The 2009 Emmy’s were a delight for the eye. Trends that we saw on the New York Fashion Week runways were brought to the red carpet.
Classic shapes were popular, as were out-there embellishments and modern jewelry. The warm weather was obviously playing a role in the star’s beauty focus– the majority had their do’s up and make-up seemed light and summery, with a few contrasts.
Leighton Meester in Bottega Veneta looked very high fashion with red lips and knotted fabric that put the accent on the shoulder – another Fashion Week trend. To stay in the Gossip Girl world, let’s take a closer look at Blake Lively. The actress showed off her amazing figure in a red Versace with a thigh-high split and plunging V-neck. Gorgeous!
Exotic beauty Padma Lakshmi made a statement in a draped purple halter neck Badgley Mischka. The red rosettes on her side accented the chef’s bodyline, which is there to be shown! And how feminine did Drew Barrymore look in her Monique Lhuillier? The soft pink gown got all the attention and the spontaneous actress glowed. Mila Kunis also went for Lhuillier and looked stunning in this tulle oasis of a gown! A very pregnant Heidi Klum looked stunning in a tight Marchesa gown and spiced her classic dress with big and bold jewelry. Klum wasn’t the only one who picked Marchesa for the red carpet – Olivia Wilde showed off her petite frame in an embroidered Marchesa that we also saw on the runway.
The illusion-of-showing-skin trend was incorporated in this design, making it look like a one-shoulder garment.We also loved Kate Walsh in her J. Mendel dress. The strapless draped dress made her look like a nowadays goddess and we heard that her clutch was very recession friendly being from Aldo for only $30! - Chloé van der Wel
