashing up to collect her Emmy – a smart move – and she looks incredible in plunging Marni. She called Michael Sheen “Mr Fancy Pants Sheen” which is also adorable.

Allison WilliamsGoing full prom is Allison Williams in a very Allison Williams looking Giambattista Valli Couture gown. I like it and especially the dash of yellow.

Lucy LiuLast year nude gowns dominated and I’m glad the 2014 Emmys weren’t a repeat of this trend, however Lucy Liu wears this ethereal color well in a beautiful Zac Posen draped gown.
