I didn’t catch the Emmy’s red carpet last night because…well…I was engrossed in something far more important and pressing–binge watching season three of Downton Abbey. Late to the Downton game, I admit, but damn, that show has sucked me in. I like to think the period drama’s signature flowy frocks have subconsciously inspired these elegant and ethereal picks from last night’s red carpet showdown.
First up, Rose Byrne’s statuesque mid-drift bearing Calvin Klein number is at the top of my picks. Also bearing some mid-drift, Padma Lakshmi. Both killed it.
Claire Danes’ Armani Prive embellished gown was another favorite. She looked absolutely gorgeous (minus the boob deflation issue).
Zooey Deschanel looks ah-mazing in this icy blue J. Mendel stunner and even boasts the bling to match.
Also in J. Mendel, Kate Mara knocks it out of the park in white. Love the delicate peekabo mesh lace top juxtaposed with the crisp high-waisted skirt. Perfection.
Simple, elegant and white never fails and Taylor Schilling’s Thakoon halter is no exception.
And of course, as my ode to Downton, I couldn’t leave off Michelle Dockery (a.k.a. Lady Mary) in Prada. Gorgeous!
