Emmys 2014, Best Dressed.

Unlike the VMAs, this year’s Emmys did not disappoint in the fashion stakes. Numerous stars not only walked the red carpet, but absolutely owned it. From edgy, modern looks to classic and chic, the multitude of styles shown was amazing and it was certainly a difficult task to whittle down the list and decide who was the best of the night. Due to this troublesome task I not only have a top 3, but also some other ladies who grabbed the spotlight in their stylish ensembles. So, without further adieu, I am going to kick things off, not with my best of the best, but with some stylish starlets who certainly showed their fashion gusto.

 

Heidi Klum in Zac Posen:

Heidi was stunning in this red, floor-length gown which not only highlighted the supermodel’s gorgeous figure, but also introduced us to a new, softer, more flowing direction for Zac Posen.

 

Gwen Stefani in Versace:

Gwen had to be added into the fold for this, edgy, chic design. The red carpet veteran is one of the few stars who took a fashion risk and it certainly paid off.

 

Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli Couture 5:

Allison looked every inch the perfect, polished princess and there is nothing that I would change about this outfit, especially the belt – the yellow is amazing!

 

 

Amanda Crew in Max Azria Atelier:

Amanda kept it classy in this elegant, lady-like gown. She has sparked interest in me and I’m definitely going to keep an eye on this emerging star’s flawless fashion.

 

Michelle Monaghan in Giambattista Valli Couture 5:

Sleek, paired back and  modern in this Giambattista Valli gown Michelle Monaghan looked beautiful. I have to say that I am not a fan of her shoes though, but I’ll let her off this once.

 

Julie Bowen in Peter Som:

Perhaps a tad polarizing, but this look is perfect for the Modern Family star and Julie looks edgy and fun all in one.

 

Julia Roberts in Elie Saab:

Julia took a fashion risk in this short, sparkly number, but I definitely think it paid off. The bejeweled Elie Saab creation was unlike anything else worn on the carpet and showed off the 46-year-old’s sensational legs amazingly.

 

Sofia Vergara in Roberto Cavalli:

With regards to Sofia, if it ain’t broke, why fix it? She can rock a mermaid gown like no other and here she is staying true to herself whilst looking like a stylish sex bomb – exactly the way we like her!

 

Enough of ladies who did really well, now it’s time for the créme of the crop and to discuss the stars who were undoubtedly the best of the night. I can tell that you’re obviously very excited at this stage, so to add even more suspense into the fold, I’m going to show you my top 3 beginning with number 3. Working my way to the highly coveted top spot on my list let’s start here.

3: Camila Alves in Zuhair Murad’s Resort 2015:

Not only is Camila the envy of every woman in the world with Matthew McConaughey on her arm, but she also oozes sex appeal and sophistication both of which are highlighted in this look. The model and designer personified perfection in this stunning Zuhair Murad’s Resort 2015 floor-length gown with an unfathomable number of cut-outs. Stylish, sexy and striking are only 3 of the words that come to mind when describing this look.

 

2: Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier:

Yes, this gown is so amazing that it deserves a wide-shot. The talented actress looks every inch a movie star in this utterly ravishly Donna Karan gown. The simple black gown is made especially interesting with the gorgeous white train trailing behind. What makes this look a knock-out, however, are the perfectly placed and sized cut-outs which paired with criss-crossed straps leads to striking geometrics. She was so, so close to achieving the number 1 spot and it is very easy to see why.

 

1: Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano:

And here we have it, my undoubted number 1 – Sarah Hyland. The 23 year old Modern Family starlet epitomized class, style, elegance and edge, all whilst remaining youthful. This girl has had a fashion revelation and it was so refreshing to see that one can dress graceful and elegant whilst retaining a youthful flare! Wearing a top and skirt to the Emmys is a risky thing to do, especially when it’s a crop-top. The stylish youth pulled it off sensationally, however, and showed everyone that it is OK to dress young, fun and pretty whilst still making a fashion statement. I love everything about this look, from the crisp white and bold coral, to the sliver of skin shown on her mid-drift. The cherry on top has to be her accessorizing though with her hair, make-up and earrings polishing the outfit off perfectly and elevating it to that untouchable level. Have a closer look at her hair and make-up here:

So there you have it, my best ladies of the 2014 Emmy Awards. I have to say that the fashion was outstanding!
