Best Dressed: Emmys 2014

Emmys2014

I almost can’t believe that it was already a year ago that I did my last Emmy’s roundup – well almost, as this year’s ceremony was held a month earlier than usual. Some of my favourite actors and actresses were in attendance, amongst them Mindy Kahling (The Mindy Project), Claire Danes (Homeland) and Zooey Deschanel (New Girl). Rounding up the best dressed of the evening (in my humble opinion) wasn’t easy as I don’t think there is one look that truly stood out, but nevertheless here goes!

1. Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli Couture

I love a good princess moment, so this was surprisingly easy to decide on. I love how unexpected the punch of yellow is and obviously the cutesy bow detail. Keeping her accessories minimal was a good call, I just think a brighter lip would have been even prettier.

2. Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier

I love this modern equivalent of Julia Robert’s iconic Valentino monochrome look. It struck the perfect balance between opulence and minimalism. The deep side part was pure genius on Lizzy’s part!

3. Julliane Hough in DSquared 

All white can easily look bridal, but this elegant and simple look keeps it looking sleek along with Juliane’s laid back style and attitude. White and a great tan is unbeatable.

4. Heidi Klum in Zac Posen

She rarely dresses age appropriate, but this goes to show what is a great colour and good fit can do for you. The dress really makes the best of her figure without looking too garish or sexy. I wish she’d dress like this more often.

5. Kaley Cuoco in Monique Lhullier

Come on, tulle, a-line and my favourite colour combination (pink&red) all in one? Love! Kaley’s new edgier hairstyle adds some edge to an expected look for her and I love it.

6. Behati Prinsloo in Prada

I love how this Prada dress reminds me of my dancing days yet is elegant and understated. The sweeping train adds just the right amount of drama to this low-key look. Best pony of evening as well!

7. Julia Roberts in Elie Saab

Breaking all the ‘age-appropriate’ rules is Julia Roberts in a low-cut mini. On book it doesn’t sound like something I’d like, but on her it just looks amazing. The large embellishments make it more playful than sexy and the hemline hits just on the sweet spot.

8.  Michelle Monaghan in Giambattista Valli Couture

Another beauty in white! It is very evident that red and white were the dominant colours of the evening. I’d like to start off with a note on how beautiful her hair was styled and finish by saying that her minimalist approach beats the runway cape look by miles! White and gold is always a winner, even if you don’t get to deliver your speech!

9. Halle Berry in Elie Saab

Another actress who usually treads the line between sexy and inappropriate. This look is firmly on the sexy side with the perfect slit and a modern grecian-goddess look.

10. Julie Bowen in Peter Som

I wouldn’t say this look is exactly the most memorable, but I felt it deserved a spot as Julie looked very pretty. The soft side-swept waves do it for her! I also like the halterneck and pleated skirt combination to make the best of her svelte frame. Add to that a fun print and I’m sold!
