Fine, I’ll admit I didn’t watch the Emmy’s either this year, and I usually don’t watch them either. But alas, I had to make my picks from the red carpet! For this post, I didn’t feel there were too many thumbs-down-worthy outfits, so here are Sass & Leather’s top 10 best dressed of the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards!
1. Lizzy Caplan
Famously known for her role as Janice Ian in one of my all time favourite movies, Mean Girls, Lizzy Caplan looked stunning the other night. Wearing a classic and fairly simple Donna Karan gown, it brought out her natural beauty. I loved it!
2. Mindy Kaling
Besides the fact that I’m obsessed with her show, The Mindy Project, I love that Mindy has a huge passion for fashion and style. I’ve noticed that she normally likes to wear bold yet cute outfits for certain events, and I liked how she actually took a simpler approach for the Emmy’s. Not to mention, I love how Kenzo has simple, bold details in their designs, like the metallic lines in this gown!
3. January Jones
Continuing in the red trend, January wore a gorgeous gown by Prabal Gurung. His designs are also quite bold, but still very chic, and she worked this dress well. It’s cute how it peeps her shoes at the front, but flows at the back. And her apple red lips only complimented the look.
4. Julia Roberts
A unique choice, Ms. Roberts chose to wear a super cute mini dress by Elie Saab Couture! It not only brought out the glimmer in her wide & bright smile, but it was bubbly too, complimenting her upbeat personality. Interesting choice for sure.
5. Gwen Stefani
We haven’t seen much of this LAMB for a while, but she definitely brought her game for the VMA’s as well as the Emmy’s. This metallic, shimmery boxy top and maxi skirt combo was absolutely to die for. And of course it’s none other than Atelier Versace; what else could be so divine?! There’s no doubt about it that I hope to be seeing [and hearing] more of the rich girl soon!
6. Heidi Klum
One of the top colours of this spring and summer was coral, in my opinion, and Heidi killed it in this deep coral Zac Posen gown of hers. She always looks absolutely gorg, but there’s something about this simple & effortless gown that just made her glow.
7. Lena Dunham
Another one of my fav actresses, leading in one of the oddest TV shows I have ever seen (Girls), Lena looked so cute at the Emmy’s! I’m normally not one for the poufy and frilly dresses, but something about the ombré in the fabric, and the way that it paired well with her new blonde bob looked so fun.
8. Sarah Hyland
I think she’s such a cute and funny actress, but what I really love about her is this outfit! That crop top and ruffled skirt are so hip. Like words almost can’t describe how much I love this outfit, in all its simplicity!!! Sarah Hyland, good choice on your part babe.
9. Natasha Lyonne
Apart of the best online series I have ever seen in my life, Orange is the New Black, Natasha totally changed up how I viewed her before! She plays a butcher character on the show as Nicky, but looked so whimsical in this Opening Ceremony number. I love the peplum around her shin area (sounds funny to type that), but it adds a little flare to the outfit!
10. Sofia Vergara
Last but not least, my Colombian queen, Sofia Vergara looked flawless. She definitely wore an outfit that showed all of her ass-ets 😉 The curved lines on the dress not only flattered her figure beautifully, but they added a chic touch to the white gown. In awe!
So after taking a few days to analyze (and find time to write this post), I hope you enjoyed my top 10 best dressed picks of the 2014 Emmy Awards! Did you think these were the best dressed?
