Ladies Who Lunch: 62nd Annual Emmy Awards Fashion

Last night, the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards aired and we definitely got a good fix of fashion.  While there were some disappointments (where were the fashion icons from Gossip Girl?) and some fashion train wrecks (if you can’t say something nice...), there was an awesome array of fashion at this years awards.
Claire Danes, who won Best Actress in a TV Movie for her portrayal of Temple Grandin, looked lovely in a champagne heavily beaded gown by  Armani Priv√©.  The gown had a quality about it that seemed to have been inspired by the famous Marilyn Monroe “Mr. President” gown by Jean Louis.  With her blonde tresses, this gown was a perfect fit.

There were so many gowns that I loved, but I have to give an all around thumbs up to the ladies from “Glee”.  Reflecting each one’s individuality and style, these women made fashion choices that were not only flattering, but also marked them for the winners that they are.
Winning the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Award, Jane Lynch looked fabulous in a purple taffeta one-shouldered gown by Ali Rahimi.  The statuesque actress was perfectly attired to accept the coveted award!

Jayma Mays was sexy, very put-together and elegant in a navy Burberry Porsum gown. Form fitting, this ruched strapless gown had a lot of movement with its cascade of ruffles at the bottom.

Looking ultra feminine in a tiered pink lace layered over black by Carolina Herrera, Dianna Agron graced the red carpet in style.  I loved the way the waist was emphasized with a black satin ribbon.

Event dressing for a plus sized woman can be a challenge, but Amber Riley proved that it can be done beautifully in a dress by Melissa Masse.  The Grecian inspired gown with a beaded waistline was a truly flattering look on this Glee star.

Bringing  a touch of fire to the group, Jenna Ushkowitz sizzled the Red Carpet in a scarlet Kevin Hall Gown. The halter gown with a slightly blousoned bodice was definitely a hit for the raven haired beauty.

But in my opinion, the biggest winner of all was Lea Michele. The sculpted strapless navy taffeta gown by Oscar de la Renta was stunning.  The spiraling cascade of ruffles gave the gown a dramatic edge that was an impressive show stopper.

My hat is off to these beautiful women and their incredible choices.

  1. I missed the Emmy's last evening, so thank you, Mdivani, for highlighting the most beautiful gowns. Other than the fashion, all I really cared about was Glee and Top Chef, anyway! All the gowns are stunning, but you're right, Lea Michelle's gown by Oscar de la Renta was definitely the show stopper. Her hair also went perfectly!
