Not everyone can be a winner at award shows, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look great while losing. This was certainly proved on Sunday night when television stars from Aaron Paul to Rose Byrne attended the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.
One particular color seemed to stand out on the red carpet, though, and that color was blue.
Tina Fey, who walked away with one of four possible awards for 30 Rock, showed off her curves in a simple form fitted royal blue halter gown. Nominated alongside Fey for Lead Actress in a Comedy was Edie Falco. Falco wore an even simpler royal blue halter than Fey’s solidifying the age-old notion that less is more.
Girls actress Allison Williams was unfortunately not a nominee but showed up looking like one anyway. Her bright and full pleated gown – also in royal blue – effortlessly brought out her blue eyes. Williams balanced out the fullness of her gown with simple but pretty waves.
Prior to interviewing the nominees on the carpet, Extra host Maria Menounos upstaged almost all of them in a deep blue gown accented by emerald jewels and nude lips. Perhaps my favorite part of her look was her messy fishtail braid, which ironically pulled the entire look together.
Although these next few TV stars didn’t get the blue memo, I couldn’t talk about the Emmy’s fashion without mentioning Taylor Schilling, Laura Dern, and Mindy Kaling.
Schilling, who’s best known recently for her work in Orange is the New Black, showed up in a no-fuss white halter gown, gold jewels and her hair in glamorous old Hollywood waves. For her first Emmys, Schilling seemed right at home on the carpet.
Dern, also a Lead Actress in a Comedy Series nominee, wore an embellished lemonade pink gown that was so glitzy it needed almost no accessories.
Like Williams, Kaling was sadly not nominated for her work on television. But still, Kaling radiated beauty. The Mindy Project mastermind chose a plum gown with bejeweled neckline cutouts and completed her look with a prim up-do and a silver clutch. Mindy, you wanna come style my life everyday? Please and thank you.
If some sort of fashion Emmy was to exist, I’m positive these women of television would find themselves as nominees.
