Emmy’s Big Fashion Risk Takers
We’ve given you the best, and we’ve given you the worst. Now it’s time to run down which stars took the biggest fashion risks on the Emmy Awards red carpet.
Heidi Klum of Project Runway in Versace. The fashion risk? An almost cyborg-like color leaves Klum looking like something out of iRobot. But the color (pomegranat if you ask Tim Gunn) and the killer cut make this look an absolute payoff.
Michelle Dockery of Downton Abbey in Prada. The fashion risk? Wearing red to a red carpet is always risky. And the larger than life Scarlett O’Hara worthy ball gown skirt could have read as costumey. But the dramatic back of the halter keeps it fresh.
Kristen Connelly of House of Cards. Hello chevron. The fashion risk? A very young actress wearing a very body covering gown could have aged Connelly. But she rocks this print with utter confidence with bonus points for keeping the hair simple, and adding just a strong lip.
Kate Mara of House of Cards in J. Mendel. The fashion risk? This gown is more Paris fashion week than Emmy’s, plus its white after Labor Day…REALLY white. The dress is sheer architectural design, echoed by Mara’s uber slick crop cut. However I would have liked to have seen more softness in her hair and makeup to balance the severity of the dresses lines.
Former Dancing With The Stars pro Julianne Hough in Jenny Packham. The fashion risk? Leaving home without your pants. Julianne let it ALL hang out with this exposed girdle. But she succeeded where Game of Thrones Lena Heady did not with her similar look. This gown is sooo Marilyn Monroe, and Julianne’s perfect physique make the risk totally on trend, not trashy.
