Best Bling of the 2011 Emmy Awards

Just in time to get us excited for all the new shows premiering this week, the Modern Family Awards Primetime Emmy Awards aired last night. We all have our favorite TV shows but what was your favorite red carpet look? I’ll highlight our favorite dresses, etc in an upcoming post but right now I want to highlight the best jewelry looks.

Colorful Gems

The queens of TV are not afraid to go with bold colors. The biggest color of the night in dresses was red…but what about in jewelry? We saw a lot of emerald jewelry worn in many different styles but our favorite of the night was Sofia Vergara(pictured right). She proudly gushed over her Columbian emerald earrings. We also loved her large cuff bracelet but with earrings like that it didn’t get much attention.

Heidi Klum wore a large pair of colorful flower earrings and matching ring. Emmy’s host Jane Lynch wore a cluster of colorful multi-gemstones in a diamond shaped pair of earrings. With that array of colors, you can wear these earrings with many different outfits.

Classic Diamonds

Nothing like sparkly diamonds to complete an outfit. Lots of diamond jewelry graced the red carpet but there were some special pieces that really stood out. Kate Winslet who won an Emmy last night, paired her red dress with long diamond earrings that added just the right amount of sparkle to her outfit.

Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss looked fantastic in her champagne-hued embroidered Marchesa gown paired with chandelier earrings and a statement cocktail ring.

Edgy Accessories

Sure most of the women looked pretty and classy in their gowns and sparkly jewelry but we love when stars get a little edgy. Glee’s Dianna Agron showed her edgy side with dark spike earrings. Loved this look. Evan Rachel Wood kept up her bad girl image with a black cap-sleeve Elie Saab gown exposing her tattoos. She wore a dark think cuff bracelet for a rocker feel.

We also saw lots of black diamonds on stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Amy Poehler and Emmy winner Julie Bowen. Both Gwyn and Julie’s earrings were paired with sparkly white diamonds to get a sexy contrast. I also loved Gwyneth’s layered black and white bracelets. Ice has a pair of similar Black diamond earrings as the ones she wore. What did you think of her midriff baring Pucci dress?

Best Look

The winner of the night in my books (and most of our Facebook fans) was another lady in red,  Nina Dobrev from Vampire diaries wore a vintage styled diamond choker necklace. She was colorful and classic yet edgy all at the same time. Va va voom!

Who was your best dressed of the Emmy’s?

Zac Posen Gets Our Emmy Vote

Have any of you been attending New York Fashion Week shows? Or following it on Twitter like me? I love all the excitement around all the latest fashion trends hitting the runways. It’s so much fun to see all the glamorous models and beautiful clothes and accessories. One designer I had my eye on was Zac Posen. I managed to get a glimpse of his 2012 Spring Collection and was drooling over the evening gowns that are totally red carpet worthy.

Since the Emmy Awards are this Sunday I thought it might be fun to pick a few of Zac Posen’s gowns and predict who might wear it on the Emmy red carpet. At last year’s Emmy’s Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks wore a feathery lavender Zac Posen gown that definitely turned heads.

Take a look at these gowns and tell us who you can image wearing it at the Emmy’s.

This satin gown, with the combination of bold jewelry has a beautiful old Hollywood feel to it. Stunning. I can see this look on classy stars like Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl or Christina Applegate who will be staring in a new TV comedy Up All Night. Past Emmy winner Claire Danes would also shine in this gown.

This curve-hugging dress has Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez written all over it. However, I wouldn’t mind seeing someone like 30 Rock’s Jane Krakoski or Jennifer Love Hewitt in something like this to change it up.

Even though this is technically a Spring collection, I think this shade of blue is so perfect for Fall. Especially paired with the blue jewels the model is wearing. Would look great paired with London Blue Topaz jewelry I hope someone walks the red carpet with it. I’m picturing some young starlets like Blake Lively or Lea Michelle of Glee. Perhaps even Eva Longoria, she looks ravishing in everything.

I’d love to see Emmy nominees Gwyneth Paltrow or Kate Winslet in this or something similar. A nice cuff bracelet would complete this look.

What do you think of these gowns? Which stars do you predict will wear these looks?
